Down the Rabbit Hole.
“There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.”
― Frank Herbert
You might have to sit through 30 seconds of a BP propaganda add, but it's worth it to hear Barack Hussein share his thoughts. I have been doing some research on arrest statistics in the U.S. and I could explain to him why so many young black men don't like the police. It has to do with their own behavior.
Hey Harry,(captaincrunch)The best part of the video was the BP propaganda add. It was the closest thing to the truth on the whole video.I also summon the unholy demons of 'cynicism, sarcasm and apathy" every time Barack Insane Obama opens his pie hole.
Hey Harry,(captaincrunch)I got a pic of Obama when he was a teenager 'smooking from a Hookah' or marijunia water pipe with a picture of "Idi Amin" up on his wall behind him.That pretty much sums it up.
The guy has no business in running his trap about this because there's an ongoing investigation, in which one presumes that those doing the investigation are trying to find the truth. The problem is, the truth is not going to turn out to be the one Obama and the Ferguson crowd want. So he's milking it for what it's worth. The man is just a cheap, tin plated politician.
Often in the evenings, especially on the weekend, I will listen to the police scanner. My own suburb stays pretty quiet. A few traffic stops, maybe a medical call or two, someone reporting loud music next door or a suspicious vehicle slowly circling the block. Now and then there might be a fight or a drunk to haul off to jail. Pretty boring stuff.So I will listen to the Minneapolis police calls. There the calls are constant. There are the same routine calls as there are here, but more often than not the dispatchers are giving the police descriptions of those who have just committed a crime. The victims are those who have been robbed on the street, who have been beaten, who have had their home or place of business broken into, who are convenience store clerks or hotel clerks who have been robbed, who are bus passengers who have been threatened or assaulted or those who have been threatened by gangs roaming the streets looking for trouble. And the majority of the descriptions include the words "young, black male." I have been noticing a trend toward females becoming just as vicious as the males.Just to satisfy my own curiosity I kept track for a couple of weeks and the results were an average of seven out of ten calls were about black males. The rest were pretty evenly divided between black females, Hispanic males and whites.But then, I am an old white woman and therefore racist, so what do I know.
The facts speak for themselves. Numbers give a pretty good picture of actual events. But I know exactly what you are talking about. There's a train of thought in this country that minorities are "victims" and therefore deserve special consideration. They should be given precedence in education, in hiring, their businesses should receive preferential treatment in government biding. What the liberal mind set doesn't recognize is that until everyone is treated the same, the schisms between races will continue. I watched a show on tv about a young black gang banger who got shot in a robbery. The government spent over a million dollars on his medical treatment, provided him with a special truck fitted with hand controls, and was giving him cash benefits each month. The government paid all his medical bills. Would they have done that for me if I was the perpetrator of a robbery and was similarly injured? Not a chance. Blacks constitute about 13% of the overall population and the stats , no matter whose you use, indicate they commit between 50% and 65% of all violent crimes in America. But if you say that, you are immediately assailed by people claiming that the laws in the country are written in a way prejudicial to minorities. How so? What is there about robbery, murder, drug dealing and the like that should be mitigated by the color of a person's skin?There are large parts of Atlanta that not even the cops will go into after dark, and the vast majority of the police force in Atlanta is black. Somebody needs to explain to me why that situation is due to prejudice against a minority.It will just go on that way though. The Ferguson thing illustrates the point.
With Blacks race is always the issue. I for one am tired of it.-Moe
I'm weary of it as well. If they want to be treated like everybody else, then they need to quit blaming all their problems on others and address some of the relevant problems within their own communities. Other people can't fix their problems by making excuses for them or treating them like children.
the minute bill cosby told black males to support their kids and get jobs he was suddenly invisible.as illegitimacy increases -no fathers in the home- i expect to see crime statistics rise for kids of other backgrounds also.deb h.
My wife told me about a friend of her's whose husband has to pay child support. The mom has 16 kids by 16 different men, all of whom are paying her monthly. It's a business, not a family.
