One can only imagine what twisted statistics were used to come up with this little gem.
Aw cmon Roomy. You can do better than that. You are almost getting as bad as Bully....those are articles are a bit dated....
Not necessarily and quite frankly I dont give a damn. Obviously you are trying to stir something up. Some would even call it trolling.
Let me save you some time...I surrender. Lets give all the blacks massive reparations, release all black prisoners with amnesty and put all the whites in prison in their place. Never mind the whole circular logic argument I am sure you have ready to spew. In fact, I find your argument so compelling that I think we should ship all whites back to where ever they came from and keep them there forever isolated so they can't screw up the world ever again.
And just to be fair...
There seems to be a bit of racism regarding prisoners in the UK. How come you didn't bring that up too, Roomy?
You're assuming that these studies are completely unbiased, but they're based on false premises.
False premise 1: Blacks are poor and povery causes crime - While it is true that a greater percentage of blacks than whites are considered 'poor,' there's still a huge number of poor white people. However, poor black people are far more likely to commit crimes than poor whites because of the culture that's pushed on them. Povery doesn't cause crime. Disregard for the law, the rights of others, and morality causes crime. Poverty is simply a catalyst.
False premise 2: The exact same percentages of whites and blacks are murderers - The PC crowd would like to kill this one, but as of this time, including all of these suspects that supposedly got away because they're white, a far greater percentage of blacks are murderers than whites. Add to this the fact that the percentage of convicted white murderers on death row is far greater than the percentage of convicted black murderers on death row, we start to see a different picture.
False premise 3: The same percentage of crimes along racial lines have the same circumstances - Again, a harsh reality is that, due once again to cultural biases far more that 'the white man keeping them down,' blacks are far more likely to live in gang-infested slums. A far greater percentage of black murder victims than whites are killed in gang wars, bad drug deals, and other circumstances that do not merit the death penalty. White victims, on the other hand, are more likely to be the victims of premeditated murder, a capital offense. Poor, black, inner city ghettos lend themselves more to crimes of passion than poor, white, rural trailer parks.
False premise 4: No race is more likely to vote along racial lines than another - If you really believe this, you're in a fantasy land. Thanks to the culture pushed by the NAACP, blacks think they have to 'stand up for each other,' meaning they are far more likely lie on the stand and deliver innocent verdicts simply because the person is black, and for no other reason. This, not racism, is why black witnesses and juries are considered unreliable.
These studies, like most of the bullcrap studies I see everywhere to prove so many bullcrap theories, fail to take outside influences into account. One of the basic requirements for a scientific study is that ALL variables are considered. When you fail to take into account all variables, you nullify the entire scientific process.
Now id like to see how each case breaks down in the study on those who should have been sentenced to death row and werent.
Did you even read what I wrote? If so, are you brain dead? The point of my post is that skin color is NOT a deciding factor, but these studies made it seem that way so they could blame whitey for yet another false injustice.
Yes, I am crazy. They let us inmates on the computer when they aren't using them to schedule electro-shock therapy sessions. My post was to head off that big, long (and mostly wasteful discussion) about how white US males are evil and everything is our fault. It was a response TO a troll. I respond in a considered manner when someone posts something of import and worth discussing. As for intelligence, that is a matter of perspective. Regarding my likes and dislikes: I dont much like Europeans in general; mostly because they appear arrogant and hypocritical and they just love bashing the United States of America and its people and government. I like trolling Europeans even less and beneath them are immature European trolls.
Did it ever occur to you that perhaps more blacks are on death row because they commit more murders? What have you to say about the racism apparent in UK's justice system? Hobbits reply was right on the money.
I am touchy about trolling Europeans who think they know what's best for the US and its citizens. Those Europeans who are arrogant, vain and obnoxious. Those Europeans who think the US is bad and Europe is good. That is what I am touchy about.
I dont care that the situation hasn't changed because I believe those you are so concerned about are where they belong; not because of racism but because they were found guilty in a trial of commiting a crime.
