"Distribution"....if it explains racism than it must explain the population shifts.
1.Wow….we keep hearing about white privilege, racism, oppression, ‘no justice-no peace,’ ‘kill the police,’ and ‘whitey…’
And there appears not to be any other side of the charges. Almost as those the charges are factual and provably so. Yesterday, the release of the 2020 Census
figures disproves what passes for arguments that favor those charges.
2. If you engage Democrats/Progressives about those charges, you learn two things: they know nothing, and they lie about everything.
Recently, I asked one, and this was his ‘proof’ of the slurs and smears of America and of white people:
“White Privilege is evident in the distribution
of wealth and power in America, historically-based and perpetuated via laws,
educational advantages, inherited wealth, Good Ol' Boy networks, racial prejudices, etc., but some Whites are disgruntled because they do not believe they share in it.” The Myth Of White Privilege
Of course, there are no such laws
. See what I mean about them lying?
3. Now….consider the Census, a statement of the distribution of people around the nation.
“The 331,449,281 U.S. residents counted in the 2020 census represent a population increase of 7.4% from the 2010 count…” Census 2020: First results show near historically low population growth and a first-ever congressional seat loss for California
“ Three states lost population
from 2010 to 2020: West Virginia, Mississippi, and Illinois.” Ibid
“The South is the fastest growing region in the United States, according to newly released data from the 2020 census
. The region had a 10.2% increase in population
over the last decade, …
The South includes Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.”
South is the fastest growing region, according to 2020 US Census results
4. Some states grew, some states shrunk in population.
That’s because there are people living there, moving there or away….
People with different views, needs, reasons for staying or moving. Some might have desired to move…but didn’t have the money. Some kept putting the move off…..people do that. They make decision
that suit them.
Remember how that moron…er, Democrat,….said the lack of ‘distribution’ of blacks in various occupations and income quintiles proves racism?
Nope.....just like the Census, people do things because it suits them, or because they aren't interested in changing.
Imagine how you'd laugh if someone told you it was your fault they didn't move. But that's how they explain racism.....your fault.
5. "If there were a contest for the most stupid idea in politics, my choice would be the assumption that people would be evenly or randomly distributed in incomes, institutions, occupations or awards, in the absence of somebody doing somebody wrong."
Thomas Sowell - The Dumbest Idea
…..or population centers.
Anyone saying that racism explains how the distribution of people in various states is racist?
