I'm saying that those statistics, if true, couldn't possibly account for the entire disparity between the number of minorities in jail compared to the number of whites in jail.
I did read it. I'm saying those might account for a small percentage of the difference between imprisoned blacks and whites, but certainly not the whole difference.
The majority of those statistics are completely unrelated to racism. I mean come on, if "people of color make up about 30 percent of the United States’ population [and] account for 60 percent of those imprisoned" it cannot be blamed on cops racial profiling. Minorities simply commit more crimes than white people, it's statistics.
And the article supports treating all people as equals and not paying attention to their color, which is exactly what affirmative action goes against by considering their skin color.
If black people are overly-represented in jail, white people must be underrepresented. Maybe we should make it easier for white people to be jailed.
... Seriously, how do you not understand the stupidity of affirmative action?
"You aren't truly 'black' if you aren't a liberal democrat dependent on government handouts."
I think I agree with the general gist of what you're saying, but my God that's a horrible quote.
I don't think you know what a troll is.
What I mean is that if you don't know someone's religious beliefs, you just assume that they're theists because most people are.
Not really because theism is the default.
If there's a semi-attentive teacher in the room, it's unlikely that anyone would dare to use a cell phone on a test.
A more pressing issue is the distraction they cause, but students are going to find a way to distract themselves no matter what.
Wow, maybe you could use some more attention.
That's exactly why it's not a woman's rights issue. It's not like men can have abortions and women can't.
Agree with abortions... but making abortion into a whole women's rights issue is fucking stupid.
It depends if you could remember your past lives.
If yes, than yes.
If no, than no.
