so are you trying to say that white people don't commit any of the crimes that you describe?
but we all know they do. just like there are many fatherless white children who drop out of school.
you white folks need to clean up your own mess before you can claim to be able to tell others how they should live. how about starting with not killing each other any more.
page 13.

also on page 12 it seems that the only murder stat that blacks lead in are drug related deaths. the white folks lead the rest. and it looks like you guys love to kill your fellow workers. and old people. what's that all about?
Have you got a GED at least?

You are embarrassingly stupid when it comes to interpreting data. We've been through this many times on this thread and you still cling to your simplistic black racism like a moth to a candle flame.

....and to your Liberal racist propaganda links.......

Lies, damned lies and statistics.

Don't White People Kill Each Other, Too?
And yet we keep hearing about black-on-black crime because it fits the false media narrative.
What Will, Steele and O'Reilly failed to mention is the exacting truth that white Americans are just as likely to be killed by other whites. According to Justice Department statistics (pdf), 84 percent of white people killed every year are killed by other whites.
In fact, all races share similar ratios. Yet there's no outrage or racialized debate about "white on white" violence. Instead, the myth and associated fear of "black on black" crime is sold as a legitimate, mainstream descriptive and becomes American status quo.
The truth? As the largest racial group, whites commit the majority of crimes in America. In particular, whites are responsible for the vast majority of violent crimes. With respect to aggravated assault, whites led blacks 2-1 in arrests; in forcible-rape cases, whites led all racial and ethnic groups by more than 2-1. And in larceny theft, whites led blacks, again, more than 2-1.
Given this mathematical truth, would anyone encourage African Americans to begin shooting suspicious white males in their neighborhoods for fear that they'll be raped, assaulted or murdered? Perhaps George Zimmerman's defenders should answer that question. If African Americans were to act as irrationally as Zimmerman did, would any rationale suffice to avoid arrest?

Black Racism is like prostitution - you'll never stamp it out which means it will keep f*cking a lot of innocent people.

it very plainly says that 84% of the white people killed in 2010 were killed by white people.

it also says that black offenders were less likely to be involved in sex-related killings (43.4%), workplace homicides,(25.8%) or homicides of elders age 65 or older (41.9%).

http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/htus8008.p...

does it not say that? can you read? now would be the time to prove it.

This image is screaming for a caption: Michael Dunn reacts to the verdicts from the jury

When Michael Dun, the killer of an unarmed black man, stood after the verdicts were announced by the jury foreperson, he raised his hands in disbelief. He then turned and looked at his parents with a sort of “HUH?” expression on his face.

This picture of Dunn is screaming for a caption:

I’ll start!“But Ma, I thought this was Florida!”

Your turn.

Of course they do.

Are you trying to say crime rate numbers aren't disproportionate when taking into consideration 65% of the population versus 12%?

Are you trying to say the vast majority of people in prison, regardless of skin color, are not guilty?

No your just another Teabagging Loser.
It must be fun to be able to sit back and bitch and point the finger without having one single solution to offer.(If you discount Taxbreaks for the Wealthy Swine whose feet you kiss... which most sensible Americans do.)
Your party is doomed because its synonymous with Bigotry and Ignorance and Hatred.
Your going to lose again in November and 2016.
How do you plan to ever get back in power after alienating every single growing voter demographic that you need to win on a National Level?
There arent enough Old White Mail Racists left to get you there.
So whats the plan?
Keep on losing and try to sabatoge anyone else who tries to fix the mess left by Republicans in 2008?
Keep HOPING for low employment numbers and economic hardship for your fellow Americans because without them you have nothing?
How does it feel to know you have a vested interest in America's failing?
Any good news seems to have Teabaggers pouncing doing their damndest to mitigate it and explain it away....hoping it isnt true.

Then you agree with me then. Smoking is just as legal as drinking.
Except that cigarettes are just one wave of Obama's pen and phone away from becoming illegal. Some cities are already trying to ban smoking cigarettes anywhere in that city.
While marijuana is becoming legal in more and more states. And potheads can smoke a joint anywhere they want to.
Please tell me you're getting this.
No nitwit, it would take congressional action to make tobacco products illegal. No liar, in Colorado the only state that has legalized the recreational use of marijuana, you can't smoke pot in public and have to follow the same rules as tobacco users. The thing that you don't or more likely refuse to realize is that when you smoke around other people, your smoke gets into their lungs too whether they want it or not.

Yeah."Smoke a joint anywhere they want to."
Why do Teabaggers have such difficulty seperating reality from their never-ending awfulization projection?
Is it disingenous or are they really that dumb?
Then they get offended at the notion that they have zero credibilty outside the Halt and Lame Rubes who make up Fox Nation.

Or does Galt, the defender of freedom and personal choice, just single out which personal choice he doesn't personally happen to like and then ignores all the rest like the P.C. police?
Do you give a pass to drunks and the morbidly obese? Or do you want to ban their personal choices too?
Can't have it both ways.
Once again Carol, if you want to smoke fine but the difference is that if the guy sitting next to me is snarfing down Whoppers or a couple of bags of glazed donuts, they're not getting into my body like your smoke does

He applauded that decision. But calls smoking marijuana a "bad habit". People used to say that about smoking cigarettes.
Congress is now pushing to ban e-cigarettes from the Capital. Which is vapor! It just looks like a cigarette.
Of course, they have to guzzle down their last drink at lunch before voting to ban vapor.
Can't you see the nonsense in all of this?

<quoted text>A study conducted by the Harris Organization for the Veterans Administration and released in 1980, an ABC-Washington Post poll released in 1985 and the National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study of the Research Triangle Institute agree that the majority of Vietnam veterans entered the military by enlistment. The readjustment study found that approximately 70 percent of Vietnam veterans enlisted, only 11 percent of whom reported they did so to "avoid the draft."
Vietnam veterans are still at war, with media figures who deny our patriotism and disparage our service by characterizing us as dummies too maladroit to have wrangled deferments. When questioned if they would serve again if asked, the majority of Vietnam veterans replied they would.
We Vietnam veterans are a group about whom a tremendous amount of nonsense has been said and written, and we must be on our guard against members of the media who need to validate their conduct during the war by casting discredit upon those who served. BERNARD A. HEENEY Bayonne, N.J., June 13, 1994

If you wanted to enlist to avoid the draft & Vietnam, you likely enlisted in the Navy & would not be included in those statistics.

We had to register for the draft by our 18th birthday. That's when you got your selective service number and lottery number. I turned 18 in April of '68 and enlisted before the end of the year.
My draft card has no lottery number because the lottery numbers had not been drawn,

The only possible explanation that would indicate you are telling the truth would be if your state had some sort of lottery or perhaps your local draft board.

So to clear this up, let us know where you were living in 1968.

Otherwise, your story to enlisting contained some BS.

That's it. They simply can't imagine someone walking in before being dragged in.
If you were volunteering, your draft lottery position would have been irrelevant. But you already said you enlisted because you had a low number indication you would not have enlisted if you thought you weren't going to be drafted.

Al Qaeda planned the attack six months before 9/11/2012.
Immediately after Al Qaeda planned the attack, Hillary Clinton began cutting Stevens' security.
After the attack, and after Hillary Clinton watched the videos that proved Obama was lying about some spontaneous demonstration caused by a video that nobody ever saw and didn't even exist when Al Qaeda planned the attack, Hillary Cliniton lied to Congress, lied to the entire country, and lied to Ty Woods' father, regurgitating the Obama lie about some video being the cause.
So, why isn't Hillary Clinton in prison for lying to Congress?
And the big question, how did Hillary Clinton know Al Qaeda needed Stevens' security to be eliminated?
Which brings us back to a question you have been running away from for over a year:
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
Really DB? Do you have even a smidgen of evidence that Al Qaeda planned this attack six months beforehand? No, you don't, you just pulled it out of your anal orifice like you do with everything you post.
You're an idiot DB; you always have been and always will be!
