Genocide (CPPCG). Article 2 of this convention defines genocide as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group
,.emphasis on (prevent births within the group)
The mass incarceration of Blacks, while again Whites are free to commit 77% of the crime and be convicted far less,,..but the mass incarceration of Blacks reduces Blacks overall birth rates..
But an education will never befall you...
,.PS.."they put themselves there!" <--retarded..lol
Meanwhile; again White criminals commit about 77% of the crimes in America EACH YEAR!!- where are they putting them! because it is certainly not jails and prisons!
What part of they were found guilty by their own peers and were incarcerated escapes you.

Now apply that 77percent to the total number/the White population of the given area. Then do the same for the Black population.

Compare the two and voila! You have per capita.

The number of people who commit crimes is only part of it. It is per capita that gives an accurate number for comparison and so as to come to a conclusion. That being why people such as yourself are no qualified to interpret the numbers because you only are using part of the whole.

In hand are 20 oranges and 10 apples.

15 of the oranges spoil And 10 of the apples spoil.

Thus, 15 out of 20 oranges have spoiled while all of the apples have spoiled.

Concluding that only 15 of the oranges spoil and yet, all of the apples have spoiled despite there being a higher number of oranges and due to there being more oranges than apples.

Which reflects a higher rate of spoiling per capita? The apples.

Someone said they are paying people $1500 a week to do clean up of the BP oil spill. My friend's son was thinking about traveling from Mass to Louisiana to do this.

And how much does it take to fund a person that is incarcerated?

There are people who are traveling there to help w/the clean up, many being volunteers. Yet, according to Tim John, those who are incarcerated, being put to good use is deemed as slavery.

Perhaps, we should pay those prisoners and then they can pay it back to the tax payers who are footing to bill to house and feed them. I'm sure their "tab" well exceeds what those people are being paid on a weekly basis. Then, again, "genocide" is a costly endeavor.

Lest we forget, those who are being impacted by the oil spill, having their fututre/lives negatively impacted, don't have the someone footing the bill to house and feed them. However, those who pay taxes/their hard earned money is going towards housing and feeding those who are incarcerated as a result of they having committed crimes/not being a productive citizens/contributing to society. And those tax payers are struggling to make ends meet, wondering what the future holds for them and their loved one.

I think my last post was too confusing for timmy as you had to convert per capita and percentages.
I have tried to make it more elementary for timmy as i know he is "challenged".

Remember, the FBI says that Whites or those counted as White commit about 77% of the crimes in America each year - now using the supporting tables.."
but somehow, in the state of Louisiana, of the 39,000 inmates 70% are Black!"

His is off his meds and his numbers.
I think he just makes this up for fun.
Lets just focus on the facts and forget the trash.
Louisiana total population..4,492,000
Black..32%= 1,437,440/100k = 14.37 blacks per 100k
White..65%= 2,919,800/100k = 29.18 whites per 100k
http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/22000...
Table #43 total crime. per capita blacks commit 4.4 times the crime as whites.
http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2008/data/table_43...
Louisiana total violent crime..28,994
http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2008/data/table_05...
28,994/4.4 = 6,590
Whites committed 6,590 violent crimes. 23%
Blacks committed 22,404 violent crimes.77%
Blacks commit violent crime 3.4 times that of whites.
Louisiana prison pop.
51,790 total.
Blacks, in prison at 2,542 per 100k of state pop.
Whites, in prison at 523 per 100k of state pop. http://sentencingproject.org/doc/publications...
Black, 2,542 x 14.37= 36,528 in prison.
White, 523 x 29.18= 15,261 in prison.
Total Louisiana prison pop. black+white= 51,790
Blacks 58% of the prison pop.
White, 29% of the prison pop.
Other, 13%
Blacks commit 77% of the violent crime in Louisiana
Blacks make up 58% of the prison pop.
Whites commit 23% of the violent crime in Louisiana
Whites make up 29% of the prison pop.
It is the Whites who are getting shafted here but what else would you expect from a state with the 2nd highest pop. of blacks.
And per Tim John, a civil war is a positive solution. I guess Blacks dying is preferred to the prison population working and paying their debt to society. I guess it escaped him that any civil unrest will be contained swiftly and surely. Noooo... certainly that population of those incarcerated wouln't increase substantially. Heck, let's just start a civil war because some inmates in LA are helping w/the efforts to clean up the oil spill. Most people would find it commendable to help w/the endeavor but to Tim John... that's "genocide" and slavery. Because afterall, the prison population has bigger fish to fry and as evidenced by their hectic daily agendas.

Yeah, I would like to see his liberal, leftist, black, ass working like these prisoners,(mainly Negroes) in the hot sun!

Why he'd be making friends in no time with those who have been put out of work.

Perhaps, he can have a one to one discussion w/the nine thousand some people that Obama put out of work just days after the oil spill occurred. Or even the those "shrimpers", I believe their called, who have no idea what their future holds for them and their families having been in the industry for generations.

Maybe he can take his discussion to those who have suffered from tourism being impacted during what is normally peak season.

Yep. How dare those inmates be forced into slavery. Perhaps, Tim John can take up a collection for them.

Tim John: Keeping "the Dream" alive! LMFAO! That guy is a perfect example of what is wrong with inner-city schools! When they were handing out brains at the airport that poor sap was waiting for a bus downtown. A very short bus at that.
