Where are you getting your stats from? You need a new source.

You must have failed your math classes. No way you could have passed logic either.

Which means you would not have been allowed to take statistics.

Guess you must resort to fabricating your "stats".

That would be...Blacks are arrested and convicted at a higher rate than Whites.
That is what's known as a Fact.

Actually you should check out the numerous studies that look into the connection between school suspension/expulsion, jv detention, and adult incarceration.

Criminal apologist scumbags, including the prosecuter, have not one witness to refute this:
" In his version of events, Zimmerman had turned around and was walking back to his SUV when Trayvon approached him from behind, the two exchanged words and then Trayvon punched him in the nose, sending him to the ground, and began beating him.
It’s important to remember that in order to claim self-defense under the Stand Your Ground law, Zimmerman had to reasonably believe lethal force was necessary to “prevent death or great bodily harm.”
A little fat man who forces his wife to commit perjury and is admonished by the judge for "sitting there like a potted plant" while she lied is not a paragon of virtue. His honesty is in question.

His integrity has always been in question from his druggie days in rehab to his beating her girlfriend up, his battery on police officers, getting fired for his inability to control his temper, etc.

If Trayvon, the victim of his hot temper and inability to control himself, had been white you would have entirely different opinions given the same set of known facts.

Actually, that is one of the places it starts, in school.

Blacks are suspended for something a white student would receive a detention for. Frequently their misdeeds are overlooked.

When it comes down to a he said, he said the white student's word will be accepted as truth and the black child will be punished.

The same thing goes for cops. They will hassle and arrest a black person for something they would ignore if done by a white person.

We all know about one of the most frequent things a black person gets pulled over for, DWB.

Prosecutors are far more likely to drop or not pursue charges against a white than a black.

Judges will sentence a black person to jail and give a white person no jail time. Prison sentences are harsher for blacks.

It is no accident that the men being exonerated for crimes after spending decades on death row are black. Just imagine the ones who don't get the death penalty, but decades or life in prison.

Suggested reading-CNN article--
Victim's son:'They ran him over because he was black'
Not only is the main subject of this article disturbing (the hit and run murder of 61 yr old Johnny Lee Butts), but the story about the white jeep & white guys versus 4 black kids walking, is even more disturbing. It also goes a long way to explain why 'blacks are arrested and convicted more than whites'. If the good sheriff will go so far as to threaten to come after CNN if they try to 'stir up trouble' in his county by digging into this case, what kind of chance do you think the average citizen has to finding answers and getting justice?

C'mon cooch, you're better than that.

I just know if you dig deeper down within, you'll find that you have the formula to figure me out, to figure others out.

BUT....you'll need a formula that rivals the Pythagorean Theorem. Right now, you're just giving us variations of the Cooch Theorem.

Before you dig, let me give you the definition of a real theorem, as opposed to your filthy equations.

THEOREM -- An idea accepted or proposed as a demonstrable truth often as a part of a general theory.
(Merriam-Webster)

So, since it deals with Truth, you'll need to excuse yourself.

I've got you all figured out, cooch. And I didn't need a squared + b squared = c squared to do so.

2shallow + 2predictable + 2ignorant = YOU!

Maybe it's the facts behind those crimes. White kids don't have the same circumstances that blacks do. Meaning white kids are not usually brought up in a gang type culture that blacks are.
Face it, the black culture is more criminally violent than the white culture is. What kind of people shoot each other for being on the wrong street? What kind of people spray paint their hoods with graffiti. Turn their parks into crime zones.
That's your own fault so don't expect to be treated any better by the majority of the population that holds itself to a higher standard.
Haa Haa don't want to be profiled by 75% of the population as criminal thugs, then change your image.
Oh wait, that's close to impossible when 50% of your children drop out of school and that many or more have a serious criminal record by the age of 25. And all the killings,ugh.
Whites in this country have for years have tried Everything to bring blacks to a equal status. It's not working and probably never will. Maybe that's why we allow illegals in this country like we do....better chance for success.
Fortunately your kind is slowing dying out or smartening up. However we still have far too many of your ilk to do everything they possibly can to keep blacks "in their place".

How can you write such tripe and then claim "Whites in this country have for years have tried Everything to bring blacks to a equal status."?

That's just as ludicrous as you claiming the poster is the cause of the ills of society and should be the cure.

How do you know his children aren't doctors, lawyers, accountants? You don't know anything except you are full of racism and hate.

Many whites like yourself do everything they can to ensure blacks don't have equal opportunities and everything they can to make sure blacks are given an uneven playing field.

Zazz, there was a great article from ABC News yesterday. I can't post a link with my phone, but it's the first thing listed if you google 'ACLU NAACP study juvenile detention'. The article suggests discipline in Mississippi is too harsh. It mentions kids being sent to juvenile detention for passing gas, dress code violations, profanity...one child was sent home in the back of a police car because dress code dictated shoes have to be black. His shoes were black with red and white designs blacked out, but not good enough.

When did this help start?

At Jamestown? During Reconstruction? During the Jim Crow Era?

During the times of 'Separate but Equal'? During the 'White Only' Era?

When southern governors deprived Black children of equal education?

Exactly when did this help start?

"Everything" was tried? You sure?

Almost forgot....welcome back. You guys are around to offer your take on the weekend's festivities?

They don't want to answer that salient question.

They know exactly what the answer is.
