It is possible that the reason Obama won't produce his real birth certificate is that under father it is listed as John Doe. I doubt very seriously that any one can be convinced that the gestation period for a 18 year old female in 1961 was 5 months.
It depends on which hole the gestation took place in.

If poor people are more likely to commit certain crimes & Blacks are disproportionately poor, then blacks having disproportional crime statistics is not because they are black, its because they are poor.
the same true with education levels & living in impoverished areas in the cities.
But hey, that requires real thought & that is obviously well beyond the ability of the right whiner ignorant racists that post here daily.

Then part of the data should include the root cause people are poor I would suggest if we had more people who had jobs and earning a wage to pay their way through life they would have less time and less inclination toward acts of crime and violence. You see crime and unemployment which increases poverty coinciding in conjunction with one another over and over again.

RAF Tornado jets are to be sent for possible use in the aid operation in northern Iraq, where many thousands of people are fleeing Islamist fighters.

The Ministry of Defence said the planes would leave RAF Marham in Norfolk within the next 48 hours.

The bombers will not have a combat role, but could carry out surveillance to assist delivery of aid supplies.

Here, the prime minister is resisting pressure to recall Parliament to debate a military role in the Iraq crisis.

David Cameron's spokeswoman said a recall was "not on the cards", while Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond ruled out a combat role for the UK amid growing calls for military involvement.

US arms Iraqi Kurds as France makes appeal to EU to mobilise
REUTERS/Ari Jalal
By RFI
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has called on the European Union to respond to calls for arms from Iraq’s beleagured Kurds as they start to make gains against Islamic State fighters who have overrun large swaths of northern and western Iraq.

“It is crucial that the European Union mobilises from today to respond to this appeal for help,” said Fabius in a letter to EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton.

His appeal comes as the US has begun directly providing weapons to Kurdish forces, according to a State Department spokeswoman on Monday.

"We're working with the government of Iraq to increasingly and very quickly get urgently needed arms to the Kurds," Marie Harf told CNN. "This includes the Iraqis providing their own weapons from their own stocks, and we're working to do the same thing from our stocks of weapons that we have."

Fabius’s endorsement of the Kurd’s calls for arms comes a day after he returned from Iraq where he met with Iraqi Kurdish president Massud Barzani and oversaw part of France's humanitarian effort.

Kurdish government officials have meanwhile said they do not want to see foreign troops on the ground, but that weapons support would help them defeat militants.

Three days into US air strikes, Kurdish Peshmerga forces have started to win back areas seized by the radical Sunni group including IS positions in Makhmur District, a region north of Kirkuk, and the town of Gwair.

“I would be very grateful if you could urgently mobilise the member states and the European institutions to respond,” Fabius wrote on the premise that arms and ammunition could help them “confront and beat the terrorist group Islamic State.”

France, along with Britain, has also joined US humanitarian efforts to deliver aid to the Yazidi religious minority sect who were threatened with genocide.

European envoys are also set to meet on Tuesday in Brussels for an emergency meeting on the deepening crisis in Iraq.

A source told AFP that the meeting, officially called by Italy, will most likely not result in any decision on Fabius’s call for action from the 28-member bloc.

Dumbassed Dave doesn't want to admit that his beloved democrat party has made sure black folks have been kept poor, uneducated and dependent on government handouts.

We see how democrats treat any black that dares step off the plantation to support conservatism.

China Thwarts U.S. Bid to Ease Tensions in South China Sea
China’s rejection of U.S. and Philippine proposals to regulate countries’ behavior in the South China Sea signaled tensions are likely to persist in one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.
At a regional security meeting this weekend, China rebuffed a U.S. proposal for nations involved in disputes to voluntarily avoid actions that could be provocative. The proposal, and a similar measure by the Philippines at the Asean Regional Forum in Myanmar, were aimed at breathing life into stalled talks on drafting a code of conduct.

Mount Sinjar stinks of death. The few Yazidis who have managed to escape its clutches can tell you why.
‘Dogs were eating the bodies of the dead,’ said Haji Khedev Haydev, 65, who ran through the lines of Islamic State jihadists surrounding it.
General Ahmed Ithwany, who led the mission, told me:‘It is death mountain. Up to 70 per cent of them are dead.’

Barry pitched in by bombing them with food and water. I think a water bottle dropped from 15,000 ft. might hurt.
