Like when I went to Vegas and was one of only three white people in my group, like I was frightened. Or Like when I went to a Birthday party recently and WAS THE ONLY WHIE PERSON. Or when I go to work and there is only one other white person. Heck I go to sleep in a house where I am the only white person and this may sound strange to you but I dont stay awake worried that I am surrounded by non white people. In fact I find some of the non white people sweet and cute, like the little Nurse I live with.
Lmao!!!!!

In a modern Capitilistic society a company wants to hire the best people it can no matter what their race is and whas business is going to turn away a customer with cash to pay for their service.
If a business was run by a racist bigot who only hired white people and not the best people and only served white people , a Competitor which hired the best people regardless of their race and took money from anyone with cash would soon put the Bigot out of Business.
Go look at the IT companies , they travel the world hiring from Eastern Europe , India , China and wherever they can to get the best people Race , religion and ethnic group a big who cares, cause they know if hey dont a rival will.
Don't confuse them with rational thought, common sense, and facts. You're just gonna piss them off. Lol.

Notice the last sentence by Spocko which referred to a conservative. Kinda seems like a little projection now doesn't it?
Speaking of projection, all of your Republiklan candidates are good at speaking about the faults of the Obama Administration but none of those shallow minded racists have solutions.

If a Hitler came to power with a "D" next to his name and was a progressive, these idiots would call those who were wary of him haters. Their movements were successful but they can't figure out why their utopia is not in full bloom. So they have to blame someone even while taking their hard earned wages through oppressive taxation.

I just don't understand how any people regardless of color will respect this polling company from this point on. This is sick. It is a hate producing act by a corporation. What is the purpose of this so call survey in the first place? It is statically impossible for 11% of any population to be the most of anything.

Teabaggers would vote for Hitler or Mussolini without question.

The way they adore and defend Reagan and his failed policies even to this day, even though his concept has brought the U.S. and the world to the brink of economic disaster.

Look at who they nominated?

Any candidate that could fog a mirror and each one was the next best thing since sliced bread.

CEO's disserve everything they earn no matter what the methods used to attain such status.

Workers are to be exploited, used as pawns, lazy and should be paid as such.

Hate taxes and will use every law, scheme, evasion technique to avoid them or use them to get richer.

They strive to create a corporate fascist state where government is controlled by corporations.

Then when the cost outweighs the rewards for them, they complain to the government for help and then whine when the government they despise are slow to act.

Poor teabagger.

In a perfect world I would agree with you. Unfortunately our own history proves that seldom works out, especially when the bigots are in the majority and can make laws which can discriminate against a minority- whether that's race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc.
It wasn't your idealistic free market system which overturned the discriminatory laws in our own country- it took the courts to do that.
When Jim Crow laws where on the books in the South, the South ws poor backwards and losing populationand most major companies avoid the South. The South economy has grown since the end of Jim CRowand now has a growing population.. Do you think tech companies in Texas and North Carolina are going to want to see Jim crow laws come back and their Engineers from India and China leave?
Since both you and Prep work in the Medical/Nursing field, you should know many Hospital rely on Nurse from Asia.. Do you think rural Hospitals in the South are going to want to see those Nurses go home.
Come to think ofit since a lot f those Nurses are cute, do you think the local Red neck boys are going to want to see them put off limits?

In the article the Zimmerman case is mentioned. It talks about a white guy and a young African American kid as helping to add to the racism. However, this is not true. It was a Hispanic and and a young African American kid. Can someone tell me why this is a "black and white" issue when there is no "white guy" involved?
Just proof that no matter what they always feel "it's the white guys fault". Even if it's a Hispanic!

Now if that doesn't prove who is more racist towards who I don't know what does!!!

So what's a "livable rate"?
I want to own a island, a yacht, a dozen cars, etc. Can I force an employer pay me $1 million per hour because that's what I take to live on?
Although your comparison is ludicrous, the average Walmart worker earns $10 per hour. Say they work 40 hours per week. That's $400 per week, minus $70 in SS contribution and taxes. They are taking home $330 per wk multiplied by four weeks in a month (approx)so about $1320 per month. That means they earn $15,840 per year which is almost low enough to be at the poverty level.

As long as their car doesn't break down, ever, or they don't get sick and rack up huge hospital bills, that is probably a livable wage for a single person who lives a very humble existence, but I could not survive on that. I have a kid in college. We own two businesses, a mortgage and the insurance and workman's comp we pay out every year is well above $15,840.

Again, corporate America is making record profits and has been since the crash in 08. They are making record profits because they are paying out record low wages and the trickle down is quite obvious since we have the highest poverty rates in America since the Great Depression.

Thanks corporate America. Just remember, our demise will eventually be yours, too. Karma's a bitch that way.

Deflection all you've got?
Re-read the post you are replying to. It already explains your error in reasoning.
A statistic stating blacks commit most gun violence, in no way states all Blacks commit gun violence.
It's like the statistic that the majority of serial killers abused animals early in life. That does not mean that all that abuse animals early in life will become a serial killer.
You are looking at it from the wrong direction.
Ah, but a history of animal abuse DOES indicate a lack of respect for life, which would also be needed to be a serial killer. There is a causational relationship involved.

No such relationship exists simply by being black.

In other words, being black in no way causes people to commit gun violence.

Now being poor DOES have a causational relationship with committing crimes, because being poor can lead people to crime to get what they can't otherwise get, or being a criminal can directly lead to you being poor.

So since being black doesn't cause you to commit crimes or have a low IQ, then there is no reason to break down the numbers by race, unless you're attempting to infer something about the entire race.
