"Yea, well you were not kept as slaves, killed for learning to read, beaten with inch and a quarter thick poles (often to death)." Neither were any living black people, or their parents. Where does the buck finally stop? Is the free ride supposed to go on forever? What about all of the new black immigrants? Why do they get the same treatment in spite of having none of the history?

Then why are there so many hispanic and black families in a developed country like America who keep having children beyond their means because our "first world society" will pick up the check for them? Maybe it's not just about the countries they come from, but the people themselves?

For values of "elsewhere" that start and end with "anywhere other than Twitter, like the pits of Hell."

If you have something to say that can be said in 140 characters, you have nothing to say.

I beg to differ: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

Well, i cant speak for statistics in Europe, but I can say without a doubt that violent crime in america is much more heavily influenced by race than by poverty. As you can see here: for example, 27% of people living below the poverty line are black, compared to 10% being white. This means that blacks are 270% more likely to live in poverty than whites. Following so far?

Now, according to DOJ statistics: blacks are responsible for more about 52% of all murders in the united states, with whites (including hispanics) accounting for 45%.

Now as i am sure you are aware, blacks are a minority in America, accounting for only 12% of the population, and yet they are responsible for over half of the murders. What this means, is that a black person is nearly 8 times more likely to commit murder than any other person of any other race in America.

Now, if you take the rate of murderers that are black and subtract from it the rate of blacks living in poverty, (800%-270%=530%) even if you supposed (wrongly) that every single black living in poverty is a murderer, then you are still left with the remaining blacks who dont live in poverty committing over 500% more murders than every other race in America combined.

Poverty is not the leading factor in violent crime, race is. The poverty myth is nothing short of delusional or perhaps deceitful propaganda.

Don't hit the keys so hard, it hurts.
