The accused hit her with his skateboard after she turned down his advances. And wouldn't you know it? His sick friends thought it was funny.

Civilized society can't look the other way because we don't like the race of a violent crime victim.

You want to be part of this Society 6persona?

Some days I wonder.
The point of my comment was: During the days long media frenzy over Floyd and then Brooks, 18 Black Americans were killed in S Chicago in one day. I saw no mention of it other than one news feed blip that i got on my phone. It was others in S Chicago that did the killing. Has Sharpton or Congressional leaders denounced this? Did any other media or BLM spokespersons mention it? This is the society that you think is civilized?
Yeah, they don't think it's worthy of discussion.
BLM my ass.

"Has Sharpton or Congressional leaders denounced this?"

They have.
Have any whites?
Or are you only here to denounce blacks who haven't denounced it?

"This is the society that you think is civilized?"

No, that is the society that I think is terrorized by police and gangs alike, living in rampant poverty, with scant opportunities for economic growth aside from the drug trade, and very limited chances at obtaining an education.

You know, the ghetto.

I guess you couldn't zoom out enough to see the part of the discussion where the police exist to perpetuate the ghetto, not lift anyone out of it.

Maybe this will help?

It's not the police's job to lift people out of the ghetto. That's the black community's job for it's individuals. I keep telling blacks that Democrats/liberals like you cannot help the black race overall, but I keep getting called Uncle Tom for it.

People like you Snoofy, while well meaning, are the problem.

What I find interesting in this discussion is the focus on this particular case.

I watch the NYC evening news each night. This type of crime is not an unfamiliar sight on the news.

Why not focus the discussion on the larger issue, why are there so many of these types of attacks being caught on video?

Should we turn off the video cameras? (Pres Trump's solution, i.e., testing for COVID-19 is bad)

Or should we leave the cameras on and resolve the root problem.

Hold on there ace.

"That's the black community's job"

Uh, no.

The job to lift people out of the ghetto is the job of the people in the ghetto, each individual person.

It is the job of society, i.e., our government, to assure that the path out of the ghetto is not hindered by systemic issues.

I think she needs a gun.

You were also in the military. Most people who frequent this site aren't familiar with that club.

Feel free to contradict me, but I never saw anyone attempt to smear a co-worker because of their race or sex. When you're dependent on the person sitting next to you to help keep you alive, and they on you, the sillier things don't matter as much. Or that's been my experience.

There is only one time in my career where I feel that minority status led to someone being treated differently, and that was when a lesbian was nominated to be a bomb wing commander. By all accounts, her service up to that point had been pretty average, yet she had been tagged for some very prestigious positions that would typically be very hard to come by, even for a shiny penny. She seemed to be a decent Wing Commander-people liked her-but she was later removed from command while serving as the Commandant of Cadets at the AF Academy.

What did Obama do to help people in the Ghetto? Far as I could see the poor remained poor.

Investing. The opposite of divesting and white flight.

"What did Obama do to help people in the Ghetto?"

He worked with cities to reform policing, which Trump undid. He expanded health care.

Black people tend to predominantly be democrats.

To put that another way. The Democratic Party is constructed by black people.

What you have yet to explain is. Why should black Americans join the Republican Party?

It's not white flight. Even that term has racist implications, as if a neighborhood is not good unless white people live there.

But it's not white flight. It's just flight. White people don't stay in the trailer park either, once they have the means to leave. Your statement suggests that they should stay in the trailer park, regardless of how well they do.

Regardless, "white flight" was the action of white people "fleeing" communities as they became more black or brown.

Oh wow. White people are so smart. Other races would probably use their means to buy drugs and rims.

Thanks, MadRacist.

You're really good at whitesplaining.

White flight was an action driven by increased affluence. In reality, it wasn't white flight, it was richer people flight.

And if we're being honest, the phenomenon has now reversed itself. Affluent people are now buying up properties in what were poorer neighborhoods.

And...this is where you start bitching about gentrification.

Edited for clarity and economic racism.

That's not a reversal.
That's buying additional homes in poor neighborhoods as investment properties.
Now, what does economics tell us about rent-seeking behavior?

MadBomber is so stupid he thinks an equally affluent black person and white person had the same real estate purchase opportunities in the 1950s.
