    Default New York City crime stats....Why is this? Well.....

    Read an interesting crime stat from New York City. Just wondering why, and what the solutions may be?

    With regard to race, which is often discussed by the media by the way...( and politicians as well..)
    ...Blacks make up 23% of the population, but account for 75% of shootings and 70% of robberies.
    ...Whites make up 34% of the population but account for just 2% of shootings and 4% of robberies.

    ...So the question is why does such a small percent of the population, blacks, commit such a high percentage of robberies and shootings?
    ...What are the underlying causes of this?
    ...What may be the solutions to those causes?

    This is likely doesn't just pertain to New York, but likely other cities such as Chicago, Memphis, Birmingham. Baltimore, D.C. etc...
    ....Will the media touch this issue or politicize it, or cover it up? Just think if shootings and robberies were at 2 and 4% for ALL races...What would cities look like then?

    Again, what are some real steps that could put a dent in this problem?

    I'm black under 40 married, college educated and have children with my wife. Lots of our peers are the same and guess what almost all of them are 2nd or 3rd generation college graduates who's parents/ grandparents were able to take advantage of programs specifically geared to blacks in the 70s and 80s. The end result is a generation of college educated children and grandchildren that contribute to society function as great role models and improve their communities.
    But can't find the DMV to get a voter ID.

    goes for white people too.

    white people are less inclined to pull the trigger in NYC than Chicago.

    And good on you for doing well, and working hard to get there. There is nothing wrong with that.

    But you did have some advantages being white. On the other hand, you had some disadvantages for being a woman.
    No it doesn't. What do you think institutional means?

    Does Michelle Alexander know at whose request the war on drugs was started?

    The thread is about crime as much as race. Why is it anytime someone tries to discuss this problem the default liberal position is "Racist!"

    Are you denying the black population commits crimes out of proportion to the population?

    And screaming "Poverty!" over and over is useless. We've had progressive income tax since 1862. Welfare programs since the Depression. You aren't making any progress, your perpetuating.

    You cannot "make" a poor person middle class. He has to bring care to the table.

    Don't assume everyone wants an education and a good 9-5. Some people are just bandits.
