    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?

    Fine with me, but what your posts describe is NOT institutional racism. For those instances to be institutional racism, it would have to be the policy of those institutions.

    Are you serious?

    Perhaps you should consider how poverty multiplies crime, and then mix in some serious disproportion of poverty amongst the races.

    On a macro socioeconomic scale, there is very little to be done to really change. There have been small steps and they will continue.

    On an individual level those that transcend this issue are going to find themselves far more happy and successful than those who do not. It is another opportunity to be opened, even while poking others to stay where they are in the group defining universe of false expectations.

    There is no contrition for past atrocities in this country. We show no contrition for slavery, for treatment of native Americans, or for even the tens of thousands of non military civilians in Japan ending the war. No contrition for being the only nation to use nuclear weapons. Jews dont need to throw darts...Germany is sufficiently contrite as a modern country
    That does not ignore Hitler's atrocities.

    No one wants it ignored or forgotten.....when it's politicized then it's a problem.

    Why stop at those crimes? Perhaps you are able to provide the relevant percentages for:

    (i) insider trading;
    (ii) corporate fraud?

    Also, are you able to provide the value of property stolen in robberies compared to the totals for corporate fraud?

    Doesn't matter. They have written policies saying the opposite. And then there's the law. The article even admits it talking about juries.

    No. I don't have any of that. I live outside a nice little town where we don't steal from each other.
