And it is ironic over at Times Ledger two articles I made comments about (http://www.timesledger.com/stories/2017/19/web-113robbery_2017_05_12_q01.html?comm=1#feedback) & http://www.timesledger.com/stories/2017/19/cuffings_2017_05_12_q.html?comm=1#feedback), someone made a comment about one of my comments about the high crime involving Blacks and Hispanics and the response was:
Wow….. Talk about ignorant racists….I expectED more from you. This engagement in idiotic racial profiling that you’ve displayed just lost you a lot of my respect. Yes, they’re criminals. No one denies that. But whites, asians, latinos also commit crimes. Not only “ghetto thugs.” I respect your fight for civic improvement but you’ve gotta work on your tactics.And actually, crime is spread pretty evenly across races. It’s public perception that distorts things.
But see I never claim that ghetto thugs are of one race, ghetto thugs are just that, ghetto thugs who terrorize communities and the reason why so many communities (especially of color) are not safe and so much nonsense exists in said communities. And NO, crime is not committed equally among races. I suggest anyone read the NYPD report: http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/downloads/pdf/analysis_and_planning/year-end-2016-enforcement-report.pdf
But then I don’t need to read the report, just look at the areas with high rates of crime in the city, SE Queesn (South Jamaica, Jamaica, Ozone Park), Brooklyn (Brownsville, East New York, Rockaway Beach) and many parts of the Bronx.
I am not being “racist” nor am I generalizing, I am dealing in statistics and facts. And since i have been all over NYC and the different boroughs, it is not like I have my head in the clouds. Reality is just that reality and statistics are just that statistics. But for those who chose not to indulge in reality and facts, I guess Trump is the best president we ever had.
Just own your shit folks. Kind of hard to solve a problem, when you don’t admit there is a problem to begin with.
