“Occasionally” I don’t practice suitable caution, and perhaps, I even throw it wildly to the wind. I’m a measured kinda guy but there are times I lose myself.
This blogosector I find myself in is soothing and familiar and most of my opinions and views are relatively blurred within the general monochromatic ideologies, meaning that I have become very acclimated at spouting off stuff which in “normal, civil” society would be scoffed at and rebuffed with enmity and ridicule. I can’t help it. Sometimes I find a comment board in mainstream discussions that draw me in and boy, do I get swatted down every time!
In fact, here in Los Angeles, a story appeared in our local news recently that involved the rape of a young girl, and the suspect was unsurprisingly a man “of color.” After reading the copy, I dove into the comment section. The first one was an inflammatory bit of ire that essentially accused Black men of innate criminality. The next comment rose self-righteously in typical leftist reactive condemnation of the first commenter for being “sick” and a “racist” in addition to the usual toolset of shaming terms the modern liberal apologist slings at anyone who points out cold racial data. I jumped in, using my Socially Extinct moniker and blog link in order to come to the “defense” of first (rather politically incorrect) commenter. I argued that apparently the Left thought it more important to defend the honor of the Black suspect rather than the well-being of the rape victim. I observed that the suspect was “predictably” Black. I said this is something I knew instinctively while reading the story before it even informed of the suspect’s background.
I received a scathing wall of condemnations in response. I was called every name and received some thinly veiled threats. Worse, my arguments were refuted with oodles of pure stupidity in the way of ignorance and incomprehensibility.
Those who would defend, or at least try to mitigate, the disproportionate representation of Blacks and Hispanics on the “violent criminal” side of the ledger are best advised to defer to facts and the ruthless diligence of statistics before vomiting moronic arguments. There is a diffuse degeneration of cognitive clarity in their rambling, as well. They deviate from the linear row of logic and erect their own nonsensical and rootless narrative as a means of warming the pot for the ensuing barbs of verbal aggression and dramatics that drown out reason and intelligent discourse. This shit does nothing to help their argument other than eliciting bellows of concurrence from equally imbecilic “agree-ers.”
This is typical:
The “12% of the population not being able to cause all the crime” argument is tired. The anti-racist moron brigade is confounding the argument and the numbers. They seem incapable of comprehending the concepts of “percentage” and “ratio” and instead focus on the one value their little minds are capable of comprehending: stupid integers!
“Non-blacks committed xx crimes last year
Blacks committed x crimes last year
How can we say Blacks cause all the crime!?”
Oh, and they constantly assert the stupid notion that Blacks are convicted of more crimes as well. C’mon, even accounting for systemic and institutional prejudicial shortcomings, the disparity of Black vs. White convictions is not enough to offset the resounding preponderance of Black crime in relation to the Black population’s ratio as contrasted with the entire American population. Perhaps this is a difficult concept for some minds to comprehend, but why must they all have no understanding of the sociological statistics?
Perhaps the general concept can be amplified in a manner most of these people would understand:
Let’s say you and Joe both receive your EBT deposit on the same day. You both get a $200 bump but it turns out Joe’s old lady, Martha, and her 4-year-old son, Josh, moved into his pad yesterday. Your $200 is more valuable than Joe’s because you live alone and have no ready-made family. Each of your dollars means more. Joe’s dollars mean less because he will be taking care of more people. Think of it this way: EBT dollars are like the violent crime you commit. The more you commit, the less value they have for you. If you commit very few violent crimes, they are more valuable. Now the next mental step is really tricky: instead of inferring one person when I say “you,” imagine I’m talking about everyone that is your race.”
