Autism and schizophrenia doesn't care if your parents loved you or not before afflicting someone.

You know how to recognize when you are losing an argument? Its when a person is speaking in macro, things on a larger view of society, and you bring up specific instances as if they somehow invalidate the bigger picture.

Yes, there are bad eggs from good homes. Yes, there are good eggs from bad homes.

But looking at the problem as a whole, its clear that there is a correlation in the probabilities of bad eggs coming from broken homes...of ALL races.

Or maybe white males are just prone to hurting and committing violent acts against children. There are plenty of people with autism and schizophrenia who dont open fire on elementary school kids.

But his father was very much a part of his life, even ID'd his body after the massacre.

You are so defensive.

No one is saying being black makes you more likely to be a criminal.

What we are saying is that coming from a broken home will make it more likely. That is crystal clear. Will it happen every time? No. But in general it increases the odds.

The answer to this problem is strong two parent homes. A mom and a dad raising their children. This applies across the board, every color.

I have found that a lot of racism is sponsored by our government, to their own advantage.

For instance... the Republican/Tea party disdain for the 'projects' and 'welfare'. They are brainwashed into believing that it is an ethnic problem, even though it is blatantly false, and welfare supports an equal amount of whites.



What they dont understand is that while the government has the people busy blaming each other for our problems... the REAL problem is going on right beneath our noses... the expenditure of trillions of dollars a year to the military industrial complex (53% of all of our tax dollars) and then another huge percentage goes to corporate welfare (bank bailouts, tax incentives for oil companies...etc.)


As long as we are busy fighting ourselves with this Left-Right paradigm they have improsoned us in, we have no power to unite and fix the real underlying problems of our society.

I agree with this. The finger pointing across the aisles is funny. All fingers need to be pointed at Washington DC as a whole.

Not a he said this, or he did this, it's a bigger problem than an R and D issue.

They are playing us like cards.
