it was mentioned and straw manned to death

 

i actually went through the trouble of posting studies which controlled for the type of offense, so that a "wellll maybe black ppl just commit more crimes!" defense couldn't be used and yet, i just got a bunch of "well are they committing crimes or not?!?! are the gestapo dragging black ppl out of their homes?!?!?!"

 

Do you find it interesting that the current marriage rate is lower than the 70 or so years after slavery ended? It seems to have taken a nose dive in the 1960s.

 

Any thoughts as to why?

+ the gradual erosion of the social safety net

 

+ the generational effects of discrimination in the workplace

the best part about this is that you demand others jump through hoops, yet continue to refuse to establish whatever causation you see that isn't covered by the literature. i've given you the librul book lernin take; would you like to answer your own question now?

who cares if they're being targeted and sent to jail at rates much higher than white ppl? who cares about the generational effects that incarceration can and does have on entire families? are they committing the crimes or not???????

Who cares if they are committing crimes? Apparently you don't.

If you aren't committing crimes, you don't need to worry about being targeted by anyone.

That is the plain and simple truth that you refuse to see.

Blame the judge....not the person committing the crime.

Blame the gun....not the person eho shot done one.

Blame the education system...not the person who does not try, dies not go to school, does not study.

Blame everyone but the individual...it makes you feel better.

Your main point is that racism, economic hardships, and lingering effects of slavery are why there is such a high rate of single parents in the black community.

 

But, if you look at census history, there was a long time period immediately after slavery ended that marriage rates were higher than today and out of wedlock children were less common.

 

Was there less racism in the early 20th century than today? Were minorities better off from 1890-1960?

 

I am asking an honest question, how do you consolidate these facts with your views?

no, though that appears to be how you've interpreted it. sounds like a "you" problem

so racist cops and racist judges don't put a parent in jail? They just force the parents to split?

you act as if the effects are not compounded from generation to generation, which is simply untrue

the effects are felt through generations, and act as stressors on the family. a parent doesn't have to be sent to jail to experience stress that is directly related to the institutionally racist system (though it obviously doesn't help the fact that black fathers aren't present in many households when they are consistently sent to prison at much higher rates than the privileged class)

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
