I didn't see anyone post why there is a stop and frisk policy...

All shooting victims are documented in hospitals. So unless white people are getting shot and just not going to the doctor, this is not a racially biased study.


It starts with a mother and father in the home engaged in the lives of their children.

There will never be enough money for schools and counselors to take the place of involved parents.

I believe I read 70% of Chicago inner city school students live in a single parent home, usually the mother. 70%. Thats just unreal. I can't imagine going through highschool and what an idiot I was without a dad to set me straight.

look at Illinois...

So 74% of black kids in Illinois do not have 2 parent homes. Don't you find that disturbing?

Is there a past incident in Florida of Hispanics rioting?

I know there was a black riot in st Petersburg in the 96 following a questionable death of a black guy with police involvement.

I lived near there at the time. It was huge news for quite a while and is still remembered.



Does anyone here think that's a valid argument?

racism comes in when someone looks at the data sets listed above and blames them on a culture intrinsic to african-americans rather than on what sociologists refer to as a culture of poverty, which disproportionately affects african-americans

 

that's really all there is to be said

Agree. If one were to speak honestly he would need to acknowledge the same issues in the poor of other races as well.

Since the 1960s critics of culture of poverty explanations for the persistence of the underclasses have attempted to show that real world data do not fit Lewis' model (Goode and Eames, 1996). In 1974, anthropologist Carol Stack issued a critique of it, calling it "fatalistic" and noticing the way that believing in the idea of a culture of poverty does not describe the poor so much as it serves the interests of the rich. She writes, "The culture of poverty, as Hylan Lewis points out, has a fundamental political nature. The ideas matters most to political and scientific groups attempting to rationalize why some Americans have failed to make it in American society. It is, Lewis (1971) argues, 'an idea that people believe, want to believe, and perhaps need to believe.' They want to believe that raising the income of the poor would not change their life styles or values, but merely funnel greater sums of money into bottomless, self-destructing pits." [2]

 

Thus, she demonstrates the way that political interests to keep the wages of the poor low create a climate in which it is politically convenient to buy into the idea of culture of poverty (Stack 1974). In sociology and anthropology, the concept created a backlash, pushing scholars to look to structures rather than "blaming-the-victim" (Bourgois, 2001). Since the late '90s, the culture of poverty has witnessed a resurgence in the social sciences, although most scholars now reject the notion of a monolithic and unchanging culture of poverty and attribute destructive attitudes and behavior not to inherent moral character but to sustained racism and isolation (Small M.L., Harding D.J., Lamont M., 2010).

 

culture of poverty is victim blaming and the idea that differences in achievement across races can be attributed solely to the effects of economic inequality ignores the effects of racism

it's really a way of rationalizing the negative effects of capitalism through color-blind glasses
