How come whenever a black man gets killed everyone says its racist and its all over the news but whenever a white man gets killed no one cares?

It doesn't. There are tons of black people that die with no news coverage.

This is just a myth to push cases like these recent ones down because people don't want to see it.

Lots of black people get killed by other black people and the news doesn't cover it.

It's only when a white person kills a black person because then they can push an agenda.

Except the graphic is based on data from the crime victimization survey, not arrest statistics.


i sometimes feel like people just say "THATS RACIST" for fun without even thinking about why they even do it


File: 1428528523251.jpg (84.24 KB, 1024x574, Zoe-Trent-image-zoe-trent-3656…)

What this graph shows has actually little to do with race directly.

The reason why crime rates amongst black people seem higer is not because black people are more prone to crime. It's that crime is directly related to opportunity and success. If you are successful and have lots of opportunities, there is little chance you will resort to violent crime. Because you don't need to rob people of you have money.

What statistics like this show is that minorities actually have less opportunity to be successful in general, due to various circumstances, not always directly related to racist intent.

You always hear successful black people talk about how awful the non successful black people act.

But look at it from a white side. White trash act almost the same and successful whites treat them with the same distain.

It's not about good race or bad race. It's all about how successful an individual is as a person. It's just environmental factors, that may be related to racial issues, that cause the problem.

The Person Who Posts As Fluttershy (Element of Self-descriptive Usernames) 3239305

If that' the case the discrepancy should disappear when you remove economic factors.
But we still see a discrepancy when we only compare people people from similar economic background.

Backgrounds are only part of it. Upbringing and other factors are also a part of it.

The US is a white dominated society, but not because we are racist, but because of history.

The majority of rich and successful families in the early days of the country were white. So they're lineage obviously had an advantage. Better schools and living conditions, etc. Sure, by today's standards that has filtered down and is not nearly as prominent, but the effects still linger and are still promanent, and it will take a long while for the ripples to completely subside.

We have made a lot of progress but it's still not even close to over. In the end though, what race you are doesn't make you who you are. What shapes you is your environment and how you react to it.

Humans are in for a culture shock if aliens ever meet them, because most likely they will not understand the human idea of racism on the narrow scope humans do.

Imagine the scenario if an alien couple deciding to abduct some humans as pets. Imagine that conversation in the context of a human picking out pets at a store.

"Ooh! Honey get that one."
"Which one."
"The peach one with the yellow fur."
"Oh! Let's get a black one too!"
"How many of these are you gonna get?"
"Just a few. Oh! Look at that one, it's like a carmel color. We should get it too."

P sure the discrepancy is due to a culture that glorifies the behavior in question.


File: 1428530552619.jpg (45.21 KB, 570x420, sad_zoe_trent____by_monsterhig…)

It is. The young black culture is told that the white man is taking everything for himself, and a strong black man needs to step up and take it back from the greedy white folk, and the white people are spinning horror stories of the evil black men who will rob, rape and kill them.

The two sides perpetuate each other's strife unknowingly.

This is gold.

There's no righteous "Stop the evil white man, take back what's yours" mentality behind the majority of these crimes, it's just egoism, glorification of violence, and not giving a fuck.


File: 1428531216421.jpg (108.43 KB, 1024x578, Zoe-Trent-image-zoe-trent-3656…)

It is though. Most of these things are glorified because it's like, "Hey, look at me. I shoot cops and deal drugs and the white man tried to stop me but I beat him. Now I got all his chicks and money and cars. And if anyone tries to take it I'll shoot them too." etc.

It's about parading around illbegotten gains because it shows them "winning".

Sounds to me like they're doing their best to earn their reputation then. Hardly "both sides perpetuating" anything.


File: 1428531667349.jpg (84.24 KB, 1024x574, Zoe-Trent-image-zoe-trent-3656…)

They're doing it because they're told that's what they should be doing.

Rap music glorifies violence, riches and drugs because it shows defiance for the system. The white system. And this music is mostly targeted at black youth.

On the flip side, news and social media likes to tell stories of all the crime and violence black people commit because that is what the white population pays attention to.

In reality they are fighting each other for childish reasons. "He hit me!" "Well he stole my toy!" "That's 'cause you took my juice!" "Yeah, well you ate my cookie the day before." etc...

And it's just as toxic as teaching white people to feat black people or to make up stories that they are predisposed to violence or bad influence. It just drives a bigger wedge because you have white people scared of black people, causing them to treat black people worse, who then in turn retaliate against white people for the shitty treatment, which makes white people scared of black people, causing them to treat black people worse, who in turn retaliate against....

File: 1428535170278.jpg (72.59 KB, 1024x576, Zoe-Trent-image-zoe-trent-3656…)

The idea that you have a higher chance of being pulled over or shot by police if you're black is true.

Because white people are scared of black people. The "bending over backwards" is white people going, "Here! Take whatever you want, just don't hurt me."

And of course, this just makes black people look like the agressors, which as a species, humans deal with agressors in a very direct fashion: Cage it or kill it. Which is unfair to black people who do nothing wrong.

But this fear comes from young thugs causing problems in the streets. Which they do because their opportunities are limited. Big corperations in this country are mostly owned by white people. If a white person doesn't innately trust you, you have to work twice as hard as someone they do trust, that being another white person.

In other words, white people feel like they are being bullied by black people and black people feel like they are being treated like bullies.

It's self perpetuating because neither side wants to admit that it's partially their fault, which it is. It's either the black people for perpetuating violent culture or white people for being segregatingly racist. Neither wants to admit that they are part of the problem.


File: 1428535250544.jpg (45.21 KB, 570x420, sad_zoe_trent____by_monsterhig…)

So the black people bending over forwards refers to them being bent over a table and abused by white culture.

It's a space sim. You control a pilot of a ship and make your way in the galaxy, either as a fighter, merc, pirate, trader, etc...

It's kinda like EVE but less spreadsheet and more gameplay.

The interface is awesome becase the majority of the main menus in the game are accessed by looking around the cockpit in first person mode. It's completely seamless.

Like for example if I want to dock at a station, I would fly in close (all of this is done from a first person view) then look to my left and select a docking request. Then I would just turn my view forward again and look out the front viewport and fly my way in.

It's SUPER immersive.

Crazy cool shit happens too.

Like I had picked up some artifacts from a wreckage that dropped whr NPC pirates blew up an NPC cargo hauler and knew I could get a good price for them on the black market, so I nabbed them. They were technically illegal cargo though, so if the local authorities scanned my ship I knew I would get fined so I wanted to offload them as soon as possible.

I hit my jump drive and headed to the nearest port. In mid warp I got interdicted by an NPC pirate, who basically disrupted my jump signature and attempted to forcefully kick me out of warp. I almost broke free of the interdiction and escaped but he got me and we both dropped out of warp.

We fought for a while but he was winning until he suddenly said, "Oh shit, I gotta get out of here." and he took off.

I was confused until my ship was scanned. The NPC authorities had picked up the interdiction and came o investigate, and the pirate got scared and ran off. They scanned me and issued me a fine for the illicit cargo, which I then took to the port and sold, but I barely made a profit because of the fine.

And none of that was a scripted event. It's all dynamic.

It's pretty fantastic!

Garth Brooks made a song about the event and the ending was very powerful.

Here's the lyrics:
Oh, the snowflakes fell in silence
Over Belleau Wood that night
For a Christmas truce had been declared
By both sides of the fight
As we lay there in our trenches
The silence broke in two
By a German soldier singing
A song that we all knew

Though I did not know the language
The song was "Silent Night"

Then I heard my buddy whisper,
"All is calm and all is bright"
Then the fear and doubt surrounded me
'Cause I'd die if I was wrong
But I stood up in my trench
And I began to sing along

Then across the frozen battlefield
Another's voice joined in
Until one by one each man became
A singer of the hymn

Then I thought that I was dreaming
For right there in my sight
Stood the German soldier
'Neath the falling flakes of white
And he raised his hand and smiled at me
As if he seemed to say
Here's hoping we both live
To see us find a better way

Then the devil's clock struck midnight
And the skies lit up again
And the battlefield where heaven stood
Was blown to hell again

But for just one fleeting moment
The answer seemed so clear
Heaven's not beyond the clouds
It's just beyond the fear

No, heaven's not beyond the clouds
It's for us to find it here
