    There’s really nothing to argue. It’s a fact that poverty is directly correlated with crime rate. Poor people, irregardless of race, commit a disproportionate amount. This is to be expected, I guess.

    People of color commit a disproportionate amount of violent crime, .. murder, armed robbery, assault, etc. ... per FBI statistics. This might explain a greater focus by law enforcement.

    I will agree with most of what you mentioned. However, if we look into the past (one can not see a future without a past) doesn't it stem back too a head start phenomenon such as 5 generations ago blacks were in captivity caused by their oppressors?
    Yes, a good majority will agrue that it's a basic excuses to use the past as a reason as to why most younger black youths today who are born in poverty type situations can't break the cycle for their off spring and generations of the future. But it's unlike the 'Tortoise & Hare' fairytale rather the Tortoise in captivity, shackled and physical abused before trying to catch up. A head start does make a difference especially when laws created by the same oppressors such as the 'Jim Crow ones' that ended less than 56 years ago. I think a lot more needs to be done than just putting Blacks in leaders positions of authority. When a mind is enslaved caused by systemic racism & systematic thinking. Its more difficult to break out of than those who's ancestors and selves were never a part of nor had to go through the same opposed nature.

    How does blocking streets, vandalizing vehicles, and getting violent with truck drivers who dare blow their horn or try slowly proceed help their cause? Why would any truck driver support the violent rioters over a truck driver trying to do his job. The anti-police wokes of our day are just like the “woke” of the 60’s who attacked, harassed, spit on and vilified U.S. soldiers and vets, most of whom just tried to follow orders and fo their job.

    Again you assume but they werent pedestrians they were intentionally blocking the road which is impeding traffic and no the truck didnt do anything until they started surround the truck still doesn't justify attacking the truck or driver nor blocking her path, they could have let her go, so no they escalated because they had a temper tantrum over someone daring to do their job and interrupt their little pow wow...

    I don’t think any person will disagree that blacks were treated horribly in the past .
    But that’s tough to use as an excuse 150 years later .

    if that’s the case, how do you explain the black and brown immigrants that show up with zero money , zero marketable skills and can’t speak the language, being able to succeed and stay out of trouble with the law?
    Many of them are illegal immigrants and can’t work a normal job, can’t get a drivers license etc, yet they manage to mostly stay off of the radar of the police.

    how is it that the immigrants show up with a wife and children and who can’t even speak English can succeed , and people who have lived here for generations can not?

    I think it all boils down to family.
    And the ethnicity doesn’t matter .

    if you have several children by several different fathers, none of whom you were married to and none of whom stick around to help raise the children. Then you are forever going to be living in poverty and statistically your children will be much more likely to not learn any marketable skills and statistically much more likely to be arrested.

    Statistically, children raised in a nuclear family with two parents in the household are much more likely to succeed using any measure you want to use.

    Yet BLMs mission statement says nuclear family’s are western policies that are racist ?
    Color me confused.
    BLM removes website language blasting 'nuclear family structure'

    How did sitting in at Woolworth's lunch counter change things?

    How did marching accross the Pettit Bridge (agaisnt government orders) chnage things?

    How did Haymarket change things?

    How did Tiananmen Square change things?

    A free society cannot exist when th only protest thats allowed is sanctioned by the powers that be.

    The truck was driving on the wrong side of the road. He drove into a crosswalk where people were standing - doesn't matter if they were intentionally blocking the road (which has not been established) - they were in the crosswalk with a green light, meaning they have the right of way.

    Even if they are blocking his path, it does not give him the right to use his truck tp batter his way thru. To claim otherwise is to endorse vigilantism.
