So all black are poor? shall we consider that they have no initiative or work ethic? not capable of earning a decent living? sounds like the thinking back in the 40's.
It's a poor excuse. Why are they high crime areas? Because of the population. Or are you blaming inert objects for the crime rate?
Yet another post taken down by the resident Herr Goebbels of the Blaze. They hate any post which is informative or thought provoking. That is provoking thought in a manner "they" find incongruous to their pattern of thinking.
I do understand that the Blaze is exactly like MSNBC or CNN or any other infortainment outlet. The problem I have is the Blaze purports itself as something completely different and therefore something it definitely is NOT. That would be serious unbiased news.
I mean, you know what you are getting with MSNBC or CNN. They say it up front.
The truth lives here. That's a laugh.
OK. I vented about the duplicitous nature of the Blaze. I don't know why I bother. Everyone that wants to know knows the very same thing.
That being said, correlation is always a factor in causation. Any sane person with a relatively moderate IQ knows this to be true. It just depends on the variance of extent.
This very same line is commonly used by stingy regressives DBA liberal progressives to dismiss facts concerning blacks in particular, but any favored group really. These people are never interested in truth. They are interested in the narrative that promotes the ideology. Facts are irrelevant. Statistics, math and data are likewise irrelevant.
There is NO definitively unbiased study concerning the relationship between poverty and crime. The facts are high crime areas tend to be populated by mostly black or Hispanic residents. That is a certitude, a fact.
When the population changes as it has in reclaimed urban areas in many cities across the US, the crime rates go down. That is a fact. Statistically, blacks have ALWAYS been closely tied to urban blight. THAT IS A FACT.
Take down this post if you wish. The facts will NOT change. Willful ignorance is dangerous.

I don’t get your point. Are you saying if the police had savagely beat the protestors in Ferguson like the Selma police did this wouldn’t have happened?

You ever heard that phrase, “You’re not wrong, you’re just an @##hole?” Yeah, that’s kind of what doing open carry in front of a school zone is. Just because you CAN do a thing doesn’t mean you SHOULD do that thing.
I thought the law wasn’t passed until after she left? That’s why Kerry uses public email. But Colin Powell for example never did.

I missed the part where she broke the law. Can you point that out to me?

Until the jackbooted thugs come for you. Then it’s different, right?

Simple, it prevents them getting sued for slander/libel. It’s a CYA move. I have no issue with it since I know why they do it.

I asked this same question to my mother who worked for the city of Ferguson for 20 years. She said the basic answer is that although a majority of the population is black, most homeowners are white. Most of the black population is transient. Not homeless, but tend to live in apartments and don’t stay in the city very long. So most of the people with a vested interest in voting because they’ll stay long term control the politics.

I don’t think free speech covers making death threats?

It’s got to suck to be John some days. The left hates him, the right hates him…I guess that means he’s doing his job, but no wonder he’s a drunk lol.

If you want a liberal viewpoint, I’d say you’re correct. I’m pretty sick of the same people being up there since I was in high school. Problem is, who else is there on the left? I like Elizabeth Warren, but no real progressive has a shot at the white house. Same deal with Bernie Sanders. Nobody else is ready because of Hillery. So I’m stuck with a neo-liberal, or whoever the GOP runs. Nobody on that side excites me too much although the social libertarian in me is intrigued with Rand Paul.
