I'm reaching out to those of you here who are not legitimate racists but are tired of the senselessness of BLM.
Now, we all know the basic crime stats: African Americans are 13% of the population, yet commit 33% of all crime, including half of all murder and one-third of all rape.
My problem is, whenever I bring up these stats and say that the difference is caused by level of income/education, I of course get ignored and painted as a racist spewing "racist facts." BLM responds that "Well, that's because African Americans are more likely to be profiled and targeted by police in the first place".
That's a great point when it comes to drug crimes, where there is much legitimate racial profiling. However, that same logic also claims that the disparity for the murder is due to profiling. 13% of the population is black, committing 50% of all murder, meaning that 37% difference is all profiling. This would mean that almost 2/3rd of African Americans convicted of murder are innocent and were victims of framing/profiling, which is obviously ridiculous.
The thing is, profiling does still exist, the problem is that it's extent is greatly exaggerated. I've tried to explain that if I waved a magic wand and made all racism disappear eternally, we'd still be left with the majority of the problem. The reason for this is because the crime rates/income disparities are not SYMPTOMS of the problem, they are the primary CAUSE of the problem.
Now I'm pretty sure I'm preaching to the choir at this point, so here's my question: Do any of you have suggestions for how to reasonably try to convey the fact that until African Americans take responsibility for the actions of their own race that this divide will never close? It doesn't help that I'm a white male who will easily be painted as a racist or as ignorant. Some people are so obsessed they're beyond reason, but I havn't given up on those who are simply misled and still willing to listen to sense, or accept that they're not completely correct.
Factors effecting the racial divide which most African Americans will take offense to:
-Lack of secondary education (believe it or not, African Americans do get high school diplomas/GEDs at almost the same rate as caucasians)
-Propensity to commit crime, especially violent crime
-Living in areas which lack economic potential (Good luck mowing lawns in the ghetto)
-Over-exaggeration of racism: Blaming other races for problems their race perpetuates
The list goes on and on. Does anyone have an idea of how to convey these facts without instantly getting shut down by the SJWs?
