I don't think it is possible to name a single factor that makes people criminals. The same is true about excluding reasons. Ethnicity is a broad and complex factor which is a part of even more complex set of cultural, social, economic and other factors which shape human life. Big cities have a higher crime rate than country, it is true. The question is why big cities are more attractive to certain groups of people defined not necessarily by race, but also by age, education, even gender, etc.

On the second...what with the sheer ridiculousness of you now pulling all 10 fingernails from the black people, giving an estimated weight for each nail combined with the attempt at mathematically explaining how many black men commit violent crimes or murder based off the calculations of fingernail weight and quantity......are you punking me or trolling me? Are you being serious? Because it seems like its an attempt at punking or humor.

Why would you pull their fingernails off?

You used imagining a room of 100 people to make it easier to visualize how many people were responsible for being more than half of all homicide offenders. You identified 13 Black people and said a percentage of them were those responsible.

To visualize that percentage of those, the proportion was worked out between those Black homicide offenders and the general population, and that proportion was used to make the visual comparison.

I only followed your lead by taking your visual aid to its logical conclusion so we can clearly visualize how many of those Black people in the room are responsible for being more than half of all homicide offenders. It's ten fingernails from each of those 13 of the 100 people in the room.

If it seems ridiculous, it's probably because we are dealing with a very small fraction of a small fraction regarding a crime that kills twice as less people than the number of Americans who die each year from injuries sustained from falling.

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Yet you forgot to weigh in the body parts needed to include violent crimes as that was part of the original comment. When all added together i couldn't care less how many legs or arms you try to add in, the fact remains, they are viewed with more apprehension entirely because of the extremely disproportionate amount of violent crimes and murders committed by some members of their race. The bad guys don't wear a bad guy uniform so they are often treated by LEO with an energy equal to what they are putting out.

Equating murder numbers as not so bad because its only half as many people as die from falling...seriously...whats wrong with the way you think?

I already spoke to the statistic about being responsible for violent crime when I quoted the FBI showing Black Americans are responsible for 33% of non-fatal violent crime. Since being responsible for 33% of that kind of crime is significantly less than being 55.9% of homicide offenders, there was no reason to explicitly state there would be less fingernails per Black person in the second room made for visualizing the ratio for that kind of crime.

they are viewed with more apprehension entirely because of the extremely disproportionate amount of violent crimes and murders committed by some members of their race.

Yes, it is natural for people to make that kind of error.

Where did I say that?

WOW. I just don't even know what else to say to someone like you. I wouldn't have believed people like you even existed until I just saw it with my own two eyes...and 10 fingernails. Enjoy your "Holiday celebrating the purposeful genocide of the indigenous peoples of the North American continent at the hands of the murderous, oppressive white occupiers day", i will enjoy Thanksgiving day.

I've completely lost the trail. They confused the hell out of me. I have no idea what they're even trying to say.

I'm not sure what you guys are saying. For all I know, you might be in total agreement but lost me in the quicksand of a really confusing metaphor. It happens. Not normally to truck drivers. Probably more often to poets or folks in academia. But hey, complex metaphors can pop up almost anywhere!

I think myself a relatively smart person, but my brain hurt trying to figure it out, so I quit trying. I think it may be that only he know what was being said.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.

It's like when they would say the average American household has 2.3 children. Where'd all those third ones' limbs go?

Mikey put 100 people in a room so we could see who was responsible for all those homicides. 13 of them were Black people, but they were standing in for 44 million Black people, so like one family having 2.3 children, only 0.00001 of those Black people in Mikey's room were homicide offenders.

If you wanted to picture that like Mikey wanted us to, you look at all their fingernails. The rest of their bodies never killed anyone.

Geez, we get it, you're super smart, quit kicking the dead horse already.
