    I just heard this this interview on Fresh Air:

    (as a point of reference, this was in the 1986-1993 time frame)

    http://www.npr.org/2014/10/20/356964925/one-lawyers-fight-for-young-blacks-and-just-mercy


    I thought this was a really interesting, wide-ranging interview.

    there is a reason why SOME end up in jail, large numbers of morons out beating people just for fun is one of them.

    teens & assorted morons having "fun"

    knocking people out is just a "game".

    ....


    ....


    Seriously. You REALLY think there is a significant population of teenagers just beating the **** out of people for fun to the point where it is a signifier of how the overall teen population in the country behave?

    *awaits posts of "knockout game" clickbait news stories*

    keywords being "significant" & "overall". how many would qualify as "significant" to you? I would say there was a "significant" number at the Kroger attack; as for "overall"? no, of course not, already posted the pertinent links, you are free to overlook them as you wish.

    Thing is, this "knockout game" does not appear to be a pervasive feature of the national urban landscape, it seems to be something more like a three-off, as it were. It is just not an issue, so the bigger a deal you try to make of it, the more your cred gets eroded by the outgoing tide of meh.

    teens are engaging in plenty of stupidity

    black/brown/poor are still treated like criminals by police for seemingly no reason, but plenty of morons who obviously DESERVE to be behind bars does not make things easy for the rest who do not engage in that stupidity.

    People can say whatever the hell want, but you'll learn a lot about the mess that is happening in the black community by hitting up www.worldstarhiphop.com

    Consume that for a couple of hours and then get back to me.

    For every 1 instance of true black injustice there is probably 100 instances of a black person digging their own hole.

    Typical America, blame it on the nearest black guy... We are nowhere near the glass ceiling Rosa Parkes tried to crash through. I don't know how you can live in a country with that many ongoing social issues against people purely because of the colour of their skin.

    Hey now, it's not just race, we also don't give a **** (policy wise) about anyone making less than $100,000. Don't be so discriminatory.

    Some people are smart enough to understand there is a difference between profiling, social inequality, police brutality, and the effects of white privilege compared to having out of wedlock kids to thugs, drug dealing, knock out games and an overall cultural acumen that favors being a victim of their own circumstance and criminality.

    I'm still trying to figure out where "The opposite of poverty is justice" came from.

    Yes, and skin colour should never make any of that an issue... I am a person who is completely skin colour ambivalent having no strong feelings what so ever about the issue and I don't understand how this is so difficult to understand, or accept.

    I don't like in Arkansas though, so I can't think about how you people deal with the issue.

    Are you serious? Do you really want me to cite every law that gives more power and wealth to the already wealthy, to cite every example of corporate rule?

    We're going to be here a while.

    your post was rather vague, kind of a catch all, I was just wondering if you had specific a policy in mind.
