Do you think that I was wrong about this facebook post dealing with racism?

    I think its so stupid how many fucking people are talking about how mostly white people are on food stamps in this country. Its the same stupid people that post things like racism doesn't exist because their are more white people in jail. NEWS FLASH IDIOTS this country is still predominately white.The way you prove racism is by showing that their is a higher percentage of African Americans that are convicted after being arrested than their are any other race. When you are comparing populations of different sizes the only fucking thing that matters is the comparison between two percentages of the different populations not the actual number of people. If only 5% of white people who get accused of crimes actually get convicted at trial, and 22% of black people who get arrested get convicted then their is still racism regardless of the fact that more white people are in jail. 5% of 77% of the population is still greater than half of a minority population. Same thing with these stupid food stamp posts people keep posting. What did you think was going to happen in a predominately white country? What matters is what percentage of the white population is on food stamps compared to what percentage of a minority population is on food stamps. Educate yourself and learn how to interpret statistical data correctly people

    LOL! so basically you think i'm right, but I shouldn't have posted this on Facebook. I agree with you, you're a much wiser man than I am. I deleted it a couple hours after I posted it, but I meant everything I said.

    No, you're right.

    But the PC police, mostly blacks, cannot accept the facts even when presented in context.


    Sad but true reality...

    Yes, you are right but as you will quickly learn we are a culture of feelings. Facts are mere technicalities to most people. Speaking the truth will only result in opprobriums being heaped upon you. Keep your Facebook postings benign and inane like the vast majority. It's really not the platform for deep thought and discussion.

    I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing.

    Not sure if you're being serious or not but in case you are serious, this is the very attitude that keeps the status quo. Spreading facts and truth is vitally important.

    I stumbled up on a truly egregious misrepresentation of statistics yesterday about 51% of all immigrants being on public assistance. The author of the article in USA TODAY really went out of his way to make an issue of the people who make up 2.29% of welfare recipients and totally pretend the other 97.61% don't even exist. He barely mentioned them and gave no stats on them.
