Fear at the root of America's race problem

https://www.bangkokpost.com/opinion/opinion/1929128/fear-at-the-root-of-americas-race-problem


More to the point, in this context, is the fact that about 30% of American civilians killed by the police are African-Americans, although they are only 13% of the US population.

  1. Misleading use of statistics which constitutes the usual talking points of those who craft these false narratives to convince people the USA is rotten. DT, have you even lived in the USA in the post-civil rights era? Don't be a gullible fool.

    They say similar rubbish about UK, eg disproportionately high number of blacks being stopped by police, or arrested or imprisoned. Well, perhaps it's because an even higher disproportionate number of blacks are involved in knife crime, drugs, murder etc. We never really had slavery in UK. Most blacks came here after ww2, and more recently.
    How about a disproportionate number of Jews study in religious schools and seminaries, universities, and are a higher number of Nobel Prize laureates.

  4. I notice you neglected to mention how long it's been since you lived in America. But you "know better than me" - Great "argument from authority" but debate doesn't work that way, you don't get to claim Daas Torah like you are the Gadol of American politics.
    This isn't the Jim Crow era anymore DT.
    "Systemic racism" is a myth propagated by ideologues. You would be hard-pressed to find even a single individual who supports what Chauvin did to Floyd because of skin color or for any other reason. I have yet to see anyone come out in support of police brutality. Because no one supports that. Ascribing sick beliefs to people who don't actually hold them is part of the widespread mental illness afflicting America.

    When you adjust for number of violent crimes committed and the number of police encounters with violent criminals of various races, the "disparity" you cited disappears entirely.

  5. All anyone has to do is watch TV and tune in Tucker Carlson, or go on YouTube or on social media or any of the news aggregator sites to know who is behind the rioting, looting, and attacks on police and civilians.

    Turns out the coroner's report is a bombshell. Could be Mr. Floyd had lethal does of street drugs in him. That'll come out at trial. For now we know he had a violent criminal past and he had various street drugs in his system at the time of his arrest which was a totally legitimate arrest.

    The officer exercised poor situational control, and lacked focus, perhaps because he was being harassed by people nearby. But he's no racist, brutal, murderer, which is reflected in the charges against him so far.

    I can see him beating the charges, but he'll probably plead guilty. He's safer off in jail, anyway.

  6. Overreach and abuse in probe against Trump.
    See https://www.wsj.com/articles/rod-rosenstein-knew-nothing-11591310992?mod=opinion_featst_pos1

    “Yet Mr. Rosenstein didn’t question whether the probe into the Trump campaign involved overreach and abuse similar to that in the Clinton fiasco. He never pushed back on the absurd notion that an incoming national security adviser had violated the obscure Logan Act. Mr. Rosenstein agreed with Mr. Graham that by August 2017 there was still no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion. Yet he admitted that when the Mueller team provided him an expanded scope for its investigation, he simply signed off on it.”

    Was there overreach and abuse in my case? Allow me my letter yesterday to the NYS Court of Appeals:
    “1.I request permission to submit these papers concerning my motion dated May 14, 2020 that had a return date June 1, 2020. I'm attaching an affidavit of service proving I mailed by UPS a true copy to Susan and to TIAA. This is my response to the substance of your May 11, 2020 letter. I incorporated changes to my motion dated May 7, 2020 based on my conversation with your staff. I thought that my motion dated May 7, 2020 was deficient only because I failed to include Exhibit B Judge Prus Final Order November 16, 2016. The email from Judge Prus and his new ruling are new facts that warrant a new appeal. Judge Prus' new email shows bias: his disregard and contempt for my arguments, not worthy of a judge in NYS.

    2.Your May 11, 2020 letter states:
    I acknowledge receipt of your motion dated May 7, 2020, which apparently seeks leave to appeal from an email dated May 6, 2020.
    The Court of Appeals is a court of strictly limited appellate jurisdiction. An email is not a paper appealable to the Court of Appeals (see CPLR 5512). This is not a judicial determination but an effort to be of service to you. If you wish a judicial determination on the appealability of the May 6, 2020 email, please so advise by return correspondence with proof of service of the same upon your adversary, and your papers will be submitted to the Court on an appropriate return date.

    3.CPLR 5512 states
    Appealable paper; entry of order made out of court. (a)
    Appealable paper. An initial appeal shall be taken from the judgment or
    order of the court of original instance and an appeal seeking review of
    an appellate determination shall be taken from the order entered in the
    office of the clerk of the court whose order is sought to be reviewed.
    If a timely appeal is taken from a judgment or order other than that
    specified in the last sentence and no prejudice results therefrom and
    the proper paper is furnished to the court to which the appeal is taken,
    the appeal shall be deemed taken from the proper judgment or order.
    (b) Entry of order made out of court. Entry of an order made out of
    court and filing of the papers on which the order was granted may be
    compelled by order of the court from or to which an appeal from the
    order might be taken.

    4.Yes, I do wish a judicial determination on the appealability of the May 6, 2020 email (Exhibit A Judge Prus Order May 6, 2020) along with Exhibit B Judge Prus Final Order November 16, 2016. Please submit my motion papers dated May 14, 2020 to the Court with an appropriate return date (June 22, 2020).”

  12. “Fear at the root” See
    http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/281379

    When asked why she opposed a Palestinian state if the plan includes difficult conditions for them, and in any case they won't accept it, Shaked said: "That's true, but who can promise me there won't be a different administration in the US, which isn't committed to the conditions detailed today, and which will rely only on the Israeli agreement to create a Palestinian state in half of the land?”

    Bravo Ayelet Shaked ! With Trump alive and well there is no worry and no fear! Fear is the rise of the progressive Left in the USA

  14. And yet they commit at least 26% of the crime in the U.S. as per arrests.

  15. are you seriously claiming there is no racial issue?!

  16. Daas Torah Mod “are you seriously claiming there is no racial issue?!” Glad you’re back, DT, stay well.
    We’re angry at Chauvin’s 8” chokehold on Floyd. Is Chauvin a racist brutal murderer? We’ll see in the trial, maybe. My letter today to the NYS Court of Appeals I claim I can't breathe without my pension (humor).

    "1.I request permission to submit these papers concerning my motion dated May 14, 2020 that had a return date June 1, 2020. I'm attaching an affidavit of service proving I mailed by UPS a true copy to Susan and to TIAA. I understand from my phone conversation yesterday with your staff that you have not yet decided exactly how to proceed with my motion dated May 14, 2020 that had a return date June 1, 2020. My aim in this letter that you assign me a motion number with a new return date.
    2.Judge Prus put a chokehold on me with his 9/10/2013 “ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the existing QDRO and resulting judgment dated December 5, 2007, shall be continued.” Chokehold means held for a tight grip around a person's neck, used to restrain them by restricting their breathing: “the police have banned chokeholds.” The chokehold keeps me from my pension, my air to breathe. From 1994-2020 = 26 years with no end in sight. Judges Rigler, Garson, Ambrosio, and Prus kept me from my pension for child support. I'm in NYS court custody from 1991, arrested. I live on Israel and USA social security and 45% pension. Yes I got the $1200 Treasury check. My debts are mounting. Please I can't manage financially without my pension. Maybe, somehow, you could free up my pension. TIAA? Susan? Please I can't manage financially without my pension. Please I can't manage financially without my pension. Aren't there laws against blocking a person from his pension like this? Please allow me to call your office to know if you assigned me a motion number or not. Your staff asked me, politely, not to call your office but to wait to hear by mail. I'm in Israel where ordinary air-mail is slow and unreliable. I appeal to Susan to tell TIAA that I owe no more child support.
    3.Elvis Presley Blue Suede Shoes 1956: Don't step on my blue suede shoes
    Well, it's a-one for the money Two for the show Three to get ready now go, cat, go But don't you Step on my blue suede shoes Well you can do anything But lay off o' my blue suede shoes Well you can knock me down Step in my face Slander my name all over the place Well do anything that you wanna do But uh-uh honey, lay off o' them shoes And don't you Step on my blue suede shoes Well you can do anything But lay off o' my blue suede shoes Let's go, cats! Oh, walk the dog! Well you can burn my house Steal my car Drink my liquor from an old fruit jar Well do anything that you wanna do But uh-uh honey, lay off o' my shoes And don't you Step on my blue suede shoes
    Well you can do anything But lay off o' my blue suede shoes Rock it! Well it's a-one for the money Two for the...
    4.Elvis sings that it's OK with him that she steps in his face and slanders his name all over the place and she burns his house, steals his car, drinks his liquor---But uh-uh honey, lay off o' them shoes And don't you Step on my blue suede shoes. In my case, lay off my pension. It's a chokehold you have on me. I can't breathe without my pension."

    Parody = an imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist, or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect. "the movie is a parody of the horror genre"
    My letter is a parody of black lives matter.
