Here We Go Again With Racial Profiling

As intended, Comrade Obama's prime time assault on the police for doing their job despite the flak they get from jerks like his friend Skip Gates has brought the issue of "racial profiling" back into the news. Heather MacDonald injects a little sanity into the moonbattery:

[G]iven black crime rates, proactive urban policing will inevitably produce disparate stop and arrest rates. In New York, for example, blacks commit about 82 percent of all shootings, though they are 24 percent of the population; whites commit less than 1 percent of shootings, though they are 35 percent of the population.
Such disparities — which are typical of violent crime across the country — mean that when the police are searching for a gun suspect, they will almost never be stopping whites based on a victim identification, but will disproportionately be questioning blacks. As long as crime rates remain as unevenly distributed racially as they are, police activity will be as well.

No one benefits more from proactive policing than the minorities race-baiters like Obama pretend to champion. But liberal racism isn't about helping minorities. It's about reducing them to farm animals that can be milked for their votes.

On a tip from Edward.

Numbers don't lie. If you disproportionately commit more crime, of course you will be disproportionately arrested.

Stop committing crime and the "disparity" in arrest rates will fix itself.

Ignorance to the law and statistics that highlight minority failures is no excuse to promote your affirmative action/equality agenda. Libtards....

Proof is in the pudding.

And don't forget: minorities are overwhelmingly the victims of crimes committed by minorities. If you don't arrest minorities who are committing crimes, you are putting even more innocent minorities in danger.

liberal racism isn't about helping minorities. It's about reducing them to farm animals that can be milked for their votes.

It is also about raising the pay of politicians while destroying the productiveness and wealth of the "actual wealthy", while convincing the farm animals it is helping them.

Chris Rock on black people. Undeniable truth. If you take offense to this then you need to firmly place your face into the desk in front of you.

When the UCR (Uniform Crime Report) is published each year, it is reported by European journalists. In the States, the local rag may report increase/decrease in categories of crime, but the racial breakdown is generally ignored. It is astounding what you don't see in the news.

Okay, I'm going into problem solving mode now.

Whites should start committing more crimes and should be involved in more shootings. Once as many whites are doing these things as blacks then there's no statistical significance to what race is committing more crimes.

How's that for a solution?

In Liar, Liar, Jim Carrey had an elegant solution for things like this.

From the article: national chain stores have moved in to areas that they had long shunned, bringing jobs and desperately needed consumer choices.

It's amazing what a little free enterprise can do for a area - create jobs without a Federal stimulus, raise the standard of living for the inhabitants and make life generally more pleasant. What is so frickin' hard for the left to understand about this? The left's ideology is completely bankrupt, and the head lefty-in-charge is proving it by the hour.

Great point about minorities benefiting from good police work. It deepens the irony about Skip Gates: police were investigating the break-in at a minority's house. And no good deed goes unpunished.

Here is a good one. The DOJ considers Hispanics to be white then they commit a crime. When they are victims they are categorized as a minority. Look at the DOJ website.
