In my frequent debates with various Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism Chasers there is an unmistakable tactic in which they attempt to shift the debate from the focus on the events that are going on INSIDE of the Black community that has Black mothers so terrorized inside of their homes, fearing having their children shot via stray bullets that fly as a result of the drug game over to a discussion that primarily focuses OUTSIDE of the Black community. Their trip to the outside of our community speaks volumes. They are not interested in dealing with the problems INSIDE of our community. They are primarily interested in fighting the "Racial Proxy Fight" by introducing various points of data that bring WHITE FOLKS into the debate on the drug problems in the Black Community.
The latest tactics is to make the case that "More white folks use drugs but more Black folks now sit in prison due to drug related crimes". This is used as part of their theory that the "Drug Problem" in the Black community is a function of the Police targeting of and incarceration of Black people while White folks are allowed to get high but not worry about the threat of arrest and separation from their families. In their theory the cycle of drug commerce, arrest, incarceration and profit from the process is driving the disproportionate detainment of Black people. The goal is to destroy the Black community in their view.
They point to reports such as this (Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/van-jones/are-blacks-a-criminal-rac_b_8398.html). Note how DRUG ARRESTS are the basis of their argument that Blacks are being targeted more than Whites and thus the system is against us. As long as you focus in on DRUGS but no other crimes - you too can be taken by the slight of hand. You see WHITE FOLKS have a motivation for keeping WHITE KILLERS AND CRIMINALS walking the streets in their communities and continuing their crimes against White folks. These White people HATE BLACK PEOPLE MORE THAN THEY HATE WHITE CRIMINALS and thus they seek to protect their criminals
Again as long as you focus on the drug use incarceration rate all is well. It is via my keen detective skills that did a bit of cross referencing to shoot down yet another slight of hand with the facts.
While the numbers show that Black people involved in the drug trade indeed are incarcerated at a higher rate than are White people......the introduction of this second factoid showcases the slight of hand that these apologists are working with:
First the Bureau of Justice page: http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/homicide/race.htm
Next the data plot (please see above)
Next - let us disaggregate the data and focus on the Drug related homicide data series:
Drug Related Homicides:
White Offenders: 33.9%
Black Offenders: 65.0%
Other Offenders: 1.1%
White Victims: 37.4%
Black Victims: 61.6%
Other Victims: 0.9%
Finally please note the legend that accompanies the chart on the BJS page:
Black victims are over represented in homicides involving drugs. Compared with the overall involvement of blacks as victims, blacks are less often the victims of sex-related homicides, workplace killings, and homicide by poison.
SOMETHING DOES NOT COMPUTE!
The warrior in the racial proxy fight is not going to bring this factoid forward because it runs counter to his claims. If the WHITE DRUG ECOSYSTEM produced street deaths as is the case with the Street Corner Pharmacists.......this special notation would not be necessary. White would be represented as such in this stat.
Instead, what they are loathed to tell the world is that it is true that there are more White people who are drug involved. There are far more White people in the United States and thus their drug numbers will no doubt be greater. At the same time the urban drug ecosystem is more highly concentrated within specific inner city locations and the violence that accompanies it registers greater in the homicide reports on a daily basis across this country.
Again - their goal is to show that "White folks are also in the mud with us so why are they not being arrested as such?". Why is it that the accompanying statistics on drug related homicides not included in their factoring as a means of adding context to their incomplete picture?
Clearly they have little interests in dealing with the truth. They Hate White People More Than They Love To Find A Solution For The Black Community.
