    He is. Good lord, Dana, do you read ANYTHING besides Town Hall and other wack-job lunatic sites? Do you do ANY research before you pick up your pen? You are incompetent and, in your business, that amounts to simply undermining the public good.

    I have no use for DeBlasio but what does he have to do with the blowback from cops killing people, black and white people, disfiguring babies in their SWAT raids, beating and tasering old people and pregnant women, etc? Granted they kill more blacks than whites but that’s because blacks commit more crime.

    Don’t be stupid. Of course the lives of cops matters. But so do the lives of the civilians they are sworn to protect.

    “Granted they kill more blacks than whites but that’s because blacks commit more crime.”

    When you don’t back up a claim like that with any kind of statistic, it gives the claim a whiff of racism.

    Here is a good summary of it. DOJ shows that between 1980 and 2008, Blacks account for 52.5% of homicides, despite blacks accounting for only 12% of the population. There are your statistics.

    Still being lazy, do a little research before you spew.

    de Blasio is too busy throwing the press under the bus to hold his end up. And the New York press laps it up like the cowering dogs they are.

    You ignore my point. If you’re going to make a claim like that, back it up.

    Thank you. The link you kindly provided included a thoughtful and in depth section on Modern theories of causation that goes well beyond “black people commit more crimes.” We as a society need to take a hard look at those reasons and address them.

    When ALL lives matter, in the eyes of ALL of us, we will have passed the first step toward wisdom as a nation. (And that includes lives overseas as well.)

    He backed it up. Then you moved the bar. Typical.

    No problem. Of course, I recognize that correlation does not mean causation. But it does beg the question why there is such a high rate of commission of violent crime for such a small segment of the population distribution.

    Oppression by the white man is not the cause of such crime. As I mentioned in an earlier Ramirez ‘toon, I believe it has to do with culture. I won’t rehash it, but I’m pretty certain that any “racism” that people are perceiving from the (insert group here) is not helped by the black community’s behavior. I would dare say some racism is brought out because of that behavior.
