A disproportionate share of blacks and Latinos lose their driver’s licenses because of unpaid tickets


On Tuesday, a state Senate committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on a bill that would prevent the DMV from suspending licenses because of an inability to pay or failure to show up in court to contest tickets.

    Now for a humorous musical interlude.

    Now it makes sense for why Obama want to cancel all the Fines to poor people that are at risk for doing jail time. It’s mostly non-whites breaking the laws and we can’t hold them to the same standards a White Folks.

    • Leftists back themselves into corners all the time.

        When you just don’t care, it liberates you from a lot of the White Man’s laws.
        If you are a scumbag, that will likely never “legally” work, or own anymore than the clothes on your back and a stolen iPhone, you can let all sorts of things slide.

        • And the truth is traffic infractions are the easiest things to contest in court — at least in Canada. Reason being, cops can’t afford to attend court every time a minor infraction is contested. So cops are usually a no-show, which means you automatically win the case. I’m sure “poor people” with cars already know this. So if the poor are avoiding court it’s probably for a major violation of the criminal sort.

        • So where will these idiots go when there are no civilised places left to go?

            What happens to any parasite after it kills the hosts? It’s usally next, unless it can jump hosts.
            These people are not thinking anywhere close to that deep, or far ahead.

          • That’s just it. North America and Europe are stinkholes because of backward cultures. Where do these idiots go after North America becomes a dump? Asia?

            Fat chance!

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            They are not thinking beyond their next meal, and so they would also think nothing of killing all of us if for some temporary or even imagined gain.
            Our values are not their values and much of their culture is animated by a hatred of people that look like us, because we do not look like them, yet we have more things than they have, and they hate that.
            They see whites like Nazis see Jews.
            It really IS that base and low-rent retarded.

          • And people twice voted for the guy who is doing this to them.


          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Yep, but in his first term he was just an idiot. His real evil didn’t shine until after the 2012 election.
            That’s what happens when you open the floodgates on third-world immigration and both parties have a vested interest in keeping the gate open.

          • This is what happens when you don’t stamp out communism.

  • Buyin’ votes wit chour dollahs!

  • Black laws for blacks, Hispanic laws for Hispanics, and honkie laws for honkies.

    Sounds like a typical liberal viewpoint.

      Shari’a law for all!

      As the US descends into anarchy, who needs driver’s licences or car insurance?

      Adam Carolla on bullshit tickets.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Stop requiring them to have licenses and stop writing tickets. Just suspend all known laws.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    I knew this had to somehow involve my state.
    Blacks and Mexicans (and Centeral Americans) are pretty damn notorious for not showing up for their tickets and letting them go to warrant.
    There have been many programs in the past to deal with this discrepancy, yet they don’t show up for those either.

    • Time to move to Texas.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Oh yeah, I’d totally escape all Hispanic nonsense by moving to Texas!
        Have you ever been there? 😉

        • Yes, and I love it. It’s funny – or maybe inevitable – that the state most exposed to illegal immigration is also at the forefront of controlling it.

          And let me tell you about the girls in Abilene…

  • simus1

    The wheels got the ticket man. Arrest the wheels.
    Maybe tell finco first their car bein’ bad.

  • Why even have laws?

    So what does this say about black and Hispanic Americans who CAN obey traffic laws?

    (SEE: Bigotry of lowered expectations)

  • lgeubank

    Let’s see — minorities commit more lawlessness (refusing to pay tickets or appear in court). As a result, they are punished more (license revoked).

    Therefore, by the principle of “racial disparity,” minorities must get a free pass on lawlessness in the future.

    And similarly with minorities disrupting schools. And similarly with minorities committing actual crimes. And so on, and so on, and scoobie-doobie-doobie.

      Sounds like a case for segregation.
