What has also changed are the goalposts. Race baiters look for ever more minute “micro-aggressions” to keep fanning a sense of resentment that they are determined to keep.

h/t Steven Pinker

  • Sadly, there will always be some sort of inequality. That is the human condition which must be countered in each era.

    That being said, labels and excuses have given the emotionally unstable every opportunity to blame others, not themselves or larger things, for their problems. It’s a form of societal devolution.

      You are right miss,society will always blame others by whatever means.

      • Indeed.

        I had just read an article where an American man complained that his half black son would not be able to enjoy the privileges he enjoys in the West. I thought: ‘what utter rot!’ Not only is this guy paranoid but he has created an avenue of labelling and excuse-making for his son.

    The chances of a white person being a victim of a black criminal are hugely greater than the reverse. It would be interesting to see how that statistic has changed over a century.

    The race baiters have a vested interest in keeping their gravy train going, for without it most would be unable to earn a living doing any kind of actual work. The Left also has a vested interest in keeping the flames burning, for it is the old divide and conquer approach. They never seem to grasp that throughout history those flames have often burned them to a crisp in the end.

    A graph of that shape would be produced just due to the fact that the number of ‘all-white’ neighborhoods has decreased: “Would I move if a black family moved next door? There already is one, so ‘no'”. It’s not clear that they controlled for that in the study.

    Can we also have a graph for the number of violent crimes comitted by blacks against non-blacks?

      Yeah, go visit Stuff Black People Don’t Like.

    That graph is a crock.
    It displays only what people say in public.
    They vote with their feet.
    How black is Detroit?
    Should be thirteen percent based on national statistics.
    But, it’s eighty three percent.
