    Blacks commit far more serious crimes than any other group.
    There is your explanation right there, and totally not even mentioned in the study.
    Easiest debunking all morning!

      I remember the story of the two rich black kids who used to do home invasions for kicks. The one got shot and killed by an elderly man with a musket.

      The point being if you look at the stats of rich kids and crime you’ll see the rich white kids uselly get arrested for things lije DUI and drug possession… the rich blacks usually for violent crimes because even ines generations removed from the ghetto seem to want to emulate it.

      Yup! It’s more a question of Crime Trumps Race.

  • It’s not as black and white as all that….

    So, another apples to oranges comparison study.
    How are the arrested black kids getting rich?
    thug life?

    I seriously don’t care.
    I’ve heard enough whining and bitching from blacks that it’s just white noise now. STFU and solve your own problems.
