And if you think this is an exaggeration, just look at how outlawing leaded gas impacted crime rates:

But I guess we liberals are the 'real racists' by the 'soft bigotry of low expectations' because we don't think black people aren't adversely impacted by lead exposure -_-

For those who would say the disparity of lead poisoning doesn't come close to matching the crime disparity, that data was taken from children <8 years ago. In the 1990s (when many of the children who are young adults now would have been affected by it), it was quite a bit higher:

To those who think that black people commit more violent crimes because "it's in their blood", no shit, lead tends to do that to people when it gets into your system.
