Sorry, I was being a dick. I have problems with the police to an extent yeah, but I never really liked the whole “I don’t feel safe around the people who are supposed to protect me line”. My bad for being a dick though. Also the whole, “how little us white people have to worry about these things” is tiresome as well. White males are actually slightly (NOTE: I said slightly) more likely (with respect to other groups) to be killed during an interaction with police. Black and Hispanic males are more likely to be physically abused (NOTE: this does not mean killed) during more or less minor interactions with police than white males. So you have a point to an extent, but the whole premise for a lot of popular thought is that black men are more likely to be killed by the police than any other group. And that’s untrue. Also, I don’t just mean the sheer number of instances, because of course that’s going to be larger currently because there are more white dudes. I mean the likelihood. And like I said, it’s slightly higher, but that “slightly” is important.
No worries, I get you! I think you're looking wrongly at the statistics though, or maybe you're looking at the wrong statistics. Yes, a higher percentage of white people are killed by police than black people *out of those killed*. Adjusting for racial representation across the US population though results in black people being nearly 3x more likely to be killed by police than white peopleAnd black people killed by police is just the tip of the iceberg in systemic racism. That stuff is deep rooted. It's a problem that needs solvingObviously though, the police aren't supposed to kill people at all. Firearms are only intended to incapacitate a very dangerous person by shooting them in the arm/shoulder/leg. Killing should be nothing but an absolute last resort. Black people may be overrepresented among those killed by police but police brutality is a problem for everyone regardless of race
I appreciate your response. I’ll look into that. It’s nice actually having a cordial conversation
They made a study about that?
@YourSongWell, not one. But yeah, that sort of stuff is studied.
Hoe heet het? Ben wel benieuwd
Aha haha ook nederlands.Ik ging net zeggen dat de bronnen in het Nederlands waren 😅nos.nl/.../...een-andere-etnische-achtergrond.htmlwww.trouw.nl/.../www.ad.nl/.../Het zijn natuurlijk geen journals, maar goed
Haha jup😂Ik ben wel verbaasd dat ze zoveel erover hebben geschreven. Meestal wordt het namelijk flink ontkent
Ja klopt, op facebook enzo wordt iedereen bij zulke berichten ook altijd boos 😂😂 maar ja het is goed dat het natuurlijk onderzocht word
Inderdaad en instaNu moeten ze er nog iets aan doen. Vind ik
Ja mee eens. Alleen is het natuurlijk gigantisch moeilijk om zoiets te handhaven. Dus als je bekrompen/racistische mensen hebt ga je dat wss ook hebben.
Dat is waar☹️
Volgens mij was het overigens wel zo dat gemeente Amsterdam er what actiever in is, maar dat is natuurlijk maar een klein deel in Nederland
Moet overal komen haha
Haha dat sowieso wel
Just a couple days ago I saw a post in Whisper where an employer admits firing a white employee just to hire a person of color
Our perception of reality is all you have
CLOWNWORLDProfessor Put on Leave After Students Are Offended by Chinese Word That Sounds Like N-WordThe left had gone full mental illness and of course, cases like this prove, racism is everywhere 😆 what a pathetic bunch or losers.
The DOJ recently completed a 2 year investigation where they concluded that Yale illegally discriminated against white and Asian applicants on the basis of race. You’re welcome.
This is from the Wallstreetjournal“The department found that every year from 2000 to 2017, Yale’s admitted class had a lower share of Asian-American students than would have reflected their proportion in the applicant pool; the same held true for white applicants during a majority of those years, the Justice Department said. Meanwhile, Yale admitted candidates from what the department referred to as “preferred racial groups,” including Black and Hispanic students, at a higher rate than would reflect their share of the applicant pool.”
Granted thewallstreetjournal also said that Yale denied the findings and found them baseless, despite the fact that the DOJ was using 10 years of admissions records. FYI I got a chance to talk to a then director of undergraduate admissions at Yale several years ago. Choose to believe me or not. I’m fairly certain you won’t. But regardless, what I was told was that “officially we don’t have quotas, but really we have quotas”. I got waitlisted and had a 2350 on the SAT and a 35 on the ACT and a 3.99 GPA at a magnet school. And oddly enough the article has a line “The Justice Department said Thursday that Yale’s use of race is “anything but limited.” It said the university takes race into account at multiple points and racially balances its class in a practice similar to quotas.”
So again, you’re welcome 👌
Although I guess your incredulity shouldn’t be surprising because you’re probably also some critical theory, anti post positivist, interpretivist dumb dumb. “Muh ideas are great because they make me feel good about myself. It really doesn’t matter that they are unable to be disproven because they are conveniently untestable.” But I’m sure you’ve never considered that. The entire area more or less is filled with screeching obscurantist midwits who get made fun of by actually legitimate scholars
Nice response. You actually added to the previous one with the inclusion of an extra “s”. 10/10
@Pollstershartlord so did you with your nonsense paragraph
Nonsense in what sense? There was more than one paragraph. Your response was “bs” then you said “bss” for your second response. So I was literally referring to the addition of another letter “s”. I apologize if you don’t want to look into the DOJ thing because it is counter evidence to what you might think lol. And for your benefit I quoted the wallstreetjournal, because I assume you’re fairly left leaning. If you mean nonsense when I made fun of critical theory and interpretivism, read a book called “fashionable nonsense: postmodern intellectuals abuse of science” by Alan Sokal and Jean Bricmont. Or look at instances where actual scientists have messed with postmodern intellectuals and showed that even they (the intellectuals) don’t know what they’re talking about. I’m sorry that you’re actually getting called out for considering people with iqs of around 115-125 geniuses though. This is what’s known as the midwit range
@Pollstershartlord didn’t read, just like your other paragraphs, this isn’t a paper that’s due. Roll back!
I actually had evidence to support my initial claim in this comment thread. You didn’t even do that. Your responses amount to “nuh uh”, another “nuh uh”, then “well you...”. Extremely convincing
You gave an opinion on something you didn’t even read. Wow. Just wow.
@Pollstershartlord go back to your basement
Now the name calling. You’re truly an exceptional individual. I really mean it. Do you take orders directly from Doink the clown? And by the way, I have my own apartment 👍
@Pollstershartlord what name exactly did I call you? Continue being a victim boo hoo
Basement dweller. The implication in saying “go back to your basement” is that I live in a basement. So not only do you form opinions without having read things, you don’t understand language even when you use it. Again, exceptional individual. You could be a thermometer because your iq would match the temperature of the room
@Pollstershartlord please continue your victim mentality
I don’t have a victim mentality. You’re the one who said initially “yes because it’s true”. Such a blanket statement is indicative of a victim mentality. Mine was nuanced and I never said anything about “feeling” like a victim. I said what I did, which was bring up counter evidence. So room temp iq, language processing difficulties, and delusional. Anything else you want to add?
@Pollstershartlord I’m gonna stop replying because I’m done with your victim mentality, go to your kkk meeting
I never even said what my own race was. You just can’t handle being wrong and are too stupid to argue a point. And you think I’m the one with a victim mentality. You are a legitimate stereotype of cookie cutter views with no nuance or subtlety. You’re retarded. Legitimately.
I assume you’re late to your meeting with the circus though
