To me, the past is the past and it shouldn't have anymore bearing on the present and the future. If black parents just raised their kids better today, their communities could change in a relatively short time.you get poor parenting in communities where people have been marginalised, or have historically experienced forced family breakups etc, and of course, this carries on down the generations.
That's my point with most asians. They feel shame and actually CARE about their image and what people think of them. Compare that to many blacks who don't care AT ALL and have little diginity or self respect and they keep committing crime and doing other things that make their race look bad.Motivated young men from the village may well leave, butthey have a sense of obligation and send money back to the village ... there is also the concept of family shame if people go off the rails. This means a lot more than it does here. You do not shame your family.
But then if anyone should ever call them out on it, they call you a 'racist'. That's like a get out of jail card for them. No matter what they do, just call whoever challenges them a racist to gloss over whatever bad behavior blacks display.
Crime is relatively low in most parts of Asia despite the majority of them living in worse poverty than any black American as ever experienced in the last several decades.Also - the socieities are very patriarchal, and even among adults there can be real fear of the father/senior males.
even so, there is still a lot of crime in cities.
Of course crime goes up during times of hardship and instability, but my question is why when most people in western countries and asia can live civvily and in relative peace that blacks can't do the same ANYWHERE?obviously there is a lot more to this - but historically (you can look at data over a number of centuries) you see crime rates (especially violent crime rates) are higher during periods of economic upheaval and instability in the society. historically, young men during these times have been recruited to fight wars (the hundred years war, the thirty years war etc), but still crime rates have been high.
And going by many blacks and their behaviour, most really aren't that educated. As I said, many blacks don't seem to reason, but rather act out physically which is why so many of them die over nothing incidents.Its not IQ as such, as the capacity for reason which is more likely to be found among people who are more educated, or who have been taught to respond rather than react to situations they find themselves in.
And just to keep a tab on the flash mob phenomena, it happened AGAIN yesterday, this time in DC with an ALL FEMALE black mob this time robbing a convienence store. What's the total now? A dozen or more black flash mobs vs ZERO non-black mobs? And I love how black people interviewed TRY AND JUSTIFY THE CRIME rather than speak out against it. And this is why very little changes in black communities and they're falling behind.
