Which has a greater likelihood of happening to a young black male
Being brutalized by a policemen or being raised in a fatherless home?
And if one has a greater effect on the child's chances for a successful upbringing than the other, why is only one addressed?

They won't address fatherless home because that's admitting a total cultural failure

No. I think kids are raised in fatherless homes, left without proper supervision and guidance, and then encouraged by their peers to disrespect authority figures.

When one is a violent illegal act perpetrated under the color of authority by people paid for by the collective it is the one that "we" have the most direct control over.

I do agree we need to address the social and cultural problems that feed the other issue as well.

So the black community has more direct control over changing police behavior than their own?

this is the problem.

You cannot have intelligent debate, if one side is lacking the requirements.....

No but "we" do. "We" have an obligation as citizens to "force" the end of crimes committed under the color of authority directly. I can only indirectly aid in the change of black culture and socio-economic conditions the same as I can only indirectly impact the culture and socio-economic conditions that cause meth to be a problem in Livingston.

Just because the black population has a cultural problem we should not use that as an excuse to turn our backs on violent illegal acts against them. Just because one problem might be more widespread than the other is no excuse for overlooking it especially when it is easier for us to address more directly.

A black male has a greater chance of going to jail then he does of his parents still being together on his 18th bday.


That is sad and nothing to make fun of.

Feels like a straw man, but ill play along.

Fatherless home is more likely to happen. Unlike the former it can be caused multiple ways

The mom slept with a man and never married

OR the mom married the man, things went south in the marriage, and the divorced mom is now taking care of the kid.

The reason we go after police is the same reason doctors lose their license for malpractice or soldiers get court martial for bad behavior. Police (regardless of the parties involved) are held to a higher standard as per their position of authority.

Ill be the first to say some police shootings are justified. But some are not and if caught planting evidence , people should not run to their defense.
And being pulled over simply based on skin color or "perceived guilt without cause" is not the best action.

I keep a camera in my vehicle for this exact reason.
