A large minority of Americans think Breonna Taylor would not have been shot by police if she'd been white instead of black: From what has been reported, police blindly returned fire in the course of executing a drug-related search warrant when Taylor's boyfriend shot at them, hitting one cop in the leg. It seems neither... Read More
Nearly two months of civil unrest putatively directed at the police has not been enough to shake most Americans, including blacks, out of a favorable view of their local police forces: The window for rethinking public police forces was slammed shut by the chaotic mobs that accompanied its opening. It's difficult for people to favorably... Read More
Last year, 1,004 people were fatally shot by police. The vast majority of them were armed men. Over the last two decades, the number of men who take their own lives each year has increased by over 13,000. That's not 13,000 men who kill themselves annually--that's 13,000 more men who kill themselves today than killed... Read More
The following table shows the percentages of reported stolen property that ends up being recovered and returned to its rightful owner: In just 1 out of every 25 jewelry thefts, the stolen jewelry is recovered. Those dismal percentages are for items victims bothered to go through the process of reporting. The recovery rates for filched... Read More
- When the state says there is nothing to worry about, assume panic behind the scenes: Turns out the problem of police snuffing out blacks isn't as serious a threat to black lives as black-on-black violence is. Nationwide, the police kill around 250 blacks each year. Civilian blacks, by comparison, kill ten times as many... Read More
When middle America became restless over the forever lock downs, breathless admonitions about the coronavirus catastrophe about to brought down on the country showed up in every article the corporate media put out, on the timelines of all the blue checkmarks, and in the public pronouncements of the legions of stern-faced labcoats. When protests and... Read More
From a recent SurveyUSA today nationwide poll, mean estimates of the percentage of police officers in America who are "bad cops" by selected respondent demographic characteristics: Overall, more than one in every four officers are perceived to be bad apples. That's striking. When the economic collapse comes, the country is done. Nobody trusts anyone or... Read More
The prolific Feryl: Using the GSS and ISCO 2008 allows us to compare the responses of police officers (n = 119) and the general public to the question of why blacks have "worse jobs, income, and housing" than whites do. The survey offers four potential explanations and respondents are not limited to choosing just one.... Read More
The second amendment's rhetorical kill shot, in pictures: The police can't--or more precisely, won't--even protect themselves or their stuff. Why the hell would you rely on them to protect you? If you're a husband and/or a father, it's a dereliction of your duty as provider and protector to outsource the physical safety of your family... Read More
Another small bridge connecting the races together was burned in the virtual world last week. A black guy I went to high school with, Brandon, wrote the following in response to the Charlotte shooting: The line about "the sins of your ancestors" is particularly remarkable because if whites ever lose the religiously-tinged sense of racism...

In several exchanges I've had over the last couple of weeks about the putative issue of black oppression by white society, specifically white police forces, it's inevitably argued that there is so much structural racism against blacks that just focusing on the expression of black frustration (ie, riots and looting) misses the point. It's like... Read More
Looking through FBI statistics, I came upon a table showing the number of federal law enforcement agents who had been assaulted by state in 2010. The top four, unsurprisingly, are Arizona, California, Texas, and New Mexico--the border states. Trying to stop unwanted people and paraphernalia from coming into the country is dangerous work.What does puzzle... Read More
The fact that Ron Paul blows the rest of the GOP presidential field out of the water when it comes to campaign contributions from military personnel is one that the Republican establishment can't profitably address. This isn't 1975. In 2012, US military personnel are among the most respected and honored people in the country. Consequently,... Read More
