If Yahoo Message Boards were the US, then the US is full of Racists.

It doesn’t really matter which board you go to, sooner or later you’ll get some a-hole posting one of the following:


I could be on a board about the joys of knitting, and one of these guys will post, without fail.

I feel obligated to say something. I am a firm believer in the following quote attributed to Edmund Burke:

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

If they are inclined to argue rather than insult me they’ll toss out a link like this one.

I say unto them:

Yea, now pull average education level and average salary per year for Hispanics, blacks and whites. I can already tell you what you'll find. Blacks and Hispanics on average will have lower average education than whites and lower average gross salary per year.

Here is another exercise for you. Pull the stats for all black men and woman that got at least a college education and are making at least 40K a year and compare their crime rates to that of the comparable white cohort. Do you know what you'll find?

You will find that the crime rates are similar.

Crime isn't spurred on by race, it is lack of education and lack of a good job to support oneself and one's family.

The difference between a law abiding citizen and a criminal is about nine meals.
