    The human race in general is predisposed to violence. Social and parental influence drive that out of us during our formative years. Some cultures, however, encourage violence. The problem is hardly racial in in its fundamental nature, although racial tension, white guilt, and mainstream black culture greatly exacerbate that problem.
    True, but that's partially because juries are more inclined to hand a death sentence to a minority defendant than they are to a white defendant for the same crime. It's the same story with gender. Men are more likely to get the death penalty than women for the same offense.
    The violent crime comes from drug prohibition. Laws prohibiting drug manufacturing, trafficking, dealing, and consumption are (in this country) are usually written by upper-class white people.

    This shit really bugs me. I know I one of the few here that doesn't view the judge's words as a harsh truths, but then again, I have a very different perspective on race. I grew up in the suburbs and most of the black people I grew up around were assimilated while still being distinctly black. There weren't any real race issues in the schools I went to. The problems that my peers had with each other were over normal teenage bullshit (pride, machismo, etc.). Other than that, people generally got along. That's why I think it's retarded when people assert that people's behavior is somehow dictated by the color of their skin instead of by the culture they grow up in. I've seen white people that might as well have been black ghetto trash stereotypes.

    Regardless of statistical analysis, having now been tainted with the charge of racial bias all of Judge Jones' prior rulings will fall under suspicion of discrimination, eventually leading to calls for justice and retrials. This is why we must place misguided feelings aside and address the ongoing cultural problems of certain elements of our society.

    You don't think it's more likely for black people to grow up in the sort of culture that leads them into a violent/criminal lifestyle?

    Any race that embraces 'thug culture' is doomed to a violent end.

    Look at the failure of alcohol prohibition and the violence it caused amongst whites.

    Only by virtue of the fact that so many of them tend to live in the inner city. That in and of itself is a cultural trait.

    Subcultures like oi punk and skinhead movements and places like Southie in Boston trailer parks in the South have both long been hubs of anti-intellectual, anti-education, pro-street violence thought among whites.

    On a side note, if anyone thinks that just black and Hispanic criminals are savages, I suggest that you read up on The Manson Family and Ed Gein.
