    I think the only way around it would be to stick to verifiable facts and statistics and disregard opinions and PC. That of course would involve some unpalatable truths and it’s not something you could state on western based servers. In the end, despite what we think and all the talk of 'free speech', we’re stuck at the stage of everyone is equal and everything is everybody else’s fault. So we never do get to the bottom of it all and have to read from the media based script.

    The primary reason is the breakdown of the family unit. Too many boys growing up with no Father in the home. No positive male role model in their like. It's not any more complicated than that.

    racism is a social construct...a racist is someone who adheres to that social construct. most people don't question that construct, they simply apply the teachings and consequences to their every day existence. secure in the knowledge that they, them and those people deserve just what they are getting. the hardest part is getting the person to acknowledge the social construct of racism. because then they would have to begin the process of examining all other social constructs. in my opinion about 20 percent of all crime is intent on bodily harm and property...the remaining portion is about poverty...at the core lies a failed social cognitive construct that as a people, we see as a nightmare, for which we continuously try to awaken from...their have been those whose voices were heard, benjamin lay, elizabeth freeman, william lloyd garrison, sojourner truth, frederick douglass, ghadi, martin luther king , malcolm x...they all where saying the same thing...the problem is the social construct itself and those who continue to benefit it... it is here where i think the larger conversations should begin...
