    Yes, slavery begat poverty, and poverty is highly correlated to unlawfulness.

    It's far more nuanced then this, but you seem to require things be simple, so there you go. Hope that helped.

    If poverty is not a problem, what is?

    More importantly, what's the solution?

    Yes poverty increases violent crime rates.

    Which group of humans will statistically have higher crime rates? The group that has a median wealth of 170 grand or the group that has a median wealth of 17 grand?

    That drastic wealth gap was created from multiple centuries of systemic racism. So yes, systemic racism eventually lead to the wealth gap which then leads to different crime rates for each respective group.

    What do you not understand about this?

    So an incident of mass violence attributed to racism happens and @pgabriel rushes in to try and distract and make sure nobody is concerned with racism. It's like clockwork.

    Why is it when I point this out people ask me what the solution is? How the hell should I know? I do know no solution will come if we don't first recognize the problem

    I'm just wondering what your thoughts are. I ask because you seem to disagree with the site's Left-leaning posters when it comes to finding answers.

    You are Bobby Brown
    Don’t let Bel Biv Devoe tell you what to think

    It’s your prerogative and you do things on your own

    I think mass shooting are a big problem and so many people on SSRI's and lack of community is a huge problem.

    It seems like there is always a discussion of guns or how bad white people are when one of these happens but I don't remember some national discussion on how black people are violent when that black dude ran over 70 people in Wisconsin 6 months ago.

    I think there are productive things you can do to stop these sorts of things but the real solutions don't get any dicks hard so there is no national narrative on it.
