"Blacks represent 13% of the population but commit 50% of the murders; 90% of black victims are murdered by other blacks," writes Time's Joe Klein, calling for "provocative" thinking on race in America. "The facts suggest that history is not enough to explain this social disaster."
Yet the disturbing truth, according to the FBI's most recent homicide statistics, is that the United States is in the wake of an epidemic of white-on-white crime. Back in 2011, the most recent year for which data is available, a staggering 83 percent of white murder victims were killed by fellow Caucasians.
This is not to say that white people are inherently prone to violence. Most whites, obviously, manage to get through life without murdering anyone. And there are many countries full of white people — Norway, Iceland, France, Denmark, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom — where white people murder each other at a much lower rate than you see here in the United States.
On the other hand, although people often see criminal behavior as a symptom of poverty, the quantity of murder committed by white people specifically in the United States casts some doubt on this. Per capita GDP is considerably higher here than in France — and the white population in America is considerably richer than the national average — and yet we have more white murderers.
...being able to get a job because of who their parents are, I just have a problem with the amount they are being paid. They should all start slowly then work their way up. They've got a job because who their parents are, now damn it...earn those big salaries.
Everything! I love the Christmas Carols (Nat Cole and Johnny Mathis) I love the winter snow, The gift giving, wrapping presents. I love the Christmas parties, I love the Christmas movie and cartoons and I love the Lord Jesus and right now I'm missing my beloved Mother that made Christmas so special for our family. Also, my dad who is now in home hospice....and that makes me feel like crying because a lot of my family is gone. Yet I still look forward to CHRISTMAS!!!!
just as Rachel showed on her show. Only MSNBC showed it and CNN. FOX was showing something all together different...even though they showed some of the video, BUT they were doing all the talking. Check out the video...
