|The white man's laws are nothing more than a repressive blow against the free-spirit of the liberated black individual|
A study from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee looked at that state's incarceration rates and found they were the highest in the country for black men.
The University of Wisconsin researchers say their analysis was truly eye-opening. They found that Wisconsin's incarceration rate for black men — 13 percent — was nearly double the country's rate.
"We were so far above everybody else. That just sort of stunned us when we saw that," says Professor John Pawasarat, who studied two decades of Wisconsin's prison and employment data.
Wisconsin prison officials refused to talk to NPR for this story. But John Chisholm, Milwaukee County District Attorney, has argued for modifying the state's mandatory minimum sentencing policies. He says crimes and prosecutions have dropped dramatically since 2010. Chisolm also says that it's too simple to suggest that Wisconsin's incarceration rate for African-American men is the nation's highest because blacks commit more crimes.No, John Chisholm, it really is that simple.
Haven't you read the Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission report, put out each year since 2005? It helps illustrate this simple, albeit uncomfortable truth, which serves as another reminder the thesis of the Kerner Commission Report is 100 percent wrong.
But then again, it must be 'racist', Confederate-flag toting, goose-stepping whites (wearing KKK-robes) hunting down blacks like elk from Madison to Green Bay and back to Milwaukee, right? [HOMICIDE RATE FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS IN WISCONSIN ALMOST FIVE TIMES NATIONAL RATE, Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR.org), 1-31-2012]:
The homicide rate for African Americans in Wisconsin is almost five times the national rate. A new report using FBI statistics ranks Wisconsin in the top ten for the percentage of black murder victims. The figures are from 2009. Of the 146 murders in the state that year 79 of the victims were black and most of them 66 were young black men. Most 60 percent knew their killer.Emergency health care technology, another gift of the white man to prolong what passes as life for the black individual in the black community.
Josh Sugarman heads the Washington, D.C. based Violence Policy Center that produced the report crunched the numbers and produced the ranking. He says gun control laws are the key to reducing the number of young black man being shot, "The state with the lowest gun death rates over all have far more comprehensive gun control laws, lower rates of gun ownership compared to states that have more lax or non-existent gun control laws and higher rates of gun ownership."
But Madison Police Chief Noble Wray says limiting access to guns is only part of the solution. He says young black men have become disillusioned with the criminal justice system and too many are involved in a violent subculture where guns are seen as the ultimate equalizer, "In the subculture is that opposed to getting into a confrontation and harming you I want to do the ultimate and we've got to move away from that and that is something that has to be addressed in a personal responsibility with African American males because they are killing each other."
Wray says his department is trying to do that through gang intervention techniques.
He says the only good news is that the homicide rate is lower than it could be, thanks to advances in emergency health care technology that now saves many gunshot victims who would have died in the past.
Talk about an oppressive people...
Young black men, old black men, and even older black men are all disillusioned with the criminal justice system of the white man, because the white man created standards governing proper behavior in civilization that few black men (of any age) can maintain.
Ideas and notions such as personal responsibility and accountability for the black individual are provided cover by the thesis of the Kerner Commission Report, which clearly indicated that black pathologies/black dysfunction is clearly the fault of ubiquitous white racism.
This finding provided all blacks a proverbial umbrella to deflect the deluge of dysfunction from their community, though it can't drain the waters of racial reality that are on the verge of drowning this same community.
But 'white racism' is still to blame...
Remember your Introduction to History and Moral Philosophy lesson from Starship Troopers:
“These juvenile criminals hit a low level. Born with only the instinct for survival, the highest morality they achieved was a shaky loyalty to a peer group, a street gang. But the do-gooders attempted to ‘appeal to their better natures,’ to ‘reach them,’ to ‘spark their moral sense.’ Tosh! They had no ‘better natures’; experience taught them that what they were doing was the way to survive. The puppy never got his spanking; therefore what he did with pleasure and success must be ‘moral.’
“The basis of all morality is duty, a concept with the same relation to group that self-interest has to individual. Nobody preached duty to these kids in a way they could understand — that is, with a spanking. But the society they were in told them endlessly about their ‘rights.’
“The results should have been predictable, since a human being has no natural rights of any nature. …Black America was liberated from all fault with the ruling of the Kerner Commission Report; as we see in a state where only six percent of the population is black, it is the rights of this pitiable minority that white do-gooders worry themselves to death about at night; meanwhile, clear-thinking whites in cities such as Milwaukee worry themselves to death at night about being the victim of a black home invasion or seeing their property (and life savings) evaporate because of the deleterious effects of a black neighborhood to property value.
The end-results of this experiment should be quite obvious by now.
