I found this quick 2 minute video on Youtube the other day. Kind of short and to the point, I guess. It starts of by showing the crime rates for all the different races, which is pretty shocking in itself. I would have guessed the violent crime rate for African-Americans would be about the same as the White-American and Hispanic-American rates, but the violent crime rate for African-Americans is actually more than twice as high as the violent crime rate for Hispanic-Americans. The video then presents the education and income levels for various races, which shows that African-Americans are more educated and have higher incomes than Hispanic-Americans. To me this raises the question, as the video's producer intended, if Hispanic-Americans are less educated and have lower incomes than African-Americans, shouldn't Hispanic-Americans have a higher violent crime rate than African-Americans? The video also questions the effects of the MAOA "Warrior" Gene. I found that aspect interesting, but the genetic research seems limited.

I used to think that better education and higher incomes would have a strong effect on crime, but after seeing this data, I just don't know. I'm interested in seeing what people in the Destee community think about the questions raised in the video.

In the Spirit of Sankofa,



... First, welcome to the Family, and please enjoy your stay. Secondly, the Hispanic community doesn't have the problem of self-hate to overcome as we do, in fact, they love themselves and deal accordingly with outsiders; we are just the opposite. And thirdly, there was no need for me to watch the video, you did a good job explaining it; however, most of us here are well aware of high percentages of black incarceration over all other groups of people.

In addition, Melissa Harris-Perry, of MSNBC had an excellent show this morning on this same topic. If you get a chance, check it out.


Peace In,

MimiBelle ... really ... lower class of troll ... ??? ... you're way out of order.

If you think a rule has been broken, report the post ... don't attack and call folk outta their name.

If you have nothing to add to the specific topic ... no more than violations ... don't say nuth'n.

If you don't like this Member, or what they are saying, put them on ignore.

This is a warning.

:heart:

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
