This is a normal post Honestly I doubt my sanity posting that
...but the crime problems being highlighted (victim OR perpetrator) are because of deprivation and lack of opportunity ... not of race.

It just so happens that due to social ills and long-standing inequalities in the US (and UK) that non-whites are more likely to be born into deprivation and poverty.

This is a normal post There are tomes written on that.
The claimed solutions for the social ills have only seemed to worsen the problem.

This is a normal post so just shrug your shoulders and keep up the arms race.

This is a normal post You can mock, but I am active in my community and have worked in government to attempt to change it.
I harbor no illusion that my efforts are small, but I keep working at it.

This is a normal post Well good luck to you,
I don't want to disparage your efforts and I think we in the UK lead relatively sheltered lives and don't really appreciate the sort of fear you encounter every day, nevertheless I don't think "more guns" is the answer to any of these problems.

As your lot say, "guns don't kill people, people do," well, that's true, they kill people WITH guns though, but I suppose ultimately it's poverty and broken society that kills people.

This is a normal post Well thats because the solutions always come from outside the affected communities
If "Da Man" has fucked you over your entire life why would you listen to "Da Man" when he says he has a solution to "your" problem

This is a normal post I tell you what they should do,
the next time they just print a shedload of money to give to the banks for being rubbish banks, they should just give it to poor people instead. They want more consumer spending, don't they?

This is a normal post But you're not allowed to help them out of it,
because that would be COMMUNISM.
