1) I haven't been angry, just defending my position. It's hard to get tones across through text without throwing a bunch of lol's and emoticons thrown around, but be assured that I haven't been angry about this. I am just defending my positions while being told by several people that they're wrong without them providing any evidence or reasoning, just "you're a shitlord" and "you don't provide any sources, which none of us have, either."

2) >>#60 >>#66 both accused me of blaming race, and >>#28 , which was what I originally responded to, was saying how race wasn't the cause, too. So I was separating my position from accusations and others' positions.
And I see the utter lack of correlation between poverty and crime rates, but stronger correlations between non-nuclear families and crime rates to agree with my argument that it's the community/culture you're raised in that has to do with crime, not poverty. Those communities/cultures having an affect on crime would also, logically, have an affect on wealth. Thus my point that poverty doesn't cause violence, but bad environments cause violence and poverty. If poverty was the start of the chain, there would be a correlation between poverty and crime.

3) The communities/cultures may have started from racism generations ago, but it's not being continued because of racism, because there really isn't enough racism to continue that anymore. It's being continued by toxic lifestyles and choices being promoted in many of those areas, which is the main problem now. I'm interested in breaking the cycle and fixing the problems, rather than focusing on what started it. The way that people in those communities can become more productive/successful/less violent is if they get out of those counterproductive/toxic communities/cultures and work hard in society. Telling those people in those areas that there's some entity/agency out there that'll keep them down no matter how they try (some systematic racism, for example) takes away their reasons to try to escape and perpetuates the problems. Why would anyone try if they believed there was no hope?

And to reiterate for clarity, I have been defensive (not angry) because of the polarized responses this thread have gotten for me simply wanting to get to the root of the problem. The closest I got to being angry with you was at the end of >>#96 when you put words in my mouth. That's one of the biggest things I hate in life.

1) Culture is the result of societal behavior? Really? And there are large sections of society that are acting violently? Wow, it's almost like it's a bad part of society... a bad culture... that's the problem. Wait, no, that's exactly what I was saying, so clearly you were wrong since you think I was wrong.

2) My counter-arguments may have come from personal stories, but it's a hell of a lot more than others provided. Where is your evidence that poverty causes the crimes and that being born into violent/poverty-stricken areas has nothing to do with tendencies towards poverty/violence? Because that's what you're saying.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVBJ5m3sGfk&ab_channel=StefanMolyneux Go to 12:55, 13:30, 14:00, 15:00, 15:45, 17:40, 18:20, 18:45, 19:35, to see poverty and ethnicity correlations (or lack there of) to crime in graphs.
Go to 28:50 29:40, 30:45, 31:00, to see the correlations between non-nuclear families and crime rates. Wow, it's almost like having communities and families being raised in worse conditions have more of a correlation to violence than poverty or race. But wait, I just provided a source whose sources are available in the description that agrees with what I said... I guess that means every one of those graphs and every one of those sources were skewed because I'm wrong for not thinking violence is caused by poverty and race.

3) What's more is you act like Hitler is a god and that you were Mussolini's grandson. Wait, no, you never did that. Just like I never acted like those communities and cultures sprang out of nowhere and are only "continued by assholes who were stupid enough to follow it." You were just putting words in my mouth. Good job.

1. I don't think you get what I was saying, you just want to be angry. See argument 3, and maybe calm down? It's an argument on the internet that I don't think you want to back down from, so maybe stop acting like it's a fight to the death. Get over yourself.
2. That is indeed interesting, thanks for that! Also, I just want to clarify something you've been repeating for I don't know what reason, but I don't think anybody here is saying race has to do with this. You say culture, I say behaviour explained by poverty and lack of education, no one says race, please get that idea out of your head. Anyway, this video doesn't really discredit anything I've said. It would've been interesting to see a link between poverty and those factors that make non-nuclear families. But besides that, nothing we didn't know already.
3.So you're admitting this behaviour came from somewhere, maybe a place of frustration...like poverty...or a lack of education due to the fact that yes, your family doesn't hold it in high regards, probably because they didn't have access to it because of systemic racism in their time, or because their parents didn't have access to it because of blatant racism in their time (in the case of black people in particular, I admit). I'm not saying that there isn't a bad influence around them causing them to do bad things, I'm saying that this bad influence has its reasons and origins and so you can't put all the blame on the people within what you like to call this ''culture''. It takes time to undo shit from the past. People absolutely can break out of the shit situation they've lived in all their life because their parents lived in it all their lives and so on, but it's not without its fair share of challenges (which is another story entirely).

So basically, we're kinda saying the same thing. We're just calling it different things and focusing on different things (you, the current situation; me, why it got to that). This is pointless, you're needlessly angry and sarcastic for some reason (what's up with that, dude? C'mon no one needs more of that in the world, much less on FJ the hate-loving site) and I have a 40% midterm to study for. That means I'm done here. Have a good day, I very sincerely mean that (nobody says that enough on this site, waddup with that) Have a cool picture/potential background pic. It's the cover of a really great E.P. by H.A. Sedda, if you like that kinda stuff

African descent, not african nationality.

Canada's, the US's, Englands, countries with access to many sports where blacks are minorities, their olympic runners are still black

#99 - anon (10/19/2015) [-]
Africans are naturally selected to be tall and skinny due to the hot climate (google Allen/Bergman principles). This is the reason Africans (and those of African descent) on average tend to be taller with long, skinny legs, making them ideal runners.
Its simply a statistics game within a little bit of anthropological knowledge... Being black doesn't make you inherently fast, one isn't really the cause of the other

Just graduated (well, graduated in June) Started with 3 guys and about 24 girls in my class, ended with just me and about 18 girls. Like every professor made a joke about me being the only guy in the class for 3 years.

I also had a teacher that was really really insistent that men are responsible for all child abuse and that we had to be suspicious of any male adult that interacted with our students.... She regularly forgot I was in the class and shot me the dirtiest looks whenever one of my classmates poked holes at her theories, like I was to blame. It was the weirdest shit I ever had to deal with at college and we made jokes about her all the way to graduation.

On the plus side, like every CT I ever worked with and most of my professors told me that I'm like 10 times more employable solely because I'm a tall guy in a city school, so we have that going for us!
