Do you think all black people in prison went in there in their own will or..?

Honestly, this is what mean when you don't put common sense/logic into anything.

Do not tell me it's about class. Because black celebrities, rich black folk, and black folk that aren't like lower class, are still accused/arrested for "looking suspicious" (aka, being black).

No it doesn't.
Like, at all.
That literally makes 0 sense.


Typically people who go to prison commit a little thing called crimes, so in a way, yeah, its by their own will.

Also, there is a pretty big difference between being accused of "looking suspicious" and being shot. However, there are some prejudices which largely stem from experience which have unfortunately created an amount of bias in certain people's minds. Unfortunately theres not really much that can be done about this other than helping to improve upward economic mobility which I have been advocating for a while now.

Hm. Something just don't sit right with me here about the fact that black men being the majority of people in prisons, part of the 13% of black folk population too, then white people making less of the amount of black, hispanic, mexican, latino, even though they make up 73% of the US population.


Well, what the police do is shoot *cough* black *cough* people because they look suspicious.

There are two factors to look at regarding prison population; Who is committing the bulk of the violent, blue collar crime in the US AND who can afford the best lawyers to get them a reduced sentence?

As the majority of violent crime happens in poorer sections of large cities where gangs are more likely to be, the people living in these areas are predominantly Latino or Black. It therefore follows that not only will these people be more likely to enter the prison population as they're more likely to be arrested due to living in a crime infested area, but they also will likely not be able to afford a good lawyer that will help defend them.

They're also more likely to be wrongfully accused & still sent to jail, even if they're innocent.
And that goes with the not being able to afford good lawyers thing too.

You gotta admit though, white folk are often go off the hook with the crimes they do commit though.
Like shop lifting, and even using & selling marijuana in the states that where its illegal.

Police brutality is real, stop denying it. No one with morals would say he deserves to be shot because of drugs.

Man... you're quite the toxic little lass. Aren't you? You act like your a god and you ignore all that anyone has to say. Honey, pull your head out of your ass. The world is a bigger place than you think it is and right now your acting like a Southern Twat.

You brushed aside an entire argument, making your own without even finding out everything you said had already been contradicted. I suggest you learn how to argue properly before you actually start doing it.

Have a good day.

Saying this does nothing to help Zachary Hammond. You have successfully taken over this conversation.

the protests are more about how it happens more often to people of color, but any unethical killing should get attention regardless. white deaths get a lot less coverage, but looking at the data,

I can see why protesters would pay more attention to that.


The stats in that picture are off. You need to account for other factors such as percentage of each race, the outstanding warrants, crime rates by each race etc. Only looking at one variable (in which that does) will lead to a false report that wont be accepted anywhere. Try a .org/.gov/.edu site. Com sites are generally unusable in professional reports.


Yep, pretty much. Though it is a bit outdated, this gives a bit of insight into the actual stats.

Not talking about him anyway.
What I was talking about was a different issue than this.

Tell that to the person who wanted an outrage in the article then.

They made it one by mentioning it.

A good amount of users should take note of this actually, knowing their intentions in even arguing with me.
I'd actually greatly appreciate it actually.

Thanks for telling them to not waste their time on me. Since most peoples intention in arguing with me seems to just win another internet argument instead of having an actual discussion, often feeling personally offended in the process.

The fact that the #AllLivesMatter folks are quiet about #ZacharyHammond only proves its a slogan and poor attempt to stifle a movement.

#ZacharyHammond isn't going to get the outrage he deserves because it would force folks to admit their consistent defense of police is wrong

This is so true. People are total hypocrites to defend this person now after they having been defending police instead of countless other victims of police brutality
