That you are maybe a little late to the party. What do you think about it?

Has it been posted already on the forum? 

I tend to follow right-wing biased media and wanted to gain some other perspective here. Seems like black people are much more likely to commit murder

@Enlightenment Let me ask you a question - why do you think black people commit more crime than white people statistically speaking? Why would you be more likely to commit crime if you were a black man than if you were a white man? What conditions would exist around you that would make that more likely?

One perspective is because of socio economic reasons, racism, slavery in the past

Here we go again... 

Please statistics are not everything. Please don't give so much weightage to statistics. 

Sometimes these statistics are made up by right wing political parties to serve their political agendas. 

Does every black person commit a crime? 

See how these statistics work? 

 

 

 

A lot of American statistics are simply not true. Look beneath the ice and you will see a system rife with corruption.

Watch 14:00-20:00. If I find his videos where he addresses this statistic specifically I'll link it. Many of his videos can help give you an understanding, if you can bare through his edginess there are great points.

@Epikur you need to look deeper. 

 

I looked quite deep and most of the leftist pundits agree.

@Epikur  you have a very surface level opinion on things. 

You believe too much in media and statistics. 

I believe in looking behind the curtains.

Not only me. You can not convince people without taking statistics seriously.

@Epikur keep believing in statistics. It's just numbers on a piece of paper. 

Ground reality changes from year to year. 

The question is what's the veracity of these statistics. 

How can you prove statistics with full accuracy just on the basis of the source? 

Have you yourself conducted these statistics? 

Are the sources who create these statistics credible? 

What if the sources that produced those statistics are biased while creating them? 

Was there an error while collecting statistical data?

Was the sample too small? 

The answer to such questions is an "indefinite no."

 

So you can't be sure about statistics. 

Now I would believe a video over a number. 

Because a video is less likely to be tampered with if it's taken from multiple mobile phones or devices. 

A direct video is more credible source of information and evidence.

@Epikur okay, tell me why should  I believe a police officer whose word contradicts what's seen on a dashcam footage? 

Would the statistics coming out of such a department be believable?

Ok do you believe that most of the the leftist pundits are wrong? Even if that is their full time job? Even if they accept these numbers that are against their interests? Do you think you are more clever than them? People like Kyle Kulinsky, David Packman, Vaush.

@Epikur  I don't care about people on YouTube. YouTube is a big business.. 

Snow me a real video. 

Show me ground reality.. 

Prove yourself that these statistics are right. 

None till now has been able to prove it. 

Saying so and so talks about these statistics is no proof. 

Tomorrow I can start a YouTube channel and keep trumpeting the same statistics

Where is the proof?

Well to be honest I can not even proof to you that the earth is a globe. 

In this site even science is not taken always as proof because science works very good but it is not an absolute proof. 

In the end you make your research and come up with a decision. 

When I for example do math 100% of the time if I have a different answer to a math problem it's an error from my side not from the experts. 

If you think you are so much better than the experts I am ok with but if you want to convince others you might use statistics. 

I don't try to convince you btw.

Edtit: One thing more I mentioned the youtube guys because we can understand them and trust them somewhat.

They got their information from real experts with degrees. The info  is out in the open and it is not really contested by people with university professor degrees. 

You can google the research papers.

@Epikur  the thing is that a lot of people in the system could be biased from bottom to top. 

So I'm less likely to believe. 

 

Why would leftist social scientists be biased against their own interests?
