    Yeh, blah blah. In the early 80’s my family was living on 2/3 or less than shown for blacks on your graph. And sending my brother and I to an excellent private school. Yes we all worked hard.

    You are quite wrong. The evidence of inequality is there. But you are blind to it.
    [​IMG]

    Moreover, the question of income inequality by colour also raises its ugly head in America. Go here: https://inequality.org/facts/racial-inequality/ - then scroll down to the graphic "The Racial Wealth Divide ..."

    You will note the following Income Inequality in the average Wealth chart by ethnicity:
    Whites - $146K
    Blacks - $3557
    Latino - $6591

    But people like you don't care to recognize it because you're fixated in a rabid attitude that ignores the actual facts. That is, you will not tolerate any factual evidence that is contrary to your petty political sentiments ...

    BTW, when they say that trump is a threat to the Constitution, they are saying he is an enemy of the country. We define ally and enemy according to those who pose a threat to our most cherished principles, which are summed up in the Bill of Rights, in our Constitution. Any threat to our Constitution is by definition an enemy. So when former Generals say trump is a threat to the Constitution, they are saying trump is the enemy of all Americans and America.

    The Constitution is what politicians and soldiers swear to protect with their lives.

    Many of the left's heroes are in fact criminals. For starters, there's Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Floyd and that New Jersey cop killer who took off to Cuba. Then theres' Che, Mao, Stalin, Castro, Chavez, and on and on.

    Yet another victory and you run away because you can't argue.

    See everybody this is how it's done this is how you force the left into their echo chamber. Simply doubting them makes them Fall to pieces.

    Bollocks!

    You prejudicial sentiments are clearly blocking you from the actual facts I have posted in this forum.

    The difference in Wealth (which is the ultimate distinction in terms of educational-level) between Whites and Blacks/Hispanics is phenomenal ...

    PS:I live in Europe. NOBODY is refused a post-secondary education because it is nearly free, gratis and for nothing. Paid for by high-taxation than in the US.

    I am wondering if he cannot be made to step-down.

    Which leaves us with a Presidential VP who less dorkish but nonetheless feckless.

    November can't come soon enough for America this year ....

    And you think Democrats would have some big problem with that??

    You know, sometimes things start seeming to slowly click together... strange little obscure connections are noticed...

    What do you think I've been fighting in the Abortion section for? I've asked this very same question there, in the abortion section, about if a baby gets shot and killed in the womb how that person should get punished, and the feedback from them is almost universally that the perpetrator should only be punished insofar as it is an assault on the woman, and taking away her choice. The baby itself is worth nothing, nada, zilch...

    You are referring to a Constitution that was created more than two-centuries ago when the country was very, very young.

    Life has changed and so have the necessities of a fair and honest existence that is nearly impossible for far too many of our people. Particularly the coloured who - as a people - have been around just as much as the white-families ...

    You are entitled to your opinion. I’m saying this as someone who actually went through this system.
    And Europe tends to have a lot more violent riots than the US. ;)

    So what?

    Wealth often comes from success. Success often comes from being smart. Since you like charts so much, why don't you post one showing IQ scores by race. I can assure you it won't be pretty.

    It says a lot about the racial/political division of the USA for Trump to be at 50% approval.
    Didn't he just say " George Floyd would be happy to see the low Black unemployment rate"? How tone deaf can a man be? Also, George Floyd is dead. Do you think he cares about employment numbers?
    These are dark days we're living in, folks.

    Blacks everywhere in the world are poor. Read the Bell Curve.

    Haven't you been watching the past week? I'll summarize for you in case you missed the chaos and destruction.

    This is just a guess, but I'd say Floyd cares about anything just as much as MLK does.

    SteveN, intelligence and IQ are not the same. Your IQ is a measurement of the intelligence trait that each and everyone has to a greater or lesser degree in comparison with others.
    IQ scores can be misleading. It is more accurate and informative to measure multiple types of intelligence.
    IQ measures cognitive ability compared to population at large. Intelligence is defined as general cognitive problem solving skills.
    Also, did you know that several White male serial killers had higher than average IQs?
    Something to think about.

    It was in the news and on YouTube. If they were lying, Trump would be talking about it.

    He did the same to me. So did Jake Starkey.

    I've been debating people here since 2008 and not once have I put someone on Ignore, even when they've flagrantly violated the TOS.

    We need to create a forum for people like that...

    Denial.
    Go read Trumps tweet yourself and look at the link under which he wrote that.
    His statement was taken out of context.

    COMPLETELY UNTRUE....
    you have had the UVVA (Unborn Victims of Violence Act) explained to you many times!.
    If someone harms another's fetus under that act they are punished and NO Democrat has said otherwise and NO Pro-Choicer has said that in the Abortion Forum...

    And "almost universally " is not only an oxymoron but totally untrue about how people feel about abortion...

    Or, ya know, we can just turn on the tv or go to social media and watch any of the countless hours of coverage showing the nation wide riots and the sea of people participating in them.

    All fair points that should be raised at trial; where justice actually takes place.

    Far left anarchists and ANTIFA have launched world wide attacks against the Democratic systems. Nothing new but they seem more coordinated now and they use racism as a cover to try and bring progressive change and to tear at the very fabric of society.

    they leave the argument because they know you're right.
    there are people I won't respond to but it's because they don't debate. But I've never put anyone on ignore. I don't need to if someone's not worth talking to I just won't.


    I think they need to stay on Twitter where Jack Dorsey will protect their precious feelings. and they can screech in their echo chamber and their mouths will be agape when they lose elections. and they'll ask everyone who they don't ignore how did this happen and they won't get any answers except for its the racists or the lizard people or the Illuminati.

    My thoughts has more power to them they can wallow in their ignorance.
