Okay, no one is saying you're a white supremacist. However, all these
statistics show me is that a greater proportion of blacks and hispanics than
whites find themselves in the underclass which commits most crimes (and
whose members are most easily caught and convicted). It would be interesting
to normalise the statistics for poverty.
Anyway, this is the beginning of the argument, not the end of it. What do we
do about social structures that contain such an underclass? What do we do
about its racial skewing? Also, there's an argument about what *can* we do
without violating rights, etc. Personally, I think we need to look very
carefully at how unqualified those "rights" are if this gives us pause.
