The US population is more-or-less evenly split between men and women yet 90% of those incarcerated are men, according to FBI crime statistics. Nearly 75% of NBA players are black while 97% of professional golfers are white. From these FACTS it is reasonable to conclude that men commit more crime than women, blacks are better at basketball than whites and whites are better at golf than blacks. This isn’t sexist or racist, these are observable FACTS reinforced by reality and observable in the world around us.
The lunacy of the Left argues that prisons and professional sports are inherently racist because their numbers fail to match the demographic distribution of men and women or blacks and whites in society. The Left doesn’t seek equal opportunity for all; they seek equal outcomes regardless of talents, choices and ambitions. The Left doesn’t seek the level playing field they claim, but instead a scheme to fix the game and dictate the score.
Asians SAT scores are the highest of any race, blacks the lowest. 27.9% of Blacks are on food stamps. 7.6% for Asians. Black unemployment is 9.7%. For Asians, 5.6%. As a group, Asians are better educated, more employable and less likely to be on welfare than are blacks. Again, FACTS. Because of this, a certain segment of the black community hates Asians because in spite of similar histories, obstacles and prejudice, their overwhelming accomplishments and successes are an embarrassment by comparison.
Asian achievement begs the question to the black community; we did it in one generation, why can’t you seem to do in 5?
Blacks kill each other at a rate 10 times higher than they die at the hands of the police.
Over 90% of black homicides are committed by black men. Black men are about 6% of the population yet they commit over 50% of all murders and robberies and represent over 5-times the prison population of whites. Unless you’re allergic to the truth, it is logical to conclude that black men are more violent and more likely to be criminals than their white counterparts. Even though black men make up only 6% of the US population, they represent about 32% of lethal encounters with police resulting in justifiable homicides. Being killed by a cop if you are black, is less likely than being struck by lightning. Oh again with those awful FACTS.
Those who find FACTS as racist are not thinking or rational enough to have an intelligent conversation. President Biden swerved into the actual truth of modern liberalism when he said in a speech: “we’ll take truth over facts.” The point of playing the race/sex/ card is not to encourage dialogue and consensus, but to censor and stop further discussion because on the facts, these arguments can’t be won.
When one finds FACTS as offensive, then the truth must be offensive as well. This way of thinking requires one to live in a world of lies. The many American’s who have failed themselves by clinging to ignorance while rejecting reality puts the future of the United States on a dangerous and self-destructive trajectory.
The United States of America isn’t made up of groups; she is made up from individuals. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are characteristics of people, individuals, each of us. We are all free to accomplish what our own qualities, possibilities and aspirations encourage us to pursue. These decisions come from within. Self actualization is a unique and wonderful gift to Americans, underwritten by a Constitution that guarantees our access to the possibilities as we see them for ourselves. Outcomes are not guaranteed but our ability to try is. Setbacks are certain, we learn from them. They make us stronger, more resolute, more determined and more grateful. Failure isn’t permanent or fatal; it is a part of a bigger and greater process as our lives go on and we build on our experiences.
Americans are a giving and generous people. We will help everyone who is striving as best they can to help themselves. What we do not do willingly is to suffer fools, the lazy or opportunists and the Left today is mostly made up from heavy doses of all three.
