Do you have a general citation for your claim that factory employers were hiring minorites preferentially during The Great Migration?

It doesn’t, I think, show up like that in the behavioral genetics work on crime. Of course, prenatal environment is a confounder, and adopting parents aren’t representative of all SES. If you’re a very poor weirdo with a rap sheet who doesn’t blink, you’ll have trouble adopting.

When we use the word privilege, perhaps it should be more clearly defined that there are laws that affect some differently than it affects others.

There is very little good faith anymore. As someone who identifies as independent, if not possibly libertarian democrat or bleeding heart libertarian (I believe that power corrupts whether its the government, corporations or oligarchs, and that the organization matters less than ever), I find it so difficult to have a discussion with people of either party in good faith anymore. I have been drawn to libertarian sites because the majority of the discussion is intelligent and respectful, and intending to find compromise and solutions, rather than just insult, bicker and refuse to acknowledge fallacy in our beliefs or assumed truths.

To me it seems more forward looking and therefore rectifiable.

As Ryan confirms (and I live in Texas so I know of what he speaks), hiring most of the time is a face-fitting exercise (“will this guy or gal fit in”, hence the subtle attempts to skirt the legality of personal questioning before and after formal interviews.

Now that’s what I call a religion…(Google “Allen TX football stadium”)

It’s worth asking whether (and to what degree) race is a factor after you control for those other factors. If the root cause is racism then presumably we need one set of tools. If the root cause is something else then singling out a few encounters with the police out of tens of Billions to fit a narrative is wasting time.

We could spend decades trying to reform the justice system and failing to see any results when the root issue might be as simple as lead paint or preschool.
