Hi noj,

Both of those black professors grew up in poor conditions in the time of segregation. One was adopted by an aunt and the other raised by a single mother. They have written many books on the cultural conditions of modern black Social history. They are considered experts on the subject.
If they and the other commentators I mentioned, are not qualified to understand the black community, I wonder who you think is? It's social history and community relations, not quantum physics.
The homicide figures I quoted were from official FBI crime stats. Not sure how easily they could be manipulated. Not sure why you seem determined to dismiss the credibility of the above experts?

BB.

The danger of trying to ensure nobody gets something they donít deserve is that some will lose out because of systematic flaws and false assumptions. When you wrote about it being Wayneís mother who brought him up I almost replied that that was a bit of stereotype, even though I automatically assumed it was his mother as well.

I was wrong and Iím glad I didnít post that as I would have just looked even more sanctimonious.

Scozza, when I said 'taking the piss', I meant your 'milking it'.

I find the arguments for universal basic income quite persuasive. A 'rich' economy like the UK should be able to give everyone enough to survive on, no matter what their motivation is. Categorising folk according to their worthiness for help is a recipe for disaster.

Hi Jon,

So I was right about the trolling then. No considered opinion just the usual boring insults.
I'll just go back to ignoring you as usual.

Hi Jon,

I donít think itís a case of taking the piss, itís what we do to address the issues that will make all the difference. The easiest thing is to say there is not a problem , when clearly there is. Itís about filtering out the people,who really need the support and people who are milking it for me

Dear BB,

I wholeheartedly refute your somewhat slanderous accusations.

While it may seem apposite to reflect upon the impact the variety of measures implemented by both Democrat and Republican administrations have had on the circumstances and wellbeing of inner-city black communities in the United States, and to opine on the relevance and importance of a range of social factors on the ability or otherwise of young blacks to make a successful life for themselves may be tempting, I would like to remind you of the occasional situation which may arise upon one overlooking a half-used bucket of previously prepared particles, and leaving said receptacle forgotten and neglected for weeks on end, which when opened presents a scum-covered surface with the watery liquid below being grey in colour, with flecks of putrid solid matter and an overwhelming stench which can only be likened to childrenís vomit, left in a car on a hot dayÖ

Thatís your aftershave, that is. You splash it all over.

Jon

With all due respect to whoever those professors are BB, I doubt they know much about financial hardship or illegal means of earning being the only avenue that will feed your family without welfare handouts.
As we know from Covid reporting worldwide, figures are easily manipulated, misunderstood or misreported

Wow Jon,

Respect your honesty mate. I think religion could be a way, something to believe in but the corruption does raise concerns.

This is what the government needs to be looking at, our people, and where we go next.

Scozza, as I said a few (hundred) posts ago, some people will take the piss whatever. Rise above it, let them get on with it and continue to do the right thing. If 0.001 percent of your tax goes to fund some idle bugger so what, would you really change places with them?

Re the problems of blacks in America. I don't pretend to know what the answer is, but feel blaming blacks in America probably isn't.

Praise your parents for everything what is right and blame them for everything that is wrong (old psychology saying). Sounds like you mother brought you up well mate. Be proud, very proud
