Let's act like 1 out of every 4 Black people ain't living in poverty and ignore the historical context.
And then let's ignore the fact that some Black communities have unemployment rates as high as 60%(when the unemployment rate hit 25% for Whites they called it "The Great Depression".. that's the status quo for some Black areas in 2015..no fancy terms)
Let's ignore the fact that Black men in this country are criminalized more than any other social group..and the way the justice system is built leads to high rates of recidivism due to less job opportunities for Black people with criminal records.
And then let's ignore the fact that the majority of Blacks (who like I said previously about 1 out of every 4 live in poverty) live in population dense areas, where murders are more likely to occur..especially in areas of concentrated poverty.
and then the pesky drug wars and all the sentencing biases for non violent drug related offenses..yeah let's just not even talk about that either
So yeah, if you ignore all of those things I guess Geraldo makes a great point keep up the great journalism.
