Ku Klux Kops: Statistical Morality Again – Cobb Yes, but what about the people who are black Americans who are neither arrested, nor shot? In this case, the entire fiction is that race is the proximate cause for all these matters and that the race of black Americans has a problem. Sure, if you find those who arrested and shot and young and black and male and numbering about 500 deaths per year to be representative of black America. The contradiction makes itself patently obvious when it is argued, in support of the rhetorical call that ‘Black Lives Matter’, that ‘black on black crime’ cannot be considered in the same context. There is no such thing as ‘black on black crime’, which is not some denial of the racial identity of perpetrators and victims, but a firm assertion that outside of those immediately responsible, this is not a satisfactory representation of black America. And of course it is not. Black America is not under threat from ‘black on black crime’. But they are even less under threat from ‘white racist cops’.
After the Republic This arbitrary power, whose rabid guard-dog growls and barks: “Racist! Sexist! Homophobic!” has transformed our lives by removing restraints on government. The American Bar Association’s new professional guidelines expose lawyers to penalties for insufficient political correctness. Performing abortions or at least training to perform them may be imposed as a requirement for licensing doctors, nurses, and hospitals that offer services to the general public.
