The reason for racial differences in per capita crime rates isn’t poverty. The leftist’s “poverty causes crime” argument sounds plausible at first.
by David Sims
The idea is that poor people, seeking food and the bare necessities of life, are forced to commit crimes in order to survive. Thus, the per capita crime rate among poor people should exhibit a strong correlation with socio-economic status, but no correlation at all with race. But I’ve checked, and there’s an even stronger correlation between crime and race than there is between crime and social class.
Poor Whites don’t behave as poor Blacks do. Each race has a characteristic statistical spread of behaviors. The conjecture that poverty causes crime is disproved by the evidence. It is a myth whose tellers hope to blame “social injustice” for racial differences. On the contrary: Blacks and Whites simply aren’t the same kind of creature.
The myth serves as the leftists’ road to political power, which is their true goal. The Marxists want to be able to dominate, and thus to exploit, everybody else. They want to supplant the natural elite, the elite of merit, with themselves — and to enforce their rule by murdering dissidents and by starving defiant populations into submission. All of their talk about social justice is mere hypocritical deception.
The sooner you deal with a problem, the easier the task will usually be. If Americans had recognized a fundamental racial difference between Whites and Blacks in 1995, or, even better, in 1950, or, better still, in 1850, and had dealt with it rationally, with a clear grasp of the facts, then their great-grandchildren would not be suffering from race-related crime and violence today, in 2020. Instead, they believed polite fictions about the equality of the races, and they believed them to the point of punishing anyone who did not believe them. People who told the truth were ostracized. They lost their jobs.
Similar things are going on in other countries — it’s as if the lunacy were being orchestrated by an international conspiracy. Which it is. The conspiracy is mostly a Jewish one. In a few countries, it has become illegal to tell the truth about race. Telling the truth has become a crime called “inciting racial hatred,” and people who tell the truth are arrested and bum-rushed through a show trial, in which the judge takes judicial notice that the truth must be false because the lies are legally required to be true. And then he sends the defendant to prison.
The law does not create virtue. At its best, the law reflects virtue. When the law is dirty, it doesn’t.
