Much like anything in life affirmative action suffers from diminishing returns. It was pretty useful when black people were forced to drink from different water fountains and go on different buses; just the [cultural] landscape has changed (for the better) and thus affirmative action is, as you say, not all that useful (and we need to switch our focus to solving more specific issues - such as why black people are so much more likely to do jail time than whites etc.).

This becomes a problem for some extra reasons, too. Eventually (I hope), affirmative action won't be needed to impose equality, but who wants to be the politician to campaign taking it away once it's exhausted it's usefulness? Ouch.

...also, the op is a discussion of crime in Kansas City and Chicago pointing to race as the cause. What is "Bible" even doing in the title. Gimme a freakin' break.
The right answer to the wrong question is still the wrong answer to the real question.

I guess Missouri and Kansas might be considered part of the Bible Belt, but whatever.


But yeah, crime has ALWAYS been higher in poor neighborhoods, no matter the race, religion, politics, or whatever, that is the people in the neighborhood.
I am what I am.


What, you expected something deep or flashy?
