#2 All the bullshit aside, you gotta admit:

The cop was one helluva good shot.

Then let us solve this racial inequity and every Non-Black donation 2 knives to Black Teens.

Hummmm!
I wonder what the Murder stats would be
for BOB vs BOW, or BOP vs POB in 6 months?

#12 More on Grom's question, #3 - Newsome attended Oakland Mills High School in Columbia, Maryland. In 2003, she was named one of the "20 Coolest Girls in America" by YM magazine.

#16 I'll say once again, all this is cover for the failures in the Black community. Everything and everyone else is the blame but never themselves. Asians took full advantage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act only to be called 'white' for their success and actively discriminated by the Ivy League among others.

Just kids having fun...

#18 Grom, her getting a writeup in some cheap magazine suggests well-connected parents. I doubt she's ever missed a meal or worried for her own safety.

#20 #16 I'm not sure I agree, P2k. As I see it - there was an immense pressure on African Americans to excel educationally (that being modern criteria for intelligence/intellectualism).
Lets consider an example: George Floyd went to college, couldn't hack it, and started his downward slide. Suppose, instead, he'd went to a vocational-technical school?

Now (before I'm accused of racism) lets turn it around. Suppose the same (guilt-tripping) white majority decided that all Jews should be professional athletes, and exerted a pressure (similar to one applied to blacks) toward this end?

#22 Oakland Mills High School profile

The community is 55% white, 25% Black, and 7% Hispanic, according to Wikipedia:

Columbia began with the idea that a city could enhance its residents' quality of life. Creator and developer James W. Rouse saw the new community in terms of human values, rather than merely economics and engineering. Opened in 1967, Columbia was intended to not only eliminate the inconveniences of then-current subdivision design, but also eliminate racial, religious and class segregation.[6] Columbia has consistently ranked in the top 10 of CNN Money's Best Places to Live in the United States.[7] In 2020, Columbia was ranked as the 5th best place to live in the U.S.[8]

Almost half Black, almost half of the students getting free meals... but all the bells and whistles. Upper middle class tax payer base with a chunk of black and Hispanic kids from the ghetto bussed in because the planned apartment housing did not provide enough poor people. Ms Bree grew up in the neighbourhood, not the apartments or bussed in — she definitely has the look. Those pearly whites did not straighten themselves.

The pressure for college vs vo-tech has the same result for most students who come from poor backgrounds, g(r)omgoru. It isn’t a race thing, though there are those who like to pretend it is, but about economic class and preparation. Because of WWII, my mother had to do three years of high school classes in six months — so of course her math and science classes got short shrift, making it impossible for her to achieve her childhood dream of becoming a chemist like Marie Curie despite having originally been a child of educated professionals.

😊😊😊 Gracias, TW.

But that's exactly the point, TW. Why, despite all the opportunities showed their way, African-Americans made such a poor showing?

#25 Once he was on the scene, the Columbus cop had the choice of featuring in one of two headlines: "Racist Cop Kills Black Teen" or "Racist Cop Lets Black Teen Be Stabbed to Death". Lesson for aspiring police officers: Don't be on the scene. God made donut shops for a good reason.

Check the stats for out of wedlock births and crime in the community in say 1960 and now today. What happened since then? Those running government certainly didn't push any of this. In practice, just the opposite in many cases.

#28 Carriage before the horses, P2k. What are the root cause - could it be that IQ actually measures something real?

#29 It doesn’t need a society of geniuses to build a culture that is hardworking, law abiding, and safe, g(r)omgoru. Even prosperity only requires consistently spending less than one earns. It’s all common sense, which tends to thin out in the higher reaches of IQ, in my experience.
