Liberals and the regressive left spend a lot of time claiming that there is institutional racism out there, but can never actually present any evidence to back it up. Oh, they throw around a ton of claims and anecdotal evidence showing that blacks generally perform worse than whites, but they can never make the demonstrable link to racism, particularly institutional racism, as the cause.
The fact is, you can’t just claim that something is true, you have to prove it and you prove it by being able to demonstrate it through objective evidence and logical inference. Liberals have done neither but are so emotionally attached to the idea that this failure never dawns on them.
For a group that makes up 13% of the American population, and since this is overwhelmingly male, that number drops to about 6.5%, they certainly commit far, far more than their proportionate amount of crime, according to FBI crime statistics. But the liberals, instead of acknowledging this demonstrable fact, whine and cry because reality doesn’t make them feel good. They’re perfectly happy to throw the facts under the bus if it gets them emotional comfort. Sorry, that’s not how this works.
I have yet to see a single case of modern demonstrable institutional racism presented by the political left. Not one. Sure, they will pony up example after example of disparities between blacks and whites and claim this is because of institutional racism, but they can never actually draw the lines proving that it’s actually so. Saying “this is racism” doesn’t prove that this is racism. It takes more than that and they have nothing to show.
But they don’t care. When you point out their own failures, they get upset. They don’t step back and realize that their emperor has no clothes, they scream and cry and throw around insults, they never actually back up their claims with objective, demonstrable evidence. That’s because there is none. The fact is that blacks simply do commit more crimes, per capita, than other racial groups. This is both economic in nature and because of the “black culture” that poor blacks have insisted on adopting, that teaches them that the world owes them something. So long as blacks commit a disproportionate amount of the crime, they will represent a disproportionate percentage of the prison population and be executed a disproportionate amount of the time. Welcome to reality.
Blacks are poor at a disproportionate rate, but this is because they have a disproportionately high rate of making bad life decisions. They drop out of school at a disproportionate rate. They get involved in drugs and gangs at a disproportionate rate. They have children out of wedlock at a disproportionate rate. All of these things are directly linked to poverty. This isn’t racism, this is people making choices and paying the consequences of those choices. That’s not racism, that’s responsibility and we all know that responsibility is a dirty word for liberals.
Of course, the fact that they’re so laughably wrong won’t stop liberals because they don’t care about the facts, only the feels. They want their target demographics to feel good, whether they’ve done anything to earn it or not. They can’t actually blame their target demographics for anything, they can’t point out where people fail, because according to them, nobody can fail, at least unless you’re white and male, so it has to be someone else’s fault. That’s just not how reality works.
