    Whig, with regard to racial crime, it’s a very complex story. Official statistics do show a far higher rate of black on white crime than white on black. But it’s the old story: it’s not corrected for class.

    There are plenty of other problems, such as the fact that the arrest statistics are wildly skewed. In drug usage, blacks are twice as likely to be arrested, even though their usage rates are comparable to those of whites.

    It’s a complicated enough story that it can’t be resolved simply. Passions run so high, and the level of understanding of crime statistics runs so low that these things generally turn into brawls. That’s why my approach is to look at the root of the growing tree– the threats made against Leonard Pitts– and aim my axe against the threats.

    Thank you Charles. I think I will stand pat. I agree that threats should be taken seriously, and I do believe they represent a veiled lynch mob mentality.

    In regards the prohibition of cannabis in particular, the purpose of this is to institutionalize racism.
