I am waiting for the Black Lives Matter organisation to condemn the murder of white farmers in South Africa by black gangsters covertly supported by the government there. It looks like it will be a LONG wait.
Skirt Cafe is an on-line community dedicated to exploring, promoting and advocating skirts and kilts as a fashion choice for men, formerly known as men in skirts. We do this in the context of men's fashion freedom --- an expansion of choices beyond those commonly available for men to include kilts, skirts and other garments. We recognize a diversity of styles our members feel comfortable wearing, and do not exclude any potential choices. Continuing dialog on gender is encouraged in the context of fashion freedom for men. See here for more details.
True. I wouldn't dream of saying to George Floyd's family that everybody dies because that would be cruel and insensitive, even though it is true. But, when people die, we don't normally go on massive protests, so the particulars don't relate to the entirety.

I am not sure that is statistically relevant, unless there are also figures to show that the proportion of blacks matches whites in a series of other parameters, e.g. convictions for violent offencers, prison population and so on. I suspect that's not the case. Here are some other statistics which suggest there is more to this than simple population proportions:Jim wrote: ↑Sat Jun 06, 2020 8:47 pmThe percentage of blacks killed by police in the US is disproportionate to their percentage of the population.
