Still away from home so I’ll just pop something up that might be of interest to some. Ever noticed that the idea of “racial profiling” is just always assumed to be automatically wrong? It could be, depending on circumstances; but other times, perhaps not so much. Moreover, what’s often charged as racial profiling isn’t that at all. In other cases, perhaps the most common, it’s merely one single part of a far wider and integrated profile.
Here, Stefan Molyneux explains all the elements for those who care about facts, reason and dealing with things honestly, The Truth About Racial Profiling: George Zimmerman vs. Trayvon Martin.
He also went on Peter Schiff’s show, Media Bias, Racial Profiling and Zimmerman.
The previous video of Stefan’s that’s referred to in the podcast, The Truth About George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, was at 600,000 views at the time of their recording a few days ago and is now approaching 800,000 views, and with a 10-to-1 like to dislike ratio.
I never paid much attention to this whole deal until the verdict. Now that I have, I am astounded at the verifiable facts so-called reputable media have never, ever reported on. And I’m pretty cynical to begin with.
An afterthought: The danger of fists. People have a uniformly false view—thanks to Hollywood—of hand-or-fist to face contact by someone who knows even a little bit about what they’re doing. And I won’t even get started on head buts and elbow punches.
On a different section of the Uniform Crime Report we see that bare hands and feet have been responsible for the death of 4,028 people since 2007. To give you some idea of scale, that makes fists and feet a more popular instrument of lethal criminal violence than rifles and shotguns combined over the same period of time.
Read it & weep, morons, ignoramuses and the generally dishonest.
