    @Anonymous The events that precipitated high crime rates among the African American community are clear: The age of European conquest, colonialism, slavery, institutional racism – an especially incideous kind of racism that existed on many fronts and on many levels. As a country with a particularly racist past, we (the majorty) are primarily to blame for many of the ills that plague the African American community.

    Having said that, given overwhelming crime rates and statistics, it is completely logical for one to be suspicious of young black males. It sucks, but it is the world we (the majority) have created.

      @Anonymous Wait, by saying it’s the white man’s fault aren’t you perpetrating ‘the white man’s burden’ paradigm, the main problem in the first place? Nice attempt at being intellectual. Try again.

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous European powers beung at fault for the deterioration of the African american community, and the justification for this fault – the white man’s burden are two seperate things. Being at fault for something does not mean one is justified in doing it. You obviously have no understanding of the white man’s burden paradigm. Nice try at reading comprehension though, try again.

      2. Uh... says:

        @Uh... There was nothing in the original comment that even implied the paradigm of the White Man’s burden. I’m going to have to go with the initial poster on this one.

      @Father Zachary Hale Comstock I agree with everything except that first paragraph. It is my belief that the negro, much like the Irishman and the Chinaman, is simply constitutionally inclined to resist our noblest efforts to bring him out of his dark (see what I did there?) night of the soul and into a life of righteous prosperity. If our efforts do hurt the negro, then it is simply in order to be instructive. After all, he who spareth the rod spoileth the child. Important lessons can be learned through pain, but they must also be applied. Until the negro, the Chinaman, the Irishman, et al learn these lessons, they must be consigned to their subservient order. But when they do learn, then they shall take our place in the arms of the Lord.

        @ok Tom Buchanan don’t even jokingly say these things, it’s gross

        @Booker DeWitt This idiot priest needs to learn the difference between baptizing a man and drowning one.

      3. Honest Guy says:

        @Honest Guy While obviously untrue and unfair to Chinese and Irish people, the above statement is all too accurate regarding “the community”. Whether the problem is genetic or cultural in origin is less important than admitting that their subhuman savagery poses a direct threat to all civilized humans. Certainly it makes clear the overwhelming justifications for something like “stop and frisk”. It is long overdue for them to CLEAN UP THEIR ACT AS A RACE!

    @Anonymous What’s shocking to me is the eagerness of 21st-century Columbia students to make openly racist comments. Of course, it’s no secret that a disproportionate share of crimes in New York are committed by young black males. But if you conclude that it’s logical to be suspicious of all such people, how is this situation ever going to change? Have the courage to treat every individual with respect!

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous You cannot be equally suspicious of all people if a disproportionate number of crimes are committed by the same people. That is not racism. That is common sense. If Toyotas blow up at a disproportionate rate to other cars, I should not feel equally safe in a Toyota, nor should i treat all cars equally. That would be dumb.

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous That is racism. It is the very definition of racism.

    2. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous Actually, the most crimes in NYC are by white men and women working in the financial industry. They of course never go to jail. They don’t even have to admit wrong. But, of course we put the poor in jail for stealing from grocery stores and selling dope.

      @No crowns Most of the commenting racist garbage aren’t Columbia students.

    @Anonymous Human beings are not machines; your behavior toward them influences their feelings and motives. A young black male is not a Toyota.

      @Anonymous blaming the victim? it’s my fault i was assaulted?

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous We’re not discussing that. We’re discussing whether it’s fair or wise to be suspicious of all young black males. Some of us claim that it is, and that this is not a racist attitude. But like it or not, that’s exactly what racism is: judging people based on the color of their skin.

      2. lauren says:

        @lauren if you are white it is expected that you submit, then apologize afterwards. you should know you are in a university, left wing PC brainwash. i hope in spite you keep your self esteem. dont become white anti white.

        1. Anonymous says:

          @Anonymous Nonsense. Nothing I said above was anti-white. Are these comments really from Columbia students? It’s alarming to discover who we have in our midst.

    2. True says:

      @True …Toyotas occasionally work and are reliable.
