I am originally from Australia so perhaps I am a little out of the box when it comes to the above.
See I was raised not to see a person by the color of their skin but how they are as a person. I mean they may still be stupid but skin color did not reflect stupidity.
I was talking to someone the other day who happened to be a black guy. He stated that the media tend to skew figures to make the black man look bad. As he said, if he worked in an office with 10 white guys and he went mad and shot up the place that the stats would say 100% of black guys who work in offices will go mad and shot everyone.
If it was the white dude then it would be reported statistically that only 1% of white men do the exact same thing. Interestingly we then discuss the number of prison inmates and I personally feel there are probably more white guys in jail than black.
One interesting thing we talked about was….serial killers…..I mentioned that I couldn’t think of one black serial killer but when I thought of white I was…Ed Gein, Ted Bundy, Wayne Gacy, Aileen Wournos, Jeffrey Dahmer…..all white, all serial killers.
Do this mean that black guys are actually much safer to date as chances are they won’t turn out to be a serial killer? Do the media skew the stats to make black guys sound bad?
