It's an analogy designed to highlight why per-capital matters when discussing crime stats in a multi-ethnic society.

It's not a different topic, it's analogous to what we're discussing. Here's another analogy: If .05% of w ppl get sickle-cell and 3.5% of b ppl get sickle-cell, does it help b ppl to point out more w ppl get it as a total? It affects the b community more.

If 100 Italians lived in Iceland and 33% a violent felony conviction, what use does pointing out that native Icleanders committed more violent crime in total throughout the country's history other than to deflect from the problem the Italian-Icleandic community faces.

And I get it, in a way. You mold the definition of crime so you can claim that white ppl have more "crime" than black ppl. Same reason why you want to ignore per capita and only look at total stats.

You're just giving in to the modern trend to make words meaningless. When ppl talk about violent crime stats, it doesn't include deaths from war, justified or not. Changing the definition of crime to fit an opinion doesn't make your argument stronger, it makes it weaker.

Actual number of crimes only make sense when compared to the total population of a given group. It's meaningless w/out it.

Leo does not want to confront the fact that black ppl commit crimes much higher proportionally. It spears the narrative that all black ppl's problems are white ppl's fault.

No, b/c "more violent" only makes sense when adjusted for the total.

It is, but I'm not a fan. BIL is a big gamer, bought one and they hype one high-end component like GPU and cheap out on everything else.

I have a love hate relationship. My dad was in the computer business since there was a computer business. Our first Apple, a 2+ was bought in '84. But I loathe the hypocritical woke capital business model. Champion every stupidity in the West while ignoring slave labor in China.

When I eat at a restaurant, the joint has to pay the landlord. Shouldn't I also own the building? Throw in part ownership of the restaurant while I'm at it?

Haven't looked at them in awhile. Alienware is overpriced.

Yup. And the taxes, insurance, legal fees if a tenant stops paying, the cost of everything when a unit is vacant, etc. etc.

So this is why reads like 1980s Pravda lately. So much entitlement.
