This video shows a calm, well thought out take on how raw data and statistics can show the true nature of many problems we face as a society. It also give insight as to how the media and certain politicians with an agenda can manipulate the "truth" especially with regard to violent crime and firearms. When talking about such things it easy to loose the audience but this vid is only a little over 6 minutes long. I hope this guy does more of this sort of thing.
This guy is a brilliant communicator.
I hope he becomes a national figure, he needs to be on TV with his own short segments.
The recent reminder about Tawana Brawley and other cases of false charges against white men coupled with how liberals in general claim that the charges though false.. nevertheless represent the nature of white men's treatment of black women in this country.
Criminal Victimization in the United States, [YYYY] Statistical Tables
Table 42: "Percent distribution of single-offender victimizations, by type of crime, race of victim, and perceived race of offender"
|Year of Stats||Total
|Race of Victims||% White
|44,890||Black||13.5 *||80.2||6.3 *|
|43,890||Black||0.0 *||93.7||6.3 *|
|47,430||Black||7.2 *||68.9||23.9 *|
|67,890||Black||0.0 *||79.3||20.7 *|
The black victim - white offender numbers are surprising but that is what I found in the series of Criminal Victimization in the United States, [YYYY] Statistical Tables available for the years 1995-2008.
There must be stats for the years after 2008 (and before 1995) but I could not find anymore stats in this series. I'll look for the tables mentioned in the video.
That is the government stats where they don’t break out “non-Hispanic” white, or include Asians.
If they put this into the usual racial categories that the media uses, it would even look much, much, much, uglier.
This is why I posted the link here, from the stand point of communicating in an effective, easy to listen to, easy to understand manner it’s nearly perfect IMO. People will not take the time to read in depth analysis no matter how worthy or well written it is unless they have a vested interest in the subject. Those who are on the fence and need to be reached don’t have to work too hard to see some very important points. As I said I hope he does more.
This guy knows people, and knows how to give them information.
Something that is lacking among most republicans.
2nd Amendment Bump.
The speaker waxes eloquent about how inexplicable" it is that people are talking about Newtown but not about dropping crime statistics. Is he just playing dumb for his low information listeners, or does he actually not know that journalism is a united front spewing desperate ills are by desperate measures cured propaganda?
For the choir it is never hard to find those who are willing to preach to you. But when trying to influence those who are not choir members on either side of this issue messages that are not “preachy” and shrill undoubtedly work best when given the chance.
As one who is firmly and irrevocably on the Pro 2nd Amendment side of this/these issues what I appreciate about the delivery this guy uses is that it leads the viewer through a logical thought process that allows them to arrive at conclusions without feeling it was forced on them.
When the facts are on your side all you have to do is effectively communicate them and more often than not, sane, logical people will reach the right conclusions. When they are not you have to get loud and emotional and deal in hyperbole. Of course having 95% of the main stream media on your side helps too.
Admittedly countering the constant bombardment from the left by the MSM is a tall order. But having witnessed someone achieve enlightenment when given the facts and not asked to believe something simply because I do, I can say it’s a worthy cause.
