App That Would Guide Users Away From High-Crime Areas Proves Controversial
Read the article
This is getting push-back from the NAACP.
I find this interesting. What are they saying? High crime areas are only in black communities?
Does anyone really believe that is true?
I think it is clear that crime rates are higher in inner cities. It is also typical that there are a higher proportion of minorities in the inner city. But is it a given that the minority-heavy areas are the only high crime areas?
Or, is it true? Does the leadership of the NAACP believe that it is a general rule that minority communities have a higher crime rate?
If this is so, what are they doing about it? Why don't they "lead" and try to get the people they purport to represent out of this?
I think if there is one truism, it is that not all minorities want to live in a crime ridden area. By and large, most people regardless of race, nationality, culture, etc want the same thing. They want to raise their kids in a safe clean environment. They want to have a job and provide for their family. They want their kids to do better than they do.
There are obviously people in the minority community that do not want this. Guess what - there are whites that feel the same way. Dead beats, criminals, those who want entitlements come in all colors.
So, why does the NAACP pull the race card whenever something like this comes out? Race is not mentioned in any way, shape, or form here. As a matter of fact, this app will likely be used by monitories themselves. Maybe more. Why would a decent honest minority want to find themselves in a high crime area at 11:00 at night?
The real question here is - who does the NAACP actually represent? Do they represent all blacks, including the prosperous, hard-working blacks, people often called "Uncle Toms" or "race traitors"? Or do they represent the criminals, the welfare queens, the dead beats? Outrages like this by the NAACP, the Rev Jesse Jackson Jr, Al Sharpton, etc makes one wonder. I just find it interesting that we never hear a similar outcry from the above mentioned when a fellow black is called an Uncle Tom or race traitor...
