    Again, nothing to do with the movement.

    The two arent mutually exclusive.

    Fixing systemic racism is the most important hurdle in improving the inner cities.

    fixing whatever is there with systematic racism will do nothing for gang violence from people that are criminals and shooting people.

    this should have to do with the movement because these black lives mattered too.

    I disagree, it's all interconnected.

    systematic racism doesn't force anyone to do something. people are making their own decisions/choices. it's time to stop making excuses for anyone that decides this lifestyle, decides to shoot people, regardless of their race.

    This is about masks, but the end phrase is true.

    The state is responsible for what we become. Issues have to be resolved on a societal level first. Listen to this dude, he's a genius.

    people make choices/decisions, and they should be responsible for that. deciding to be a thug (black or white) and shoot people is not about racism or systematic racism. that is about them and what they decided to do.

    I recently had this conversation with nastynice.

    Fighting systemic racism isn't going to completely stop crime and violence, but it will have a major effect on the statistics. It will significantly reduce the statistics associated with crime and violence in these areas.

    are people making the choice to be in a gang and shoot people, going to change/stop if something is done to fight systematic racism?

    This is probably pointless, but it seems that you are saying that you don't believe living extreme poverty makes someone more likely to resort to crime/violence. And you don't believe that so many blacks living in extreme poverty has anything to do with the way they've been treated.

    if that was the case then crime and violence would be off the charts across America anywhere where there are poor neighborhoods, which includes neighborhoods both black and white.

    are blacks living in extreme poverty treated different because of that (not racism) or because they are black?

    are white people living in extreme poverty impacted by systematic racism?

    are white people living in extreme poverty also resorting to the same levels of crime and violence?

    geebus.....when is someone more likely to consider committing a crime....when they have the ability to purchase at least their basic needs ..or when they don't? and if the system dispropotianately works to prevent some groups from gaining that ability, what would be the logical expectation for crime within that group? and who is more at fault for that...the group or the system?

    since this could just as easily impact poorer white people, it can't by systematic racism only impacting black people.

    people should have responsibly/fault for their own actions.
