    If we make all selection processes for loans, jobs, and enrollment in colleges race and gender blind using anonymizer services we'll be much better off.

    The problem is we'd also have to remove names, because studies have continually found that people with "black" sounding names get called back less often. So even if you remove the race and their name sounds black, it will still be a problem.

    You're kinda helping prove my point.

    PSD: where the moderators consistently cave to crybaby tattletales and it's a lot safer to be openly racist, hateful, and ignorant than to be a little rude to the racist, hateful, and ignorant

    Not true. Blacks and women might be but who cares about them

    Yes. That would be part of anonymizing. Need to fix their diction in any writing and spoken language too.

    Look what happens when you don't need the police and you move some of their funding to programs like this. Who woulda thunk?

    I do not. But it is the Post so maybe they do have one (I do use an ad blocker). Basically, they put a mental health person with a paramedic and they go check out certain situations such as a girl getting naked in an alleyway or someone having a mental breakdown on the sidewalk. They’ve responded to 350 calls so far and not needed police backup yet.

    Oh no's. A naked lady in an alley. Did she have a gun? Did she charge the mental health person or the paramedic with a knife?

    Actually, that's awesome. I honestly hope that trend continues. Still need cops.

    Oh goody. Videos supporting points of view.

    here's one……

    https://www.ktvu.com/news/social-wor...trying-to-help

    Wow……here's another.

    https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/the...rica-ranked/2/


    Seems pointless trying to support a point of view with these articles when there always seems to be plenty of other articles supporting the opposite point of view.

    But I know we'll just keep trying.
