Only on the point that gun violence is more prevalent in impoverished communities, but NOT on the point of why that is. Being poor is a common characteristic of a lot of people that commit gun crimes, it's not the "reason" they commit the crimes. There's not a high rate of teenage pregnancy in the poor community because they are poor, the rate is high due to some of the factors that also contribute to them being poor. Being "poor" is not the reason.

So your argument is that the connections are spurious. That's a reasonable position.

Inner city schools historically perform more poorly than other regions. They are thus more likely to suffer less funding due to performance based funding allocation.

C. The positive feedback cycle allows for others in the community to view education in general as both ineffective and unnecessary. Which leads to less reinvestment and less support for the power of a proper education.
many, many years ago there were one room schoolhouses all across this country which ALL had almost no money, yet people still got decent educations. Money is an excuse, not a reason. Again, a common thread in all your arguments.

Are you really prepared to argue that one room school houses in early America provided an education equivalent or superior to K-12 schools of the modern era?

The funny thing about gun control with people that are liberal, pacifist and or just plain ignorant is that if a major catastrophe happen they would be the first ones screaming about protect me. In most arguements with liberals you cant just state the facts and move on with life. You have to beat them over the head with them until you fix the screw thats loose.

Not at all, that's a wild leap that you have concocted. But I'm more than willing to argue that the education they received from a school with no money had much less (if any) disparity between the affluent and the poor as there is now, indicating money was not a factor in their education, but maybe attitudes, culture, personal responsibility and values ARE. But here we are again (still, actually): you insisting that the impoverished are not (or can not) be responsible for their situation, that it must be the fault of somebody else.

Gun violence is a culture propagated primarily by young, black males. That may hurt feelings but it is true. And no amount of socialist diarrhea is going to change that. Some overeducated, arrogant, self important, hippie liberal dick eater suggesting that he has all the answers is nauseatingly condescending. You can't save these people from themselves.

Well, I haven't really said that.

But let me put it this way. If you're born into a poor or dysfunctional family, are you personally responsible as a child for being subjected to malnourishment, physical or mental abuse, a lack of proper education or proper upbringing?

There comes a point when one must be willing to admit that there are many factors influencing citizens that are largely out of their control. That's not denying all personal responsibility. It's living in the real world.

If you have nothing useful to contribute, your pointless personal attacks are unnecessarily distracting.

What I contributed was useful. I was the first person to point out the relationship between young, black males and gun violence. You just ignored it. Probably because you don't want to admit that you nor Karl Marx can fix the problem.

Let me ask you, why do you think black males are so much more likely to be incarcerated than white males?

What do you think is the fundamental reason behind that fact?

Why don't you answer a question for me. Why is gun violence among poor black males so much higher then gun violence among poor white males?
