There’s a certain Darkness at Noon vibe to the Justice Department’s jihad against Ferguson over its history of more blacks than whites getting in trouble with cops (to make up for fact that Holder’s Department couldn’t figure out any plausible justification for subjecting Darren Wilson to double jeopardy to please the outgoing boss).
But if everyone is guilty, then the Justice Department can just hammer any town they feel like?
Here’s the NYT’s graph based on the supposedly damning statistics in the Justice Department’s report:
Okay, but is everyone guilty? Can any municipality in America produce a graph where blacks don’t get in trouble with the law more than whites? The existence of equal numbers of White Malefactors somewhere or other is presumed, but can anybody identify the actual place?
If there is one, my guess would be that it would be in a white part of the country next to a big Air Force base, where most of the blacks came to town because they were eligible to join the Air Force. (These days, you have to score at close to the 50th percentile on the heavily g-loaded AFQT enlistment cognitive test to get into the Air Force.) Off the top of my head, Minot, North Dakota sounds like the best hope for a town where blacks don’t get arrested more often than whites.
Does anybody have any suggestions?
