1.5 Million Missing Black Men

Justin Wolfers et al., New York Times, April 20, 2015

In New York, almost 120,000 black men between the ages of 25 and 54 are missing from everyday life. In Chicago, 45,000 are, and more than 30,000 are missing in Philadelphia. Across the South–from North Charleston, S.C., through Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi and up into Ferguson, Mo.–hundreds of thousands more are missing.

They are missing, largely because of early deaths or because they are behind bars. Remarkably, black women who are 25 to 54 and not in jail outnumber black men in that category by 1.5 million, according to an Upshot analysis. For every 100 black women in this age group living outside of jail, there are only 83 black men. Among whites, the equivalent number is 99, nearly parity.

African-American men have long been more likely to be locked up and more likely to die young, but the scale of the combined toll is nonetheless jarring. It is a measure of the deep disparities that continue to afflict black men–disparities being debated after a recent spate of killings by the police–and the gender gap is itself a further cause of social ills, leaving many communities without enough men to be fathers and husbands.

Perhaps the starkest description of the situation is this: More than one out of every six black men who today should be between 25 and 54 years old have disappeared from daily life.

MissingBlacks

Incarceration and early deaths are the overwhelming drivers of the gap. Of the 1.5 million missing black men from 25 to 54–which demographers call the prime-age years–higher imprisonment rates account for almost 600,000. Almost 1 in 12 black men in this age group are behind bars, compared with 1 in 60 nonblack men in the age group, 1 in 200 black women and 1 in 500 nonblack women.

Higher mortality is the other main cause. About 900,000 fewer prime-age black men than women live in the United States, according to the census. It’s impossible to know precisely how much of the difference is the result of mortality, but it appears to account for a big part. Homicide, the leading cause of death for young African-American men, plays a large role, and they also die from heart disease, respiratory disease and accidents more often than other demographic groups, including black women.

{snip}

The gender gap does not exist in childhood: There are roughly as many African-American boys as girls. But an imbalance begins to appear among teenagers, continues to widen through the 20s and peaks in the 30s. It persists through adulthood.

{snip}

The black women left behind find that potential partners of the same race are scarce, while men, who face an abundant supply of potential mates, don’t need to compete as hard to find one. As a result, Mr. Charles said, “men seem less likely to commit to romantic relationships, or to work hard to maintain them.”

The imbalance has also forced women to rely on themselves–often alone–to support a household. In those states hit hardest by the high incarceration rates, African-American women have become more likely to work and more likely to pursue their education further than they are elsewhere.

{snip}

It does appear as if the number of missing black men is on the cusp of declining, albeit slowly. Death rates are continuing to fall, while the number of people in prisons–although still vastly higher than in other countries–has also fallen slightly over the last five years.

    I don’t see ANY problem here.

    Do you?

    • listenupbub

      My problem: It would be more efficient to use the death penalty on the worst criminals, than to waste so much money on free housing, gym, movies, food, etc. in the jail.

      • Jason Lewis

        I would be for the death penalty except as it currently stands. You can incarcerate three men in maximum security for 40 years each for the cost to get one man to execution.

        • Oldcorporal

          It wouldn’t be a tenth as expensive if a federal law limited the number, and grounds for, appeals of the death penalty. Look at Mumia Abu-Jamal, for instance. Murdered a Philadelphia policeman in 1981, and he’s still alive, and considered by some idiots to be a “celebrity.”

          • Stephen Wordsworth

            For repeat offenders with 2 or more felonie convictions there should be an automatic death sentence with no right to appeal. If retrospectively enforced it would get rid of most crime overnight.

          • David Ashton

            Bringing in the electric chair and gas chamber for juveniles who fail to finish their schoolwork would also help, wouldn’t it?

          • Sheik Yerbouti

            Too simple. People can earn a felony for bad checks. A death sentence should only be reserved for murderers and rapists.

            Please don’t refer to that POS by his phony “african” name. He was born wesley cook, his white-man, oppressor name.

        • bilderbuster

          You can charter large cargo planes to Africa for far less.
          They could fly there full of Blacks and return with a cargo of coffee or something worthwhile from Africa.

          • John Smith

            Parachutes extra.

          • Cid Campeador

            A repatriation program supported by a tax would be a great investment in the security of us and our progeny.

          • bilderbuster

            With modified oil supertankers, the unruly ones can leave in the same way their ancestors came here.
            Locked in the ship’s hold.

          • mobilebay

            Funny, I was thinking the same thing about repatriating all those from south of the border with the use of the cargo planes.

          • bilderbuster

            We should just cram them all (Central and South Americans) into cattle cars and dump them in Mexico and let the Mexicans deal with them. Mexico lets everyone of them use Mexico as an entry point into the US so give them some payback.

          • Ragnarök

            They will just sneak back across the border. Send them to Somalia.

          • bilderbuster

            Not if it’s mined.

          • Stephen Wordsworth

            The only reason why illegal immigration is a problem and hard to enforce in white countries is because there is a population of legal immigrants for them to hide amongst and even when we do catch them we let them go with a lengthy legal process before deportation during which they disappear. The problems with immigration are only due to a lack of political will. You could also place robotic snipers with thermal infrared cameras along the border.

          • yarpos .

            Something worthwhile from Africa……..I’ll have a think and come back

          • bilderbuster

            There’s plenty of raw materials and minerals there and we can’t have those planes flying back empty.

    • Jason Lewis

      The only problem is that somehow this will be blamed on us.

      • JohnEngelman

        I am already beginning to feel guilty abut it.

        *sarcasm off*

      • Albert

        Blame always falls on the scapegoat. They can accept the truth and hate themselves, or they can hate us and keep their undeserved and over inflated sense of pride.

    • Reynardine

      Yeah, my only problem is that it wasn’t higher.

    • APaige

      No. I just don’t want them found. ‘Missing’ is a good place.

    • MG Huffman

      The problem is that they’re in the same hemisphere as us.

    • Earl P. Holt III

      “Nothing became them in life like the leaving it…”

    • ElComadreja

      Yes. Those numbers seem awfully low considering the criminal proclivities of blacks.

    • Greg_Deane

      It’s a solution that could be extended to the Hispanic population thanks to internecine gang warfare. Leave them to their own devices, and the immigrant crime problem will evaporate. The same sort of benign neglect should be applied to the Muslim sects warring against each other in the Middle East.

  • Dave West

    And the issue is……..?

    Am I supposed to cry and riot for their “return” to society?

    • How about we return all of New York’s “missing” black men to Times Square?

      • Dave West

        Not a bad idea; I propose that they should be returned to the hipster colony of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.

      • John Ambrose

        Dump ’em off right if front of the New York Times building- 620 Eighth Avenue; New York, NY

      • Albert

        Meh, ship them off to Liberia or Haiti so they can finally be free of white oppression. Then they will finally have the chance to prove everyone wrong by creating a shinning utopia. It’s a win, win for all of us.

        • Irish

          To be sure, Not for them ..

  • Across the South–from North Charleston, S.C., through Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi and up into Ferguson, Mo

    Ferguson is Dixie now?

    • jane johnson

      Slippery slope syndrome…never should’ve invited MO to join the SEC.

  • Another new Marxist slogan: “missing men”. Nice poopaganda, but easily countered by asking how many WHITE men and women are “missing” because they’re dead, raped, or maimed at the hands of black thugs.

    Additionally, how many white children are missing because feminism has driven white men into the MGTOW movement–Men Going Their Own Way.

    Muh missin’ bruthas are missing because they don’t behave themselves. And never will until we begin imposing corporal punishment on them–pain in the form of public lashings, as in some other countries such as Singapore.

    • Cheri Rodriguez

      And how many White kids are missing because White women have decided to bed down with black men? I see so many mulattoes and quadroons in my area that it’s like “Invasion of The Body Snatchers.”

      • LexiconD1

        Really? Which part of the country do you live? I live in L.A., but I see relatively few. Maybe because my son’s school (k-8) was almost entirely white, as is his small community in High School?…God I love school of choice.

        Nor do I see them at his extra curricular activities much, but then black kids are mostly not interested in learning fighting that takes thinking and self control (my son is a brown belt in karate and jujitsu.) But, I see a ton of plain blacks at his bowling league (although both his partners are white.)

        • Cheri Rodriguez

          Connecticut. It’s mainly contained to the major cities / “urban” areas like Hartford, New Haven, Bridgeport and Waterbury.

          • AmericanRemnant

            Culturally vibrant population centers.

        • Susan

          The metro Atlanta area. It’s increasing even where I live in a small town 30 miles south of Atlanta. (Not south Atlanta.)

          • LexiconD1

            I’d actually expect that out of Atlanta. Truth be told…

        • Spaniard in LA

          I live in southeat L.A and I also don’t see a lot of blacks. Several nephews of mine play sports and not one black in sight. We do have several Hispanics but most don’t speak Spanish but they do carry their ice chest full of beer.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        Give them the curled-lip sneer of disgust and shun them. Works for me!

        • Michael Robert Ryan

          That only makes them smirk because they know they’ve gotten to you (which is exactly what they intended.) Better to just ignore them and deny them the attention they so crave. Of course, there are relatively few of them where I’m at so ignoring them is much easier.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            It seems to really piss them off when I do it, maybe because I’m a woman and usually have my blonde, blue-eyed kids, and husband, with me. Really illustrates the difference in our life choices, especially when they have their ugly offspring with them.

            Where do you live that you see relatively few?? I’m moving there! It’s not super common here but definitely more than I like to see. But one is too many, really.

          • DJRicin

            I go for a bit of an eye roll and a chuckle. I don’t let them know that I’m angry, but just that I’m better.

      • Rob

        I agree. White women bedding down with negroes have tainted them and robbed the white race of valuable white people. White people, both men and women should be taught that preserving the gene pool is important and not bedding down with anything just to look cool is going to do any good. I blame Hollywood for promoting that kind of abomination and also our wonderful “DIE-verse” schools and colleges also churches that say it is all love and it should not be questioned.

        If a white woman has 4 mullattoe babies, then that is 4 less white people. If she had mated with a pure white man , then you are adding 4 extra white people. See the math does not lie.

        Also when these mulatoes mate with other blacks and have kids, then that is another whole set of white people missing from the white gene pool that is added to the black gene pool. It goes on exponentially forever.

        So people should think before marrying or bedding down with a negroe or a mestizo.

        • LexiconD1

          Funny thing…

          My Mom is a bleeding heart liberal nutjob. She has whined at me since I was small that she will kick me out of the family if I ever so much as dated someone ‘not white’, and believe it or not ‘fat’. Her excuse, “I want grandkids who look like me”…

          Now that I’m a parent, I see her point. I’m doing the same with my son (except I’m trying go about it nicer than she did.)

          Thanks for reminding me of this, I’m laughing about her ‘no fat guys’ lecture as I typed this…The only other funnier lecture was her opinion of gays. Yeah, she doesn’t like them much either.

          • Rob

            So you just have one pure white son? Why didn’t you have more??? Does your husband have the same views as you?

          • Cid Campeador

            White is skin color; not the shape of their eyes. They’re cute kids.

          • 3G4Me

            They’re still not White, even by your metric. And no, they’re not cute in any way. Neither do I find niglets “cute.” Never did – even when I was a far-left liberal myself. Common sense will out, I suppose.

          • UncleSham

            The White I care about is a race, not a color. Skin tone is an arbitrary marker, it is only notable as a generally reliable way in which to identify racial kin. I do like the aesthetic of fair skin as opposed to dark, but that’s not really the point.

          • george00

            Your mom is a Liberal and she didn’t want you to ever so much as dated someone ‘not white’. Your mother doesn’t sound like a Liberal, Liberals are in favor of White genocide.

          • LexiconD1

            I think the difference between my Mom and all the other nutjob liberals, is she came here as a legal immigrant (as a child, and became a citizen young), but her family kept traditional values, if that makes sense…

      • Sheik Yerbouti

        I appreciate your frustration in this matter, but mixed couples are still a minor segment of the population. The media gives them as much play as any other kind of perversion so it only seems like they are “everywhere”. They aren’t and they have only a negligible effect on population overall.

        Let them live in shame, let their offspring wake to realize how their parents ruined their lives.

        • Susan

          I hope you’re right!!

      • Magician

        What about white men who go for Asian women or other types of non white women? In my area ( MA ) I see white men going for non white girls three to five times more often than I see white women going for non white men

        And when I walked around Manhattan New York I saw hundreds of whites and blacks but saw only one white woman involved interacially. It was a white mother with a mulatto baby ( where was the daddy? )

    • Whitetrashgang

      You cant corporal punish a animal to behave, no maybe you can sorry.

      • AmericanRemnant

        No comparison, animals are more civilized.

        • LexiconD1

          And, live by a set of long establish rules, in which they know their place on the pecking order.

          • UncleSham

            People who treat their dogs like equals always have the worst behaved pets.

      • Deacon Blue

        This is correct. Corporal punishment will only serve to make aggressive
        Blacks more aggressive.

        • John Smith

          Capital punishment works better.

      • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

        Well I for one think we should not give up without trying…

    • Albert

      All efforts at creating corrective programs in prison have utterly failed. Perhaps a punitive system would be more effective.
      I loved the Singapore incident where the young American was given the lash for vandalism. Most of the American public were so tired of our playground penal system that they applauded the whipping.

    • Rob

      I agree. White women bedding down with negroes have tainted them and robbed the white race of valuable white people.

      So people should think before marrying or bedding down with a negroe or a mestizo.

      • Sheik Yerbouti

        They don’t have to be taught to preserve the gene pool, it’s an instinct. Only our modern society has created a culture where instincts come into doubt. Those who doubt the damage of race mixing are welcome to engage in it as far as I’m concerned. Let their family become a dead end, I sure don’t care. My family is just fine.

        • Rob

          We must not have that attitude, because it is a contagious infection that can infect your family at anytime. We must stop that infection by quashing that idea that it is cool to be black and that it is cool to have mullattoe babies to tick off daddy.

          • Sheik Yerbouti

            I have personally known two families who had daughters like this. For one it was a way to get out of the house and Daddy’s harsh rules (like not doing drugs, staying out late or turning into a slut). He didn’t disown her, she gave her family the finger and walked out. They hear from her at random intervals, usually by phone when she’s very drunk and belligerent . The other sought out her target on appearances alone. She wanted a mixed baby with specific features from a particularly looking black man. I am still shaking my head on that one because the children look like alien creatures and she’s had them taken from her by the state more than once.

            When people walk out on their family I wonder when it hits them that is the point they sold their soul? I’m not suggesting that all families are benevolent. Some are so bad one must bail out. That’s different.

            Most of the race mixers I encounter come from families that never had much class to begin with. Some had money, but were just more proof of what it can’t buy.

          • Rob

            Yes you are right. Money can never buy you class. Just look at the negro rappers. They have all that money, but not one iota of class.

        • UncleSham

          You would be right, except that the anti-White propaganda has become so engrossing as to require counter propaganda. Many people have become so programmed its as if they are devoid of natural instinct. We live in a time when even the very concept of survival is no longer a widely agreed upon moral imperative.

        • george00

          You need to take your blinders off. What goes on around you may some day effect you.

          • Sheik Yerbouti

            This is a stupid jab that means nothing to me. What’s the point of it?

    • Cid Campeador

      Agreed!!! The outrage over incarceration and police shootings wouldn’t exist if Blacks would cease their antisocial behavior.

      • Susan

        Problem is, so many are dumb and don’t understand that their behavior causes incarceration & police shootings. The ones who do understand are still blaming it on whites–slavery, oppression, white privilege. A lot of this is low IQ blacks & corrupt, government brainwashing.

  • connorhus

    It’s a start anyway.

  • RacialRay

    They can only be “missing” if someone is actually looking for them. Just try avoiding black men and all the troubles they bring and tell us again how many of them seem to be “missing”.

    • Spikeygrrl

      Nicely done.

  • AmericanCitizen

    “It is a measure of the deep disparities that continue to afflict black men . . .”

    Don’t bother to mention that those disparities are CAUSED by black men. That would be using facts and logic – two things in short supply at the New York Times.

    • Alexandra1973

      Liberalism appears to be based on emotion to begin with.

        We can be certain it isn’t based on brain power, that’s for sure.

  • superlloyd

    ‘It is a measure of the deep disparities that continue to afflict black men–’ If these missing saints weren’t violent, criminal scum then there wouldn’t be the disparities, you dishonest, libtard idiot. They are not passive victims as you weaselly imply but active and responsible participants in the heinous crimes they committed including internecine killing. Transparent lies such as this dupe glibly scribbles make me want to hurl.

  • Bossman

    Black males are a very expendable group. They are usually the victims in most murders, not only in the USA but all over the world.

      And the perpetrators as well, so them getting snuffed doesn’t break my heart.

      And usually murdered by other blacks.

    • Exuberant Auditor

      Hey, Bossman, since you’re the only Hispanic enlightening us with your insights here, what do you think is the most prevalent view of blacks in the Hispanic community? Overall negative (as in, “most of them are no good”) or positive (as in, “they’re our allies in the fight against whitey”)?

      The only thing you’ve enlightened about Hispanics so far is how like us they are (a lot of bull in that one) and how you like thick women and not Asians.

      • Albert

        Hispanics have not one shred of our white guilt. They are far less tolerant of them than we are.

      • Spikeygrrl

        Does “thick” in this context mean “fat”? This is NOT a rhetorical question; I truly never have been able to figure out that particular usage. TIA!

        • Exuberant Auditor

          Nah, here it means full, and/or curvaceous. It’s a generic, tasteless word that I used to emphasize the irrelevance of some of Bossman’s past observations.

      • Spaniard in LA

        Hispanics hate blacks and would rather lick the White man’s feet than hug a black man. I grow up in Los Angeles so I’ve seen this my whole life. You don’t see black mobs attacking innocent people in areas like Los Angeles because Hispanics won’t tolerate their BS. I myself have never had any problems with Hispanics, especially those that have been here for several generations. I just can’t stand the newly arrived ones who leach off the rest of us.

    • bilderbuster

      In the US there are more White murder victims at the hands of Blacks than Blacks.

  • DNA Explains It All

    The real question is how do we get that number much much higher?

      you, you. you’re good you…

  • IstvanIN

    Notice how the article doesn’t mention what blacks can do for themselves to end this disparity.

    • EuropeanIdentity33

      Because there is nothing they can do. This is their nature and no matter what they can’t escape it.

      • bilderbuster

        And nothing that Whites can do really.
        We try to prevent it as much as possible and get abused for our efforts.

    Oh, so THAT’S why black men are such horrible father figures. I love it when a good narrative comes together.

      Always an excuse!

      They are too stupid to see that their leftist masters sought to destroy their families so they could control them better and have absolutely succeeded.

  • disqus_Xz3UA6obwj

    Stupid is deadly and blacks prove it every single day.

  • AmericanRemnant

    Missing from this tripe of an article is the concept of being accountable for one’s behavior. This author would have us believe these kind gentle souls have been mercilessly plucked from their mama’s bosom and are now missing. Please.

    • junkbondtrader41

      It is truly remarkable how black behavior is deemed utterly irrelevant in this dynamic, isn’t it?

      They had no role in their own deaths or incarceration, they’re just “missing!” A cop shoots a black who tried to take his gun? “MURDER! MURDER!”

      • AmericanRemnant

        Accountability is woefully lacking in this nanny state of perpetual childhood. And instead of being diagnosed with dementia the author will probably win a prize!

    • I noticed in the article that this disparity just sort of “affects” (NYT’s word) blacks, as if they have no input or responsibility whatever for the phenomenon.

      • Albert

        Kind of reminds me of the argument that liberals are racist in that they do not hold blacks to the same expectations they have of other races.

    • Albert

      That is a constant. Whatever the problem, the blame is always directed back to us. On black websites, one popular debate is whether or not the criminals among them can really be considered responsible for their own actions.

      • LexiconD1

        Choices are ALWAYS the fault of the person who makes them. That’s when responsibility comes into play. When circumstances outside of choice arise, that’s when you are not responsible for your predicament.

        But, I’m pretty sure they would not understand what most of those words mean, in more ways than one.

    So if there’s going to be any brotherhood in the land of brothers and hoods, you gots to keepin’ the brothers occupied, gnome sane? And an occupied man ain’t got no time to be messin’ #$%^ that ain’t concerned with his thing that he needs to make be done, gnome sane?

    So a brother with five baby-mommas ain’t got no time for crime, gnome sane?

    So a peaceful ghetto is one that has five fat-sassy-stupid baby mommas for every one brother. Which means you ain’t gonna get no peace in the hood with a male:female ratio of 84:100. It takes a male:female ratio of 20:100. Which means that there still is far too many males for the continuation of this near-human species. Which is why there is still too much lootin’ and shootin’ in de hood.

    Everybody knows this. Don’t need no Master’s degree to see it, gnome sane?

    • Exuberant Auditor

      Exactly. American blacks don’t need a high male:female ratio to keep their community going. Well, technically, any community can survive and even multiply with a very low male:female ratio provided all the females get pregnant multiple times. And that’s especially true in a modern first-world country where no one is allowed to starve.

      Which is why my reactions to such news and “plights” of the black communities vary from “*yawn*” to “boo-hoo”.

    White men are overall more responsible than black men, hence these disparities. What else is new.

      Perhaps it’s time to end conjugal visits in prisons!

        That could help. But even without that, black women can just have children with men outside the prison, which is what they seem to be doing.

  • Susan

    What is the point of writing this article? I’d really like to know. Everyone already knows all this stuff, so you’re presenting nothing new. What you should be reporting is the cause of these statistics. But of course a liberal is never going to place blame where it belongs, and that’s with the corrupt, US government’s rules and regulations over the past 50 years concerning supposed ‘civil rights.’ Forced association, political correctness, affirmative action, destructive brainwashing, & disingenuous, parasite-creating welfare programs. That’s what has caused such destruction in society. The most profound problem of all is refusal of government to recognize that there are significant differences in whites & blacks, primarily intelligence. Expecting races to be ‘equal’ is flagrantly & obviously destructive any way you look at it, because it’s impossible. Refusal by the government to be honest is the root of all this evil race schit forced on whites. It’s another of the government’s divide and conquer games that are continually be played-out. Corruption rules.

    I remember an elderly man I once knew who had been a foreman in a GM plant for a number of years. He summed up the situation with blacks this way once: “Black women will work. Black men won’t.” And he knew what he was talking about. There is apparently something in the DNA of black males which leads them, from a young age, to be more prone to violence, more likely to be defiant and confrontational with authority (usually the police), and more prone to other self-destructive behavior than young men of other races. And also much less prone to be willing to work hard to, as we used to say, “make something of themselves.” It’s not “discrimination” or “racism” or “bias.” It’s in the genes.

    • Dave West

      In college I was in a business course and we were put into groups for a semester long project; I was put into a group with 2 gentle giants, 1 black girl, and another white guy. If you were hoping for a story about where the black genius saves the day, you’ve come to the wrong place! This entire charade happened more than 10 years ago and I remember it like it was 5 minutes ago. When it came to assignments and the presentation me and the other white guy did 90+% of the work; the black girl at least tried, even though her work was sub-par much of the time. I literally can’t think of a single thing the 2 black guys did the entire time, other than incoherently mumble through their sections of the presentation at the end of the year.

      During one part of the project we met to answer 10(long-answer) questions. Me and the other white guy answered 8 out of the 10, and the black girl managed to get her way through 2 of them. The 2 black guys did nothing; they sat their joking, making noise, and looking at white girls in the library. One of the gentle gains made an attempt to find the answer for one of the questions, but apparently got distracted, so the black girl picked up the tab. I was angered to find that the following year that one of the gentle giants was picked to be in a highly selective student-run mutual fund; that I wasn’t even picked to be in given my 3.6 GPA and prior trading experience with my personal account that I started with money I made in high school.

      • Deacon Blue

        Have you ever tried to explain derivatives like a covered call or a naked
        put to a Black man? Or the concept of something like insurance? Or
        arbitrage? You would think arbitrage would come naturally because they
        are all “hustlers” in the street, right? I tried to explain commodities and
        stock to a few Blacks at my company when the HR lady did her 401K
        presentation. Waste of my time and their time. The stock market
        is some magical, mystical thing to Blacks but if you invest in it, in any
        part of it, you “win” according to them. It’s automatic.

        • Dave West

          Unless it’s that “magic negro” that got into all 8 Ivy league colleges, I wouldn’t waste my time. Option trading strategies can be tricky even for people who understand them.

        • Lexonaut

          “… naked put …”

          I’ve heard of fisting, but WTF?

          • Deacon Blue

            Some folks call them “uncovered puts” – it happens when the guy selling the option has no underlying position in the actual stock itself. This is different from a married or protective
            put where you would own the underlying stock and then
            buy a put contract against it. This creates a hedge (insurance). Usually the worst case is you will lose your premium for buying the put (oversimplified) if the strike price is not reached.

            So you have created limited downside and (theoretically)
            unlimited upside.

            If the guy you sell a put contract to does not exercise on/before the strike date you get to keep the premium. You don’t see a lot of pure play naked puts as the existential risk is very high. Its not a potential unlimited loss even if the stock goes to zero, unlike a naked (uncovered) call which virtually no brokerage is going to let you run unless you have a large cash position with them.

            If there is a great spread between the cost of a certain strike price/date of a call and a put (these types of things don’t usually last but they do happen) then buying both can virtually guarantee you an arbitrage position and you’re in the black {as opposed to inside of a Black, which would be awful} almost instantly.

            An Iron Condor trading strategy requires the simultaneous use of puts and calls. I happened to have made a fair amount of money playing Alibaba stock (BABA) when it first came out and was trading sideways for awhile with an Iron Condor, actually it was an Iron Condor with the wings clipped (sometimes called a Strangle). As the stock price did nothing and then suddenly rose to around $120/share I made a lot more money “Strangling BABA” then I would have owning the stock outright.

            People think derivatives are complicated and arcane but like
            anything else, if you read about them and practice “dry runs”
            until you get it? They are not really that difficult to master.

            I self direct my IRA as I have found that no broker cares
            more about my money and retirement than I do. I tend to
            play very aggressively and yeah, I have gotten clipped on
            a margin call twice which almost wiped out my IRA.

            Then again, I have seen gains of 50% in the same trading
            day using options. You do need to have the stomach for
            this sort of thing.

            I just have never met a Black with the patience to understand
            the idea of a contract/insurance that an option provides
            and that you can buy/sell calls and puts in theory without
            ever owning a single share of the underlying stock or
            commodity (futures market for gold or pork belly or oil).

            “How can you sell the right to buy a stock at a higher or
            lower price if you don’t own it now?” – LOL!

            They tend not to grasp future events that could happen in
            say 6-12-36 months. They think its some magic White
            juju spell casting where you put money in an account and
            then later you automatically get more money.

            The other issue is that most Blacks are so in the here and now
            that they won’t save in the 401K even with the generous
            match we provide which is an instant 25% ROI if they thought
            about it.

          • Lexonaut

            I understand puts and calls, I was simply making a joke. In the middle 1800s the options market hardly existed and the big deal was selling naked shorts, as in …

            Must buy it back or go to prison.

        Whenever I would decide to sell a rental property, I would always offer to sell it to the present tenants first. The black tenants, whether they were teachers, lawyers, accountants, nurses, government workers almost always said the same thing, “How do I do that?” NO concept of applying for a loan, establishing credit, evaluating what they could afford. It became a joke between my partner and me. We would always say that we wished we were their bankers, if they had banks, since most transactions were in cash.

    Here’s a genuine quote from my sabbatical. One black male to another:
    “I see yo’ daddy down in the county jail.”
    They weren’t ever “present” to begin with, because they’re not productive members of our society; they’re predators and they are “absent” because they’re put away to protect those of us who are legitimately present, with jobs and responsibilities, not menacing our neighbors, paying taxes, etc.

        Maury has had that racket going for years now and it seems to keep the TV audience coming back for more. I remember one episode where this young brotha is getting his azz chewed by this teen girl’s mother. She is in this guy’s face about child support, etc. The paternity test came back negative for him as being the daddy. Maury followed up by telling everyone that she had tagged another brotha as the daddy; that turned out negative and the last he heard, she was still out there searching (amongst several bucks, I gather) for the daddy, so she can get that pot of bling at the end of the rainblow.

  • Light from the East

    For every 100 black women in this age group living outside of jail, there are only 83 black men. That means for every 100 black women, there are 17 black men in jail or already dead, 17% of them. That’s crazy if you live in a black neighborhood you will see criminals everyday.

It is the dysfunction of the blacks themselves, people. You break the law, you go to jail. Plain and simple. You make bad decisions, you shoot people over the slightest things “He disrespected me!”, then people die. This is not our fault, and just more evidence blacks don’t belong in our society.
