I understand what you are saying. However it is not understandable. You have a choice what you do with that choice is up to you. If you are hungry find a legit way for making money it is that easy.

I agree Myrn. You can not blame your surroundings there is always something legal you can do. If not move to better surroundings.

They can't afford to move.

I legit just copied your first two sentences in irony, I don't think you yourself understand what had happened here.

Have you ever done something you didn't want to do? IE I have said pick weeds and or shovel snow. Manual labor works like a charm or you can just take the easy way out and steal. I understand that it is not ok to break the law just because times are tough I know that. Guess what? If the people who are stealing are white they are also in the wrong and should not be doing under any circumstances is that a little bit clearer.

These aren't reliable sources of income, and that is even if the person in question is able to find them at all. We are talking about cities and large urban areas, most of those sorts of work are taken care of by the city, or done by contractors. Meaning we end up back at square one.

I understand that it is not ok to break the law just because times are tough I know that.
I'm still not arguing that it is ok to break the law. You are asserting that it is my argument and it still isn't.

My argument still isn't that crime is ok Shadow.

My argument remains that poverty pushes people to crime as a means to survive and that poverty is the best explanation for the high crime rate you kept waving around. I am not saying that it is a good thing only that it is what is currently happening. Constantly saying that "they shouldn't do that!" doesn't change the fact that it is what they do.

There is no reliable sources of income but stealing is? When I was 17 leaving on my own nothing legal was beneath me. I worked after work to pay my rent if that meant mowing lawn cleaning gutters or what not nothing was to good for me not to do.

Ok but not being able to prosecute them because they are black. And if we do then that's white privilege? I don't get it.

None of that was anything I have said, you have once more completely missed any semblance of my point, you have continued to insinuate that I am fine with crime despite that having nothing to do with my argument, so I'm done.

I understand that you are not ok with it. So how does white privilege tie into this?
