Why do the NFL kneelers accuse the police of racism but not sexism?

OK. So let me see if I understand what’s going on.

After multiple recent incidents of the police shooting unarmed black men, the protestors are accusing the police of racism, but they are not accusing the police of sexism.

Why is that?

If these police police are racist, then why are they not also sexist?

    Please give me a hypothetical example of what would constitute police sexism that should be protested? Are you saying they only arrest MALES? I’m just not sure how sexism plays a role in how the police execute the duties for which they were hired.

      The complaint against the police is based purely on statistics:

      Blacks make up only 13% of citizens of the USA but make up 30% of police shootings. QED: racist.

      Applying the same logic to men make up only 49% of citizens in USA by 96% of police shootings. QED: sexist.

      The problem with this sort of “logic” in both cases is that the police are not selecting people randomly from the population to interact with. Police interact with criminals and both men and blacks are far more likely to be criminals than their respective control group, woman and non-blacks.

      These uncomfortable facts can be shown even if police reports are not used to. Victim reports done by 3rd parties show a massive over-representation of blacks in both murder and assault.

      Males make up only 49% of the general population, but they make up 93% of the prison population. Now, if there’s anything I’ve learned from listening to liberals, it’s that the only possible reason for this kind of overrepresentation of men in prison is discrimination – it couldn’t possibly be that men have higher rates of crime than women. And yet for some weird reason, we never hear liberals complain about this sexism. Why is that?

    Is that a stupid question or is that a stupid question that only a right winger can ask?

    • Jackson replied:

      Actually it is an excellent question based on logic, something you apparently don’t have much of a command of. Typical “left winger”.

    • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

      According to liberals, whenever a group is either underrepresented or overrepresented in anything (college admissions, employment, etc.) compared to how they are in the general population, the only possible explanation is discrimination. Therefore, since males make up 49% of the general population but 93% of the prison population, the only possible explanation for this disparity is sexism. So why haven’t the liberals complained about this sexism?

      • EDell replied:

        Males make up 93% of the prison population because they commit 93% of the crimes deserving of prison time. Women for the most part are too busy raising kids – somebody has to do it when their criminal male partners end up incarcerated. I thought that math would be obvious to you, but you being a right winger, I guess not.

      • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

        But according to the social justice warriors, any time a group is not represented in something in a way that is proportional to their percentage of the general population, the only possible explanation is discrimination.

  3. EDell replied:

    And which social justice warriors are demanding that half the prison population be female? You do realize that for half the prison population to be female, it would have to include a lot of women who committed no crime at all, especially when just 7% have committed crimes. Where’s the social justice in locking up innocent women? Your understanding of social just warriors is clearly hampered by a dysfunctional right wing mind.

    • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

      There are no social justice warriors saying that women should make up half the prison population. And that is my point. The social justice warriors demand equal representation only for the things they like (like wanting more women to work at jobs where people sit at a desk in an air conditioned office) but never for the things they don’t like (like jobs working on a garbage truck).

      • EDell replied:

        You make about as much sense as a Trump tweet – “according to social justice warriors,” “there are no social justice warriors,” “social justice warriors demand”…. blah blah blah adds up to nothing but having it your way whichever way however it suits your phony argument. A “social justice warrior” isn’t about equal representation for everything, it’s about righting wrongs. Adding more women in prison, especially if they’re innocent of crimes, just to balance out the male-female prison population, isn’t righting any wrong, it’s only creating a worse wrong. Do you have the basic smarts to be able to see the difference?

      • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

        Of course it would be wrong to put women in prison if they didn’t commit any crimes. That’s my point. The drive for proportional representation doesn’t make any sense.

        And yet Obama forced the New York Fire Department to hire black firefighters who failed its “racist” qualification test, including a black firefighter who refused to fight fires. This was also done in the drive for proportional representation. And it’s just as dumb as putting women in jail who haven’t committed any crimes. See #1,064 on my Obama list for proof: https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2015/12/04/obama-part-3/
