Episode 6 of “Wokeness, Public Safety, BLM & Antifa” w/Matt Thornton
A quick followup. This video was marked as "hateful content" by TikTok and removed.
"BLM is actually part of the problem."
Brilliant! Matt's clarity is inspiring. Keep writing, Matt.
"repeating it over and over again with a narrative that the entire media, like the mockingbirds that they are, repeats endlessly"
Unfortunately, it's not only the media.
I can't tell you how many instances like that I've encountered during my attempts at sincere academic analysis of race-based discrimination in policing. There's an enormous number of academic papers in supposedly serious disciplines repeating just the same narrative, building mountains of research motivated by the same convictions, which directly or indirectly rely on unreliable or misleading data.
Even Steven Pinker has said that putting a cop on every street corner in these zip codes you speak of for 6-24 months would solve a lot of these problems.
Unfortunately, college campuses are parasitized by woke ideology. Here's some stuff on that from Gad Saad. https://unskool.substack.com/p/the-parasitization-of-college-campuses
Misinformation cuz of the media’s: Moneyed interests. Rumor incentive. Progressive Gospel ideology broadcast and accepted by enough US citizens who are students and colleagues (via compelled DEI trainings). Media narratives are proprietary terministic screens interpellating us into false impressions of the country’s problems.
Seems like a shift in black culture would be a much more effective solution than locking more killers up. I mean, if the entire point of this video is to look objectively at the data, no one can deny the fact that mass incarceration is not working. Now, how we create a shift in thinking & behavior in an entire culture is a job for better thinkers than me. I’m only a middle manager creating very top-level ideas 🤣
Which table is the zipcode data found in?
