Who cares about how many “black people are killed” There is not enough black deaths to be considered an issue. It should be treated just like any other police error and not racial thing

Trump isnt smart but he isnt as bad or evil as the media makes him out to be + gun laws wont do shit to stop criminals when you have 350+ million firearms. Most gun deaths are gang related / suicides, with most homicides occuring in areas with extremely strict gun control. Texas is a great example of how guns arent the problem. Also background checks are a thing, and your standard AR-15 is just a slightly more powerful pistol with a larger possible magazine and more attachments, the rounds which most ar15s use will require multiple body shots to stop someone. USA's problem is the overblown military and private healthcare being free to earn 500% profit from a single treatment.

its not about having safe areas. It's about things like healthcare, infrastructure, and gun laws where our government refuses to try to make needed changes.
2019-09-03 01:46
Gun laws aren't the problem. It's all about race. White gun homicide is extremely low, and nothing of concern.
2019-09-03 01:48
are you baiting? really wanna know
2019-09-03 04:38
How is it a bait? Majority of gun related crime in the USA is committed by Hispanics and African-Americans. New England, a region in the U.S has lax guns laws but very low gun crime. This is no surprise, considering the demographics of the region.
2019-09-03 04:43
So you're suggesting that hispanic people and african people are just more prone to commit gun crimes? or do you think that maybe its because the average african american and hispanic person in america grow up poorer and in worse areas than the average white person due to all the years where they didnt have the same rights as white people? poverty leads to more crime there's nothing to suggest it has anything to do with race
2019-09-03 04:50
There are millions of poor Whites, I don't see them killing each other like inner city Blacks do. I've seen poor Asians, I don't see them murdering and robbing people. This is all due to race, and IQ. So yes, they are prone to commit more crimes in general.
2019-09-03 04:56
So you're unironically racist. There are a way lower % of poor white and asian people than african-american and hispanic people so of course it's not gonna be on the same scale but what study have you seen prove that poor white people commit less crimes than poor black people? because there are plenty of studies that prove poverty leads to more crime and not once have i seen one of those studies even mention race. I don't see how you can come to your conclusion without being inherently racist.
2019-09-03 05:04
IQ differences.
2019-09-03 05:49
They are poor because they are violent and stupid, not the other way around. Blacks are 13% of the US population and commit 51% of the murders.
2019-09-03 05:53
could you please provide any study that proves that black people are more prone to being violent? no wonder america is so divided when people actually believe stuff like this
2019-09-03 06:05
What for? I just gave you stats. Take a look at any black majority country or city in the world and tell me they aren't complete shitholes. Thanks
2019-09-03 07:02
You gave me the classic "despite only being x% of the population they commit x% of murders" that every right wingers gives with no context as to why they commit them, you think african countries generally have alot of crime because the people aren't white? no its because people turn to it when they have nothing else to survive, you think if africa had mainly white people that there'd be les crime?
2019-09-03 07:10
Always with the excuses with the left. They commit the most crimes everywhere in the world. Thanks for agreeing.

The only reason I said gun laws is because our gun laws are really wack. The only real changes I would do is pass mandatory background checks and treat gun licenses like car licenses and thats it. Banning certain firearms is just stupid since it wouldn't really do anything and it only increases the presence of the black market.

From what I've gathered and seen, main reasons for mass shootings especially by whites is due to mental health and economic insecurity. What saddens and angers me is that people seem to ignore these factors and either use guns or video games as scapegoats.

Yet another of the countless amount of indexes where the US isn't anywhere near top1. I'd also like to point out how the US was ranked #20 (and France #13) in 2007 in this questionable ranking method, that takes the amount of years educated as a strong indicator.

Higher education prestige .... not being a dick but your public universities are a fucking joke , compare the best universities in Denmark to the best Universities in U.S or UK. Drugs production , U.S invented and produced something crazy like over 70% of the drugs consumed and copied by the rest of the world. Freedom of speech , INCLUDES HATE SPEECH , it's protected...because that is REAL FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Some states have much simpler and friendlier tax structures : Utah , Wyoming , Nevada. Silicon Valley. Entertainment industry , games , movies. I don't even like U.S but the levels of mental gymnastics and just straight up bunch of bullshit you'd have to go through to actually do label the whole U.S as a shithole is just retarded dog. That's only compared to Denmark and im leaving soooo many things out (i didn't even bring up Military because Denmark's army is a joke compared to even some South American armies).

You never fail to make me laugh. A lot of butthurt rambling that has no sources provided. The only thing I'll grant you is that your entertainment industry is indeed the best in the world, but that's not even remotely close to the subject of discussion. I'd also like to correct your mad attempt at paraphrasing me. I never called the US a "shithole". My point is rather that the US is constantly displayed as "the greatest country ever", while barely anything backs up that fact. I don't see why you need to compare it to Denmark to get any point across in your desperate attempt at defending your nationalistic pride. It makes no difference to my point, and it doesn't hurt my feelings. I'm not blindly patriotic.

In any case , i think the whole "U.S greatest country ever" comes from what they once WERE , not what they currently are. U.S is basically the crib/birthplace of Libertarianism , nowadays regardless of what your doctrine tells you.... U.S doesn't handle 180° different from Europe , in fact , if you took a look ... you'd see they're pretty darn similar.

What "bullshit"? My point still stands, the US doesn't really lead the world in anything that attribute to the fact that it would be described "the greatest country". What exacly is it that I'm not "sticking to"? Your off-topic rambling about Denmark does not interest me. Neither does your points regarding Europe, which is not specified in the least. It doesn't help your "point" either. I'm not giving in to your desperate whataboutism. Also, I still don't give a shit about whether you're American, Argentinan or from Zimbabwe. Neither should limit your ability of critical thinking.

What exactly have I denied? Your "ranking of Universities" did absolutely nothing to "decimate" my point. The only thing it did was to showcase that you haven't got a clue of how Universities work at all. Did you care to check up how many Danes study at those high-end universities, and compare population numbers to students, by chance? Universities are landmarks, yes, but they are not exactly reserved institutes. You're retarded.

Well its actually not a peoples vote. but simple facts.. there is a ton of numbers that decide this.. or sort of because USA is rated 1 world country.. even though in many things they score way lower than 3 world country.. they are held up by the small % with emence wealth.. But looking at schools, healthcare, death. homeless. sick, crime equality and many other things they rate very low.. in some things among the lowest.. those things that effects most americans. and many americans pay for each day.. many with there lives.
2019-09-03 01:56
Their lack of taxation in conservative areas is 1st world.
2019-09-03 02:01
Given that your name is facts only please at least educate yourself on the statistics. In what does the US rank the lowest? Very low? How do Americans pay with their lives?
2019-09-03 06:26
I find it funny you attack my facts and even state you dont know in the same message... All the numbers can be found many places. including USA goverment statistics. Normally I say that people that want information that is open and avalible for all to get should just get it and not use the excuse that if someone else dont serve it for them it must be wrong.. However I will give you just a few because im such a nice person of truth and facts. I will start with the last thing. How do americans pay with their lives? since its the most clear. and the fact you dont know is scary if you are american. First there is the level of crime and murder, a result of the politics and the enomours social gap. "The International Center for Prison Studies estimates that America imprisons 716 people per 100,000 citizens (of any age). That’s significantly worse than Russia (484 prisoners per 100,000 citizens), China (121) and Iran (284). The only country that incarcerates a higher percentage of its population than we do is North Korea" again shows how the politic fails those who need help from their leaders but dont get it. its not crime that is the real issues but what lead them to crime, and the fact nothing is done to better it, its a waste of lives and money. After that but also because of the politics and how the USA that is not a democracy focus on the rich and try to hide the masses of poor americans suffering each day. school system might be high. but only for the few, and thus its acutally low compared to even 3 world countires where all get an education no matter what.. 32 million americans is said to be illiterate in some way. It’s no wonder America has one of the highest achievement gaps between high income and low income students because the school system is not done on a national level but local. so places where people have less the schools are left alone in decay. the U.S. has the highest tuition costs of any OECD country. in many American counties, especially in the deep South, life expectancy is lower than in Algeria, Nicaragua or Bangladesh, and many 1000 die because they can not get basic healthcare. ofc poor people, even though every study (real study) show that it save money to give healthcare, than to pay with the cost of not doing so. The U.S. has an infant mortality rate that is higher to comparable nations, as well as the highest teenage-pregnancy rate in the developed world again to do with both education and healthcare, and also the justice system in the Repuplic of USA, where laws are not the same. The U.S. is among only three nations in the world that does not guarantee paid maternal leave (the other two are Papua New Guinea and Swaziland). the U.S. tops out OECD countries in terms of income inequality. Millions of homeless people.. that again often die because of lack of healthcare or crime or just for being homeless. There is places is the US where the state cant afford to run the water so they shut it off for entire city blocks an ereas, all because they sold something off and is in massive dept like the whole country bassicly is. but that leaves again 1000.. of people without something that in 1 world countries is just basic need. water. electricity.. Again this is just a very small message with some stuff.. IF people really want to know they should just open there eyes.. its right in front of them. Its sad so few know what is going on in there own country. not only americans even though its often a massive problem there because the goverment work hard to keep it that way. putting out stuff to help cover it and focus elsewhere. even things that is wrong.. IF you and others want to know stuff.. just find it.. dont sit in messages and say the same thing over and over.. try to actually learn about the subject.
2019-09-03 12:39
My point was that I do know these stats. Thanks for your time but I think the only one that has significant value is the incarceration of people for very petty crimes. This is also somewhat of a racial problem but af am also commit a higher percentage of the crimes. Gun violence happens but is blown out of proportion (I believe no one should have guns). In terms of education. There is a varying degree of quality. However the US ranks 14th on standardized 3 subject exams. Now in terms of primary and secondary education the US is obviously behind some EU countries but still in fact good quality education. Despite having massive costs, return on investment towards degrees are still very high. Also the US has a majority of the top universities. Populations in states such as Mass. NJ, NY, Colorado, and parts of other coastal areas are educated as well if not better than European counterparts. It does not help that the Bible belt refuses to teach evolution and that urban schools have horrible study culture. However, I would say the education is at least top 25 in the world despite having such a large population. There are not 30+ million illiterate peoples. They are simply not able to read or write complex statements (Level 1 of literacy). This is bad but most of this population are elderly. The water and electricity example is overblown as that is extremely rare. Infant mortality is rather high but the number is inflated by certain types of data reporting that includes early preterm births. On the topic of healthcare I would like to point out that though coverage is expensive, the wait times in the US are drastically shorter than EU. The US spends are very large amount on medical research and drug production and thus coverage for insurance is more expensive. (I believe it should be a right and universal). A good example of the quality of US medical expertise is a comparison to the mortality rate of cancer patients in the EU vs US. Also you do exaggerate the amount of people "dying." The life expectancy of the US is very close to European comparable countries and is lowered by the horrible diet that people have. However there is a shift towards healthier living across the US. Homeless people and poor people dont just DIE. If they need to be treated by hospitals, the Hospitals will always treat first and then worry about money. The homeless ratio in the US is lower than the UK, NZ, and Germany. Also homeless mortality rates are similar for other first world countries too. Furthermore I would like to say that though wealth inequality is an issue, the material goods that the poor possess outmatches most 1st world countries. The poor in the US have AC, fridges, TVs, cars and houses. The average household size is substantially larger than Europe. Electronics are cheaper and more affordable, along with gas and food. The minimum wage in most states are 10 dollars now. Also I would like to say that you picked very specific areas that are not representative of the US. The mortality rate in certain deep south counties have to do with racial issues and black on black crime. What can a government do about that? Welfare housing is widespread. Similarly you can find equally bad areas in UK, Germany, and Canada. Key is that the US is a way larger country and also attractive to low income immigrants (a good thing) but that also does skew the data. If you work hard and study well in the US you can very well end up with a 80k+ salary along with a big house and 2 cars. Also it is important to notice that there are states such as Massachusetts New Jersey and parts of Cali, Washington that are at the top of first world conditions. I originally poked fun at you since you mentioned some exaggerated 'facts'but I respect your argument. The US isnt perfect but for most it is a good place.
2019-09-03 18:27
Well to keep it shorter I hope, Im not gonna go into details. said everything is out there. And if you feel the facts and numbers dont mean what they say then that is up to you. This was just a very little portion of the many things and number there is to find about the subject. And the crime thing is far from the only real issue. And in all the points what is important is this simply fact. Yes sure USA have many highs.. Some schools are among the best. some hospitals among the best. some have a very good life. But as statistic and history and everything say. there is also very deep lows. the gap is enormous.. where most 1 world countries have a overall more uniform level USA bassicly go from 100% and then down to very very low.. some have great medical care, others none. some have great schools. others none. ( And to that I dont say 30+ million americans cant read. but have some level of illiterate problem USA goverment statistic.) Again the school issue as the justice system among others suffer from the fact USA is a repuplic and many laws and rules is different from place to place, and schools and how much ressources they get also is different. and that is often based on race and poor ereas. where in most 1 world countries it dosnt matter how much money you got or where you live. the education is the same. again. very high highs. very low lows. And the medical talk is just.. well a muh point.. there is no reason for a nation like america to do it the way they do. it cost way more than actually just change it. but then those medical places. private places and state people dont earn as much. again a thing about a nation in control or leaving the wellbeing of its people to random people and buisnesses.. Including how many die as a result of this. and again you can look at the rosen red way as with schools, sure there are good places. sure a lot of money is spend. there is just so many that never get anything from that. and sure if you get shot something that might happen they will fix you up. but after. you cant pay for your medicine. you cant pay for your follow ups.. and that is where it cost lives. people ropped of medication. ropped of getting what they need.. And again saying EU or Europe as a counter is never a good things. EU/Europe is a ton of different countries including not 1 world countries. its like using africa. very much different depending on where. And about poor people I just dont agree.. well again depending on who you put it against but USA is not high on the list. and everything shows that the way its done actually mean the poor people of USA in a way pay more to live than the counter part in some other countries with a higher tax because the things they actually need to pay for is very much less than what the avarge american need to pay for, so even when paying more in tax when the math is done there is more left because of what you get from that tax. low tax only benifits those who has so much tax no longer matter. comnpared to many 1 world countries USA is low in how the lower income % live and have it and what they can afford and what they get.. And to say low income and mortality rate should ever have anything to do with each other in a 1 world country just show the issue.. in 1 world countries that dont matter. its shouldnt matter. And the water and electicity is not overblown for those that live in it.. again I know that is a normal thing some places in the world but here we talk of it in regards to a 1 world country. its a long time its been going on. the state cant help. the goverment dont help so americans.. people that is born in USA dont have these things. That is the thing we talk about american people having all these issues.. and the numbers do speak for them self.. issues that shouldnt be there and certainly not in this scale. Very high highs. very low lows.. Sadly in the glory of what america think america is its easier to ignore all those americans... And indeed some places are good in the USA.. I dont think that makes it better when you then go look at where its not good..how people can be okay with that in a 1 world country.. to help those with to cars and top 1 world conditions while people.. american families with children dont have water. shit in a toilet that goes nowhere that they then have to empty... people in outer state like island states and such many issues.. people... well yea.. to me that is not a sign of a 1 world country.. when so many of that countries people suffer like people in 3 world countries.. And there is excuses for this and that. and that is not that bad. and well this is because of this.. And thus can it be said for 200 things... but if you need to do that for 200 things. then that is the proof it dont answer.. things dont get fixed when broken.. nowhere is perfect.. but here we talk about things that stay the same for a large number of people. and conditions that you dont see in 1 world countries.. and for those americans, it dont matter that if you are born right and live in the right place you can have 2 cars and you mother can get the medicine she needs, and you little brother can go to school and learn something.. because that is not there america.

Problems in US (my opinion) - high murder rates for a 1st world country - extremely expensive and unpopular healthcare - high social inequality between blacks and whites - most of people hate immigrants - often mass shootings - like wars

From my understanding. Healthcare is affordable is you get insurance. The problem is america is so free that a lot of people choose to keep their money instead of health insurance and then when they get sick is when the bills roll in.

Basically a main reason why universal healthcare is now being heavily fought for here. The demand and advocacy of universal healthcare saw resurgence in 2015-2016 thanks to that 1000 year old wizard man named Bernie Sanders. And because of him, every major Dem is now advocating universal healthcare as part of their policies (well maybe except Biden)

" high murder rates for a 1st world country " Pretty much just blacks skewing the numbers. They make up 13% of the population and commit 51% of the murders.

All you said was mad rambling that's just as stupid as OP's logic. There's no such thing as the "1st world" or "3rd world". It was a way to categorize the allies of the US, the 2nd world being the socialist states and it's allies and the 3rd world being the rest.. developing countries. Your entire argument is invalid, you got baited an butthurt over logic that wasn't based on anything remotely close to reality, and called your side of it "the truth".

Doesn't change the fact. And you're wrong. The original idea of 1st 2nd and 3rd world stemmed from WWII alliances. The allies were 1st world, axis were 3rd world, and everyone else was 2nd world. Are you seriously trying to say that Germany and Japan are 3rd world countries? The definitions have changed. Grow up

The definitions HAD changed.* It hasn't been used since the cold war, and it would make absolutely zero sense to use after the fall of the Berlin wall as the wide majority of the "2nd world" countries aren't socialist puppet states anymore. It's a lazy, immature, way for uneducated people to label certain parts of the world/countries to their liking. Grow up.
