Hiring more non-white officers is difficult because so many would-be recruits have criminal records, New York police commissioner Bill Bratton has said.

“We have a significant population gap among African American males because so many of them have spent time in jail and, as such, we can’t hire them,” Bratton said in an interview with the Guardian.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Funny how you believe that without even asking for proof.

If I asserted the opposite, you wouldn't believe it.

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

It is a well known fact that black males are incarnated at a much higher rate . We have had many discussions about .I don't know why you would think his statement is racist it only stands to reason more black apllicants would have records

I am not arguing why they are incarnated more only that it is a fact

The problem I have is this type of conversation never comes up when it's white people. It's always blacks this or hispanics that, or even asians. It's like it's too hard to just say, we're reaching out and trying to get more applicants that are from a different ethnicity.

He was probably asked why they are not hiring more blacks and gave an honest answe . You are way too sensitive

Now if the root had published and article that bemoaned the fact that less blacks where in law enforcement because of our racist judicial system you would have been high fiving. Same answer

Not really, just pointing out how this doesn't happen outside communities of color. If someone went to the Catholic Church and asked why they don't do more for the youth of America, do you honestly think the answer would be, well you know we had that big scandal a few years back and several of our priests molested thousands of children so yeah, we have to hang back a little bit.

It relates because it's showing how when it comes to minorities, there's no issues painting in broad strokes. It's "truth" without context.

He just gave a fact.

A fact without any type of context or explanation. Basically he just said we can't hire black people because most of them are criminals.
