BLM has been Bad for Blacks

The Reuters news service fired Isaac Kriegman for writing this essay on why Black Lives Matter has been bad for Blacks.

Here is the latest example of Black suffering from systemic racism:

A ProPublica analysis found that traffic cameras in Chicago disproportionately ticket Black and Latino motorists. But city officials plan to stick with them — and other cities may adopt them too.

ProPublica is a nonprofit newsroom that investigates abuses of power.

… But for all of their safety benefits, the hundreds of cameras that dot the city [of Chicago] — and generate tens of millions of dollars a year for City Hall — have come at a steep cost for motorists from the city’s Black and Latino neighborhoods. A ProPublica analysis of millions of citations found that households in majority Black and Hispanic ZIP codes received tickets at around twice the rate of those in white areas between 2015 and 2019.

The consequences have been especially punishing in Black neighborhoods, which have been hit with more than half a billion dollars in penalties over the last 15 years, contributing to thousands of vehicle impoundments, driver’s license suspensions and bankruptcies, according to ProPublica’s analysis.

So the robot cameras are racist?

The obvious conclusion from this is that Blacks are unable or unwilling to live according to the norms of a civilized society. Complaints about racism are just demands to subsidize bad behavior.

Update: Studies show:

Diversity training doesn’t work, ditto with microaggression training, implicit bias training, or any mandatory DEI training
Most Whites have no antagonism towards Blacks, and believe that Blacks have suffered from systemic racism. But when Whites have to take classes on the subject, they see that it is all BS.

For a long time, I thought that there were examples of Blacks being mistreated. But no one can seem to find any. All of the big BLM examples are Black criminals who are treated much better than they deserve.
