    That same statement applies to YOUR party of choice also....... If you really paid attention to what politicians tell us, you'd know that.... They all, regardless of political brand, promise any and everything to their base..and to whatever group they are pandering to....like Latinos....or the "black vote".. ......but we both know how that works out..... Try being honest sometime and admit that YOUR party doesn't keep any "promise" to make your life, or anyone's life, any better or easier either...... (unless you're a billionaire)

    So you're saying that if Republicans ran all the cities there wouldn't be any crime??... Surely you're not that ignorant as to be believe that are you?...
    Wait a minute.....you "think" all crime in cities is totally the fault of Democrats...... Yeah, you may be that ignorant to be believe Republican controlled cities would be crime free.....

    I think it's rather pathetic that they all clamor for more tax cuts for the wealthy....and lower to no taxes on Corporations.....but whine and cry about the low wage earners who don't make enough to pay federal taxes.....and think they should be paying their "fair share".....

    Donald Trump could purchase their place of employment and slash their pay by two thirds and cut off their benefits and they would still support "the Donald" because he told them he was making "America great".......

    They whine all the time about Democrats giving Clinton a pass on every scandal, real or imagined, all the while giving a pass to Trump no matter how outrageous or stupid his ideas and statments are.....or how much his business pratices have hurt his own employees and contractors.... They've become so enamored with him and are convinced he can do no wrong and he alone can make their everyday life so much better.... Hmmm.... Just exactly what a good authoritarian likes to see... Shouldn't be to much longer before they start saluting him.."Heil Trump!"........lol.....

    What are the odds of that happening??.. I think we all know the answer to that....

    If Corporate America wanted a simplified tax code it would have been done all ready.... The fact is....they benefit from the tax code as it is......which is the largest reason that you will never see it change in any meaningful way....

    And the Republicans will "fix" the horrible school systems in poor inner city neighborhoods???

    Ha!...what a joke that is..... The only thing Republicans say we can afford is more tax breaks for the already wealthy....and more Wars around the world.........

    African-Americans, by and large, vote Democratic......so what you're saying in your statement is that Blacks, by and large, are "uneducated"....... .. You're not a "closet" racist ........or are you?.... Maybe you should re-read your post and clarify your point better...

    Case in point; Indianapolis. Always has a super high crime rate, ran by Republicans until very recently.

    I'm sure that's very true.

    But....

    http://www.city-data.com/city/Indianapolis-Indiana.html (Scroll down form crime rates.)

    All cities have areas where you can walk safely at any time. Detroit, Chicago, Newark, etc. That doesn't change the fact that there's a high crime rate, and that's whether a D or an R is in charge.

    Yes it does.... I think everyone knows people with degrees that don't have the sense to come in out of the rain......and by the same token there are people who haven't even finished high school that are far smarter than some with higher degrees....... So yes, I agree it depends on what "educated" means.... Going to college does not always translate to being "educated"....for example, most posters on here think they know more about the Constitution than the highly educated Supreme court justices.....or they know more about foreign affairs than those trained and educated in such fields of endeavor and so on....
    Going by your chart, which depicts whites holding degrees over other minorities by far, should mean that our society should be far more advanced and capable of solving the problems we face...or even better, we shouldn't even be in the situation we are....and furthermore, what it shows is that all these highly "educated" white people who are in control of how the system "works" are responsible for the corruption and greed and the sad state this nation is in.....AND...if whites are so much more "educated" than blacks or other minorities.....why haven't they realized that the political system....including the Republican party, has failed them....but no....those "educated" white people keep flicking to the first "snake oil salesman" that promises that more tax cuts for the wealthy and getting rid of any Corporate regulation is going to make the average citizens life all great and wonderful.........

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you are "educated" enough to know what the poster meant with his statement regarding "educated blacks"......
