Bill Bennett: Aborting Black Babies Would Reduce Crime Rate

“I do know that it’s true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could — if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down. That would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky.”

Bill Bennett, gamble-holic, buffoon and former GOP Education Secretary

The president believes the comments were not appropriate.

— White House press secretary Scott McClellan, regarding Bennett’s inherently and undeniably racist statement

Attention African-American Republicans:

“Bill Bennett wasn’t saying that we should abort all black babies. Only a monster would even suggest such a thing. He was simply pointing out the obvious fact that black people are inherently criminal. He’s not some sort of racist that approves of abortions, he’s a racist who hates abortion. Big difference.

    I’m not surprised by any of the comments made by the the obvious “white” forum. To attack blacks for supposedly doing the same things that white people have been doing for centuries. This country is foundeded on the white raping, pillaging and killing. First the murder of the majority of the Native American population not to mention the enslavement of the Africans, but I’m sorry the white man hadn’t made those things illegal yet so I guess those things don’t count. Get off your pedastal white man and realize that your hands are just as bloody if not more than the “black” criminals in this country, the only difference is that they haven’t figured out a way to assure that their crimes go unpunished like yours.

    How do you know adam and eve were white? Is it because of the movies produced by white people? Just wondering? Oh, as far as those crime statistics it seems to be that blacks and whites are even because whites overall population is more than the blacks so of course its gonna seem like the blacks have more criminals amongst there race.

    The real evil in America is not the White man, the real evil in America is the Black man, the real evil in America is not the millions of immigrants that come here ever year.

    The real evil in America is the idea that underlines the make up of the entire Western Hemisphere. That idea is called White Supremacy. It is an idea builded upon a premise that White must rule over all the races of the world.

    This premise is not based upon a conclusion by White men that they are more intelligent. Indeed they are not. The premise is not based upon a conclusion by White men that they are are the chosen ones by God. For God and Christiany was created by White men to help them deal with the reality of death.

    The doctrine of White Surpemacy is based upon an idea that White men must rule over all the color people of the world simply because of the color of their skin.

    In order for United States to be a great nation, the doctrine of White Surpemacy must die an evil death. America will not last the thousands of years other great nations have lasted until this doctrine is defeated.

    People should judged individually by the content of their character, not simply by the color of their skins. Racism, Bigotry, & Prejudice has no place in a great Nation of many, many people and culture.

    I pray for the day that all prejudice will no longer exist.

    This is spiraling to a feces-throwing match that you’d see at the zoo. Again folks, look at what Bill Bennett’s implying:

    Bennett’s implying that skin color is the only trait that matters in predicting a child’s crime rate.

    **Granted, in this world today, if a child is born black, he may have more of a chance committing a crime than a white.**

    As a black, I have NO problem saying so. Why is that? As a student of criminology, I know that in this world today, blacks are often born poorer than whites. Born poor, raised poor, one has lesser chances at a higher education than if one was born in a middle-class society. Thus, one is more often going to turn to crime than a child reared in a middle-class environment.

    You want the right way to reduce crime?

    Focus on education.

    Put more cops on the street.

    Increase the number of social workers.

    Run the social work system by MBA’s who’d run it like a business focused on positive results.

    Shore up the borders.

    Teach the poor, care for the mentally disabled.

    And here’s a dash of crazy – institute a government-sponsored type of religion based on chivalry, civic-duty and honor. Nutty? Maybe. But it could work. And it’s a helluva better idea than those who’re proud of themselves merely because of their skin color.

    Black and white pridists… you’re all human. More importantly, you’re all American.

    Wow! I’m originally from Canada, and moved to the U.S 2 years ago. I am in awe of the racial tension that still exist in America. And I am overwhelmed by how ignorant caucsians remain. The comment by Bennett, has the rationale of Hitler, or Sadam…genoicide in the 21st century, in America. And we wonder why the American flag is burning in so many countries. No amount of crime in Modern U.S.A by African Americans will ever top the sadistic and morally apprehensible crimes of Slavery, and the Trans-atlantic slave trade, the rapes, the murders, the genocide to blacks and Native Americans. This country is drenched in blood. If you all knew your history you would know that the Africans began civiliation – medicine-astronomy-mathematics-philosophy that we still teach today and put a white face on it. Life, history did not start for the AFrican when you kidnapped them off the Western coast of Africa. We had a civilizaion, culture before we were your slaves Oh! and those social programs, check your facts- Equal oppotunity Programs and Affirmative action- has helped the caucasian woman, extensively more than the African American. I’m so angry that so many African woman and men have died in your wars of greed,hate,and false pride, defending this country, to have people like you turn around and spit in their face. I remember white people use to say( and probably still do) “Go Back To Africa”. And maybe it’s time.

    I don’t live in America and I have never been there, but it seems to me that it has a corrupt system. I am only 14 but I am old enough to realise that America isn’t as great to livein as people always say. This polititions words upset me as an african and showed me how twisted the people that lead great countries are. Someone has to put a stop to this, and like someone earlier said, stop pointing the finger and try to deal with the issue.
