Original Article

Posted By: orlean, 6/23/2021 3:39:45 PM

The number of Black people killed in traffic crashes rose 23% in 2020 compared to the year prior, according to early estimates from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Out of the 38,680 people that were killed in traffic crashes last year, 7,494 of them were Black -- the highest percentage increase out of any race. White people had the largest number of traffic deaths last year at 29,092, but the number increased by just 4% from the year prior.

That's because cars KNOW when someone black is driving them, and contrive to make crashes more deadly to blacks. I would bet the car doesn't deploy its airbag, the brakes fail deliberately, maybe even the car speeds up on its own when Driven By Black (DBB). Or, this is just a stupid ******* article written by a lying press about something with no significance whatsoever.

It's directly caused by white supremacists like Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse. Well, either that or bad driving by the folks who got in the accidents. I wonder which?

Oh Em Gee, MORE systemic racism! White and Asian auto manufacturers are selling defective vehicles to Black folks further victimizing them! Covid, Big Pharma, cops, and now car manufacturers! Will this genocide never end?

Not surprised. I drive I-75 every day and I see people who can't maintain their lane because they are looking at their phone. Black & white in my area do this about equally. But, speeding, following too close and changing lanes unsafely, the ratio is 60% of blacks doing that stuff to 40% whites.

This article started with their conclusion (Black people die in car accidents more) then went and found data to support it. As usual, they have found yet another thing that has a greater effect on Black, brown, and other minorities than other people as a percentage of the population. May, just maybe these people are just worse drivers or feel that traffic laws do not apply to them. The race baiters, activists, and usual suspects will claim that it is racist infrastructure, racist roads, racist traffic laws, racist other drivers, racist everything else. It is never the responsibility of the actual accident victim (if they are a minority).

Those Black traffic death victims were not pedestrians who were hit by motor vehicles to any extent, as the article seems to indicate. But in actuality were drivers operating motor vehicles, and their passengers, who for the most part were speeding when the wreck occurred or were in violation of some other traffic laws, even pertinent ones like wearing seatbelts. This is really a puff piece for Biden's proposed infrastructure proposals that will not stop Black traffic deaths and serious injuries, unless Black folks stop driving motor vehicles or stop violating local traffic laws.

#6 - And the rationale to justify the statistics is ridiculous. "High-stakes driving" because hourly workers can't afford to be late to their job even in good times, but the economic downturn is now impairing their decision-making capabilities.

They don’t obey any other laws so why bother with traffic laws. Where I live the vast majority of people who are tailgating or driving aggressively at high speeds are black. And they are mostly young men. It goes with the statistics on black on black crime.

Nope....its not the cars. It's the racist speed limits and traffic laws. could be the cars. If birds, math, classical music and eye glasses are racists, I guess cars could be too.

This fits Occam's Razor to a tee. From what I have seen blacks drive extremely aggressively and at high speeds. There are obviously going to create more accidents and more severe injuries to themselves and others. It's the logical and simple reason.

does that mean that the highways and byways are trying to annihilate our black brothers and sisters? if so, I make a motion that we dig up all roads and melt the asphalt back to its original substance.

I have had long-held opinion based upon earlier daily personal contact with traffic offenders that the majority of drivers of any ethnicity or race who had multiple speeding citations had achieved lower educations than a average as well as other measurements of success, The roadway was the one place they could excel,

We need more information. Are they talking about blacks on drugs in stolen cars or pedestrians ? No matter where you live, you encounter reckless drivers. You will also see drug dealing in every parking lot, mostly to people driving cars.

Rather than speculating, what was the statistical breakdown on speeding and/or impaired driving as the suspected causes of the accidents? Was there a change in time of day? What was the employment status breakdown of the drivers?

First Lady Jill Biden is tipped to visit Japan for the Tokyo Olympics on a solo trip in place of President Joe Biden, the Yomiuri Shimbun daily reported Sunday. The two countries are seeking ways for the president’s wife to attend the opening ceremony, set for July 23, as well as meet with Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and other senior diplomatic officials during her stay, according to sources cited by the outlet. The Yomiuri Shimbun reports the lone dispatch of Jill Biden is regarded as a signal honor for the hosts that “sends a message of the importance of the relationship with Japan.”

To Trump, the unkindest cut of all was when William Barr stepped forward and declared that there had been no widespread fraud in the 2020 election, just as the president was trying to overturn Joe Biden’s victory by claiming that the election had been stolen.

Dozens of women went topless for New York City's annual Dyke March Saturday—as smaller than usual crowds turned out for Sunday's main Pride parade amid COVID restrictions. The Dyke March—which celebrates lesbian pride—began at Bryant Park and finished at Washington Square Park, where couples splashed around in the fountain and embraced. For some campaigners showing breasts in public is a form of protest to assert the right of women to dress as they wish. The main Pride parade Sunday is being touted as a virtual event, with a smaller scale march across three blocks. Organizers predict 'millions' will watch on TV.

After claiming to be “personally” offended over accusations the drag queen-loving U.S. military is woke, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley said, “I want to understand white rage, and I’m white.” Oh, okay, because that’s not woke at all. This happened during congressional testimony on Wednesday. Then he added this bone-chilling explanation: “What is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America?” The implication being it was “white rage.”

Members of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops are trying to clarify their position and deal with the confusion caused by their announcement last week that they would create a teaching document on the Holy Eucharist or the meaning of Communion. The statement caused many to speculate that the church was looking to deny President Joe Biden and other pro-abortion Catholic politicians from receiving Communion. The speculation was misplaced, said the bishops.“There will be no national policy on withholding Communion from politicians,” the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said in a Q&A document dated June 21.

But I also want to make sure that this hysteria, you know, that this doesn’t drive a hysteria and that we look at these numbers in context so that we can make responsible decisions about what to allocate in that context."

Everyone in North Korea is heartbroken over leader Kim Jong Un's apparent weight loss, said an unidentified resident of Pyongyang quoted on the country's tightly controlled state media, after watching recent video footage of Mr Kim. The rare public comment on Mr Kim's health comes after foreign analysts noted in early June that the autocratic leader, who is believed to be 37, appeared to have lost a noticeable amount of weight. "Seeing respected general secretary (Kim Jong Un) looking emaciated breaks our people's heart so much," the man said in an interview aired by state broadcaster
