    Thanks for posting, Matt. Lots of good info there. That helped dispel some myths that I had previously believed.

    Actually America has adopted the opposite of your strategy. Give money to the rich.

    That has been epic for Detroit.

    Twice in a row you've educated the shit out of me. This thread and the thread where you researched the U of C having their 'opinions bought' by the energy sector.

    Happy to help here but the other thread, credit is due to Thales for bringing up the notion, I simply supplied some media to his claims and fuck was I disappointed to find out there's some substance to those claims.

    Good post MSommers. I knew some of that, a prevoius business partner was Metis and I ran into some surprises as to what I had thought previously about natives/metis thanks to him, but a lot of those links had new info for me.

    How can you justify saying that the world faces a problem with liberal extremism, when corporations are gaining more and more power?

    Corporations are amoral, which makes them right wing in philosophy.

    It shows an over-representation of a racial group in the prison system. Statistically speaking they should represent the same or about the same proportion they compose of the general population, therefore about 3%.

    Secondly racism isn't defined by individual or general attitudes against a specific group. Its when there is marginalization systematically against a specific racial or ethnic group.

    The source of that over-representation is due to a multiple factors that have been well-documented in research. Among them more punitive sentences for Aboriginals in courts and enhanced surveillance of Aboriginals by police.

    The same type of over-representation is shown in the United States for African Americans but not to the same extent for Aboriginals in Canada.

    Here is one source that articulates this

    An over representation of an ethnic group in the prison system does not prove the system, by design or otherwise is racially biased. It may be that the ethnic group is overly represented because they simply commit more crimes.

    I'm not saying issues don't exists. Longer sentences, stricter parole for aboriginals, those are all things that should be fair regardless of race. But there has to be some ownership here. If the aboriginal community is massively over represented in the prison system, I'd suggest that while there may be external issues , the root cause is probably behaviour by members of the Aboriginal Community.

    Do you think this behaviour differs from others because of some kind of special DNA gene?

    (BTW I didnt really read the thread and have some members on ignore )

    Completely agree. And I don't think anyone is saying that this hasn't been (in some way or form) shaped by what has happened in the past.

    The DOJ report paints the City of Ferguson as racist. Hopefully the cities police department and judges are dismissed.

    Do you think Edmonton's and Calgary's police forces profile the native population?

    Will anyone post on topic or will they do otherwise?
    Profiles work for a reason, that's why they are called profiles. It gives the officers a set of attributes to look for when dealing with suspects or just walking the beat.

    If Natives what to change their perception in society they should try to start functioning with in it instead of fighting it. Its not about assimilation and trying to wipe out their culture its about being functioning members that aren't a drain of public funds. Natives have so much opportunity given to them by the government in the form of grants and other subsidies yet they piss it away. Its pathetic that they continually bite the hand that feeds them and expect for things to change when they put no effort in to helping themselves.

    WOW, racism at it's finest.

    A culture disenfranchises the natives, and then blames the natives for the results. Which is the exact same thing that happened in Ferguson, except it is the black community that was mistreated.
