In an interview with ABC News, Bennett said that anyone who knows him knows he isn't racist. He said he was merely extrapolating from the best-selling book "Freakonomics," which posits the hypothesis that falling crimes rates are related to increased abortion rates decades ago. "It would have worked for, you know, single-parent moms; it would have worked for male babies, black babies," Bennett said.First off, let us get this straight right now -- Bill Bennett is RACIST. From the above statement, I surmise that he is not only racist but unapologetic about it. Don’t fall for his Crapo cola. Talk of race can always get dicey as we sometimes seem to be debating from two separate sets of opinion depending on our biases. However what we need in a situation like this, is adherence to truth and acceptance that billy boy's commentary are not factual. Below are some of the things we all can agree upon:
- The vast, overwhelming majority of black Americans are not poor, much less criminals.-
- Race plays no role in whether someone will commit a crime.-
- The majority of crimes (all types included) in America are committed by white people (DUH! They are the majority).
