Re: “Black Missouri drivers 75 percent more likely to be stopped by police than white drivers, new report from attorney general finds

These numbers aren't confirmation of racism. They're confirmation of the data on socio-economic status of blacks.

Are liberals so ignorant they're unaware that since 2008, blacks have lost more jobs and wealth, per capita, than whites?

It only stands to reason they have more mechanical issues with their cars causing more stops. Like that woman who stopped her car in the highway when she ran out of gas. If she hadn't been harmed by the banks Obama's justice department protects (holder won't prosecute, lynch worked for the Fed), she might have afforded gas. Same goes for the fix it tickets for brake light bulbs and expired tags.

It isn't racist that poor people have less to spend on car repairs. It is racist how banks Obama protects harmed blacks. But then again, he didn't grow up with blacks and maybe doesn't understand that profiting from racism is racist. He just needs a teaching moment.

Re: “Black Missouri drivers 75 percent more likely to be stopped by police than white drivers, new report from attorney general finds

If I too chose to misinterpret the supporting data I could say that whites are discriminated against because Hispanic, Asian and other drivers have a lower index. In reading and understanding the numbers I can tell "the index" is merely higher for lower populations and yet other minorities still have a lower percentage of pullover resulting in search and seizures.
It's pretty clear this article finds a predetermined observation and either didn't understand the data or hoped you wouldn't look that deep.

Hello Every One, I am mrs anais harvey From texas U.S.A, I quickly want to use this medium to shear a testimony on how God directed me to a Legit and real loan lender who have transformed my life from grass to grace, from being poor to a rich woman who can now boast of a healthy and wealthy life without stress or financial difficulties. After so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was scammed the sum of $5,200 i became so desperate in getting a loan from a legit loan lender online who will not add to my pains, then i decided to contact a friend of mine who recently got a loan online, we discussed about the issue and to our conclusion she told me about a man called Mr Aliton Bernard Jones who is the C.E.O of BERNARD INVESTMENTS LIMITED So i applied for a loan sum of (320,000.00USD) with low interest rate of 2%, so the loan was approved easily without stress and all the preparations where made concerning the loan transfer and in less than two(2) days the loan was deposited into my bank so i want to advice any one in need of a loan to quickly contact him via: (bernardinvestmentlimited@hotmail.com) he does not know am doing this i pray that God will bless him for the good things he has done in my life.

I love this place, the staff and owners. Wishing them well whether they're moving, remodeling, relocating or watching TV at home. <3

The point is "Bob" that if they quit contributing disproportionately to the crime rate, maybe they won't be disproportionately targeted.

I was just there Saturday!!! It was busy as usual and the staff have no appearance that they would no longer be open. Very unfortunate!!! Their groupon deals were the best!

Gareth Algore (Geez, another troll name), what does the statistic about blacks committing murder have to do with traffic stops? You just pushed the racism button, big time. Black=crime. I sincerely hope you aren't a police officer. Pull people over because there is a visible violation...only.

The glass mugs are still there at Mugs Up. Indeed, it's pretty much the same as it was more than 50 years ago.

Oh dang. We actually drove to Westport last night, hoping for Thai, and saw the sign on the door. Ended up at McCoy's instead. Really sad about Thai Place, though. I loved their small-plate nights.

Gareth,

Read the internet and pull your head out of your ass. Blacks are 13% of the population and commit 52% of all murders. Of course they get stopped more - they commit crimes at a much higher rate than whites.

Re: “Update: Thai Place in Westport closed for good

The quality at this location had decreased dramatically recently. KC really needs a good thai restaurant. I haven't been to Thai Place on 87th in ages, but they used to be really good.

Hot Basil Thai is DIRTY. So many bugs in that place.

Read the article, genius. Whites are actually more likely to be carrying contraband.

Re: “Update: Thai Place in Westport closed for good

The last time I went the service was so awful that we left. Prior to that, the food seemed to go down in quality each time we ordered. Midtown needs a good, affordable Thai place. Even better if it delivers.

Oh, man, that's terrible! Nice location, good Thai (not the best in town but certainly good), and a comfortable, casual atmosphere. Unfortunate. :(
