Problem with the Truth

I posted a blog with this title earlier in the week and it contained some errors. This update corrects those errors. My apologies.

                         ========

The main problem with the truth today is that if the truth does not fit a person’s ideology, they do not believe it. Sad, but true.

Here are a few statements I think are true. 

People in charge make the rules.

If you want the rules to change the rules, you need to get an education and prepare yourself to get a leadership position.

According to our census, ancestry of people who claim to be white traces to Europe, northern Africa, and the Middle East. Some Hispanics also claim to be white.

White people were the majority in this country from its inception to the present.

White people still hold the majority of leadership positions in most parts of the country.

Hispanics will become the largest racial demographic in the USA in about 20 years.

The Asians population is growing fast and will become the largest racial demographic in about 40 years.

Blacks will still be a minority in this country for the foreseeable future.

End of facts.

The following are my opinions.

The demographics of the Dallas police department matches the demographics of the community. This is a good thing and the practice needs to spread to other cities.

Police officers should have continuous training and a better understanding of the feelings in their communities. Police officers need community support.

People should avoid police confrontations. Both the police and the person confronted have a responsibility to keep the confrontation non-violent.

To keep the peace and capture perpetrators, the police will respond the same with Asians and Hispanics being the majority as they did when whites were the majority.

The safest way for everyone in a police confrontation is to show respect for each other.

  1. I like facts. I enjoy hearing the opinions of others. I love learning and I would have learned a lot from this if you and I had not already had a conversation about demographics a few weeks ago and I learned from that conversation what I would have learned today. Of course I did some fact checking after our conversation. I like facts.
