American Indians have the highest poverty rate in the US. Hispanics have the second highest poverty rate.
They just don't have as good lobbyists and a well-oiled victim PR machine.

Start putting money into the minority population's bank accounts and give them equality to use it to profit themselves and the community, by giving them free education and equal opportunity in all employment fields.
Are you saying that only people of a certain color should receive money and free education?

I will be happier to see Donald Trump's undoing from the coming tsunami of tax, legal and financial woes than from a conviction from an impeachment that will no consequences for him.
As far as 70 million voters for Trump, well, there are over 90 million Americans with an IQ of 89 and under. Looking at the rioters, I would say the majority of those 70 million came from that 90 million.
They'll look for another Messiah. Their standards are not very high, so hopefully their next cult leader will be easy to defeat at the polls.

Trump's rallies at stadiums are cheerful, peaceful and cordial. Everybody basically cheers and has a good time.
The only security needed are the guys that keep adoring fans at a safe distance from the podium.

Worst president in the history of the US.
How in the world did a 6-time bankrupt, 5-time draft dodging, pathological lying narcissist become the darling of American conservatives?
How in the world do Republicans still support this failed human and wannabe dictator?
I remember reading a few decades ago that the US could end by being divided into several smaller countries. I can see that in the future, The US may not be around forever as it is now.
The sight of redneck rioters who believe in QAnon and other nonsense storming the capitol should be a wakeup call. Normal people need to define a new boundary for a normal society and push the nutcases back to the Confederacy in the south. If you want to fly Confederate flags, move there and make your own country.

Look, none of this is going to work, so don't worry about it.
Bureaucrats, politicians, public health people are incompetent and people will continue to share the gift of Covid in packed trains, offices, stores, restaurants, izakayas and on the street.
This pandemic will continue for a couple more years. Many more people will die and survivors of symptomatic effects will have lung issues and other long-lasting symptoms.
Just accept it. You can only try to take care of yourself.
Even after being inoculated, it will take about 6 weeks for the body to develop the full antibody resistance.
Even after being inoculated, people will have a greatly reduced chance of developing symptoms, but will still be capable of shedding the virus to others. Those vaccinated will still need to wear masks and and stay away from others until the rest of the population is vaccinated. People aren't likely to do that.
They're going to think that vaccination made them and others safe, but that is not the case.
So, just accept you're going to have a crappy life and economy for years. Complaining won't change this outcome.
The people who refuse to vaccinate and refuse to wear masks and keep distance will just extend the pandemic for years until almost everyone has caught it. But, natural immunity appears to only last about 6 months after infection.
The antisocial, ganko types (like in the west) who refuse to wear masks are going to keep their entire society under the foot of Covid for years.
You have to wear a mask and keep distance. One without the other is useless.
It's interesting that contact tracing has fallen between the cracks. The purpose is to learn where people are catching it. You can search and search and not find data on where people are getting infected. most of it is just speculation.
Obviously, it's everywhere - stores, restaurants, schools, trains, bars, churches (in the west). I've been lucky and not caught it even though I'm in one of the worst areas on the planet that's filled with idiots who think not wearing a mask is a sign of their Trump cult membership.
But, I don't eat in restaurants, don't go to bars, only shop when there are the fewest people, and I stay far away from them and wash my hands and drop my clothes in the washer after being outside. People are overrated anyway. I don't need them anymore.
In summary, we're screwed for the next few years. Accept it so you're not constantly let down and hopefully find a life that you can survive within. Stupid people will be affecting more life more than usual in the next few years.

Every developed nation on earth has a public health system. They all have existed for decades with the purpose of planning for a worst case scenario, a pandemic, and other lesser issues. But a pandemic was and should have been their main focus.
And after decades of having meetings, taking salaries, traveling and dining, writing reports, dining, traveling more reports, more hotels and dinners and lunches and conferences and airline tickets and salaries and more salaries -- when they are called to perform and act, they have all fallen on their faces.
All of them.

The issue is truth.
Trump lies constantly. His outrageous and unsubstantiated lies damage the credibility of a nation and society in general so greatly that outlandish lying has become normalized by other politicians and his supporters as justifiable.
When normal people have to justify curtailing the actions of a sociopathic narcissist, the crazy people have won.
If your child lied as much, as often and as outrageously as Donald Trump does, would you just accept it and justify the child as having the right to be an antisocial monster?
Heck, I've been censored here for saying something that was completely true and based on FBI data straight from the government website, but the censor here didn't know the facts thought it was something discriminatory.

Gates has donated over $1.75 billion to healthcare and vaccination programs. He can save lives, but can't save the ignorant fools who don't take two minutes to research the truth, instead, they believe and pass ridiculous Internet trash talk and nonsense.

Some people still do, like the people in Congress voting for impeachment.
Those who vote against impeachment need to be identified so they can be be defeated in their next election.

Good points. Your examples aren't violent yahoos, though, are they? It's the low IQ that turn into mobs who are a problem and the sheer numbers of them will continue to grow with the population.
3 ( +3 / -0 )
Yes. Population growth has increased the numbers of low IQ people in the world who have phones and can access the internet.
16% of any population are one standard deviation below median IQ and are considered to be mentally challenged.
For example, the US population (median IQ 98) is 328 million, so over 52 million people in the US are 83 IQ or less. They are eligible for Social Security disability due to their mental deficiency. People at this IQ are unable to reason, determine fact from fiction, understand simple theoretical ideas or process information correctly, and are no eligible to join the military because there is no job they can be taught to perform competently, yet they can access social media and are considered a targeted, prime demographic since they can be relieved of their money easily.
Japan has 105 IQ average, so 16% of 126 million is 20 million people with an IQ of 89 or less.
