Whats the likleyhood of any of these crimes happening? Personally, in the United States, I have never expirienced any crimes and only know one person who had their house broken into once. It seems like many people (my mom is a great example) feel like threats are imminent, and you can't take any risks (and yes, it may be risky going in the same elevator as a black person) but many are worth taking, since its not like every black person is a rapist or even 1% or .01%, and its not like all rapists are black. Also, overall, in juries at court it seems like they are more partial to a white person than another race, so they have an unfair advantage which would also add to the reason why more racial people are in jail. But seriously, its not happening so frequently that people have to be so outrageous over everything. Let it live. Thats why I loved living in Sweden so much, it had all the good things of America and none of the bad things, and functions a lot better than here.
