Isn't it odd that white football players are rarely arrested.  I know they make up a minority of football players (33%) but blacks make up 12% of the total population and account for about half of all arrests.  Shouldn't some white football players be arrested just to keep everything fair?

Are college players preparing to join the NFL where 24 players have been arrested since the Ssuperbowl, all appearing to be black?

Makes you wonder.

Work on your comparisons, Chuck Farley.

"Isn't it odd that white football players are rarely arrested.[sic]  I know they make up a minority of football players (33%) but blacks make up 12% of the total population and account for about half of all arrests.  Shouldn't some white football players be arrested just to keep everything fair?"

 

If white football players "are rarely arrested" and if blacks make up "about half of all arrests," then this means that black football players also are "rarely arrested."  Half is equal to half, isn't it?

 

Yes, I know Chuck meant "comparatively," but in his eagerness to unload on black players, that nuance escaped him.

You're about arrogant.

That statement should be clear, and needs no correction from you.

Not arrogant, just a proponent of clear and correct communication.
