That makes no sense whatsoever. Do th math. Black males 14-35 make up 3% of US population. Yet are responsible for over 50% of murders and other violent crimes. That’s exactly why the incarceration rate is what it is for that specific demographic.

Now the initial question that lumps all blacks into a single category…are they inherently more violent….id have to say if you took a random 10,000 person sample from every race, blacks would likely be more likely to react violently than others. It’s a cultural difference that is planted very early on in their lives. But are all blacks violent, no. No all of anything can be labeled by an emotional marker.

Unfortunately the major has you that for years about people of african heritage…..but the truth is the ones who push those thoughts are insecure and know civilization started in Africa over 200000 years ago every rule law and mathmatical equation iscrooted in Africa….Any person with a brain could see if you try that hard to condem a whole race of people there reason far beyond…..the illusion…..

Noted your comment. No racism intended; just chasing the facts. With Africa having the longest habitation by man and arguably more natural resources than any other continent why is it the poorest and most violent place on earth?

So far that strategy works.

A long time ago? How many wars have “WHITE PEOPLE BEEN IN” ? INSLAVED a people, genocide on Native Americans, on aborigines in Australia, bombing of Japan, Germany, Russia 100million dead World war 1 and 2 Vietnam over a million murdered in a false war, Cambodia, colonialism in all of Africa Asia from India to China , the Caribbean, South America, colonialism, war in drugs over 50,000 killed in Mexico in last 10 years though policy, war on terror. ….white people sadly safely tucked in suburbs…promoting policy to kill more people, everywhere, all the time…cancer, drug industry, cooperate crime, eviomental polution…please study History and current events

And when called out for discrimination and racism, just bring up patriotism and the flag…deflect-deflect-deflect!

I wouldn’t even deny the crime statistics showing that the black community has a disproportionately high crime rate for its population level. Black people have no problem accepting that.

Our problem is with whites who refuse to accept the fact that race statistics are the third biggest form of lie, and should always be viewed with suspicion – even when they have some basis.

A common example in the future could be audible machine-based language translation. The promise of this advancement in artificial intelligence is that we’ll be able to speak into a device that instantly translates and vocalizes our words into any language we want. That sounds amazing, right? That depends whether we use the artificial intelligence to replace our own intelligence. This AI shouldn’t be an excuse for humans to stop learning other languages. Instead, it should be an opportunity to for us to reach more people around the globe or increase the speed with which critical messages are disseminated.

AI is an incredible tool when it’s applied correctly. When we use artificial intelligence to augment our own intelligence, our skills are amplified but remain intact. It’s sometimes called intelligence amplification (IA). For example, augmented vision is a concept of layering data on top of what we already see. Think of real-time Yelp reviews in your line of sight when you walk in front of a café. It doesn’t replace our underlying vision.

Here are three simple ways to ensure your real intelligence isn’t entirely replaced by artificial intelligence anytime soon.

A calculator can be a time-saver, but it's not meant to replace our ability to do math. If you’re using a calculator or other mathematical tools as a crutch, try multiplication and division by hand. What is 286 multiplied by 9? Or 142,500 divided by 4,655?

Our ability to do basic math will ensure we don’t forget how to calculate a tip, validate the total amount on an invoice or billor convert teaspoons to tablespoons when cooking.

Google Maps and Waze are pervasive today. These apps are standard operating procedure for Uber or Lyft drivers. The intelligent applications are meticulously plotting out each left and right turn, and updating routes in real-time. If you’re using this form of AI each time you get from Point A to Point B, try looking at the route on a map and then navigating to the destination on your own.

Reading maps and navigating from one place to another builds spatial reasoning skills (i.e., seeing with our mind’s eye). In contrast, GPS systems allow us to follow directions without assembling a picture of where we’ve been.

The irony is that in the pursuit of technological advancement, we may actually lower our intelligence collectively. We are absorbing more and more content. We download podcasts, scan social newsfeeds, search the internetand read online publications. These activities are typically bite-sized and done while multi-tasking. The trouble is that we are neglecting deep processing, which is more often associated with reading long-form books. Deep processing is the brain’s ability to focus, remember and build meaning through previous knowledge.

DeVon Douglass defines the murky term in her own words.

In planning circles, “resilience” often refers to the ability of urban systems to bounce back from environmental shock. On that front, Tulsa, Oklahoma, has its work cut out, ensuring utilities and emergency services have the resources to withstand 130-mph Angara Classic Round Aquamarine Solitaire Ring in Yellow Gold 7BtrP4cUN9
whipping through the city.

But to DeVon Douglass, Tulsa’s Chief Resilience Officer, resilience is ultimately about the strength of citizens themselves—a tenacity, she says, that starts withindividuals and spans out to society.

Appointed by Mayor GT Bynum in December 2016, and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities network, Douglass brings experience as a lawyer and policy analyst to the task of developing a multi-pronged resilience strategy for the Oklahoma metro, zeroing in equity gaps in Tulsa’s schools, transportation systems, and the economy.

We spoke to Douglass at the Urban Resilience Summit in New York City in July about the work she’s got ahead of her.

What was your definition of resilience coming into this job?

When I first started, I had this idea of youth resilience, because of my previous work with marginalized youth in New Jersey . I was thinking of children who are called dropouts, and the difference between a kid who stays in school and those who don’t. What is inside a child that, despite the fact that they have an abusive father, a distant mother, and murders going on on their block, keeps them from pushing to the end of high school and getting to college?

That’s their internal resilience, and that’s where my first understanding of the word came from. I think it’s transferrable to urban environments, to large communities, to our entire city.

How do you transfer a quality inside the individual to the scope of an entire city?

Well, this is more my conceptual framework. We often talk about systems, but we forget that people make up systems and policies, and the policies reflect us as human beings. I think it’s useful to think about how we as human beings can withstand trauma individually to think about the whole city.

Can you give me a concrete example?

Our schools have suffered a lot recently. They are in a state of crisis as state funding for them has plummeted. Our state funding formula is odd to begin with, to say the least—we’ve had the lowest teacher salary and more cuts to public education than any state in the union since 2008. Across the state, we’re cutting programs, moving to four-day school weeks, taking away stuff these babies need.

I think we need a two-pronged approach with resiliency [in schools]: more funding to raise money for them, but also rethinking schools so we can get people excited about them again. I’d like to make schools places where families can get wraparound public services, and where parents and grandparents can come and get new skills. So [like people themselves], there are external changes and internal factors that come into play. Paris has done work around making schools neighborhood centers, anchors in a community—I have found that very inspiring.
