Right, so flamesuit on, but anyway I don't really care. Facts don't care about anyone's feelings. Lots of people are getting self righteous and insinuating that the OP is making a closet racist post by doubting a guy pushing a bike while committing the crime of being black. And, would you feel the same if you saw a white buy pushing a bike, etc etc. Guys, lets look at the racial make-up of prison vs the racial make-up of South African as a whole. Now my math ain't strong so if I'm off with this, feel free to correct. Blacks make up 79.6% of prison population, and also coincidentally 80.2% of the country's population as a whole. Lets round that at 80% to make things easier for me. So am I correct in saying that out of a 1000 people in prison, a random ringfence of people, 800 of them would be black and 16 of them would be white? Is my math on that right? Now compare that to the population at a whole. Of 1000 non incarcerated people, 800 would be black and 84 would be white. If my math is weak to begin with, then working out the "chances of landing in prison ratio" is even weaker, but does that not indicate that a black person is more likely to end up in prison compared to a white guy? Yes we can discuss the possible reasons behind it ranging from Apartheid to haves vs have nots, etc etc etc. There could be a whole bunch of causes which I'm not disputing, but I'm looking at the numbers. So to swing all that back around... if a guy driving his car sees a black guy in blue overalls pushing a bike, whether its a Makro special or a Pinarello, and he sees white guy in a blue overall pushing the exact same bike, why does the guy in his car need to be guilt tripped and shamed for using, not prejudice, but applying simple maths and knowing the realities of South Africa to the situation? If he, in his mind went, "Chances are..." then would he be racist, or would be just be using sound reasoning?
