Censored Candidates For President By Mass Media

If you were involved in the decision making process to hire employees, including executives, for Target, would you allow someone with a conflict of interests, like Walmart executives to screen the candidates and decide which ones you can interview?

Of course not, in the corporate world this would never be considered reasonable at all!

However, when it comes to choosing our politicians from high offices like the president and Senate to local officials that's exactly what the vast majority of the public do!

We have six oligarchs controlling over ninety percent of the media and they automatically provide obsession coverage for billionaires like Michael Bloomberg or the next in line within the traditional Republican and Democratic Parties, without even mentioning the vast majority of candidates running for many offices. This is how they routinely rig elections so that only those getting name recognition with coverage they control are considered viable, guaranteeing that we never even hear of candidates they disapprove of!

To put it simply the mass media can rig elections by refusing to cover candidates they don't like preventing them from getting the name recognition they need to become viable!

The media practically never tells the majority of the public that there are literally hundreds of candidates they refuse to cover or report on many of the issues they run on. On the rare occasions where they do, they treat it as if any candidates they don't cover are fringe or a joke. The only time I remember any pundits even mentioning that there are many more candidates running was years ago perhaps during the 2008 or 2016 elections when Rachel Maddow brought it up, only mentioning irrational or joke candidates like "Deez Nuts" giving her audience the impression that they're not serious and that there's nothing to check out there.

Unfortunately the vast majority of the public is simply letting them get away with this without even doing much if anything to change it, even many alternative media outlets, although some of them provide some coverage for progressive candidates like Jill Stein, who is far better than the candidates the establishment media is willing to cover, with the possible exception of Bernie Sanders; however, after the primaries were rigged against him in 2016 even he caved and endorsed Hillary Clinton, which may have actually helped Trump get elected since they rigged the primaries for such a horrendous candidate that he could look like the lesser of two evils to many people.

In 2000 there were at least five alternative candidates that had their names on the ballot during the general elections in enough states to win, but the vast majority of the public wasn't aware of many if any of them. The Mainstream media provided a minimal amount of coverage to Ralph Nader and Patrick Buchanan, who were included but there were at least three others as well, including John Haglin, who was almost certainly the best candidate by far, at least in my opinion; and I suspect if the majority of the public knew about him they would be much more likely to support him and he would have had a viable chance of winning.

But of course the mainstream media gave obsession coverage to Al Gore and George Bush, as if they were the only candidates the public could choose from and that they were popular, even though they both had high negatives polling, and they often made so many idiotic blunders that it seemed like they were both trying to lose.

Things only got worse from there with both Clinton and Trump having record breaking low approval ratings during the 2016 elections, which is of course exactly what the primary process is supposed to prevent. They're supposed to nominate the people the public likes the best; however the media only covers incredibly corrupt candidates collecting massive amounts of bribes thinly disguised as campaign contributions.

Every four years there're a few web pages including Ballotpedia and Project Vote Smart put out a full list of all the candidates running for office, including for president. Project Vote Smart also provides questionnaires for these candidates, which most traditional candidates boycott, as long as they can get away with it. If the voters raised questions about it they might be more likely to fill them out so people would know where they stand on the issues; if people refused to vote for them unless they filled out a job application, which is what I refer to them as, then they would routinely fill them out.

As I pointed out previously in Saving Project Vote Smart and improving it or replacing it these questionnaires could be improved and the grassroots should have more control over the interview process, but it's still the best application for candidates that I'm aware of. Working to create better applications is also something that the grassroots needs to work on.

Project Vote Smart has barely put out their page for these candidates and as of this writing it's still blank, but presumably within the next few weeks they'll start adding many candidates. Ballotpedia already has over four hundred and fifty candidates that have officially filed papers to indicate they're running. Most of them don't seem to have much additional information available if you Google their names for president, but there are at least a couple dozen that have some additional information available which I was able to find, although it's still early, and there will no doubt be more candidates entering the race and providing additional information.

If more of these candidates got more coverage, at least at the grassroots level, then they might be more inclined to put out more information on their positions, and this could help educate the public even if they don't have a chance to win. Not that I'm completely ruling out the possibility that a grassroots candidates can win, but of course we go through this every four years and the deck is stacked against them, especially if most people keep their heads in the sand.

If enough people wake up we can get real change, as many reformers often say, and it could happen suddenly at one point or another but that won't happen unless some people start spreading the word to the best of their ability. We may not b able to get the mass media to pay attention right away, but if more alternative media outlets start covering some of the most credible of these candidate they might have a chance of either winning or doing much more to educate the public.

I don't know whether Jill Stein is running again or not, her name recognition helps, but there might be an advantage to getting new nominees as well. Ian Schlakman and a few other candidates have declared they're going to run in the Green Party; I found some information on Ian, but if he wants to run a serious campaign he'll have to put out more soon, although it's still early.

Sanderson Beck provided much more information and is worth a very close look. Unlike traditional politicians he doesn't provide carefully scripted promises catering to each audience that he speaks to without providing a good stand on many issues that is consistent no matter who they're talking to, which is what we should demand from all politicians. It's now routine to for high profile politicians to put out multiple conflicting promises to different audiences, guaranteeing they have to break many of those promises to keep other promises; and they usually keep the ones given to their campaign donors while breaking those to the vast majority of the public.

Beck also wrote extensively about how he thinks that all candidates should be heard and came up with policy positions that can help ensure that this actually happens, which is one reason why the mainstream media would never cover him; but it's also a good reason why the majority of the public should here him out, even if they don't vote for him. He supports an end to wars based on lies, single-payer healthcare, reasonable protection of the environment, and many other positions the corporations controlling the debate want to suppress, which adds to the reasons they don't want us to hear from him, but it's in our best interest to do so.

James Valentine has also created extensive positions that people can review before deciding to support him, which prevents him from adopting a different position every-time he addresses a different audience, including writing his own constitution, which many people might consider fringe or audacious. However our Constitution allows power to be concentrated in the hands of the few controlling the many although it's not supposed to do that. They claimed that they created checks and balances but then they put all three branches of government in the hands of a small percentage of wealthy people. This started out in the hands of white land owners holding slaves and we had to fight a Civil War to get black people the right to vote campaigning and protesting for decades longer before giving women the right to vote; but now six oligarchs control the press and use this control to rig elections.

I certainly don't agree with all his ideas for his Constitution and doubt if most people will either; however they're worth considering as part of a process that might lead to better understanding of our own Constitution and ratifying one that the majority of the public helped create and agrees with. Right now our leaders want us to worship it like a Bible without understanding it. The Electoral College is one of many problems with it that is considered above reproach, and as long as we accept this assumption we won't be able to control our own government as a Democracy is supposed to work.

Hubert Sean Francisco has stated that if the government shuts down those responsible for it shouldn't get paid which should be obviously right to most of us, yet the current administration is clearly forcing those with out political clout to make all the sacrifices while the wealthy that are already profiting from his tax cuts, not benefiting the majority, continue profiting off this corruption, even blatantly funding the Clock Tower at the Trump Hotel and Mar-a-Lago party tents with tax dollars while people required to work aren't getting paid.

However his positions on border security and some other positions might be as draconian as Trump's. I'm certainly not saying all these candidates are serious or good, including a candidate running as the "She-Hulk" and another running as "Frog-Man," but some are much better than the establishment candidates that the mainstream media routinely cover with obsession coverage over and over again, so if we want real reform we have to at least be able to hear from candidates that haven't sold out before the campaign even begins, although many of them do a effective job pretending to support the grassroots during the campaign and only show their true intentions after getting elected and sometimes even then they at least partly cover up their real positions with propaganda and only those watching close enough realize they've been had by some of the politicians they thought would never betray them.

One of the most blatant examples that I went into extensively in over half a dozen articles including, Elizabeth Warren Makes Me Scream! Elizabeth Warren came from the same establishment she claims to stand up to and they helped her arrange to avoid a primary, even though her leading opponent supported single payer at a time she opposed it. She's supported planned obsolescence, while pretending to be a consumer advocate speaking against what she called the "over-consumption myth," which isn't a myth at all, and is part of the epidemic fraud she claims to protect us from, voted for a massive military budget, and waited until massive pressure from the grassroots before switching positions on Charter Schools, and perhaps Single-Payer, although like many other politicians she may only be pretending to switch on these issues.

After a close look it's clear that she hasn't taken the lead on many of the issues they give her credit for, and she's one of the multimillionaires she pretends to stand up to. Even Bernie Sanders caved and endorsed Hillary Clinton. Tulsi Gabbard also seems like one of the more credible progressives; however, if she was as good as many of us want to believe she probably never would have gotten the Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee in the first place. Her father was also a politician which means she also came from the establishment all along, and they have an incredible knack for pretending to be progressive when they're not. I checked her record on Vote Smart, below and she refused to fill out their questionnaire, like typical politicians trying to control the debate so they can push their own agenda or give different versions of their positions to different people, and during the 2016 Bernie Sanders also refused to fill out his questionnaire, although he has filled them out in the past.

I'm not saying that I wouldn't support Tulsi or Bernie against the other establishment candidates if we can't get sincere grassroots candidates like Sanderson Beck, John Haglin or Jill Stein; but, if that's the best we can do we'll need to watch them closely to make sure they don't betray us like Barack Obama did.

In addition to trying to hold establishment politicians accountable we have to prepare to give grassroots candidates a much better chance by trying to help them get more coverage, which will also put establishment politicians on notice. This would also help if more alternative media outlets covered some of these candidates as well. Below are a couple dozen more candidates to check out and what ever information I could find on them with a relatively quick search; however, there will be more, and some of the candidates listed by either Ballotpedia or Vote Smart will presumably be putting out much more on their campaigns, although we may have to search for it ourselves. I'll probably follow this up with additional reviews on more candidates as they expand.

Ballotpedia: Presidential candidates, 2020

Project Vote Smart: Presidential candidates, 2016

Project Vote Smart: Presidential candidates, 2020


My name is Ian Schlakman, and I am officially launching my campaign to be the Green Party's Candidate for President of the United States.

Sanderson Beck for President 2020 "The government can make sure that debates open to all candidates are held with fair rules and made available to all Americans by the media which has licenses for broadcasting for the public good. Commercial broadcasting is polluted by advertisements used to raise enormous amounts of revenue, enabling gigantic corporations to dominate the media. Taxing commercials would be a way of alleviating the economic inequality in the media so that the government would have money to invest in public broadcasting with diverse views. Broadcasting and cable should be available to all. I believe that people benefit more by watching programs that are not interrupted by manipulative advertisements."

Literary Works of Sanderson Beck Mostly Free Online

Progressive Democracy How Wise Love Can Produce Prosperity, Justice and Peace by Sanderson Beck Proposed Amendment: "The election campaigns of candidates for the offices of United States President, Senator, and Representative as well as for statewide offices shall be publicly financed. Citizens may contribute up to three hundred dollars to one candidate in each office for which they are qualified to vote during each primary or general election. No other funds can be used for paid media advertisements. Media may not provide free advertisements to any candidate unless they do so equally for all the candidates for that office. No other person, group, organization, or business may contribute to any election campaign for any of these offices. The contributions from citizens not spent by the campaign by election day shall go into the Treasury of the United States, which shall finance the debates broadcast for each office and the sample ballots mailed to the voters that shall give equal time and space to all candidates on the ballots. Whenever and wherever primary or general elections for officers of the United States are held, that day shall be a federal holiday."

James Valentine "The Valentine Constitution would instead have our government pay for all campaigns so that our politicians will be beholden to us Citizens instead of a few billionaires, by establishing a politically neutral body within the Judiciary to provide debates and other forums for all candidates equally so that new candidates and ideas may be exposed and real issues dealt with."

"The Valentine Constitution takes the money out of politics by prohibiting campaign contributions, lobbying and the revolving door so that no favors will be owed to the big-has-failed billionaires or the special interest lobbies who currently fund campaigns and receive favors in return; who have corrupted our government, and who have gained control of our government and our economy." "Toxic packaging used once creates waste. If the world lived like Americans, we’d need 8 planets to sustain us!" "We don’t have enough water to save all Americans, let alone more immigrants. Unless we reduce our numbers we will not be able to save ourselves. We must lead the world in water efficiency, sustainability and condom use."

Hubert Sean Francisco for President 2020 “A Free People absolutely have the Inherent Right to a fully operational government as its funding is derived from the People and for the People. My Administration will send proposed legislation as a stand alone measure, that the Candidate has drafted, called the Reciprocity in Services Act. This law will ban members of Congress from compensation during a partial or full government shutdown.”

“A Free People absolutely have the Inherent Right to be safe in their persons and property from the devastating effect that criminal immigrants pose. My Administration will enforce a "Zero Trade Zero Aid" penalty on Mexico until such time that ICE certifies that the Government of Mexico has secured their Northern Border with Mexican Troops and a Concrete & Steel Wall approved by My Administration.”

Tis' the season for Domestic Violence? murders?

In a recent article, Truth is a commodity for J&J, Wells Fargo, Wall Street & Media, I pointed out that there's inadequate or conflicting claims about whether or not there's spike in domestic violence during the holidays, with several articles claiming that there's inadequate research into the subject. A couple articles on the subject claim that the assumption that violence spikes during the holidays is a "myth" backing this claim up with what they imply is scientific research from some experts, including some advocates for domestic violence victims, although it's not hard to find other advocates for victims claiming the opposite.

In the previous article, without doing a thorough search I cited four violent incidents that turned up on one Florida newspaper, that I came across, following that I did a more thorough search on Google, which still is far from complete, but it turned up a large number of shootings and murders during the holidays, in some cases, enough to show that some areas really did have above average murder rates for a few days and in at least a couple states, including Louisiana, there was indeed a spike in murders, although this doesn't reflect all types of domestic violence.

Louisiana had three murders in the fifteenth of November, one day before Thanksgiving, five on Thanksgiving Day, five on Sunday after Thanksgiving, in Sunday before Christmas, four Christmas Eve, six Christmas Day, four New Years Eve, three New Years Day; although my search methods almost certainly didn't turn up most of the murders for November or December, putting it well above the average for that state for the holidays or days that it did turn up murders, which consistently has the highest murder rates in the country with over five-hundred-fifty murders per year, with less than five million people. Louisiana had 582 murders in 2017 and 555 in 2016, so they have about an average of 1.6 per day; so any day with two or more is above average, which includes all the Holidays and Christmas and New Years Eves, but the rest of the murders during November or December are much less likely to turn up on a search using the holiday and murder, so the rest of the month is inconclusive without further data.

Tennessee also routinely makes it into the top ten for murder rates and had a gruesome murder where someone Dismembered, and attempted to dissolve his parents in acid on Thanksgiving weekend of 2016. They also had one more murders on Christmas Eve, two on Christmas Day, one on New Years Eve, and two on New Years Day, in 2018-9 along with numerous more shootings or other incidents which is enough to put it at least a little above average for those days, but it could be even higher if there are additional reports that didn't turn up in the search.

Some additional crunching of the numbers will be helpful; but, most of the states still allowing corporal punishment in schools, and presumably using it more at home too, had more murders or shootings than the states without out CP in schools, in most cases compared to the typical murder rates for the state, although this is only likely to apply to Christmas Day, or Christmas Eve, in some cases I checked for New Years or Thanksgiving, but this search wasn't as thorough. The most notable exception from states no longer allowing it was probably Ohio which had a high number of incidents, but several of the least violent states also had an increase in violent crime for the holidays as well, although in these cases one or two murders is often enough to put them above average.

The Union Leader provided a reasonably complete list of murders in New Hampshire and they probably had the second highest number of murders in 2018 than in the past ten years and five out of twenty one took place during November and December, including one on Thanksgiving. Occasionally some murders are discovered right away, and often start as missing persons report, but if no other murders turn up that is enough to put it above average and Maine and Hawaii both had murders, stabbings or shootings, over the holidays which is enough to make them above average, since they have among the lowest murder rates as well. Maine had a double murder discovered on New Years Day this year and another double murder on Christmas Day in 2015, since they only have about 20-25 murders a year that's enough to push beat the average even if there were't any more holiday murders for years. Hawaii had a stabbing on Christmas Day this year, and a murder on Christmas Day in 2016, which is enough to put it moderately above average for that state.

Many of the articles reporting on alleged increases of violence during the holidays all cite the same study from Idaho, Domestic Violence and the Holidays 11/30/2010, which says "Although Idaho is not likely to be representative of larger and more urbanized states in terms of index crimes, there is little reason to believe that IPV characteristics in Idaho aren’t generalizable to all states." This is a surprising statement from someone involved in research on domestic violence, since most good sociologists, including Murray Straus routinely point out that no one study is comprehensive, and he often cross checked many different studies before coming to conclusions. Many crime reporters in some of the more violent arias, like Louisiana, almost certainly recognize that the spike in violence during the holidays almost certainly isn't just a "myth" in their areas, even if it doesn't apply to all other states equally.

Idaho is a very rural state similar to other North Western States but very different from the South, or New England, and it's among the least violent states in the country, the only one that still allows corporal Punishment in schools, although they practically never use it, to make it into the bottom ten for murder rates. However it still had their share of murders on Christmas Day or Christmas Eve, although this year the deaths caused over the holidays were accidents they had murders in 2003, 2011 and 2014; which is enough to put it moderately above average, or average, since Idaho only has about thirty to fifty murders per year.

At best violence doesn't take much of a break for the holidays at worst it's higher, especially in some of the most violent areas. But most people involved in this research agree that there's a need for more research, with a few exceptions.

According to an article, The Holiday Spike in Domestic Abuse It's not new, and it's getting worse this year. 12/23/2014 2014 report from Wayback Machine, "There is also the issue of research funding—there just hasn’t been enough money to do an exhaustive report on exactly how many people are reaching out, the different channels they may be using, where in the U.S. they are, and who exactly they’re contacting. And frankly, domestic violence advocates are okay with this. 'Any extra money we do have, let me use it on transitional housing, let me use it to put someone back on their feet. For people working in the shelters, domestic violence is pervasive all the time, I don’t need a report to tell me that,' said Kim Pentico, director of the economic justice project at the National Network to End Domestic Violence."

If the politicians and policy makers aren't willing to base their decision on the most reliable research, which they don't appear to be, it would be tempting to agree with this; however, even though they aren't there still needs to be more research so activists can know what types of policies they need to push for that could do a far more effective job preventing this violence. Another reason why we should do more research, is that even if we don't do a comprehensive study covering all types of violence, some of it can be done fairly inexpensively, with limited resources. The listing of incidents that I compiled her didn't take much time and with more help to organize it it could show when some of this violence is more likely to take place and possibly help understand why, and how to prevent it more effectively. But some of this simply requires sincere intentions, which many people more concerned with corporate profits often don't have, and they often accuse advocates of being biased, even when their research is better quality.

We actually have enough research in the academic world and in libraries to know what the most important contributing causes of violence are; but the mainstream media practically never reports on this and politicians don't discuss it often either unless they're pressured at the grassroots level, which in some parts of the country, often the least violent parts, they often are. We need more citizens educated about the leading causes of violence to pressure politicians in order to prevent the contributing causes of violence.

The leading causes of violence during the holidays are almost certainly the same as it is the rest of the year; and as I've reported previously the most important one is early child abuse including corporal punishment leading to escalating violence later in life. Poverty and income inequality are also leading contributing causes of violence, especially in abandoned inner cities with little or no educational or economic opportunities.

Even though these are the leading causes of violence there also has to be additional reasons why many areas are more violent during the holidays, and part of it is clearly a result of the hype around obsessive shopping, which leads to an increase in violence at malls or Walmart, which just broke another record for the most shootings in a month with at least twenty probably more; the previous record was eighteen set in 2016, with an unusually low number, only seven in 2017, but November had between thirteen and fifteen shootings each November between 2016 and 2018; and even the one holiday month with fewer shootings they had plenty of other violent incidences which are higher than most of the year.

Also the Idaho study they cite most of these articles claims that "New Year’s Day has 2.7 times more incidents of domestic violence, followed by Independence Day." And it also says, "Once the Holiday season is over, there is an average 5% increase in call volume over the next two weeks." Even some of the articles that claim that a spike in violence over the holidays is a myth often admit that many of the victims of domestic violence are reluctant to report it because they don't want to break up the family during Christmas. They often speculate that part of the reason why it increases so much on New Years and the two weeks following it is because they hold off reporting it til after the holidays.

Another part of the reason calls increase after the holidays is that this may be when large amounts of credit card bills come in, perhaps from excessive shopping for the holidays season. Holiday shopping has to be the most wasteful spending of the year, and most people don't even think about questioning it or thinking about whether they're getting their money's worth, which is why corporations love it, but after the hype is over there could be a big let down.

The reason we never even question obsessive spending might that we're taught that the way to show we love people is to buy them stuff, and many people are shamed into it, even if the products they buy have little or no practical value. We often say it's the thought that counts, and when we're expected to buy so many items for so many people including many that we don't really care that much about although it's not socially acceptable to admit it.

When people make bad choices for gifts, of course we say, "it's the thought that counts," and often that's all the people getting the gift really get while the corporations get the profits from selling wasteful useless garbage! Perhaps the saying should be "It's the profit for corporations making a killing off wasteful spending that counts!"

We're taught that we're supposed to get all excited over pretty diamond rings, or pearls or other decorations that don't really improve the quality of life but are designed to show our status, and the wealthy rig the economy year round but especially during the holidays when they control epidemic levels of propaganda telling us to BUY BUY BUY all year round but especially during the holidays, with appeals to emotion that we're not supposed to question. As I said in my previous article about Truth being a commodity any effort to question this like Adbusters uncommercials are routinely censored, and more subtly research that might show how excessive consumerism or holiday shopping might contribute to violence isn't even done, or if they have to address the issue at all they come up with massive amounts of propaganda to dismiss the issue.

No doubt this seems like a bah humbug attitude, especially to those that never thought about it before, but Christmas leads to epidemic levels of consumer waste which contributes to poverty that sticks around for the rest of the year; and since that poverty, and fights over money contribute to violence, this epidemic amount of waste actually contributes to violence year round.

Many of these researchers rightfully claim that all types of violence are important and need to be addressed, not just the high profile murders or shootings that reporters focus on or that I've cited here; however, it's difficult if not impossible to know how many of these incidents aren't being reported. Most reports on this estimate that at least half, possibly much more, of these incidents are never reported at all. And murders are the only ones required by the FBI to be reported by local police departments.

In the 2014 study that I did based on 2012 crime rates I noticed that Mississippi was the second highest, when it comes to murder rates, but it was only thirty-fifth when it came to all violent crimes, according to the FBI. All violence is interrelated but they're almost never a perfect correlation, and this was much more than any other state raising doubts about whether they were collecting all the data. There's bound to be some fluctuation in reporting from one state to another, but since this discrepancy was so much larger than other states, it's likely they weren't reporting all the incidents, which adds to other doubts about how many domestic violence incidents are being reported.

Donald Trump's recent speech about how he claims "Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country and thousands more lives will be lost if we don’t act right now," also adds to the stereotypes and misconceptions about causes of violence, even though he has virtually no credibility. He cited three examples and misrepresented one of them, who was killed by two people omitting the fact that one of them was a US citizen, and there was also Mollie Tibbetts earlier this year and a few other; however it's highly unlikely that there's a large number of additional stories about illegal immigrants committing murder, especially against the middle class or while people with a reasonable amount of political clout, since the right wing routinely makes these stories go viral on the internet to demonize immigrants. In fact most studies indicate that Hispanic immigrants, which are the ones he demonizes the most, are far less violent then the rest of the public, especially in lower income brackets.

In a previous article I pointed out that the cities along the border have much higher Hispanic populations and lower murder rates and another article cited some of those studies that show Hispanic immigrants are less violent than citizens born in the United States, which clearly discredits all the hype Donald Trump, and many other right wing extremists, are constantly repeating.

Furthermore the reason we have so many illegal immigrants being victims of human trafficking is as I pointed out in Scapegoating human trafficker to protect corporations? to fill the demand for cheap labor in many farms, other low wage jobs, often without workers protections, or even working at Trump's resorts which are routinely exposed hiring illegal immigrants. The demand for victims of human trafficking is being provided by people like Trump that are demonizing the immigrants!

One of the leading causes of violence is poverty and lack of economic opportunities, which illegal immigrants are subject to more than most, yet they're less violent, which is actually surprising, since they have plenty of reason to strike out in anger over how they're being abused by an oppressive immigration system designed to make cheap labor available, then when their are complaints put all the blame on the immigrants, who never had any reasonable opportunities, without blaming the wealthy that profit off their cheap labor; which means that it's inevitable that they might incite some violence occasionally, directly or indirectly.

Regretfully, I'm not sure the same could be said for African Americans as pointed out in this article Do black Americans commit more crime? 11/27/2014 which confirms that African Americans are more likely to commit bmurder and reviewing the articles about holiday murders shows a lot of African Americans; however, it also points out that "Some criminologists think we could be simply confusing race for poverty or inequality: black people tend to offend more because they tend to be more disadvantaged, living in poorer urban areas with less access to public services, and so on." The more you look at good research into the contributing causes of violence the clearer it should be that these sociologists are right; so why don't we try to reduce poverty and increase educational and economic opportunities for African Americans?

Like most sociology questions the answer to this isn't easy and those controlling the most powerful institutions will deny it, but, it's virtually guaranteed that public policy is far more concerned with increasing corporate profits that recognizing the causes of social problems and correcting them; and in some cases we can find good research to show how this happens in several subjects, including education.

An article from the Brookings Institution, How charter schools are prolonging segregation 12/11/2017, points out how increasing growth in Charter Schools is focusing mainly on enrolling the poorest people often African Americans. Diane Ravitch has been reporting on how these Charter Schools are part of a massive effort from corporations and economists to control the education system keeping people in their place and that the quality of education is much worse, and in many cases these Charters are accompanied by epidemic levels of fraud to increase profits without providing a good education.

Last year I pointed out in Is Push For Charter Schools Increasing Murder Rates? that the cities and regions with the most Charter Schools also ahve the highest murder rates and that these schools are, if anything making it worse, instead of trying to solve the problem.

Another study, African Americans Own More Life Insurance, Not Less 03/18/2018, claims that, "Life insurance has the potential to mitigate wealth disparities across race," as if Life Insurance is a good thing, without mentioning the fundamentals of pooled risk, or insurance. However, as I pointed out in numerous articles including Insurance Executives Profit By Inciting Murder Occasionally Paying Killers insurance is outright fraud! The average consumer can't possibly get their money's worth, since the administrators have to subtract business expenses from the pool of money available to pay out claims. There are numerous studies saying that property insurance often pays out about ten percent to fraudulent claims, although there are few, except for my own review that explore how often people kill for insurance. If you subtract Ten percent for that fraud, and more for high CEO salaries enormous, amounts of money on lobbying, advertising, and many other business expense, the average policy holder isn't likely to get more than fifty to sixty cents on every dollar that they pay in premiums!

It's a scam!

And we have one white collar scam after another in our economic system increasing poverty while the wealthy profit off it, which leads to higher violence rates.

And one of the biggest contributing causes to violence is early child abuse, including corporal punishment which, in the schools that still allow it, is disproportionately meted out to minorities especially African Americans; teaching them to deal with their problems through violence!

The following are related articles, including a long list of holiday murders organized according to state. This search is far from complete for the months of November and December, even on Christmas, New Years, and Thanksgiving Days; however in some cases, it's enough to show that some states are above average for those days, and those that are well below on those days probably aren't missing enough incidents to put them above average but those slightly below average, might actually be above average if additional reports are missed. The initial search for Christmas murders or shootings was more thorough than the search for Thanksgiving and New Years. Over the next few weeks or months if I have time I might crunch the numbers a little more or search for more from those holidays, although if the Google search is too long after the incidents they're far more likely to miss many incidents; and this wouldn't be as good as FBI reports which may not be available to the people for easy review.

Why It’s Dangerous To Claim Domestic Violence ‘Spikes’ Over The Holidays 12/13/2016 The persistence of the myth betrays a lack of understanding about how abuse works.

Does Domestic Violence Actually Rise During the Holidays? Actually, the opposite may be true. 01/02/2015

Technical Assistance Guidance to domestic violence and the holidays December 2011 To date, there is no comprehensive national study linking the holidays with an increase in domestic violence. Most of the available information continues to be anecdotal or opinion pieces reflecting the experiences of advocates at a particular shelter program or law enforcement agencies in a given community.

FAQ: Does domestic violence increase during the holidays? 12/17/2014

Intimate Partner Violence: A NIBRS Analysis June 2013 A second obstacle to generalizing findings based on the IIBRS to the total number of crimes occurring in Idaho is the amount of crimes individuals do not report to police. For the crime of domestic violence, Sthor, et al (2000) reported in the publication “Idaho Crime Victimization Survey” that for the year 2000, 83% of incidents of domestic violence went unreported. Part of the reason for the high rate of unreported cases is that emotional abuse was taken into account for this survey, which undoubtedly would never be documented by law enforcement. The victimization study also reported that more than 50% of all violent crimes, child abuse cases, and property crimes went unreported in 2000. Therefore, the extent of the following information does not account for the full range of crime occurring in Idaho, only what is reported by police from 1995 through 2001.

The NVAWS also indicates that approximately 20% of all rapes, 25% of all physical assaults, and 50% of all stalking incidents against women were reported to the police. Male victims of domestic violence were even less likely to report similar types of crime. In Idaho, findings from the first ICVS in 1997 (Crank et al, 1997), conclude that 69% of violent crime and 62% of sexual assaults were not reported to the police. Similarly, in 1999 Stohr et al found that 52% of violent crime and 83% of sexual assaults and rapes were not reported to the police. This trend proves consistent when in 2001 Stohr et al found that, for all crimes not just intimate partner, 48% of violent crime and 60% of sexual assault and rape were not reported to the police.

Ignored evidence linking corporal punishment, poverty and crime grows In 2012 Mississippi ranked second when it came to murder rates, which is the only category that must be reported to the FBI but only thirty fifth when it comes to violent crimes in general which doesn't have mandatory reporting and is up to local police departments whether they report it or not.

Domestic Violence Doesn't Take a Holiday 12/15/2014

Killed by Police Police are slightly less likely to kill people in December according to these figures; however, the day before Christmas, Christmas, and the day after are often slightly higher; in 2017 there were nine people killed by policethe day after Christmas, one on Christmas, and four the day before.

The Officer Down Memorial Page If you go back ten years police are slightly more likely to be killed in December; however the ratio of people killed by police is still higher with only about ten to one killed killed by police compared to other months when the ratio is higher, although I didn't thoroughly crunch the numbers, and some of the police that died weren't murdered but died in accidents of heart attacks or other job related incidents.
