It's a euphemism for driving down wages and removing protection for workers.

You continue to insist that the problem is that "black men are being murdered by black men" rather than that black men are being murdered at a far higher rate than white men. Why is the race of the murderers relevant unless to suggest that the race of the murderers is what causes them to murder? I don't know why you would want to suggest that what causes these men to commit murder is their race when you also argue that it is poor policing that allows this high murder rate.

"But black men die at six times the rate of white men, and the difference is caused by black murderers killing black men!" There is an error in logic embedded in this statement. The CAUSE of the difference in the murder rate is not the blackness of the murderers. Would the rate be any different if the murderers were white? As you yourself point out the cause is poor policing, not the race of the murderers. so in fact your own argument proves that there is no "black on black" crime problem

"But black men die at six times the rate of white men, and the difference is caused by black murderers killing black men!" What is the relevance of the second clause of this sentence if not to suggest that it is "blackness" that is causing these individuals to commit murder? If the purpose of the clause is not to so suggest than it is you who is offering up a non sequitur. The problem is not that black men are being murdered by black men rather than white men, but that black men are being murdered at a spectacularly higher rate than white men. As you yourself point out the cause pf the higher murder rate of black men is poor policing, not the blackness of the murderers.

If only Summers was this sensible when he was in office.
