I think you may have missed the part where I said regardless of political leanings, going full autism over memes is never good. I'd hope all of us here are smart enough to not get our news from shitposts. You're going to give yourself a heart attack and die early if you spend this much effort trying to fact check every shitpost you come across.
> I know it is circumstantial but generally there is a negative correlation with the arrival of immigrants and crime rates
Do you really believe that? What do you think is the logic behind that? Because for it to work that way seems entirely illogical to me.Quote
Xen didn't post this status update to engage in discussion or convince anyone, he was just going wide beam inflammatory for the hell of it. I was taking to task for being trying to get a rise out of people with a characterisation of immigrants that isn't representative of general reality.
It's a meme, fam. It's not meant to make an elaborate point. It's 50:50 shitposting and a good point.Quote
Mexican migrants to America being less likely to be convicted of crimes than the American average
I am pretty sure that's an american phenomenon because your national crime rates are insanely high. Among the highest in the world. It's really hard for anyone to make it even worse. I do think poor and uneducated immigration feeds the cancer that is crime in the USA and keeps it stronger than it would otherwise be, though.Quote
I don't read German, but do your incarceration stats differentiate between people who immigrated from outside the eu and those that immigrated from within?
Yes, I think there are, but you have to dig a bit more and do the maths and illustrations yoruself, because the government won't make it that obvious. Somebody listed all of the crime rates per nationality per capita. That way you can see and compare which kinds of people tend to cause more trouble than others. Of course, that image is discredited as right-wing propaganda spam. Inconvenient truths.
Generally speaking, the greater the cultural and economic difference, the greater the crime potential. "Yellow" asians tend to be very unproblematic. Africans and middle easterners are a pain in the arse. The balkan states are shit, too (fuck the EU for expanding too far that direction).
Thanks for putting in the effort there Xen, I actually appreciate it, even despite the original shitpost rubbing me up the wrong way. I'll bow out of the discussion now!
Yeah I shouldn't have gotten caught up. I was just about to shutdown after you typical quality evening of tanks to see whats new in the world of wotlabs latest activity when Xens status update was the first thing listed.
