“’Dikaia Upotheke’ – the motto of my college fraternity, Delta Upsilon International, means ‘Justice, Our Foundation,’” New York State Assemblyman Ron Kim said last week.
“Back when I was pledging, it didn’t resonate. Now, I think about it every day. In my first two terms as a lawmaker, I’ve witnessed so many injustices it sometimes seems overwhelming, leading one to question the very idea of a foundation built on justice.
“From a family-run restaurant owner getting pummeled as others watched, to a 16-year old being slashed across her face so violently she needed 200 stitches, to a 68 year-old losing his life to an attacker twice his size over a traffic dispute, there are many in our community who no longer believe there is justice,” said Kim, who also asked if anyone had “any suggestions you would like to share” in resolving these problems.
So, here is a suggestion/point/idea:
This is all cool, as long as Assemblyman Kim doesn’t jump on the fictitious racist-dribble bandwagon, regarding law enforcement. Whites are equally the victims of crimes as every other minority group. And whites have been equally injured and killed by police office officers; most police officer shootings, regardless of race, are legal and justified. Note that these equal crime statistics are not just by raw numbers, but by percentages. An equal percentage of whites are victimized as blacks (and all others). The fraudulent racial skew in crime statistics, especially with those involving law enforcement, is one of the most damaging efforts in United States race relations.
Kim did added: “I will keep doing my part in fighting for those unable to stand up for themselves. Whether it means tackling a mugger who targeted a young mother and her baby on Main Street or pushing for more security at kids playgrounds, I will continue to be a voice for all communities.”
Well, that’s pretty cool.
