Oddly enough, yes. Because regardless of the crime, you are still presumed innocent until proven otherwise. In some cases, a judge can deny bail until trial based on several factors; flight risk, immediate danger to others and/or immediate danger to themselves. In this case, I'd assume all three.

I just don't buy into the idea that white males have that much power anymore, and I hate that these SJW groups want us to accept that we do at face value. There are anti-discriminatory laws at every level of society, a strong taboo against racism or sexism, and opportunities for minority groups and women to get ahead that sometimes even discriminate against the majority. Hell, the income and high level positions occupied by Asians as one of the smallest minority groups in the US speaks volumes about the level playing field the US has been working hard to create for the past several decades. The arguments from the other side have become so esoteric that they lose meaning. "Institutional racism", "systemic discrimination"...it sounds awful but it doesn't really mean anything.

I see what you're saying, and I understand where your frustration is coming from. I think minority groups certainly have greater power now than they did in the past. However, I would argue that minorities (Blacks and Latinos in particular) still have significantly less power in society compared to whites (especially in terms of socioeconomic power). For example, we know that Blacks and Latinos have significantly higher poverty rates than Whites. Now, there are a huge number of factors that play into this, but I think race is part of the problem. An example of this would be the fact that people with "Black/Latino-sounding" names (such as Jamal or Pedro) are less likely to receive job offers than someone with a "white-sounding" name (like Michael or David). This trend still occurs even when accounting for other variables like the level of the job applicant's qualifications.

I will definitely say that there are a lot of hateful SJWs on the internet, just like there are a lot of hateful MRAs. Luckily, most of the SJWs I have encountered in real life have been kind, intelligent, and thoughtful (I attend a pretty liberal university, so I see a lot of them). Unfortunately, the hateful SJWs make it harder for the intelligent ones to work towards achieving racial equality/justice.

Mostly a simple assumption that my experience isn't out of the ordinary. That being that everyone knows Mohammed is an Islamic name because of the prophet, and people don't know that Jamal is because it hasn't got such a major connection to anything.

Ahh, I see what you're saying. I agree that most people in the US do not realize that Jamal is an Islamic name. However, I think most people in the US would associate the name Jamal with our black population (which would come with its own set of cultural and racial stereotypes).

#123 - deepterror (06/21/2015) [-]
I am not saying that whites need diversity quotas, I am saying that there is no truth to the statement that being a minority is an instant disadvantage. In many cases, it is an advantage.

I also just dont agree with diversity quotas at all. I mean, they might have had a use in the past, but in current times, there is no use for them. I should not be excluded from school just because the school doesnt have enough black people, and standards shouldnt be lowered so certain groups with lower averages can attend. If I am the best qualified, I should get the spot

I see what you mean, and I totally understand your frustration. I would love to see a world where diversity quotas serve no purpose anymore. I personally don't think we are there yet, but that's just my view.

One of the sad things is that diversity quotas hurt individuals while helping society. By that, I mean that they are meant to make up for the disadvantages that are statistically connected to being born as a minority. For example, Blacks have a much higher rate of urban living than Whites. We also know that urban areas tend to have much higher crime rates and worse schools than suburban areas. Finally, Blacks are significantly less likely to attend college than Whites (likely because of their higher exposure to crime, poverty, and poor education). Diversity quotas are meant to make up for some of these disadvantages in the hope that Black students will be able to attend college and build careers that can hopefully end the major racial divide in terms of socioeconomic class.

I'm not trying to say whether diversity quotas are right or wrong, I'm just trying to explain why they exist. With that said, I would personally like to see a shift towards a system that focuses more on admitting students based on socioeconomic class instead of race.

I had no idea that Jamal meant beauty in Arabic until today, and I would wager the overwhelming majority of people don't. I also only knew Erik was Norse because of Erik the Red. I am reasonably confident that cultural stereotypes are at best a tiny portion of the problem here.

Maybe if the names in question were Mohammed I'd see your point.

I'm curious as to why you feel confident that cultural stereotypes would only be a small factor in a name like Jamal, but would be a much larger factor in a name like Muhammad? Don't both names have racial/cultural stereotypes attached to them?
