Transcription

Poverty, ignorance, disease, social isolation, economic deprivation breed crime, whatever the racial group may be. Criminal responses are environmental and not racial. It is a tortuous logic to use the tragic results of segregation as an argument for the continuation of it. It is necessary to go back to the causal root and grapple with that. If our nation is to grow and develop we must see this in a real way.
