Default Re: Jackson accuses Utah fans of racial slurs

Aryan members in Utah are much more likely to kill a Black Man in Utah then in California. Because they are more racist then the California sect? No. Because they have a huge numbers advantage and do not have to worry about a full scale riot and answering to what they have done.

For the poster who stated it is rhetoric to state that a 99% white crowd is more likely to throw a racial slur then a 75% one no it is not. It is pure fact. Ever heard when the Cat is away the mice will play.

I am stating that I believe Stephen Jackson. The laws of numbers prevail. It only takes one man. One man is much more likely in a 99% white crowd to throw a slur simply because of the law of numbers. Do you think if he was sitting between a Black family he would have said it. No. The only thing that changed was the demographics.
I appreciate that you believe that Utah is racist (although you have never lived there and have zero evidence of racism beyond 1978). Go ahead and believe that. What I will tell you is that I have lived in Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Jose, Seattle, Salt Lake, Denmark, Germany, England and Switzerland. Salt Lake is (with the possible exception of London), the least racist place I have ever lived.

I believe that Stephen Jackson is lying, and played the race card because he knows that there is no way to prove him wrong. Now that is my opinion, but I am basing this on the fact that Jackson has no credibility, and on my experience living in Salt Lake.
