This would be a high-profile example of what Dune is talking about.

These guys did a lot more damage to society than a hundred random street thugs.  White-collar crime tends to have a lot more victims than violent crime.

No they don't.  Although I'm sure people have said "Oh, you did it because I'm black" or "You are just being racist."



Yeah, a lot of them seriously do. And if you take the phrase "black people" and define it as the black pop-culture, which almost every black person I've met subscribes to, it is most definately true. I know there are plenty of good, intelligent, hardworking, non-racist black people out there but, as a whole, they've become a culture of victims. Doctor King is probably rolling in his grave.

And it's sad that he had to put, "not trying to be racist or anything" before he said that too....It's not racist it's just not quite PC enough to fit the standards of 21st Century America.....


Oh I wasn't saying I disagree with him, I completely agree.  I was just saying that they don't talk in AIM language.

How is a racist culture a victimised culture as well?


Victimized in their own minds is what I meant.

And actually, why would they be mutually exclusive? Racists can't be victimized? lol...

(Not being a jerk, just pointing out the logic. Sorry, I just got outa my Logic class like 2 hours ago, my mind is still working on it...)

People are ruined, lives are ruined and thrown into tailspins not much less worse than death. The liklihood of being effected by street crime is significantly less than being effected by white collar crime, very little of that street crime actually involving homicides.

But death is still worse than financial ruin.

Death is very unlikely in comparison to complete social ruin. Thus white collar crime being more harmful.

More likely to go into finiancil ruin than die. -That's what you were trying to say, right?

Just because it is more likely, doesn't mean that it is more harmful.

How do you figure?

Because death is less common than white collar crime, doesn't mean that white collar crime is more harmful. Besides, the majority of white collar crime is commited by every Tom, **edited** and Hairy in the US.

Depends how you are looking at it. If you are looking at it as a whole, then you could argue that the financial ruin of many people is worse than the death of a few, but the death of a few I think, is more damaging than the financial ruin of many.

You're looking at the harmfulness of a criminal act upon all of society.

It depends on your point of view. See, me, I would be inclined to think that financial ruin is a terrible thing. Unless I was dead. If i was dead, ide probly wish i had financial troubles instead of the front of a grey hound buss comming out of my forehead.

It seems akward that I am fighting for the minorities. It usually seems like your job. In this case, the minorities being the few that die from street crimes.

I love minorities. But saying that white collar crime is more damaging to society than blue collar crime. To the economy, maybe, to your poor daddys pension. Maybe. But not society as a whole. Blue collar, that on the other hand, does affect society as a whole, I see it everyday here. Blue collar crime.

How about this - your average Joe worries alot about getting mugged, shot, raped, w/e.  But unless Joe happens to live in the bad part of town, those things are quite unlikely.

No matter WHERE Joe lives, however, he has a significant likelihood of being victim of "white-collar crime".  Yet Joe doesn't particularly worry about that.

And yes - I would rather have my life's savings stolen than be killed.  But would I rather have my life's savings stolen than be mugged at gunpoint, and have $87.50 stolen from my wallet?  Of course not.  Would I rather have my life's savings stolen than be beaten up a bit?  Of course not.  Would I rather have my life's savings stolen than have somebody break into my house and steal my TV, my VCR, and my jewelry?  Of course not.

People rarely have $10,000+ stolen by a mugger.  Happens with non-violent economic crimes all the time.

And one mugger might, if he is industrious, rob 50-100 people in his career.  Right now, there are online forums where you can buy credit card numbers and SSNs.  Minimum lot size - 1,000.  Minimum.  A single industrious "white collar criminal" can victimize thousands upon thousands of people, and for much greater amounts than any mugger.
