@matrix Its almost like living in a society that treats you unfairly, makes it harder to be financially successful, and causes you to be likely to be born into a life of poverty might possibly influence a persons perpencity towards crime.... who wulda thunk.

@freemo While that certainly plays a role, the difference is so big and not seen among other poor people that it isn't a good explanation.
The biggest contributor is in my opinion fatherlessness.


@matrix The thing it **is** seen among other poor people, and the correlation is actually rather high unlike what you suggest. It is just that it is only one part of a problem that includes many factors (And yes fatherlessness may be one of them). Clearly there is more than just the fact that they are poor that contributes to the issue, but that i part of it.
