Actually, the original poster started talking about race.
I'm not saying we shouldn't talk about race, in fact I think the biggest problem is that we don't talk about it enough. However, we can discuss the crime rate in certain parts of the city without bringing race into it. Race actually muddies the picture, imo. I don't see the contradiction.
