Lewyn Addresses America

A little politics, a little urbanism- I also blog 100 percent on urbanism at https://www.planetizen.com/user/63 and http://www.cnu.org/blog/194

It seems to me that liberals and conservatives often make very similar arguments.  For example, I occasionally hear or read the following argument from the Right:

“Black people should stop worrying about trigger-happy police because more blacks are killed by criminals.”

And from the Left:

“Americans should stop worrying about Islamist terrorism because more Americans are killed by cause X.” (Cause X can be a lot of things, ranging from car crashes to falls in bed; I don’t think there is one cause liberals are fixated on).
