cowboyt Correct, but the question is still valid. I'd still be interested in oefvetw124lover's view of whether that provided data answers the question.

These countries are all above (.8) on the Human Development Index, except for Albania, which is ethnically and politically very different from the other countries on the list.

Albania - (.785)
Bulgaria - (.813)
Czech Republic - (.888)
Slovakia - (.855)
Hungary - (.838)
Poland - (.865)
Romania - (.811)


Every African country is worse. Typically around (.5 to .6).

@oefvetw124lover , does this answer your question about why some of those Eastern European countries are not called "shithole" countries, despite the poverty of several of them that you have correctly pointed out? If not, then fine; could you go into why it doesn't answer that question? I have my own ideas, but I'd be interested to hear yours since you posed the question.

Yep, just like in the late 1800's/early 1900's in the Jim Crow South. I'm afraid your scenario has already been played out in this country, multiple times, and that is what the Second Amendment is really for--a government gone tyrannical. They would go house-to-house, break in and point guns at the (Black) residents, confiscate the guns at gunpoint, and then move to the next house. That happened again in recent times, in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina; they went door-to-door with assault rifle teams and looking like the infantry. I remind everyone here that New Orleans is a majority-Black city.

And it wouldn't be limited to "the hood". Rather, they'd probably head straight for southern DeKalb County in Georgia, which is an affluent, majority-Black part of Georgia (northern DeKalb County is majority-White). DeKalb County is a study of how racial group is the differentiator in development efforts and property values. The housing developments are the same--upper middle class. In both northern and southern DeKalb County, you have doctors, lawyers, Information Technology professionals, and so on. The property values are lower in southern DeKalb County because of "all those Blacks there". White flight, despite affluence. The cops will see southern DeKalb County as their own version of "Black Wall Street" and head there first, guns locked and loaded.

This is DeKalb County.

*That* is one example of why we need to A.) rein in the police *VERY* hard, and B.) ensure that We, The People have access to what the police also have access to, just to keep the watchers themselves in check.

cowboyt Gotta ask then...should the Deacons for Defense not have had their guns? The Southern states did have gun control....

oefvetw124lover with all these shooting (both mass and regular) its probably a good business decision to invest in a funeral home.
kind of morbid but everyone dies at some point.
