someone help me refute this:

"[Indigo], based on your argument, I could say that suspicion of young black men is a reasonable reaction resulting from past crime statistics. Sound ludicrous? It is. Oh, and obviously white people have extensively discriminated against other races."

So far, all I have is:

Yes, totally more reasonable that looking at the prison industrial complex and the racist prison system. (that was some sarcasm, btw)

Don’t use that past tense! It’s PRESENT. PRESENT tense, please. fix to “white people extensively DISCRIMINATE against other races.” Let’s be truthful here.

Does anyone know enough about crime stats to help me out? Or have something else I could say?
