    The only reason they're less intelligent then is the fact that they can't afford the education because all the money's going down south and to Brussels. People who voted Remain tend to be richer and more educated because of all the money they got. I have a cousin that went to Uni, and she supported Brexit, as did most of my family. Also, a majority of that article did not even prove your point.

    There are many poor areas around where I live, I see no investment from the EU at all, and remember, we give money to the EU, so it would not really be the EU investing, it would be the EU spending British money on Britain, hardly an investment.

    Where do you live? If it's one of the poorest areas of the country, it's almost definitely had EU investment.

    and remember, we give money to the EU, so it would not really be the EU investing, it would be the EU spending British money on Britain, hardly an investment.
    Okay? And when the government invests money in my region they're actually spending MY money. That's how taxes work. I don't understand why it makes a difference whether it's the EU investing your taxes in your area or the British government doing it? The fact is that the EU invests in the poorest regions and the British government neglects them.

    I agree with a majority of what the articles say, but what the second article said about how we put in more money than we get back is true.

    As I am not going to give credit to an organisation that does not deserve it. If you give me £100 and I then provide you with £50 worth of something, I do not deserve credit or praise. Especially if that £50 I spent on you is not want you even asked for. Do you have any evince that the money that the EU does spend (which is our money remember), is actually spent on things that the locals want or need? No, you don't.

    The locals clearly do want it since they're begging the government to guarantee they'll keep getting it once we leave. Obviously they won't. http://news.sky.com/story/regions-de...funds-10324894

    A better analogy is I give you £100 and you give £70 to your rich friend and £30 to another friend who gives £15 back to me. Now I'll be giving you £100 and you'll be giving £100 to your rich friends and I'll get absolutely **** all.

    Our government gives your taxes to the rich, the EU forces them to give your taxes to the poor.

    I'm on mobile with an awful connection, so cba to give links, but then if you're at all interested I'm sure you'll be able to search for this stuff, and if you're not then you'll likely not be interested in the truth beyond your narrative anyway.


    Far more white people are killed by police in the US than blacks. However, of course you have to account for the smaller population percentage of blacks, and that leaves black people at about twice as likely to be shot than any other races. But black people are also more likely to commit crime (due to higher poverty levels) so when you take that into account, it kinda evens out and you realise the US police aren't as racist as the media makes them out to be (they're still horribly brutal though regardless of race, which is the problem which should be focused on).

    A study conducted on monkeys showed that members of each gender were just as likely to choose toys that are generally associated with their respective genders as humans, suggesting that preferences for certain objects dates back far before "social constructs".

    Over half of all Muslims in the UK think gays should be punished by the law
    Part in bold is an oversimplification. The majority of people living in poverty in the USA are white, poor whites do not commit much crime compared to blacks or hispanics. In fact an areas poverty and education levels in the USA are not as strongly correlated with crime as an areas racial make up, ie, more black people = more crime. Not a comfortable fact for many people, but the title of this thread makes me feel it's appropriate here.

    The gender pay gay
    In its annual report, "Highlights of Women's Earnings in 2012," the Bureau of Labor Statistics states that "On average in 2012, women made about 81% of the median earnings of male full-time wage and salary workers ($854)."[1]

    However... Women work fewer hours per week than men do. They tend to take more time off because they tend to spend more time with their children. They tend to select jobs that require less time. full-time men work 8%-10% more hours per week than full-time women.[4]

    Men were almost twice as likely as women to work more than 40 hours a week, and women almost twice as likely to work only 35 to 39 hours per week. Once that is taken into consideration, the pay gap begins to shrink. Women who worked a 40-hour week earned 88% of male earnings.[1]

    Because women have taken more time off and worked fewer hours per work, men of the same age often have more experience, and more work experience usually yields a higher salary for the same amount of time worked. To say it another way, some women take time off to raise their children, instead of staying at a company, getting promoted and gaining more seniority, all of which can result in lower pay relative to those who don't take time off.[8]

    Women are more likely to pursue jobs with flexible hours, which may result in lower pay per hour than jobs with set hours.[1]

    Flexible hours are more desirable, so employers who offer jobs with flexible hours are often able to offer lower wages per hour. Women are less likely to pursue careers where it's harder to take time off. Professions like law, surgery and finance tend to have wide pay gaps, according to Goldin’s research. In those jobs, it’s costly to hand work off to another colleague because clients or patients typically expect to receive services from the same person every time. That means employees are often disproportionately penalized for missing work during critical hours to do things like pick up their kids from school.[7]

    Compared to men, women do not seek training in some high paying job fields or take college majors that would grant them access to those career paths. In 2009, only 7 percent of female professionals were employed in the relatively high paying computer and engineering fields, compared with 38 percent of male professionals." Professional women, on the other hand, are far more prevalent "in the relatively low-paying education and health care occupations."[2][3]

    Women are less likely to try to negotiate for higher salaries. as the American Association of University Women reports, men are four times more likely to bargain over salaries once they enter the job market.[1]

    Women are less likely to pursue risky jobs where compensation is higher. Nearly all the most dangerous occupations, such as loggers or iron workers, are majority male and 92% of work-related deaths in 2012 were to men. Dangerous jobs tend to pay higher salaries to attract workers. Also: Males are more likely to pursue occupations where compensation is risky from year to year, such as law and finance. Research shows that average pay in such jobs is higher to compensate for that risk.[1]

    Women are drawn to some occupations that pay less. differences in the type of work men and women do account for 51 percent of the pay gap …women sometimes voluntarily choose lower-paying occupations because they are drawn to work that happens to pay less, like caregiving or nonprofit jobs, or because they want less demanding jobs because they have more family responsibilities outside of work [1] [2]

    If you control for some of these factors, the pay gap shrinks quite a lot: the gender gap shrinks to between 8% and 0% when the study incorporates measures such as work experience, career breaks and part-time work.[4]

    The BLS reports that single women who have never married earned 96% of men's earnings in 2012.[1]

    Some other studies have tried to control for all of the above factors to figure out just how much discrimination against women lowers their salaries. The O'Neills conclude that, "labor market discrimination is unlikely to account for more than 5%"[1]

    The American Association of University Women’s research report, Graduating to a Pay Gap... controls for occupation, major, hours worked, parenthood, and many other factors to reveal that college-educated women working full time were paid an unexplained 7% less than their male counterparts were paid one year after graduation. To clarify, this analysis looks at men and women who have made the same educational and occupational choices and still finds a gap.[6]

    Some argue that if some businesses discriminate, others would have a profit motive to hire women instead of men in an effort to save money — because they could get more work for less pay, and that this would close the gap, driving women's salaries higher. It's not clear how much this effect offsets discrimination. If it does compensate, it could be that some businesses are discriminating more than others, and that these statistics wouldn't account for that variation — since they only focus on average pay not the differences between the ways in which different organizations and people treat their female employees. It’s worth noting that some women may choose to work less because of the discrimination they experience. They may choose to focus less on their jobs because they are discouraged by workplace experiences.[1]
