What are some of the most toxic or potentially dangerous ideas/beliefs that have been perpetuated by Redditors?

They are racist in nature though. If you look at the socioeconomic factors dictating likeliness to commit crime, poverty is a better predictor of the behaviour than race is. And that's not to say that poor people are dangerous either, but more accurately that communities living below the poverty line are typically not given the resources they need. Kids, for example, going to schools that don't have enough funding to provide for them, in addition to the environment that they grow up in, are unable to succeed.

Racists point at crime statistics that say that black people commit more crimes and use that to justify their hatred and fear of "the other". What I'm saying is that this is completely unjustified. The way you solve that issue is to understand the cultural and economic factors that are driving those crimes.
