Skip to comments.‘Race Wars’ Part 1: The Shocking Data on Black on Black Crime
Posted on 04/09/2012 9:21:38 PM PDT by Lazlo in PA
Black-on-black crime is a sensitive subject in this increasingly polarized nation. While covered in academia and occasionally addressed by talking heads on television, some believe it rarely, if ever, receives the type and depth of attention it deserves. Instead, critics argue that this national tragedy is usually swept under the rug by powerful interest groups and individuals more concerned with elevating their own racially-driven agendas than addressing the real issues at hand. The Trayvon Martin case is only the most recent example of this grim hypocrisy.
Indeed, statistics support a very different narrative than the one usually offered by race hustlers, as Pastor C.L. Bryant calls them, who routinely portray an America where members of the black community are selectively targeted and brutalized by white racists.
A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, reveals that approximately 8,000 and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that 93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks. The analysis, supported by FBI records, finds that in 2005 alone, for example, African Americans accounted for 49% of all homicide victims in the US again, almost exclusively at the hands of other African Americans.
To put these number in perspective, recall that over 6,400 U.S. service men and women have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the course of a decade-long war fought in those nations. During the Vietnam War, which lasted nearly 13 years, some 58,000 Americans were killed nearly 13 percent of whom were African American.

Extrapolating black-on-black crime data reveals that, by comparison, approximately 100,000 African Americans have been killed on our own streets at the hands of other African Americans in roughly the same stretches of time. It is difficult to find anyone who would white-wash these mind-numbing statistics.
Equally as startling, the same study reveals African Americans were victims of an estimated 805,000 nonfatal violent crimes in just one year alone.
Stop this with FACTS! We should all just listen to Eric and Barack!
It is better to look at the data as homicide rates per 100,000 population. Then the data becomes much more revealing:
The eye-opening summary:
“In addition, minority racial/ethnic children and young adults in the United States are disproportionately affected by homicide. During 1999—2002, among persons aged 10—19 years, the homicide rate for blacks was estimated to be 17.8 per 100,000 population, a rate 10 times that of whites (1.8 per 100,000) and higher than the rates reported for American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) (6.0 per 100,000), Asian/Pacific Islanders (A/PIs) (2.9 per 100,000), and Hispanics (8.0 per 100,000) (2).”

They really need to stop putting Hispanic/Latinos in with white stats because this just inflates the rates for whites to make them appear more violent than they actually are.
Probably better to remove the term Hispanic entirely from the Census, and other government statistics. The phrase applies more to culture then any ethnicity.
When I was in grade school the textbooks taught about “mulattos” and “mestizos”. I forget which is which, but the point was that “Hispanic” wasn’t a race unto itself or even monolithic — it was a function of an individual’s white, black, or Native American ancestry (Native American itself being most closely related to east Asian, though due to time and distance also on its own evolutionary path).
The stats said 93% are B on B. That leaves 7% W on B.
How many of the 7% were whites protecting themselves.
Certainly there were very few of the caliber of the recent
Tulsa episode. If there were many, we wouldn’t see
Jesse & friends. They would be scared that they would
This article misses the point because what really gets people fired up is interracial crimes. The black racists like Sharpton and Jackson try to gin up riots over the very miniscule amount of white on black crime. And many times their charges are BS. Meanwhile violent black on white crime is much greater. Some say 15-20 times greater than white on black violent crime.
Violent crime is generally defined to be rape, assault and murder. Google “color of crime” for the objective view derived from FBI crime statistics
DOJ under Obama tries to purge this data
They also like to count hispanics with whites in this case
To make whites look worse
The term Hispanic is a made up classification brought to by Richard Nixon for political reasons. I am sure the different nationalities covered under that huge umbrella wouldn’t like to be grouped together with the others.
An even better question is what % of the 7 % “white” is actually Hispanic on black crime. Funny how hispanics count one way for violent crime yet another for entitlements and affirmative action.
A mulatto is a mixture of black and white, and a mestizo is a mix of Indian (native American) and white.

Yes. Subtract the Hispanics and the whites shooting an
intruder and the Tulsa murder is an aberration. I still
don’t understand how the Govt. can charge a victim if the
state finds not guilty. Isn’t that double jeopardy? I guess Holder will go after Zimmermann. Remember the LA
OK. In what group do those fall? Mongrels??
“In what group do those fall? Mongrels?”
I don’t understand the question. In what group does who fall?
