Because what the results are *will* shock those that have not done their homework. The poster I was responding to clearly hadn’t - but I suspect he knew what the answer was.
From what I remember from back then ...
Blacks are (or were) abt 12% of the overall population. Black on white crime was about 7x white on black crime.
Normalizing for demographics yielded 49x black on white vs white on black crime.
YMMV. I have not looked at this in several years.
The booger pickers will now probably call me a racist...
However, this is a case where no homework is required.
One just has to open ones eyes.
