the black crime rate is seven times
as great as the white crime rate.
4) The answer is that white variation is greater than black variation, that is, the criminality distribution curve is wider for whites.
This article also discusses disparities in incarceration rates. Blacks are incarcerated at about six times
the rate of whites.
Did anyone notice this?

When they talk about crime rates, are they talking about the total number of crimes or just those which result in a conviction in court? There are a lot of inner-city crimes that go unpunished because witnesses either don't want to help a justice system they consider part of the white racist power structure, or because they are afraid of being killed for cooperating with the police.
The liberal Atlantic magazine in the April 2007 issue has an article entitled "The Story of a Snitch" about this problem and how it played out recently in East Baltimore.
"..the black crime rate is seven times as great as the white crime rate. "... "Blacks are incarcerated at about six times the rate of whites." Did anyone notice this?
"Seven times" is the figure for violent crimes, which was chosen because we are talking about serial killers. But the "six times" figure is the incarceration rate for all crime.
