"The truth? As the largest racial group, whites commit the majority of crimes in America. In particular, whites are responsible for the vast majority of violent crimes. With respect to aggravated assault, whites led blacks 2-1 in arrests; in forcible-rape cases, whites led all racial and ethnic groups by more than 2-1. And in larceny theft, whites led blacks, again, more than 2-1."

The 2-1 ratio might be accurate but there are 8 times as many whites as blacks in this country so as a proportion of population blacks are 4 times as likely to be responsible for violent crime as are whites. The writer must assume a high degree of math ignorance among his readers.

Thank you for explaining so I didn’t have to. He doesn’t factor population rates at all. He also, like what seems to be the entire race obsessed parts of this country, never comment on Zimmerman’s head being beaten in to the pavement. The author of this article is deliberately causing problems with lies as other race pimps

And the very link he provides to prove his point shows that balcks and whites are nearly equal in the number of murders they commit... even though whites outnumber blacks as you point out.

This is more "games with stats" that is so popular amoung the liberals.

Yeah it’s a very dishonest article. The math is embarrassing.
