There’s a bigger problem that Ferguson protesters aren’t addressing

Prison HandsA common refrain heard from the Ferguson, Missouri, protesters and those calling for the head of Michael Brown’s shooter, Officer Darren Wilson, is that police shootings disproportionally result in black victims.

That seems to be true. But statistics on police-involved shootings are inadequate. The FBI relies on the nation’s 17,000 or so police departments to self-report. Only about 750 comply on an annual basis.

So the FBI reports that slightly more than 400 people are killed by police each year. The Department of Justice reports a much higher rate of about 700 per year. Of those, about 42 percent are white and 32 percent are black. With blacks comprising about 17 percent of the population, protesters seem to have a legitimate point.

However, another telling statistic gets overlooked — or squelched — and neither Al Sharpton nor Jesse Jackson nor Barack Obama nor Eric Holder nor any of the other “black leaders” seem to care about it. Blacks are killing each other at a disproportionate pace. Most murder offenders are black.

They mostly murder other blacks.

Blacks also commit more violent crimes by far. According to the Department of Justice, in 2010 (the last year data is available) 62,593 blacks were victims of white-on-black crime. But 320,082 whites were victims of black-on-white crime.

There’s clearly something wrong in the black community that so-called black leaders don’t seem to want to talk about. Perhaps that’s because they don’t want members of the black community to realize they’ve traded one plantation for another.

  1. Blacks deliberately choose white victims because they are more docile. Do you really blame them? Whites have made it easy to make them the victims. They refuse to see to 800 pound gorilla in the room. I would bet the large percent of white people shooting blacks was in SELF DEFENCE, but on the other side of the coint, most whites were shot by blacks in the commision of a crime. The stats only give raw numbers; no mention of WHY these niggers were shot!

    When they say that many niggers were shot by whites, there MUST be more to the story than meets the eye. What would a white rob a nigger for...his EBT card? Now...I know that the FBI mixes Hispanics and whites together and call BOTH white, and the Hispanic rate of violence is 3 times the European white rate. I can see Hispanic gangs shooting niggers.

    I simply do not buy the idea that true whites are killing niggers at all!
