Don’t Believe the Hype: White on White Crime Just as High or Higher than Black on Black


*Did you know that “Black on Black” crime actually dropped from a high of 94% in the 1990s to 91.3% in 2012? Of course you didn’t. Seeing as mainstream media has a real fixation on ignoring this fact. Here’s something else I betcha didn’t know. “White on White” crime actually went up during this time span.

Of course if you are a listener of Fox News, not only are blacks murdering each other; but they’re killing whites off in their down time. Strange, the fact that statistics show whites participating in the same behavior don’t seem to interest the network.

James S. Robbins’ response to the Zimmerman trial uses FBI data to prove this fact. In his article, “White on Black Murder: Who Really is Killing Whom?” he states the following: According to the most recent (2011) FBI statistics, of the 2,695 murders in which the victim was black, 91% were committed by people of the same race. Odds are if the victim was wearing a hoodie, the perp was too. The same pattern of intra-racial violence holds for whites. 83 percent of white murders in 2011 were within-race killings, and only 14% were black on white. These data tell us that murder in America is decidedly not a matter of racial hatred.”

No wonder whites fear blacks – the media is teaching them to. This fear by whites make them more likely to respond to Blacks out of fear, thereby utilizing unnecessary force, even when they are in no immediate danger.

Need an example. Here’s two. The recent shootings of Jonathan Ferrell and Renisha McBride. Both show the danger of seeking help while black. Both were killed by frightened Whites.

There are intellectuals who are attempting to wake up white America such as Tim Wise, who points out to his fellow Caucasian Americans that they are in greater danger of being killed by another white person than a black person. He delves specifically into this issue with his article “Nazis Can’t do Math Reflections of Racism Crime and the Illiteracy of Right Wing Statistical Analysis”.

In 2010, for instance, whites killed whites 3,252 times: 4.6 times more than the number of whites killed by blacks. Why no generalized fear of white people then?
