BOJ statistics proves you wrong as two left shoes. You won't find any year where the 10 most murderous major cities represented the 10 blackest major cities in the same rank order and you won't find any year where the 10 most murderous states represented the 10 blackest states in the same rank order.

What I'm saying is.....check the cities with the highest murder rates then check the black population. I'll do it for you..... Birmingham, Newark, Detroit, St.Louis, New Orleans, Baltimore, Baton Rouge, Jackson, Oakland and Cincinnati according to the site I looked at. I guess Memphis van be thrown in there too. But all of these cities have a large black population, some majority and where do you think almost all of these murders occur? In black neighborhoods.

Not sure another interesting thing we could look at is metro areas for blacks. I think New York metro area, especially Northern New Jersey (barring Newark, Paterson and Irvington. Maybe Jersey City) has a low black homicide rate compared to population.

I would also suspect Atlanta metro has a low Black murder rate.

Indianapolis would play a role.

Other cities that made the top 10 for Black murder rates

Missouri
Michigan
Nebraska
Oklahoma
Pennsylvania
Louisiana
Wisconsin
California
New Jersey

I've checked for other years. Missouri, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and California keep making the list every year.
