You are correct. In many cities, racism by minorities against whites is no laughing matter, including all the cities you mentioned. And the interracial crime statistics prove it.
I personally know many whites who have beern assaulted for no other reason than race. Yet I have never known a single (not one) minority who has ever been assaulted by a white for their skin color. And I've lived alot more places than most.

Interesting and the hate crimes stats show a different story. What the interracial stats just show that the minority criminals don't care as it isn't a cut and dry thing about hate crimes like people would have you think. I just went through a hate crimes training at my place of employment and the thing you have to think about are: Would such crinmes occur if both people were of the same race and even if slurs are involved, you have to base things off of the root of the crime. So, if neighbors of a different race have a conflict over say a tree in the other's property, and then slurs are exchanged and one of the guys punches the neighbor, that would not be considered a hate crime.

Also, you have to think about who is committing these crimes, in terms of gangs or individuals, which is the case for the overwhelming majority of such cases.

Who puts the heat on to count black on white crimes as hate crimes when appropriate? The ACLU? Southern Poverty Law Center? NAACP? Black Panthers? Detroit City Council? (Anyone remember Joanne Was at the Freedom Festival Fireworks?) Who?

It's not about who puts the "heat" on anyone. There is a certain criteria that has to be met and it goes in various ways. Table 1 - Hate Crime Statistics 2008 (http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/hc2008/data/table_01.html - broken link)

Incidents and Offenses - Hate Crime Statistics, 2008 (http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/hc2008/incidents.html - broken link)

Again, every interracial crime isn't considered a "hate crime" even those that include Blacks and other minorities as victims.

Yes it is on who puts the heat on anyone. LEARN
The minorities put the "heat" on the majority. The minority didn't want to put effort into thier own country, PLAIN AND SIMPLE.It's easier to come here and complain about us. I KNOW. They do nothing but whine. They have an excuse for breakiing the law, OF THIS COUNTRY. Why are they here? They know they can get away with it here. They'd be locked up if doing that in thier own country . They ignore that fact. Foriegners made this country GREAT, now you're tearing it down..............Why?

Huh?

Anyway, the "hate crime" information is what it is. I'm just passing on the information. Every interracial crime is not based necessarily on race, as many of the people that commit those crimes most likely would do it to someone of the same race and/or have a basis in something else like drugs, for example.

I don't understand what you just said. The majority of hate crimes are committed against Blacks, as the stats will state on the FBI sited.

The majority of hate crimes are called hate crimes because when a black man attacks a white man in the rest of the country, they call that normal.

However, the blacks in Detroit are some of the friendliest you'll ever meet, as long as you don't act like a complete self-righteous tool. From my experience the African American diaspora on the eastern seaboard are much more threatening, however, I am not a racist. I myself am a bit brown in the skin and know there are also criminal whites and Hispanics, and that a lot of crime isn't fueled by race but class etc etc

People of color in the Carolinas, DC, Boston and New York generally are much less friendly and seem to live up to the stereotype more often. Just from my experiences, I may have just met a bad bunch in my experiences in those places.
