Of course whites commit more crimes, there are millions more white people. That doesn't prove anything.

There are also more whites in jails and prisons than blacks. That doesn't prove anything.

As a percent of their population they commit more crimes.

A 2012 study by the Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention revealed that in 2010 black youths committed six times more murders, three times more rapes, 10 times more robberies and three times more assaults than did their white counterparts. - See more at: Crime Stats Alarm Black Leaders | American Free Press

Relax - one only needs to scratch the surface to unravel this mess. Negative perceptions of black males are rooted in the hard data on specifically who commits violent crimes. Black males will not change how they are perceived until they change how they behave, and the "gangsta culture" hasn't done the Black community any favors or added to their credibility.

Going by the numbers provided by the FBI's own website - Blacks are seven times as likely as people of other races to commit murder, eight times more likely to commit robbery and three times more likely to use a gun in a crime. Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit violent crime against a White person than vice a verse, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery. Black-on-White rape is 115 times more common than the reverse. When it comes to homicide, 52% of all murders across the board in the U.S. are committed by blacks.

The Center for Equal Opportunity analyzed 55,512 felony cases filed in state courts for the 75 largest counties in the U.S., representing 37 percent of the U.S. population. The data taken from the Bureau of Justice revealed that juries actually acquit blacks at a higher rate than whites for 12 of the 14 types of crime studied — including murder, rape, robbery and assault. The only category that had a higher conviction rate for blacks was felony traffic offenses....Oops - there goes your theory!

Sorry, but we moved here for peace and quiet; not a national riot and civil unrest.
Things pretty rowdy out in Manchester?

Doesn't change my theory that black males are more likely to ever even be arrested for crimes that all races commit. I am getting the feeling this thread is corrupted by the very people I am disgusted with.
