We are told that because blacks are incarcerated at a disproportionate rate compared to their population that the criminal justice system is racist. We are told that because blacks are suspended from school at a disproportionate rate compared to their population that the education system is racist. Well, what are we to make of this: blacks commit hate crimes at a disproportionate rate to their population.
The FBI just released the latest hate crime statistics and it doesn’t look good for the black community, which is portrayed as America’s biggest victim. In 2013 24.3% of all hate crime offenders were black. According to the last census, blacks make up 12.6% of the population. That means that blacks commit hate crimes at nearly double the rate of their population percentage.
Now let’s compare that to whites: The FBI reports that 52.4% of hate crime offenders were white. Keep in mind that the FBI considers Hispanics as whites so the percentage of actual white hate crime offenders is likely much lower. In any case, non-Hispanic whites make up 63.7% of the US population. Throw in the Hispanics and it’s 72.4%. Either way, whites commit hates crimes at a rate lower than their population percentage.
Here are the other races that the FBI keeps stats on with their hate crime and population percentages:
0.8% of offenders were Native American and Alaskan versus 0.9% of the population. It’s close but still lower.
0.7% of offenders were Asian versus 4.8% of the population.
0.1% of offenders were Hawaiian or Pacific Islanders versus 0.2% of the population.
The only race that exceeds their population percentage in hate crime offenders are the blacks. If all things were equal, you’d think the numbers would match up. Actually, based on the media’s insistence that white people are all horrible racists, you’d expect that nearly 100% of all hate crimes were committed by them.
You can look at these numbers in any number of ways, but what you can’t escape is the fact that blacks are more likely to commit a hate crime than any other race.
That brings us to the question: what does it mean to be racist? Is simply being white racist? Is being unaware of the latest politically correct sensitivity racist? What about assaulting someone for the color of his or her skin or ethnicity? To me, the last one seems a hell of lot more racist than having “white privilege” or being culturally ignorant.
I’m not going to pretend that there aren’t racist white assholes, there are, but they are the exception rather than the rule. With 24% of hate crime offenders being black when their population is only 12% tells me there is an alarming amount of racism and hatred in the black community. But you know what? Go turn on the TV to find out how whites are the racists responsible for tearing this country apart.
