    Title of your post is WAY WRONG, buddy.

    84% of white homicide victims were killed by other whites. That’s a true statement according to the study.

    93% of black homicide victims were killed by other blacks. Not sure why you conveniently left this stat out of your post? It was located directly underneath the data you felt the need to share and misappropriate in the title of your post.

    Since your sensationalist title is way off, I did the work for you. Here’s the “of all murders” data you misappropriated in the title…

    45.3% of all homicides committed by whites while whites accounted for 50.3% of the victims of homicide. (-5% offender/victim ratio)

    52.5% of all homicides committed by blacks while blacks accounted for 47.4% of the victims of homicide. (+5.1% offender/victim ratio)

    2.2% of all homicides committed by other races while other races accounted for 2.3% of the victims of homicide. (-0.1% offender/victim ratio)

    As a young, white male I’d like to thank you for showing your true colors of ignorance.

      Buddy, the point is that 84% all murders of white people are committed by other white people. We need to get our own house in order before we criticize other races for having unacceptably high rates of intra-racial murders.

    @Steves BM
    fOx snooze and other neoliberal media organization continue to pontificate on the 91% of blacks are killed by other blacks.
    So why are you upset by the title and the percentage shown in this title?

    As a person of color I thank you for displaying
    the traits of an ignoramus

    @ Jon, you do realize that the white population is 5x higher than black population. Somewhere around 230 million for whites as opposed to 42 million for blacks. You do realize that right? the funny thing with statistics is every one wants to zero in on 1 key number. But there is much more to it than just one number.

    @SenoritaBonita, thats a link to something from 1999. 12 years ago? I can go back 50 years ago and show you worse #’s than that.

    Some things that have changed over the years. Number of murders per year have dropped over the past 20 years. The number of blacks killed by blacks has remained consistent. Number of whites killing whites even with 5 times the population has decreased. The number of White on black murders, crimes violent crimes has DECREASED. # of black on white crimes has remained consistent.

    I think Jon is upset about the same thing as I am. Black community since this Treyvon Martin thing likes to throw out a stat or a number here and there and act as if that is the only stat there is. But there is always more to it.

    Your population statistics i.e. number of white population being 5 times more than black does not add credibility to your argument. Percentages would remain relatively stable even if the populations increased. On the surface, the argument sounds credible; math says otherwise. Your “Trayvon thing” comment indicates your stance, as it sounds dismissive. Fact is, Zimmerman had a gun;consequently,young man is dead. Guns and poor judgement don’t mix.

      Exactly, some people don’t understand how statistics work. Pitiful.

    @Kollin I do realize that just 13% of the US population is African-American, so even if 100% of black people were killing each other, the number of deaths would be far fewer than the actual number of whites killed by other whites.

    But do you realize that suggesting that either of these murder rates is based on race rather than sociological factors and other circumstances is, in fact, racism of the vilest sort?

    Cave n!@@ers are in denial about their savage nature. These neanderthal apes are their own worst enemy. Cave n!@@er on cave n!@@er violence is prolific in this country. These mayonnaise monkeys fixate on non whites because they can’t deal with the hideous truth about their own dysfunction. They should have never been let out of the cave of Europe.

    you do realize most murders are by people with some kind of relationship weather it be friend husband wife etc. so stats are worthless. Most black people know other black people most white people know other white people. How about let’s eliminate people on people crime.

    Lolo, I completely agree that most murders are committed among people who have relationships, but the conservative meme is that most black people are killed by other black people, as if the same were not true of most Chinese people, etc.

    PEOPLE murder more PEOPLE within their own race.Both races murder their own more than they murder each other.Both races have the capability to love and to hate,to be peaceful and to be violent.THE END.

    “But do you realize that suggesting that either of these murder rates is based on race rather than sociological factors and other circumstances is, in fact, racism of the vilest sort?”
    Is “other circumstances” a hint of genetic predisposition? There are only a handful of majority black countries with a homicide rate of less than 6 per 100,000. The homicide rate for American whites is the same as Norway and Ireland.

    Denial, ignorance or both. Many Whites are so concerned about race preservation. I have no problem with that whatsoever. With those whom are solely concerned with this self preservation, it is truly a puzzle to me as to why you concern yourself with the rate of Black on Black crime. Perhaps you should be happy with that statistic. On the other hand, you should be very, very concerned with the rate of White on White crime. Based on 3000 white victims, 2500 are victims of other Whites. Yet when you encounter a Black or Minority in your vicinity; you immediately enter a defensive mode. Regardless of demographic populations, more than 8 of 10 White victims are victims of White offenders. I am ashamed of the Black on Black crime rate as well as the Black on any race crime rate. Perhaps the finger pointing Whites (not all Whites) should examine their own racial violence issues.

    I would like to see where people are getting the stats for white murderers since the DOJ lists non-black hispanics as white. I don’t think the true numbers are readily available and I don’t believe that is an accident.

    If you are white ask yourself this question: How many people that you actually knew were murdered? Most white people are going to answer that question with 0. Ask that same question to blacks or a hispanics and you will probably get a list.

    These stats are very revealing. I am an African American activist in Los Angeles and I continually use these numbers when I testify in front of the L. A. Board of Police Commission and the L. A. City Council. Whites murder whites and blacks murder blacks. There are tens of thousands of lilly whites towns all over America that are considered. Gun em down drug runners town with millions of white people in them and no blacks or latinos in them. Biker gangs etc. This is where many of the white on white murders happened.
