    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?

    @ 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.

    @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?
