That math is racist.You can click the link to get the FBI stats. Here is the summary of interest to this topic -
While blacks made up 52.5% of known murder offenders from 1980-2008, their percentage continues to inch upwards, reaching 55.9% in 2019:
That means blacks were 8.2 times per capita as likely as a nonblack to be a known murder offender in 2019. (Due to continuing problems with how government agencies collect crime statistics, I’ve given up on figuring out rates for normal categories like non-Hispanic whites. But the big story with murders is blacks, so blacks vs. nonblacks will do.)
2019 Murder Offenders Total Known Black
NonBlack Unknown Total 16,245 11,493 6,425 5,068 4,752 % of Known Offenders 100.0% 55.9% 44.1% % of Population 13.4% 86.6% Black / Nonblack Ratio 8.2
But nobody else ever mentions that blacks, at 13.4% of the population, make up now well over 50% of murder offenders. (In contrast, blacks wind up between 1/4th and 1/3rd of police killings.) So I guess the answer must be invisible Systemic Racism or something.
Thirteen do 50? More like 13 do 56.www.amren.com
It isn't an arguable point. It's important because it has to be fixed, but you can't fix something that you don't acknowledge.
