Here are the actually 2016 numbers for anyone interested in facts.
FBI statistics on crime in America.
Whites 4,182 murders
Blacks 4,935 murders
Account for population and it's clear there is a disparity between reality and what we are told by those in charge. A biggest threat to a black man is another black man.
NOT the police...




What you don't realize with the "white" murders is that they also include "Hispanics" into this group, while Hispanics/Latino's (non-white) would not include themselves into the classification of whites anywhere else. I did a thread on this specific issue which shows that the FBI stats are wildly disproportionate because of this issue and it makes the amount of murders committed by whites about 2x higher than they really are, which in turn makes the huge disparity between the murders by blacks compared to whites even more disproportionate.

IDK what you are talking about saying I'm focusing on one group of people for the mass shootings. Yes, I'm focusing on the group that commits the VAST majority of them BY FAR compared to any other group, yet the media turns a blind eye. How can't you see that. I could look at any other race and it wouldn't show anything interesting because it is much lower than what is reported by the media.


As for the 6 million people, that is the population amount for black males aged between 14-35, which is the demographic which commits almost ALL of the mass shootings from that race - so I factored out the infants, toddlers, young children and older & elder men of the group, thus giving the age group put forth. Does that make sense to you?

The reason I reported on this is because the media says that white males are the most likely to commit these crimes which is blatantly untrue which is shown by the statistics. The numbers used were the FBI numbers on shooting/killings where more multiple people were shot and or killed in one event, which is the definition of a mass shooting that the media is using as well as the FBI. IDK how more precise that can be than this.

Where is the supporting data that 1.92% of 336M people commit a mass shooting crime? This is saying 6 million people commit mass shootings and uh...that is wholly inaccurate. It's more around the 5,000 mark. Not 6 million.

On average gun deaths in America ranks 15th in causes of deaths each year. If the left would stop being brainless sheep and media lap dogs they would realize the more dangerous weapon a person holds in their hands is the fat laden food they put in their mouth each day which is what contributes to the #1 cause of death in the US year over year.

Heart disease.


Wow, talk about a straw man argument. I explained the 6 million in the above reply. It is simply the same grouping that the MSM is using to point the finger at whites, but they are ignoring all the black mass shootings which are HUGELY disproportionate to white mass shootings, even if we didn't calculate it per captita, blacks would have a MUCH higher rate of mass shootings, which is saying A LOT considering the difference in population!

I'm not seeing any stats on murder at that page.

Where did the 75% come from?

Fix Chicago before you fix the rest of the country...

Fix Chicago, you have my complete support.

Fix Chicago, you might just have the worlds support.

Didn't this start with the Zimmerman/Martin incident? The media was so excited to report a white guy shot and killed an unarmed black "kid", then they got blasted for calling Zimmerman white when he's actually Hispanic, so the term "white-Hispanic" became a thing. If it didn't start there, it certainly ramped up the usage of the term in the mainstream media.

The FBI stats linked have an ethnicity category which tries to sort out the hispanic and non-hispanic segments. Got to remember that both blacks and whites can be hispanics.

OP still hasn't posted how he got the 75% figure.

You'll find that illegal aliens commit 43% of all crimes in America too. It's stunning.


Got some source material for that? Seems implausible. Not saying its not true, but surprised it isn't the talk of the town if it is.

Congratulations on your fixation.
What is your solution?
Be honest.


Your last two words answered it. Honesty. Since we can't help them, maybe a little reality will motivate them to help themselves.

That could be a start. Not a good idea to stigmatize "irregular" families though.
Sometimes families are broken by the judicial system as well. It plays favorites.
One guy gets a slap on the wrist, another gets 5 to 10. These days there are decent odds that it's to put butts in privatized prisons.

I'm hoping the OP chimes in with solutions too.


That's because the one getting 5 to 10 already had a slap on his wrist. Multiple times more than likely.

Actually, after a few generations of assimilation, latinos do increasingly identify as white in the US.

The information in the thread pretty much matches what I found when I researched the subject a few years back. There are some pretty bad gangs in the cities.


In the 90's, when reality wasn't looked at by democrats as racist like it is today, Clinton increased law enforcement by over 100,000 in an attempt to curtail gangs and gang activity in high crime areas. Now the police can't even do their job without being called racists.

So when we say "mass shootings" , we talking about gang violence or just strolling into a movie theater or school and killing a bunch of random people just because "I had a bad day"?

Edit: oh wait, just read. This is another "poor us white people " thread.


When we're talking about mass shootings, we're talking about people who kill four or more people.

I like your attempt to play the victim while pushing the victim status on everyone else.

I'm not convinced the parent issue is the root cause and not just one of several problems of which it is sometimes a cause of and sometimes the symptom of. There's a whole bunch of issues at work here and I'm not convinced dad staying home with the first woman he got pregnant will fix the situation. It's a lot bigger and more complicated than that.


The first step would be dad not getting mom pregnant if he didn't plan on sticking around.

I've pointed out these facts on numerous threads, in particular ones regarding gun control.


I've stated before that America doesnt have a gun control problem, we have a fatherless black Male problem if you actually look at the data.

I'm a black Male. Anyone who is honest and logical know this data to be true. The problem is our liberal society doesnt actually want to solve the problem so they choose to ignore the facts.


Exactly. Because the left needs society to be dependent on them.

Ok then chicken and the egg question. The black community didn't start with the fatherless problem so it's clearly not what caused things to get this way. It might help keep the problem going but it didn't and thus isn't the cause.

So the big question is, what created this problem in the first place? It was neither slavery or Jim Crow laws as there were full black families that stuck together after slavery and during Jim Crow. I could be wrong but historically speaking the fatherless issue is more recent than all that.

What got the ball rolling. The black community didn't just wake up fatherless one day.


Welfare dependency. A single mom would get more money for more kids.

Regarding mass shootings by Blacks, I think the reason they aren't looked at the same way is that they're a different type of mass shooting. Yes, they both involve bullets being lodged into bodies, but mass shootings by Blacks tend to have a "purpose" (however stupid that purpose may be.) Retribution, gang territory, etc.

Mass shootings by Whites tend to be unchecked mental illness. Or the mentally ill modulated by drugs affecting brain chemistry (i.e. SSRI's), and then swinging out of control when off meds, etc.

In other words, other than crossfire, most people know if they don't put themselves in the situation, they're not going to be targeted by a Black shooter. However, the White mass shooters tend to want to kill bunches of people indiscriminately, for no reason other than to end lives.

As a White guy in the suburbs, I personally feel much more comfortable with Black crack dealers in the hood having a whole arsenal than with a mentally ill White teenager who may or may not be on his "don't go full-blown insane " medication with a single firearm.

Its two completely different sets of problems. People who would have been in mental hospitals decades ago should never have access to firearms. "Inner city" Black fathers need to get their # together and stop the cycle of abandoning their children and start raising functional families.

So again why are people against abortion?


Because we're against taking the lives of innocent babies. If you aren't ready for a baby, don't do the single thing that causes pregnancy. It's as simple as not wanting a speeding ticket and increased insurance. Don't effing speed. It doesn't get any simpler. You shouldn't get to create life and then take it away because it's a burden on poor pitiful you.

I agree. Black immigrants have done much better, e.g., Nigerian-Americans may be the most highly educated ethnic group in the nation.




Besides Asians, Indians, Europeans, etc. etc.

Oh I know. I grew up in the era of blonde jokes. I happen to be blonde. I'm sure we are all familiar with *that* stereotype.


Yep. blonde here, and blue eyes. Thanks be to AOC for taking the attention off of blonde jokes.
