From my new column in Taki’s Magazine:
Why do blacks get hassled by the police so much? The Occam’s Razor explanation is the one you are never supposed to mention in public: Because on average African-Americans commit so disproportionately many crimes, especially murders.
I will therefore summarize some important crime statistics from federal government documents.
The most striking fact is that blacks, who have typically made up about one-eighth of the population, have comprised the majority of the country’s homicide offenders over the past four decades.
The FBI states that among 2018 murderers:
When the race of the offender was known, 54.9 percent were Black or African American….
That’s up slightly from the average during the past decade. I calculate from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting publications that blacks made up 53.3 percent of murder and nonnegligent manslaughter offenders over the decade 2009–2018.
