One of the many efforts by White racists to demonize Black people has been stopped dead in its tracks, thanks to some updated statistics provided by the federal government. Unlike what appears to be popular opinion, the rate of violent Black-on-Black crime is lower than how often White criminals victimize other White people.

To be sure, “the rate of white-on-white violent crime (12.0 per 1,000) was about four times higher than black-on-white violent crime (3.1 per 1,000),” according to new the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ (BJS)  “Race and Hispanic Origin of Victims and Offenders, 2012-2015” report published last Thursday.

Research for the report was conducted over a four-year period during which “U.S. residents experienced 5.8 million violent victimizations each year.”

Still, not surprisingly, those findings didn’t stop former controversial (read: racist) White House adviser Sebastian Gorka from sticking to his White supremacist script on Monday when he told Sinclair Broadcast stations, “Our big issue is black African gun crime against black Africans.”

The so-called Black on Black crime argument has resurfaced lately in an attempt to delegitimize the NFL kneeling protest of the national anthem, which began to highlight social injustices against Black people.

It appeared as if Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, who is Black, also missed the BJS report.

“One of the most dramatically difficult things to fathom in this country is the amount of lives lost — Black lives lost — as a result of Black-on-Black violence,” Hill said Saturday in an appeal for the NFL kneeling protest of the national anthem to be refocused. “In the same year that we experienced about 259 police officer shootings of Blacks in 2015, there were 6,000 Black lives lost to murders from Black people.”

However, as has long been pointed out, the argument posited by Gorka and Hill is misguided because so-called Black on Black crime is the byproduct of structural racism resulting from centuries of social injustices.

The report did yield one bit of good news in particular: “From 1994 to 2015, white-on-white violence and black-on-black violence declined at a similar rate. White-on-white violence declined 79 percent (from 52.5 to 10.8 victimizations per 1,000 white persons). Black-on-black violence declined 78 percent (from 66.6 to 14.5 victimizations per 1,000 black persons). Information on Hispanic origin of offenders was not collected prior to 2012.”

  1. People always fuck up statistics because of the numbers in relation to the population size, per capita and socioeconomic factors like poverty etc. Also whites may be over inflated cuz people’s own selfreporting like light mixes reporting either or. You don’t see one statistic that includes the large segment of the population, the love children between whites and blacks. So where they going in these figures? Just saying there’s always been way too much weight put in numbers. Look how it was David’s sin when he did the first census in Israel and how it angered God. Racists will skew numbers to their own end to dehumanize those they hate

  2. Just the facts on said:

    The headline compares “Black On Black” to ”White On White”, but the “proof” in the article gives the numbers for “white-on-white” and “black-on-white”.

  3. It’s no surprise an article on this biased website only mentioned a small piece of that BJS report. …and this is the problem with the media.
    Here’s the full report:
    During 2012-15, the rate of white-on-white violent crime (12.0 per 1,000) was about four times higher than black-on-white violent crime (3.1 per 1,000). The rate of black-on-black crime (16.5 per 1,000) was more than five times higher than white-on-black violent crime (2.8 per 1,000). The rate of Hispanic-on-Hispanic crime (8.3 per 1,000) was about double the rate of white-on-Hispanic (4.1 per 1,000) and black-on-Hispanic (4.2 per 1,000) violent crime.

    Hmmmm….but this article only published a CERTAIN portion of it. Surprise, surprise!

    Translation: “We are not responsible for when we victimize each other. White people are responsible both for their victimization of us and our victimization of ourselves, we bear no responsibility.”

    This would be hilarious if it wasn’t so damn tragic.

  5. Sick of European invaders saying Black African. Africans are Black! They are not White!!!! Go to Asia and invade China. Call yourself Chinese/Asian! They won’t let that happen! So don’t try it with us Africans! You are not one of us! Just because you live on our SOIL! Does not make you African! Your citizenship is South African amd thats it! You are not apart of our culture, our genetics, our lineages, our roots, our family! Disgusting

    • Hate to break the news to you but the people of North Africa were no blacker than people in southern Italy or Greece.
      But you go ahead and make believe every African is black like Wesley Snipes.

  6. Ummm, I’m pretty sure 16.5/1000 is higher than 12/1000

    During 2012-15, the rate of white-on-white violent crime (12.0 per 1,000) was about four times higher than black-on-white violent crime (3.1 per 1,000). The rate of black-on-black crime (16.5 per 1,000) was more than five times higher than white-on-black violent crime (2.8 per 1,000). The rate of Hispanic-on-Hispanic crime (8.3 per 1,000) was about double the rate of white-on-Hispanic (4.1 per 1,000) and black-on-Hispanic (4.2 per 1,000) violent crime.

      Your correct. Who ever wrote this completely misunderstood the data in the report. According to the report Black on Black crime is 25% higher than White on White crime. The headline is patently false. Does anyone edit this magazine?
