The Color of Crime

Pat Buchanan has good piece with some handy stats at Townhall, entitled "The Color of Crime." The statistics, which somehow never seem to make it to the major networks, indicate that most crime against blacks is committed by blacks,and most crime against whites is also committed by blacks. Interesting, and like I said, some handy statistics.

Here's the thing. The major media always hypes the white prejudice angle. They are sooo decades behind the curve. Since the 1960's, whites have been conditioned to not be prejudiced against blacks. It was simply socially unacceptable, as evidenced by whites being forbidden by law to not allow blacks into certain communities, clubs, organizations, etc. Blacks, on the other hand, cling to the antiquated NAACP, there are black only music awards, scholorships for blacks only, Affirmative Action programs which many times cause unqualified blacks to be promoted over a well qualified "other."

My conclusion is that whites are not prejudice, but are certainly resentful of all the special treatment something like 9% of the population gets. However, that resentment does not manifest itself in crime against blacks by whites.

However, Mexicans and blacks traditionally do not get along well, as evidenced by the demise of the black gangs in South Los Angeles and the rise of the Mexican gangs there.

Just something to think about.
