    The other day my Dad was nearly hit with a hammer by a black man (road rage), last week my brother had his phone stolen from a group of black youths the week before that two black men approached my aunt and she was forced to hand over her purse and last month a black man rang my nan's bell and forced his way in, stealing her change and purse
    However, I do have some lovely black friends who wouldn't dream of hurting anyone so I guess it could just be a sequence of consequences!!

    I wasn't aware of this. I'm not sure it's terribly important in the scheme of things though. Certainly not when compared to intellectual ability and testosterone levels. Take Ashkenazi Jews for example. This group has one of the highest incidence of mental disease of any ethnic group. Yet they commit far less violent crime than even Asians.
    Maybe it depends on what type of mental illness, black people are more prone to having schizoprenia/paranoia e.t.c I remember reading this when I was looking at stats on Texas' inmates.

    I think black people commit so many crimes because most of them have no fatherly guidance/discipline (dads are on a *******ising tour in their local borough).

    There's more white people than black people so even if you have even numbers of criminals regardless of colour the victim is more likely to be white.

    Quite simple really. Black people are amongst the poorest in the USA along with the Hispanics. This leads to them being more angry/less looked after. They are ,therefore, more likely to run amok as they have less parental supervision. And it certainly doesn't help that many of these black children's so-called 'role models' are preaching about drug and gun violence.

    Yes many of the inmates in general have had a poor upbringing.

    Them being black isn't causing them to commit crimes. More black people commit crimes because more black people happen to be poor, educationally underprivileged, unemployed, etc.; and those factors cause crimes.

    So of course more interracial crime is committed by the minority. Even with all other factors being equal.

    Absolutely. I don't think black people possess an 'evil' gene, so to speak. (Unless you're talking about a mental illness, of course) :P

    And what do your family do to provoke us blacks exactly? You sure there isn't a banner stuck on the back of y'all heads proclaiming 'DEATH TO ALL BLACKS?'

    Point taken. However, Blacks aren't the only minorities in the USA. What about the Hispanic, Asians, Eastern Europeans, Italians...?

    That's when the other factors such as poverty come into play. But as the figure stands on its own it's a bit of a silly statement to make imo. Far more significant would be the portion of total crime committed by each ethnic group against their % of the population.

    Hold up right there for a second. Surely some of this violence can be written of to provocation. But then you are writing off a whole lot of violence and crime to this and I don't believe that this is necessarily correct.

    Don't spew propaganda all over this forum and, if you are, come up with your own stuff and, perhaps, you may even come up with a decent argument -.-
