    This isn't true.
    He put it the wrong way, it's not that black people commit more crime. What is true, however, is that different areas have different crime profiles. And yes, in London, while unfortunate, there are certain areas which have a large amount of crime undertaken by black males, primarily gang crime. But, other areas may have crime problems caused by Eastern Europeans.. things like fraud etc. White males are involved in gang crime too... look at some parts of Liverpool for example.

    Another thing we have to consider is the ethnic make-up of a certain area, of course some areas will have most crimes committed by black males, as perhaps they are they make up the majority of the population of a certain area.

    Seems like you're assuming correlation = causation.

    Its correct though nationally blacks are over-represented and Whites are under-representated in crime
    You were quite obviously implying in your earlier posts the actions of "riffraff" were due to their race. Now you're just quoting statistics, but earlier it was racially charged, poorly analysed claims.
