BJS evidence: 13% of the overall population is demographically responsible for 7 TIMES MORE homicidal offenses

BJS_capture_1980-2008_statsThat screen-capture came from a U.S. Bureau of Justice report tracking 1980-2008: https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/htus8008.pdf

Quoting directly from that source (in case anyone can’t read it): “Blacks were disproportionately represented among homicide victims and offenders.”

“In 2008, the offending rate for blacks (24.7 offenders per 100,000) was 7 times higher than the rate for whites (3.4 offenders per 100,000).”

“The offending rate for blacks showed a similar pattern to the victimization rate, peaking in the early 1990s at a high of 51.1 offenders per 100,000 in 1991.”

“After 1991, the offending rate for blacks declined until it reached 24 per 100,000 in 2004. The rate has since fluctuated, increasing to 28.4 offenders per 100,000 in 2006 before falling again to 24.7 offenders per 100,000 in 2008.”

My response to this: 13% of the overall population is demographically responsible for 7 TIMES MORE homicidal offenses than that of the so-called “white majority.” Causes a person to pause and start paying attention and questioning what the heck is going on.
