    if 75% of all crime and 75% of violent crime is not done by blacks, racial profiling is not supported by the data

    Oh no, we certainly cant make behavioral assumptions based on patterns or anything. That would make too much sense.

    I looked at the chart in your link. It shows that African Americans account for 45% of murders. That is a lot for a group that represents about 12% of the population. Without knowing this topic inside and out, 45% is about the percentage that I expected to find. My assumption was correct, and your chart has supported that assumption.

    You statement is completely inaccurate. Cops kill right at half the number of blacks then white people(Hispanics not included).

    When 12% of a group are responsible for nearly 50% of something, then profiling is appropriate and logical.

    The same logic was used to accuse Jews of controlling all wealth.

    The same logic is used to stereotype all people with Disability.

    Bigotry is evil.

    yes and the charts also shows that 75% of all crimes in the USA are not done by black people.

    And 75% of all violent crime in the USA is not done by black people.

    Maybe the public and cops should stop always assuming that black people are criminals

    I am neither Liberal nor Conservative -- both sides have severe flaws.

    Definitely, prejudice against minorities and people with Disability is more common for Conservatives.

    Totalitarianism is more common for Liberals -- modern US universities have less Freedom then USSR after Stalin.

    In 2017 there were 3000 murders.

    About half of them were done by black people.

    There are 45 million black people in the USA.

    Somehow 1500 of them justify racial profiling and discrimination against the rest???

    .000033 bad guys makes all of them bad???

    Huh...

    There are 45 million black people in the USA.

    In 2017, .1% of them committed a violent crime.

    That's one tenth of 1% of their entire population. And yet that's enough to be afraid of an assumed all black people are dangerous criminals.

    Wow. Just wow. We totally live in an ignorant country.

    When 45 million people are judged by the actions of 1500, all we are seeing is ignorant prejudice and stereotype.

    White people make up more than their population percentage of DWIs and public drunkenness.

    I guess we should be very careful of white drivers and not sell them alcohol?

    Nope. Any rational person would not make such a claim. And, conservatives don't and never will. Thread fail.

    I would still love for someone to explain to me why we should judge an entire people by .001% of their population.

    Thanks

    The real number is between 52-56% of violent crime. And its mainly black males ages 16-39. Which are about 6% of the population.

    If thats not a reason to profile i dont know what is.

    you are posting those numbers with pride, all while pretending they don't' only make up 13% of the population. Have fun with that. If they are so peaceful, go walk around harlem and take a video of it (PROOF OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN)

    Never apologize for posting reality. The raging malcontents find racism in a glass of milk. It's an election year after all.

    You make this too easy. Using your crime numbers and then the percentage of blacks in the population, why did you even bother creating a OP?
    Unless of course, it was to stir the pot a bit.

    Its of note to say that in the UK the stats mirror the US stats almost exactly. The black population of the UK is about 12% yet they commit 50% of the violent crimes and almost 80% of the gun related crimes.

    Lol, your math sucks. You can't see how a demographic group making up only like 13% of the population committing 1/3 of violent crime is a really bad thing??? Sigh...

    Who has said that black Americans are responsible for most of the crime in America?

    Even if your 25% is right it would still be a serious problem for such a small minority to be that crime prone. Nevertheless, race has nothing to do with the propensity of people to commit crimes. Crime in the black American community was low even during the Great Depression.

    You might want to point out that under the current criminal justice system it is not clear that all those convicted of crimes are actually guilty. It is easy to railroad the poor into prison.
