Go to FBI.gov ...select their stats and other statistics, look for 'persons arrested' and then pick a year...any year. Each year, Whites commit about 70% of the crimes, the section for violent crimes2 (which is homicides, manslaughter, armed robbery, rape and so forth) Whites commit about 60% annually, and finally property crimes Whites commit about 70%.
Hispanics are counted as either Black or White, Hispanics are not the only Spanish speakers in this country, all dark-skinned Spanish speakers (from Brazil, Panama and so forth) are counted as Black.
I would expect that you wouldn't know these facts, because you live in a world of stereotypes, not the reality.
Well Whites are the majority population. You have to look at the statistics relative to the porportion of each ethnic group. Do you understand math at all?

It's simple. Blacks deny these stereotypes in fear of having to face reality that indeed these stereotypes stem from the truth. It's true for any group. Blacks unlike any other group have a major issue with self reflection and it's very unfortunate as this could be the beginning to ending their sorrows. White man don't hold them down. Blacks hold blacks down.

Why do some people equate the things they come across in the instance of people or situations and say that means its true for all? don't you think it would be better to consider that just because some fit the profile doesn't mean it's true for the whole? sure some fit the stereotype,so do some caucasions,asians,mexicans,can adians and other races. it doesn't mean that its true about everyone in that race. people are individuals but sometime's follow the crowd feeling the pressure to conform rather than be considered 'different,a wierdo or a class act'.

so for the people you came across may fit your conception but your conclusions will always be incomplete and not having met everyone or even the majority of those whom you have profiled. don't base your assumptions off of inexperience. why does it seem that caucasion people like the one that is complaining goes out of their way to stereotype African americans and hispanics? but can't seem to find any thing wrong in their own? they are not perfect beings. life is what you make of it,you got to learn to accept the bad with the good,live life as it comes and stop complaining. they are not bothering you and telling you to empty out your wallet but yet when they rob your butt,you cry. just be quiet,please.

Its not all blacks that do. All I see on here are a bunch of typical racist rants against African Americans. Not all of them that live in the ghetto are bad but I will say that the majority of them are. But that's all people see that don't live in the hood. People that do see mostly stereotypes and every there and then you see something different. And I can honestly say if they ever start kicking people out of the hood then its gonna be the ones that are doing good in life because that's what the hood is a place where people aren't supposed to do good in life.
