And yet we keep hearing about black-on-black crime because it fits the false media narrative.

and this....

If we think of states as voters -- and they are in presidential elections due to the Electoral College -- then the Moocher Myth is backward. Starting with the 2000 election, the states that have benefited the most from federal spending have voted Republican. Those that pay the most in taxes per dollar received in spending vote Democrat. This paradox occurs even controlling for a state’s per-capita income, total population, racial composition, education level and defense spending.

At the county level, the Moocher Myth is more intriguing. The Census Bureau counts federal dollars in five broad categories: retirement and disability payments, salaries and wages, procurement contracts, grants, and other direct payments. In 2004 -- the last year the Tax Foundation calculated the tax burden per county -- the counties that received the most per person in retirement or grants had higher vote margins for Democrat John Kerry.

But the counties that received the highest per-capita spending in the category “other direct payments” voted for George W. Bush.“Other direct payments” includes Medicaid, food stamps, crop subsidies, housing assistance and many other programs that people generally think of as “welfare.”

Obama's Speech: War With Syria Postponed – For Now

Obama has taken a page out of the Bush playbook by threatening war to win Congressional and international support

In fact, this moment is reminiscent of September 2002, when President George W. Bush threatened war in order, he said, to make the international community face up to its responsibility to make sure Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The result was the imposition of the most draconian inspections regime in history. Bush used the same tactic to persuade members of the House and Senate (among them John Kerry and Hillary Clinton) that he was threatening war to have a better chance making peace.

The difference is that the Bush administration, as we now know, was lying when it said it did not want to invade Iraq. Bush never really had any other intention.(In Iraq, the UN inspectors proved again and again that Saddam did not have those weapons, but Bush and his team refused to listen.)

Obama, for many reasons, not the least of them the mood of the American public after the futile eight-year occupation of Iraq, really does not want a new war in the Middle East.

Just look at Chicago as an example and proof that Blacks kill more Blacks and Chicago has been under Pseudo Liberal Democrat Control for years and it was Otis McDonald who was Black Man that sued the City of Chicago in 2010 so he could carry a hand gun legally to protect himself from the other Blacks in his Neighborhood that were part of the Criminal Element in Chicago.

The Racial makeup of Chicago in 2010 was 32% black(including Hispanics), 45% white (31% non Hispanic white + 14% white Hispanics), 5% Asian(including Hispanics), and 3% from two or more races(including Hispanics).

Now lets look at the homicides for Chicago which 79.6% are Black, 18.9% are Hispanic, and 1.5% are White.

84% of whites who were murdered in 2010 were killed by whites.

95% of blacks who were murdered were killed by other blacks.

quibble over the 11% if you feel the need, but you're still not realistically addressing the problems that white society has. you're so wrapped up in your white victim pathology that you need to blame the problems of white society on everyone else.

clean your own house before you start worrying about the house next door. credibility will allow you to judge others and until then you have no right to act superior.

Nazis Can’t Do Math: Reflections on Racism, Crime and the Illiteracy of Right-Wing Statistical Analysis

White supremacists never cease to amaze me.

So, for instance, ever since my essay from a few days ago went up — the one where I broke down, in painstaking detail, how the notion of a widespread black-on-white crime spree is a statistical absurdity — I’ve been receiving one after another e-mail, in which case after case of crimes committed by blacks against whites are chronicled, usually with links to the news items discussing said crimes.

So far, I’d say, I’ve received about 150 such news items, all from people who insist that these incidents somehow trump the hard data presented in my original column. So if the data say, and they do, that less than seven-tenths of one percent (0.7 percent) of blacks will violently victimize a white person this year and that only about one-quarter of one percent (0.25 percent) of all whites will be violently victimized by a black person this year, that isn’t what matters. What matters is that some little old lady in so-and-so community was beaten by a black man, and so, therefore, we know black people are dangerous, to be avoided, and possibly separated from white people altogether.

If the data say, and they do, that only a ridiculously infinitesimal percentage of whites will be murdered by a black person in a given year (as we’ll see below), this doesn’t matter. What matters is that there was a white family in so-and-so place, who were killed by two black home intruders, and therefore, we know that black people are dangerous, to be avoided, and possibly separated from white people altogether.

That these incidents — awful though they are — do not a social trend make, seems to escape some people. They can send me hundreds, even thousands of cases like this (and indeed, they seem to literally scour the news for any such item, believing each of them to carry some great social weight), and still, the conclusions they would have me, or others, reach from these crimes are ludicrous. After all, for every one of these violent crimes committed against a white person by a black person, there will be at least 4 such crimes committed against whites by other whites. And yet, racists never seem to think much of this; they don’t assume that white criminals represent white America generally, or that their depredations against their fellow whites say anything about the inherent pathologies of their white brothers and sisters.

White-on-white crime (which term doesn’t even exist in our racial or criminological lexicon), is far more prevalent than its black-on-white (or even black-on-black) equivalent, numerically speaking, and yet to white nationalist types, we should draw no conclusions from this at all. White folks can commit mass murder, kidnap, rape, sexually mutilate, or even cannibalize people (like Jeffrey Dahmer, for instance), and represent no one but their solitary selves. Charles Manson is never expected to serve as a stand-in for white folks writ large.

But every black criminal — whether James Edwards, accused of shooting Australian baseball star, Chris Lane, in Oklahoma last week, or the two black teens who beat the white World War Two veteran to death in Spokane a few days later — is somehow taken as exhibit A in the racist fantasies of America’s neo-Nazi set. White criminals and deviants are just bad individuals. Black ones are indicative of a broader cultural or genetic truth.

That people like this consider themselves members of a master race, possessed of superior intellect, and yet cannot understand basic statistical concepts, or understand the difference between anecdote and larger sociological reality, is the very definition of irony.
