I've seen some people say blacks commit the most crimes and when they say this they get some replies saying, "White collar crime is the biggest, so you're wrong."

I have to bring this up since some of you reading this agree that white collar is the biggest problem. But guess what? NONE of you who agree with that reply above have bothered to look up or call your local police department to find what sorts of crimes are classified as "white collar"- instead you've all "assumed" it refers to "Corporate white men in business suits" (what a MYTH!) and you couldn't be more than way off. Do your checking, look it up or call your local police and ask, you'll get a suprise and find these below are ALSO called white collar crimes :

-welfare fraud (mostly committed by blacks, btw)
-idenitity theft (also most committed by minorities, that being the illegal sector)
-theft
-forgery (this would include that involved in identity theft cases)
-check fraud (mostly committed by blacks)
-credit card fraud
and there's more....

So much for what your reply has been to that pont above in the first sentence "White collar crimes are the biggest" (you all say this as a reply because you've fell for the MYTH that it refers to white men in corporate America), yes but you DIDN'T KNOW that includes tons of crimes committed by minorities and many of those are committed at an epidemic rate.

Sorry all, you goofed.

Yes really. Look it up. Check with law enforcement to what's defined as white collar crimes. You'll see what I mean.

Blacks are 2.5 times more likely to be convicted of white collar crimes despite being waaay underrepresented in the workforce. DOH!!!
If you're talking about CEOs, stock brokers etc. then there arent many blacks embezzling from their companies prolly 'cause there arent many blacks who are CEOs of any companies. You should check out 'White-Collar Crime' By Michael L. Benson, Sally S. Simpson if you're really interested in this.

And as far as the worst type of crime...most people would prolly still say that murder and violent crime in general is the worst. And I'm sure you've seen the stats on that.

Oops, sorry, I didnt really read you're post, I s'ppose, other than the opening lines saying "whites...white collar crime". Sorry, looks like we agree on the racial aspect of white collar crime. Pretty good post, by the way; I really do wish I'd read it all the way through to begin with.

Does it matter what the crime is called or the demography of the criminal involved in the crime?
It is still crime.
Now, if this is a rebuttal to defining types of crimes using racial profiling, then that is silly because desperate criminals show up in all shades of color which is a statement that nulls the instigators of this particular argument.

Plus, all criminals might wear nice orange jump suits.
So just call all crimes "orange collared crimes".

What's the point in my bringing it up? Guess I wasn't clear, I'll restate it :

Point is -
My 1st post proves the "opinion" some people are preaching is bogus. What opinion of theirs do I refer to? When they say this :
"Minorities don't commit the most crimes. What about white collar crime?... it's all white business people."

My 1st post proves their point is a BOGUS one.

Blacks commit crime that is way out of proportion to their 13% of the population--One may summon a discourse on the etiology of black crime if one wants to...or we could just not care, and just give harsher prison sentences,and, ideally, expulsion from the country for all blacks who so much as shoplift(and there's plenty of those)

Thats right buddy! you hit the nail right on the dam head! you white guys get away with murder! You been doing it for years and years and blaming it on the black guys and getting them hung in your dam place, when you know it should have been your asses swinging from that rope! dont try and say it did'nt not happen and still does to a great degree! you are a dam liar if you say it don't! but that is what you do best though you are walking lies! Whites have killed blacks and gotten away scott free, but when they said O.J. killed just two whites you crackuhs went crazy because you all feared that he did what you all have always done and that is get away with it! and that ain't suppose to happen so you set hid dumb ass up and got him on a robbery charge for stealing back his own dam shit! He was a fool to fall for that bullshit! and he belongs right where he is for trusting your asses! he beleived in the myth of the benovolent white man!

Actually, whites commit more crimes than blacks, this really shouldn't be surprising considering Blacks only makeup 13% of the US population. Now, if you are going to say a white guy and a black guy walk into a bar who is more likely a criminal. I would say the black guy because blacks as a group have more criminals per ca-pita than those from the white group. Also, you figure blacks make up 13%-14% of the American population but account for 50% of all violent crime in the US. Its a sad statistic but its the truth, clearly there is something wrong in the African American community.

Interesting replies my thread has generated.

Nice to see some people agreeing with what I pointed out. Although I'd think after SEEING with their own eyes the information on the FBI's site, how can anyone claim the opposite? Dunno, blind I guess.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
