Our friends at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government have put together a study on homicide in 24 percent black Boston they have desperately tried to keep from the public eye until today. [The Police and Public Discourse on “Black-on-Black” Violence, National Institute of Justice, May 2015]:

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, 24 percent of Boston’s estimated 618,000 residents identied themselves as black. Between 2000 and 2013, Boston experienced 836 homicides. Nearly 74 percent of Boston homicide victims were black (615 of 836), and roughly 68 percent of arrested homicide offenders were also black (294 of 430). In cleared black homicides (218, 35.4 percent of 615), 91.7 percent of the offenders were black (200 of 218). As figure 4 shows, the year-to-year variation in total homicide counts in Boston is largely driven by black homicide victimization rates. Black homicide victims were primarily young (mean age = 26.6 years, 54 percent were age 24 and younger), overwhelmingly male (91.1 percent), and usually died from gunshot wounds (84.1 percent). Arrested black homicide o enders were also primarily young (mean age = 25.0 years, 59.5 percent were age 24 and younger) and overwhelmingly male (94.2 percent). In addition, 78 percent of black homicide victims (480 of 615) and almost 90 percent of arrested black homicide offenders (264 of 294) were known to the Massachusetts criminal justice system before the homicide incident. Black homicide victims and arrested black homicide offenders known to the criminal justice system averaged, respectively, 12.4 and 12.7 prior arraignments in Massachusetts courts for a variety of violent, drug, property and disorder offenses.

Boston Police Department (BPD) homicide detectives cleared 50.9 percent of all homicide victimizations by arrest or exceptional circumstances, such as the subsequent suicide or murder of the offender, between 2000 and 2013 (426 of 836 homicide victims). Incidents involving homicides of white non-Hispanic victims had an 80.0 percent clearance rate (72 of 90 non-Hispanic white homicide victims). However, BPD homicide detectives only cleared 35.9 percent of non-Hispanic black homicide victims during this same time period (204 of 573 non-Hispanic black homicide victims). is disparity seems to be strongly in uenced by very low clearance rates for gang-related homicides. Only 26.0 percent of gang-related non-Hispanic black homicides (82 of 315) were cleared by arrest or exceptional circumstances between 2000 and 2013.

So homicides involving white victims were cleared in 4 out of every 5 cases, while homicides involving black victims had a clearance rate of barely over 33 percent. One can clearly surmise from this Harvard Kennedy School of Government study on homicides in Boston that blacks represent closer to 80 – 85 percent of the suspects in the murders from 2000 – 2013, were detectives able to solve said crimes.

But, in the black community in 24 percent black Boston, snitches get stitches, right? Why talk to a white detective when you can protect your black brother from the racist criminal justice system?

    Oh I don’t know? To make sure your murdered black brother gets justice? To take dangerous killers out of your community and keep it safe? The black mentality is quite irrational.

    In terms of black privilege, this might be the most amazing article I’ve ever read. Black perp arrested at least eight times. The police collect surveillance footage, DNA evidence, and an ID by his foster mother, regarding his various crimes, mainly car jacking, usually involving a gun, and yet he is never charged by the DA. He tossed a baby seat with a baby in it from a stolen car, left his DNA on the seat, a cup and some other object in the car and yet no charges. It’s almost like someone wants this guy to be preying on New Orleans.

    Most Black homicides are among their own race, they seldom kill a “whitey”. “short fuse” killings dominate Black homicides. Killings take place over love quarrels after dark. As Ghetto night life increases so does the killings. Judges hand out shorter sentences for murders among blacks because of their innate ‘short fuses”.

    ‘Amid protests, USC reopens search to replace Pastides, names interim president’

    APRIL 26, 2019

    Columbia, S.C.

    After a seven-month search, a week of interviews with four finalists and a day of protests, the USC board of trustees voted Friday to continue searching for a president to succeed Harris Pastides.

    The board named Brendan Kelly, the chancellor at USC Upstate, as interim president. He will take on the new role Aug. 1, the day after Pastides retires.

    The board met nearly all day Friday to interview and discuss four finalists, who had been identified just a week earlier. The board had been criticized throughout the week because the finalists are all men, and three of them are white.

    Tensions reached a boiling point Friday when roughly 100 student activists protested the board, not only for selecting exclusively male finalists, but for finalist Robert Caslen’s comments during a presidential forum that binge drinking contributes to sexual assault.

    That pressure seemed to be released, at least temporarily, as student activists celebrated the board’s decision to continue the search.

    “I’m so encouraged and so proud of the Carolina community,” said Lauryn Workman, a USC sophomore and one of the protest organizers. “This is what we have been asking for since Monday. We wanted them to acknowledge this was a broken search process and they did.”

    Asked if the board deserved credit for the about-face, Workman said, “Yes. I commend them for listening to student voices.”

    Megan Rigabar, one of the original authors of a letter complaining about the finalists’ lack of diversity, said she was “ecstatic.” Rigabar read the letter, signed by more than 40 student groups and more than 120 faculty members, during finalists’ meetings at USC.

    “I think this is a sign the university is willing to listen to students and consider gender diversity going forward,” Rigabar said. “The way forward is through dialogue and collaboration, and adding more voices to the mix.”

    The finalists visited USC this week, and each one met with faculty, students and the public…

    My favorite is comparing the city of Baltimore and the state of Vermont. There are almost exactly the same number of people in each. But Vermont has about a dozen homicides per year and Baltimore has about 350. Half of Baltimore’s homicides are people shot in the head.

    Baltimore is 63% black and Vermont is 5% black.

    Vermont isn’t even as much as 5% black, thank God, but the trend isn’t promising.

    Burlington, our largest city is 4.92% black, which means about 2100 blacks in town. They are hysterically over represented in jail, of course. Some college age friends of mine guessed when I asked that a little over half of violent crime in Burlington is committed by the black sliver of the population.

    Just over the past week, 6 blacks have been arrested for killing of a black drug dealer, or being an accessory to the killing. Just that one murder makes the murder rate among blacks about 50 per 100,000 population, whereas those arrested make 287 murderers per 100,000.

    Pics of suspects here, at bottom: https://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/story/news/local/2019/04/26/final-suspect-burlington-shooting-faces-judge-hospital-hearing/3589667002/

    A few years ago Montpelier had its first homicide ever in its 250 year history. A black guy killed some other black guy. This is the town whose high school is proudly flying BLM flags nowadays.

    And so things are likely to get worse. Steve’s observation that blacks do worst in the most liberal towns is certainly evident in Vermont.

    This has been known for a long time. Blacks rioted in Northern liberal cities after the civil rights movement. Remember according to liberal theory it’s White racism that is the cause of all Black problems. Well why weren’t the riots concentrated in the South?

    Hispanic crime rates are also higher in liberal cities. The liberals basically let the Hispanic gangs run wild and you get sort of a dumbed down culture as the result.

    Obviously tongue in cheek but there is a serious point to be made here.

    We don’t have to fully de-convert liberals. All we have to do is show that their narrative of the opposition being “ignorant” is their own wishful thinking. All we have to do is sew the seeds of doubt. Liberalism isn’t strong enough for skepticism. In fact liberals will fight each other if you undermine the narrative.

  17. Kinda agree with Archie Bunker. We know, we know and we’re not surprised that a small percentage of blacks are responsible for the larger slice of crime stats in America. Any large city with even a small percentage of blacks will see a spike in crime they are not prepared for. This is all old news.

    I’ve noticed a big drop off in comments lately. I try to comment on each topic but it does start to feel redundant after a while.

    Maybe PK will allow us to start suggesting some topics we feel we’d like to pursue or stories/studies we don’t have the chops to investigate.

    Here we have absolute evidence of racial bias in homicide investigations. 80% clearance for YT murders, 33% clearance for Nike murders.

    This is so clearly raaaciss, we need to do much more to stamp out this investigatory bias.

    The MSM, opinion makers, politicians, etc refuse to admit the black murder statistics. For this reason, they must be brought out again and again.

    No, very few people are aware of these stats. Most libs put their fingers in their ears when you try to educate them. They have been programmed to reject all facts n science that conflicts with their indoctrination n they will never leave their echo chambers like Buzzfeed to come to Unz or read anything that might educate them.

    The charge of being an accessory to a killing you speak of concerns me.

    Did they help facilitate the killing, or was being an “accessory” somehow akin to being “living bling” or being part of the entourage of the killer?

To those regular posters…keep on. We love you guys and gals.

    Yes.  We knew.

    Dare I say it, but that is the problem.  If you try dumping red pills onto the mushy middle, you cannot make such errors.  They are immediately discrediting.  Everything you write, from the facts at the base to the spelling and grammar to turns of phrase, must be beyond reproach or it WILL be used as cause to ignore, not just what you said, but everything you say in the future.

    You have to be hard on yourself because our enemies won’t give you any mercy and you can’t leave them any reason to disqualify and disregard what you say.  You must sting them, and leave them no way to sting back.

  32. @Archie Bunker

    You just made my point exactly. Mention inconvenient facts to members of the PC Cult n they respond with threats of violence.

    Stats on black crime remain one of the most forbidden topics in the US. Most people are completely ignorant of these stats because the MSM, the schools, n popular entertainment constantly push the notion that most crime is committed by whites against blacks, n that blacks are pure as the driven snow, n black inmates did nothing at all to end up in prison but were capriciously put there by ‘systemic racism’. Mentioning the truth, even gently, typically triggers threats of violence in response to such ‘white supremacist’ statements.

    If you can’t handle disagreement, maybe you shouldn’t post.

  33. @AceDeuce

    Why not just don’t let blacks have guns? Way too rational a solution to ever be implemented here.

    Come on, gentlemen. No need for hostilities between us.

    Archie Bunker was simply making a statement on the seemingly daily redundancy having to do with whatever city with a negro population greater than 4% who are suddenly responsible for the majority of crime.

    As was mentioned to me, we tend to steer the conversations off-topic regardless!

    So, never hold back on making an OT segue. Someone will surely follow.

If not for diversity, equality, n civil rights, this country would be the most prosperous, safe, n educated place in the world. Thanks to diversity, equality, n civil rights, we are instead bankrupt, crime-ridden, n one of the least educated in the world. Despite all this, they still bleat “diversity is our strength”.

    Actually, still one of the BEST educated in the world; Mexican children in the USA perform better than Mexican children in Mexico, let alone Africans.

    It’s only in first-world comparisons that the USA comes out badly.

    Despite all this, they still bleat “diversity is our strength”.

    This can probably be read most accurately as a dog whistle from a certain (((group))).  When they say “our”, they mean something very different than when you and I say it.
