The following graph shows the percentages of Americans, by political orientation and over time, who disapprove of cops striking civilians who punch them: In space to destroy following the death of Freddie Grey while in the custody of the Baltimore PD, I was struck by the then iconic picture of a squad car suffering through...

Sensational stories like these aren't the blog's beat, but this tragedy so trenchantly captures the country's decline it compels comment: Two black girls kill a Pakistani immigrant in the heart of the imperial capital while thousands of National Guard troops occupying the city to allegedly protect democracy against elusive white supremacists who must somehow be...

The following table and graph show per capita* hate crime incidents by state for 2019 as reported by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting program: State Hate 1) District of Columbia 314.6 2) Washington 71.4 3) New Mexico 61.0 4) Massachusetts 57.3 5) New Jersey 54.6 6) Vermont 52.5 7) Michigan 43.5 8) Oregon 43.1 9)...

In the previous post on interracial and intersexual homicide distributions in the US, Kratoklastes and Buzz Mohawk point out these distributions deal with absolute numbers, not rates. By rate, blacks are 11.4 times more likely to perpetrate interracial homicide than whites are, and others--a mishmash category including Asians, American Indians, and many people of mixed... Read More
The FBI breaks offenders and victims down into three racial categories--White, Black, and Other. Most Hispanics are consequently included in the White figures while Asians, American Indians, and people of mixed race are amalgamated into the Other category. All figures exclude homicides in which the race or sex of the offender is unknown: While whites... Read More
A large minority of Americans think Breonna Taylor would not have been shot by police if she'd been white instead of black: From what has been reported, police blindly returned fire in the course of executing a drug-related search warrant when Taylor's boyfriend shot at them, hitting one cop in the leg. It seems neither... Read More
I've no baseline to compare these results to but in combination to the severe lifestyle restrictions and high cost of living--who wants to pay $2500 a month confined to a studio apartment devoid of green space or nightlife?--this appears to presage a seismic shift in the American way of life: The residual responses are "very...

His family members aren't going to be featured at the convention of a major American political party, there won't be any streets or schools named after him, and he won't be the impetus for any kind of cultural or political movement, but we won't let him be forgotten.
From the 2016 Cooperative Congressional Election Study we see that outside the progressive wing of the Democrat party, there is little desire to defund the police: Body cameras are even more popular on the left than on the right. Whether or not this holds remains to be seen. Rhetorically, it'll be tough for the left... Read More
From the same SurveyUSA poll referenced yesterday: "In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue". Sigh. What a sad, pathetic end to a once mighty civilization. Getting humanity off this planet is entirely in Asia's hands now. Unlike the more introspective Occident, the East doesn't have many qualms about colonization--of other lands in the past and,... Read More
The following table shows the percentages of reported stolen property that ends up being recovered and returned to its rightful owner: In just 1 out of every 25 jewelry thefts, the stolen jewelry is recovered. Those dismal percentages are for items victims bothered to go through the process of reporting. The recovery rates for filched... Read More
- When the state says there is nothing to worry about, assume panic behind the scenes: Turns out the problem of police snuffing out blacks isn't as serious a threat to black lives as black-on-black violence is. Nationwide, the police kill around 250 blacks each year. Civilian blacks, by comparison, kill ten times as many... Read More
From a nationwide SurveyUSA poll, the following graphs show the percentages of people who answered "entirely appropriate", "unfortunate but understandable", or "not sure" (fewer than 2% of respondents) to questions concerning violence against police officers, arson and property destruction, and the theft of store merchandise, by selected demographics: Many young leftists are in a revolutionary...

The push to defund municipal police departments is being considered by elected officials in many large American cities: While the concept of "defunding" typically means eliminating funding for a body or initiative completely, recent efforts to "defund the police" make the case for slashing funding to law enforcement and seeing that money redirected to more... Read More
Cell phone video of a white boy being pummeled by several black kids on a public school bus in Florida: From blacks being sent to the back of the bus to whites already there being savagely beaten for sport in a couple of generations. Parenthetically, I've not seen evidence this attack was motivated by the... Read More
From the National Crime Victimization Survey we learn that in Trump's America, blacks, Hispanics, and Asians are better protected from criminal violence than whites are. It's good to be a (non-American Indian) minority. It's good to be an immigrant, too--native-born Americans are more than twice as likely to be the victims of violence as immigrants... Read More
Inexplicably, a demographic breakdown of views on George Zimmerman's acquittal in the case of Trayvon Martin's death has to this point not been provided here. Better late than never! The following comes from a Reuters-Ipsos poll conducted in the summer of 2013. "Neither agree nor disagree" and "don't know" answers, given by one-quarter of respondents,... Read More
It is surprising for many to find out that blacks commit hate crimes at higher rates than whites do. While that's a fact I've been aware of, I was not aware of the similarly 'surprising' discovery that according to the venerable SPLC, black nationalism is more prevalent in America than white nationalism is. This is... Read More
One curious aspect of hate crime, which we are told is on the rise in Trump's America, is how it is predominantly a blue state phenomenon. The inverse correlation between Trump's share of the vote and the rate of reported hate crime incidents is .60. That strikingly robust relationship is buoyed by the District of... Read More
Lynching is a dark and despicable aspect of our nation’s history. We must acknowledge that fact, lest we repeat it. Thank you to my colleagues for agreeing to unanimously pass our Justice for Victims of Lynching Act, and @CoryBooker and @SenatorTimScott for your partnership. — Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) December 19, 2018 This provides a nice...

Foundational for public trust in the American legal system to stand is the acceptance of occasional Type II errors as a necessary concession to avoid Type I errors. A Type I error occurs when an innocent party is found guilty on account of a misreading--or blatant rejection--of the evidence. A Type II error is when... Read More
Z-Man suspects the hammer is about to drop:I think the damage may actually be contained to Gab, which is currently absorbing a coordinated deracination that will see it shuttered by tomorrow morning.Yes, our rulers will use whatever they are able to as a pretense, but silencing the unbelievers and hurling them into the void is easier...

The percentages of respondents who thought the Grand Jury should've indicted police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown: In multiracial societies, you don't use standards of ethical behavior or the morality of actions to assess justice, you assess justice in accordance to race and ethnicity. Brown was a criminal thug who assaulted... Read More
After reading a recent post by Heartiste on a young woman throwing herself on a convicted serial killer old enough to be her father (or her grandfather!) and thinking for the 4,140th time how if the vote was restricted to property-owning married men with children so many social ills would be ameliorated almost overnight, I... Read More
There are a couple of ways I fantasize about this playing itself out: - Trump as Cicero, Brennan as Catiline - Trump as Mark Antony, Brennan as Cicero A historical repetition of either a couple millenia later would fill my heart with joy, though the latter is probably a better fit. The thought of Brennan's... Read More
The prolific Feryl: Using the GSS and ISCO 2008 allows us to compare the responses of police officers (n = 119) and the general public to the question of why blacks have "worse jobs, income, and housing" than whites do. The survey offers four potential explanations and respondents are not limited to choosing just one.... Read More
++Addition++Heartiste has a lot to add. --- In response to GSS data showing that criminals get more tail than those who follow the law do, Jig Bohnson wonders if it is merely a consequence of people at the bottom of society in general both rutting more and ending up in the slammer more: The question... Read More
++Addition++Heartiste has a lot to add. --- Previously unbeknownst to me, in 2012 the GSS asked respondents if they "have ever spent any time in prison or jail". Among men, the mean and median numbers of lifetime female sexual partners by whether or not they've done time (N = 642): Okay, but there's obviously a... Read More
From a SurveyUSA poll conducted in the San Diego metro area on Trump intervening in China to pull the pampered thieves from UCLA out of the hot water they jumped into, we see an uncharacteristically strong level of support from a demographic group not generally favorable to him. The percentages, by race, who say Trump... Read More
From recently released FBI hate crime statistics, we find the number of white hate crime (HC) offenders declined by 3.0% from 2015 to 2016 while the number of black hate crime offenders grew by 15.2% over the same time period. Similarly, the number of anti-White hate crime incidents increased 14.9% between 2015 and 2016 while... Read More
Women murdering men is close to three times as common as women murdering other women is: I stumbled across this while looking for cross-referenced offender and victim data from the latest iteration of the FBI's Uniform Crime Report. The latest year the figures on sex are cross-referenced (that I could find--the report is not intuitively... Read More
A decade ago I did a series of posts showing, in short, that the "hate crime" designation is a way to get to bizarro world validate The Narrative, with designated victim classes actually looking like victims and designated oppressor classes actually looking like oppressors. The FBI hasn't yet released data on hate crimes for 2016,... Read More
A few observations while picking through the 2016 FBI crime statistics follow. AmRen has written most everything there is to be written about past iterations of these reports. Additionally, I'm hesitant to delve too deeply because of the infinitely frustrating fact that non-Hispanic whites are not broken down into separate offender categories. It's infinitely frustrating... Read More
The Nashville church shooting by a man named Emanuel Samson is obliterating The Narrative from every angle. It is the inverse of everything that the Dylann Roof shooting in Charleston in 2015--that provided cover to launch The Great Erasure against the American confederacy--was. - A black immigrant fatally shoots churchgoing white natives. - He is... Read More
++Addition++New information on the killer's history: My insinuation of likely racial motivation for the murders is strengthened. My doubt that the killer will end up being charged with hate crimes is correspondingly weakened. It's unlikely you've heard about this. If not for living in the Kansas City metro area, I wouldn't have either. If the... Read More
More evidence supporting Ben Shapiro's assertion that skin color doesn't matter--it's ideology that does! Opinions of O.J. Simpson (n = 2,988): That black support for Simpson is more than three greater than white support for him has nothing to do with skin color per se. It's the consequence of an unfortunate belief--ideology, if you will--in... Read More
This week we get the US supreme court reinstating most of the travel ban with the rest to be reinstated a few months down the road, the House passing Kate's Law and a bill defunding sanctuary cities, the vice chair of the presidential advisory committee on electoral integrity requesting state-level voter registration data for federal... Read More
Stefan Molyneux's recent interview with John Wright focused in large part on liberal criminality relative to the conservative tendency to abide by the law. My immediate reaction was "racial confounding, this is why understanding HBD is imperative to understanding society". Yes, political orientation among blacks is less predictive of partisan affiliation than it is among... Read More
The second amendment's rhetorical kill shot, in pictures: The police can't--or more precisely, won't--even protect themselves or their stuff. Why the hell would you rely on them to protect you? If you're a husband and/or a father, it's a dereliction of your duty as provider and protector to outsource the physical safety of your family... Read More
The alleged epidemic of police brutality against black bodies sweeping through the nation's urban cores aside, the tendency for blacks not to cooperate with the cops is nothing new. In the 1984 iteration of the survey, the GSS asked respondents if they would feel obligated to report a crime they witnessed occurring. The percentages, by... Read More
Steve Sailer, commenting on the how the head of the DEA, following similar remarks from the head of the FBI, recently insinuated that the year-over-year increase in violent crime is in part a consequence of police being reluctant to confront criminal behavior for fear of their every move being subject to intense (and hostile) public... Read More
The question isn't whether or not reparations should be paid out, it is whether or not they should stop being paid out: From 1882-1968 3,446 blacks were lynched in the US. That comes to an average of just under 40 blacks per year. In 2011, to take a recent year in which data are readily... Read More
++Addition++Heartiste: --- Heartiste's comments on Colorado shooter James Holmes' aspiring harem begs the question of whether or not status, rather than cruelty and violence, is the predominant driver of the female sexual desire on display. Does Peyton Manning--a physically unattractive, salt-of-the-earth niceguy--attract the same volume of mail attention from women that Holmes does? I have... Read More
How the distribution of perpetrators of violent crimes perpetrated against blacks would look in a perfectly diverse, multicultural utopia: How a naif might think the distribution looks based on the perpetual cherry picking and gross omissions served up by the major media: Piggybacking on the 2012-2013 NCVS numbers crunched by Heather Mac Donald, how the... Read More
The DOJ's statistics show that the absurd assertion that 1-in-5 or even 1-in-4 college women have been raped is, well, absurd. The actual figure is closer to 1-in-125*, although it is almost certainly less common still than that, as this rate is arrived at by presuming that 100% of all reported college campus rapes legitimately... Read More
In several exchanges I've had over the last couple of weeks about the putative issue of black oppression by white society, specifically white police forces, it's inevitably argued that there is so much structural racism against blacks that just focusing on the expression of black frustration (ie, riots and looting) misses the point. It's like... Read More
Initially, we hear that a white cop shot a black, unarmed, freshly minted high school graduate. The pretense was something like jaywalking, but of course the real impetus was irrational racial prejudice. The cop was white, the 'victim' was black. What more do you need to know? In response, a feral gang of youths (or... Read More
Social media exchanges, with the germane comments of others in quotes, on a series of incidents that strike pretty close to home follow. --- The innocent angel who was gunned down by the oppressive blue line in Ferguson, MO, going about his daily business filching cigars from an ethnic brave (or foolish) enough to do... Read More
The ghastly murders and despicable evasion of the death penalty enjoyed by the Carr brothers in Wichita are things many people who live in Kansas--let alone the rest of the country--aren't even aware of (unless they listen to Radio Derb, something everyone should be doing), despite the fact that the demographics of the murderers and... Read More
As a prerequisite, please see Heartiste's post on a study positing criminal behavior as an alternative mating strategy that potentially increases evolutionary fitness. It's paygated, so we're just working with the abstract here. Perhaps it is correctly identifying a meaningful phenomenon. Since the magnate threw down the gauntlet, though, there are reasons we might be... Read More
