From the Toronto Star:

‘A pandemic of grief’: StatCan’s first-ever data on Black victims of homicide prompts calls for targeted trauma services

By Nadine Yousif Local Journalism Initiative Reporter
Mon., Nov. 16, 2020 timer5 min. read

For the first time ever, Statistics Canada has released race-based homicide data that reveals a stark representation of Black Canadians among homicide victims in 2019, prompting calls for targeted mental health programming for members of the Black community.

StatCan’s 2019 homicide data, released on Oct. 29, shows one-third of homicide victims were visible minorities — 44 per cent of whom were identified as Black, yet Black people account for only 3.4 per cent of the Canadian population. This means Black people are 4.3 times more likely to be victims of homicide in Canada.

Actually … the way to calculate this is not versus the total population but versus the nonblack population: I come up with Canadian blacks being 4.5 times as likely to be homicide victims per capita as Canadian nonblacks.

That’s not really that bad, because according to the CDC, in 2019 American blacks were 7.3 times as likely to be homicide victims as American nonblacks.

According to the FBI, U.S. blacks were 8.2 times as likely as U.S. nonblacks in 2019 to be known homicide offenders.

So, if the same proportion of interracial crimes hold as in the U.S., Canadian blacks are probably somewhere about 5 times as likely to be known homicide offenders, which appears to be somewhat better than blacks in the US and possibly in the UK.

    Mike, I used to read both the Toronto Sun and the Toronto Star on line. It was like reading the NY Daily News and the NY Post, same city polar opposite views. But then they stopped allowing comments, which I never did anyhow, but I stopped reading at both sites. You read the news for the articles and read the comments for the truth. Years ago one of the two papers, I forget which one, called black crime in Canada the problem no one wanted to talk about. Canada, as a country, never had legal slavery. Canada was the terminus of the the "Underground Railroad." Canada has a dismal history when dealing with their indigenous people, but blacks are their problem. I see a patern here.

    White Canadians are 73% of the population, but 45% of the homicide victims. Blacks are 3.4% of the population, but 14.5% of homicide victims.

    Therefore, Blacks commit homicide at 6.9x the White rate in Canada.

  6. On the rare occasion Jordan Peterson is both lucid and succinct, he pointedly describes Canadian Indians getting so drunk they fall asleep in the snow to never awake. But sensible Canadians should worry about the fate of blacks.

  7. The solution is clearly to give each BLACK! Canadian a $30,000 cheque, forgive all their debts, erasure of their Canadian citizenship and a one-way plane ticket to their African country of choice where they will no longer be subjected to white supremacy voodoo evil dirt that results in them mysteriously dropping dead from homicide for no reason at such appalling rates.

  10. Canadian Amerinds are a pretty violent lot:

    In 2019, there were 174 Indigenous victims of homicide,Note an increase from 141 in 2018. This represents a rate increase of 20% for Indigenous peoples in 2019 (8.82 per 100,000 Indigenous peoples in 2019 compared to 7.36 in 2018. This rate was approximately six and a half times higher than the rate for non-Indigenous people in 2019 (1.34 per 100,000 non-Indigenous people).Note Of the 174 Indigenous victims of homicide, 63% were identified as First Nations, 3% as Métis and 11% as Inuk (Inuit). For an additional 22% of Indigenous victims of homicide, the Indigenous group to which they belonged was not identified. For more information on Indigenous victims of homicide, see data table 35-10-0156-01.

    In terms of gender, the number of female Indigenous victims decreased from 45 to 40, while the number of male victims rose by 20 (from 96 to 116).Note The highest rate of homicide was among Indigenous males (11.89 homicides per 100,000 population), followed by Indigenous females (4.01 per 100,000 population) and non-Indigenous males (2.04 per 100,000 population). Homicide rates were lowest among non-Indigenous females (0.55 per 100,000 population).

    "In terms of gender, the number of female Indigenous victims decreased from 45 to 40"

    At least 80% of these are killed by Native perpetrators, but the remaining eight or so victims who are killed by non-Native perpetrators (of any race), despite their deaths being entirely unconnected, are widely said in Canada to be victims of a white-led "genocide". Another collective smear against people of European descent.

    There's also the "critical mass" theory. I've always thought that there was something to it. Black Americans inhabit their own cultural zone, one which is quite distinct from the broader European-American culture. Canadian Blacks, being considerably less numerous, seem less separate from their White compatriots. That might make them a tad less violent than their counterparts in the US.

    Race, Crime, and Criminal Justice in Canada
    https://www.researchgate.net/publication/274314275_Race_Crime_and_Criminal_Justice_in_Canada

    Abstract

    Canada effectively bans systematic collection and dissemination of racially disaggregated criminal justice statistics. …. Aboriginal and black Canadians are grossly overrepresented in Canada’s correctional institutions. Some evidence suggests that both Aboriginal and black populations are overrepresented with respect to violent offending and victimization….

    This is a case where the lefties don’t want to collect race data because it will empower racists, but blacks want to collect race data to prove racism, similar to the Covid data wars. (How about just collecting data so, you know, we’ll have data and we’ll know what the hell is going on?)

    I learned the phrase “visible minority,” apparentely Canadianese for “people of color, excluding indiginous.”

    A lack of readily available criminal justice data disaggregated by race makes it particularly difficult for researchers to examine the nature of these racial differences. Thus, we are unable to determine the extent to which higher rates of offending among certain racial groups and discrimination in the administration of criminal justice contribute to the apparent overrepresentation….

    …. perceive bias in the criminal justice system. These public perceptions are supported by data that show that certain racial minority groups, particularly Aboriginal and black Canadians, are grossly overrepresented in Canada’s correctional institutions…. We cannot discount, however, the probability that increased rates of offending among certain racialized groups contributes to their overrepresentation in correctional statistics. As we show in this essay, research suggests that Aboriginal and black Canadians are overrepresented with respect to violent offending and victimization….

    Canada’s reluctance to acknowledge and document race is most evident in the operation of its criminal justice system and in its criminal justice policies. Unlike in the United States and the United Kingdom, where race-based criminal justice statistics are readily available to the public and researchers alike, the Canadian criminal justice system does not systematically collect or publish statistics on the race of individuals processed through the system

    … many minority groups now advocate for the collection and publication of these data as a means to redress racial discrimination in the administration of criminal justice. It is now primarily Canadian police agencies that are openly expressing their opposition to the collection, analysis, and dissemination of race-based statistics, with many officially or unofficially refusing to send data to national reporting agencies….

    As with criminal victimization, some Canadian data suggest that Aboriginals and African Canadians may also be more involved in some types of crime than are members of other racial groups. We might infer, for example, that blacks and Aboriginals are significantly overrepresented among homicide offenders—at least in some jurisdictions. As discussed earlier, black and Aboriginal homicide victimization rates are significantly higher than the national average. Since the vast majority of all homicides are intraracial (i.e., victims and offenders come from the same racial background), many observers have begun to refer to this phenomenon as “black-on-black” or “Aboriginal-on-Aboriginal” violence.

    Many have argued that relatively high rates of homicide and gun crime among African Canadians and Aboriginals in Canada are reflective of their overrepresentation in street gangs. Unfortunately, official police statistics on Canadian gangs are almost nonexistent.

    “Brother, I’ve found my roots!” the African-American crows. A local shakes his head, wondering why anyone with a coveted United States passport would choose to move to Ghana. “Move to the Motherland?” the Ghanaian cries, “I want to escape the Motherland.”

    Mr. Sintim-Misa’s story gets laughs because it rings true. Last year, the number of Ghanaians applying to legally enter the U.S. tripled. In the same year, Ghana’s currency lost nearly two-thirds of its value against the dollar. So many skilled and educated Ghanaians have fled that Mr. Sintim-Misa has the impression that “nobody wants to live in Ghana anymore.”

    Nobody, that is, except African-Americans.

    Wakanda ain’t real, and only American blacks seem not to know that.

    The country’s appeal is not always obvious. Electricity and water supplies are often interrupted. Malaria is rampant. Wages are meager by U.S. standards. Given the number of people leaving, the arrival of enthusiastic African-Americans might be expected to delight Ghanaians.

    It doesn’t. Far from seeing African-Americans as kin, most Ghanaians lump them together with other Americans, calling the whole lot obruni, which in the local Twi language means “white” or foreigner. With better education and deeper pockets, African-Americans strike many Ghanaians as arrogant. “When they get into any situation they want to take over, and we are not like that,” says R. William Hrisir-Quaye, an official with Ghana’s commission on culture.

    Indeed, many black Americans living in Ghana find they aren’t particularly welcome — and wonder whether they need a new civil rights movement to secure a place in their adopted home. Ghana forbids American residents from taking most government jobs. Hospitals charge them higher fees. Americans can’t vote in elections or participate in local politics. It is virtually impossible for them to obtain citizenship, or permanent “right of abode,” even after marrying a Ghanaian. The infamous slave castles along Ghana’s coastline impose entrance fees on Americans that are 30 times as high as those paid by locals.

    All this annoys Yvetta Shipman, who moved here from Atlanta five years ago with her husband, gave birth to a child, named FreeSoul, and started a business exporting locally made clothes. The 37-year-old Ms. Shipman realized a longtime dream by moving to Ghana and connecting with her heritage. In Ghana, she made friends and gradually learned local ways, but still felt like an outsider, she says. After three years, she tired of Ghanaians seeing her “not as a black sister, but as a dollar sign,” and moved back to the U.S.

    I think we should pay American blacks to move to Ghana or at least pay for a free trip there. Should be eye-opening for American blacks. Some of them might even be a tad more grateful to their country for creating the most hospitable society for blacks in the whole world.

    I wouldn’t hold my breath on the last part. Blacks in America are coddled more than any minority in history. A trip to Ghana ain’t going to cure their sense of self-delusional entitlement.

    Especially any black who would want to travel to Ghana in the first place. My sense for a while has been that mixed race blacks are the most self-deluded about how supposedly racist America is. It may have something to do with (their own perception of) not being totally accepted by either black or white communities. There’s a sense they need to prove their blackness, which in 2021 they think means going along with the woke religion.

    IIRC-Didn’t the mulattos originally kick out the French in Haiti. Only later to be kicked out by the pure blacks?

    Violence seems to be much more a matter of culture than is cognitive ability, so I don’t think the problem of black violence is unfixable. Southern whites are more violent than northern whites, and according to Steven Pinker homicide rates in medieval Europe where 80 times what they are today. (Yes, I’ve seen the argument that violent people were systematically culled from the population through the death penalty, and there may be something to that, but I don’t think it’s sufficient to explain the decline. It seems intuitive that it’s easier to make people violent than it is to make them smart, and therefore it must also be easier to make them less violent).

    IIRC, the most ambitious (and expensive) forms of Head Start did not permanently raise IQ, but they did have lasting effects on sociability into adulthood - ie still stupid, but less violent and anti-social.

    Everything is a genotype by environment interaction. Dark Mexicans raised in the US from birth reach a taller height than the Dutch of 200 years ago. Obviously the former still have inferior height genetics (at least if you want to be tall). Similarly, I assume you can make Black Africans less violent, but it’s going to take a lot more work than making Koreans non-violent.

    It also goes without saying that indoctrinating Blacks with a deep resentment of Whitey doesn’t help anything.

    As an aside, it’s important to distinguish between inter and intra-group violence. High IQ groups actually have greater potential for inter-group violence because of social cohesion and cooperation. For example, the Japanese and Germans don’t tend to kill each other, but watch out if you’re their international neighbor. At the other end of the spectrum, no one is worried about being invaded by Angola.

    "Brother, I've found my roots!" the African-American crows. A local shakes his head, wondering why anyone with a coveted United States passport would choose to move to Ghana. "Move to the Motherland?" the Ghanaian cries, "I want to escape the Motherland."

    Mr. Sintim-Misa's story gets laughs because it rings true. Last year, the number of Ghanaians applying to legally enter the U.S. tripled. In the same year, Ghana's currency lost nearly two-thirds of its value against the dollar. So many skilled and educated Ghanaians have fled that Mr. Sintim-Misa has the impression that "nobody wants to live in Ghana anymore."

    Nobody, that is, except African-Americans.
     
    Wakanda ain’t real, and only American blacks seem not to know that.

    The country's appeal is not always obvious. Electricity and water supplies are often interrupted. Malaria is rampant. Wages are meager by U.S. standards. Given the number of people leaving, the arrival of enthusiastic African-Americans might be expected to delight Ghanaians.

    It doesn't. Far from seeing African-Americans as kin, most Ghanaians lump them together with other Americans, calling the whole lot obruni, which in the local Twi language means "white" or foreigner. With better education and deeper pockets, African-Americans strike many Ghanaians as arrogant. "When they get into any situation they want to take over, and we are not like that," says R. William Hrisir-Quaye, an official with Ghana's commission on culture.

    Indeed, many black Americans living in Ghana find they aren't particularly welcome -- and wonder whether they need a new civil rights movement to secure a place in their adopted home. Ghana forbids American residents from taking most government jobs. Hospitals charge them higher fees. Americans can't vote in elections or participate in local politics. It is virtually impossible for them to obtain citizenship, or permanent "right of abode," even after marrying a Ghanaian. The infamous slave castles along Ghana's coastline impose entrance fees on Americans that are 30 times as high as those paid by locals.

    All this annoys Yvetta Shipman, who moved here from Atlanta five years ago with her husband, gave birth to a child, named FreeSoul, and started a business exporting locally made clothes. The 37-year-old Ms. Shipman realized a longtime dream by moving to Ghana and connecting with her heritage. In Ghana, she made friends and gradually learned local ways, but still felt like an outsider, she says. After three years, she tired of Ghanaians seeing her "not as a black sister, but as a dollar sign," and moved back to the U.S.
     
    I think we should pay American blacks to move to Ghana or at least pay for a free trip there. Should be eye-opening for American blacks. Some of them might even be a tad more grateful to their country for creating the most hospitable society for blacks in the whole world.

    Historian Marcel Trudel recorded approximately 4,000 slaves by the end of New France in 1759, of which 2,472 were Aboriginal people, and 1,132 Blacks. After the Conquest of New France by the British, slave ownership remained dominated by the French. Marcel Trudel identified 1,509 slave owners, of which only 181 were English.

     


    Black slaves lived in the British regions of Canada in the 17th and 18th centuries—104 were listed in a 1767 census of Nova Scotia, but their numbers were small until the United Empire Loyalist influx after 1783. As white Loyalists fled the new American Republic, they took with them about 2,000 black slaves: 1,200 to the Maritimes (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island), 300 to Lower Canada (Quebec), and 500 to Upper Canada (Ontario). In Ontario, the Imperial Act of 1790 assured prospective immigrants that their slaves would remain their property.[28] As under French rule, Loyalist slaves were held in small numbers and were employed as domestic servants, farm hands, and skilled artisans.

    There’s also the “critical mass” theory. I’ve always thought that there was something to it. Black Americans inhabit their own cultural zone, one which is quite distinct from the broader European-American culture. Canadian Blacks, being considerably less numerous, seem less separate from their White compatriots. That might make them a tad less violent than their counterparts in the US.

    I wouldn’t hold my breath on the last part. Blacks in America are coddled more than any minority in history. A trip to Ghana ain’t going to cure their sense of self-delusional entitlement.

    Especially any black who would want to travel to Ghana in the first place. My sense for a while has been that mixed race blacks are the most self-deluded about how supposedly racist America is. It may have something to do with (their own perception of) not being totally accepted by either black or white communities. There’s a sense they need to prove their blackness, which in 2021 they think means going along with the woke religion.

    He spoke about how all his neighbors have Hate Has No Home Here type lawn signs. He and his wife went door to door to give their side of the story and were met with sullen stares.

    Maybe you should put up a lawn sign yourself, like

    Canadian Amerinds are a pretty violent lot:

    In 2019, there were 174 Indigenous victims of homicide,Note an increase from 141 in 2018. This represents a rate increase of 20% for Indigenous peoples in 2019 (8.82 per 100,000 Indigenous peoples in 2019 compared to 7.36 in 2018. This rate was approximately six and a half times higher than the rate for non-Indigenous people in 2019 (1.34 per 100,000 non-Indigenous people).Note Of the 174 Indigenous victims of homicide, 63% were identified as First Nations, 3% as Métis and 11% as Inuk (Inuit). For an additional 22% of Indigenous victims of homicide, the Indigenous group to which they belonged was not identified. For more information on Indigenous victims of homicide, see data table 35-10-0156-01.
     

    In terms of gender, the number of female Indigenous victims decreased from 45 to 40, while the number of male victims rose by 20 (from 96 to 116).Note The highest rate of homicide was among Indigenous males (11.89 homicides per 100,000 population), followed by Indigenous females (4.01 per 100,000 population) and non-Indigenous males (2.04 per 100,000 population). Homicide rates were lowest among non-Indigenous females (0.55 per 100,000 population).

    At least 80% of these are killed by Native perpetrators, but the remaining eight or so victims who are killed by non-Native perpetrators (of any race), despite their deaths being entirely unconnected, are widely said in Canada to be victims of a white-led “genocide”.

    Violence seems to be much more a matter of culture than is cognitive ability, so I don't think the problem of black violence is unfixable. Southern whites are more violent than northern whites, and according to Steven Pinker homicide rates in medieval Europe where 80 times what they are today. (Yes, I've seen the argument that violent people were systematically culled from the population through the death penalty, and there may be something to that, but I don't think it's sufficient to explain the decline. It seems intuitive that it's easier to make people violent than it is to make them smart, and therefore it must also be easier to make them less violent).

    IIRC, the most ambitious (and expensive) forms of Head Start did not permanently raise IQ, but they did have lasting effects on sociability into adulthood – ie still stupid, but less violent and anti-social.

    Everything is a genotype by environment interaction. Dark Mexicans raised in the US from birth reach a taller height than the Dutch of 200 years ago. Obviously the former still have inferior height genetics (at least if you want to be tall). Similarly, I assume you can make Black Africans less violent, but it’s going to take a lot more work than making Koreans non-violent.

    It also goes without saying that indoctrinating Blacks with a deep resentment of Whitey doesn’t help anything.

    As an aside, it’s important to distinguish between inter and intra-group violence. High IQ groups actually have greater potential for inter-group violence because of social cohesion and cooperation. For example, the Japanese and Germans don’t tend to kill each other, but watch out if you’re their international neighbor. At the other end of the spectrum, no one is worried about being invaded by Angola.

My favorite example of medieval England Noblesse Oblige was the guy who, on his 60,000 hectare or so Ranch a couple of hours by plane from Belo Horizonte, had his wife organize a school for the kids of the people who worked and lived there.

    The Welsh can indeed sing, it is enshrined in the second line of our national anthem: “Land of singers and poets, men of great renown”. It appears to be one of those stereotypes that is 100% true: Tom Jones, Shirly Basset, Charlette Church and also all of the choirs you note. Please don’t insult the people of the whole nation with your middle-brow borrowings, though.

    Good comment AJ.

    If i was raised by wolves, i'd be a blithering idiot. (Ok, i realize some of you don't think it took wolves.)

    ...Similarly, I assume you can make Black Africans less violent, but it’s going to take a lot more work than making Koreans non-violent.

    It also goes without saying that indoctrinating Blacks with a deep resentment of Whitey doesn’t help anything.
     
    And not even just minoritarianism. Almost everything "liberals" do makes black behavior worse. Excuse making and welfare make it worse. The path to better behavior is "get your ass up each morning and go to work if you want to eat". And, of course, it sure helps if you haven't given all the unskilled jobs to Mexicans. And vigorous law enforcement making criminality a losing proposition. And push toward social mores where holding a job and getting married are the path to sex.

    Disagree, because that would imply that Lysenko was wrong, and that Lewontin’s keen observation on intra-group differences was no more than a fallacy.

    Every Brazilian and Portuguese I've met has been the coolest guy in the room but always suffered a sad hatred for his country.

    When I was doing Private Bankstering back in the 80’s-90’s the Brazil I saw was, by definition, that of the elite. Always felt safer than in Koch and Dinkins New York .Never saw obtrusive security but I was a bit surprised at how there was often somebody my size 6’3″ 240 in the background when moving around from homes to offices to restaurants. My favorite example of medieval England Noblesse Oblige was the guy who, on his 60,000 hectare or so Ranch a couple of hours by plane from Belo Horizonte, had his wife organize a school for the kids of the people who worked and lived there.
    You are right about Brazilians, a greatly charming people and Brazilian Portuguese is lovely to listen to : “It fills the mouth” as they say.

    (addendum: Security was much more obvious in Mexico City. Often armed guards in the 2-3 car convoys that 2-3 people would move around in.)

    Canada has a dismal history when dealing with their indigenous people, but blacks are their problem.
     
    The only "dismal history" Canada has with the Siberians is either;

    a) White people being massacred and eaten by them, or

    b) White people being fleeced by them for imaginary and invented wrongs.

    White people in Canada have done nothing except try to help these Stone Age misfits, and are rewarded for this help by having created a permanent under-class of lying, swindling useless millstones.

    But you are correct, blacks are a problem in Canada.

    He spoke about how all his neighbors have Hate Has No Home Here type lawn signs. He and his wife went door to door to give their side of the story and were met with sullen stares.

    Maybe you should put up a lawn sign yourself, like

    Bacon
    Lettuce
    Tomato

    to see what the reaction would be.

    Or

    “Hate is Etah Spelled Backwards”

    “It’s OK to be Black”

    “Performative Allyship Has a Home Here”

  103. Steve this is a long complicated story. My cousin is a Professor up there and they do not publish stats on race and crime…although everyone knows the facts of life. In the major City of Toronto and Montreal and Ottawa in the last 10 years…99% of the shooters and enactors of gun crime violence have been black immigrant males…and it goes on from there. The world of Native American crime in all its aspects is another horror story. But the news media and the Politicians treat it as a taboo topic…more money and social programs are recommended by the tens of thousands of hundred grand a year liberal do gooders

    Sorry, no known Brythonic ancestry anywhere in the family– and our kids have nine NE European and British Isles ethnicities.

    But St Pat’s is so fun, why not do it three times in March, on the 1st, the 5th, and the 17th? Plus Tartan Day and St George’s in April. (Oh, and Easter.)

    Friday is St Piran’s Day. However, it’s in Lent this year, so serve the pasties on Thursday or Saturday. Piran, unlike Patrick, was Irish by birth.

    I thought my post #114 was marked in reply to your preceding one about John Cale. I see I neglected to specify "reply" before posting.

    Earlier today, I put on the Cale/Reed 1990 collaboration Songs For Drella, their tribute to Andy Warhol. It's funny to hear Cale -- voicing Andy's innermost thoughts -- on "A Dream," in which he says (as Andy, but then again, who knows?), "I hate Lou, I really do."

  111. Your post’s elegiac tone suggested I ought to check on Cale’s well-being: he turns 79 next week, not absurdly old these days, but he put a lot of miles on the odometer in the ’70’s. As far as I can tell, he’s alive and (knowing Cale) kicking like a mule.

    I have seen him live a few times: once in 1996, at the Knitting Factory on Leonard St. in Tribeca, and then in 2004, at St. Ann’s in Brooklyn Heights. The Knitting Factory show was superior, as Cale was in great shape vocally (unlike former bandmate Lou Reed, who croaked his way through a set at the Knit around the same time; as much as I liked Lou, he should have retired from live performance by that point).

    Cale is at the front of my mind, as Domino Records just reissued his 1982 downer classic Music For A New Society, in a 2xCD package with his 2016 electronic “rerecording” of the same material, titled M-FANS [acronym]. The 1982 original has rarely been out of my CD player for the last week. His best albums — Paris 1919, Fear, Slow Dazzle, Music For A New Society — never date, but always seem fresh.

    Not meant at all to be elegiac. John Cale was always the super presence that would emerge in the rock press every few years in a new project. He is alive and Lou Reed is not. LR had an awful upbringing. I read his bio that came out a few years ago. I saw him once playing solo (just himself) after the VU. Cale I never saw but I am glad you did. Viola? Can you believe his father was a coal miner!!!
