Slaughter in the Cities
Steve Sailer

October 14, 2020

Establishment voices are finally, grudgingly admitting that murders and shootings are up spectacularly in 2020. But the reasons, they all agree, are immensely complicated and rather boring.

Perhaps, they muse, it has something to do with lockdowns? Or there could be any number of other subtly interacting factors. Who can tell? In any case, this mysterious rise in violence is beyond the comprehension, much less the control, of politicians. For example, Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight headlined:

Trump Doesn’t Know Why Crime Rises or Falls. Neither Does Biden. Or Any Other Politician.

…We don’t actually know why crime went up this year. To be fair, we don’t truly know why crime goes up…well, ever. Nor do we know how to make it go down in the long term.

So there’s no reason to consider the sudden rise in slaughter in the cities when casting your vote this fall. Crime isn’t something immediately threatening like climate change where voting matters. Instead, the rise and fall of crime is a vast, mysterious process, reminiscent of continental drift in its inevitability, which public policy and media opinion couldn’t possibly affect. Indeed, wouldn’t you rather read about some outrageous tweet by Trump than about this intensely tedious giant outbreak of gunfire?

Seriously, the current shooting spree in our cities is one of the simplest, most flagrantly obvious phenomena in the history of the social sciences. …

Here’s the NYPD’s graph of shooting victims in New York City with 2019 in red and 2020 in yellow:

    A new and previously unknown virus is stalking the land. It infects otherwise perfectly healthy handguns, causing them to jump into the hands of innocent Black Males, and without any reason at all, suddenly start blasting at other perfectly innocent Black Males. It has three variants:

    CoNegroid-22, CoNegroid-38, and the particularly deadly CoNegroid-44. Needless to say, the Health Community is suppressing knowledge of this Virus out of pure Racism.

    ‘Afraid to leave my home’: Residents describe city on the brink at Minneapolis committee meeting

    … Like many others who spoke at Thursday’s meeting, he said gunshots have become a “nightly occurrence” in a city that now has 66 homicides on the year — compared to 48 in all of 2019.

    …“We are in the process of looking for places outside the Minneapolis area,” she said. “We even have friends now who refuse to come down and visit us because they are afraid for themselves. I’m afraid to drive to work and I’m afraid to leave my home.”

    At least two of the residents who addressed the committee said they have found bullet rounds in their homes…

  3. I will read your Taki-mag article in a minute. They’ve been great lately.

    I need to do one off-topic comment here, because the apostrophe/punctuation was a long time ago in iSteve time:

    A big sign in front of a McDonalds said:

    LOBBY OPEN CARRY
    OUT ONLY

    At first glance, I thought, yeah of course I can carry a concealed gun in there, but that’s very nice of them to be so hoplophilic. Then, “I thought this was an OK neighborhood, hmmmm?”

  4. What better time to be a thug. DAs aren’t prosecuting crimes. Criminals released with no bail. Felons released because they could get sick in jail. Every misdeed blamed on systemic racism. Mayors letting their cities be trashed so that it becomes Trump’s legacy. Have I missed anything?

    We need a term for this selective epistemic humility on the part of respectable people in media when it comes to subjects like the causes of skyrocketing violent crime. It’s almost like we’re seeing Crimestop play out in their minds in real time, except that I think most of them know perfectly well what the cause is and just aren’t saying it out loud. It’s definitely obfuscation, but in a peculiar, dorm-room style (“I mean, like, how can you ever really know anything, man?”) from people who don’t normally have that affect in the least. You’d expect them to blame it squarely on white racists, but that’s evidently not what they’re doing (at least some of them). Instead of “Appeal to Authority,” maybe “Appeal to Uncertainty,” or “Appeal to Ignorance” (or “Appeal to Impotence”)?

  12. You brought up the Ahmaud Arbery incident, which seems like ancient history now. I thought that early this year there was one more of these attempts to go nationwide with another Trayvon Martin-like pro-black-violence drive before that (Arbery) one. I can’t for the life of me recall it right now.

    Anyway, the Floyd rioting was what I’d thought was a case of “third time’s a charm”. Now, with what I’ve been reading, I really wonder if it was a matter of the Soroses and such not having their useful idiots and logistics set up yet at the time of those earlier incidents.

  14. From the essay:

    Perhaps my most important insight is that America is steadily regressing toward a 6-year-old boy’s way of thinking. Worse, we are increasingly assuming that you can tell the good guys from the bad guys by the color of their skin.

    Anglo-American progressives once prided themselves that they distinguished the goodness or badness of individuals by consideration of their behavior under rule of law. In the 1861 words of British legal theorist Henry James Sumner Maine: “…the movement of the progressive societies has hitherto been a movement from Status to Contract,” with “status” traditionally having been largely defined by who your ancestors were (noble, commoner, slave, untouchable, or so forth).

    But now we are devolving back toward lowbrow identity-based sentimentalism: For instance, you are now supposed to be able to tell at a glance that these crooks resisting arrest are really the good guys, despite their behavior, because they are black.

    Everything you state is part-and-parcel of America’s descent into third-world status. This is how third-world nations and their people behave. It should be no surprise, and it should also be recognized that it’s no accident. It’s the result of deliberate policy, most notably the Hart-Celler Act.

    To understand what’s going on, you’ve only to understand the forces behind that legislation and every similar piece of nation-wrecking policy they’ve put in place during the past several decades. The mind-blowing part, for me anyway, is that we have to be careful talking about it, even on this site. That’s control. That’s total control.

    From the article:

    Of those 16 percent of all murders that were interracial, blacks were the offenders in 62 percent as measured by the FBI.

    That’s a large percentage for a group only slightly more than one-eighth of the population. But then again, blacks also comprised 49 percent of intraracial murder offenders. The chief American crime problem is less that blacks kill a lot of nonblacks in particular than that blacks kill a lot of human beings in general.

    This is where Steve veers uncomfortably close to saying All Lives Matter.

    I don’t suppose he’d care to rethink that? He probably should, because January and the Gulag are right around the corner.

    There is more geographic political separation these days, so the typical law-and-order types probably don’t care as much about crime in the Big City.

    So, the question becomes, how do Big City White Liberals figure a way to approach the issue to save their lily White asses. Meanwhile, people in Red areas are buying popcorn and watching the slaughter on TV.

  20. The answer to why homicide and shootings are up this year is quite simple, racism. Whether it is evil white supremacists taking advantage of the cover that all of the peaceful protests have given them with the large crowds all to intently watching the protests to identify a shooter or people defending themselves from racists there can be no other reason.

    What is the cause of ineffective shooting performance by would-be Black killers? Is it their negritude, or their fashionable horizontal gun-holding stance? This is one of those rare sociological questions that can be resolved by experiment. Take two murder-comparable cities like Chicago and New York. In one of the cities, offer young Black male residents NRA training in proper shooting stance. A change in the wounded/killed ratio in mass shootings between the two cities would resolve the question.

    This from ATF doesn’t have 2020, but there was a huge spike in NFA applications in March and June of 2020. There is a clear correlation, so the shootings must be caused by the guns, right?

    Better get those schools open complete with high school and NCAA sports or there is going to be a tsunami of angry NFL and NBA wannabes on the streets looking for status in more deadly competition!

  29. Steve quotes FBI stats of 62 percent of murders committed by 13 percent of the population that is black. I would submit it is far more depraved than 62/13. Break out blacks by age and sex, bet you’d find 20 percent of that 13 percent, boys and men, say, age 12 to 35 are responsible for all the black share. While blacks keep their trap shut, 80 percent of blacks commit no crime. It is their young.

    These are my own numbers, back of the napkin stuff, but not substantially out of order, I’d submit them with some confidence. It should always be noticed the whom of the matter, not the entire race. It’s in focusing on the tiny percentage of our overall population that commits these disparities that a solution can be found. But until it can be spoken of honesty, forget it.

  30. Maybe the New York Times is just trying to do penance for the slave-owning of its publisher’s ancestors by giving moral lectures to the descendants of honest farmers on their secret racial biases.

    Just like the New Yorker is doing penance for publishing in the 1930s one of history’s funniest and most racist cartoons, that of the Satanic, fanged black trashcan man waking up an entire Manhattan apartment building on Saturday morning, by devoting every other article and cover to some fantasy of elegant black life.

  35. Arclight says:

    I think a lot of the current whistling past the graveyard on race and crime is that a huge percentage of Democratic supporting/leaning white voters went from living in urban or urban-adjacent neighborhoods half a century ago to largely monochromatic suburbs far from the urban cores. Whereas pre-70s urban whites were well aware of what went on in the more ‘diverse” sections of the city, their kids and grandkids have grown up in communities and schools curated to ensure they don’t have to deal with urban populations/problems while at the same time presenting black misbehavior as either largely a myth or not really their fault.

    The progressive instinct to let blacks off the hook for plainly socially destructive behavior – such as out of wedlock births, crime, and disrespect for behavioral norms – has cost society a tremendous amount while also having the perverse effect of keeping blacks behind the 8-ball even as official barriers were done away with and we implemented affirmative action in hiring, education, and mortgage lending. The current fetish for “equity” is partly a result of the cognitive dissonance on the left about persistent racial gaps despite the aforementioned measures, and partly an admission of defeat when it comes to social engineering.

    If our culture had the nerve from the 60s onward to hold blacks to the same cultural standards it does for whites, the black underclass would be significantly smaller today and we’d have a greater (if not proportional) representation of blacks in a lot of non-governmental fields. But we didn’t do that and our current masters have indicated they have no interest in it either, so we are going to go through a very painful and fruitless exercise in kabuki theater. We’re going to emerge a much more fractured nation, with whites angry at what was meted out to them in the name of equity and blacks even angrier when they still find themselves at the bottom looking up.

  37. Jack D says:

    I realize that the Hart-Celler Act is supposed to be the root of all evil, but this summer’s problems seems to have little to do with that. The main focus seems to be black people, who have been here for a LONG time, long before 1964. The other problem group is Antifa who as far as I can tell is especially attractive to old stock white people, including for some reason a lot of Germans – maybe Germans just like getting dressed up and wreaking havoc now and then.

    The Hart-Cellar immigrants (Asians, Latinos, etc.) seem to be conspicuously absent from this summer’s festivities, except perhaps as the shop owners whose stores are getting looted. Even Jews, the bugaboo of the alt.right, seem to be largely absent. There have been some seemingly promising cases where Antifa with common Ashkenazi names have been arrested but most of the time the glee is premature and they turn out to be German and not Jewish.

  38. TG says:

    Indeed.

    But historically, there have been two episodes in American history when crime spiked. One started around 1965, the other, around 1880. Hm. These were both times when the elites massively increased immigration. The issue is not whether or not immigrants per se are more or less likely to commit crime than natives – the issue is that when the lower end of the working class is suddenly deprived of the ability to make a decent living through honest labor, bad things tend to happen.

    Obviously, the current (still historically modest) spike in homicide is due to BLM and the police being pulled back and incendiary statements by corrupt/moronic politicians and the corporate press.

    But in the long run, what matters for crime is not gun control (witness the sky-high murder rate in gun-controlled Mexico), or locking everyone up (eventually we will run out of prison space. And who will guard the guards when they are in jail?). It’s social cohesion. Continue to destroy the ability of young men of average ability to reasonably support a family through honest work, and things will not get better, BLM or no BLM.

    Ask the ghost of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew.

    When the Biden-Harris presidency opens the door to truly unchecked third-world immigration, as what’s left of our manufacturing is outsourced, as we massively increase regressive ‘green’ taxes on the real economy in order to further enrich Wall Street (no this has nothing to do with the environment), and drive young people into a lifetime of debt slavery that they can never get out from under, and push for things like ‘surprise medical billing’ that can bankrupt even people with ‘good’ insurance, as we have record numbers of evictions and homeless, and so on and so forth… It’s not going to go well. The purpose of BLM is ultimately not to incite violence, but to direct the violence away from the elites…

    If our culture had the nerve from the 60s onward to hold blacks to the same cultural standards it does for whites, the black underclass would be significantly smaller today and we’d have a greater (if not proportional) representation of blacks in a lot of non-governmental fields.

    Unfortunately, no. What little advancement blacks have made has been mostly as a result of affirmative action and government pressure on large corporations to hire blacks such as “disparate impact” suits. A whole black middle class consisting of overpromoted people who really should be doing the menial work that Latinos are now doing has been created. This is a double whammy on our society because not only are they not doing a great job in these positions for which they are not the best qualified but the resulting reduction in the pool of low skilled, low wage labor created a vacuum that was filled in part by imported labor and in part by exported industrial jobs. Meanwhile, a lot of better qualified whites have been squeezed out of the middle ranks and live hand to mouth in the gig economy. This has also suppressed white birth rates as whites cannot afford to start families.

    Go back to Griggs v. Duke Power. Duke Power wanted to use aptitude tests so that they could hire smart (and therefore mostly white) people for jobs requiring skill and judgment (and which accordingly were higher paying) such as lineman or nuclear plant operator. This makes perfect sense – you don’t want stupid people doing this kind of work and putting other people’s lives (and their own) at risk. Duke had nothing against hiring black people but mostly they hired them for “general labor” type jobs (janitor, ditch digger) where high intelligence was not really needed. But the courts said no, unless you can absolutely prove that the test that you give is directly linked to job performance, you can’t give it if black people score lower on it. But common sense tells us that in virtually any job that requires a degree of judgment (lineman, cop, firefighter, crane operator, etc.), all other things being equal it’s better to have someone smarter doing that job.

    That covers a lot of it, and we’re getting two tracks of effort:

    There indeed seems to be a lot of that on the ground. But as we all know, there is no such thing as a “bottom up” revolution. Isn’t now, and never has been. There are financiers and enablers behind the street thugs. For some reason, our FBI seems to have no interest in this, I guess because they can’t spare 15 agents because somebody might see a garage pull somewhere.

    The Hart-Cellar immigrants (Asians, Latinos, etc.) seem to be conspicuously absent from this summer’s festivities,

    Well there was that wog that got busted for trying to set a cop car on fire in NYC. And in fact, there’s a fair amount of Latinos in on the fun. My rough take is that in any ten pictures of peaceful protestors arrested, one or two are invariably Hispanic. They are hardly “conspicuously absent.”

    Very well stated! I grew up in a small town in the Midwest in the 1950s. By white supremacist tradition the town was de facto segregated. There was a well defined black neighborhood centered on the all-black elementary school. Within that neighborhood there were bars, restaurants and churches with exclusively black clientele. There were no “Jim Crow” laws that I’m aware of — the high school was integrated and blacks were employed in a variety of factory and manual labor jobs — but everyone stuck to their own neighborhoods. There was no discussion of blacks in my household, no warnings to stay away from them, and I seldom saw any except when an automobile trip took us through the black neighborhood, which my father referred to as “Baghdad.” Although the “N-word” was used freely by many whites I never heard it at home, and got the impression that it was not to be used in polite company.

    I had no personal interactions with blacks until I worked summers in a factory during my college years. It was a union shop and they seemed to be treated and accepted as equals. Somehow, I’ve never felt deprived by the lack of “diversity” in my life — but have become more and more uneasy as blackness was pushed on us by the government and, especially, the media. The Black Lives Matter demonstrations this year — obviously a politically motivated overreaction to a single unfortunate incident — and worse, the riots, have brought out my quiescent inner racism. Segregation seemed to work when I was growing up, and forced integration has not been a net benefit to society!

Boston is doing fine, and Philadelphia is certainly no worse. I suppose the cynical take is that if COVID restrictions increase black on black crime but reduce black on white crime most white voters aren’t going to feel scared.

    If I understand the reference to “this nonsense” correctly, this is a weird comment — did you read the linked Taki’s piece? Or, try Steve’s amusing riff on that recent WaPo thumbsucker. Here’s a link.

    To Boston and Philadelphia, add Baltimore. Its murders are holding at post-Freddie-Gray levels, thus also somewhat “certainly no worse” — catchy phrase!

    Beyond chastising Sailer for offering a different (albeit more obvious) explanation for a phenomenon that the NYT and WaPo have acknowledged is real: what’s your explanation for why many big cities are much worse from June 2020 on, while certain others are holding steady?

    Maybe the Eye of Soros can’t be everywhere at once?

    My own view is that most citizens (which includes “most white voters”) are dismayed to see the worsening failures of their country’s institutions. “Czarist Russia 1910” is the closest I’ve managed for a somewhat similar period in another nation’s history. What’s your best analogy?

  47. The chief American crime problem is less that blacks kill a lot of nonblacks in particular than that blacks kill a lot of human beings in general.

    Given that blacks killed 2.3× as many non-blacks as non-blacks killed blacks (that’s 22.2× per capita rate!), blacks not only kill a lot of human beings in general but they seek out human beings of other races to kill, both on an absolute and per capita basis, more than other races seek them out. So while it is indeed a problem that blacks kill a lot of human beings in general, it is particularly a problem for non-blacks, and especially for whites, upon whom most black outmurdering falls, both on an absolute and per capita basis.

    Additionally, given the view of the reigning Mulicult/Identity Politics orthodoxy that intraracial killings are politically irrelevant while interracial killings are a New Holocaust, this black penchant for outmurder should be a super-duper concern of elites. But of course it isn’t, because elites are not really concerned about interracial killings in general, only about interracial killings of blacks, and that only when there is political advantage.

    But while murder victims, mostly black, pay the highest price for the high rate of black murderousness, and black bystanders pay substantial prices for having to live around the homicidal, we all pay indirect costs

    Yes, but non-blacks get to pay the very direct price of being the murder victim too. Arguably non-black “racial bystanders” pay a higher such direct price than do black bystanders to their own race’s murderousness. Since there are no figures for dead black bystanders vs. intended victims, we can only say for sure that non-blacks suffer at the hands of blacks much more, on both an absolute and per capita basis, than blacks suffer at the hands of non-blacks.

    Also, note that the FBI stats we are using 1) have the notorious Hispanic muddle factor, which makes non-Hispanic whites appear more murderous than they really are, and 2) since the stats cover only those 2019 murders for which there is a conviction or suspect, which is less than half of all 2019 murders, and that the unsolved majority of 2019 murders are more likely to be interracial than the solved portion, and interracial murders are more like to be black-on-white than vice-versa, that means that these stats are underrepresenting black murders of non-blacks in general and whites in particular, perhaps by a large margin.

    P.S. I’m puzzled by what this means and where the 93% came from:

    … broadly defined by the FBI using only three categories: blacks, whites (including 93 percent of Hispanics) …

    Thanks for your typically elegantly written comment, though I do want to point out (and perhaps vindicate Arclight a bit) that prior to the [anti-]”Civil Rights” movement black socio-economic development was actually better than it was after the [fake] “Civil Rights” era.

    What little advancement blacks have made has been mostly as a result of affirmative action and government pressure on large corporations to hire blacks

    This may deprive blacks of some due credit. Black education and income levels were rising faster prior to “Civil Rights” than after it. Also, black rates of high school graduation, workforce participation and business ownership were higher, while black rates of crime, illegitimacy, and drug use were all lower. In other words, contrary to what one hears constantly, blacks were doing pretty well for themselves in pre-“Civil Rights” America. But this came to screeching halt in the 1960s, and has been getting worse since.

    Other than that, I agree that we’ve compounded the disaster by expensively welfarizing (both on public and private welfare) the formerly productive black working class and importing and discouraging from assimilation a new ethnic working class.

    I agree with a lot of what you posted, but if society had continued to put pressure on blacks (and everyone else frankly) to discincentivize single parenthood, it would have kept a lot of the most impulsive people from passing on their genes, and all of society would benefit. That we didn’t AND increased subsidies for single moms was basically a green light for a baby boom of kids with a high likelihood of having poor impulse control raised by indifferent parents, who then go on to make many, many bad choices.

    Whether these kids all grew up to have awesome high paying jobs maybe not, but it would mean the last several generations would have been better socialized and less prone to acting out that leads to 3rd world levels of crime and the attendant economic damage to our cities.

    The bottom line is accountability still makes a difference in human behavior.

    I agree. Dave Rubin coined the slogan: The Regressive Left. As far as I can see, Dave Rubin was the first to address this problem so clearly.
    Dave Rubin is – historically – right: This collective regression has liberal (or leftist) roots.I have only one little caveat with regard to this genealogical aspect of his reamrk: It should not lead people to think that this softheaded (and wrong-hearted) mentality would be only a problem of the left. In other words: There are lots of reasons for this development on the conservative spectrum too (not least the conservative ignorance towards the problem itself).  

     Is it too much to ask that we have an honest public discussion of what the Establishment is inflicting upon urban America?

     
    Seen from a Kantian perspective – no, absolutely not.

    Seen from a practical perspective – it depends. As Mr. McKenna mentioned in No. 14 above, it will depend a lot on – free speech. An issue, which Joe Biden (and Kamala Harris) neglect. Whereas the New Yorker Donald Trump has clearly spoken out for it. 

    The other aspect which can’t be circumvented is to address the biological reasons for success-differences for different groups in the Western world.
    The time that you could look upon the taboo about this single biological fact as a win-win situation**** might be over. There are winners and there are losers in the biological lottery.

Just as with Jussie, there should be no swift resolution to her case, no plea bargain. She should be forced to deplete her remaining funds on legal fees in a long drawn out process in which the possibility of a jail sentence is dangled over her head like a sword of Damocles and her chances of legal victory undermined by unsympathetic prosecution leaks and press releases. There should be protracted “plea bargain negotiations” in which her lawyer’s meter spins and the possibility of merely having to attend reeducation camp is discussed, but in the end, the talks should break down and they should take her to trial.

    if Biden is elected the protesting and rioting will quickly end.

    The media will stop the COVID fear mongering after Thanksgiving. Colleges, churches and schools will all be open by January. Young people will finally have the ability to socialize in large groups, attend concerts, nightclubs, sporting events. They will also see many more job openings as businesses begin hiring again. The media and the oligarchs will stop promoting BLM.

    The Media sticks with the reduce the constant BLM narrative after a Biden win. The oligarchs will also stop their financial support of BLM and Antifa. This will help stop much of the rioting.

    But the damage to the psychology of Blacks will not be so easily reversed. Crime will continue to rise, as Blacks have been indoctrinated to believe that the entire system is racist against them. They have been told that all their shortcomings are due to racism against Blacks. The anger and resentment will continue to foster hatred against whites, hatred against our institutions and the feeling that they cannot succeed because of systemic racism , regular racism and the constant microaggressions directed at them on a daily basis.

    The Demographics will not improve, thus violent crime will not easily fall back down to pre 2014 levels. It may get worse, as many policemen are retiring. The few whites remaining in law enforcement will be doing less policing and more time eating, avoiding the black areas to reduce their risk of being charged with a racial attack. Blacks will suffer the consequences, with more deaths and violence in their neighborhoods. White flight will continue , as white families flee any area which is over 12% Black. The schools will become more segregated, the gaps will not be closed.

    At this point it appears it will be another close election. We may not know the results until December. Biden may need to step aside for Kamala before the electoral college votes in December. What happens if Biden is incapacitated between Thanksgiving and the electoral college vote ? If Biden is put on a ventilator , will the electors select Kamala as the commander in Chief ?

  85. “Fortunately, interracial homicide is not all that common in the United States…..

    In 2019, among murders in which perpetrators were charged and the race of victims recorded, in 84 percent of murders both offender and victim were members of the same racial group, as broadly defined by the FBI using only three categories: blacks, whites (including 93 percent of Hispanics), and Others (Asians, American Indians, Pacific Islanders, etc.).

    Of those 16 percent of all murders that were interracial, blacks were the offenders in 62 percent as measured by the FBI….

    The Case of the Missing Murderers.

    The numbers on the FBI site don’t add up. “There’s something happening here, what it is ain’t exactly clear” and that’s intentional.

    Only Table 6 gives information that includes both race of victim and offender. I’m assuming that’s where Steve got his numbers. Problem is, that chart only shows the numbers for single victim/single offender. The numbers are for the murder of 3,299 whites and 2,906 blacks.

    Table 4 shows the numbers for Single Victim/Unknown Offender, Single Victim/Multiple Offender, Multiple Victim/Single Offender, Multiple Victim/Multiple Offender and Multiple Victim/Unknown Offender.

    The Single Victim/Single Offender make up 51% of the total cases. Unknown Offenders make up 27%, leaving 22% of the total Victims as being either part of multiple offenders or multiple victims.

    But Table 3 shows us that of 16,245 total offenders, 6,425 were black and 4,728 were White while there were 4,752 offenders whose race was “unknown”.

    Table 1 tells us that of 13,927 murder victims in 2019, 5,787 were White and 7,484 were black. Compare this to the numbers in Table 6, above, the table from which Steve got his numbers. 7,484 blacks were murdered, but of them, only 2,906 were murdered by a single murderer. 4,578 of them were either murdered by multiple murderers or were themselves victims as part of a multitude. Do the same for white victims. 2,488 fit the same criteria.

    So, 49% of the data isn’t there. Most of it pertaining to multiple murderers or multiple victims. This is Black Lives Splatter territory. They’re the ones doing drive bys.

    How can we draw any reasonable conclusions about interracial murder when half the data isn’t there? And what there is, Table 3, shows that blacks are far and away the leading perpetrators so we can pretty safely put most of the multiple victims in their count.

    The FBI statistics are a blackwash.

    It wasn’t. The illegitimacy rate was a great deal higher than was the case for white families, but rather lower than it is for white families today. About 15% of all black children were born out of wedlock. Thos. Sowell has demonstrated through descriptive statistics that family relations throughout the first six decades of the 20th century grew more orderly and conventional in the black population. Also, where you had a child born out of wedlock and not adopted out, a stepfather would commonly show up within a few years. Wm. Tucker has written about this phenomenon. Jesse Jackson’s home life would be an example. His sire was a businessman of some standing in the black community, already married. His mother married a postal worker a few years later. Both his sire and his stepfather were above the median in the black social strata of the time, his sire way above.

    Crime rates were also higher among blacks, but rather lower than today.

    NB, the breakdown of family stability between about 1958 and 1982 was of similar magnitude on both sides of the color bar. Black families were weaker at the beginning and weaker at the end.

    Very good comment Art.

    Some people are unaware, that while blacks way underperformed whites across all measures of social competence, by 1960 the long mid-20th century, low-immigration, mass society uplift had lifted their boat as well. They weren’t behaving like whites, but most blacks were managing to organize normal civilized family lives–most laboring or working class, maybe 1/4 middle class.

    While the great minoritarian, throw-out-the-majority’s-civilized-Christian-standards turned black communities into dystopias, in things like family structure whites declined in relative terms as badly as blacks and in illegitimacy the decline is proportionally worse.

    You really can’t run a civilized society long term without civilized societal–inc. sexual–norms.
