Black and White: Who's Killing Whom? - Godfather Politics: Ever since George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin a month ago, it seems that everyone is talking about racial crimes. Every time a non-black commits a violent crime against a black person, certain black activists like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson crawl out from the cracks like cockroaches when the lights go out. They do their best to make everything into a racial hate crime, whether it was or not.
So I thought it was about time we take a look at racial crimes and see just who is committing the crimes against whom.
According to a study conducted by the Scripps Howard News Service, white on black killings rose from 3% thirty years ago to 4% today. Black on white killings rose from 6% thirty years ago to 8% today. In other words, there are twice as many black on white killings as there are white on black killings.
