    Ok, Thom, so let's say it is skewed. What can we reason from that? Well, it would seem that white on black crime is very rare but black on white crime is rampant. Well... what should we do about this?

    THAT'S what the argument is begging.


    Denying this is intellectually dishonest or inept. It's clear as day.

    I was thinking that very thing as I read the OP - how is it being ignored if it's being reported??

    FBI — Annual Hate Crimes Report Released

    Of the 6,222 reported hate crimes, 6,216 were single-bias incidents—46.9 percent were racially motivated, 20.8 percent resulted from sexual orientation bias, 19.8 percent were motivated by religious bias, 11.6 stemmed from ethnicity/national origin bias, and 0.9 percent were prompted by disability bias.
    FBI — FBI Releases 2010 Hate Crime Statistics

    Of the 6,008 known offenders, 58.6 percent were white and 18.4 percent were black. For 12.0 percent, the race was unknown, and the remaining known offenders were of other races.

    Sawyer, where did you get this disgusting little call to violence?

    To be clear, I mean the putting of stories like this with claims of media bias. Who taught you that.

    Anyone think Sawyer can answer the charge? I believe the debate is over.

    I'm a liberal and ummmmm no, that's not how I see it. That's hyperbole spewed out by hate pedaling pundits and eagerly swallowed by some hook line and sinker.

    Looking at crime stats a while back this seems comparatively true though I might not use "rampant" as the descriptive term.

    1) This is where we are not on the "same page". I took this thread to be concerned with media bias which we each and all recognize. I did not take this as a racial inequality thread.

    Well... what should we do about this? ..... I have no idea, I am not in control of the situation.

    What can we do about it ? It's a Blue Whale!

    Thanks for the civil response... Think I'll move on.

    As per the ADL, it's quite common in white supremacist groups to overplay the black on white crime statistics. They ignore crime statistics and conviction rates while speaking of a supposed "epidemic" of insert group here crime on whites.

    That is only true if you ignore actual crime statistics:

    Whites are responsible for 60% of racially based crimes while blacks make up 20% of crime against other groups.
