Truth Behind the Myth | Black on Black Crime

Black on Black Crime Myth or Reality?

 

Only about 1 percent of African-Americans — and no more than 2 percent of Black males — will commit a violent crime in a given year, according to a 2013 report, Race, Crime and Statistical Malpracticeby timwise.org.

The actual rates of Black-on-white crime are lower than random chance would predict; No more than 0.7 percent (seven-tenths of one percent) of African-Americans will commit a violent crime against a white person, according to   2013 FBI expanded homicide data.
