I agree with your first point. Statistics counter your second point, though. FBI criminal statistics and criminal victimization surveys indicate that blacks commit crime, at higher percentages than other racial groups, at all income levels. Similarly, whites commit higher rates of crime than Asians, at all income levels. Poor white neighborhoods won't come close to the crime rates of poor black neighborhoods. Every single black country in the world is in dismal shape. Every single city with a strong black majority and black leadership rank among the top of the nation in criminal statistics (e.g. Detroit, St. Louis, Washington DC, New Orleans). I mean, DC was so bad at one point that 50% of black males were either 1: wanted on felony charges, 2: currently serving time for a felony, or 3: had served time for a felony.

I not meaning to come off anti-black, which I undoubtedly am in this post, but there has to be a cultural consideration on this topic. Folks are afraid to discuss these facts due to the nasty "R" word that whites are so terrified of.

edit: grammatical clarification

Do you trust that the FBI are being completely honest?

Or they get charged with more crime. Depends on how you frame it.

If you don't think we have racist laws, you should look into how we prosecute under crack laws versus cocaine.

Do you have any source for this? Not that I don't trust you, but I'd love to see it.
