"Black made up 60.5 percent of all murder arrests in Missouri in 2012 and 58 percent of all robbery arrests, though they are less than 12 percent of the state’s population. Such vast disparities are found in every city and state in the country; there is no reason to think that Ferguson is any different…New York City is typical: blacks are only 23 percent of the population but commit over 75 percent of all shootings in the city, as reported by the victims of and witnesses to those shootings; whites commit under 2 percent of all shootings, according to victims and witnesses, though they are 33 percent of the city’s population. Blacks commit 70 percent of all robberies; whites, 4 percent. The black-white crime disparity in New York would be even greater without New York’s large Hispanic population. Black and Hispanic shootings together account for 98 percent of all illegal gunfire. Ferguson has only a 1 percent Hispanic population, so the contrast between the white and black shares of crime is starker there."

Also, blacks overwhelmingly vote Democrat:

"Trends in party affiliation among black voters have been largely stable over recent years. Overall, 87% of black voters identify with the Democratic Party or lean Democratic, compared with just 7% who identify as Republican or lean Republican."

Your statistics are limited to a particular city and you claim it's "typical" of the rest of the US but you have no proof to confirm this, also, even if it was typical and blacks committed 75% of all shootings across the US as a whole, with the stat that 87% of "black voters identify with the democrat party" that doesn't include the fact that less than 60% of blacks have registered to vote (you could also theorise that blacks involved in gun crime are less likely to register to vote than blacks not involved in crime, but that would be hypothetical). less than 60% of a population having an 87% tendency does not mean just over 100% of the population has that tendency, at all. Your math is shit and if I used your assertions in an argument with a leftist, I'd get ripped to shreds and made to look like an idiot.

The black voter registration rate wildly fluctuates between states, some are under 50%. Pinning this on democrats just obfuscates the point and is misleading as fuck, it pretends this is some idealogical issue when it is demographic.
