    Not if it's true. Blacks make up a larger percentage of males in prison that whites. 38% compared to 35%. Yet the blacks only makes up less than 20% of the U.S. population.

    When a statement is based on fact, how in the hell can it be racist? Blacks ARE more violent. Look at our prison populations. They are 14 pc of our population, but make up 60pc of our prisoners.

    That's an oversimplification. Violence and crime are higher in poor neighborhoods regardless of skin color. Now, if you consider that the average African American is poorer than the average White American, it's easy to conclude that blacks are on average more violent than whites. People usually don't look for an explanation when they see the numbers, or don't bother to consider that poverty and violence also exist in predominantly white or Asian countries.

    Not racist- just facts. Blacks do commit the most crimes. It's a matter of statistics.
