I decided to test out the DWL theory that race tells us nothing about violent crime in Chicago. According to the 2010 Census, African-Americans and Hispanics are 61.3 percent of ChicagoÃ¢â¬â¢s population. Whites and Asians are 38.4 percent. Homicide 96.8 percent of homicide in Chicago is committed by African-Americans and Hispanics. Of the 2,759 robberies committed in Chicago in 2009, 2,352 of those robberies were committed by African-Americans, which means that African-Americans are responsible for 85.2 percent of robbery in Chicago. Source: 2009 Annual Report, Chicago Police Department It looks to me like 96.8 percent of homicide, 93.3 percent of rape, 96 percent of robbery, and 91.8 percent of aggravated assault Ã¢â¬â 94.5 percent of violent crime in Chicago - is committed by African-Americans and Hispanics. http://www.occidentaldissent.com/2011/06/15/the-color-of-crime-chicago/ Are these facts a legitimate point of concern for white Chicagoans? Would it be "racist" for white Chicagoans to be concerned about these facts as they relate to white people? Would it be "racist" for them to consider it in terms of it's racial context or implications? Why or why not?
