'Hate crime' victims: Young, poor and white

  1. Where is the outcry from the left?

    Who will protect the white people?

    WASHINGTON – The most likely victim of a hate crime in the U.S. is a poor, young, white, single urban dweller, according to an analysis of Justice Department statistics collected from between July 2000 and December 2003.

    A November report by the Bureau of Justice Statistics detailing a study of 210,000 "hate crimes" a year during that period has gone virtually unreported by the U.S. press.

    But it does contain some surprising numbers. While race is, by far, the No. 1 factor cited as the reason for hate crimes, blacks are slightly less likely to be victims and far more likely to be perpetrators, the statistics show.

    As defined by the report, a collection of data compiled by the National Crime Victimization Survey and the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program, an ordinary crime becomes a hate crime when offenders choose a victim because of some characteristic – race, religion, ethnicity, religion or association – and provide evidence that hate prompted them to commit the crime.

    The NCVS is a database of 77,600 nationally representative people interviewed every other year about their experience with crime, while the UCR data is based on law enforcement reports to the FBI.

    About 56 percent of hate crimes were motivated, at least in part, by racial hatred, according to the study, and most were accompanied by violence.

    While nine in 10,000 whites and nine in 10,000 Hispanics are victimized by hate crimes, only seven in 10,000 blacks are targets, according to the report.

    "Generally, per capita rates of hate crime victimization do not appear to vary based upon victim's gender, race, ethnicity or educational attainment," says the report on all hate crimes reported by victims and police. "However, young people; those never married, separated or divorced; those with low incomes; and those living in urban areas did report experiencing hate crimes at higher rates."

    In fact, those between the ages of 17 and 20 were far more likely to be victims than in any other age group – with 16 incidents per 10,000 people. Those never married, with 16 incidents per 10,000, or separated or divorced, with 26 incidents per 10,000, were also much more likely to be victims of hate crimes. Those with incomes less than $25,000 faced worse odds of victimization, 13 per 10,000, as well as those in urban areas, also 13 per 10,000.

    The report says 38 percent of all those reporting hate crimes said the attacker was black, and in 90 percent of those cases, the victim believed the offender's motive was racial. In incidents involving white attackers, only 30 percent attribute the hate crime to race, while 20 percent attributed it to ethnicity.

    The report says 40 percent of white hate crime victims were attacked by blacks, adding, "The small number of black hate crime victims precludes analysis of the race of persons who victimized them."

    The report by the Justice Department is the one most often cited by hate-crime experts as depicting the true national story. It shows the number of incidents is more than 15 times higher than FBI statistics alone reflect.

    While the annual FBI report, compiled since 1992, is based on voluntary reports from law enforcement agencies around the country, the new report, "Hate Crimes Reported by Victims and Police," found an average annual total of more than 200,000.

    "It's an astounding report," said Jack Levin, a leading hate crime expert at Northeastern University. "It's not necessarily completely accurate, but I would trust these data before I trusted the voluntary law enforcement reports to the FBI."

    According to the new report, hate crimes involve violence far more often than other crimes. The data show 84 percent of hate crimes were violent, meaning they involved a sexual attack, robbery, assault or murder. By contrast, just 23 percent of non-hate crimes involved violence. Other studies have suggested that hate-motivated violence is more extreme than other violence.

    While the press took no notice of the report, it has been praised by pressure groups promoting hate-crimes legislation and enforcement such as the Southern Christian Leadership Conference for its comprehensiveness and breadth – by far the largest study ever done on hate crimes.
  2. If you are a white middle class male you get shit on from all directions. You make too much for governemnt help but not enough to make it. You have to pay a sizable portion of your income so that those who choose not to work and better themselves can get by. And by the way, since you are white you will be discriminated against when applying for schools, financial aid in college and obtaining and maintaing a job (government anyways). To top it off, you are getting blamed for the problems of the blacks as a whole and are ostracized in the media and by black "leadership" as the scapegoat for the failures of the black communitity.

    What really gets me is that even with the help from government sponsored discrimination the black community cannot get their act together and they bitch and moan about how they are not being taken care of and whine about not getting enough handouts from the white person or government. Even more telling is that blacks who do have their act together and make something for themselves are critized and put down as being white or get labeled as an Uncle Tom instead of being made into role models.

    Heaven forbid if a prominent black person (Bill Cosby for example) speaks out about the short falls in the black community and calls for them to look only in the mirror for the cause and solution to their problems. Hell, if that happenned then the white person could no longer be the scapegoat and the black "leadership" (Jesse Jackson and such) would then be out of business.
  3. A direct result of the left infantalizing them and making them dependant on them throught social programs rather than teaching them to help themselves.

    The Democatic party is nothing but modern day slavery.


  4. 1) Why wait for the left to help and who cares about the left, since it is the left in the first place, that is advocating and promoting racism against the White people

    2) White people need to wake up and stand up for themselves. Never ever in the entire history did White people ever depend on anyone's help and protection, let alone nazi liberals.


    "According to New York Daily News, 30 (mostly female) African-American teenagers from Marine Park High School chased five Caucasian girls off of a basketball court and through a park. The African-American girls reportedly punched, pulled hair and kicked the girls while screaming such phrases as "honky bitches" and "white crackers"."
  5. Exactly, you get some kids from Howard Beach chasing a couple of negroes trying to steal cars and issue them a beating and it makes national news.

    White folk who've never lived with blacks are the bleeding hearts. Those of us who've grown up in "changing" neighborhoods can attest that many blacks are vicious, racist garbage. certainly not all. But it's a numbers game. If let's say 15% of all white people are complete pricks I'd say about 40% of blacks fall into that category.
  7. Do you fall into that category? How about Sput, estrader (although he is not really white, he just thinks he is)? Just wondering.

    Bet you're just some suburban white boy who lives as far away from Newark as possible.
  9. Aren't you lefties supposed to embrace and be tolerant of others point of view?

    Do do, you aren't being very liberal right now.
  10. The lefties have been reading too many nazi textbooks lately, and learned a few things, otherwise how would they know who to call "nazi" or who not to call.
