Why Do Blacks Commit So Much Violence and Mayhem?

... violent crime is lowest in East Asian countries, intermediate in European countries, and highest in African and in Black Caribbean countries. The median number of violent crimes per 100,000 population were: 7 East Asian countries--34; 45 European countries--42; and 22 African and Black Caribbean countries--149, respectively. The median Gross Domestic Product per Person was highest in East Asian countries ($12,600), intermediate in European countries ($7,400), and lowest in African and Black Caribbean countries ($1,900). Across the three population groups there was an "ecological correlation" of -.96 between crime and wealth (wealthier countries had less crime). Finer-grained analyses, however, found that while wealth was negatively related to crime across European or East Asian countries, it was positively related to crime for the African and Black Caribbean countries (i.e., the wealthier an African or Black Caribbean country, the greater its rate of violent crime). _Cross National Variation in Violent Crime Rates
Around the world, wherever people of African descent are found in appreciable numbers, crime rates tend to be high. Various arguments have been used to explain the high rates of black crime within and around African populations, but the explanation is likely to involve many different factors.

Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.

Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.

The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic. _Color of Crime
18 and 19 Year Old Accused of Carjacking and Beating 50 Year Old Man Into a Coma With a Hammer

The two adolescent males pictured above were arrested for beating the 50 year old male owner of a carjacked SUV with a hammer, leaving him for dead. He is still on life support in hospital. This crime occurred in the same part of Florida as the recent Trayvon Martin shooting, a region that has suffered an epidemic of crime.
US Incarceration Rates by Race
The high rates of black violent crime are undeniable, although many persons will, for political purposes, deny the obvious. For those who live in the real world, it is important to find the underlying reasons for this long-lived and world-wide epidemic of violent crime, and discover humane ways of dealing with it.

Here is one aspect of the US black community which is often overlooked: The epidemic of fatherlessness and lack of non-criminal role models --
• 70% of all black children are born out of wedlock.
• 65% of never-married black women have children, double that for white women.
• 22% of never-married black women with incomes over $75,000 have children, 10 times that of white women.
• 62% of black families with children are headed by a single parent.
• 85% of black children do not live in a home with their fathers.
• Only 15-20% of black children born today will grow up with 2 parents until age 16.
• Over 80% of long-term child poverty occurs in broken or never-married homes.
• 70% of [black] boys in the criminal justice system come from single-parent homes. _LaShawn Barber_quoting from _A Portrait of the Black Family 2007 (PDF)
Other reasons often given for the ongoing pandemic of violent crime overflowing from black communities around the world, include: poor impulse control, low frontal lobe executive function, low IQ, an ongoing environment of hatred generated within black communities and media outlets which create and amplify violent hatred against other races, politically correct excuses made for black violence in the public sphere, and so on . . .

As noted at the top of this posting, poverty is often given as an excuse for economic crimes such as theft, but it can hardly be used to justify murder, rape, and other vicious assault.

Evolutionary psychology may eventually come up with an answer, if the politically correct apologists and enablers can be held back long enough for actual scientists to work on the problem. But how likely is that, particularly when the US President himself dabbles in racial rabble rousing from time to time?

This is not an academic problem, it is not a theoretical problem. While crime exists in all populations of the world, it is noticeably higher than average in and around black communities.
Crime is too complicated to be reduced to mere race. But race cannot be ignored when considering the problem of violent crime, and what can be done to reduce the suffering. First, one must understand the problem. Then one must devise the most humane solutions possible.

It is not clear that the current arrest and incarceration practises within the US are the most humane solutions possible.

More: Steve Sailer compares media coverage of Trayvon Martin and Omar Thornton. If the news media fails to do its job, it only compounds the problem and takes societies further from genuinely humane solutions.

Well, Al, you just can't write these things. Blacks have higher crime rates because laws are written to make normal activities of black cultures criminal. Imagine how high the white crime rates would be if it were illegal to have children if you were married. But, no.... Instead we penalize blacks whose culture dictates that it takes a village to raise a child and all of the males of the village should be getting the women pregnant and get out of the way so the children can be raised with a proper black female approach to life. You're just so anti-feminist as well as anti-black.

Squirrels have lower IQs than blacks, but we don't create laws to make squirrel activity illegal. But if blacks try to live within their cultural norms... that's illegal.

And, on top of that, cities such as New York even discriminate against blacks who want to serve others as firemen. They were given tests that required the ability to read and focused on cognitive abilities rather than their ability to climb a ladder or carry a fire hose. What does reading or understanding problems have to do with getting a job where the lives of other people are at stake. Giving blacks a test related to mental abilities is obviously just plain wrong. This goes against the Americans With Mental Disabilities Act.


It's just a matter of making sure our standards meet the requirements that everyone can meet our standards. Understand?

These differences are increasingly being explored in ‘bio-social criminology’ research. I’d recommend Anthony Walsh’s “Race & Crime: A bio-social analysis”, or the chapter by John Paul Wright ‘Inconvenient Truths: Science, Race & Crime’ in “Biosocial Criminology: New Directions in Theory and Research” by Kevin Beaver and Walsh (you can access a lot of the material on google books).

Bruce, I'm curious about your comment, "Blacks have higher crime rates because laws are written to make normal activities of black cultures criminal." Can you be more specific?

You can't be intellectually honest while looking at this problem worldwide and not deduce it's a problem. If it was related to one culture, I would understand. However it's worldwide regardless of culture, religion, or country. SOMETHING is going on, it isn't all a coincidence

I think one also has to take into consideration the rise in black and hispanic gangs. I'm not saying that there aren't plenty of non-black or non-hispanic gangs, but it seems like there is a greater percentage of gangs that are black or hispanic. And, we have to face the fact that probably most crimes, whether violent or otherwise, are fueled by one objective: the acquisition of money and lots of it by any means possible.

Well, being a "Black" guy. . .from time to time, I feel a little violent.

Seriously gentlemen, perhaps there is some other issue that is more worthy of your time. If we are indeed more violent and you have reached such a conclusion on the strange, voo-doo science notion of race, then stay away from "our" race. Ban us from whereever you guys hang out. But if you actually think there is something you wish to do about it, I am sure there are community centers, etc. in a neighborhood nearby where you can mentor us poor "Black" folks. Until such time I see you at one, I bid you good day.

@ Mazim Taim fair enough but you can't deny that us blacks always play the victim aka slavery, society being set up against the black man, whites conquer other countries and steal the resources, and other cop-outs. Please explain to me some things; 1, why do property values always go down when a neighborhood turns majority black? 2, why was i chided growing up by other blacks because I acted white and was scared to hang around other blacks? constantly 3, why do (some) blacks attempt to keep each other down mentally and socially?

Blacks do it to ourselves yet no one want to talk about this and the liberal machine perpetuates this.

you have yet to prove your point. I know what you are trying to say but you have no valid proof. one isolated incident and a map with homicide rates cannot prove blacks are more violent than all other races. Did you ever consider that poverty leads to an increase in violence hence why continents such as africa, south america and regions like central america are more red than others... or that violence on TV causes more violent behavior in youth... or that Really you need to think and do research before you write an entire blog post about your theories. I think its sad that people read this half assed thesis and believed it as fact. It sounds to me like you strung together a bunch of random statistics.

This is funny. thanks for the laugh.

When I was a child I went to a fairly nice school in my community. It was by no means new but in good shape and looked nice. Then busing came along. Within that same school year spray paint was all over our building and it was constantly vandalized. The next year it looked like a hell hole and an embarrassment to the community. Why does that happen?
