Are Blacks a Criminal Race?

No. Blacks are not a criminal race. Criminality is differently distributed across different populations, just as household income and IQ are differently distributed across different populations. Black people simply exhibit higher rates of criminality -- statistically -- than other population groups. This statistical fact should not be used to condemn blacks as a race.
Crime Rates by Race via Equally Happy

There is evidence that shows that blacks exhibit higher rates of most categories of violent and property crime -- including hate crimes.

A black judge in Atlanta -- in the Fulton County Superior Court -- says that blacks commit almost all crime in Atlanta, and he is fed up with it.

London Metropolitan Police say that blacks are responsible for most violent crime in the city -- despite blacks making up a very small proportion of the population.

The underlying causes for higher rates of crime by blacks certainly rest in both nurture and nature -- heredity and environment.

On the heredity side, black populations exhibit lower mean IQ and executive function (EF) -- including impulse control. Both IQ and EF demonstrate between 50% and 80% heritability, and sometimes higher.

On the environmental side, black children are more likely to be raised in an impoverished environment, without the necessary early intellectual stimulation and parental encouragement which is so vital to mental, emotional, and physical development of a child.
IQ by Ethnic Category

Racial gaps in IQ and executive function have been demonstrated for scores of years, and have proved quite stable over the years (PDF). This suggests a statistical stratification of aptitude by race. Whether such gaps can be narrowed and such stratification be blurred depends largely upon whether society faces these problems honestly -- or whether western societies continue to deny and mis-classify these problems in a suicidal fit of political correctness.

For those who are concerned about maximising the peaceful and productive potential of everyone, the modern descent into anti-scientific denialistic political correctness cannot help but be disturbing -- guaranteeing more decades of unnecessary crime and suffering.

This is a semantic question, but how many more times criminal than whites would blacks have to be before you would call them a "criminal race"?

I would think that the validity of the term "criminal race" would be a relative thing. And I would argue that by white standards, and certainly be Asian standards, another race that is nine times as likely to commit murder could be reasonably termed a "criminal race" as long as there was an understanding that that did not mean every single individual of that race was a criminal.

Or is that your definition of a criminal race - that every single individual of that race must be a criminal?

Again, this is all semantics. Whether you apply the words "criminal race" to blacks or not is of little importance. It's enough to know that it is dangerous and significantly reduces the quality of life for whites to live around blacks in any numbers.

BTW, this was an interesting and useful post, as was your last post on teaching children martial arts. Very practical information.

The situation is actually worse than the stats above state:

Much of the black middle class is employed in government or quasi-government (Post Office) functions. The pay of those jobs has skyrocketed over the past few decades. What will happen to the black middle class as cities, counties, and states fall into receivership? What happens when the Post Office can no longer meet payroll?

As for crime stats: The FBI's states lump the Hispanics in with Whites, which greatly increases the white crime rate. If you look at say New York City, which in fact breaks out the Hispanic crime rate, you will see some eye opening stats. I actually took a few hours once to go through them. If New York City were full of European whites and the more productive Asian groups (Korean, Thai, Japanese), there would be almost no violent crime in NYC. The white murders I did find were often along the lines of a gay man murdering his lover in a jealous rage. The violence was mostly a domestic affair and not say, getting murdered by a mob of 'youths'.

Is your IQ by Ethnic Category graph applicable to the USA only? I'm an ex-South African and our blacks have an average IQ of 67 (regarded as retard). This goes a long way to explain why South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa has such a huge crime issue (hence the need for Apartheid which was to separate the races and tribes). The African-America IQ is higher than African blacks due to miscegenation. If you look at the graph of Homicide Race by Nation you will note most of the crime is on the African continent where IQs are much lower than the Americans.

Blacks in Europe and North America appear to have higher average IQs than blacks in Africa -- probably for several reasons, including cross-breeding, as you mentioned. But less exposure to tropical disease, better nutrition, and a more intellectually stimulating early childhood may each contribute more to the statistical difference.

In North America, cross-breeding occurred between whites and blacks, as well as between native American Indians and blacks. When studies are done to judge the effect of cross-breeding on American blacks, the effect of the native American Indian genes on the mix is often neglected, giving a falsely low estimate of the genetic effect.
