|Why is this the case? From the Wall Street Journal|
On April 2, the Wall Street Journal reported that justifiable homicides (self-defense) were rising, with states passing “Stand Your Ground” Laws that were designed to protect law-abiding citizens from being the helpless victim of crime.
That article slipped my mind until this piece was published in the USA Today on June 9 (Officials plan to take closer look at stand-your-ground laws, By Yamiche Alcindor, USA TODAY):
Yes, those numbers are different. Why might that be Sherlock? Well, just like in Edgar Allen Poe’s The Purloined Letter, the answer is right in front of you, detective: Because Black people target whites for assault, rape, and other forms of crime (most notably, murder) at rates that dwarf the reverse scenario. In November 2011, the US Department of Justice released the Homicide Trends in the United States, 1980-2008; Annual Rates for 2009 and 2010 report. In it, we learn:
Blacks were disproportionately represented among homicide victims and offenders
In 2008, the homicide victimization rate for blacks (19.6 homicides per 100,000) was 6 times higher than the rate for whites (3.3 homicides per 100,000). The victimization rate for blacks peaked in the early 1990s, reaching a high of 39.4 homicides per 100,000 in 1991 (figure 17).
After 1991, the victimization rate for blacks fell until 1999, when it stabilized near 20 homicides per 100,000. In 2008, the offending rate for blacks (24.7 offenders per 100,000) was 7 times higher than the rate for whites (3.4 offenders per 100,000) (figure 18).
The offending rate for blacks showed a similar pattern to the victimization rate, peaking in the early 1990s at a high of 51.1 offenders per 100,000 in 1991.
The race distribution of homicide victims and offenders differed by type of homicide: From 1980 to 2008—
Black victims were over-represented in homicides involving drugs, with 62.1% of all drug-related homicides involving black victims. By comparison, 36.9% of drug-related homicide victims were white and 1% were victims of other races.
Compared with the overall percentage of murder victims who were black (47.4%), blacks were less likely to be victims of sex-related homicides (30.4%), workplace killings (12.5%), or homicides of elders age 65 or older (28.6%) (table 7).
While two-thirds of drug-related homicides were committed by black offenders (65.6%), black offenders were less likely to be involved in sex-related killings (43.4%), workplace homicides, (25.8%) or homicides of elders age 65 or older (41.9%) compared to their overall involvement as homicide offenders (52.5%).
But does that really matter? When has that pesky concept known as “truth” ever gotten in the way of racial justice and atonement for the past sins of white people upon the hapless, hopeless, and forever aggrieved The Blacks?
|So that’s why white people are justified in homicide…|
Think Progress quotes from that same USA Today article, happily noting that the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is taking up the cause of Black thuggery and attempts to outlaw white resistance to being the victim of inter-racial crime (well, protecting the right of future instances of Black criminality without the unpleasant introduction of white self-defense into the equation):
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights announced it will launch an inquiry into so-called “Stand Your Ground” legislation for racial bias. The laws, which gained notoriety after the shooting of Trayvon Martin, eliminated the duty to retreat from a confrontation that has existed as part of the common law for hundreds of years.
According to the Commission, there are “some indicators of racial bias” in how the laws have been implemented. From the release:
- Data compiled by the Wall Street Journal shows a near-doubling of justifiable homicides from 2005-2011 in states where SYG [Stand Your Ground] has passed. Moreover, their data shows that
- A separate study by the FBI found “34% of cases involving a white shooter killing a black person were deemed as a justifiable homicide. Meanwhile, in similar situations, when the shooter was black and the victim was white, the homicide was ruled justifiable only 3.3% of the time.”
Pesky, superfluous and unwelcome Hate Facts to justify the use of deadly force when Black criminals target whites to deprive them of their life, possessions, or for sexual assaults (white people rarely target Black people for any type of crime) are but a nuisance to those at the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
Stand-your-ground laws are the last hope in a nation plagued by Anarcho-Tyranny, and now, through the devious machinations of Black-Run America (BRA), outright tyranny is about to become the law of the land.
It’s becoming increasingly clear that you can’t fight back when being assaulted by a Black person (that’s the ultimate aim of getting rid of Stand-your-ground/Castle Doctrine laws); that would be a violation of the would-be Black mugger/rapper/murderer hard-earned “Civil Rights,” which gives them the opportunity to do whatever the hell they damn please.
