Black Crime in Tennessee is Disproportionate Not Racism
by Lewis Loflin
Why I reject political correctness.
One of the more notable events in Bristol, Virginia was the Ku Klux Klan staged a peaceful rally. Notable was the fact was most whites didn't care, there were few Ku-Kluckers present, and the violent attitudes of their opponents. The counter-protestors to say the least almost turned violent and the police shut the rally down.
The KKK is a joke and embarrassment to any white person out there. Make no mistake, I renounce this group of idiots in total. That aside, do they have a point that whites are having their rights violated? On that point they are spot on.
White liberals in particular are the biggest racists out there that exploit this issue for their political gain. A lot of problems in minority communities is the result of family breakdown (they are responsible for that) and destructive economic policies often favored by the affluent at the expense of all poor people regardless of race.
My concern here is poor and working class whites in Appalachia where family breakdown and unwed mothers are causing many of the same problems as blacks, except for the violent crime levels. But let me be clear whites owe blacks and other members of the various "victim" classes liberals have concocted absolutely nothing.
These events occurred before most of us were even born and that is countered by the violent crime and social welfare costs they inflict on the general society anyway. While politicians won't address the fact, whites are by far the main victims today of minority violence and institutional discrimination.
If a stupid black girl drops out of school and pops three children by different daddies by age 18, that is her fault. When a gang of 10 people, mostly blacks executed two men at a Kingsport candle shop in 2005, what the heck does that have to do with slavery? Leftists/liberals have a mental disorder in that they can't seem to use reason when dealing with these issues.
Political correctness is simply a tool used by affluent white Leftists to evade real issues they don't want to deal with. Simply because there's some 'racial disparity" it's seldom anything to do with racism, but underlying problems within the minority community itself.
Facts are not racism and I do not play political correctness. Equal treatment for all, period.
Fact: blacks/Hispanics commit by a vast disproportionate numbers violent crime in every state in the union. Take a hard look at the crime statistics for Virginia available online and since 2005 (that's as far as I went back) blacks, in particular black males, commit over half of all the violent crime in Virginia. (Black males are 10 percent of the population.)
Cross-racial violent crime is almost ten-to-one against whites. Sexual assaults on blacks by whites is almost unheard of, vice-versa in the thousands. These thousands of cross-racial attacks should be treated as hate crimes because many are, yet most hate crime charges are leveled at whites. (According to Attorney General Holder hate crime protections don't apply to whites unless they are Jews or homosexuals, then largely if the perpetrator is white.)
Political correctness be damned those are the facts. And any attempt to crack down on this rampant violence and lawlessness in minority communities is decried as 'racism.' Decent people don't want to be around these populations not because they are black or Hispanics, but because too many act like animals. That's not racism but the instinctive human reaction to violence.
I'll be clear it's not fair to tag all blacks, etc. with such a label and we must be careful about doing it, but by stifling the discussion and not openly addressing the problem we do just that. Let's look at some cases in point from Knoxville, Tennessee where a gang of five blacks kidnapped, gang-raped and tortured a young white couple, then murdered them.
82% of drug-zone defendants are black;
lawyer sees 'gross disparity'
This was the headline November 12, 2010 at www.knoxnews.com. This involves the 551 prosecutions launched under the state's Drug-Free School Zone Act, or DFSZA, by Knoxville police. 82 percent of those arrested are black. Some attorney named Susan Shipley says, "It's a gross disparity."
She doesn't deny they are guilty and clearly are as repeat offenders, it's because Knox County is less than 20 percent black it's racism, period. Her beef is,
People caught with as little as a handful of crack cocaine "rocks" in the inner city often merit probation sans a DFSZA charge. But those same offenders charged with a drug-zone violation face 15 to 25 years in prison with no possibility of parole - a penalty harsher than that meted out to killers convicted of second-degree murder...
in a motion filed on behalf of client Valerie McDaniel that, although the intent of the law was to protect school kids from drug dealers, it is instead being used to target inner-city residents, most of whom are black, poor and live in housing projects located - at the direction of "urban planners" - near schools.
So we should have a race quota system where arrests are made only on the basis of race and we can't arrest no more than 20 percent blacks before we arrest 80 percent whites for crime blacks commit in disproportionate numbers that hurt blacks in disproportionate numbers? Is this person even rational?
The fact is blacks do commit these crimes in vast disproportionate numbers (along with the associated violence, etc.) which will lead to disproportionate numbers of arrests. It's reason and facts Susan, not racism. And being poor because over 70 percent of black kids are born to stupid black women that whore around with different men they never marry is no excuse.
Let's look at some other cases I pulled up at www.knoxnews.com:

Are all of these problems within the black community a result of poverty as Susan seems to claim? Let's look at the facts.
Racial breakdown in Tennessee
Whites are 75.6 percent of the population while blacks are 16.7 percent of the population, Hispanics at about 4.7 percent.
Poverty breakdown by race in Tennessee
In 2009 17 percent of Whites, 34 percent of blacks, 34 percent of Hispanics lived in poverty. By the numbers there are 821,500 poor Whites, 345,700 poor blacks, 94,100 poor Hispanics, and 51,100 poor people of 'others' out of 1,312,400 poor people. Poor whites at almost 63 percent outnumber by far all others combined.
Murder rate by race in Tennessee
In the chart above two shocking facts stand out: blacks at 16.7 percent of the Tennessee population and 26.3 percent of poor people in Tennessee commit 56.6 percent of the murders.
The other problem is Tennessee like Virginia has no separate crime category for Hispanics, who per-capita commit 3-4 times as many crimes as whites. They are counted as white. That means the scores of illegal alien Hispanics busted for drug trafficking, identity theft, rape, etc. in East Tennessee only inflates the white crime rates while masking the Hispanic crime rates.
So at least 10-15 percent of the white crime rate shown above attributed to whites should be Hispanic crime at 4.7 percent of the population. If poverty was the cause of crime then about 63 percent of the murders should have been committed by whites, not the about 30-35 percent.
Rape by race in Tennessee
The statistics on black rape in Tennessee closely mirror those in Virginia. Black males commit rape in proportion to their population at about three-five to one. Note that Virginia like Tennessee poor blacks only make up a little over one-forth of those in poverty.
Robbery by race in Tennessee
Armed robbery is by far a black industry.
Aggravated Assault by race in Tennessee
Aggravated assault like rape is mainly black males (about 8.4 percent of the population) is at a ratio of four-five to one at over 40 percent. Again blacks are only 16.7 percent of the population and about one-fourth of the poor in Tennessee.
Police in Algood, Tennessee say reported hate crime was hoax
May 27, 2010: (AP) ALGOOD, Tenn. Police in Algood say the shooting of a 15-year-old black boy, reported as a possible hate crime, was a hoax. Officers in the Putnam County town say two women have been arrested and more arrests are expected. One woman is charged with filing a false report and the other with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Police said the boy, a runaway from Bolivar, Tenn., was shot in the leg May 17, but the shooting did not take place on the street, as he claimed, and there is no evidence that racism was involved. According to the Cookeville Herald-Citizen, details of the shooting have not been disclosed. Juvenile petitions have been obtained against the boy for filing a false police report. The boy has since been returned to his hometown, where he faced other charges.
Facts are not racism and the statistics above prove it's not racism. If one can prove there's some massive conspiracy across the entire states of Virginia and Tennessee that blacks have been framed for the thousand of murders, rapes, robberies, carjackings, etc. because they were black, then that is racism. The problem isn't racism but inherent problems among blacks themselves. It's time to address the problem.
