As many of you have probably heard, the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act passed Congress and awaits the signature of President Obama. We had to drop everything and act now to stop the epidemic of anti-homosexual hate crimes … of which there were 5 anti-gay murders in 2007, out of 15,707 murders in total. Apparently, the existing laws against homicide weren’t sufficient to deal with the tidal wave of violence directed at this underrepresented class of citizens.
The Hate Crime Statistics Act of 1990 requires the Justice Department to keep easily accessible statistics of crimes which “manifest prejudice based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or ethnicity.” I’ve posted the 2005 and 2006 numbers of black-on-white interracial rape. In 2006, 32,443 white females were raped or sexually assaulted by black males. Unfortunately, I can’t track down the 2007 and 2008 numbers, as the relevant tables which contain the data are unavailable.
Maybe this is an oversight on my part. I don’t think so. It looks like they quit publishing the data after Auster’s meme about the truth of interracial rape spread around the internet.
