According to the 2010 Census, African-Americans and Hispanics are 61.3 percent of Chicago’s population. Whites and Asians are 38.4 percent.
96.8 percent of homicide in Chicago is committed by African-Americans and Hispanics.
Of the 2,759 robberies committed in Chicago in 2009, 2,352 of those robberies were committed by African-Americans, which means that African-Americans are responsible for 85.2 percent of robbery in Chicago.
It looks to me like 96.8 percent of homicide, 93.3 percent of rape, 96 percent of robbery, and 91.8 percent of aggravated assault – 94.5 percent of violent crime in Chicago – is committed by African-Americans and Hispanics.
If African-Americans and Hispanics were removed from Chicago, 95 percent of violent crime in Chicago would disappear along with them.
How does race have nothing to do with crime? Why does the media pretend there isn’t a connection here?
