In Kentucky, African-Americans are 7.8 percent of the population and 13.3 percent of poor people, but are responsible for 27 percent of homicide, 13 percent of rape, 44 percent of robbery, 28 percent of aggravated assault, and 19.3 percent of burglary.
I know these statistics are getting a bit repetitive, but I am posting them primarily for the search engines can direct more people to this site.
I’ve now done Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Iowa, California, Iowa, Chicago and Atlanta.
