After the events of the past few days, you have to think of Donald Trump as Elvis. Not because he’s an entertainer, or because he’s got the outrageous hair, but because he’s a cultural appropriator. I’ll explain. Elvis became popular because he was a white guy singing black music to white people. Donald Trump is kicking ass because he’s a Republican using Democrat tactics. More specifically, he’s using the tactics developed by the Clinton/Soros machine two decades ago.
As most of you know, the Clintons made an art out of refusing to be sorry for anything they had ever done. So much so that two of their best non-apologies — “Mistakes were made” and “What difference does it make?” — have entered the public lexicon. And it works. Look at this business with Hillary and her private email server. This woman knowingly circumvented national security policy by sending, receiving, and storing classified information on a computer in a bathroom closet… and because she won’t apologize for it, she’s untouchable on the subject.
Trump has been called a “racist” by the corpo-Democratic media since Day One. The label has been applied so often and so vigorously that it’s losing its effect. More importantly, Trump refuses to apologize for his “racism”. Instead, he’s doubling down on his “problematic” behavior. I don’t think that’s by accident. He is depending on the media going absolutely insane on the topic and simply wearing out the patience of the American voter. By the time the general election rolls around, allegations that Trump is a racist will seem as old and meaningless as Hillary’s decision to do State Department business on her own computer.
It’s a brilliant strategy. Chuck Todd called Trump “the post-truth candidate”. The fact of the matter, however, is that the Clintons perfected being post-truth a long time ago. Trump is simply reading from their playbook. To a national media that is used to watching Republicans bow and scrape in front of them, it’s an act of unprecedented cheek.
The latest Trump-ism is his re-Tweeted graphic claiming that Black murder victims are killed by Black offenders 97% of the time. That’s not true, but in their efforts to refute it, the media is being forced to discuss the actual numbers. As we’ll see in a moment, some of those actual numbers are nothing short of terrifying.
We’ll be working with the 2014 FBI data today. Let’s start by showing you how the media will spin it:
- 82% of white people are killed by other white people, which is totally fine because you’re most likely to be killed by someone in your own ethnic group.
That’s been the single talking point that the media is working. When you actually look at the FBI statistics, however, you will see that they do two separate separations: one by race and one by ethnicity. While I am certain that there are some Black people out there who are also identified by the FBI as Hispanic — Giancarlo Esposito, anybody? — for the purpose of statistical reporting it looks like Hispanics are counted as “white” the vast majority of the time. So let’s boil some additional numbers here. I want you to read all these numbers as “AT LEAST” numbers. What I mean by that is that I will ALWAYS consider the “unknown” or “unreported” figures in the FBI report to weigh AGAINST a given number. Example:
- 89% of Black victims are killed by other Blacks.
That’s an AT LEAST number because there are a significant number of “unknown” race entries in the table. But I don’t count any of those. Alright. Let’s continue.
- 14% of white murders are committed by Black offenders.
- 7.6% of Black murders are committed by white offenders.
- 4.3% of Black murders are committed by non-Hispanic white offenders.
Now, let’s do some figuring by percentage of race in America. Right now, this country is 62.2% non-Hispanic white, and 12.4% Black. Whites outnumber Blacks in this country five to one. This is where it becomes at least vaguely interesting. Say you are a Black man walking down the street and you see two people walking towards you. One is a non-Hispanic white and the other is Black. If you know nothing else about these people but their race, what is the likelihood that you will be murdered by one or the other of them?
Boil the numbers for a minute and here’s the answer: You, the African-American in the street, are approximately ninety-four times as likely to be murdered by the Black man. Makes Jesse Jackson’s famous statement a lot clearer, doesn’t it?
Alright. Now let’s flip the script (I learned that phrase by listening to rap, of course) and imagine a non-Hispanic white person walking down the street. He sees the same two people walking towards him. Who’s a bigger threat? When you subtract Hispanic murderers from the mix, it looks like the numbers are almost a dead heat. The ratio of non-Hispanic white killers of white people to Black killers of white people — 60%/14% — is very close to that 62.2%/12.2% population ratio. So our prospective White murder-ee would do well to treat both people with about equal suspicion.
The takeaway from this? By the numbers, when it comes to murder, white people shouldn’t treat Black people with any more fear or concern than they treat white people. Black people, on the other hand, should be absolutely flat terrified of other Black people and should hang out with whites every chance they get, to increase their safety.
Keep in mind we aren’t talking about rape, robbery or assault here; those are all crimes where the black-offender-to-white-victim ratio is way out of whack. We’re strictly discussing murder. And when it comes to murder, the statistics show that white people shouldn’t judge by race, but Black people probably should. Whites are pretty harmless to Blacks. When you adjust by population, the non-Hispanic-white-on-Black murder rate is virtually nonexistent.
Which is why the media goes so freaking crazy when it happens. It’s a man-bites-dog story. But if you allow yourself to be educated and informed by the media, without any filter or skepticism, then it’s easy to believe there is a “war on Black people” out there. So don’t let that happen, no matter what color you are. Learn the actual facts, apply your own thinking, decide for yourself.
But before I go, here are a few more factoids:
- Women kill men more often than they kill other women, by about 30%.
- Whites (including Hispanic) kill men and women at a 1.7 to 1 ratio. Blacks kill men and women at a 3.3/1 ratio. Maybe this intersectionality thing really exists.
- Of the 720 Hispanic murders reported, 519 were linked to Hispanic offenders. Non-Hispanic whites were responsible for 59 deaths, with Blacks responsible for 119. So if you identify as Hispanic, again, you might want to consider hanging out with white people. Or even Black people, who are less threat when adjusted by population.
- Men are 2.5 times are likely to be murdered as women. Where’s the sexist uproar? On the other hand, they are about eight times are likely to be murderers.
- The “unknown race” number in the report — 63 — ties into the “unknown sex” number — also 63. The grisly reasons for that are left up to the reader to speculate.
