So, really, no one is going to take captain brainiac to task on his statement that black on white violent crime does not occur more than white on black violent crime?

Not really, cause race doesn't play a huge part in my families lives since I'm raising a household with 2 white children and 2 black children, and a white wife! I have a question for you... Why does race matter so much as far as you're concerned?

It matters to me because it is constantly pushed in my face, and I am sick of the double standard. You can choose to ignore things and hope they go away, but that will not happen. You can say screw Sharpton and Co., but until they are taken to task with hard figures and statistics they will not go away. In fact, by dismissing them you are basically giving them a free pass to continue this nonsense.

Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.

Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks.
Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.

Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.

Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.
So now explain to me how white-on-black crime is a story but the reverse is to be hidden or ignored?

You want a colorless society? Then stop people from making everything about color.

See post above. That settles that, nice try though.

Your last comment cannot be serious? You're perpetuating just as Jackson and Sharpton! I'm ok with you for the most part, you just race bait more than anyone on the fanatics... It's actually pretty sad!

I already pointed out why I do this, to draw attention to the double-standard. Ignoring it will not solve the problem.

In your opinion, are these incidents reported or covered differently based on race?

I already said I rarely see these kinds of things, white or black, and I watch the news, read news regularly. Not to mention, I've already pointed out how I feel about the criminals that did this (they are animals and belong locked under the jail)! Do I think things get covered more because of race, no! Do I think certain incidents get brought to light due to circumstance, yes! I guess it's in the eye of the person viewing it. At the end of the day, all that matters is that the people commuting these crimes go to prison... And we know plenty of blacks are in prison, as you so eloquently like to point out every opportunity you get! So in the end, who really cares about the media attention, except for a guy that feels the "white mane burden".

No dice. The Zimmerman case blew up SOLELY because it was a "white" on black crime. If it was a black on white or a black on black crime, no one would even hear about it. Race is a very big deal, as far as the media goes, and it only goes one way...turn events in a racewar. I'd love to see the people react to the KKK putting a bounty on the heads of these 12 and see if Holder doesn't throw them all in prison (the KKK.) What happened to the Black panthers when they put a price on Zimmerman's head?

The same thing that happened to Ted Nugent when he threatened Hussein Obama. Nothing! And guess what. Ted Nugent was Still Invited to the State of the Union where he had a Clear Shot at Obama.

Hardly the same thing, not to mention, the threat against Obama wasn't because he was black, it was because of his politics.

Do me a favor man... Look on Google and type in White on Black crime and tell me what the media is reporting on... I'll be waiting

You can't be serious! He has continued or expanded most of Bush's and the GoP's policies.

I don't need to look anything up. The Zimmerman case was a national (international actually) sensation INCLUDING having a president comment on some random kid and members of congress and celebs crying about how he was hunted down like a rabid dog (nevermind the fact that Zimmerman wasn't guilty of anything.) Where is the outrage here? Why isn't Obama commenting on this? Where is Obama on the murders in Chicago?

This is an incredibly dishonest dodge, but I didn't expect you to actually fess up to the double-standard that everyone knows exists. 85-15 buddy, 85-15.

Come on dude!

Edit: swish, this is also important to discuss because ignorant folks like ghorn actually scoffed at the mere idea that white on black violent crime is rare. He acted like it was a wholly delusional statement. He's brainwashed by the race baiters and the media to think that white people regularly target blacks for violence. It simply is not true no matter how hard people push the false narrative.
