I don't personally think it should matter what color someone's skin is. White, black, green or purple, evil is evil.

Socio-economic factors are what is relevant to the likely hood of committing a crime.
Skin colour is pretty much irrelevant it seems.

Or at least i've never heard a convincing argument or study to suggest that white or black people are inherently more violent anti-social etc.

Erm... Harold Shipman's actually dead. He killed himself. In a sense, he's already been released.

There was a sociologist called Eysenck who argued that black people were part of an 'underclass' who are biologically predisposed to crime. Basically, his only support for this hypothesis was that criminals tend to be related to criminals. He was also one of the few members of the scientific community that defended tobacco companies when it was discovered that cigarettes are seriously harmful.

While the colour of someone's skin does not have any direct causal link to their criminality, skin colour does tend to correlate with economic status quite strongly.

I think it comes down to status too, I'm not trying to stereotype here but 'most' black people or areas are run down and borderline poverty and 'most' white people are relatively well off, I think a better comparison would be to find out what percentage of whites and blacks turn to crime in low income or poverished areas, I bet it's pretty similar


I agree

While I won't appeal to any statistical source, I agree that black people and other minority ethnics are represented proportionally more in crime statistics than the majority white population.

Who are you agreeing with ?

Living in Maryland, I have to agree with Wingsy. I grew up in an area with mixed races and now live in an area with both influential and those in public housing.

However, being Native American I have been on the other side and discriminated against while growing up. I think the problem lies within the areas lived in. When I was growing up the people doing crimes were both black and white, there was really no distinction. I grew up with both races and had friends of both races that went to jail.

Where I live now is a small town, where crime is not as bad, but the ratio of races is the same. I live right across the fence from Section 8 housing and have not had a problem since I moved in, but it is also known that I carry a stun-gun for protection. And to answer the question you have now, not just against blacks, but protection against anyone of any color who might decide to do something.

So, basically, I am saying that the crime ratio depends on where you live, not what color you happen to be. In a predominately white neighborhood, it would be whites committing the crimes, in a predominately black neighborhood it would be blacks committing the crimes.

True. But the facts remain. There are more young black men in jail than there are in college. 91% of black people murdered in America were killed by other black people. And inner city crime is more than double of that which occurs in richer neighborhoods. Those are the facts. And anyone who's lived both in an inner city and in a more wealthy neighborhood won't doubt that they're true.

I read somewhere that there are more black males in college than prison...but there are more black males in prison than any other race.

I live in tropical Australia, and here the Indigenous make up over 80% of the prison population. They cry foul, blame white Australia, claim prejudice, all the usual excuses, but to my mind, they committed the crime, by choice, no-one held a gun to their head, so STOP the whinging, take responsibility for yourselves!
I get sick of hearing all the complaints, we all have a choice.
There are more than enough successful, NON-CRIMINAL coloured people, they didn't sink into crime, so why do we accept excuses for those who do?
Stuff this "victim industry" rubbish where the sun don't shine!

It's quite simple, the darker ones skin the more likely they are to commit a crime.

Absolutely nothing to do with the higher proportion of black people living in poverty or situations where crime does happen to be higher. Nope, it is simply the colour of their skin which is making them commit crime.

I watch Lockup on MSNBC at times. The prisoners they mostly showcase are black. I am only saying what I see. They have also said that there are more black men on death row than any other race.

They gave also said, black on black crimes are higher than other crimes such as white on white crimes etc.

Crime is very rarely, if ever, a rational and educated choice. It's done out of desperation, boredom, or anger. Of course there are plenty of "coloured" people who aren't criminals; this essentially proves that it isn't race that crime correlates with - it's economic status. Since ethnic minorities are generally poorer than the majority ethnic, they are likely to commit more crime.

Nothing to do with skin color. It depends on the education and economic conditions. The parts of the world inhabited by the colored people are less developed. That is the reason and because of that it appears so. But skin color has no part to play.
