Who Commits Murder in America?

Hubert Collins

Most Americans suspect that Blacks commit the majority of crime in this country. They are, in a word, correct. However, the government takes great strides to cover this up. From the federal on down to the city level, our rulers are loathe to release data on crime that includes racial breakdowns. Such data disrupts the preferred narratives about race in this country.

However, there are a handful of cities that do let the public see the numbers, and, no matter the city, it is Blacks who are running riot. Philadelphia is one those few forthright cities, so we will start there. To begin, here are the demographics for the city in 2016, according to the US Census:
44.2% Black
34.9% White
14.4% Hispanic
7.4% Asian
2.6% mixed
0.9% American Indian
0.2% Hawaiian/Pacific Islander

Here is the demographic makeup of arrestees for shootings, both fatal and non-fatal, that same year in Philadelphia:

For shootings, Blacks were just shy of doubling their share of the general population, with 80.3% of arrests. Whites were the opposite — just shy of halving their population share at 18.5% of arrests. Asians arrest rates, at 0.6%, are about one twelfth their share of the population.

Here are the same shooting arrests broken up between the uniquely clumsy categories “Latino” and “non-Latino.”

Hispanics/Latinos are quite close to being exactly proportional. They were 14.4% of the population at large, and 15.2% of arrests for shootings.

The numbers for murder arrests in 2015 reveal a similar pattern.
White: 18 total, or 17.1%
Black: 86 total, or 81.9%
Asian: 1 total, or less than 1%
Hispanic: 10 total, or 9.5%

The same goes for 2014:
White: 29 total, or 20.4%
Black: 103 total, or 72.5%
Asian: 10 total, or 7
Hispanic: 20 total, or 14.1%

The same pattern holds over the last 10 years of data that I looked at.

Conclusion: Blacks commit the overwhelming number of murders, with their arrest numbers being nearly double their share of the population.

Whites commit murder at about half the rate their share of the population would suggest.

Asians commit an infinitesimally small amount of murder relative to their population size.

Hispanics commit murders at rates more-or-less proportional to their population size.

Making things more interesting is that the data most likely to be in error are the numbers for Whites. All Hispanics must be categorized as a race in addition to being in the “Hispanic or not” binary. So every Hispanic in the numbers above is also represented in the one of the races as well. Each one is counted twice, once as Hispanic, and once as one of the racial categories. This is why the total percentages for each year add up to more than 100; and the amount over 100 each year is the percentage of Hispanics arrested that same year. And generally speaking, Hispanics are categorized as White by default.

That is to say: if instead of having a Hispanic and “non-Hispanic” binary on top of the racial categories, there was the appropriate racial category for them — such as mestizo — the number of White arrestees would plummet. Even if each group of Hispanics was (and this is generous) one tenth genetically European (e.g. Argentines), and one tenth genetically sub-Saharan African (e.g. Dominicans), the White share of offenders still plummets.

Take 2007 as an example:
White: 41 total, or 15.4%
Black: 221 total, or 82.8%
Asian: 5 total, or 1.8%
Hispanic: 20 total, or 7.5%

Say of the 20 Hispanic arrestees, two were White, two were Black, and the other 16 were mestizos. This would mean that of the 41 “Whites” arrested for murder that year, only 25 were “White” in the way the word is meant in any other context. That would mean Whites were only 9.3% of murderers that year, not 15.4%.

You can go through each year yourself and do the same calculation.

The take-home message is that Whites in Philadelphia are less than a third of the murders you would assume given their share of the population. Furthermore, Whites are committing only about two thirds of the murders that official numbers would have you think. Note too that these revised numbers are assuming that as much as twenty percent of Hispanics are White and another twenty is Black. If you think those estimates are too high, than the White murder rate is even lower, and the mestizo rate higher.

This trend holds up for every year that numbers are available. Here are the official 2010 numbers again:

White: 33 total, or 16.8%
Black: 163 total, or 82.7%
Asian: 1 total, or 0.5%
Hispanic: 21 total, or 10.7%

Of the 21 Hispanics, let us assume that roughly one fifth is Black: four; one fifth is White: four; and the rest are mestizos: 17. Assuming that two were categorized as “Black,” and the rest as White, that leaves 19 as White in the above numbers, of which only two are. So subtracting 17 from the White total and you get:

White: 16 total, or 8.1%
Black: 163 total, or 82.7%
Asian: 1 total, or 0.5%
Mestizo: 17 total, or 8.6%

These numbers show Whites are less than half the number of murderers the official numbers suggest they are.

To be sure, it will be easy for any reader to nitpick what the most likely racial breakdown is of the Hispanic category. My “for-the-sake-of-argument” estimates of every group of Hispanic arrestees being 60% Mestizo, 20% White, and 20% Black were chosen to be generous to liberals reading this. The breakdown is much more likely to be along the lines of 80% mestizo, 10% White, and 10% Black—or even 90% mestizo, 5% White, and 5% Black. It would largely depend upon where you drew the line for mixed race Latin Americans. For example: should castizos, normally defined as being around 75% White and 25% Amerindian, be considered mestizos or White?

Regardless, even the racial breakdowns I adjusted above very likely still overestimate the White share of arrestees and underestimate the share of mestizos.

In short, Whites and Asians commit murders at a rate vastly under proportion to their share of the population. Hispanics are slightly under their share of the population. Blacks, meanwhile, are incredibly overrepresented. This was the case before America had a Black president and it was true after. It was true before the concept of “White privilege” entered the mainstream and it was true after. It was true before Black Lives Matter came into being, and it is true now.

Black murder and violence is a constant in this American life. Gilbert Cavanaugh has shown that it is true in Minneapolis. Over a year ago, in the monograph The Color of Crime, American Renaissance noted it was true in New York and Chicago. And it is true in St. Louis as well — another city surprisingly willing to give citizens the racial numbers on crime. St. Louis is worth looking at closely because the Hispanic share of its population is very small. Not only does this make their arrest data more accurate, but the crime data does much to further confirm that the White crime rate in cities with large Hispanic populations is being grossly overestimated because of the ridiculous practice of categorizing almost all Hispanics as White.

According to the 2010 census, St. Louis was:
White: 42.2%
Black: 49.2%
Hispanic: 3.5%
Asian: 2.9%

In 2015, arrests for murder were:
Black: 95%
White: 5%

In 2014:
Black: 94%
White: 4.8%
Other: 1.2%

Again, the same pattern can be seen for all the years I examined, going back to 2006. Obama being president was obviously not a panacea for Black criminality.


St. Louis is about five percentage points Whiter and five percentage points Blacker than Philadelphia. Yet, while the share of Black murders is what you’d expect (slightly higher in St. Louis), the White share of murderers in St. Louis is half, or even less, what it is in Philadelphia.

Why? Could it be that Whites in Philadelphia are at least twice as violent as the Whites in St. Louis?

It seems much more likely that most Hispanic murderers in Philadelphia (and elsewhere in America) are being inaccurately labeled as White. Global numbers on murder rates further suggest this. Mexico and Central America both have some of the highest murder rates in the world. And even the American territories in the Caribbean: the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, both have murder rates at least three times higher than the US. Why would the Hispanic propensity for murder plummet just because of a change in geography?

Not only are Black crime rates incredibly high, but even the low crime rates of Whites are extremely inflated by the obviously inaccurate inclusion of Hispanics in their arrest numbers.

I challenge anyone reading this to find an American city with a sizeable Black population that does not have the same trend as the cities above. Blacks are simply prone to murder, and violence generally. This piece focuses on murder for the sake of simplicity and clarity, but the trends don’t suddenly change when you look at aggravated assault or rape — especially not rape.

Both liberals and cuckservatives are likely to note that White “racists” such as myself should shut up about this because the vast majority of the victims of these Black murderers are Black themselves. As such, violent crime should not be too big a concern to identitarians.

While it is true that whenever data on interracial crime is made available, it invariably shows that the lion’s share of crime committed by any race is against members of its own race, this misses a key dynamic of American society: the constant tug-of-war between the forces of integration and segregation.

The government is constantly trying to integrate the races. Meanwhile Whites, whether or not they make it explicit, are forever trying to avoid non-Whites, especially Blacks. The government forces integration through busing, Section 8 housing in White suburbs, affirmative action, quotas, amnesty, and “refugee” resettlement. Whites in turn fight back by sending their children to private schools, moving to the suburbs, fleeing integrating neighborhoods, tolerating astronomically high rents, supporting the right to conceal and carry firearms, and upholding “stand your ground” and other generous self-defense laws. This is the simplest reason why the majority of Whites vote Republican. On all the issues that serve as proxies for dealing with and avoiding racial integration, Republicans help instead of hinder. While the GOP is far from being explicitly identitarian, the sudden arrival of Section 8 housing, or the ability to obtain a voucher so you can send your daughter to Catholic school can make or break an idyllic childhood.

Despite the goliath efforts of our the federal imperium, America is a very racially segregated society. No one contests this fact, not even leftists. Even cities that on paper appear to be a mishmash of races are in actuality collections of extremely monoracial neighborhoods. This is all in the face of mass government opposition, yet it persists. And the facets of American life with the least racial integration are the ones with the least government intervention, such as churches, which are often called the most segregated facet of American life. They could also be called the most government-free fact of American life. This is not a coincidence.

If egalitarians had their way, interracial crime of all sorts would skyrocket. In particular, Black crime against everyone else would skyrocket. Interracial crime, murder and otherwise, is as low as it is because we all do what we can to stay apart.

And who could blame us?

      I think a better solution would be to legalize marijuana for consumption throughout the Black community and make robbery of poultry-like products from KFCs, misdemeanor offenses.
      Time served can be through community service on medical marijuana farms where a plentiful supply of KFC is on hand.
      There are even more innovative solutions to this problem, but I am sure that if I gave them here they would be redacted!

    Incogman covers this subject in depth with photographs and short descriptions. His latest is about a “dreamer” who killed two little white girls.

    Once again one finds the Jewish wordsmiths at at work with the touchy-feely, pretty and innocent sounding term “dreamer”, inverting the reality of what is actually the lowest form of social scum.

    It’s much worse than one would expect, unknown to most whites living in the remaining predominately white areas.

    Wonderful essay.
    But didn’t you forget something?
    What about the Jews?

    Didn’t approximately 85% of the original slave trading ships that came from Africa belong to Jews?

    Was it not Jews who lobbied ceaselessly to give Blacks their “freedom”[to commit crime]?

    Was it not Jews who maneuvered Whites within the USA to commit wars against each other so Jewish Bankers and Jewish Slave Traders could get rich by distributing Blacks throughout the USA?

    Was it not Jews who represented the so called “Italian mafia” during the era of prohibition, dominate gambling houses in such cities as Las Vegas,
    control sex slave trafficking, pedophilia and other pornography,
    lead the black mailing of congress critters into passing criminal legislation and avoid Jewish taxation while overtaxing Whites etc…?

    Was it not Jews who committed massive acts of insider trading or false flag terror events resulting in recessions, depressions, homelessness, malnutrition and fratricidal wars between first European Nations and then later between Islamic and Western Nations…, not to mention the illegal appropriation of our freedoms?

    Was it not Jews who were behind false flag terror ops like 9-11, 7-7, Madrid, USS Liberty, King David Hotel and the assassinations of countless world leaders and
    those who would not follow along with the Jew World Order dictates that lead the to wars with Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, etc… ad-nauseam…?

    Is it not now Jews who are calling the shots in the White House that are getting Trump to call for wars with Iran, North Korea and ISIS in Syria?

    Is it not Jews who are behind feminism, sexual deformation, rap music, drug culture, Lying Mass Media and Banking Theft on a scale heretofore unheard of in the history of the Planet?

      Blacks excel in low IQ crime, Jews excel in high IQ crime. The former is more visible than the latter. Financial swindles, inside trade on the stock exchange etc. remain mostly invisible to the general public. Often such swindles are ingenious constructions that are strictly spoken not even “illegal”. Eventually necessary violent crimes are “outsourced” to goyim who catch the blame if caught. Thus the Jews who constitute an ethnic Mafia seem not criminal at all.

    This topic is one of the most fascinating in terms of psychological dynamics like cognitive dissonance, and acquiescence to peer pressure.

    Give a White liberal driving directions and tell them to avoid a certain area because it is a “bad neighborhood”, and they will certainly know what race of people live there, but of course they absolve the inhabitants themselves of any blame, I’m sure. Some neighborhoods are just bad, let’s avoid them and not discuss the reasons why.

    If you tell a White liberal blacks are prone to violence at a higher rate than Whites, they will be horrified at your ignorance and prejudice. But ask them about “good schools” and they will talk for hours, weaving intricate detours around the topic of race while never mentioning it, but they must know, deep inside, that the first requirement for a “good school” is that blacks make up a very small minority in it. They will feel guilty about this forbidden knowledge, and may overcompensate at their next opportunity to behave in an overt pro-black manner.

    It’s actually quite humorous: EVERYBODY in America knows blacks are violent and disruptive forces, especially “young black men”, but virtually no one will admit to knowing it.

    Whites show a truly remarkable capacity for charitable thinking on race, in stark contrast to the current “all White people are racist” mantra. If most White folks know *one* black who holds down a job and doesn’t commit crimes, they seem to be willing to spread the sense of good will derived from that association over the entire people.

    I was driving once with my most liberal friend along as a passenger. I took a route through a mildly sketchy area (there were far worse), and he nervously asked me “are-are you sure we should go this way?” Keep in mind, he was one of the most pro-black Whites you could meet. I simply asked, as if I didn’t know exactly what the concern was, “what’s wrong with this route?”. He said nothing; could say nothing, because he was too busy censoring himself and hoping he got home alive. At least he had the sense to be wary, a surprising number of young Whites today have been so thoroughly brainwashed, their basic instinct for self-preservation has become atrophied.

    Thanks for the excellent article, Sir. You are so right.

    I want to add a couple of points.

    1. I believe the actual black crime rate is much higher, due to underreporting of violent crimes, and refusal of police to investigate and arrest, and the refusal of DA’s to prosecute, in many cases. This is true esp. in cases of rape and sexual assault of white women by blacks.

    My rough estimate is that 90% of black men are criminals, esp. rapists and murderers.

    Many white women are afraid to report rapes by black men.

    One good solution is to avoid associating with black people. Unfortunately, our liberal media portrays black men as normal people, wearing suits, smiling, holding a drink at a party, etc. though the reality is that most are just criminals.

    2. Why do we (living in the richest and most powerful nation on earth) continue to have such a serious problem of black crime? It is because of the Judaists. The Judaists brought blacks on slave ships. For this, see the book: “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews.

    The Judaists promote the alien invasion of more, fresh blacks from Africa and 3rd world.

    The Judaists were behind the “civil rights” movement and marched with MLK. The Judaists attack patriots who point out the serious problem of black crime. Black crime can be stopped in a minute, using more aggressive tactics, such as racial profiling, but the Judaists will sue states and the police, if they did that.

    Black crime is a Jewish genocide of whites, by proxy.

      The White male can talk all he wants, but until he stands up for himself nothing will change. Why should it?

        What Japanese community are you referring to? There are 767,000 Japanese in America compared to 3.8 million Chinese, and their animosity towards each other has not lessened after crossing the Pacific. Here in Canada not a peep is heard from the Japanese whereas the Chinese are not only aggressively taking over many of our communities but lack the courtesy of including English on their incomprehensible signs whether real estate or business, a subtle way of saying Chinese Only. A formal apology by the government was demanded and granted (similar to another privileged racial group) for having imposed a $50 Head Tax on Chinese immigrants in 1885 upped to $500 until the 1923 Chinese immigration Act curtailed most immigration. A stroll through any major Canadian city, particularily Toronto and Vancouver, proves that The Chinese Immigration Act should never have been repealed in 1947.

          That’s the idea. Japanese power is subtle, it’s quiet, it’s smiling. Until you work for them, (I spent nearly two decades with one of their firms) then you see how authoritarian and brutal they are. The Japanese are not your friend.

          A Japanese business man and collogue of mine, back when the British protectorate of Hong Kong lease was to come to an end, told me that for $300,000 USD an expat from Hong Kong could purchase citizenship in Canada.
          In the US the cost of one million USD. I believe this to be true due to his standing in the Japanese social structure and being that he was also a “diplomat” as well. He was not to say the least, a friend of the Chinese.

    While all we can do (legally) is bitch about it, it seems to be steadily getting worse. Meanwhile, there ARE blacks who go to work, support families, and have the same hopes and fears we all have. Try carrying on a dialogue with them, to come to a consensus about what can be done. It might surprise you how “jew-wise” some of them seem to be! (They have had exposure to Louis Farrakhan, somewhere in their lives, and understand whence comes a lot of racial conflicts.)(Although Calypso Louie isn’t the Only one…)

    HERE is a revealing article from the USA’s “newspaper of record” about the transformation (or degradation) of a city that was 99% white up until 1985. Then a former mayor invited blacks who were in drug or alcohol rehab programs to move to the city for the final stages of their therapy. The blacks found the city appealing, stayed and encouraged their friends and relatives to move there.

    Now, more disturbing than the huge increase in crime ( both petty and violent), when walking the streets or shopping malls, one sees more and more mixed race children. The naïve little white girls with no family history of interacting with blacks and encouraged and intrigued by the portrayal of black men and boys on media outlets such as (((MTV))), the (((Disney Channel))), ((Nickelodeon))), Public Television stations, etc. put up little or no resistance to the romantic advances of blacks and neither do their parents, probably for fear of being termed “racists.” And this seduction process starts early. Black boys choose their “white b**ches” by late elementary or middle school and keep white boys away by intimidation or threats.

    What happened to this once beautiful and prosperous little city is now happening throughout the USA and not only with black and white miscegenation. And there is no apparent way of stopping this short of insurrection.

    Speaking for my own polity, a typical major metropolitan white flight situation, while it is true that black on black crime dwarfs every other kind of violence, the rate of black on white murder more than doubles white on white murder. Almost every murder of a white that I hear of is committed by blacks, and several without any clear motive, the sort the media would attribute to “hate.” Some have been bizarre, torture murders, for example, I heard of a case wherein a white guy was tied to a tree, flogged and finished off by the injection of a toxic substance. This never made any sort of mass media. As the author points out, on top of all this whites spend enormous time and resources trying to avoid nams. Assuming economic rationality, there must be something we are running from!

    What we’re seeing is a resurgence of the same militant “gimme dat” street justice of the 1960’s that destroyed America’s manufacturing base and affected all rust belt inner cities, especially Detroit (once a White powerhouse of manufacturing). Guided by their handlers, the jews, the blacks are taking to the streets for another dip in to the endless jackpot of redistribution of white wealth. This is about finally establishing two just systems in which Whites are held to an unachievable standard. One in which Whites are finally destroyed by their own altruism using endless Bolshevik mandates. In separate justice systems blacks are not accountable for their actions and are free to be used as the jews domestic army against Whites. As in a formal war, murder is not an offense and blacks are granted a license to kill (granted to them by the jewish Master Race).
