Anti-racism and black crime in Britain by Jay Knott (06/27/10)       ⇌ (Zionist opposition to freedom of speech)       

An investigation has found that Afro-Carribean men are dispropor tionately represented - by orders of magnitude - in violent street crime in the UK. This statistic in itself does not prove anything more than it says. An old-fashioned London pub pundit might be quick to attribute the disparity to genetic predisposition, though in more earthy language. But the anti-racist establishment would rather deny the statistic altogether. It's not true that black men commit more crime, according to Richard Garside, of the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies - rather

"Given Britain’s long history of racism and imperialism it should not greatly surprise us that black and minority ethnic groups are disproportionately members of social classes that have tended to experience greater victimisation and to be the subject of police attention."

It is true that Britain has a racist history. It is true that it is divided into classes. It is true that the police have a record of racial discrimination. But it is also true that black people are overwhelmingly more likely to be violent criminals than their white counterparts. Whether this matters is debatable. Debate requires honesty. No-one benefits from denial.
