New DOJ Statistics on Race and Violent Crime

Numbers finally include Hispanics as an offender category.

Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute has just published a table of statistics on race and violent crime that she received from the Department of Justice. For the first time in figures of this kind, DOJ has treated Hispanics as a separate category rather than lumping them in with whites. These data cover all violent crimes except murder, but the number of murders is tiny compared to other violent crimes.

NCFS Table

This table can be used for a number of interesting calculations. First, we find that during the 2012/2013 period, blacks committed an average of 560,600 violent crimes against whites, whereas whites committed only 99,403 such crimes against blacks. This means blacks were the attackers in 84.9 percent of the violent crimes involving blacks and whites. This figure is consistent with reports from 2008, the last year DOJ released similar statistics. Perhaps not coincidentally, that was the year Mr. Obama was elected president.

Interestingly, we find that violent interracial crime involving blacks and Hispanics occurs in almost exactly the same proportions as black/white crime: Blacks are the attackers 82.5 percent of the time, while Hispanics are attackers only 17.5 percent of the time.

Some observers argue that what causes the overwhelming preponderance of black-on-white over white-on-black violence is “chance of encounter,” due to the fact that there are five times as many whites as blacks in the American population. However, there are only about 30 percent more Hispanics than blacks, yet black-on-Hispanic violence is almost as lopsided as black-on-white violence. This suggests blacks may be deliberately targeting both whites and Hispanics.

Using figures for the 2013 racial mix of the population–62.2 percent white, 17.1 percent Hispanic, 13.2 percent black–we can calculate the average likelihood of a person of each race attacking the other. A black is 27 times more likely to attack a white and 8 times more likely to attack a Hispanic than the other way around. A Hispanic is eight times more likely to attack a white than vice versa.

We can also calculate how often criminals of each group choose victims of other races. As indicated below, when whites commit violence they choose fellow whites as victims 82.4 percent of the time, and almost never attack blacks. Blacks attack whites almost as often as they attack blacks, and Hispanics attack whites more often than they attack any other group, including their own.




There is much media agonizing over black-on-black violence, but these figures show that only 40.1 percent of the victims of black violence are black, while people of other races account for nearly 60 percent of the victims of black violence.

The change in DOJ reporting to consider Hispanics a separate category is long overdue. American Renaissance first pointed out 16 years ago the incoherence of failing to account for Hispanics as offenders. DOJ has long counted Hispanics as a victim category in its hate crime reports. We look forward to their inclusion as a perpetrator category.

    So again history repeats itself and negroes do not move forward in life… Do we have exceptions to the rules like Ben Carson and such.. of course… but evolution and lake of bond between parents and children will always hamper negroes through out the world… not just the USA.


      It´s more than just a lack of K-selected parenting. It´s low average IQ, low impulse control, high testosterone levels, no future orientation. Read up on HBD, you can start with this article:

        There does seem to be something in the water. We know they are poison all the major cities with false lead levels in municipal water. GMO’s in EBT food, Poison in the air ‘Chemtrails’ real. The sugar, all of it. The there is the programming to dumb people down with Rap and Money. Like Read a Book,

          Our (((Elites))) want Multiculturalism, they are obsessed with it. But with good information we can stop them. And rescue peace and freedom on earth.

            I wonder if rescuing America is possible at all. The Country may not survive the coming 10 years.

    So white people should not walk-in-the-hood?

    Okay. Knew that already, but now I have pie charts.

  • eyeaye

    Very interesting.

    Now tell me again, how many blacks vs whites were charged with hate crimes?

  • Michael Norton

    All good stuff. Now do an article on actual Hate crime in the USA.

    In 12 million crimes a year in the USA, Hate motivated crime is virtually zero and nothing to be concerned about. Hate crime in the USA is very rare.

    Of the 5,462 single-bias incidents reported in 2014, 47 percent were racially motivated. Other motivators included sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, gender identity, disability, and gender.”

      A crime is a crime, why is race a factor?

      • Nemon

        Because it’s vastly out of proportion and obviously motivated by racial hatred against Europeans.

  • paganpink

    This is the kind of hard data that the media always hides and, on the few occasions when they do cover it, they obfuscate and lie about the plain truth. Blacks are far more violent then other races- and when liberals claim that it is due to society they are LYING.

    • SiiRobertson

      It’s due to their genetics, which includes their low IQ, preponderance to violence, being oversexed, lazy and believe they’re entitled.

      AVOID THE GROID! They’re dangerous and are our number one terrorist threat.

      • ram0n1

        LBJ boasted that his great society changes would have blacks voting Democrat for a100 years. The deliberate destruction of black family life, by Democrats, and the subsequent growth of single parent (female head of household) accounts for more than racist allusions to genetics.

        Those Great Society changes were designed to make black families captive to Democrats.

        • SiiRobertson

          Why did it only affect blacks to this degree? The dems knew they were an inferior race.

        • Spirited!

          And they bought it hook line and sinker! Seems LBJ understood the mentality!!

  • Gary H

    Explains why there are more blacks in the penal system than their were slaves prior to the Civil War.
