Above is a screenshot from the Wikipedia page for "Race and Crime".
Notice that the racial categories for victims and assailants are:
- Native America
- Asian/Pacific Islander
I hedge my statements upon the assumptions that the US Department of Justice has not altered the granularity of their data collection since 2007, the year represented in this grid.
This is no longer acceptable.
We have heard that the fastest growing category of hate crimes is between "Brown and Black". With the US Department of Justice counting Hispanics as White this type of analysis is not possible.
Instead the data as presented above gives unjustified ammunition to the racism chasers who will utilize this data to make the case that "Caucasian on Black" hate crimes represent 54.1% of all that are committed. This is simply not the case.
