Glad to see that someone attempting to earn PHD actually didn't even read it thoroughly. The more important aspect than the homicides were that the victims with a mean age of 77 were raped prior to being murdered. You should get your facts straight before you play the race card. It would be considered prejudicial and not racism which implies one race is superior to others. Hard to misinterpret statistics when 32% of a given population commits A largely disproportionate amount of its crime. If i recall your specialty lies not in sociology rather in psychology but you can correct me if I am in error. The key lies not in judging individuals when interpreting this data but rather in groups of individuals.
I almost wrote back earlier regarding your unsubstantiated comment regarding that the majority of blacks like white peopleor at theleast don't hate them. It doesn't matter either way it could never be proven one way or another. It is not like Gallup is going to do a poll on it and as if you could get honest answers anyways. It has been my experience that the opposite is true. I don't necessarily like Mitt Romney but he is polling at under 2% in the polls with Black Americans. Makes me wonder if they like the message Obama presents or his skin color?
The most dangerous type of "community" one can be in would be the "deadwood setting". This has all the necessary ingrediants for violence. Lots of armed men in their youth (think 20's and 30's), a sparse number families (men with wives and children are much less likely to commit violent crime -then and now),alcohol, and probably to a lesser extent gambling. I have never seen a model with gambling in there but it might have a small positive correlation. The urban areas of Detroit, Philly, gary In, Baltimore, Chicago, atlanta and many more don't necessarily meet these criteria. Furthermore, white and asian on black crime is near non existant especially when compared to the opposite.
You go onback to your ivory tower and believe in the falsities they teach you in academia and i'll continue living onthe front lines here in the Mogadishu of the West.
BTW, During the latest hurricane in New Orleans 1000 national guardsman were deployed. Do you think they were there to place sandbags or ensure there wouldn't be a repeat of the last disaster that occured in the aftermath of hurricane Catrina? http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/ ... PH20120828
