Both violent and nonviolent crime has been declining in the United States since a high in 1993. 2015 saw a disturbing rise in murder in major American cities that some observers associated with? depolicing? in response to intense media and public scrutiny of police activity.
Crime rates

There are dramatic race differences in crime rates. Asians have the lowest rates, followed by whites, and then Hispanics. Blacks have notably high crime rates. This pattern holds true for virtually all crime categories and for virtually all age groups.
In 2013, a black was six times more likely than a nonblack to commit murder, and 12 times more likely to murder someone of another race than to be murdered by someone of another race.
Interracial crime

In 2013, of the approximately 660,000 crimes of interracial violence that involved blacks and whites, blacks were the perpetrators 85 percent of the time. This meant a black person was 27 times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa. A Hispanic was eight times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa.
Urban centers

In 2014 in New York City, a black was 31 times more likely than a white to be arrested for murder, and a Hispanic was 12.4 times more likely. For the crime of ?shooting??defined as firing a bullet that hits someone?a black was 98.4 times more likely than a white to be arrested, and a Hispanic was 23.6 times more likely.
If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent.
In an all-white Chicago, murder would decline 90 percent, rape by 81 percent, and robbery by 90 percent.
Police shootings

In 2015, a black person was 2.45 times more likely than a white person to be shot and killed by the police. A Hispanic person was 1.21 times more likely. These figures are well within what would be expected given race differences in crime rates and likelihood to resist arrest.
In 2015, police killings of blacks accounted for approximately 4 percent of homicides of blacks. Police killings of unarmed blacks accounted for approximately 0.6 percent of homicides of blacks. The overwhelming majority of black homicide victims (93 percent from 1980 to 2008) were killed by blacks.

I mean... Are we sure the black people there started it, or did the police automatically assume the black guy, and thus it got pinned on them?

While I don't think theres much of a systemic race issue in the police force as a whole (that would be much more dependent on area and culture of said area, isolation, ect), I also think articles like that are pretty silly.

What methods and systems did they use to vet their facts? Are they just going off who was charged? Because again, that's a simple mater of the cops assuming someone was the perp based on race, which is certainly a thing (though probably not as wide spread as many think).

I dont really think that article is overly reliable without more information...

Even beyond that, once factoring those things, is it a matter of race, or of class/social standing? Many of the poorer urban neighborhoods happen to be black, but it's not like white neighborhoods in similar financial situations are any better crime wise(and yes, that's from experience).

Conversely, what's the population break up look like? Are whites more likely to be attacked by blacks in certain areas? Vice versa?

It's bullshit.

Andrew Jackson had a larger impact on American history than Harriet Tubman. But of course "Conservatives" back this since they are SJWs.

That was a pretty fun read, thanks to the jumping back and forth between childish terms and scientific ones. One second you're reading about 'wieners' and 'hoo-has', and the next they're throwing 'amniotes' and 'coevolutionary arms races' in your face, making me wonder who exactly this article is directed at.

Honest question. Do you consider anti racism to be anti white?

That's a meme account referencing the racist Kaz jokes.

Kazuhira ''If it ain't white it ain't right'' Miller
Kazuhira ''Fulton the black, don't bother coming back'' Miller
Kazuhira ''Only the master race on mother base'' Miller

I'm okay with having Tubman on the bill.

Yeah, George Washington was totally not racist and never had slaves or attacked Injuns ever.

Yeah, what's the big deal? Sure, Jackson was an important president, but mainly for being a giant dick to everyone. A lot of countries have important scientists, artists, humanitarians, etc. on their money.

Also, for the record, the new $20 bill design will still have Andrew Jackson on the back.

Tell me how America would be noticeably different if Harriet Tubman was never born.

Still not seeing how it's a big deal. Just a couple of opinion pieces with people claiming what a person who's been dead for generations would think about being on paper money that didn't even exist back then. You could make very similar claims about Andrew Jackson, by the way. He hated centralized banking, and would probably hate being on the $20 bill too.
