While I have never been to The Big Apple, I can’t imagine many places that are more undeservedly pretentious than New York City. To hear New Yorkers talk you would think NYC is the center of the universe, the only place anyone could ever want to live. Pardon me for pointing out that being trapped in a giant concrete maze with millions of unpleasant people isn’t what normal people dream about. I mean really, how can you truly live if you don’t get to experience “rowdies” engaged in some good natured shenanigans?
To summarize, the city is just shy of 31% White, a touch over 20% black, over 15% Asian and over 28% mestizo. Talk about diverse! How does that translate over to crime statistics? The results will shock you.
As you can guess, the 20% of blacks in NYC are suspects in almost 64% of murders. Our friends from south of the border, the mestizo population making up 28% of NYC, are responsible for almost exactly their proportion of murder at 28.5%. Whites and Asians are dramatically underrepresented at 4.8% and 2.8% and both groups are more likely to be victims of murder than to be suspects. We will see this pattern repeated.
Whites and Asians are higher percentages of the suspects here but still well below their racial percentage as a whole, while mestizos are significantly higher. I was surprised to see blacks at “only” 49% of the suspects but I was not surprised to see that they are only 37.7% of victims while Whites and Asians are much more likely to be victims than suspects. This is especially true for Whites who are 18% of rape victims and 11.3% of suspects meaning lots of White women raped by non-Whites, presumably blacks who are more likely to commit interracial violent crime than mestizos.
Here we see blacks even more overrepresented than in murders with 64.5% of robbery suspects being identified as blacks. Asians and Whites are once again far more likely to be victims that suspects, as are mestizos, while blacks are less than 30% of robbery victims. I assume this has a lot to do with robberies including a lot of small businesses that are more likely to be owned and operated by every race but blacks.
Asians are 1.9% and Whites are 1.7% of shooting suspects, indicating that apart from blacks and mestizos, a New York City of just Whites and Asians would have almost no shootings at all.
New York schools are just holding pens for future (and current) criminals until they get old enough to earn a trip to Rikers.
