Black Crime Claims Life of Apologist for Black CrimeHe's dead. Shot by a coupla black thugs. Three times. In a park. In the head. Guess they didn't get the memo. Probably didn't even realize they were suffering from white privilege. Poor guys.
David Ruenzel knew, better than most, about the white privilege that killed him.
As a writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center, one of this favorite topics was rooting out racism. And how white racism is permanent. White racism is everywhere. And white racism explains everything.
This mantra of the Critical Race Theory and the Southern Poverty Law Center applied to all white people because, even if they were not personally cracking the whips, or breaking the skulls, white people benefitted from a racist system that did all that — and a lot more.
Ruenzel was writing about white privilege for the Southern Poverty Law Center as far back as 1997 — long before it became the rage at college campuses, newsrooms, churches, high schools and even grade schools.
I was looking at black and white murder statistics for the US last year and made an interesting observation. Using the 2013 racial breakdown of murder victims and defendants (victims: White 5,855 and Black 6,454), racial breakdown of persons arrested for murder White 2,755 and Black 2,698) and US population estimates (white 244,495,567 and black 41,204,793) you come up with the following:
VICTIMS OF MURDER
For whites, the national rate last year was 2.4 victims per 100,000 white population.
For blacks, the national rate last year was 15.7 victims per 100,000 black population.
DEFENDANTS ARRESTED FOR MURDER
For whites, the national arrests for murder last year was 1.2 persons per 100,000 population.
For blacks, the national arrests for murder last year was 7.0 persons per 100,000 population.
Our national murder rate in 2013 was 4.5 per 100,000. The white population victim murder rate for the US that same year (2.4) was close to Canada's national murder rate:
The national homicide rate fell to 1.44 murders per 100,000 people in 2013, down from 156 the year before. There were 505 murders reported last year, 38 fewer than in 2012.
Toronto topped the list with more murders than any other city in Canada, while Regina, Sask. had the highest homicide rate per 100,000 people. Regina’s 3.84 homicide rate was nearly twice the national average.
