The Hate that Dare Not Speak Its Name

I've posted this graphic from the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) before, but given the predictable outrage over the failure of the Ferguson grand jury to indict police officer Darren Wilson, it's worth another look. For if the injustice known as interracial crime is to be protested, why then Al Sharpton & Co. shouldn't be the only ones taking to the streets. Perhaps the reason no one raises the issue when the victims are not part of a 'protected class' is due to the fact that the grieving supporters don't burn their own town down after such a 'tragedy' (see more on the use of that word on my latest podcast). Regardless, the numbers in this 'race war' speak for themselves (as chronicled in the book "White Girl Bleed A Lot"), that is, when it comes to casualties it's fairly clear who's being victimized the most.
