The ugly truth is white on white crime does exist. It is a growing pandemic in the white community, and if we don’t call attention to this problem soon, there will be no more white people left to run the world. 
Most of the conversation surrounding crime involves black people, who selfishly take all of the credit for being criminals. Blacks are notorious for being called thugs and gangsters, but the real MVPs (Most Violent People) are whites. Every day in cities across the country, people die at the hands of white people. What’s more, they’re killing their own kind. According to the US Department of Justice statistics, 84 percent of white people killed every year are killed by other whites. In 2011, there were more cases of whites killing whites than there were of blacks killing blacks. Between 1980 to 2008, a majority (53.3 percent) of gang-related murders were committed by white people, with a majority of the homicide victims being white as well.
In America, whites commit the majority of crimes. What’s even more troubling is that they are also responsible for a vast majority of violent crimes. In 2013, whites led all other groups in aggravated assault, larceny-theft, arson, weapons-carrying, and vandalism. When it comes to sexual assault, whites take the forcible rape cake. They are also more likely to kill children, the elderly, family members, their significant others, and even themselves! They commit more sex-related crimes, gang related crimes, and are more likely to kill at their places of employment. In 2013, an estimated 10,076 people died in the U.S. due to drunken driving crashes. Driving while drunk is almost exclusively a white crime because everyone knows black people prefer to drink on their porches or inside their homes.
So why is white on white crime so prevalent, one may ask? Is it the music they listen to? Is it the white divorce rate, resulting in more white children coming from broken homes? Perhaps it’s the TV shows they watch or the violent sports they play. More than likely, it is a combination of all of those things, with the exact root cause unclear. What is clear, though, is that not enough people are talking about the crime plaguing the white community. We need to spread the word, holding protests and demonstrations that call attention to this growing matter. Because, after all—-white lives matter, too.

    After yet another senseless, tragic mass shooting, you should be aware of some possible reasons.

    This administration’s track record is one of weakening — not strengthening — gun laws. After accepting ~$30 million from the NRA to get elected in 2016, President Trump has weakened gun laws. Along with pledging his support to those in El Paso and Dayton this week, he has:

    –Signed a law repealing the Social Security Administration rule on record submission to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System for disability recipients prohibited from possessing guns due to significant mental illness.

    The result? More than 400,000 prohibiting records will not make their way into the system, and people with severe mental illness — who are prohibited from having guns — will be able to pass a background check and get armed.

    –Trump narrowed the definition of who is a fugitive under federal law, a policy change that allows more people on the run from the law to pass a background check and get their hands on guns.

    The result? In the first six months after the policy came into place, the number of denials to fugitives plummeted by 80%.

    –The gun lobby spent more than $55 million to elect Donald Trump and NRA allies in Congress in 2016. In exchange, NRA-backed members of Congress introduced legislation to enact the NRA’s top legislative priorities.

    The result? The then GOP-led House passed a bill in March 2017 that would remove a gun prohibition for Veterans’ Affairs beneficiaries who are severely mentally ill–removing nearly 170,000 records from the background checks system.

    Stop them. Vote for sensible gun safety laws.

    You need to take in to account blacks comprise 13% of usa population to say white on white crime is the same as black on black one must adjust those number per capita … tough concept I know.

  4. andrew dahl on July 8, 2020 at 8:05 am

    72% of the US population is White. 14% percent are black . therefore in a random world of 1000 murders you would expect 640 white on white, 160 white on black murders, 160 black on white murders and under 50 black on black murders. Black on black murders are indeed outrageously higher than predicted by demographics.

    • Lesha on September 5, 2020 at 8:18 pm

      It’s true! It’s just not broadcasted like black on black crime is.

    Great piece, I wish the statisics you’ve shown in this piece were shown in other forms of the media.

    Dear Floyd

    You and I have been friends for many years and that friendship has continued even after I move back home to New York. But on August 1, 2016 your paper printed an article name “White on White Crime : Unspoken Tragedy.” When I first read this article, it made me research the authors facts, but I keep my finding to myself as you know I judge people one by one and how they treat me. Now it has reappeared as a favorite of the readers of your fine newspaper. At this time, I feel I must discredit this author for her completely fabricated article. I do this out of love as what we see in the riots in Washington State, Organ, here in New York and other place in this country will not end until the Black Community turns to the Lord and follows the 4th Step found in the Big Book of Alcoholic Anonymous which comes straight from the Bible.

    First Ms. Coddett did not common size the statistics. It is a rule of quantitative analysis that when comparing population of significantly different size you must common size the date this means turning it into a ratio or a statistical based on the population as a whole. I turned the 150 years of data into a ratio that compares the amount of crime committed by each population as compared to their percentage of the total population of United States. Here are the findings:

    Overall Crime Ratios from the lowest to the highest: Whites .75 to 1, Other .83 to 1, Hispanic .85 to 1 Blacks 2.45 to 1
    As for Ms. Coddett statement that whites are the “Most Violent People” or her MVP’s here are the violent Crime Ratios again from the lowest to the highest: Others .5 to 1, Whites .65 to 1, Hispanic 1.1 to 1 Blacks 2.9 to 1. Blacks win MVP by 5 times the amount over other, by 4.46 times over whites and by 2.6 times over Hispanics. So much for her first lie.

    As for her claim that more whites were killed by whites than blacks by blacks it is totally false. Last year Blacks committed 5,025 murders 85% were other blacks that is 4,271 Whites committed 2,726 and killed each other at 83.6% (so she got one stat right) but that is 2,279. What this means is that blacks killed 53.3% more blacks then whites killed whites. This is another false statement made by Ms. Coddett as the gang related majority were by Blacks not whites.
    As for Ms. Coddett claim that Whites commit most of the crimes not when comparing Apples to Apples. Whites are 61% of society after you remove Hispanic how where lumped in with whites by Obama to make White crime look equal to Black crime. This means under the truthful why whites are 4.69 larger a population then blacks. Under the Obama why Whites are 6.07 times larger then Blacks but yet her number are wrong either way:

    Aggravated Assault: The ratio show the following from lowest to Highest: Other .6 to 1, White .7 to 1, Hispanic 1.1 to 1, Black 2.6 to 1 the ratio are almost equal to the murder ratios. In fact, the actual number of case is almost equal Whites 126,980 Blacks 101, 513 event through there are more than 157 million whites then blacks in the country.

    Larceny-theft: The ratio again show just the opposite of Ms. Coddett claims. Again, lowest to highest Whites .63 to 1, Other 1 to 1, Hispanic 1.6 to 1, Blacks 2.2 to1. Again, Blacks lead the why.
    Arson: Whites are 2nd in this category but the category is again lead by Blacks. Lowest to the highest Other .4 to 1, Hispanic .8 to 1, Whites .92 to 1, Blacks 1.9 to 1. Have you notice a pattern with the ratios blacks are always above 1 to 1
    Weapon-carrying: Blacks lead out right in this area with 56,153 case to 45,662 case against Whites. But the ratio tell the true story. Other .3 to 1, Whites .58 to 1 Hispanics 1 to 1, Blacks 3.4 to 1. Again Ms. Coddett out right lied.

    Vandalism: Again, whites are second and the Blacks lead. Again, the Whites ratio and every other cultures ratio is below 1 to 1 and the blacks ratio is far over 1 to 1. I do not understand why this woman lies so much instead of facing reality and help her culture and telling them they need to clean up the criminality. Here are the ratios Other .5 to1, Hispanics .8 to 1, Whites .88 to 1, Blacks 2.2 to 1. Again, the blacks are 2.5 times higher in committing vandalism then the other 87% of society. This has got to say some thing to the black community about the true cause of your problems. It is not Systemic Racism it is your Systemic Criminality.
    Sexual Assault (Rape): Here are the ratios Other .48 to 1, White .76 to 1, Hispanics 1.16 to 1, Blacks 2.21 to 1. Again, another lie and again the Blacks with a ratio over 1 to2, more proof of the Black Community true problem believing the Devil (Democrats) instead of God.

    Prostitution: Whites .62 to 1, Other .8 to 1, Hispanics 1 to 1, Black 2.9 to 1.
    Other Sex Offences: Other .5 to 1, White .83 to 1, Hispanics 1.1 to 1, Blacks 1.9 to1. Finally, a ratio below 1 to 2 for blacks by a tenth of a percent but they are still the leaders in this crime area.

    Offenses Against the Family and Children: Whites are 2nd again below a 1 to 1 ratio as blacks lead again above a 1 to 2 ratio. Hispanics .5 to 1, Other .8 to 1 Whites .92 to 1, Blacks 2.2 to one another lie by Ms. Coddett.
    Driving Under the Influence: Far from an exclusively white crime. This area is lead by the other 8% of society with whites second. Hispanics 1 to 1 Blacks 1.1 to 1, Whites 1.3 to 1 Other 1.6 to 1. But still another giant lie by Ms. Coddett.

    Final the over all crime ratios Whites .75 to 1, Other .83 to 1, Hispanics .85 to 1, Blacks 2.45 to 1. There are 30 different areas of crime track by the FBI in not one of those areas do blacks have a crime ratio below 1.1 to 1. In the areas of Murder their ratio is 4.08 to 1 or 4.74 times higher than the rest of society and 8.68 times higher than whites. In the Area of Robbery blacks crime ratio is 4.2 or 4.2 times higher then the rest of society and 10.5 times higher than whites. Theft (Burglary & Larceny combined) they have a 2.25 ratio or 1.8 times higher than society and 3 times higher then whites. The truth is I could go on and on this whole article was written by a liar who is living in denial of reality. The over all crime ration make the problems in the Black Community clear. The cries of racism, White privilege, and the White on White Crime: An Unspoken Tragedy all excuses for the denial of the reality that the Black Community true problem is the Black Community and there systemic criminality. If the Black Community every want to be productive members of society they must face this reality.

      Hey Robert, Can you compile that data and ratios for the last 10-30 years? I mean your statistics were staggering especially when you mentioned those ratios. I know you stated Murders in 2019 that’s a tough pill to swallow. We all know that there was a huge problem with Racism at least 120 of those 150 years that might have some of those ratios elevated because I truly believe black people were targeted more than any other race back in the racism era. I’m convinced this has dropped drastically thank God the past 40 years, but a small percentage still exists on all fronts no doubt. I like the proof if you have the time. I’m hispanic by the way, but I’m trying to be as open minded as possible. I got to see more definitive proof in a less racially profiling era.

      You’re clearly wilfully ignorant and blatantly racist. You are horrible at numbers and I feel sorry for whoever raised you and your seed. I’ll leave it at that as I don’t waste my time with garbage.


      • qwerty on February 4, 2021 at 7:31 pm

        Nope, calling him racist for presenting data is simply absurd, although his speculation may not represent causation entirely. Furthermore, you linked one article refuting an argument he didn’t even make. Try again?

    • collin237 on October 10, 2020 at 7:29 pm

      The police are using quantitative analysis backwards and reverse-engineering the results by ignoring most crimes committed by white people, so as to maintain prison demographics.

        Wrong you can’t compare populations of different size without doing it by ratio blacks are 2.45 to 1 Hispanic are .85 to 1 other is .83 to 1 and white is .74 to 1. And whites are 4.5 larger population then blacks

  7. Jesse Atkinson on July 23, 2021 at 4:39 pm

    Why are conservatives not addressing the following horrific stats about white Americans?
    – Of the 31 categories of crime the FBI lists, whites lead 28 of them and are arrested for 70% of all crime. Per FBI stats, White males, who are just 30% of the US population, are arrested for 57% of all violent crime & lead all other groups in mass killings, rape, serial murders.
    – According to CDC data, white “deaths of despair” skyrocketed under Trump. In 2019, over 50,000 white Americans died from drug overdoses, 9,000 whites were murdered by other whites and over 40,000 whites died from suicide.
    – In 2019, white juveniles comprised 64 percent of juveniles arrested for rape and 60 percent of juveniles arrested for larceny-theft. Of juveniles arrested for drug violations in 2019, 74 percent were White per the FBI.
    – Per the FBI in 2019, out of 355,244 violent crime arrests, whites were arrested for 59% while Black Americans were arrested for 36%. According to the FBI/UCR Report analysis, white males are just 30% of the population but they’re arrested for 57% of all violent crimes
    – Per the Bureau of Justice Statistics, White men are just 30% of the population of America, but they comprise a whopping 72% of all convicted child rapists.
    – 82% of men engaged in the commercial sexual exploitation of children are white men per the Department of Justice.
    – Per Justice Department stats, 89 percent of white people killed every year are killed by other white Americans.
    – Between 2014-2018, the rate of white-on-white violent crime (12.0 per 1,000) is about four times higher than black-on-white violent crime (3.1 per 1,000) per the BJS.
    – Whites overdose on drugs at a rate 7 times higher than Black Americans per the CDC.
    – Between 2014 and 2018, the number of white on white homicide victims increased by 22 percent. In the last 35 years a whopping 465,000 white Americans have been killed by other white Americans.
    – Per the FBI, White males are 2 times more likely per capita to shoot at police officers and engage in “suicide by cop” activities than any other male demographic in the US. FBI stats show that White males are 30% of the population but they account for 63% of the cop killers.
    – When the FBI examined abuse of minors, they found that from nearly 650,000 children abused in 2017 over 68% of those abused children/victims were little white girls and boys. 1 in 3 White girls, and 1 in 5 White boys are sexually abused before they turn 18, by family members.
    – Familicides are the number one form of mass killings. And White men, who are 30% of the population, represent over 72% of all familicide perpetrators.
    – According to the Guttmacher Institute, since 1973 White women have aborted over 30 million white babies. The abortion rate for white women is 42%.
    – According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, white people made up the the largest share — at 52 percent — of people lifted from poverty by welfare or safety-net programs, while black people made up less than a quarter of that share.
    – Per the US Census, close to 70% of White Americans don’t have a college degree. Approximately 120 million White Americans just have a high school diploma or less and are not college educated. Many of these less educated White Americans are on welfare.
    – 30% of white working-age adults in central Appalachia (which includes counties in West Virginia, Eastern Kentucky, Alabama, Virginia,etc) are considered to be functionally illiterate.
    – Per Bureau of Justice Statistic stats White men are 2 times more likely per capita to kill a spouse, or their entire family than any other male group in the U.S.
    – White men are just 30% of the population, but they comprise a whopping 72% of all suicides in America.
    – Since 1973 White women have aborted over 30 million white babies and the abortion rate for white women is 42% according to the Guttmacher Institute.
    – Since 2005, the incarceration rate for Black-Americans has declined by 24% nationally, while the incarceration rate for whites has increased. Between 1990 and 2013, the number of white people in jail nearly doubled, according to the study by Vera Institute of Justice. This trend was most notable in more rural areas, correlating to the opioid crisis and heroin and meth epidemics.
    – Death rates among under-educated white Americans have now surpassed black folks overall in America. In fact, mortality rates are 30 percent higher for whites between the ages of 48-64 than for black people overall of the same age according to The Brookings Institute.

    • Robert A Wilson on July 24, 2021 at 12:08 pm

      All BS you have to use common sizing or ratio to compare different size populations and Blacks ratio are all 1.1 or greater white have only 2 ratio 1 to 1 or greater drink driving and moon shining. Whites have the lowest number of all groups tracked
