Misleading Death Row Stats for Blacks & Whites

By John "Birdman" Bryant


You may be thinking that Blacks are 13% of the population and Whites are 69%. You think right, but that does not mean Blacks and Whites commit murder at the same rates. On average, Blacks commit about 51% of the nation's murders each year. While their motives for many of these murders may have been racial, my reporting it is not racism, it is fact.

When we look at those state death-row inmates, we see that while 42% of them are Black, 51% of murderers are Black. Forty-six percent (46%) are White, more than the White share of murders nationwide. But Far Leftist groups inevitably present these data this way: "Though Whites are 69% of the population, they constitute only 46% of death rown inmates."

When you read in your local paper that "36% of those executed since 1967 were Blacks, who comprise 13% of the population," take it with a grain of salt. I am going back again to the fact that 51% of all murders are committed by blacks. That would mean that their appearance in the death chamber is 15% lower than their representation in murder stats.
