To the Editor:
by Paul Sheehan. Saturday, 20 May 1995
from The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)

At age 87, having been a registered Republican for over 55 years, today 
I became a Democrat.

The longest war America has ever fought is the Dirty War, and it is not 
over. It has lasted 30 years so far and claimed more than 25 million 
victims. It has cost almost as many lives as the Vietnam War. It 
determined the result of last year's congressional election.

Yet the American news media do not want to talk about the Dirty War, 
which remains between the lines and unreported. In fact, to even suggest 
that the war exists is to be discredited. So let's start suggesting, 

No matter how crime figures are massaged by those who want to 
acknowledge or dispute the existence of a Dirty War, there is nothing 
ambiguous about what the official statistics portray: for the past 30 
years a large segment of black America has waged a war of violent 
retribution against white America.

And the problem is getting worse, not better. In the past 20 years, 
violent crime has increased more than four times faster than the 
population. Young blacks (under 18) are more violent than previous 
generations and are 12 times more likely to be arrested for murder than 
young whites.

Nearly all the following figures, which speak for themselves, have not 
been reported in America: 
•According to the latest US Department of Justice survey of crime 
victims, more than 6.6 million violent crimes (murder, rape, assault and 
robbery) are committed in the US each year, of which about 20 per cent, 
or 1.3 million, are inter-racial crimes. •Most victims of race crime - 
about 90 per cent - are white, according to the survey "Highlights from 
20 Years of Surveying Crime Victims", published in 1993. •Almost 1 
million white Americans were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by 
black Americans in 1992, compared with about 132,000 blacks who were 
murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by whites, according to the same 
survey. •Blacks thus committed 7.5 times more violent inter-racial 
crimes than whites even though the black population is only one-seventh 
the size of the white population. When these figures are adjusted on a 
per capita basis, they reveal an extraordinary disparity: blacks are 
committing more than 50 times the number of violent racial crimes of 
whites. •According to the latest annual report on murder by the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation, most inter-racial murders involve black 
assailants and white victims, with blacks murdering whites at 18 times 
the rate that whites murder blacks. 
These breathtaking disparities began to emerge in the mid-1960's, when 
there was a sharp increase in black crime against whites, an upsurge 
which, not coincidentally, corresponds exactly with the beginning of the 
modern civil rights movement.

Over time, the cumulative effect has been staggering. Justice Department 
and FBI statistics indicate that between 1964 and 1994 more than 25 
million violent inter-racial crimes were committed, overwhelmingly 
involving black offenders and white victims, and more than 45,000 people 
were killed in inter-racial murders. By comparisons 58,000 Americans 
died in Vietnam, and 34,000 were killed in the Korean war.

When non-violent crimes (burglary, larceny, car theft and personal 
theft) are included, the cumulative totals become prodigious. The Bureau 
of Justice Statistics says 27 million non-violent crimes were committed 
in the US in 1992, and the survey found that 31 per cent of the 
robberies involved black offenders and white victims (while only 2 per 
cent in the reverse).

When all the crime figures are calculated, it appears that black 
Americans have committed at least 170 million crimes against white 
Americans in the past 30 years. It is the great defining disaster of 
American life and American ideals since World War II.

All these are facts, yet by simply writing this story, by assembling the 
facts in this way, I would be deemed a racist by the American news 
media. It prefers to maintain a paternalistic double-standard in its 
coverage of black America, a lower standard.


To the Editor:

This can be pointed out in Australia, but not in the USA. So much for 
our free speech and free press.

just a race baiting s.o.b.? Whatever, jail statistics, which are 
available, show that Black America is paying a price for criminal 
aggression. ---Editor)
