Behind the Baltimore rioting

The following statistics explain a lot about the Baltimore rioting, though you’ll likely never learn of them from Sharpton, Jackson or their crony Obama:

Blacks constitute about 13.1% of America’s population.

But they are 63.4 % of Baltimore.

When it comes to crime across the U.S., the FBI reports that in 2012 blacks committed:

49.4% of all murders

32.5% of all forcible rapes

54.9% of all robberies

34.1% of all aggravated assaults

28.1% of ALL crime

But let’s not forget the dreadful Obama-Democrat economy and its disproportionate impact on young blacks. The WSJ’s Dan Henniger: “For the length of the Obama presidency, with growth significantly below norm, unemployment for blacks aged 24 and younger has hovered between 30% and 50%. That’s the real powder keg, not the police.”

  1. If we gave them more money, the statistics would moderate, huh?

  2. Giving them anything, other than that due under existing law, would be a mistake. Giving ’em probably caused the problems. If the Congress was still in Democrat hands however… Or should I say when it’s back in Democrat hands. What they should do is boost the economy with tax cuts and easing of regulations on business, at least until that 30% to 50% young black unemployment is solved. But their own black champion hasn’t been moved to do it in six years…

    Why should the Liberals do anything to solve any of this? It’s been (at least in their minds) a political win for them.

  4. Indeed, I imagine some of them think so. Keeping the pot stirred is what they do.
