109 thoughts on “David Banner Flawlessly Explains the Psychological Warfare Black Men Face Every Day to Avoid Being Killed by Police

  1. "If you don't make ME comfortable, we will (can, and feel we have a RIGHT to) kill you" – And that is the mindset when it comes to minorities, and especially black men in America, plain, and simple. If I don't feel safe, by just your presence, regardless of your actions, I have a right to make a preemptive attack on you. And it is justified because the actions of ANY black male, can be attributed to EVERY black male. And since I'm relying on statistics, and stereotypes to make these assumptions, they are not unreasonable, nor illogical. And this sick mindset is so ingrained, and so a part of the American psyche that is how you get the George Zimmerman(s), the Michael Dunn(s), the Theodore Wafer(s), and all the unarmed police killings.

    That is just how it is.

    The whole truth and nothing but.

  4. Dedric Davis says:

    cops are not paid to protect us they are paid to protect the United States which is a corporation! we are the property of that corporation.

    Nice song sista i love it

  6. Tony Butler says:

    Man David banner always speaking the truth that white people kno but don't want to hear keep up the good work banner he no scared to say wat we all feel as black people

  7. Did people expect any different from a country founded on black slaves. I hope everyone realises now that obama is a puppet for white supremacy. Black people need to wake up and stop trying to intergrate and equal with whites, it WILL never happen. They are killing us in africa, in the U.S. Permeating gangsta culture and continued negative representation in the media over decades as to de-sensitive people to the suffering of blacks. Remember these people work in time scales of DECADES this is all carefully crafted. All psychological.

  8. Beautiful song Allow your voice to encourage, inspire, and speak to the issues within your generation. Use your voice to build a nation.

    Thanks so much. Please pass along! 🙂

  11. There's only way to make them feel comfortable. It's simply to NOT BE BLACK! No matter what you wear or how you act they wont like you. Plain and simple. Not all but a large portion. What we need to do as a people is keep our communities tight nit. We need to stop trying to make other nations accept us & just be who we are. You shouldn't have to wear a polo shirt & act preppy to go to a corner store in a Caucasian neighborhood. Fuck that! That's why we should keep the money flowing with our own businesses & build our own neighborhoods up. Mostly every other race love their own people except us… As soon as you tell a negro to learn to have self love for his own people you'll always here "But you should love all humans." Sure love everyone, but you always have to start with yourself first right? This is why we're so far behind & other nations aren't. Build the inner first, then work outwards.

  12. Police are paid to protect us. The military protects the country.

  13. Ralph Mouth says:

    Ramonda Mondo Stevenson No, police are here to protect the state. The military is here to protect the government. We're here to protect ourselves…..

  14. Damn Mondo I wanted to come to your defense as a brother but they are right, all of my research backs ralphs claim. But heres the thing ralph, who protects us from the police? Court cases that laid that precedent were about legality and is the police RESPONSIBLE for your individual protection. But one of the things David is saying in this piece and I agree is that that assumes the polive themselves are not breaking the law or violating constitutional rights. What happens when they do? And believe me they do a lot more when it comes to young Black men.

  15. Say it again banner…reporter was hot when he said that. This started with brother John punch. They gave him worse sentence then the other white slaves.

  16. Goddessweaves RawVirgin says:

    Cain committed the first murder by killing his brother! They are all from that same Wicked murderous bloodline and shall be burned off the face of the earth, all who choose hate!
    LOVE VS HATE! Choose wisely people or repent of your wickedness , Not even death will go where those who choose HATE is going! What must be will be! #Woe be unto the wicked!

    Nice song Bri

  18. John Joseph says:

    Here's a song I produced and wrote playing on Stl radio called peaks dedicated to mike brown and the victims of ferguson http://www.soundcloud.com/legacyproductionsent/peaks

  19. Just food for thought…..his last argument about Martin doesn't really hold any water. Treyvon was not attacked by a police officer. Zimmerman was an overzealous community watchmen with a gun permit. Also, Zimmerman is Hispanic not white. Cant hold whites eternally responsible and make ridiculous assumptions like white people say "if you don't make me comfortable, we will kill you."

  20. Josh Matthew says:

    cops are paid to protect the status quo not country nor people.

  23. *still not a white cop

  24. William Speaks says:

    As long as we stay in the US we will be under attack by the US citizenry, and color does not matter if anyone can understand that?

  25. Paulette Emechete says:

    Cops are paid to protect the white structure, period.

  26. Nancy Fernandez says:

    Tyler Pombrio, so do you think Hispanics cannot be racist? Because I know plenty of Hispanics who not only do not want to recognize they have African in their blood they behave as if they want to be identified as white.

  27. Nancy Fernandez Thats true. But it still doesn't support his argument. The point is he is arguing that whites police don't respect the afican american struggle. It doesnt matter what you identify as because at the end of the day you cant deny your ethnic background. Of course any race can be racist but the fact is Banner is specifically saying whites. Also, I was pointing out that the Treyvon Martin example doesnt support his argument specifically for that reason.

  29. Lonnell Bowman says:

    He never said Zimmerman was a cop..

  30. Lonnell Bowman I know but he is trying to make that connection…..he is wrong

  31. Ashly Fuller says:

    Honestly, when a cop sees an apparent black person they don't care if their from Nigeria or New Orleans Louisiana. So why should anyone else care about Zimmerman's racial background? David Banners point is that Trayvon Martin was followed and then murdered because he was black. Which goes back to him saying other races, including black, don't see value in black lives. So his statement regarding Trayvon/Zimmerman is conducive to his entire argument.

  32. Is that the same David Banner who made "Like A Pimp" The problem with society is society its self.

  33. Annette Love says:

    "…Bias is one thing, racism is another. Racism is the ability to impose your view points, biased as they are as normative. And then have the power to reinforce as necessary, and primarily exclusive." Michael Eric Dyson.

  34. Take it from a former Marine. You are correct.

  35. Let's not forget the decades of mass incarceration. More psychological than ever but still physical. Murdered or railroaded, they simply make us dissappear.

  36. Do a search on him to see just how much he changed. You may just be amazed.

  37. The Edomites are playing the roll against the ISRAELITES…and we cant do anything about it until the messiah come back then the tables will turn…. GOD SAID THAT HE HATES ESAU.

  38. Tokunboh Jiboque says:

    No sir, respectfully, YOU are wrong. If you really followed and listened carefully at 2:12, he CLEARLY states that "The thing that AMERICA", (not White Cops…not even just cops)…AMERICA…Latino, Caucasian, other African-Americans, America period, that, "Black folks, if you don't make me comfortable, we will kill you." Now prior to that he did mention Whites SPECIFICALLY, but his line of reasoning is generally speaking towards the AMERICAN mindset, thus Tyler, no disrespect intended, but your argument holds no water on that level. America, regardless of ethnic background, has bought into the brainwashed fallacy that African-Americans are the problem or the thing to fear in America. Our communities have been portrayed as communities of little or no value, to be denigrated and destroyed without consequence. David Banner is on point.

  39. The Indians and Mexicans got theirs .were is ours(blacks) stop letting others steal our shit. Like Dr.Dre sold beat headphones to Apple.the Jerry curl incentor.,Johnson and Johnson, Def Jam etc.

  40. Debra Oneofthefew says:

    Love the song!

  41. Bri Deleece says:

    Thanks to all of you that took the time to listen! I really appreciate it.

  42. Damn, I wish I could like you comment more than once.

    I agree with everything he say

    wake up Raymond

  45. Shalonne Tiffany Wellington says:

    yes plz come out from under that rock! his music represents the revolution!

  46. Shalonne Tiffany Wellington says:

    i innerstand that because of class but race is still a factor because of how whites and blacks were socialized

  47. Ryan Wilson says:

    Blaming all white people is a touch hypocritical isn't it? Assuming all white people think this way is a profiling a tad bit ya think? Holding today's white generation accountable for what happened decades ago isn't the answer either.

  48. Tony Gtone Johnson says:

    There was a US Supreme Court verdict that said police are NOT charged with protecting the public look it up! They are however, required to protect personal property, and black folks own very little property.

  49. I'm with David in this one "if you don't value black life than its easy to eradicate it".

  50. “Saving private Ryan is a fictional movie written by Robin Rodat and directed by Steven Spielberg. I often wonder, did Robin Rodat cruise the streets of the ghetto? Did watching the constant lack of life in our hooded streets inspire him with the story line for the movie.”.
    Of course he didn’t cruise around the hood duh….
    I KNOW WHAT YOUR’RE THINKING, WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT? Let me explain why I'm using this movie for the beginning of this RANT. See, the movie is about a Para trooper, private first class James Francis Ryan. Ryan is the last surviving brother of his four who were already killed in the war and a squad of eight men was tasked to save Ryan and bring him home, because he is the last of the Ryan bloodline. And I got to thinking–I’ve spoken to mothers who have relayed to me that all their sons were ‘MURDERED/ GUN DOWNED in the streets…the last of their bloodline. See my father had three sons. I'm a twin and my youngest brother ‘God bless his soul’ was killed in car accident years ago. My twin has three sons. His sons will carry the last name Carter for years to come. Me on the other hand, I have a daughter and when she bares children she’ll be extending her husband’s last name. So, my contribution to the Carter’s ends because I have no sons – not because I was KILLED – for something petty no less.
    “PEOPLE LISTEN, THIS IS SOME SERIOUS SHIT I'M TALIKNG ABOUT HERE”.
    ”It’s no secret that young black men die every day from hot lead passing through their bodies. It has become a norm for black people in general to walk and talk about it to the point where ‘black people aren’t even ducking anymore’. The mass shootings in our community has got to stop.
    “WHO’S SAVING THE CHILDREN”.
    Look, am I wrong for not being concerned about those youngsters that have already killed and have been murdered as a result of making the choice of being in the DRUG GAME. No, I don’t think so. God has sealed their fate and he only knows to what end. My concern now, is for the ‘CHILDREN and INNOCENT BYSTANDERS.’ Is this too much to ask for –their safety? Let me take a moment to send my condolences to people who lost loved ones because of those people who participate in shootouts and don’t even kill the intended target ‘they cant even get that right’ because of their petty feuds/stray bullets.
    SMH
    SAFETY – Is it too much to ask for? I mean parents who want their sons and daughters to go to school or play on the block without the fear of a stray bullet ending their lives.
    Here are some tips that I thought of that could help save children and or adults from the ongoing shootouts that’s leaving a trail of BLOOD AND BODIES in its wake.

    We're already integrated.

  52. Maurice Fails Jr I liked it for you and yours as well.

  53. Jesse McGhee says:

    'Truth is mighty, and will prevail.' It is able to make falsehood blush, and tear from hypocrisy its mask, and annihilate prejudice, and overthrow persecution, and break every fetter.

  54. Your exactly right, that last sentence is the key. If you don't make me comfortable I can do whatever I want to you and if you try to fight your in the wrong because I can say you are the aggressor or not it doesn't matter.

  55. Donielle Owens says:

    Question. What difference does it make whether or not your last name continues on when Carter is really just a slave name any way? CARTER IS NOT YOUR BLOODLINE. It is the name of the MAN who owned your ancestors and nothing more. Your bloodline is your bloodline. The fact that your nephews get to keep your masters name and your daughter gets her husbands last name will make no difference in helping yours or your brothers children know where they came from. I can about guarantee that you won't even be able to trace your REAL bloodline past 1850 unless your grandparent or great grandparents kept an oral or written history which is less likely because back in 1850 most blacks were not allowed to read or write.

  56. Lets get down to the truth. Most White people only get to experience Blacks through TV, Videos or Media airways and most of them have brought in to those lying images portrayed by the media. The fact of the matter is that those images are ported by Blacks, strangely enough some of the same people that's paid by the Image-makers think they have the right to speak for the masses of Black people, like we voted them to speak for us. The real leaders that the masses of blacks support, the media have censored them from speaking publicly. Those are the people that have the real solutions. To be totally honest most whites are genetically afraid that we will do to them what they have done to us and we will never act with such hatred in our hearts cause GOD didn't create us that way. The police are simply caring out a plan that has been in affect for years but we are getting tired of this now and major change will be coming. "He that control the images, control the race" The truth will crush falsehood.

  57. Today's white people are not to blame but they are the very same people as their ancestors. People are a continuation of their forbears and every sensible black person knows the evil which was there before in previous generations of white people; is still active and in the same people's blood. History is a continuation of events, the future happenings of tomorrow will be a product of today.

  58. Vicki Hatter says:

    I wish there was a share option on your post…..

  59. The video won't play on my phone…it must know I'm white.

  61. Heyward Johnson says:

    When will we Black people have to stop making White folks feel comfortable so we can Breathe without fearing for our lives.

  62. Jennifer Lopez says:

    White kids shoot up schools, kill their parents! White husbands and wives kill each other for insurance money so stop the propaganda it's damn annoying for those who know the whole truth!

  63. Jennifer Lopez says:

    What about that slender man 12 year olds attempting to murder their peer? If you watch a Discovery ID Show Marathon or a Snapped all you see is cold calculated murder of parents and spouses in white home for money or because their mom said they cannot date. Stop polarizing the black situation. Since whites are killing white for million dollar life insurance policies it gives them value! It barbaric the way America has on these rose colored glasses. How many schools are their kids going to shoot up? How many black widow wives are in their community. Well don't count one with out the others. Cold blooded calculated murder for cash is straight wickedness! Stop the finger pointing it's not even a balanced argument is diperportionate!

  64. Ryan Wilson says:

    So what does that say about blacks? That is got to be the most prejudice, profilistic comment I have ever read! Basically what you are saying is that ALL PEOPLE (not just whites so we arent being racist on your end) are products of their ancestors? I dont even know what else to say! Racism towards whites is tolerable these days and people take advantage….it's ridiculous.

  65. Afeda Kubeba says:

    David Bammer is one of the most perplexing rappers out there. He is the Stephen Colbert of rap, playing a character in him medium but is actually completely different.

  66. Demetrius Gatewood says:

    Let me say this that I'm so sick and tired of people judging music artist when they do not know anything about them. Lavell Crump A.K.A David Banner is NOTHING Short of his intelligence. This man you all call David Banner is former graduate of Southern University A&M College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he was a 4.0 student and also President of the Student Government Association. Music was and is his passion before during and obviously after his collegiate days. His was always about social awareness for the cause. Anyone who knew Lavell Crump back in the early mid 90s at Southern University. .knows him by this than his rap game….I support him 1,000 % #GoJaguarAlum

  67. @ Donielle Owens. That is a dose of truth that is truly challenging to swallow. My girlfriend once gifted me a geneology map framed quite nicely; upon opening it and reading it in full it was quite apparent that the true history of my bloodline (fathers side) was managed by someone else. Thankful to be alive none the less this brought a rail of emotions and forced me to continue to look at the history of a culture that has… to put it simply treated differently for a long time. I love people but to deny history and its effective output on a culture….well that would just be ignorant. God Bless Everyone. These are amazing times!

  68. You better say that David! 🙂

  69. Rahshanique WhoDat Woods says:

    Always speaking the absolute truth!!!

    So well stated Stephen!..BINGO! Nuff said! 🙂 🙂

  72. Casey Rai says:

    Feeling good about not having any children.

  73. Ed Snowden says:

    So sad but sooo very true.

  74. Any prejudice towards white's is infinitely admirable and commendable. It would be stupid for a group of people louthed and oppressed by a group white devils to continue loving them without question. White's are the only one's capable of racism as the combination of said prejudice with the power to enforce it, is the true hallmark of the white supremacy mentality.

  76. what happen to David Banner he sounds totally different I mean when he came to South Carolina State he had some base in his voice but he is right.

  77. Kelley Blair says:

    My black brother killed his black wife

  78. Ryan Wilson says:

    Yeah I feel your pain. I often sympathize with persons with your mindset too. Hoping and wishing for them to find a way home back to the wonderful place they came.

  79. Lenny Belton says:

    I'm not making any of you comfortable. I used to think I had to. No more.

  80. in what world was George Zimmerman a cop? Also, why do race baiters label Zimmerman as being White (oppressor non-minority) when he gets into a confrontation with a Black man, when those same race instigators would label him only as Hispanic (oppressed minority) if he was in a confrontation with someone who happened to be white and non-Hispanic. It is time that we stopped judging people by their race or ethnicity and stopped generalizing about groups of people (including cops) because of some exaggerated thing we see in the media. 700,000 cops in America have hundreds of thousands of interactions with citizens every day – some mistakes will happen. Fear that you will be killed or terrorized by a cop is just not realistic, when compared with the far greater likelihood that you will be struck by lightning. Such generalizations about cops is as harmful to community safety as any other fear spreading generalization about any other group of people.

  81. James Fennessy… did you read what I wrote? If you did, I don't think you understood it, and if you didn't well then there is no need for a discussion.

    The generalization about police officers is not based on some random thought, but in history. Police officers no matter what their race, shoot, and kill unarmed black males more than anyone else. Now mind you that is not from, IMO, any malicious intent, it is just that LEO are more apt to make bad judgment calls, mistakes, when the person they are dealing with is a black male.

    "STUDIES FIND INHERENT BIAS… Still, social psychologists from Stanford and Yale universities and John Jay College of Criminal Justice have conducted research – including the 2004 study "Seeing Black: Race, Crime and Visual Processing" – showing there is an implicit racial bias in the American psyche that correlates black maleness with crime"

    "Whites commit crimes, blacks are criminals" If you understand that statement, you understand the paranoid racial mindset of American. When a white person commits a crime it is their crime, and it is seen by society as an individual act. However when a minority, especially a black person commits a crime, it is seen as indicative of the entire group, a collective act, i.e. "all of them are like that', and it is ingrained within them, the entire group And this illogical rational is the paradigm in which permeates all American institutions, culture, and the societal psyche. This is the mindset that says, it is perfectly reasonable to judge “all”, by the actions of “any”, who look the same. It is the mindset that says it is perfectly reasonable to judge “A”, by the actions of “B”, even though “A” has done nothing to warrant it, except that “A” and “B” look the same. And looking the same is enough for “A” to be treated and judged as “B” who has done something negative, or criminal. Now does this excuse bad behavior by “B” … HELL NO!!! But it is the mindset that says all minority males especially black males are “suspicious”, by virtue of being a black male, is that logical? Does that make any sense? And the sad part is that NOT only white people think like this, plenty of black, Hispanic, Asian, Indian, whatever, think in those same terms, and have that mindset. Again…"Whites commit crimes, blacks are criminals" If you understand that statement, you understand the paranoid racial mindset of American.

  82. Wedlin Sainval says:

    Man, what a great reflection! How do we get to control the images? We have so many intelligent black men and women who are doing great things, not just for the United States but for the advancement of mankind in this society. I hope that one day people will judge us not by not the negative things they see on TV but by the positives.

  83. Wedlin Sainval The image-makers control the media outlets. God is greater then their plans and so is our people. "Each one teach one" and be a great example of who we are as a people. Just do the work and everything else will take care of it self. We will get to the promise-land.

  84. I'm trying to help change that. I can't do it alone though. I need serious help.

  85. Sean Odell says:

    How about we ban firearms? Regardless wether or not we are a free country a gun gives people the ability to instantly take some ones life, could be by accident or on purpose. The citizens do not need to hold that power. If every person has the right to a trail how is giving police and citizens a firearm going to maintain that when all they have to do it pull a trigger and some ones life is ended. People won't need weapons to defend themselves from others, and as far as defending ourselves from the government I doubt a 9mm is going to help. Also it is a cops job to arrest some one who THEY believe is in the wrong. People should understand that and accept it, if they did nothing wrong prove it by going to the police station and showing the evidence.

  86. Police are here to enforce the law, that's it that's all

  87. Jeffery Betts says:

    Da'Time Is'now, are you serious? Are you saying most white people don't have black friends or at least acquaintances? And white people are afraid of black people at the genetic level? You are part of the problem if you're having these scary thoughts. The media is terrible, but they are greedy, not racist. Racial division is great news, and lots of people are buying into it. I think people on average are a lot better and more color blind than you think.

  88. Jeffery Betts I agree with you on that. The media is a big part of the problem. No i am not saying what you thought I said. I'm saying it appears that way because so many people are falling into that crap led by the media instead of taking it to a human level.

  89. Benjamin Gordillo says:

    well im not white and I'd rather not come across any black person on the street. if black people acted civilized towards themselves and other races that aren't white, maybe a small part of what they suffer at the hands of white people would change.

  90. Heyward Johnson says:

    Benjamin Gordillo It's not surprising, the fact is Mr Gordillo you have more to fear from your own brethren then you do from Black people . You're a direct benefactor from our struggle, please don't every forget that.

  91. Rok Land says:

    hating dudes always find a reason to criticize but never find a reason to do it themselves. You don't like David Banner because of his type of music? You fight for black life then! I didn't think so.

  92. Rok Land says:

    White people of today are not to blame for Slavery but they benefit directly from it and today's white supremacy tactics. So yes, you are to blame.

  93. Ryan Wilson says:

    Yeah good thing some people are smart enough to accept the past and move forward in a positive way without blaming individuals based on their color. Most people that believe that b.s are too ignorant to move forward. The sad part is that you are raising your children to believe the same ignorant b.s and they too will believe they are always victims. Just remember stagnant water won't produce fruit.

  94. Ryan Wilson says:

    Im not quite sure how I'm responsible for slavery but that would make you responsible for starvation. You know, if I thought like you did. Because in Africa, white people aren't making black people starve! Whites don't run that country. True shit! Its your fault!

  95. PEOPLE are worried about THE USA getting attacked wtf? Black American people have been attacked from day one in there own states cities counties ..IM JUST A MAD MOTHER OF TWO SONS WHO HAPPENS TO FOLLOW THE LAWS AT ALL COST …..BUT TO THINK OF A ITCHY FINGER BASTID WOULD TAKE ONE DOWN

  96. Emmett Xaa says:

    I liked it for you too Maurice Fails Jr. I don't have to comment after what brother Stephen posted. Spoken with deep truth and conviction about the racism and racist attitude we face each day in America the so called land of the free.

  97. Emmett Xaa says:

    Aubrey Hayes your history is awkward. African slavery was not the atrocity of the Atlantic slave trade.trade especially here in the United states.. Chattel slavery forced men/women into being not seen as human. The Irish slaves did not perform as well as the African slaves so they got put into cushy indentured servitude.
    As far as America is concerned racism has prevailed by making slavery work in other forms such as capitalism and prisons. White terrorism tore down our financial institutions(ex:Tulsa OK bombing 1921).
    Even today look at the disproportionate numbers of African vs. Caucasian Americans incarcerated higher for the same crimes. Also look at the educational opportunities for Caucasians vs. African Americans. Racist America helped to destroy African people not the reverse. So the next time you get on your white supremacist pride horse be sure you know more about American racism and genocide against African people. So nooo, the opportunities are not always there even when you have the education and skills. Study racism and America more and maybe you will get our point unless your white pride wont let you. But I doubt it will!

  98. Kelley Blair The point she is making is those are white crimes. Whites commit more crimes than black..

  99. Whites Commit More Crimes Than Blacks, FBI Says

    Whether or not Bill Bennett's offhand comment that aborting black babies would not reduce the crime rate was racist, it was wrong.

    You could abort every black baby in this country and your crime rate would not go down," Bennett said on his radio program "Bill Bennett's Morning in America."

    "That would be an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would not go down," he said.

    According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 910,200 of the men and women behind bars last year were black, 777,500 were white and 395,400 were Hispanic.

    In 1997, about 9 percent of the black population in the U.S. was under some form of correctional supervision compared to 2 percent of the white population and over 1 percent of other races.

    Blacks were two times more likely than Hispanics and five times more likely than whites to be in jail.

    But those numbers count only those who were jailed for a crime. In 2003, more than twice as many whites as blacks were arrested and charged with a crime, according to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports.

    Of 9.5 million offenses charged, 6.7 million whites were arrested, compared to 2.5 million blacks.

    The most common crimes were drug abuse violations, resulting in arrest of 770,430 whites and 381,006 blacks.

    Whites were far more likely to be arrested driving under the influence. Of 998,035 total offenses, 877,810 of those arrested where whites.

    Blacks, meanwhile, were more than twice as likely as whites to be arrested for gambling, 5,153 to 1,964.

    And while blacks comprise about 13 percent of the population, they were charged with most of the robberies, 40,993 compared to 33,070 for whites, and nearly as many homicides–4,395 black and 4,454 white.

    Whites outnumbered blacks about 2-1 in arrests for other crimes, including rape (11,766-6,114), aggravated assault (203,076-103,697), burglary (143,889-103,697) and larcey/theft (556,215-233,806.)

    Whites also were most often arrested for motor vehicle theft, arson, other assaults, fraud, embezzlement, dealing in stolen property, vandalism, weapons charges, prostitution, sex offenses, crimes against families and children, liquor laws, drunkenness, disorderly conduct, vagrancy, curfew and loitering, suspicion, as runaways and all other offenses not including traffic.

  100. Whites Commit More Crimes Than Blacks, FBI Says

    Whether or not Bill Bennett's offhand comment that aborting black babies would not reduce the crime rate was racist, it was wrong.

    "[You could abort every black baby in this country and your crime rate would not go down," Bennett said on his radio program "Bill Bennett's Morning in America."

    "That would be an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would not go down," he said.

    According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 910,200 of the men and women behind bars last year were black, 777,500 were white and 395,400 were Hispanic.

    In 1997, about 9 percent of the black population in the U.S. was under some form of correctional supervision compared to 2 percent of the white population and over 1 percent of other races.

    Blacks were two times more likely than Hispanics and five times more likely than whites to be in jail.

    But those numbers count only those who were jailed for a crime. In 2003, more than twice as many whites as blacks were arrested and charged with a crime, according to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports.

    Of 9.5 million offenses charged, 6.7 million whites were arrested, compared to 2.5 million blacks.

    The most common crimes were drug abuse violations, resulting in arrest of 770,430 whites and 381,006 blacks.

    Whites were far more likely to be arrested driving under the influence. Of 998,035 total offenses, 877,810 of those arrested where whites.

    Blacks, meanwhile, were more than twice as likely as whites to be arrested for gambling, 5,153 to 1,964.

    And while blacks comprise about 13 percent of the population, they were charged with most of the robberies, 40,993 compared to 33,070 for whites, and nearly as many homicides–4,395 black and 4,454 white.

  102. The word black lives matter were not meant to say white lives don't matter okay. The reason behind the phrase were to let law enforcement (police) know that this is a human being you are shooting okay. Dr. King, use to hold a sign that said "I am a man". What Dr. King, was saying is respect me I am human. It is sad that black people today have to remind white folks that they are human. Follow me on twitter @revbrown51.
