Here's an interesting gun crime statistic for 2013 from the CDC -- it's gun assaults, non-fatal (it's interesting because the CDC, unlike the FBI, actually tries to count Hispanics):

Race Ethnicty Number of injuries Population

All Races 62,220* 316,128,839
White Non-Hispanic 6,581 200,918,513
Black 26,374 43,696,271
Hispanic 10,799* 51,177,185
Other Non-Hispanic 1,160* 20,336,870
Not Stated 17,306*

http://webappa.cdc.gov/sasweb/ncipc/nfirates2001.html

And from Pew:
Quote:
The new research also suggests a paradox: While blacks are significantly more likely than whites to be gun homicide victims, blacks are only about half as likely as whites to have a firearm in their home (41% vs. 19%). Hispanics are less likely than blacks to be gun homicide victims and half as likely as whites to have a gun at home (20%).

But, yeah, guns are the problem.

That breakdown has nothing to do with people's ethnicity alone. Only the drug war and how it intersects with poverty and how this in turn intersects with different ethnic communities that had or have it tougher (schooling, jobs, language, certain prejudices sure etc etc) than your usual suburban white ass with a bunch of guns in his basement.

You're saying the pew article that shows drastic disparities between ownership and violence isn't useful? It makes me think of two issues alone: poverty (or lack of opportunities) and the war on drugs.

Clearly *illegal* firearms must make up a lot of the discrepancy too.

The good thing about the Eloi is they're too weak to really do anything.
