Findings of the "color of crime report" 2005 (embedded further below)
• Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
• When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
• Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
• Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
• Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
• Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime a gainst a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
• Furthermore "The NCVS tells us that interracial multiple-of-fender offenses are even more lopsidedly black than interracial crime as a whole. In fact, whereas blacks committed 10,000 gang-rapes against whites between 2001 and 2003, the NCVS samples did not pick up a single “white”-on-black gang rape."
Mr. Taylor announced the publication of the foundation's report called "The Color of Crime: Race, Crime and Violence in America." The findings included the fact that, of the approximately 1.7 million interracial crimes committed in the U.S. each year, 90 percent are committed by blacks against whites. The report also found that racial prejudice is not part of the profiling police use in making traffic stops. After his prepared remarks, he took questions from the media. The foundation studies race relations in the U.S.
