I’m sick of this idea that if you are white, you won’t be subject to violence or murder.

Let’s just debunk this right now with facts, using your own source (which isn’t properly cited btw). It’s like you didn’t even read the reports. Anywho, this is all according to the 135-page document that is the 2008 report on Victimization in the United States.As you can see in the first table, whites commit more single-offender violent crimes per year, as would be expected when we take the size of the population into consideration. However, as shown in the second table, the white-black and black-white offender-victim percentages are about on par with one another. But again, given the sheer population of whites in the country, that still means more violent crimes against blacks occur every year. 
Let’s also not forget that you’re more likely to fall victim to a violent crime at the hands of someone you already know.


Whites:Violent crimes in which the victim was white: 67.4%Violent crimes in which the victim was black: 15.9%
Blacks:Violent crimes in which the victim was white: 15.4%Violent crimes in which the victim was black: 64.7%So I suppose what I’m trying to say is that I call bullshit. U.S. Department of Justice (2010).

Table 42



Whites:
Violent crimes in which the victim was white: 67.4%
Violent crimes in which the victim was black: 15.9%

Blacks:
Violent crimes in which the victim was white: 15.4%
Violent crimes in which the victim was black: 64.7%


So I suppose what I’m trying to say is that I call bullshit.

White authors can write detailed descriptions of mythical creatures with 6 heads but when it comes to including poc they’re stuck and don’t know how to include us without adhering to negative stereotypes and caricatures. Lol ok.
