    Since when were we arguing over rates? Can we keep the goalposts still for like 10 seconds?

    Racial differences exist, with blacks disproportionately represented among homicide victims and offenders

    In 2005, offending rates for blacks were more than 7 times higher than the rates for whites
    Actually, I bet you would come up with a much stronger correlation between murder rates and poverty/education, than with race.

    Eyelids brought up the race thing (typical), so we went with that. But I am sure you are right about poverty/education.

    Go ahead and try. You will fail. While lower-income people are more likely to commit crimes than those with higher incomes, the racial disparity is much, much more severe.

    I live in a very poor area of rural Ohio. The per-capita income here is lower than inner-city Cleveland. My county has not had a murder in over 25 years. Yes, not one in the entire COUNTY. The county is 99% white, uneducated, and poor.

    Actually, you are right to an extent. It looks like the better correlation may be with income inequality, not necessarily poverty alone.
