    :huh Which young black males, specifically? How many were in the group? Have they been arrested? What are their names? What crimes did they commit?

    Those would be facts. She offered none, but instead offered a racial stereotype. She was fired for irresponsible journalism in confusing the two.

    She is not alone in that confusion, it appears.

    If she is confused, she shares something in common with you. Do a weighted average on these details. And completely factor out Hispanics in the calculation, even though there are 4 whites (any ethnicity) to every black . Sorry for your luck. :grin

    With the exception of their race, none of the things she said made it to your chart.

    I don't think that you understand why she was fired. She was not an anonymous nincompoop posting on an obscure fishing BBS. She was a news anchor who is held to journalistic standards.

    She said that there was no need for police to spend any time building a profile of the suspects because said it didn’t take a “criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers.”

    She characterized them:

    “They are young black men, likely teens or in their early 20s,” she wrote in the now deleted post. “They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before. They've grown up there. They know the police. They've been arrested."

    That is a racial stereotype.

    She doesn't know any of those things to be true and applicable to this case and none of them would be useful in a police investigate search for them.

    That is irresponsible journalism and violated her company policy.

    ...and quite obvious to those of us who are not blinded by bigotry. Thanks for fighting the good fight, Gary, but I'm not quite sure why you bother.

    She simply quoted facts and told the truth the squeamish and politically correct doesn't want to hear. Not sure I can dumb it down any further for you? :shrug

    You quoted Jessie Jackson representing himself using his own assets (his voice his interview his time), not the reporter using company time and asset and therefore representing someone else - her company.

    See the difference, or you don't want to see the difference?

    Why was that quote relevant?

    Your data indicates that there is a high propensity for whites to be victimized by other whites and black by other blacks.

    What "color" were the victims in the case at hand?

    The color of the victims by whose hand isn't the rub here. The chart proves that non whites are almost 4 times as likely be involve in violent crime ensuing in death. This isn't about white on white, white on black, black on black, black on white. It's about a culture of violence.

    Blacks make up 20% of the population and have almost 50% of the documented murders in 2013. It wasn't whitey driving it. Did you skip algebraic equations in school? :shrug

    Again, where is that on the chart?

    The victims were all black.

    Why don't you do your own legwork? Try seeking answers on your own time. Simply do a search on demographics. To be fair, there might be way less than 20% blacks in the US. Here's another statistical hint, that makes the reporter's point in the original post even more compelling. :Spittingcoffee

    So what you stated that the chart proved isn't even on it.

    Got it.

    Do you know the difference between algebra and division?

    Oh I got it. I assumed those who took the LSAT had some logical reasoning skills and knew roughly the general demographics of the USA.
    My bad. :grin
