The FBI finally got around to reporting its Uniform Crime Reporting statistics for 2021. For complicated bureaucratic methodological reasons there was a huge decline in cooperation by local police departments, from the mid 80 percents in 2020 to 64 percent of the population in 2021. Among police departments not submitting data under the new, more complicated format are the NYPD and the LAPD.
This makes comparing year to year changes dubious.
But still… the black percentage of known murder offenders surged from a record 56.5% in 2020 to an insane 60.4% in 2021.
This change may be due to a selection effect. Or it could really be due to the “racial reckoning” that the Establishment media declared after George Floyd’s death on May 25, 2020.
Keep in mind that murder investigation closure rates are lower in black communities due to “snitches get stitches.”
Overall, America in the Current Year has a gigantic black gun-murder problem.
Since 1980, the year with the lowest fraction of known murder offenders who were black was 1984, the peak year of the Reagan Era, the year of The Cosby Show, Beverly Hills Cop, and Purple Rain.
Contra Orwell, 1984 was a good year.
