Out of 318,000 people, St. Louis is 49.2 percent black 43.9 percent white (as of 2010 U.S. Census).
Our good friends at the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department put out not only an annual report on crime broken down by race, but a weekly analysis of the yearly crime rate.
Also, conveniently, breaking out violent crime by the race of suspects.
And for the year 2022, two years after the joyous year Black Lives Matter triumphed nationwide courtesy of the ghost of George Floyd, what percent of homicides in St. Louis have a black suspect?
For 2022, 141 of 148 known homicide suspects were black, or 95% of known homicide suspects in the 43% white city of St. Louis were black.
Black Lives Matter, though. Right?
For all of 2022 in St. Louis, 77 of the homicides have no suspect.
But we are told Black Lives Matter… and anyone pointing out the reality of gun crime and murder in 2021 America is irredeemable for their grievous sin of pattern recognition.
Could the problem black individuals collectively create better be on display than in St. Louis?
If St. Louis had no black population, how many homicides would the city have had in 2022? Would it be one of the most dangerous cities in not just the USA, but the entire world in this black-free population hypothetical (when its population currently is 49.2 percent black, 43.9 percent white)?
Conversely, if the city were all-black, how many homicides would St. Louis boast yearly?
