The Eric Holder Challenge: Can You Find a City Where Blacks Aren’t Arrested More Often?

Steve Sailer, Unz Review, March 5, 2015

There’s a certain Darkness at Noon vibe to the Justice Department’s jihad against Ferguson over its history of more blacks than whites getting in trouble with cops (to make up for fact that Holder’s Department couldn’t figure out any plausible justification for subjecting Darren Wilson to double jeopardy to please the outgoing boss).

But if everyone is guilty, then the Justice Department can just hammer any town they feel like?

Here’s the NYT’s graph based on the supposedly damning statistics in the Justice Department’s report:


Okay, but is everyone guilty? Can any municipality in America produce a graph where blacks don’t get in trouble with the law more than whites? The existence of equal numbers of White Malefactors somewhere or other is presumed, but can anybody identify the actual place?

If there is one, my guess would be that it would be in a white part of the country next to a big Air Force base, where most of the blacks came to town because they were eligible to join the Air Force. (These days, you have to score at close to the 50th percentile on the heavily g-loaded AFQT enlistment cognitive test to get into the Air Force.) Off the top of my head, Minot, North Dakota sounds like the best hope for a town where blacks don’t get arrested more often than whites.


Does anybody have any suggestions?

    The Eric Holder Challenge: Can You Find a City Where Blacks Aren’t Arrested More Often?


    • Oil Can Harry

      While we’re at it can Eric Holder find a city ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD where blacks don’t commit more crime than everyone else?

    • MeanWhiteBoy

      Holder should be happy. Prison is very diverse. The black prisoners are probably very happy

    • Earl P. Holt III

      And, because he is a nigro, he lacks the intellectual honesty, the character, and the insight to recognize that his fellow nigros are arrested more often than any other group precisely because they are synonymous with almost every form of crime in the United States.

      There: I said it.

  • Alexandra1973

    I’d imagine an all-White city….

    • LexiconD1

      Where can one of those be found at, please?

      • Jason Lewis

        Vermont I think would have some.

        • ElComadreja

          Yes and they’re loaded with hypocritical liberals telling us to love blacks.

      • Standup Broad

        Mountain Home, Arkansas. Superb fishing, good deer and turkey hunting, lovely brick homes for 150k. Come for a visit!

        • Nancy

          Northern Utah…come for the skiing, stay for the abundance of white people!

          • Earl P. Holt III

            You can have the skiing, but the demographics sound great…!

          • Nancy

            We like to play the “Count the Black People” game whenever we visit. Basically, we fly into SLC, then drive the 30 min to Park City, spend the week skiing, and go home. But from the time we touch down in Salt Lake, we start the count. On average, it takes about a week to count 10 blacks…and that includes the SLC airport, twice! (You can play a similar game in Atlanta these days, only in reverse.)

          • Nancy

            Here’s a picture I took just as we were driving around the area. I snapped it out the passenger-side window, but it looks like this in every direction. (And notice the lack of heavy traffic on a weekday.)

          • Earl P. Holt III

            I am absolutely giddy fantasizing about such an experience: I was the last white guy on my block in St. Louis for many years — one block from where the last nigro got his just desserts following the Michael Brown incident in Ferguson — and even used the e-mail address for many years to give focus to my ordeal.

          • Nancy

            PLEASE come join us! We have no family there (certainly a “plus”, if you knew my immediate family), and I’d LOVE to see more RR’s move out that way!

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Happily married and living in Texas, but thanks just the same…

        • damnitallanyway

          I lived there for a while. My mom and dad retired down there. Low taxes, great people. Please take a moment to send good thoughts to my Dad, and ex-Cop, who is at Baxter Hospital for open heart surgery. A.T. Preder. Thanks!

          • Nancy

            We will pray for him right now.

          • Nancy

            We prayed last night…how is he doing today?

    • bilderbuster

      Maybe one in Iceland?

  • LHathaway

    And yet, according to victim surveys whites who commit crimes are more likely to be caught and apprehended.

    • Earl P. Holt III

      Most Whites are not “night-crawlers,” nor are they indigenous to areas where there is little or no cooperation with law enforcement: Which is the case with nigros, where 99% of them are involved in some sort of scam or other…

    • Laura Dilworth

      And shot by cops

  • Reynardine

    I imagine the black arrest rates in Japan and Iceland are pretty low.

    • TheCogitator

      But they are probably higher than those of the native population. Blacks are more criminally inclined wherever they live.

      • ghettovalley

        Japan has blacks? Honestly didn’t see that one coming. Blackanese?

        • bilderbuster

          America gives them passes to leave the military bases.

        • John Smith

          Just the children resulting from rapes by black service members.

          • Fortunately, there is no stigma against abortion there.

          • John Smith

            A small percentage are Catholic, IIRC.

        • ekwaykway

          Hear about the Japanese couple that had a black baby? They named it Sum Ting Wong.

    • DJRicin

      Very, very small sample size and selection bias, not to mention the fact that I’m sure it’s still higher.

    • The Japanese don’t take crap from criminals – including black criminals.

    • LexiconD1

      Except around the American bases. I hear blacks in the military like to rape Japanese women, a lot (sadly, it’s not just blacks, unfortunately, who do this.)

      • Reynardine

        Japanese women have the unfortunate curse of being very pretty and very feminine, which doesn’t work in our modern world.

        • Wrong, it doesn’t work around a feral subspecies that is prone to aggressive behavior and more suited to a jungle environment.

      • ElComadreja

        I’ll bet they do the majority of it.

  • Dave4088

    Afro-mericans cannot outrun their DNA and are simply wired to commit the crimes they’re often arrested and sometimes shot for committing (Trayvon, Michael Brown, et. al) regardless of their environment. But due to the Soviet style gag rule on race and racial differences nobody in the media or political establishment is permitted to say that lest they have their career destroyed.

    • From the time they are babies, black children-especially the males-are more aggressive and rambunctious than children of any other race. Next time you are in a store or at the mall, observe them, if you will. You will see what I mean, that is, if you haven’t already.

      • Nancy

        Puh-leeease. Just go visit a popular field-trip destination: a petting zoo, puppetry arts center, etc. On any given day (except Sat/Sun), you’ll see the place filled with groups of both white and black kids. The white kids act excited, but not overly-so: they’re just happy to be out of the classroom for the day. But the black kids? Hooting, hollering, running around, breaking things. At the Puppetry place, as soon as the house lights dim and the room darkens, they ALL scream and hoot: “OOOOOO OOOOO OOOO” like chimps. At the petting zoo, they’re tearing branches off the trees, hitting each other with them, and scaring the crap out of the animals.

        We call ahead before we visit anywhere during the week (including summers, when the little hooting groups of chimps are sent to daycare). If the place is expecting a number of black groups, we reschedule.

        • Alden

          I used to go to museums on weekdays I’d get there in time to see the school buses unload. White, Asian and Hispanic kids were all quiet and orderly. Blacks burst out of the buses hooting, hollering and wrestling . I remember one summer seeing a group of black day campers. It was at a big bus terminal that served 3 cities. The buses of the black day campers town are green. The kids saw one and just charged across 6 lanes of rush hour traffic. Even before they saw the bus the black day camp chaperones were yelling at the brats about staying on the sidewalk, waiting for the green light etc.
          But when their bus drove into sight they just charged. One thing I notice every summer, even though there is less than 10 percent black in my city every day camp chaperone I see in the parks or taking the kids around is black. One reason my kids had a baby sitter at home for summer vacation.

      • ekwaykway

        I’ve made that very observation myself. When my youngest son was in elementary school, the children were lined up in front of the building on a fire drill. The only ones that could not stand still were, you guessed it. I also observed a black male child in line at Mc Donalds. He never once stood still, not for half a second! I thought he had ants in his pants.

        • It was probably worms in his rectum. They’re not very clean folks.

          • ekwaykway

            Other than at gunpoint, how does one get them to take a shower?

  • Who Me?

    “Can You Find a City Where Blacks Aren’t Arrested More Often?”
    Can you find a city (or country?) where blacks don’t commit more crimes per capita than Whites?

    • Old Soldier

      Me, Teacher, Me, Me!!

      Uh, Oslo!
      …uh, no, Stockholm!
      …no, wait, Copenhagen!
      …umm,umm, Reykjavik!
      No, I’ve got it, Thule!

      • ElComadreja

        That will soon change as they import more and more black African Muslim scum.

    • ghettovalley

      Can you find a city or country where blacks aren’t basically retarded?

  • A Freespeechzone

    Even the FBI crime statistics validate that blacks commit more crime than any other race…

    Anyplace that has negroes as a percentage of population will experience a crime rate by their behavior at a higher rate than the negro population.

    Facts are stubborn things…….No Apologies.

    • damnitallanyway

      When population percentage gets past about 20% it’s all downhill from there.

  • De Doc

    Gee, I wonder why? Let me think…

  • Dave West

    There might be a few upper-class suburbs where black people make up 5% or less of the population. I’d be willing to bet that in Dover, MA, where the average income is $180,000 and the black population is 0.41% of the city; that there is little difference between the white and black arrest rates. Other than that and Steve’s example, there seems to be a “racist” pattern across the country where black people are arrested at higher rates; it doesn’t matter if one is in “redneck” Jackson, MS or in “liberal, hipster” Seattle. It seems as if wherever black people live they are more likely to commit more ………………… never mind, its the legacy of slavery!

    • WhiteVeinKratom

      It is never their fault,
      because there are white people there.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    The explanation is simple. Human institutions vary from one place to another, but genetics are universal. that’s why there’s no place where blacks aren’t arrested more often, just as there’s no place where blacks don’t commit more crimes.

  • TheCogitator

    Can you go to a city where men are not arrested more often than women? Does that prove that the police are sexist (or is it now genderist?), or does it mean that men commit crime more often than women? Anyone who can figure that out should be understand the con that Holder is trying to put over on us. But for some, it is an emotional issue and no amount of facts will dissuade them.

    • Laura Dilworth

      And youth. Young males are incarcerated at the highest rate

  • Doesn’t much matter anyway. “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” is so last year. “Anti-Semitic Whisper Campaign” is the new “Hands Up Don’t Shoot.”

  • dd121

    • LexiconD1

      Ever watch any of those ‘Lock Up’ shows on TV? I saw one recently in Alaska…chalk full of blacks. Surprisingly, Montana has a ton of blacks in their prison system too.

      • bilderbuster

        Injuns too.

        • John Smith

          Probably Hispanics as well.

          • They’re all attracted by the relatively high wages. When they get there, they quickly discover that there are few single women and that there is also very little to do there unless one likes outdoor activities. I thought about Alaska when I was still single, but was actually more interested in doing a year in Antarctica. I figured since I’d already been to prison, someplace like McMurdo would be a snap. One makes good money and there’s nothing to spend it on.

      • ElComadreja

        Yep. It’s amazing. They have black gang problems even in Alaska. It’s in the blood.

  • DaveMed

    There’s a logical explanation for these statistics… and then there’s the professional victim approach.

  • guest

    The astonishing overall group differences, if somewhat overlapping, between Blacks and
    Whites are probably most starkly revealed in public schools containing significant racial
    interaction. “Public” schools are skittish about video cameras for the very elemental reason that the omissions and mistakes of the school personnel inevitably would lead a perceptive
    taxpayer to wonder, if unvoiced, “Who in the hell is actually in charge there?” But leaving
    that matter aside, if video camera footage were just randomly put together, the TV dream
    world of Black White similarities would dissolve into dramatic revelations of how Black
    behavior is generally far less self controlled, far less sensible and intelligent, etc. Among
    other video revelations would be the extent to what is called “racism” is far more typical
    of Blacks against Whites than of Whites against Blacks.

  • DLRisVH

    If the american african stopped committing the majority of the crimes in this country, the american african wouldn’t be arrested more than other racial groups.

    • InAFreeCountry

      That makes too much sense, Mr. Van Hagar.

    What is the difference between bad luck and catastrophe?
    – Say, a car falls through the bridge, sinks in the lake with the driver inside. This is a catastrophe but not a bad luck.
    – Now suppose that a plane with Mr. Holder on board falls to the ground and smashes everybody to pieces. This is a bad luck, but not a catastrophe.

  • MooTieFighter

    I would expect not Holder. Thanks for pointing out an obvious fact. Blacks commit a disproportionate amount of crime.

  • JohnEngelman

    Crime Rates

    Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
    When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
    Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
    The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

    Interracial Crime

    Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
    Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
    Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
    Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

    – The Color of Crime

    • ghettovalley

      While reading your comment a thought occured to me. I wonder how many times more likely a white person is to be charged with a hate crime than a black person would be for committing an identical offense?

    • withcaution

      Only 25 to 30% of murders in the major black metropolitan areas result in a conviction. That means the ratio of black to white killers is probably more like 20 to 1. It also means that the black population of 50% in prison it’s probably much too low as well. Property crimes are vastly under reported in cities like Detroit because the citizens know it’s futile.

      • ABC

        That’s an interesting comment. I had never thought of that before. I’m sure white murderers are more likely to be caught and convicted.

      • Blackfish

    Jan. 15, 2015-Local news WAPT:


    “My son ain’t going to shoot no gun,” Burns said. “Now, I’m not saying that he wouldn’t rob nobody, but I know he won’t shoot no gun.”

    Burns said her son is well known in south Jackson.

    “Every police (officer) up in there knows him,” Burns said. “My son is known for house burglary. That’s all his charges when he was going to the detention center was house burglary.”

    • Not exactly a ball of brains is Mother Burns. He would rob people but never shoot “no gun.” Well, then, how his career as an armed robber supposed to be credible?

      • The statement is actually a double-negative, which means he would certainly shoot. I hope this helps.

  • slobotnavich

    Fact: Blacks commit crimes, particularly violent crimes, at many, many times the rate of whites and Asians. This is totally established fact, not conjecture. Police would be grossly negligent were they not to arrest blacks at a rate commensurate with their crime rate.

    • It turns out that a family like mine that stays quietly at home in the evenings, playing games, watching movies, reading or doing hobby work will not produce anything like the number of per-capita arrests as people who go out after dusk with the intention of abusing substances and looking for trouble.

      • Blackfish

        and carrying a pistol in their waistband!

      • slobotnavich

        Well, that may be true, but on the flip side, just what do you and your family do to contribute to police employment rates? If more people behaved like you and yours the unemployment rolls would swell further, the need for burglar alarms and other security systems would decline rapidly, and the resultant economic dislocations could be most unsettling.

        • I try my level best to keep the police very, very bored. I am usually successful in this endeavor.

      • Alden

        Ever heard of “putting out”? It’s an old, old black custom. The kids are put out in the morning and not allowed to come home until dinner. Then they are fed and put out again until bed time. Lots of black kids don’t have house keys so they can’t let themselves in after school. Many blacks don’t allow the kids to have friends in the house ever. Well I can see why because of their behavior. But from a very young age they are out on the streets roaming around because their moms and grandmas can’t stand to have them in the house. It’s also because black women have no concept of quiet play suitable for indoors. It’s either zonked out in front of the TV or rough housing, molesting each other or smashing things.

  • Curtius Simplus

    It is mind boggling that blacks being more criminal, is suppose to be a ‘white guilt’ affair. I just cannot put my mind around that concept. A does C so B ( who would rather not be around A ) should weep and pay the price? Excuse me … No!

  • Slayer88

    Sheboygan, MI. My brother was stationed up there for the Coast Guard and said they don’t send minorities up there because they don’t want to start trouble…

  • slobotnavich

    Someone should ask the arch-buffoon Eric Holder to name any major city in America where blacks don’t commit the great majority of all crime.

    • Evette Coutier

      Lmao. Arch-buffoon Eric Holder. Holder is not interested in facts. He’s about black domination over white society.

      • slobotnavich

        Talk about delusional pipe-dreams. Weŕe going to be dominated by a people who never even discovered the principle of the wheel, the bow and arrow, who never advanced beyond hunter-gatherers, had a written language……. There are blacks who fantasize that they once had highly advanced black African civilizations, doubtless destroyed when they discovered nuclear fission and blew themselves up without a trace.

        • Evette Coutier

          They are too stupid to realize just how stupid they are. What a great combination: stupid, power hungry, and violent. Rwanda here we come.

    • Blackfish

      I wonder what part of the DC area Holder lives in? I bet it’s not the part where the faces on the billboards are brown. . .

  • WR_the_realist

    Obviously black people face relentless discrimination in every city of America. The institutional racism is overwhelming and intolerable. So they should all go back to West Africa, where they can be free from the yoke of YT.

  • Light from the East

    A place where is no blacks, no blacks crime, no blacks arrested.

  • These stats don’t control for the average age of the black and non-black demographic in Ferguson. Ferguson is now 67% black. I suspect that since the city was 99% white in 1970, the remaining whites are now elderly folks who’s kids have grown up and moved away, while the blacks are younger arrivals with their own relatively young offspring.

    Age is a major factor in crime rates, and this faked “study” not only doesn’t factor age into their numbers, it doesn’t even address the issue. Let’s pick two hypothetical all-white areas. One is a small town main strip full of honkey-tonk bars and liquor stores. The other is a retirement home with a nearby golf course. Where would one expect the most per-capita arrests?

  • disqus_Xz3UA6obwj

    You’re much more apt to find open water on a lake in Alaska in January then you are finding a city where blacks aren’t arrested more often.

  • Hammerheart

    Crime is going to keep on increasing nation wide until our ‘leaders’ face the ugly truth. Me, personally… i’m betting on some sort of substantial collapse in infrastructure before that happens.

  • JustSayin

    Can you find me a city where blacks don’t commit the vast majority of crime?

    That’s my challenge to Holder.

  • They don’t really want to go to “skoo”, anyway.

  • xyz234

    I live in a small city in western Canada, VERY few blacks here, I see maybe 1 per week. Some other minorities, about 15% of the population, mostly Chinese or East Indian. Naturally, crime is low and the town is safe for everyone. Nobody except libtards misses the blacks.
