FBI: Blacks Made up 55.9% of Known Murder Offenders in 2019

Steve Sailer, Unz Review, September 29, 2020

The FBI has released its national crime stats for 2019. Murder was down 0.2%.

While blacks made up 52.5% of known murder offenders from 1980-2008, their percentage continues to inch upwards, reaching 55.9% in 2019:

2019 Murder Offenders Total Known Black
or African
NonBlack Unknown
Total 16,245 11,493 6,425 5,068 4,752
% of Known Offenders 100.0% 55.9% 44.1%
% of Population 13.4% 86.6%
Black / Nonblack Ratio 8.2

That means blacks were 8.2 times per capita as likely as a nonblack to be a known murder offender in 2019. (Due to continuing problems with how government agencies collect crime statistics, I’ve given up on figuring out rates for normal categories like non-Hispanic whites. But the big story with murders is blacks, so blacks vs. nonblacks will do.)

In the Black Lives Matter era, murder is becoming a black problem as it slowly fades out for the rest of the populace.

My opinion is that this incredible disparity in murder rates offers us a clue to the question wracking America in 2020: why do the police hassle black men so much?

But nobody else ever mentions that blacks, at 13.4% of the population, make up now well over 50% of murder offenders. (In contrast, blacks wind up between 1/4th and 1/3rd of police killings.) So I guess the answer must be invisible Systemic Racism or something.

If you don’t believe my calculations, here’s a screenshot:
