In 2023, 90% of Known Homicide Suspects in St. Louis Are Black

Paul Kersey, Unz Review, January 23, 2024

Out of 318,000 people,St. Louis is 44 percent black/45 percent white (as of 2020 US Census).

Our good friends at the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department not only put out an annual report on crime broken down by race, (found here) but a weekly analysis of the yearly crime rate.

Also, conveniently, breaking out homicides by both the race of victims and suspects.

And for the year 2023, three 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 2023, 115 of 128 known homicide suspects were black, or 90% of known homicide suspects in the 43% white city of St. Louis were black.

Black Lives Matter, though. Right?

For all of 2023 in St. Louis, 61 of the homicides have no suspect.

  • There were 21 white victims and only 13 white suspects (meaning the majority of whites were victims of interracial violence)
  • 84 percent of the victims were black (134 of 158 victims)

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 city’s in not just the USA, but the entire world in this black-free population hypothetical (when its population currently is St. Louis is 44 percent black/ 45 percent white?


Conversely, if the city was all-black, how many homicides would St. Louis boast yearly?
