Official confirmation of increase in assaults on whites

The U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics has found the first year-to-year increase in violence in the U.S. since 1993, an increase of 18 percent; the increase consists of mainly of assaults; and whites are listed first among the groups that are being victimized more. This sounds to me like statistical confirmation of the low-level black-on-white intifada in this country that every week’s headlines report.

WASHINGTON (AP)—The number of violent crimes rose by 18 percent in the United States last year while property crimes went up by 11 percent, the government reported Wednesday.

It was the first year-to-year increase for violent crime since 1993, marking the end of a long string of declines. Violent crime fell by 65 percent since 1993, from 16.8 million to 5.8 million last year.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics’ annual national crime victimization survey, the size of the percentage increases in both violent crime and property crime for last year was driven in large part by the historically low levels seen in 2010.

The increase in violent crime was the result of an upward swing in assaults, which rose 22 percent, from 4 million in 2010 to 5 million last year. But the incidence of rape, sexual assault and robbery remained largely unchanged, as did serious violent crime involving weapons or injury…

The increases in violent crime experienced by whites, Hispanics, younger people and men accounted for the majority of the increase in violent crime.
