It’s not American gun violence that is exceptional—it’s black and Hispanic gun violence

Ann Coulter has gotten disingenuous white liberals and blacks hyperventilating with indignation by arguing that the gun violence “epidemic” is mostly black and brown driven. She said it on Hannity’s show, which I don’t watch. I’m sure Hannity quickly changed the subject, as he usually does when race pops up.

She basically said that white America’s gun violence rate is about the same as Belgium and that it’s not a gun problem but a demographic one.

Reading some of the comments on the Web from the left, they can’t believe anyone would think such a thing. They are sure that white people commit more gun violence. Of course most of this is just righteous indignation. Even as deluded as white liberals are, they understand at some level that violence and blacks go hand in hand and that blacks are much more prone to violence than whites. Of course many of the comments are quite vile in regards to Coulter and what should be done to her for committing such thought crimes.

Via Jim’s blog:

Someone who wishes to remain anonymous has assembled data showing that American whites murder at about the same rate as whites in countries with strict gun control, American “Hispanics” murder at about the same rate as they do in their native countries, which generally have strict gun control, and that American blacks murder at about the same rate as blacks do world wide, mostly in countries with strict gun control.

The main factor by far in homicide rates is race.
