Correction, Jew: Blacks Are Indeed Far More Likely to Rape Than Whites
In the age of the Internet, Jews don’t always get to go unchallenged.
by David Sims
A LEFTIST BLOGGER named Philip N. Cohen (pictured) wrote an essay (which his fellow Jews made sure was widely copied) to pooh-pooh the idea that Black men commit interracial rape far more often than White men do. His key counterargument is that the sample size in the National Crime Victimization Survey, in the category of “black woman raped by white men,” is too small to be statistically reliable. The “confidence level” (as they say) is low.
However, instead of calling for more study of the subject to get more and better data, so that more reliable conclusions can be made, Cohen thinks that what evidence there is should be suppressed, lest some “racist” (or any unbiased and rational thinker) make hasty conclusions.
Here’s what I said to him as a first response:
“He restricts his facts, though. Racists don’t depend only on the NCVS. There are other sources of federal crime statistics, and one of them is the FBI’s Uniform Crime reports. The arrest data don’t suffer from the small sample size problems that the Table 42 in the NCVS does, yet it leads to the same conclusion that blacks are much more likely than whites to commit rape. The black-to-white per capita rate ratio for the perpetration of forcible rape was 6.227 in the United States in 1995, according to the FBI’s arrest data.”
Here is Cohen’s reply:
“That is the not the same conclusion, which was about interracial rape. And police reports are much less reliable as a source.”
Here’s my further comment:
“Your judgment here is incredibly poor, Philip. The police reports are much more reliable than any source that has too low of a sample size to be reliable. That means as long as the cops are arresting people for rape with good, if less than perfect, accuracy (i.e., a minority among those charged with the crime are innocent), the arrest data in the FBI’s UCR are better guides than the NCVS summary data are.
“And a greater rate of criminality among blacks is a longitudinal phenomenon: it occurs for most crimes. Nearly all of them, really, with a few exceptions such as driving under the influence (of alcohol) and for the abuse of a specific drug (methamphetamine). Leftists, such as yourself, have advanced the idea that whites have higher per capita rates for certain other crimes, such as child sexual molestation, that have turned out to be false when racists, such as myself, have made a close examination of the facts.
“You haven’t rebutted the racists, Philip. They’re usually right, or nearly so, when they speak of races as though they were forests rather than putting emphasis on some of the less typical trees that you might be able to find. One of your other commenters pointed out that you have, with regard to what the NCVS says about interracial rape, confused the absence of sufficient data to prove a point with a disproof of that point. No one in your position should make an error so simple as that. And likely none would, except in order to promote an idea as propaganda. The idea that you appear to be promoting is that racists don’t know what they’re talking about.
“On the contrary, it appears that they know this subject better than you do.”
