SBC's Richard Land: A black man is "statistically more likely to do you harm than a white man."

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The head of the Southern Baptist Convention's public policy arm condemns the response of many black leaders to the Trayvon Martin case as "shameful." Some black pastors within the nation's largest Protestant denomination say Richard Land's comments are setting back an effort to broaden the faith's appeal beyond its traditional white, Southern base.

Land says he stands by his assertion that President Barack Obama "poured gasoline on the racialist fires" when he addressed Martin's slaying and that Obama, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton have used the case "to try to gin up the black vote for an African American president who is in deep, deep, deep trouble for re-election."

Land, who is white, said in an interview he has no regrets about his remarks. He said he understands why the case has touched a nerve among black leaders, but he also defended the idea that people are justified in seeing young black men as threatening: A black man is "statistically more likely to do you harm than a white man."

2. That is bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.

I have never been harmed by a Black American. But a community of anglo-americans taught me the absolute worst that society has to offer. They took my peace of mind, and stole what was never theirs to steal.

Check out my blog. I'm still waiting for justice. Or, at least, I'm hoping people will finally realize how exclusive white communities really operate. There's a very high corruption factor here because they think it's their right to always remain dominant.

28. Why isn't making accusations against the "Anglo American" community the same thing as the pastor?

 

Once you use the word "community" it's prejudicial.

That's the problem...people blame the other group for an undesirable circumstance.

If black people get to demand being considered as an individual why can't everyone else?

34. Because I'm talking about just the kind of communities where the pastor would come from.

Where do you think everybody ran to with this thing we call white flight? They didn't just run away from minorities who were diversifying the urban landscape. They ran to communities which could boast 90% Caucasian inhabitants. And in these Petri dishes of their own making, we can see exactly how they operate when they have no one to challenge them. They're not as pure as they would like you to think and they have left a trail of victims who have tales to tell.

36. Yes, it's team based.

Living here I've learned one truth. The tendency is to use the police statistics to support their prejudices. i.e. More blacks and hispanics in jail, therefore, blacks and hispanics have criminal genes. The only way to turn that around is to expose the kinds of crimes that they do daily, and get away with. That will level the playing field.

38. Are you kidding me?

It's because of those statistics that Scalia could dick around with the constitution. Statistics are everything. Police statistics showed high crime in black communities, (never mind how they came across those numbers in the beginning), so Scalia was able to slip in rulings that legalized stop and frisks in high crime zones, which coincided with black neighborhoods. Of course, more stop and frisks feeds the statistics even more.

If you were to be as overzealous in prosecuting breaches of fiduciary responsibility, white islands would turn into prison zones with a number of its residents wearing ankle bracelets. Believe me, you spend more out of your pocket due to the loss of common grounds where children can play for free, and infra-structure collapses caused by deals made between city officials and the builders of these communities. If you try to stop them, they will do the equivalent of a mugging--defaming you in front of your neighbors.

Anyone, by any color, can commit a mugging. But the kind of confidence scams you find in white islands are promoted by inner circles of primarily white residents.

52. There are a number of reasons one would want such statistics

It can make for more effective policing even absent racial profiling.

For example it can tell you that you might need more officers of a particular background in a given area. Generally speaking it helps to have Hispanic officers in largely Hispanic areas and so forth to help build trust and communication. This can help not only resolve crimes that were reported, but also it can help make victims feel more comfortable coming forward. This is especially important for crimes such as sexual assault or crimes against immigrants.

It can also be used for targeted crime prevention efforts via educational programs or community resources. People with college educations or a job that pays the bills are less likely to commit crime. Or if you find that a segment of the populace is particularly prone to being the victim of a crime, such as elderly people being the victim of scam artists, you can create educational materials to help prevent that sort of crime.

It can also be useful for instructing the community how effective the police are at working within their community. If for example they see that say 80% of arrests or traffic stops are of blacks, but the overall community is only 20% black, then there's something wrong.

67. That's the funny thing.

They're all based on police statistics which means you need to make a search by city, precinct to get to the root numbers. Different cities will show different results, obviously.

However, it really gets interesting when social scientist or activists dig in to find out how those numbers are derived. Here's an example. It's dated 2005 to show you how this issue has been dragging on infinitum:

ARE Blacks A Criminal Race? Surprising Statistics

Unfortunately, this false debate has obscured the deeper issue - whether or not Blacks contribute disproportionately to the crime rate. Media coverage, conviction rates and "common knowledge" (stereotypes) all suggest that Blacks commit crimes at a rate disproportionate to our numbers in society. Conservatives embrace this assumption, and call for tougher laws. Liberals embrace the same assumption, though squeamishly, and instead call for more social programs.

The better question for public debate is this: do the actual government statistics bear out the claim that Blacks contribute disproportionately to the crime rate? Or is this largely a stereotype, which is driven by the disproportionate rate of ARRESTS and CONVICTIONS of Black people? And does the over-focus on Black crime conceal an alarmingly high crime rate within the white population?

I will be writing more about this later, but I could not resist sharing with you some statistics pulled together by one of the best minds on the subject. Jason Zeidenberg works at the Justice Policy Institute. Here is his memo on the topic, addressing both illegal drug use and some violent crime. (I'm sure lots of people can produce contrary numbers. Nevertheless, I think this memo provides invaluable insight and a great point of departure for discussions.)

25. You would be hard pressed to use police statistics to prove your point

because the laws are established to focus on black crime.

That would all change overnight if we logged the number of victims of white collar crime, since a dozen people could be responsible for the loss of welfare of thousands.

if the issue is physical harm, then the statistics for serial killers should put white, again, at the top of the list.

The problem is that so much of the crime committed by anglos, is not investigated. They are a preferred class.

5. his claim is an example of a logical ecological fallacy.

 

You can't leap from the general trend to the specific. Hence, his claim is shit. He's just a racist.

It is akin to saying that Southern white men are twice as violent as Northern white men (statistically, they are), therefore Billy Bob from Mississippi is more likely to kill you as Biff from Vermont is.

Ministers should use the small window they have each week to talk about Jesus and his love for eveyone but you get the past down instructions to present the pointed hat tricks to their members.

62. Statistically, if you

 

encounter a man, with no other knowledge of the situation, is that man more likely to harm you if he is black versus white?

I don't know. I haven't seen the numbers. I have no idea if it is true. However, it very well could be. And it very well could be false. If it is true, then it is not hyperbole. If it is not, it still isn't hyperbole.

If we also incorporated the color of the victim, then there is more information on the situation. In some cases it is likely true. In other combinations, it is not.

64. ok

 

someone posted a link to the data earlier in the thread. You can take a look.

By the way, there are two separate interpretations of what Land said.

Suppose there are lions and dragons. A lion has a 20% chance of eating a person they meet while a dragon has a 100% chance of eating a person they meet. Unfortunately dragons do not exist while lions do.

1. You are more likely to be eaten by a lion than by a dragon. That's because while dragons are 100% deadly, they do not exist.
2. A dragon that you meet is more likely to eat you than a lion that you meet.

So does Land mean #1 or #2?

#1 looks at total number of people eaten (e.g. 100 people every year are eaten by lions while 0 people every year are eaten by dragons). Thus you are more likely to be eaten by a lion than by a dragon.

#2 looks at it from a per capita basis (i.e. stripping out the fact that dragons are much rarer than lions). So, if you do meet a dragon, he has a 100% chance of eating you.



So back to the data, you can break it down by gender, race, even age group (e.g. a young girl is less likely to murder you than a 20 - 60 year old man).

68. You are 100% correct on all counts

 

My guess is that Land would use interpretation #2, in which case the statement may be true (I haven't gone and checked the data).

Those wanting to prove him wrong (if the data supports his position) would likely use #1, which I would be absolutely shocked if it were true.

And yes, the data can be parsed out.

On edit: I just looked at the FBI data. It simply doesn't parse out the data to really be able to tell anything. Yes, according to the data, a black person is more likely to murder you than white (under #1 or #2), but not more than any other person. And once you throw gender in there, it tells less (all murders by women COULD be by white women).

So I still do not have the data to see if the statement is true under any interpretation.

51. I would think the stats regarding the victims would play in here

As in where the death penalty may be applied to blacks more often, but even more interesting, is applied less, when the victim is black.

The real statistic is for the victim - and like most things, a black person is most likely to be attacked by another black person and white/white. Racists always have the goal of proving the black person more "genetically" violent than the white person. The real racism shows up in that the penalty is harsher where the black person attacks the white person. Because the racist values the white person more. So the attacks on blacks by blacks that they are using to bolster their claim don't really count to them.

58. True, but irrelevent.

Trends by race
Blacks were disproportionately represented among homicide
victims and offenders
  • In 2008, the homicide victimization rate for blacks (19.6
    homicides per 100,000) was 6 times higher than the rate for
    whites (3.3 homicides per 100,000).
  • The victimization rate for blacks peaked in the early 1990s,
    reaching a high of 39.4 homicides per 100,000 in 1991 (figure 17).
  • After 1991, the victimization rate for blacks fell until 1999, when
    it stabilized near 20 homicides per 100,000.
  • In 2008, the off ending rate for blacks (24.7 off enders per
    100,000) was 7 times higher than the rate for whites (3.4
    offenders per 100,000) (figure 18).
  • The offending rate for blacks showed a similar pattern to the
    victimization rate, peaking in the early 1990s at a high of 51.1
    off enders per 100,000 in 1991.
  • After 1991, the offending rate for blacks declined until it reached
    24 per 100,000 in 2004. Th e rate has since fluctuated, increasing
    to 28.4 off enders per 100,000 in 2006 before falling again to 24.7
    off enders per 100,000 in 2008.

Hoodies are worn by tons of people. I wear them, my kid wears them... hell, my parents wear them.


And this statistical comment is nonsense... it's like saying you're going to win the state lottery because the odds are 8x better than the Powerball.

65. Hey, Rich: A Baptist preacher is statistically more likely to try to relieve you of your wallet!

And I'm a Baptist (sort of).
