BLACK FEAR OF BLACK CRIME

Because of the reality that black males are statistically far likelier than any other demographic to engage in criminal activity,[1] law-abiding African Americans, like their white counterparts, are much more likely to feel threatened by unfamiliar black males than by unfamiliar white males. In some U.S. cities, for instance, black pizza deliverers have expressed great reluctance to make deliveries to certain black neighborhoods, including, in some cases, those in which they themselves live. Similarly, black cabbies are often afraid to pick up young black males. A black female commissioner in Washington, DC once warned her city's cab drivers, most of whom were also African American, against picking up “dangerous-looking” characters, by which she meant “[a] young black guy ... with shirttail hanging down longer than his coat, baggy pants, unlaced tennis shoes.” Fernando Mateo, a black Hispanic who serves as president of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, has likewise told his drivers to “profile your passengers” for their own protection. “The God's honest truth is that 99% of the people that are robbing, stealing, killing these guys are blacks and Hispanics,” says Mateo.

The conservative commentator E.W. Jackson has said, “As a black man, I am far more wary of the real black criminal than the imagined white racist.” Perhaps the most noteworthy of all quotes comes from Jesse Jackson, who, in a November 1993 moment of candor, remarked: “There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery—[and] then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”


NOTE:

[1] In 2010, black perpetrators were responsible for fully 80.2% of all violence against blacks, while white perpetrators accounted for just 8.9% of violence against blacks. With regard to the most serious of all crimes, homicide, the numbers have long been even more lopsided than that. The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims in the United States; more that 262,600 (94%) of those were killed by other blacks. George Mason University professor Walter E. Williams, who is an African American, points out that whereas 3,446 American blacks were lynched at the hands of whites between the years 1882 and 1968, today approximately 6,600 blacks in the U.S. are killed by other blacks each and every year.
