Walter Williams On Black Homicide vs White Lynchings

The black economist Walter Williams is a remarkable man. Here`s a factoid from his recent column Cultural Deviancy, Not Guns, via LewRockwell.com:

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Though blacks are 13 percent of the nation`s population, they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims. Nationally, the black homicide victimization rate is six times that of whites, and in some cities, it`s 22 times that of whites…The magnitude of this tragedy can be seen in another light. According to a Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute study, between 1882 and 1968, 3,446 blacks were lynched at the hands of whites.

My emphasis.
