I think Heliumrat hit the nail on the head in his number 3 post actually. The gang equation. Considering blacks are involved in gangs at 3.5x the rate and add the the 6x more likely to commit violent crime and you have a balanced equation. 21/3.5=6 6/6=1. Dang. Even closer than I thought. Actually the NGC reports the the gang ratio as 35% to 11% black/white gang members respectively, so that would be 21/3.18=6.6 6.6/6=1.1. So there's a .1 difference we can attribute to racial discrimination.
