slim said:Unfortunately Maxi in crime statistics race plays its part.
The majority of Gun crime and Drug dealing is carried out by members of the black Afrocaribean community.
The majority of crimes such as embezzlement , fraud and deception are carried out by white middle class professionals.
Until we can cross train our criminals we will be stuck with categorisation
Where I live most of the gun crime and drug dealing is done by white people, and I suspect you will find the same in many towns, the reality is gun, drug, mugging etc are the crimes of the under class, and what that underclass looks like will depend on the population mix in the area, if you have made the underclass in your area mainly AFro/Carribean then naturally they will hit the high spots in the typical underclass crimes.
Interestingly one sees far more people with an Indian Subcontinent background becoming involved in embezzlement etc, once again as people move into various socio ecconomic groups they adopt the local crimes. What crimes a person becomes involved in has I suspect much more to do with his/her socio economic group thatn race.
