Virginia: The Color of Crime (Rape, Robbery, Homicide)


According to the 2010 U.S. Census, Virginia is 72.8 percent White and 20 percent African-American. Hispanics are 7.2 percent of Virginia’s population, but are counted as White in Virginia crime statistics. Asians are 5 percent of Virginia’s population.

Whites are 66.3 percent of Virginia’s population. I’ve separated Whites and Hispanics in the pie chart above, but they are lumped together in the crime data.

In 2008, there were 1,745 forcible rapes in Virginia. Whites/Hispanics were 1,191 of the rape victims or 68.3 percent. Blacks were 511 of the rape victims or 29.3 percent. Asians were 19 of the rape victims or 1 percent.

Black women are overrepresented among total rape victims and White/Hispanic and Asian women are underrepresented. Someone in Virginia is raping black women at a disproportionate rate.

In 2008, there were 1,761 rape offenders in Virginia. 935 rape offenders were White/Hispanic or 53.1 percent. 767 were black or 43.6 percent. 18 were Asian or 1 percent.

Blacks are 20 percent of the population of Virginia, but 43.6 percent of the rapists. Whites/Hispanics are 72.8 percent of the population, but 53.1 percent of the rapists.

In 2008, there were 8,891 robberies in Virginia. Whites/Hispanics accounted for 4,726 robbery victims or 53.2 percent. Blacks were 3,662 of robbery victims or 41.2 percent. Asians were 282 of robbery victims or 3.1 percent.

Someone in Virginia is robbing the hell out of black people who are victimized at a level nearly double their percentage of the population. This is interesting because black people are more likely to be poor than other races yet are disproportionately victimized.

But who?

Source: Crime in Virginia, 2008

In 2008, there were 10,565 robbery offenders. Of those, 8,575 of them were black 0r 81.2 percent, 1,826 were White/Hispanic or 17.3 percent, and 31 or 0.3 percent were Asian.

Black women account for 4.8 percent of total black robbery offenders. 95.2 percent of black robbery offenders are black males.

Of those, black males over 36 are only 5 percent of black male robbery offenders. Thus, robbery not only has a class (poor) and a color (black) in Virginia, but it also has a gender (male) and an age (10 to 35) too.

Robbery has a life cycle (adolescence and young adulthood), a season (summer), and an IQ score (>90). If I had more detailed numbers, I suspect that I could prove that robbery has an appearance (thug) and a time of the month (1st of the month) as well.

In 2008, there were 369 homicide victims in Virginia. 160 of the victims were White/Hispanic or 43.4 percent. 198 were black or 53.7 percent. 6 were Asian or 1.6 percent.

As we can see, the burden of homicide in Virginia is having a disproportionate impact upon the black community. The same is true of robbery and rape victims.

In 2008, there were 477 homicide offenders in Virginia. There were 141 White/Hispanic homicide offenders or 29.6 percent. There were 306 black homicide offenders or 64 percent. There were 4 Asian offenders or 0.8 percent and 26 unknown offenders or 5.4 percent.

An outright majority of murderers in Virginia are black.  97 percent of black murderers are male. 19.7 percent of black murder victims are female.

What does poverty in Virginia look like? I’ve encountered repeated objections on liberal websites that suggest poverty can explain these numbers. Is there any truth to this theory?

Source: State Health Facts, Virginia

You can see right away from the raw numbers and the pie charts that “poverty” cannot possibly explain racial differences in violent crime statistics:

(1) Blacks are only 1 out of 4 poor people in Virginia. There are 381,900 poor blacks and 594,200 poor Whites in Virginia. There are 73,000 poor Hispanics and 80,400 poor people who are neither White, Hispanic, or African-American.

What jumps out immediately here is the 15 percent of the poor population of Virginia that is classified as “poor” but are not White, Hispanic, or African-American.

Logically, they must be Asian, American Indian, or multiracial, probably Asian considering that Asians are 5 percent of Virginia’s population. See above.

Is it not interesting that the 5 percent of Virginia’s population which is Asian which probably represents 15 percent of poor people in Virginia is committing 0.8 percent of the homicides, 0.3 percent of the robberies, and 1 percent of the rapes?

How is it that the 20 percent of Virginia which is black which is 26 percent of poor people in Virginia commits 64 percent of the homicides, 81.2 percent of the robberies, and 43.6 percent of the rapes in the Old Dominion?

If poverty explains crime, then why are 97 percent of black murderers black males? Why are 95 percent of the black men who commit robbery under the age of 35? Why are 99.5 percent of the black rapists male?

Poverty cannot explain these figures: women are just as poor as men and old people are poorer than many younger people. Violent crime among black men (and among all men generally) has a life cycle that is magically cured by the aging process.

Black men are 10 percent of the population of Virginia. Blacks under the age of 35 are 56 percent of the total black population. There are about 441,425 black males in Virginia under the age of 35 which means that black males under the age of 35 are 5.6 percent of the population of Virginia.

Conclusion: 5.6 percent of Virginia’s population which is African-American men under the age of 35, which is around 6 percent of poor people in Virginia, are committing around 43.6 percent of the rapes, 64 percent of the homicides, and 81.2 percent of all robberies in the Old Dominion.

Update: I’ve decided to have some further fun with these numbers.

In 2008, 1,955 people were arrested in Virginia for embezzlement: 988 Whites/Hispanics (50.5 percent), 944 African-Americans (48.3 percent), and 20 Asians and (1 percent).

Other Highlights:

In Virginia, black people are arrested for 36 percent of vandalism, 47 percent of drug/narcotics violations, 29 percent of forcible fondling, 49 percent of motor vehicle thefts, 70 percent of purse snatching, 36 percent of counterfeiting/forgery, 45.5 percent of shoplifting, 66 percent of extortion/blackmail, 44.4 percent of simple assaults, 50.1 percent of aggravated assaults, 52 percent of kidnapping, 49 percent of welfare fraud, 39 percent of statutory rape, 52.4 percent of bribery, 43 percent of burglaries, 56 percent of offenses against the family and 44 percent of total larceny.

Imagine what Virginia would look like without black people.

  1. Hispanics should not be hidden/blended w/whites-after all, if you broke out stats for rapes,murders,etc Hispanics would be at the top

  2. Im a nonprejudice white person that got on the internet to search for statistics to defend african americans but im said to say i havent been able to do that. sad but true

  3. Don’t miss these posts:







    South Carolina:

  4. How about we just talk about “Americans” and the cultural values they embrace. In this case, the “gangta” culture. Having spent a large portion of my life in mixed racial regions and areas of mixed socio-economic status, the culture that is embraced is what matters. I’ll strike up a conversation with anyone, but I’m a little more wary of those displaying gangster affiliation, regardless of their “race.”

  5. This ‘study’ seems to get around – I would say, “naturally, with the racism endemic to the US” – but here it’s refuted by an intelligent young man of 16, JLawFourFive:

    According to this new crime survey, Limpopo Province(the poorest of South African provinces) has the lowest crime rate in all of South Africa. Limpopo has more blacks as a proportion of its population than any other South African province-it is 97.3% black.

    Also interesting is the comparison of black american murder rates to those of other black nations.

    Black American murder rates are at a rate of 20 per 100,000 according to the Bureau of Justice.

    Is this trend common among other black populations? Let’s see.


    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 1998 was 5.12 per 100,000 population for Benin, 1.10 for Japan, and 6.3 for USA.


    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 1996 was 12.87 per 100,000 population for Botswana, 1.10 for Japan, and 5.61 for USA.


    In 1989, there were 836 murders reported to the police in Kenya, for a rate of 3.53 per 100,000 population. (The number of murders being reported has been dropping since 1980. Numbers for the previous years are as follows: 896 (1980); 878 (1981); 870 (1982); 860 (1983); and 851 (1988). This drop could be as a result of the following: a) There is capital punishment for murder; b) Private ownership of handguns and assault weapons is a felony offense; and c) Fear of revenge by the relatives of the victim has been the traditional method of controlling murder). Attempts are included in this figure.


    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in Uganda was 10.25 per 100,000 population for Uganda, 1.05 for Japan, and 5.61 for USA.


    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 2000 was 7.95 per 100,000 population for Tanzania, 1.10 for Japan, and 5.51 for USA.

    Antigua and Barbuda:

    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 1996 was 4.69 per 100,000 population for Antigua and Barbuda, 0.97 for Japan, and 7.41 for USA.


    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 2000 was 7.47 per 100,000 population for Barbados, 1.10 for Japan, and 5.51 for USA.


    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 1999 was 7.89 per 100,000 population for Dominica, 1.00 for Japan, and 4.55 for USA.

    Dominican Republic:

    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 1998 was 15.82 per 100,000 population for the Dominican Republic, 1.10 for Japan, and 5.51 for USA.


    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 1997 was 3.16 per 100,000 population for Grenada, 1.02 for Japan, and 6.8 for USA.

    Saint Kitts and Nevis:

    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 1999 was 12.00 per 100,000 population for Saint Kitts & Nevis, 1.00 for Japan, and 4.55 for USA.

    St. Vincent and the Grenadines:

    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 1995 was 10.00 per 100,000 population for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, 1.02 for Japan, and 8.22 for USA.

    Trinidad and Tobago:

    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 2001 was 14.46 per 100,000 population for Trinidad and Tobago, 1.10 for Japan, and 5.61 for USA.


    According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 2000 was 17.9 per 100,000 population for Guyana, 1.10 for Japan, and 5.51 for USA.

    As these statistics show, many other nations in the black world do in fact have lower rates of crime than do black Americans. The statement, “Blacks cause crime” is based primarily on perceptions based on high black american crime rates. However, because of that fact, the statement would be incorrect since much of the black world does indeed have far lower rates of crime-the theory put forth here simply does not account for this fact.

  6. The fact of the matter is this: Violent crime increases in direct proportion to testosterone.
    African-American males, on average, have more testosterone than white men, and white men have, on average, more testosterone than Orientals.
    This is most probably the main reason why AAs are overrepresented as violent crime offenders.
    White folks in the South, who have had, by far, the most experience with blacks, will tell you this: “You can take the nigger out of the jungle, but you can’t take the jungle out of the nigger.” AA behaviors tends to confirm the accuracy of this.

  7. It’s a shame that white people can’t be free-free to live without blacks and their crime,free to live with their own kind,in peace and harmony.Whites are tormented and forced to live with blacks when they don’t want to.Why? I believe one day it will be different because whites cannot continue to support and take crap from all these blacks.

  8. I am a martial arts/self defense instructor doing research for a police sponsored women’s self defense workshop here in Virginia. I am well traveled, well educated, and have been introduced to a multitude of of other races and cultures. I have never been “racist.” Having said all of that, I have come to the conclusion that there are very few blacks that have any worth whatsoever. Have you noticed that the blacks that are non-violent, non-gangsta, are the ones that have embraced white/American culture? They have acclimated themselves into our society. My research has indicated that the ghetto afro-centric gangster culture has undermined not only our country, but also their own lives. They know no life but that of violence and of entitlement. When 72% of all AA children are born out of wedlock and are raised by a single mother, when their rap culture embraces violence and law-breaking and multiple sex partners, it is no wonder that they are a violent race here in America. They regularly blame the white man for their ills; we are supposed to be ashamed of enslaving them. I am not apologetic-after all Europeans were enslaved by Rome. However WE quickly embraced their culture and eventually surpassed it. African blacks were enslaved because their society/culture, over the course of 10,000 years, had not advanced much past the invention of FIRE and sharpened sticks, while European culture was so far advanced that most Africans assumed that the slavers were gods. In other words, they were enslaved because they were INFERIOR. Same reason the northern European’s were enslaved/conquered by the more advanced Romans. But we, however, learned…advanced…and took over. Blacks have had all sorts of opportunities these last 50 years…and the majority have done nothing but destroy themselves in some sort of free-for-all blame game. I am not sure what the solution is, but now that I have found your page I will be returning often.

    As for the statistics out of Africa: They must be categorizing much of the “crime” as warfare…Africa is a truly violent country where life has little value…roving “gangs” of child soldiers regularly rape, murder, and brutalize common citizens…they use machetes to chop off arms, legs, and in the case of women, breasts. The majority of the “countries” on the continent are no more than loosely held warlord territories ruled by pirates, brigands, and despotic dictators. I would say send all of our AA’s back to the motherland, but they wouldn’t survive a week. Though AA males prey upon us whites here on a daily basis, their aggressive, violent posturing would not serve them well in any of the countries in Africa.
