Newly released figures covering 2016 that show arrests in terms of race reveal that black people still are vastly overrepresented in every crime category. Black Americans make up 13% of the population but they account for 52% of the arrests for murders. The total arrests of black people reached 2,263,112 in 2016 compared to 5,858,330 arrests of white people, who make up around 73% of the population. [Critics of these statistics will claim that the reason for this is that white cops discriminate against black people and arrest them in cases where white criminals would be let go. However, police who patrol black communities usually work in teams with at least one black officer present – and most of the crimes are committed by black criminals against black victims.] -GEG

Newly released figures covering 2016 that break down arrests in terms of race illustrate how black people are still vastly overrepresented in virtually every crime category.

Black people are also overrepresented in virtually every other category, including robbery, rape, aggravated assault, motor vehicle theft and prostitution and weapons violation.
