My scanner has decided to stop working, so if anyone has a copy of tonight's West End Final issue of the London Evening Standard (Tonight being January 19 2008) and a functioning scanner, I would be grateful if they would scan the table on page 18 headed “Homicides in 2008 by Ethnicity and Age” and send a copy to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The table gives interesting figures, which reveal more than perhaps the Evening Standard meant them to. Apparently in 2008 there were 154 homicides in London of which 59 were white Europeans the remaining 95 were from other non white races. In 2007 the total of homicides were slightly higher, totalling 161 overall of which 63 were white Europeans and 98 were from non-white races.
As, the breakdown appears to relate to homicide victims, I assume that the Standard believes that their figures prove nothing more than that the majority of victims were non-white, however, they forget to take their own behaviour and that of the rest of the media into account when making that assumption.
As we all know, when a member of an ethnic minority is killed by a white European or even if white Europeans are suspected, this becomes front page news and is the subject of outraged debate on the TV and in the news papers for days on end. As, to my recollection. no such media frenzy has occurred in the last two years, we can be confident that if any of the non-white victims were killed by whites, they are a truly tiny minority, which the media have inexplicably omitted to tell us about. Whereas we know for a fact that some of the white victims were killed by non-whites, and in other cases, such as the murders of Robert Knox and Ben Kinsella, non-whites have been charged.
What the figures published in tonight's Evening Standard do demonstrate is that non-white Londoners, whilst still in the minority, are overwhelmingly more likely to commit murder than white Londoners are, a fact proved day after day by the convictions which we see in our courts.
Which shows the recent complaints by the Black Police Association that high numbers of black youths are being stopped and searched to be the dishonest cant that they are.
