Fact never to be spoken: British Americans probably have about the same murder rate as the UK, and African Americans have about the same murder rate as Africa, hitting 50 homicides per 100,000 in the nineties, whereas the overall US rate is 5, the white US rate is 2.5 to 3.5, and the European rate is 0.9 to 10. Hispanic rates are also high, as were Italian rates in the past.
Continue not speaking it lest you want to find out what the infraction rate for Irish-American moderators is, because it's baseless, bigoted bullshit that implies a direct correlation between race/ethnicity and violent behavior absent of circumstances.

I should also point out for anyone that thinks gturner has the least bit of credibility, he also has a tendency to pull completely made up statistics out of his ass or in this case fudge them to serve his needs, like those Wild West European Luxembourgers with their murder rate that's twice that of the US after a full gun ban, neither of which are true.

Luxembourg, for example, has a complete gun ban and a zero ownership rate, but twice the US murder rate...
