Are White Males the biggest terror threat to America?

Don Lemon anchors CNN Tonight. On 29 Oct. 2018, two days after the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre, Lemon went off on white males, declaring: "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban — you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white-guy ban. So what do we do about that?”

Lemon then referred to a Government Accountability Office report that says since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, right-wing extremists have killed 106 people in 62 different attacks in U.S., while Islamist extremists have killed 119 people in 23 different attacks. Note they start counting AFTER the 9/11 attacks when Muslim terrorists killed 2,977 Americans.

But are murders by Muslims and Right Wing extremists the only threat? Who commits the most murders? The answer is black males.

1. Murders not counted include the killing of a felon by a peace officer in the line of duty or the killing of a felon, during the commission of a felony, by a private citizen.

2. Includes American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, and Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.

3. There is no catagory for Hispanic. In the 2010 U.S. Census, more than half of Hispanics identified themselves as white and 37 percent responded “some other race.” Hispanic offenders are mixed between ‘white’ and ‘unknown.’ Also, not all agencies provide racial or ethnicity data.

Blacks are about 13 percent of the population.

From 1980 to 2013, 2,269 police officers were murdered. The racial breakdown of their murderers shows that 41 percent were black.

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, blacks committed 52 per cent of all homicides between 1980 and 2008. 

Since the black crime rate is so high, the greatest terror threat are black males. if all blacks were deported back to Africa, the US crime rate would drop by at least 35% but probably closer to 50%
