Dr. John Lott talked with host Lars Larson about Obama’s claims after the Dallas mass public shooting which took the lives of five Dallas Police Officers. President Obama makes attacks on police by insinuating they are racist yet he completely mistakes the case across the country. Obama says that 30% of the population is black & hispanic and they make-up half of the people incarcerated.
Obama really needs to adjust for the rates that these groups are committing crimes. The President just assumes that the cause of this incarceration is racism. He says African Americans are arrested at twice the rate that whites are yet he doesn’t explain that the murder rate committed by blacks is about 6 times the rate of whites. The victims of these crimes are overwhelmingly other blacks as people tend to commit crimes amongst their own racial groups.
