The FBI’s crime victimization surveys tell a very different story, one more in line with a normal person’s life experience.

In 2008, the most recent year for which such data seems to have been collected, FBI surveys show that, out of 520,161 interracial violent crimes, blacks committed 429,444 of them against whites, while whites committed 90,717 of them against blacks.

In other words, blacks commit more than 80 percent of all interracial violent crime. — Ann Coulter[1]

A society that looks at a 65 year old male Olympian and, with a straight face, declares him a her and ‘a new normal’ cannot have a conversation about mental health or evil because that society no longer distinguishes normal from crazy and evil from good. Our American society has a mental illness — overwhelming narcissism and delusion — and so cannot recognize what crazy or evil looks like. — Erick Erickson[2]

I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag. Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag. — Louis Farrakhan[3]

Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public. That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don’t, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior. — Barack Obama[4]

But with the official announcement Wednesday by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal that he’s running, the GOP has the most demographically diverse set of presidential contenders from either party in history. The GOP field includes an African-American, a woman, two Hispanics and now an Indian-American. It also has the youngest set of candidates in memory, including four who are still in their 40s. Three are the children of immigrants. — Susan Page[5]

Republicans should be asked: knowing then what you know now, would you have voted to confirm Chief Justice John Roberts? — Ben Shapiro[6]

But only the South is irredeemable in the Left’s view, and it has been so only since about 1994, when it went Republican. Which is to say, the Confederate flag is an emblem of regional distinctiveness disapproved of by 21st-century Democrats. Their reinvigorated concern is awfully nice: When the South actually was a segregationist backwater that African-Americans were fleeing by the million — when Democrats were running the show — they were ho-hum. Today the South is an economic powerhouse, dominated by Republicans, and attracting new African-American residents by the thousands. And so the Left and its creature, the Democratic party, insist that Southern identity as such must be anathematized. — Kevin Williamson[7]

[I]t is up to white people to rescue white people from our own worst selves, from the distorted monsters we have allowed ourselves to become. — Baynard Woods[8]
