Had to make an account here just to laugh about this article. “Trump is factually correct about crime in big cities where the groups he was saying suffer from crime live, but here’s why he’s wrong.”
What a horrendous hack job. As someone who actually knows a bit about REAL racial crime rates (Spoilers: the ‘neo-nazi’ Trump re-tweeted had inaccurate statistics — but there’s a reason why no one’s correcting him by tweeting the REAL race crime statistics), I know exactly why you aren’t posting them.
If anyone is interested in what the REAL truth is:

Trump doesn’t need to paint a bleak picture for african americans. He just has to show them that despite being under 13% of the population, they’re committing a VERY out of proportion amount of crime, in addition to being responsible for the ultra-majority of all interracial violent crime between blacks and whites.
During the 2012/2013 period, blacks committed an average of 560,600 violent crimes against whites, whereas whites committed only 99,403 such crimes against blacks. This means blacks were the attackers in 84.9 percent of the violent crimes involving blacks and whites. This figure is consistent with reports from 2008, the last year DOJ released similar statistics.
At the end of the day Trump isn’t talking to white people that “work” for fancy liberal magazines when he mentions inner city crime rates. He’s talking to the black people that live there. When it comes down to it, who do you think they’re going to believe? You, or their lying eyes?
