Now, here’s the thing.
Simone Frey

“Now, here’s the thing. I’m not at risk for being killed by the “big bad white man”

Yes. We all know that.

“As a woman, I’m more at risk of being killed by intimate partner violence, which would be my husband.”

Yes we all also know that the first suspect in any murder is the spouse. We also know that according to crime statistics in the USA as of 2012, the rates of spousal homicide proportionately are about 50 / 50 in terms of gender; and it has absolutely nothing to do with race. The only real difference is that women are more likely to engage a third party to kill their husbands; whereas men are more likely to do it themselves. Therefore under the law, women are more likely to be convicted of “conspiracy” to murder and men are more likely to face murder in the first degree charges. It is the same everywhere.

“I’m also likely to be target by a member of my own race in a random act of violence, as most crime is intra racial.”

Yes: We all know that too. The question is — why are you so determined to blame other people just because you don’t like the colour of their skin?
