A small study from the University of Chicago and the University of California found evidence that the number one killer of white people in America was black people.

White people shot to death by black people were five times more likely to be male than female.

Researchers estimated there were 681,000 black female homicides in 2010.

The study, conducted by sociologists Charles Murray and Stephen Walt and published in the Journal of Black Studies (the largest black studies journal in the world), also found that black men killed white women more than white men killed black women, while black men killed black women more often than black men killed African American men.

The findings support the theory that, in today’s America, black men are the “primary” killers of white women and that white women are “primary victims of male homicide.” The study, conducted on two continents, found that even though black mothers kill more children than white mothers, it is black fathers who are most likely to kill their daughters.

It’s worth noting that this study was on murders, and not killings that took place at gunpoint or in self defence. It’s also notable because this kind of data has only been reported after it was used by a handful of anti-gun legislators like Senator Joe Lieberman.

Here is an excerpt from the study that the University of Chicago has given me to share with you:

We find that the rate of black women’s murder has actually jumped since the 1980s, coincident with increased efforts by anti-gun political crusaders to expand the federal gun-control laws and to reduce gun violence… Black homicide has increased from 3.7 murders per 100,000 blacks in 1980–81 to 7.3 murders per 100,000 blacks in 2010. This rise is attributed in large part to the rise in murders committed by black female assailants, which
