    Is this stat accurate? This has to slightly sensationalized. Please tell me there's a loophole in this somewhere.

    "According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports, in 2005 about 49% of murder victims were white, 49% were black and 3% were Asians, Pacific Islander, and Native Americans."

    "Hispanics were victims of overall violence at a rate higher than non-Hispanics."

    We have to also keep in mind, according to the standards which they evalute ones ethnicity, how many minorities are falling under the "Black" Bracket?

    This is true.

    First, they statistically divide US by "race". Secondly, they divide US by "ethnicity".

    Therefore WE, "Black" people are "racially" and "ethnically" divided.

    This results in US being systematically undercounted and "underrepresented".

    Peace!
