    while cruising the web I cam across this site which talks about race/crime/location.. thought it was rather interesting... according to:

    http://www.vdare.com/Sailer/050213_mapping.htm

    "Here is the black crime rate:

    As you can see, for blacks, many states reach the color scale's maximum of 3 percent of the population in jail. So they show up as solid purple.

    The state with the highest rate of black imprisonment, with 4.8 percent of the black population—male and female, young and old—behind bars, is Iowa. (Bet you didn't guess that.) It’s followed by Wisconsin, Rhode Island, Oklahoma, and Connecticut.

    The only two states with less than 1 percent of their black population imprisoned are Hawaii and North Dakota. I suspect that many of their blacks got there via the U.S. military and are thus pre-selected for discipline and intelligence.

    In the following map, ratios of more than 20 blacks imprisoned for every white (on a per capita basis) show up as bright red. Less than 3 blacks imprisoned per white shows as a bright green.

    Nationally, blacks are imprisoned on average 9.1 times as often as whites.

    If this high rate of black imprisonment was caused by anti-black conservatism, then the ratio of blacks to whites imprisoned should be highest in Republican strongholds like the Old South. But instead, it is lowest there of any major region.

    Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina are only about six times more likely to imprison blacks than whites—just two-thirds of the national average.

    In contrast, by far the greatest racial disparity was found in the most liberal spot on the map: the black-run District of Columbia, where Bush won only nine percent of the vote. Blacks in Washington D.C. are 56 times more likely than whites to wind up in the slammer."

    .. and continues in the same vein about whites & hispanics.. I just dont know what to make of the entire article... or its purpose.
