Blacks were disproportionately likely to commit homicide and to be the victims. In 2008 the offending rate for blacks was seven times higher than for whites and the victimisation rate was six times higher.

As we found yesterday, 93 per cent of black victims were killed by blacks and 84 per cent of white victims were killed by whites.

Alternative statistics from Angara Peridot Diamond Band Ring Set in Yellow Gold Oaym5XiJm
are more up to date but include many crimes where the killer’s race is not recorded. These numbers tell a similar story.

In 2013, the FBI has black criminals carrying out 38 per cent of murders, compared to 31.1 per cent for whites. The offender’s race was “unknown” in 29.1 per cent of cases.

What about violent crime more generally? FBI arrest rates are one way into this. Over the last three years of data – 2011 to 2013 – 38.5 per cent of people arrested for murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault were black.

Clearly, these figures are problematic. We’re talking about arrests not convictions, and high black arrest rates could be taken as evidence that the police are racist.

But academics have noted that the proportion of black suspects arrested by the police tends to match closely the proportion of offenders identified as black by victims in the National Crime Victimization Survey.

This doesn’t support the idea that the police are unfairly discriminating against the black population when they make arrests.

So why are black offenders – and young black men in particular – over-represented in America’s crime statistics?

Judging from online comments, there is a wide spectrum of views on this, from unapologetic racism to militant refusal to blame the problem on anything but historic white racism.

Some criminologists think we could be simply confusing race for poverty or inequality: black people tend to offend more because they tend to be more disadvantaged, living in poorer urban areas with less access to public services, and so on.

If you control for deprivation, people of different races ought to be similarly predisposed to commit crime. Or that’s the theory, at least.

There is a lot of research in this area, but a lot of it is contradictory.

of violent crime in deprived neighbourhoods in Cleveland, Ohio, found that reductions in poverty led to reductions in the crime rate in exactly the same way in predominantly black and white areas, suggesting poverty, not race, is the biggest factor.

Other studies get different results.

All sociologists have suffered from the same basic problem: finding urban white communities that are as disadvantaged as the poorest black neighbourhoods, so that you can get a fair comparison.

Find out what top streaming services— including Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music— actually pay per play.

Thanks to streaming music services, record labels reported record-breaking revenue last year. In 2017, the ‘big three’ made an estimated Angara Freshwater Cultured Pearl Earrings with Diamond Swirl Frame qrTzFQV
. Universal Music Group alone made $4.5 million each day last year .

Despite increasing revenue from plays, how much do artists actually earn ?

In our report published last year, Digital Music News found that Napster had the highest payouts. After just 90,000 plays on the platform, artists would earn the US monthly minimum wage of $1,472. In contrast, Spotify and YouTube, arguably the largest streaming music services, had the worst payouts. The Swedish music platform had a per-stream rate of $0.0038. With over 1.1 billion users, artists would receive just $0.0006 per play on YouTube.

So how are things one year later?

This year, The Trichordist took a look at the most recent data from a major indie label. The label has a catalog of 200+ albums that generate over 200 million streams annually. It’s a representative sample, though it still excludes closed-door deals with major labels (including hefty advances and preferred advertising slots).

“Tec“Technology is not a silver bullet. It’s only as good as the teachers … using it as one more tool to help inspire, and teach, and work through problems.”

— President Barack Obama, November 19, 2014

The need

A fast-growing world of technologies, and the extraordinary quantity and reach of content on the Internet, have the potential to bring remarkable new possibilities to teaching and learning—helping teachers work smarter and making learning more engaging for students.

New technologies allow students to learn more, at their own pace and irrespective of geography, and to develop the knowledge and skills employers demand. Technology can provide teachers with opportunities to share best practices and personalize learning for students, and it allows parents to engage more deeply and immediately in their children's learning. Yet, despite the great potential of technology to increase access and opportunity, too often, school is the least connected part of a student's life. And while gaps by race and income in student access to technology are narrowing at a national level, disparities persist regarding internet speeds and the number and quality of computers or mobile devices in classrooms, especially those that serve high populations of minority and low-income students. Additionally, many teachers and principals are not getting the support that they need to use technology in ways that transform student learning.

A wide range of technological innovations can help teachers make schools into incubators of exploration and invention. Such innovations also can help educators to become collaborators in learning, seeking new knowledge while continuously acquiring new skills alongside their students.

All of that is possible when schools have appropriate technology, fast Internet connections, and supports that train educators to use new technologies and allow them to ensure the security and privacy of students' information.

All of that is possible when schools have appropriate technology, fast Internet connections, and supports that train educators to use new technologies and allow them to ensure the security and privacy of students' information.

Today, however, less than a third of educators say their school's Internet connection meets their teaching needs. Although 91 percent of teachers have access to computers in their classrooms, less than a quarter say they have the right level of technology. And teachers do not get enough training and support to integrate technology in their classrooms and lessons. President Obama has called for a bold, 5-year effort called ConnectED, with the goal of providing high-speed broadband and wireless to 99 percent of students and improving the skills of teachers—providing every educator in America with support and training to integrate technology into classroom lessons.

In 2010, the National Educational Technology Plan established a vision for how technology could provide students with access to engaging digital resources, opportunities to collaborate with peers and experts, and powerful tools to solve real problems as an integral part of their learning experience. The plan also aims to ensure that affordable devices are available to support students' digital learning, teachers are prepared to thrive in connected classrooms, and high-quality digital learning resources are available to teachers and students at any time and any place.

The United States is one of the safest places in the world to live. Our crime rate is very low when we control for race. According to the CDC murder at the hands of a young black male is the leading cause of death for young black males. White murder victims tend to be much older, in their late 40s.

It is NOT a race or poverty issue, it IS a mindset or cultural issue when anyone’s mind is raised on and fed the crap that all there problems are because of someone, that all bad things are because of someone else, that they cannot improve because of someone else. Guess who they are going to target…….. that someone else

This information and even comments are all wrong and mostly daft.

The is a suggestion that black pigmentation in ones skin has a relation to the propensity to commit crime. This is utter nonsense. The statics and demographics applied here need revision.

I believe the economic conditions that people are in, may have more play to observable behaviour. A better comparison to arrive at black/white crime rates must necessarily hold wealth at constant. Compare whites/blacks from the exact same locale.

My guess rate will be exactly the same since skin colour has no relation to disposition to commit crime.

Thank you.

I think that sadly. Race is a factor.. not because skin tone makes one better or worse. . But genealogy does matter. . Violence runs in the genes. Bad attitudes and criminal practices are handed down through family genes and family teachings. A large percentage of the black people in America descended from criminals that africa didn’t want. That is not the only factor. But its a big factor that everyone seems to overlook. Poverty is an issue.. also the “cool” factor among the black community. . America’s laws are considered “white laws” by the black community. . And if a black man wants to follow those laws, he is labeled an uncle tom by most of his peers and loses most his peer and even his family support. Effectively being black balled for not being a mindless robot that represents the hateful rebellious rap community.

Poverty breeds crime, but crime also breeds poverty. Crime drives all the business’s along with the jobs out of the community. Look at those Maryland riots, they robbed and looted so many stores and business’s, then burned them to the ground. Those business’s most likely employ black people. Vandalizing, looting and burning those stores and business’s, is not social justice, it’s crime! Now all those black people that worked there are unemployed. Biting the hand that feeds them! Not only that, on a day to day basis imagine being a store owner and having a gun shoved in your face or being mugged? Why would a store owner want to stay? Chances are that owner is going to pack up and leave! There goes the jobs, not to mention the food, goods and services. Think of every time a gang has a shootout in front of a school yard, who gets killed in the crossfire, a little black kid. When an elderly person gets mugged and beat up, it’s usually an elderly black citizen. The black leaders, clergy and parents have to speak up and speak out! Stay in school, don’t do drugs, don’t rob people, don’t get pregnant, get a job, etc. There are countless people that start out with nothing and try to make something of themselves. People have to take responsibility and stop blaming everybody else and stop acting like the victim!
