I kept wondering what the stats were on the English riots, since the media did not seem to be doing a very good job of telling me. I did a bit of figuring on my own, but it wasn’t easy.
The riots in London are heavily Black. Nevertheless, there are many Whites mixed in. There are also some South Asians involved.
In Birmingham, the riots are very heavily Black and Asian. The Asian component is quite large. However, there are some Whites mixed in.
In Liverpool, the riots are mixed Black and White. There are many more Whites rioting here.
In Manchester, rioters appear to be 100% White.
Looking through some photos of rioters from London and Birmingham on British newspaper page, I was able to identify the race of 150 rioters (it was hard to identify race of many rioters since they tended to cover themselves in clothing from head to toe). Of those, 84 were Black, 55 were White and 11 appeared to be Asian. With some, admittedly, race was hard to determine.
Try the experiment yourself here.
English Riots Race Number % % of Pop. Rioter % Black 84 56% 2% +2,200% White 55 36% 92% -61% Asian* 11 7% 4% +75% *Asians generally = South Asians (Indians, Pakistanis, etc.
As you can see, Blacks are overrepresented among rioters by 23X (2,200%) their rate in the population. Whites are underrepresented among rioters by 61% of their rate in the population. Asians overrepresented among rioters by 75% of their rate in the population. Blacks are overrrepresented relative to Whites among rioters by 56X, 5,500%. A White is only 2% as likely to be a rioter as a Black. Asians are 4.9X or 400% more likely to riot as a White.
Just under 2/3 of rioters are Black or Asian, and a bit over 1/3 of rioters are White.
Considering that only 56% of rioters are Black, it seems absurd to call these Black riots. They are not similar to the Black riots of the US in the 1960’s or even the Rodney King riots of 1992, when Blacks openly assaulted Whites. Nor are they similar to the Black flashmobs that attack Whites at random. These are multiethnic crowds of rioters, Blacks, Whites and Asians all rioting together. The Blacks are not attacking the Whites in these crowds. Instead, Blacks and Whites work together to attack police and loot stores.
The instances of Blacks randomly assaulting random Whites on the street, much played up by racist media, do not seem to be the norm. If the purpose of the riots was to attack Whites, why are the Black rioters not assaulting the White rioters who are rioting alongside them?
