White men.
So, why the focus on black crime?

Same as other types of crime where more are committed by whites than people of other colors combined. It's a fact that gets lost in the rhetoric of some who seek to blame others for all the ills of society. Basically it's scapegoating and has been something sickly inherit in American society for a long, long time. Whether it's scapegoating African Americans, the Irish, Italians, Jews, American natives, Japanese Americans (WWII), Mexican immigrants, Muslims, and all the rest.

For all the goodness in America there is this dark side that draws some in to say if it wasn't for "them" everything would be wonderful.

Every wave of immigration to the US has always been met with suspicion, with the exception of those escaping communism. They've been treated as job thieves as well as potential criminals and terrorists. It also seems to me that police rely more on stereotypes to determine who is more likely to resist arrest, and who is going to obey. Obviously they must think a black guy is a threat or will flee, while a white guy (even open carrying) is not.

On a similar note, how is it that white people can complain about black-on-black crime in Chicago and then say "they probably deserved it" when black people get killed by cops?
And what is their solution? More cops? Looser gun laws?
