The conservative columnist on Monday told Fox News host Sean Hannity that the country had a “demographic problem” because “white populations” in the U.S. and Belgium had the same low murder rate.
“As you know, I just got back from England,” Coulter explained. “On the gun crimes, we keep hearing how low they are in Europe and, ‘Oh, they’re so low and they have no guns.’ If you compare white populations, we have the same murder rate as Belgium.”
I heart thinly-veiled racism and xenophobia.

This isn't veiled at all. She might as well have snuck a "White Power" in there.
apparently nobody told her that, if you ask the Belgians, all of the crimes in Belgium are commmitted by asylum-seekers from north Africa.
it appears that we're still above average after all. sorry, Ann.
I think we should take some of these people, and send 'em up to Bear Mountain for a picnic.
Viggo would never utter his hate filled blather in a public forum where he could be identified
OK, I will try to answer this in no parts:
A) Ann Coulter is a fucking whack job. She loves attention, probably much like she likes Bill O'Reilly's dick in her ass.
B) HOWEVER, she does have a point. Look at how many murders/violent crimes are committed by non-whites in relation to whites, and you will see their is definitely a racial gap. Why do you think predominantly black cities like Detroit, Flint, Saginaw are in the top 10 of most dangerous cities in the entire country? Put two and two together.
"Indeed, statistics support a very different narrative than the one usually offered by “race hustlers,” as Pastor C.L. Bryant calls them, who routinely portray an America where members of the black community are selectively targeted and brutalized by white racists.
A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, reveals that approximately 8,000 — and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that 93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks. The analysis, supported by FBI records, finds that in 2005 alone, for example, African Americans accounted for 49% of all homicide victims in the US — again, almost exclusively at the hands of other African Americans.
To put these number in perspective, recall that over 6,400 U.S. service men and women have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the course of a decade-long war fought in those nations. During the Vietnam War, which lasted nearly 13 years, some 58,000 Americans were killed — nearly 13 percent of whom were African American."
Black-on-black crime is a sensitive subject in this increasingly polarized nation. While covered in academia and occasionally addressed by talking heads on television, some believe it rarely, if ever, receives the type and depth of attention it deserves. Instead, critics argue that this national tragedy is usually swept under the rug by...
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Careful Cosmo, facts and hard statistics are racist if pointed out.
(C) Black on black gun violence is a matter of fact, only when a bunch of rich white schoolkids are shot, do Democrats demand action.
Allow me to point out the obvious: Black American are still AMERICANS! So are Mexican Americans! So are Asian Americans!
Unless you're planning to send us all back, THIS IS STILL AN AMERICAN PROBLEM!
You can slice the pie any way you like (I like to blame cons for all of our problems), but we're all Americans.

well, she's barking up the right tree, the Belgians are the most racist mother****ers in all of Europe.
What is "hate-filled" about posting factual data?
Demonize a demographic, make sure they are not paid an equal amount for equal work, make them start with no property and no rights and keep it that way for over 100 years...make so they are always the desposable members of sociaty and see what happens...
It is only race because others have used race as a marker to create demons and then people of that race have hsd to struggle at bat when they start out with thress strikes...
Lurking on tRCMB since 1996
Actually, they seem to demand action only when a white person kills a black person.
To be fair, according to Rob Parker you aren't really black unless you're carrying an unregistered gun and committing crimes.
Just like Gun Control is ok when the Black Panther march with guns.
Agree with you. We are all Americans, and it is still an american problem....
But you have to admit this is interesting, to say the least.
It really indicates that if you want to impact the murder rates in this country, the laws created need to be focused on the segment that is really out of whack with the rest of the world.
The data indicates, and the original point is, that even though we have more guns than anyone, among slices of demographics the rates are no higher than anywhere else.
So where is it out of whack? With African Americans. Are the solutions to solve the probelm for AA's the same as you would impose on everyone? I don't really think so, and data would suggest otherwise, i.e. Chicago.
I love how politics to Republicans has just become a "Who can say the dumbest shit" competition!
They're never getting elected ever again if they carry on like this.
I love how politics has devolved out of the realm of commons sense and data.
Our govt, both sides, has become the most poorly managed institution I have ever seen.
We have become a govt of gut reactions to tragedies/crisis in order to push an agenda without any regard for actually solving problems.
That's what politics has always been.
That comes from your heart.
Question authority. Power to the people
You are correct. There are no problems of violence in the black community. Blacks do not
disproportionately commit any more crime than other groups. This is all a conspiracy of anti-black Eric Holder.
This is a myth and people are flocking to live in places like Detroit and Flint.
That is a strong intellectual argument and well thought out.
eh, I don't believe that, or maybe I am more aware of it now.....
I guess it used to feel different.... maybe some old timers can chime in.... just feels like things have eroded so fast it is ridiculous.....
Politics has devolved so much that whichever side has the highest number of stupid voters wins..... Politicians know this and all of them blatently lie and spew complete and total BS......
So given your premise, would you say the incidence of black on black crime has increased or decreased over the last 50 years since we started putting things right with massive government programs like LBJ's "Great Society"?
Recently in Cleveland, the NAACP swore in a new president. His comments included the following,
"Our youth know nothing about the NAACP," he said. "We have to educate them, and re-educate them. We have some young professionals who are Uncle Toms, and we made them that way. They have to be taught the history."
A so called community leader calling successful young professionals "Uncle Toms", and it wasn't even Rob Parker! Wonder why cities like Detroit and Cleveland are circling the drain?
About 300 people gathered Sunday afternoon at Greater Abyssinia Baptist Church in Cleveland to celebrate the installation of new officers of the Cleveland chapter of the NAACP. Newly elected president Rev. Hilton Smith laid out an ambitious agenda of education, economic development and membership growth.

Hmmm. 30 Republican Governors vs only 19 Democrats. 27 Republican controlled state legislatures vs. only 17 controlled by democrats. Seems to me the people prefer conservatism in their own back yard. Political movements tend to start local and build. If the democrats continue to carry on like they currently are, attacking religion, gun rights, privacy, forcing health care down our throats, and generally behaving like elitist ruling class tyrants it won't be long before it flips back to the right in a big way.
Yay for GOP gerrymandering.
Fact is more people voted dem for congress.
I'm worth a million in prizes.
