So we are told not to racially profile, but it is OK in the Navy for GMT to profile white males as sexual predators!

Posted by mrfixit on November 20, 2010

Yep, I did not make this up, here is the quote:

“Most sexual assaults in the US are perpetrated by white males from 17 to 30 against younger women with whom they are acquainted using verbal threats and physical restraint.” Slide 9.

The slide is shown above, printed and scanned to get the required format for this post, but anyone who wants the full color version add a coment and include your e-mail I and I’ll send you a copy via e-mail.

This is part of the 2010 Navy General Military Training requirements. 

So, while we can’t profile actual terrorists and our PC is causing us to grope innocent travelers in airports, we can freely profile the majority race of the male population in the USA as the most likely sexual predators!

Now, can you imagine the outcry if one dared point out that perhaps “blacks” might be more likely to be criminals than “whites”?  Of course even the suggestion of this, even if backed up actual statistics, the suggestion would remain outrageous in our PC culture, and Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would be on your case, you’d be called a racist. Yes it would be even considered as using “hate” speech.

You see in reality it is pointless to mention race, and then follow it up with a statement that it could be any race, or even any gender that can be a perpetrator.  In reality perpetrators can be of ANY race, it is not proper or even helpful to say: “white male”, but they DID, why?

In case you did not get the details on PC out of control, here is my post on that saga:

So, let’s look at the statistics, first of all, if most perpetrators are male, and the majority of the population is “white” then obviously the majority of perpetrators might be “white” but that does NOTHING to tell you about probability.

Like this section from Wikipedia: “The U.S. Department of Justice compiles statistics on crime by race, but only between and among people categorized as black or white. The statistics for whites include hispanic and non hispanic whites combined. There were 194,270 white and 17,920 black victims of rape or sexual assault reported in 2006. Out of the 194,270 cases involving white victims, 50.6% had white offenders and 16.7% had black offenders”

Whoa, so the stats are only black and white, that clearly calls the profile into question, but there is more.  The opening of the article mentions the notorious unreliability of sexual assault statistics in general, so drawing a profile from unreliable data, well then what does that say? 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_reporting

We do have reliable data that ALL nineteen 9/11 hijackers had a common profile, but dare we ever mention any aspect of the profile, well that would be “profiling” and somehow that is wrong!  No, we can only profile based on unreliable statistics an call out the majority of the male population and profile them as the most likely perpetrators, even though be sheer numbers that ought to go without saying, but it has no bearing on PROBABILITY and does not account for percentage of TOTAL population.  Is it possible that when taken into account the overall breakdown of the population that races other than “white” might be of higher probability to be offenders?  No, dare we even consider the possibility, no, it is only OK to target the “white” male population, and there you have no danger of offending anyone!

So who is most likely to be in prison, and perhaps these numbers have many factors, but let assume that at some point there must be some crime involved that leads to prison, all other factors are less of a factor than the actual real crimes that actually happen!

Whoops, so it is not the majority race of the population that is the majority of the prison population?!  Could that tell us something?  Perhaps it has NOTHING to do with race at all; maybe it is economic conditions, perhaps the less wealthy, and the higher probability for criminal activity then the more likely to be in prison.  You see bringing race into it is dangerous, it really has no legitimate place in the “profiling” of the sexual predator, OR even a criminal. Propensity to commit crime knows NO race distinction.  ALL humans have the capacity, proper morality is what disciplines people to be civil and NOT commit crime.  That and perhaps the cycle of dependency and the welfare state that has destroyed many families, removing the fathers from the lives of many, and targeted in the urban, mostly minority race communities has MUCH more to do with it than racial identity, and who created the circumstances that led to that?  Yep, the liberal political elite (ironically mostly “white”) that get consistent political support from the cycle of dependence and destruction of the families created in this scheme. 

Stanford University study says:

Myth: Perpetrators of sexual assault come largely from certain races or backgrounds.
Reality: Men and women of all races, ethnicities, ages, sexual orientations, economic and social classes are represented among assailants.“

http://www.stanford.edu/group/svab/myths.shtml

So according to that report the Navy GMT training is spreading a myth!  Who knew, and we are left to wonder… Why?

Then there is this site which suggests race has NOTHING to do with offender characteristics – it is not even mentioned.

http://www.aardvarc.org/rape/about/whowhy.shtml

I finally found a direct statistic on race of perpetrators!  Here it is:

“52% of rapists are white. 

1997 Sex Offenses and Offenders Study. Bureau of Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice. 1997.”

http://www.lafasa.org/sexual-assault-statistics.html

OK, well…if “white” is about 80% or more of the male population, but only 52% of the sex offender population, what does that suggest?!  Doesn’t that at least suggest profiling by race is misleading and irrelevant?

      Thanks, I suspect that would be the Blaze, a great site!

      You’d likely find my post on inexplicable discrimination in the military interesting as well as the insanity with the DADT repeal training.
