If “racism” upsets you, the Tuskegee Institute estimates that from 1882-1968, a total of 3,446 blacks were lynched in America. Kindly discount the 1,297 whites that were lynched during this same period, because no one cares about them.
If “misogyny” makes you cry, government stats suggest that roughly 1,640 women are murdered every year by their male partners. Again, don’t worry about the 700 or so men slain by chicks every year, because they clearly don’t count.
If “homophobia” makes you want to castrate all breeders and force them to gnaw on their procreative organs, the gay-as-sprig-of-holly-on-a-pink-lapel website towleroad.com claims there are, on average, around two dozen anti-gay homicides yearly, and that’s being generous.
So adding up ALL black lynching victims throughout American history, plus the average yearly female victims of “intimate partner” homicide, PLUS the total yearly average of anti-LGBTQPLDSTBQ murders, you get a grand total of 6,010 dead bodies.
True, that’s not as high a body count as the 7,000 or so blacks who get killed in America by other blacks every year, but it’s nothing to sniff at.
But if you really want to compare apples with apples, the US Department of Justice claims there are, on average, seven hate-crime homicides per year. This includes all sorts of “bias” crimes, but let’s be extra-generous again and say they were all anti-black murders, even though they clearly weren’t.
So if you add up yearly deaths attributed to anti-female domestic violence, anti-gay animus, and anti-black racial hatred, you get a grand total of 1,671 deaths yearly in the USA.
That’s still not even close to the 10,228 people killed by drunk drivers in 2010. Based on that stat, drunk drivers kill 612% more people than so-called “hate crimes” do every year.
