A study has found that African Americans are more likely than whites to die from a gunshot or other assault-related injury after arriving at a trauma center
Data from 137,618 black and white assault victims over the age of 15 treated at 100 trauma centers between 2005 and 2008 found that the overall death rate for blacks was higher than for whites, 8.9% compared to 5.1%. Blacks account for 76% of all trauma center deaths which probably has a lot to do with the high rate of violent crime in the African-American community.
