From 1980 through 2008, blacks comprised 52.5% of all homicide offenders even though they only made up about 13% of the population of the United States

African Americans committed 56.9% of all homicides with a gun. While young black males have accounted for about 1% of the population from 1980 to 2008, by 2008, young black males made up about a quarter of all homicide offenders (27%). This means that young black males commit about 27 times more murders than their fair share of the population.
