The BLM Effect: Homicides Up 20% Nationally from 2014 to 2016, by Steve Sailer.
It seems pretty obvious that the murder bulge has been concentrated among blacks killing blacks, especially in cities where Black Lives Matter was active and successful at discouraging cops. In both Baltimore and Chicago, for example, the increase in murders started the same week as BLM protests.
There were 14,164 homicides in 2014 (down slightly from 14,319 in 2013).
2014 was the year of Ferguson and the emergence of BLM, launching the contemporary era of homicide. In 2015 there were 15,583 killings. In 2016, 17,250.
That’s about 4,450 incremental homicides over the 2014 base rate during the last two years of the Obama Administration. That’s 1,000 more dead bodies than all the blacks lynched in U.S. history (according to the NAACP).
