14. Slightly more are black than white...

http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/offenses/expanded_information/data/shrtable_03.html

For those murders where ethnicity is reported, it was 5,286 white people as the murderer to 5,890 black people, despite the U.S. being 79.8 percent white people and 12.8 percent black people. 245 were "other" and about 4,300 "unknown" but those are likely along a similar breakdown.

But nobody cares about non-white people getting murdered. The 1% would have to actually DO something, like ending the drug war, improving economic and academic opportunities and so on. I don't see ANY 1%ers like Bloomburg or the Koch brothers on the "other side" doing jack shit to help inner-city youth break the cycle of crime and poverty... that would actually take effort.
