High Non-White Homicide Rate

The US homicide rate for non-whites is very high by any comparison. In the US, the gun homicide rate for non-whites of 11.5 per 100,000 Americans means one of every 8,700 non-whites was murdered with a gun in the year of 2015.

Non-white Americans are six times more likely to be murdered by a gun than white Americans.

Non-white Americans are 72 times more likely to be murdered with a gun compared to all residents (white and non-white) of 28 other high-income countries. White Americans are 12 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than all races from 28 other comparable counties.
