all i know is, he miss-quoted some statistic. he was remembering a comparison between two specific neighborhoods in the US; a very wealthy black neighborhood, and a very poor white one. The rich black neighborhood had a higher crime rate than the poor white one.
Jontron made the error of turning that into a blanket statement, >rich blacks commit more crime than poor whites.
I don't know if that's true or false, but it's not something you can just assume by looking at two neighborhoods. You'd need to do a broader survey of all American criminals by socioeconomic status.
He was speaking extemporaneously, about an issue which he hasn't studied, and fucked up with a sketchily remembered stat. Obviously, he should have avoided the subject, since he doesn't study it. But does accidentally expanding on a statistic make a person racist?
