New York — An NYPD report released yesterday reveals the spike in the city homicide rate last year was due to a surge in the number of Black murder victims.

While the number of white murder victims was down (dropped 27 percent) in 2010, the number of Blacks jumped 31 percent from 272 to 357, according to the “Murder in New York City: 2010” report.

Two-thirds of the murder victims in 2010 were Black despite only being 25 percent of the city’s population. A third of the people murdered in the city were black teens and young men between the ages of 15 and 29.
