Blacks and white-collar crime
Charlie Rangel thinks it's odd that black politicians are disproportionately put in front of ethics panels. (He had Maxine Waters in mind as well as himself). Charlie is implying that he is an angel and white officials hate black people, but the fact is that blacks engage in white-collar crime at disproportionate rates. Even though they are only 13 percent of the U.S. population and are underrepresented in high status positions, the latest FBI data show that one-third of those arrested for embezzlement or fraud are black.
