BBC News is making a big deal about the high rate of child abuse deaths in America. Michael Petit, president of Every Child Matters, gives a long list of liberal explanations for the problem. For all his expertise, he somehow forgot to mention race. According to CDC data, the deaths of 0-4 years olds per 100,000 by race for the 1999-2007 period are as follows: Asians 1.6, non-Hispanic whites 2.5, Hispanics 3.2, American Indians 6.6, and blacks 8.3.
Petit, I'm sure, is privately aware of the racial differences, but he might not know about regional differences among non-Hispanic whites:
New England 1.3
S. Atlantic 2.5
West North Central 2.6
East North Central 2.8
East South Central 3.0
West South Central 3.1
Coastal whites are less violent.
