A black suspect is being sought in Baltimore over a video released to instagram where a white male is hunted down and knocked unconscious with a brick by a black male in an unprovoked attack. The incident took place late last week and was unloaded to Instagram with the hashtag “#WhiteLivesDoNotMatter” & “#BlackLivesMatter”. The original post is now deleted.
Black man randomly attacking white man with a brick in Baltimore. The person who posted this said “white lives do not matter.” They’ve always randomly attacked whites like this, but now they’re more brazen as the media ignores and encourages these attackshttps://t.co/g15dl4lxx2 pic.twitter.com/7slLVP31dd

The now deleted original post by “Traysavage_” on instagram read: “Young man you got knocked tf out, bitch you bet not run, Unknot tried to kill yo”
Surprisingly, Instagram responded to reports of the shocking video by saying that “this video likely doesn’t go against our community guidelines”.
Hate Crime and Hate Groups
The national media often fails to mention that black Americans are vastly overrepresented among perpetrators of hate crimes—by 50 percent—according to recent Justice Department data from 2017; whites are underrepresented by 24 percent. It also doesn’t appear to matter which year we look at in regards to hate crimes, as the below results are fairly consistent.
Additionally, black Americans commit hate crimes at a rate that is three times higher than whites per 100,000 according to FBI crime data from 2016 and 2017. All of this data available, and yet the numerous congressional hearings on “White Nationalism” may have made you believe otherwise.
Black Americans are also more than twice as likely to be in a hate group than white Americans, according to the SPLC’s own data.
Data shows white Americans are far more often victims of interracial crime than black Americans. In 2018, The Bureau of Justice Statistics released their survey of criminal victimization, breaking down 593,598 interracial violence between blacks and whites. Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies, or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them, or less than 10 percent.
This information directly contradicts the Democratic claim of Trump-inspired white violence. In 2012-13, then President Obama’s DOJ recorded that black Americans committed 85 percent of all interracial victimizations between blacks and whites; white Americans only committed 15 percent.
Furthermore, despite making up only 13.4% of the American population, black Americans commit more than double the amount of interracial homicides on white Americans, who make up 60.4% of the American population.
