"Even so, the differences between black and 'white' rates of interracial crime are enormous," according to The Century Foundation's monumental work, 'The Color of Crime.'
Between 2001 and 2003, for example, "There were an average of 15,400 black-on-white rapes every year during this period, 139,000 robberies, 489,000 assaults, and 12,762 sexual assaults. By contrast, there were only 900 “white”-on-black rapes every year, 7,600 robberies, 101,000 assaults, and 3,217 sexual assaults. Of all 768,879 violent interracial crimes involving blacks and whites, blacks committed 85 percent and 'whites' 15 percent."
Based on those statistics, black-on-white rapes occur at a rate of 42.19 per day. That's an average of 1.75 black-on-white rapes occurring every hour continuously, or about one every 34 minutes.

The notorious Tulsa riot of 1921 was sparked by a black-on-white rape. It resulted in much of the black community being set afire and black residents being routed.
There were multiple white-on-black riots across the nation during the The Red Summer of 1919. Riots were prompted by black crime, frequently black-on-white rape. The riots are routinely falsely blamed on unemployment frustrations at the conclusion of WWI as GIs returned home from the battlefield and had to compete for jobs.
The age of tolerance and white guilt had not yet been introduced to the American psyche prior to 1921.
Efforts were made to press the mind of white America towards tolerance of black-on-white rape.
For example, the story of Louis Till is virtually unknown to Americans. Till was a black soldier who was executed by the United States army after being convicted of rape and murder. However, Till's 14-year-old son, Emmett, was Trayvonized after he was allegedly murdered for 'flirting' with white women in 1955.
The national media successfully wove a false narrative of irrational white bigotry and subsequent black victims, thereby effectively reversing the perception of reality. To Kill A Mockingbird was published in 1960, five years after the younger Till's death. The book is a work of fiction that makes a mockery of reality by casting black rapists as innocent victims of white racism.
Meanwhile, the violence continues at the rate of one white woman raped by a black male in America about every 34 minutes.
