The Nation

September 30, 1985

A report by the Bureau of Justice Statistics said that white residents in the nation's capital are almost twice as likely as blacks to be victims of violence, which contradicts the national trend in urban crime. The study focused on which people are victimized by certain crimes and compared crimes from May, 1982, to April, 1983, reported by people in the capital with those reported by residents of the Maryland and Virginia suburbs and other cities. Black suburban residents, it said, appeared to experience a higher rate of violent crimes than white suburban residents.
