About

Despite Being Only 13% of the Population, also known as the Despite Making up 13 Percent of The Population Copypasta, is a copypasta used to satirize those who recite racial crime statistics online, often in the context of Ben Shapiro Destroys memes.

Origin

The exact origin of the original copypasta is unknown, but messages containing variations of the phrase "despite being only X percentage of the population" have been widely circulated within white supremacist online communities. On April 27th, 2015, a post on the community /r/ShitRedditSays[2] was submitted, which identified a copypasta containing a variation of the statistic as coming from the Neo-Nazi and white supremacist site Stormfront. The most popular variation is as follows, minor edits excluded:

Despite making up only 13% of the population, blacks make up 52% of crimes.
