Over Represented is an extremely biased term used by the quota
industry, and it is the racial lobby's inverse of the related term "Under
By definition, overrepresentation only occurs when, for example, crime statistics show that acts of violence, car accidents, traffic violations, and other crimes are committed at a higher rate by protected minorities than by "whites".
The term overrepresentation is inherently racist and anti-white. It presumes that protected minorities do not actually commit certain reported offenses at a higher rate than whites, but rather that the crime statistics themselves are a Eurocentric, anti-minority plot to apprehend and convict protected minorities at a higher rate than whites.
For example, the federal government collects racial statistics regarding traffic violations. The feds routinely report that protected minorities are "overrepresented" in traffic violations. The feds never, ever ask "Do certain minorities actually commit more traffic offenses than whites?"
For another example, the federal government collects racial statistics regarding death-penalty convictions. If protected minorities are sentenced to death at a higher rate than whites, the federal government declares that minorities are "overrepresented" in death penalty cases. Once again, the feds never ask "Do certain minorities commit capital crimes (murder) at a higher rate than whites."
Racist Factoid: The federal government, and an increasing number of states, including Maryland, have declared that death penalty convictions must be reviewed for racial bias. If too many protected minorities are sentenced to the death penalty then the feds automatically declare that more whites -- and fewer minorities -- must be put to death. Believe it.
