Your just as likely to be robbed by a white drug addict as a drug addict, true or false?

Apparently 87% of the population has a poor understanding of basic statistics.

Of course your chance of being robbed by a white drug addict is lower than by any drug attic of any race.

Simply...

Chance of being robbed by a drug addict = chance of being robbed by a white addict + chance of being robbed by a non-white addict.

Therefore chance of being robbed by a white addict < chance of being robbed by an addict, unless a chance of being robbed by a non-white addict is zero. (Which it is not)

Simple

Probably more likely considering that the majority of the population is white. It’s simple sampling.
