why can't there be national statistics more so instead of racial statistics?

Why does there have to be racial statistics on how much of one race does this (like crime), or levels of education, etc? If anything, racial statistics allow many to use it as an excuse to judge an entire group of people or hold something against one group. They should do away with race on job applications too. I think there should be statistics on just people in general in this country and not on different races. By the way, bad experiences with one group of people is never an excuse to write off an entire race don't you think?

The statistics are collected so that they can be used to measure whether drives for racial (and sexual) equality have been sucessful. There are statistics on the nation as a whole e.g. X % of people unemployed, but they don't make as much interesting news fodder... More

They do include the national statistics. If it isn't broken down in any way there is no method to determine what is causing the problems, you just have a bunch of worthless data.
