The media that says Hispanics and Arabs are White when they commit crimes are the same people sourced by "studies" to report that dog attacks are done by Pitbulls even if the breed involved is unknown.

Your "statistics" hit me with a big paywall when I tried to look into any of the sources or the actual studies. If you could screenshot the study behind the paywall and share I'd love to discus it civilly, though you'll have to promise not to threaten to murder me like two users already have ITT.

Where exactly are they sourcing this information from?

MSM regularly reports bites from unknown species and unrelated but cosmetically similar breeds as Pitbulls or Pitbull mixes regardless of the ancestry of the dog. Remember the Media reports Hispanic and mixed race criminals as "white", so pardon me if I have some reservations on believing them. Because of this Pitbulls have built a undeserved reputation for violence which results in even more dog bites being erroneously reported as Pitbull bites.

If it's from hospitals which seemed to be implied by what little I was allowed to read, then you have to question how effective doctors are at recognizing dog bites, they probably care more about treating the victim then carefully examining the bite to determine if it is a pitbull or another breed with a similar Jaw structure.

A pay wall? There are multiple studies cited on that page that give you access to the full paper. You can read them all yourself.
