The Myth of Black on Black Crime
Written by Danny P Ocean on August 13, 2014
This week I done fooled around and got my pocket square in a bunch. With the death of Michael Brown bringing tensions to St. Louis, I am hearing many people diverting the attention to “Black on Black” crime. As if we, or more importantly the people of Ferguson should not be upset because Blacks kill Blacks more than police kill Blacks. Word? That’s the rationale y’all done came up with?
See for some reason people feel that since there is not an uproar about Blacks killing Blacks people should sit tight about this latest episode of police “allegedly” going over board. But the fact of the matter is that Blacks kills Blacks just as much as Whites kill Whites, or Latinos kill Latinos. Crime is just as segregated as the neighborhoods we live in.
Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
