Black America's Real Problem Isn't White Racism
"In New York from January to June 2008, 83 percent of all gun assailants were black, according to witnesses and victims, though blacks were only 24 percent of the population. Blacks and Hispanics together accounted for 98 percent of all gun assailants. Forty-nine of every 50 muggings and murders in the Big Apple were the work of black or Hispanic criminals.
New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly confirms Mac Donald's facts. Blacks and Hispanics commit 96 percent of all crimes in the city, he says, but only 85 percent of the stop-and-frisks are of blacks and Hispanics."

Those are compelling statistics right there."An analysis of 'single offender victimization figures' from the FBI for 2007 finds blacks committed 433,934 crimes against whites, eight times the 55,685 whites committed against blacks. Interracial rape is almost exclusively black on white — with 14,000 assaults on white women by African Americans in 2007. Not one case of a white sexual assault on a black female was found in the FBI study."
Though blacks are outnumbered 5-to-1 in the population by whites, they commit eight times as many crimes against whites as the reverse. By those 2007 numbers, a black male was 40 times as likely to assault a white person as the reverse.
I live for others and I answer to God and sometimes to my wife too.
Personally I dont care if its a black, white, red, yellow, pink, green, or candy striped thug. A thug is a thug is a thug.
You dont have to believe a train is coming. Itll run over you anyway.
Black on black crime is more of a threat to the black community than a million George Zimmerman's.
Until the black community wakes up and realizes that the destruction of the family unit is their biggest problem, not white racism, they will still be where they are now 100 years from now. 70% of blacks are born out of wedlock, the abortion rate is 40% or higher (especially in NYC), and it's a right of passage for many young black males to have a "baby mama" as soon as possible.
Blacks who put in the hard work to get educated, speak English correctly and act like citizens are castigated by the black community and often referred to as "Uncle Toms" or "not really black".
Back in the day Martin Luther King, Clarence Mitchell and others expected blacks to behave like citizens and THEN if they were denied because of race, to make it an issue.
Nothing to see here...............move along.
As a point of clarification.
I think many people get racism confused with bigotry.
No doubt there are still some racists out there, but most people described as racists are actually racial bigots.
Regardless, neither is an admireable attitude.
As far as the statistics quoted in the original post are concerned I think a more logical explanation of the phenomenon would be the socio-economic status of those killing each other.
What is the frequency of minority on minority crime, violence and murder in the middle and upper income neighborhoods that consist primarily of minorities?
Conversely what is the frequency in low income white neighborhoods?

If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
It wouldn't surprise me.These are murders and not gun homicides which are far less.A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, reveals that approximately 8,000 — and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that 93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks.

when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.
The reality for the US is the majority of crime is one criminal committing a crime against another criminal, for violent crime it would be the vast majority.
In light of the ongoing civil disruptions, I wonder if the LA Korean shop owners have taken to the rooftops again.
