By The Numbers: Black on Black Violence and Murder

Yes. Anglo-on-Anglo crime is a reality. Also, Hispanic-on-Hispanic and Latino-on-Latino crimes are a reality. Demographics matter. I've heard it referred to as a "proximity crime." As such, in most instances of violent crime the person injured is a member of the same ethnic group as their attacker.

However, a look at the numbers tells the shocking truth about the unique problem of Black-on-Black violence. In 2015, FBI Uniformed Crime Statistics indicated that 2,380 Blacks were killed by other Blacks. During the same period, 2,574 Whites were killed by Whites. It's tempting to stop here and conclude quantitatively (by simple weight of numbers) that Black-on-Black isn't a problem since more Whites kill Whites than Blacks kill Blacks. The terrible truth is found in the qualitative analysis. Blacks make up only 13% of the population yet nearly 50% of all murder victims are Blacks killed by Blacks. It's not merely that Whites kill Whites and Blacks kill Blacks. It's that Blacks are killing Blacks at horrifyingly higher rates than are seen in other segments of society.  Source: FBI's 2015 Uniformed Crime Report

Politicians and their "main stream" media friends will lie. However, the numbers don't lie. The simple, and disturbing, fact is that young African-American men, year in and year out, commit a grossly disproportionate number of crimes including murder.

More African-Americans were killed by other African-Americans in a two year period than were lynched during a span of 86 years.

"According to FBI data, 4,906 black people murdered other blacks in 2010 and 2011. That is 1,460 more black Americans killed by other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968, according to the Tuskegee Institute."

Social justice warriors argue that Black-on-Black crime is a myth, a fallacy, or Alt-Right propaganda. A quick look at the actual numbers destroys that erroneous position entirely.

"In 2012, white males were 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders." 

In addition,

"DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, black people committed 52% of homicides." 

Chicago, IL is the home of the Nation of Islam, the headquarters of Jesse Jackson's RainbowPUSH Coalition, the birthplace of Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the "home" of President Barack Hussien Obama. Perversely, Chicago is one of the most lethal and deadly cities in the world for Americans of African origin.

"Chicago’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined. " "Chicago’s death toll from 2001November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321." 

Activists rant, rail, and riot over instances in which an American of African origin is killed during an altercation with police. Official government reports indicate that in virtually every instance the individual killed was armed refused repeated warnings and directives from police. That said, the number of African-Americans killed by police is A TINY FRACTION of the number of African-American men killed by other African-American men.

"University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime datafrom the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012."

Black on Black violence and murder has reached a crisis level in Baltimore.  Data shows that in 2015

"All but 22 of Baltimore's 211 homicide victims last year were black males." 

This means that young Black men

"...made up nearly 90 percent of all homicide victims last year. "

The former Mayor of Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, as reported by Baltimore-Sunissued an impassioned plea to the African-American community saying,

"Too many of us in the black community have become complacent about black-on-black crime,"

she said afterward.

"While many of us are willing to march and protest and become active in the face of police misconduct, many of us turn a blind eye when it's us killing us."

Former Mayor Rawlings-Blake implored

"...black men to do more to curtail the killing of African-Americans, ..."
