Soon as I read this headline I laughed. Blacks the victims....say it isn't so........if the blacks were the victims who were the perpetrators? I'm thinking Tibetan monks.

It's interesting that you say young black males are most often the victim, but you leave out that young black males are also more likely to be the shooter in those murders by gun.

Can there even be a more compelling argument for "conceal and carry" in out inner cities?

The gangbanger punks would be a lot less trigger happy if they thought they might encounter return fire.

yeahhhh...more shootouts is what the inner city needs..

All I know is its sad and you really get tired of hearing and reading about it. Separation and independance is what it will take. As long as we are in poverty and low self esteem mode we will never succeed. Knowledge is power.

Separation from what? Independence from whom?

I was wondering also ...since TOnly is keeping it secret can someone elaborate?

Plain and simple, Black people need to work amongst themselves to solve their issues. This is the 21st century, and the guilt ridden benevolent government solutions are no longer economically viable. Blaming racism is getting old. Asians and Hispanics are quickly passing Blacks who were born here. Step up or step off...

Seriously?

Yeah, seriously.

Who else is going to solve the 70%+ out of wedlock birth rate, the 68% single mother rate or the 47% high school graduation rate? Do you realize that a black child had a better chance of growing up in a 2 parent family in 1965 than today?

Blacks are ALWAYS the victims. Just ask them.
01:05 AM on 07/14/2013
The guilt that they(not all, but too many) receive by playing the victim role has allowed, or maybe I should say coerced, others to giving them(in the form of tax dollars, taken by the federal government, for votes) the welfare state they enjoy today.

"GUN VIOLENCE"..?? That's as idiotic as saying saying road fatalities due to "CAR VIOLENCE"...The extended Fourth of July holiday in Chicago saw 47 seperate shootings..! with 11 killed and DOZENS wounded..."poverty" ?? Get real !

Blacks are most often the victim as well as the perpetrator.

As blacks are most often the perps too! Sharpton and other race hustlers have no interest in this considering that fact.

Until our government is ready to seriously deal with poverty, the violence will continue.

Right, it the government's fault that blacks are shooting themselves. Please.

You obviously don't understand the governments role in society.

What we have in the inner cities are boys raised by mom's who are young, missing out on life and who stop nurturing our boys after they enter 1st grade.... We don't let them cry, we don't let them loose fights, we don't educate them on options. We don't want them to be moma boys, we don't want them to be gay. A single black woman raising boys is usually why a lot of these young boys stay in trouble, especially when she's a teen mom...and yes there are some good teen mom's out here, I just haven't met her yet.

unless there are millions of stars appearing in the east those baby mommas are not getting PG alone. until the black males step up and take responsibility for their actions this problem will not go away. yes the women have some responsibility but over all they are far more responsible than the men, if you can call them that.

Women HAVE ALL THE RESPONSIBILITY. They can choose to take bc. They decide to abort.

Here's a wild idea: DON'T HAVE SEX with loser men that you barely know, that have 5 kids by 5 different women and do not pay child support.

Just a thought.

We've been this route a million times and million times I will say.....waiting on a black man to come to the rescue to family woes of being single parents, is worse than watching paint dry underwater......I wouldn't hold my breath...nor should a single mom.

Here is a study that goes hand in hand with this article.

Would we all agree that the biggest group of beneficiaries of aggressive new laws, applied without exception, mandating minimum (5 year) prison terms for illegal possession of a firearm would be the black community, especially in the inner city?

If you are carrying an unregistered, unpermitted firearm - you go to jail for a long time. Get the violent mutts who shoot without remorse removed from society. Keep the law-abiding safe.

Don't do the crime if you cannot do the time.

" Would we all agree that the biggest group of beneficiaries of aggressive new laws, applied without exception, mandating minimum (5 year) prison terms for illegal possession of a firearm would be the black community, especially in the inner city? "

No the biggest beneficiaries is the private prison system that operates as a modern day slave institution. There are over 1 million blacks in the system today and yet the gun violence continues.

You would think that sentient human beings, knowing the prison figures you reference, would recognize that more crime by guns is not the answer. When in a hole, stop digging. Or don't. The jails are open for business.
