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. The analysis, supported by FBI records, finds that in 2005 alone, for example, African Americans accounted for 49% of all homicide victims in the US — again, almost exclusively at the hands of other African Americans.



Chicago

One city that has perennially come under fire for racially charged violence is Chicago. In just the span of three days alone — March 16th-19th of this year — 41 people, mostly African-American, were shot and killed in Chicago. Ten were killed in President Obama’s former neighborhood. Incredibly, these atrocities on our very own streets barely received a turn of the head by activists, nor did they receive any media coverage.

In response to President Obama’s decision to raise the profile of the Trayvon Martin case, T. Willard Fair, president of the Urban League of Greater Miami, recently told The Daily Caller that the “the outrage should be about us killing each other, about black-on-black crime.”

He asked rhetorically, “Wouldn’t you think to have 41 people shot [in Chicago] between Friday morning and Monday morning would be much more newsworthy and deserve much more outrage?”

Is it skin color or is it culture ??
There are people who scream racism at the top of their lungs and they can go on screaming all the want , but, the cold hard reality is, their screaming isn't going to change the facts. The greatest criminal threat to young black males in this country is other young black males .

I have never trusted statistics.....
But it would be interesting to see the difference in stats for all races.
So 49% of homicides where accountable (well quoted as "almost" exclusively!) to African Americans. Wonder where the other 51% lays....

It's not skin color or culture.
I'm sure without looking at the data that most of those homicides were gang related. Which means those crimes were committed because of money or turf issues.

This is not as shocking as you want to make it. Throughout the history of gangs in the US and elsewhere there is a high rate of homicides. The Mafia is an example of that, and they are mostly if not all White Italians.

I guess you both missed this part , huh ?
Data on Black-on-Black Crime

Oh and wednesday76 , it's not so much statistics as it is an FBI report.

Yes , futilevoice the numbers of black on black crimes are taken in context with the percentage of the population that black Americans are, it is damn shocking. And it is culture much more then skin color.

Why is this in racism. A black killing a black is not racist. In fact the only thing racist about it is you decided to put it in the racist section. You are saying that if there is a crime it is alway race related, this is fine example Political COrrectness.

So, which forum would you have posted it in ,if it had been you posting it ?
It isn't news or a current event, it isn't political, it certainly is not random , nor educational ,,,
BTW, after you have been here a while longer, you will get to know those who have a real inclination for Politically correctness and those who don't .

Probably society and lifestyles as it is focussed on American Lifestyle. But there is not hate crime involved so it isnt racist.

Actually it is not shocking. If you read the article, which Iam sure you did, you would see:

"And the reality is, you almost always commit murder within your racial classifications. So when we’ve got a young black man up in the coroners office, it’s almost always a result of another young black man shooting him.”

So you see Whites and Hispanics kill each other too within their racial classifications.

The 'shocking' part of the deal about 'black on black crimes' is not that it happens but that the numbers or percentages are so high in comparison to the % of black Americans compared to the total population of the nation . Any way that's what I under stood from reading the article.

interestingly , there is a scene in one of spike lee's movies , where a man puts forward the belief that black areas have more than their fair share of gun shops because the people in charge want to make it easier for blacks to kill each other ....i think the actor is lawrence fishbourne ..the movie i don't know .

I don't have television and haven't been inside a theater since around 1981 and Hollywood is just a huge waste of good gardening space IMO . So, I will just take your word for that bit of info .
