once again you are misinterpeting my stance....I never "denied" that black on black crime doesn't happen, I even said that we need to address the issue....I simply stated that it is a "myth" to paint the picture that Black people kill each other more than any other group of people.....in actuality you are more likely to kill someone from the same racial background, no matter if you are Black, White, Brown Latino, etc....In my reality, I can.
Black on black crime "Myth" ?????!!!!??!?! You have GOT to be KIDDING ME!!!
Have you spent any time in an ER in....say.....New Orleans, Houston, NY, LA, Chicago, Atlanta, Memphis, Birmingham etc. etc. etc
Have you talked to any medical professionals who work in an ER???
I am interested in protecting the image of the Black man in one way...to change the reality that I see EVERY DAY! I am not interested in sweeping NOTHING under the rug.
Medical schools send doctors to "High volume" ER's such as New Orleans where they can see two to three Gun Shot Wounds (GSW) each DAY. We mostly hear about the fatalities, but black on black crime includes the THOUSANDS of shootings that do not result in fatalities.
