    According to the Atlantic: Citylab, “Black on Black Crime” is “used as a retort to—or a deflation tool for— ‘Black Lives Matter’ narratives aimed at shining a light on the police killings of African Americans.” The term implies something about blackness that makes intragroup crime, (occurring within a single group), more likely to occur among blacks as compared to other nationalities and races.

    According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, white Americans are responsible for 69.3 percent of crime, while also adding to the numbers of intra-racial crime. This shatters the myth that crime within black communities is a strange occurrence that does not happen anywhere else.

    9 Facts That Show White-on-White Crime Far Exceeds Black-on-Black Crime and How Media Outlets Conceal It

    Edward Wycoff Williams, an author, columnist and political analyst for MSNBC, conveyed a reality that many do not seem to know is real. Williams wrote for The Root: “It seems that the media in general and white American society in particular prefer to focus on crime perpetrated by African Americans because it serves as a way to absolve them from the violence, prejudice and institutionalized discrimination engendered for generations against blacks. It offers a buffer against responsibility, a way to shift blame and deflect cause and effect. But the truth, and numbers, tell a different story. At the heart of an increasingly violent society is not a subculture among Blacks, but the violence and criminality of many Americans, and whites in particular. No one seems to speak about this. Why? Because the snake oil was duly purchased and consumed. It is time for race-based pseudo-facts to be challenged and dismantled.”
