One Less Myth

Black on Black Violence

If we really care about preventing Black deaths, we'd focus on stopping Black on Black violence!
This is an idea that has been popularized by racists as a diversion. Don't fall for it
90% of black homicide victims are killed by black people
Based on the same data, 83.5% of white homicides are committed by white people
It is also well understood that the majority of crime is tied to poor economic situations.
(People who have nice things don't tend to steal other people's nice things after all)
When you take into account economic situations, you find that poor white people commit crime at far higher rates than poor Black people do
Well they wouldn't be poor if they weren't so lazy
