Addressing Ferguson and Black on Black Crime
It is not fun to discuss the same issue twice. Yet this summer's news items are a direct repeat of last summer's: policing of blacks in America and the lack of interaction between races in the United States.
Please understand one thing. The only reason there is national awareness about Chicago's violence issue -and "black on black" crime in general- is because the media reported on it. The issue is getting coverage, and it is also getting addressed by black leaders. There is no large scale social media bombast because fewer people care about the social issues that promote crime within a specific community. Also, people will kill who they see. Americans are not about new friends, so people kill themselves. Attempting to make the death of Mike Brown and subsequent protests (and riots) in Ferguson about other societal ills is a deflection of a true problem in American society.
