Black-on-black crime, violence increase substantially

Associated Press

CINCINNATI

A newspaper analysis finds homicides in Cincinnati increasingly involve a black victim and a black assailant, a trend that has risen through the decade.

The figures have become so troublesome that city council plans a special session Monday night to discuss the topic, which previously has been limited to conversations about economic development or downtown safety.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Sunday that since 2005, 86 percent of homicides in which an arrest was made involved black-on-black violence.

The newspaper says that’s up from about 75 percent of homicide arrests from 2000 through 2004.

The analysis says eight of 10 homicide victims since 2000 have been black, and finds that all but one of the 66 homicide victims in 2011 was black.

Where are Al and Jessie and the NAACP when you need them?

Al, Jessie and NAACP only seem to activate when there are other colors involved.

"The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Sunday that since 2005, 86 percent of homicides in which an arrest was made involved black-on-black violence."

86%. That is simply amazing. And this is just ONE city, can you imagine Chicago, Detroit, etc?

And you got the racists, Al and Jessie, and the NAACP protesting over a WHITE HISPANIC killing a black. If they were proactive in dealing with this alarming rate of Black on Black homicides, then they should bring this to the attention of the masses of people.
Wonder what the homicides were of black on black murders since Martin was killed? And all the protesters with the racist idiots down in Florida condemning a WHITE HISPANIC man that hasn't even been to trail yet.
Wish they would just quit hating the WHITE race and put all there attention to what is a really serious problem. Black on Black homicides. But of course the racist idiots don't bring that up.
Not even going to mention the so-called black preachers.

86%. Amazing.

This isn't news . It's been known statistically for decades that blacks are much more likely to be the victims of black violence .

The main reason for this is blacks tend to live in concentrations in the poorest areas due to low incomes. When unemployment rises , as it has done since 2006 , these concentrations also rise. Blacks are also well overrepresented in the drug trade , where summary justice is dealt as a credit control technique & to discourage staff from talking to police .

We hear calls for blacks to control their communities , as if blacks were homogonous, when we know whites are diverse. yet all blacks are as entitled to seek the American dream as anyone else is .Both whites & blacks have adopted attitudes handed down from parents & it is time in nthe 21st century to break the cycle .

If blacks acted as though whites don't generalize , & expected to be treated fairly, maybe, soon enough , it would become a reality .

Maybe we middle aged & older whites could stop generalising & be a more accepting of black culture , & we would be comfortable hiring blacks or having them as neighbors ?

Maybe we would find there would be less crime ?

George Zimmerman is being prosecuted for defending himself against an attacker which under Florida law is a legal defensive move. Meanwhile, these black on black killings continue without one word from the black community leaders like Al of Jesse condemning them. The black culture sure is screwed up.

A White Hispanic is a product of "diversity."

""Maybe we middle aged & older whites could stop generalising & be a more accepting of black culture , & we would be comfortable hiring blacks or having them as neighbors ?""

We are accepting of the black culture, but in reality, it takes two. Blacks have every opportunity to finish school and attend college and enjoy a life without crime. They have a lot more opportunities then the normal John Doe. There are tons of Blacks that succeeded. Why are they different? Maybe because they wanted to succeed and become productive members of society. It's hard to hire someone when they don't dress properly, can't pass a drug test and don't want to work. The street,drug life is faster, more $$$, and in there world, more prestige, but the consequences are death.

It's up to the individual to become whatever they want to become. The sky is the limit. Only thing is, you have to want to succeed instead of making excuses.

"Can we please stay on topic? Zimmerman / Martin have no relevance to this article."

In a way it does, if the so-called Black leaders are so he@#-bent on prosecuting a WHITE HISPANIC, why are they not pro-active and putting a stop to all the black on black murders that happen every single day in every single city?? They have there priorities all wrong, wouldn't you agree? Shouldn't they be addressing this problem (a long time ago) then down in Florida condemning a man that hasn't even been to trail yet?
