Black Community: Why Is
Urban Gun Violence Ignored?

Breitbart Big Government, by Dr. Susan Berry

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/19/2012 2:01:00 PM

While the state of Connecticut, and the nation at large, remains in shock over the school shootings in Newtown, some members of the black community in New Haven are frustrated at the outpouring of national attention to this incident when urban areas of the United States suffer with serious gun violence continuously. Some of these New Haven residents observed that, with hundreds of media outlets focused on President Obama’s visit to Connecticut on Sunday for an interfaith prayer service, this level of intense attention would not have been poured on a similar incident in an inner city area.

Because stopping urban violence would require a change in culture, lifestyles, attitudes, etc...

Urban gun violence is minority on minority, so it becomes something that should not be mentioned lest we offend an African American shooter. Or Jesse Jackson, Shiela Jackson Lee, or whatever Sharpton.

Why is urban gun violence ignored? Don´t ask stupid questions.

Absolute;y #1. The hard reality is that inner city crime is mostly black on black. The blacks do not want to prosecute blacks, so nothing is done. The most effective way to stop gun violence is to arrest and prosecute those who commit the violence. Blacks flat out reject that so the violence continues. They are ignorant to the nature of the issue.

Also, when people complain about the high violence rate in the US, guess what? It´s due to Black and Hispanic young men.

Urban gun violence might be "black on black", but that black mother whose five-year-old was shot through a window is just as grief stricken as a Newtown mother whose child was mowed down by a white kid. Too many of us brush off a discussion of urban violence by assuming it only involves black thugs and street druggies.

It´s not ignored. It´s the main reason so many of us chose to be armed. We are VERY aware of it!!!

Let´s face it, if a white person tries to address this issue in any way, they are immediately called a racist.

If a black person tries to seriously address this issue, he is called an ´´Uncle Tom´´ (isn´t that right, Bill Cosby???)

And the so-called ´´leaders´´ of the black communities, like Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton, refuse to put the blame solely on the people doing most of the gun crimes in urban areas -- young black males.

Far too many single-mom homes, total disrespect for authority, total disrespect for classic education, a pervasive culture of violence -- egged on by the popularity of rap ´´music´´, total loss of work ethics in whole communities, no value of human life, far too much drug and alcohol abuse, etc, etc, etc, in almost all urban black cities.

Oops, I guess I was just a racist to point that out. Bummer...

The most effective solution would be an intensive and focused police presence in the neighborhoods..There would need to be a massive sweep through the affected areas to arrest the killers and to shut down all illegal operations. This would be done with swat teams and a precise implementation of a plan to uproot the evil pressence...The problem is that it would be called racist and too militaristic. The reality is that it would work and families could live safely with the hope that their children could thrive and live to a ripe old age.

I already commented on the post above...

I have wondered for quite a while why Barak has NEVER returned to his own neighborhood, not metaphorically speaking, his actual own neighborhood, to meet with grieving parents or attend any funeral of any of the dozens of innocent children in Chicago.

Newtown was a photo op...unlike G.W. Bush who met with grieving familes in private.

#9 made an interesting point. However, the people pulling those triggers, pretty much every day - several times a day -- are black thugs and druggies. Pretty much 99.99999% of the time that is true if we are talking ´´urban crime´´.

If you live in inner-city Detroit or Chicago, you sadly know that your child has a good chance to be shot today. Usually they aren´t going to be the intended target, but bullets don´t discriminate once they fly out of that gun. If it´s not your kid today, it´s somebody else´s kid that you know. Hopefully they will survive those shots, but not always. Sadly, that is the reality of life in ´´urban´´ America.

If you live in upper middle class suburbia -- like where this recent mass murder happened -- a kid being shot is something that statistically never happens. You never even think of that as a possibility when you put your kid on that school bus every morning.

Every day, countless men rape women. They normally don´t even make the local news because they are not rare occurrences. Definitely a sad reality of modern society.

But let a female teacher gets caught having sex with a 15 year old student -- otherwise known as statutory rape -- and it´s news all over the country.

That is just reality. That urban mom may mourn her child every bit as much as that mom in CT, but she had to know it was a possibility every day. That parent in CT never even imagined such a thing happening in their most horrible nightmares.

A lot of you are close, but the real reason that Urban Gun Violence is ignored is in the roots of the Democrat party........they have ALWAYS advocated the enslavement, and slaughter of African Americans.

Bull Connor, the Civil War, Jim Crow, The KKK.......from the very very beginning of the Party, they have promoted racist policies.
That the urbanites are killing each other is the cherry on top of the sundae for them.
They are only made happier by the fact that the self same Urbanites are defending Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger´s original plan for the dissolution of the Black Man in America.

Because black popular culture PROMOTES it.

Because "authentic" black men are illiterate and violent.

Because only black "sell-outs" have college degrees and the capacity to live peacefully and lawfully within our society.

Bill Cosby made the mistake of pointing out the multitudinous failures of modern Black America....

....and was immediately and viciously attacked (by Black America) for his efforts.

Don´t tell us that urban gun violence is ignored. Go listen to any rap album where it is endlessly glorified. Black America needs to LOOK IN THE MIRROR.

Gun violence gets a positive response among certain elements in the African Amercian population, and unfortunately, these elements aren´t regarded as the crazy folk the way the mass shooters and their sick followers are.

Thug violence and drive-bys are glorified by rap artists and entertainers. These same people don´t seem to care when the violence kills innocent people. I´ve never heard Snoop Dog rap about how horrible it is that small children standing in their front yards are mowed down by drive-by shootings, yet that happens far too often.

When the black "community" gets fed up enough, I assume they´ll do what´s necessary to lower the level of carnage. Right now, black adults prefer to see young black children murdered than to tell a police detective who they saw doing the murdering. Until that changes, there is nothing I can do except to keep my family far away from that "community".

´´From the wild Irish slums of the 19th century Eastern seaboard, to the riot-torn suburbs of Los Angeles, there is one unmistakable lesson in American history; a community that allows a large number of men to grow up in broken families, dominated by women, never acquiring any stable relationship to male authority, never acquiring any set of rational expectations about the future -- that community asks for and gets chaos. Crime, violence, unrest, disorder -- most particularly the furious, unrestrained lashing out at the whole social structure -- that is not only to be expected; it is very near to inevitable. And it is richly deserved.´´

Really? After DECADES of electing liberal, Democrat, mayors who plea bargain gun crimes down to time served or less, NOW you are getting a clue? You keep liberals in office who deem YOU too dangerous to be armed and at the same time they reject offers by the NRA to help enforce the thousands of gun laws by using Project Exile. You want to stop being ´ignored´ join the NRA and protest for a Project Exile in your city. Wake up.

Twenty seven people dead? Heck, that´s just a week or two´s work in dark blue cities. It´s 27 WHITE RICH PEOPLE that gets the attention. That just cannot be tolerated. Those blacks in Chicago? They kill each other all the time anyway! Right liberals?

Fact is that none of what they do will change anything until they arm the teachers. Then and only then will it diminish. BUT THE LIBERALS HAVE TO DO SOMETHING! Against the Constitution? So what? The Constitution is supposed to slow things down to keep bad legislation from being rammed thru on emotion? But not for liberals. No matter if it is stupid, unconstitutional, emotional, wrong headed and not supported by facts or history. WE MUST DO SOMETHING; even if it is wrong. It´s the liberal way!

I have written letters over many years to politicians and many cable TV talking heads including O´Reilly ( in fact one went to him 2 days ago )> he not only doesn´t read a single one, but like many others he isn´t interested in a national conversation of why Black on Black and Hispanic on Hispanic murders continue. I believe the NRA has stated that 3% of murders are committed by legal weapons ( including mass murder), I have read lower numbers.
The 97% of murders committed by illegal or stolen weapons are committed by felons who do not care about Whitey´s Laws. Think of it this way: they are the MORONS who elected the 536 MORONS (count POTUS ) who run the government.
I haven´t owned a gun since I was a Police Officer 60 years ago, but one is on my do to list.

Good question. Children are shot in the inner cities frequently and I haven´t seen Obama visiting to give a sermon in their honor. Here´s an irony: the recent Supreme Court case striking down Chicago´s strict gun law was brought by an African-American who wanted a gun for his own protection.

If white teenagers were committing crimes against other whites and killing each other at anything like the rate of black "urban youths," a national emergency would be declared. Yet the carnage, the vast majority of which is black on black crime, goes on 24/7 and little that is effective is done about it. An "assault weapon" ban will not help. Most of the crimes are committed with handguns.

The violence and death of black ghettos is actually celebrated in rap music, from which a handful of people of both races are getting fabulously rich.

Liberals ignore the morally depraved urban culture or blame it on racism. They don´t seem to be interested in measures to address the problem, because that would mean acknowledging reality.

#15, hit the nail on the head!! Absolutely right. The left actually created the circumstances that turned that community into a cesspool and they want these people to kill each other. The left created this mess so they could keep them down and without power. It was all an insidious plan by the leftists and Dems. And the reason their own people don´t stand up for themselves and demand solutions is because their community leaders (as have been picked and cultivated by the leftist powers) are in the pocket of the Democrat Party and they will preach to the people that it isn´t their fault it is those rich white Republicans who created their problems. The community leaders were all bought off by the Dems to betray their own people--which they gladly did for power and wealth.
