Considering that most balcks are killed in black on black crimes what does this tell us?

NO it isnt Bush's fault!
NO it isnt "whitey's" fault!
NO the "system" isnt killing folks!
Could it be the Black American culture...

While African Americans comprise 13.5% of the U.S. Population, 43% of all murder victims in 2007 were African American, 93.1% of whom were killed were African Americans.

Now, it has been reported recently that nearly half U.S. murder victims are African Americans despite the fact that African Americans make up only 13 percent of the U.S. population.

In the 1970s and the 1980s, I published articles in refereed journals in which I suggested that black inner-city youth in the U.S. grow up in a residually oral culture, especially those who do not develop what is termed functional literacy levels in their reading scores.

How many books has Jonathan Kozol published lamenting the inadequacies of inner-city schools?

Evidently, the political will does not exist to address the serious problems that Kozol keeps writing books about, or else he would have stopped writing books about the problems.

But what about the murder rate among African Americans?

From my standpoint as a scholar devoted to Ong's thought, I would say that it is axiomatic that the murder rate among African Americans will go down as the functional literacy rates among African Americans go up.

Because President Barack Obama is the first African American president of the United States, perhaps he should undertake a concerted effort to reduce the number of African American murder victims in the United States.

I hate quoting that one because of the typo in there.
It SHOULD read;
"93.1% of whom were killed "BY" African Americans."

But it doesn't change the truth that they don't even like each OTHER....

Biracial isn't a race stupid. According to legal definition he is black. How do you think he got through college on the affirmative action plan.

Just wait till the "BIG RACE WAR" they're all calling for. Lets run the numbers....Population in America as of 2012 313,414,040. Whites 244,539,037. blacks 41,122,739. White gun owners 107,597,176. black gun owners 11,103,139. That means every White gun owner can kill the entire black population over 2.6 times. I don't see a good outcome for their population number if they do start a war.
