And if this is the fruit of your womb, sister, and if this is the fruit of our seed, brother, what kind of woman have you become, and what kind of man have we become, that this is our violent fruit?

Preach!!!

"The schools have failed in their stewardship of the minds of our young people; and the teachers have failed in their responsibility to the children, because the teachers are not growing; therefore, they cannot grow their students. We are a part of a system that is a plantation educational system, a plantation political system, and a plantation social system, and unfortunately, a plantation religious system."

What about the PARENTS!!!!!!!

SMH!

The only way to curb gun violence is to truly investigate exactly how so many guns keep getting into these communities. Given the fact that the government has be caught red handed in the fast and furious debacle in which guns were being allowed to flow into Mexico, it's clear that a similar program is going on in which guns are being 'allowed' to flow into certain communities. So the strategy has to start with an investigation of the governmental agencies tasked to watch guns.

It's seems quite clear that the demand for black market guns and/or illegal gun transactions are going on pretty much unabated in this country.

Chicago is a war zone, but how are there so many guns in the hands of local clowns? What are the handing them out at candy stores? How are so many guns getting to so many people in Chicago?

There has to be better tracking of guns, and there has to be better accountability by agencies tasked with tracking gun transactions.

The random nature in which people are being shot in Chicago appears to be based more on that fact that somehow a large amount of people have guns, than gang activity.

The guns are coming from blacks doing their robberies and burglaries.

The fact is that while blacks make up only 12 percent of the population, they account for 46 percent of total violent crime and 90 percent of the murders of other blacks. It is they, not whites or gun manufacturers, who are responsible for the disproportionate gun deaths of young black males.

Firearms don’t kill people. Sociopaths do. It takes a human brain to pull the trigger. If young black males abuse firearms in an irresponsible and criminal fashion, why should the firearm industry be held accountable? Why not their parents? Why not themselves?

This has always been the stupidest, most retarded cliche. People with guns have an entirely different psychopathy than those without them.

You are a typical idiot, first the entire Black population doesn't commit crime (so you statement is a misnomer), then your percentages are way off in terms of the crimes committed by Black criminals... leave the Meth alone airhead.

The majority of guns involved in homicides in Chicago come from 'straw' sells moron, how about you learn something airhead before posting again.

So, then you're saying every law abiding gun owner is some sort of sociopath? Cars kill people everyday...maybe you would like to ban those too.

White criminals commit the majority of crimes classified as theft (larceny, burglaries...), so if anything Blacks are getting 'hot' guns from White thieves.

The same reason every Mexican drug cartel member had a gun in reason years, is the very same thing going on in Black communities. Fast and furious-like programs.

"With respect to race,
whites were substantially more likely to
own guns than blacks (27 versus 16 percent),
and blacks more likely than Hispanics
(16 versus 11 percent). But for
handguns alone, the ownership rates
among blacks and whites were nearly
equal (13.1 versus 16.5 percent)."

IMPORTANT****Blacks who make up 13% of the pop own 13% of the handguns.

Whites who make up 65% of the pop own only 16.5% of the handguns.

Why do blacks need all these handguns????

Answer..... CRIME/MURDER.

Wrong again crack head.

Blacks commit more robberies every year than the remaining 87% of the population combined.

You know that already though.
