NPR desperately trying to cover the pandemic Black violence around America by blaming it on heat is soundly ridiculous. Tomorrow, they'll blame it on global warming, when Black behavior here and abroad sure makes it look like a racial issue.

And you don't think race has anything to do with rates of violence I guess. Somehow white racism makes the violent people black.

Wake up, I remember as a young person saying to a friend you know one of these days balck people will start carrying guns instead of knives , there will be hell to pay then and low and behold it happened.

It is the HEAT

An estimated 32% of black males will enter State or Federal prison during their lifetime, compared to 17% of Hispanic males and 5.9% of white males.

At midyear 2007 there were 4,618 black male sentenced prisoners per 100,000 black males in the United States, compared to 1,747 Hispanic male sentenced prisoners per 100,000 Hispanic males and 773 white male sentenced prisoners per 100,000 white males.

In 2005, Homicide offending rates for blacks were more than 7 times higher than the rates for whites

An August 2003 Bureau of Justice Statistics analysis shows that 32 percent of black males born in 2001 can expect to spend time in prison over the course of their lifetime. That is up from 13.4 percent in 1974 and 29.4 percent in 1991. By contrast, 17.2 percent of Hispanics and 5.9 percent of whites born in 2001 are likely to end up in prison.

It is the same story over and over.

Yea NPR it is the heat, right.

The City of Chicago has no respect for the law.

Dare they ask anyone if they are legal or not?? Nope !! Sorry, nope, they are NOT ALLOWED to ask that question.

They make their city a SANCTUARY and wonder why citizens have no respect for the law.

Drugs, gangs, violence, illegal status, cash jobs, babies out of wedlock (creating CERTAIN poverty) all open the door to potential criminal activity and retribution.
