Black-on-black victims could fill our stadiums
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | April 4, 2012 | John Fountain

Imagine Soldier Field beyond capacity, brimming with 63,879 young African-American men, ages 18 to 24 — more than U.S. losses in the entire Vietnam conflict.

Imagine the University of Michigan’s football stadium — the largest in the U.S. — filled to its limit of 109,901 with black men, age 25 and older. Now add 28,223 more — together totaling more than U.S. deaths in World War I.

Picture two UIC Pavilions packed with 12,658 Trayvon Martins — black boys, ages 14 to 17 — nearly twice the number of U.S. lives lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Now picture all of them dead. The national tally of black males 14 and older murdered in America from 1976 through 2005, according to U.S. Bureau of Justice statistics: 214,661.

The numbers tell only part of the story of this largely urban war, where the victims bear an uncanny resemblance to their killers. A war of brother against brother, filled with wanton and automatic gunfire, even in the light of day, on neighborhood streets, where little boys make mud pies, schoolgirls jump rope, where the innocent are caught in the crossfire, where the spirit of murder blows like the wind.

It is, so far, a ceaseless war in which guns are often the weapon of choice, and the finger on the trigger of the gun pointed at a black male is most often another black male’s.

The numbers alone are enough to make me cry — to wonder why — we as African Americans will march en masse over one slain by someone who is not black, and yet sit silent over the hundreds of thousands of us obliterated from this mortal world by someone black like us, like me. It is a numbing truth borne out by hard facts:

This is Alinsky’s Rule 4: Make opponents live up to their own book of rules, but they have no rules for themselves, so they have nothing to live up to.

The only reason why the Zimmerman story is so big in the news (and ironically being used to represent a problem) is because it is a completely rare man bites dog type of story.

Whitey = OPPRESSOR, African-american = OPPRESSED.

Right?

I mean, that is what the media conveys, so black-on-black crime must not exist.

Very sad...

What is horrifying however, is that the number pales in comparison to the TENS OF MILLIONS of black abortions during the same period of time...

One can be hard and look at what is happening as relieving whites from an unpleasant response to the increasingly frequent threats and assaults.

Excellent point. Abortion is a war on minorities, women ( and obviously children!) Somebody call the media.

Now, if you take all the white males that caused the death of all those black males and put them in a stadium, you can fill up 1, maybe 2 skyboxes.

That should put things in persective.

These statistics sound like murder rates Mogadishu Somalia. I wonder what the common denominator is?

“As far as I can see, that’s at least 295,893 reasons to cry. And it is cause enough for reticent churches, for communities, for lackadaisical leaders, for all people — no matter our race, color or creed — to find the collective will and the moral resolve to stamp out this human rights atrocity occurring right under our noses.”

Been there and done that. Whitey has left the building.
Take care of it yourself.

I’m so finished with taking any and every insult from the Black community and then being told it’s up to us to do something.

Black violence may have roots in the cessation of teaching them Christian morality. Up until the 1960’s this was a given in public school. Now, of course, it is outlawed. We reap what we sow.

WOW...just wow...I knew it was bad, but the numbers are startling.
The national tally of black males 14 and older murdered in America from 1976 through 2005, according to U.S. Bureau of Justice statistics: 214,661.

From 1980 through 2008, 93 percent of black victims were killed by blacks.

Translation: For every Trayvon Martin killed by someone not black, nine other blacks were murdered by someone black.

In 2005, we — blacks — accounted for 13 percent of the U.S. population but 49 percent of all homicides. The numbers are staggering, the loss incomprehensible.

No one is better served by gun ownership than blacks. Just look at crime stats from any major city. Every time I turn around I see another story out of Detroit about a black citizen rightfully killing an attacker.

****and the finger on the trigger of the gun pointed at a black male is most often another black male’s.****

Bring back the “BLACK CODES” which forbade blacks and former slaves from owning firearms! That should solve the problem!

Which is the black side of the civil rights struggle. White segregationists conceded decades ago that racism is immoral and unproductive; in fact, I haven’t met a white racist is many years, and you’d think by my skin tone at least one would take me in his confidence.

On the black side, though, the concept of being a holy victim has taken root, which expresses itself as a lack of responsibility and the urge to blame others for all failings. The Treyvon Martin incident is pointing out, against the protests by the racemongers like Sharpton and Reuters, that the problems in the black community lie with the people themselves.

Indeed, the whole “white Hispanic” concept has a South Park feel to it. A trial, if it occurs, will (probably) show a thuggish youth attacking a smaller guy, who used a gun in self-defense, and the statements from the black side will be seen clearly for what it is - race hatred against whites, mass hysteria that resembles a lynch mob, and inflamed emotions detached from reality. Obama and the left fanning those flames will see that the fire consumes them, not the American people they dispise so much.

In fact, it’ll be a cleansing fire. Writers like this one from Chicago want what we all want - a normal family, safe neighborhoods, rule of law. He’s trying to take responsibility in his way. Obama had a chance but threw it away with leftist diatribes and racist animosity.

There will come that moment when everyone sees that blacks can be as racist and vicious as any Klansman. It could come in this trial. And then they’ll have to find that humility that whites faced so many years ago with the sit-ins and passive nonresistance.

IMHO
