Has Black-On-Black Crime Become The Norm-Where Is The Public Outcry in Our Community? KTSCW

While the number of hate crimes committed based upon race decreases, which includes all ethnic groups including African-Americans, the number of black on black crimes is steadily rising. According to federal crime statistics, between the years of 1976 and 2004, out of all murders of African-Americans, 94-percent were committed by another black person.

With the recent outcries behind the shooting death of an innocent teenager Trayvon Martin, as terrible and unfortunate as this tragedy was, it seems that there is a double-standard? With the rate in which we murder our own in the black community, should there not be the same public display of outrage? Has our community turned a blind eye to us murdering our own? Has it become the “norm” and expectation within our own community? Has the lives of the people in our community become so disvalued to point where we have just given up and thrown in the towel?
