Kush Queendom on Black on Black Crime

Kush had a lot to so say about this article. Check it out!

hhh

This is something I’ve always said. The whole black on black crime thing is totally false. Every race kills their own more than others outside of their race. Yes blacks are killed more by other blacks than anyone else… But So are whites, Latinos, Asians etc. It goes back to familiarity and comfort. Why does know one bring up white on white crime? Latino on Latino crime? Because black on black crime was made for you to focus on bs instead of the bigger picture. It was meant to throw you off. Everytime blacks make a loud enough noise about unfair killings, rascim, inequality other blacks feels the need to.bring up this bs… not realizing they too are brain washed. Just take your hand.. Make a fist.. And rub your eyes. I hope you wake up. – Kush Queendom IG: @Kush_Queendom

“1. First thing to debunk? The term “black-on-black crime”:

“America is very segregated, and its criminality conforms to that fact. So the victims of most crimes are the same race as those who commit them. Eighty-four percent of white people who are killed every year are killed by white people. White people who buy illegal drugs are most likely to buy them from white people. Far from being extraordinary, the fact that black criminals are most likely to commit crimes against black people makes them just like everybody else. A more honest term than “black-on-black crime” would be, simply, ‘crime.’”

Kush used this except from the article below:

So we here at Fusion have put together a comprehensive list on what to do when someone you love, hate, or feel so-so about goes on about “but what about that black crime in the black community” as an alternative to talking about the deaths of black people by police. We got you. Start with: “Nah, chill. Here’s what’s actually going on.”

1. First thing to debunk? The term “black-on-black crime”:

Gary Younge over at the Nation writes:

“America is very segregated, and its criminality conforms to that fact. So the victims of most crimes are the same race as those who commit them. Eighty-four percent of white people who are killed every year are killed by white people. White people who buy illegal drugs are most likely to buy them from white people.

2. Gun violence in black communities is a matter of public health, and it depends on a variety of structural inequalities.

Jonah Birch and Paul Heideman break it down in Jacobin:

“Research suggests that violent crime rates are driven by a variety of social factors which tend to make American cities particularly prone to gun violence against black residents. Among the most of these factors are very high levels of neighborhood segregation,concentrated un- and underemployment, poverty and a dearth of adequate social services or institutional resources. Fundamentally, gun violence has to be treated like other kinds of public health problems — not as the basis for continuous, empty calls for an introspective discussion about ‘black on black violence.’ And like other kinds of public health disparities, tackling high rates of inter-personal violence requires confronting the social context in which it occurs.”
