How do WE change the narrative, perception and the reality when it comes to Black crime between Black people? We don't NEED the Black Lives Matter movement to take the lead in this conversation nor the community activism, but a lot of people think it could help but only if its platform addresses ALL crimes against Black people and not just Blacks being killed by the police.

"Over the years, John McWhorter, a linguistics scholar at Columbia University, and Glenn Loury, a Brown University economist, have conducted a series of thoughtful public conversations about U.S. politics with a focus on race and black identity. Their latest discussion concerns the Black Lives Matter movement. Should its activists protest police killings of black people or all killings of black people?"

White opponents of the BLM movement try hard to detract from the violence directed by police toward Black people by pointing out the statistics about Black-on-Black crime in our neighborhoods.


Some of its critics are Black people who try to make a case by pointing out this inconsistency and slanted message. This makes it difficult for the BLM movement to gather any traction and be taken seriously. It's not that the points are not well taken, because it's hard to deny knowing what we know based on where we live and what we see. But what can we actually DO about it?


What do you think about the messages in the videos?

Can we have both issues--Black crime in predominantly Black neighborhoods and killings of Black people by police--combined and included in the same message in the public arena?

What can we do in our neighborhoods to address this issue and lower the Black body count?

It takes more than just how Black parents raise their sons and daughters, doesn't it? Some innocent children are victims through no fault of their own.

Are guns the problem? Drugs? Rage and anger?

IMO : black crime is a result of blacks who have adopted the poisonous values of the white.
the teaching of an african based value system will prompt the person to turn away from crime.

People need an alternative, one that they can envision for themselves...A lack of education, guidance and other things combined with and overall sense of powerlessness leads to destruction both inward and outward... I believe that if there can be a real conversation with the gangs maybe a degree of trust can be realized..which will open a path for real change...They gotta buy into it...Just my thoughts..Excellent post Sister...

They have adapted the mentality and destructive image of gangsta rap and the poisonous thugish life style that it spews.. I don't see any white folks out here killing one another in their neighborhoods like we do.They also listen to rap music..So don't put this on white folks....

You said.IMO : black crime is a result of blacks who have adopted the poisonous values of the white.

I don't see any white folks out here killing one another in their neighborhoods like we do.They also listen to rap music..So don't put this on white folks....So the convo is about the reason why black on black crime is so high along with the murder rate...

Ok. Maybe this will bring it into perspective for you....

Whites comprise 63% of the population while we are 13% and we commit almost as much crime as they do. Don't you think that is way out of proportion when you compare the volume of crime versus population? Imagine how staggering the numbers would be if we were 63% of the population...That would be like a 50% increase in the crime rate committed by us. DAG!!! Well maybe I'm going a little bit overboard here with the 50%, but you get my drift brother...
