People are constantly talking about black on black killings and how blacks need to stop killing blacks (as if whites don't kill white and Asians don't kill Asians, etc.) Decided to google around for some FACTS:

Ninety percent of gun deaths of Black children and teens in 2009 were homicides (1,092); six percent were suicides (72).
Among White children and teens, almost half of all gun deaths in 2009 were homicides (730) while 46 percent were suicides (698).
White children and teens are twice as likely to commit suicide by gun as Black children and teens.

In 2009, 43 percent of gun deaths were Black children and teens and 54 percent were White;
59 percent of homicide victims were Black children and teens;
87 percent of suicide victims were White.


http://www.childrensdefense.org/chi...tions/data/protect-children-not-guns-2012.pdf

So 1,092 deaths were black children (2009 was the latest I could find figures for). The black population of the U.S. is 40,000,000. Thus, black children killing black children is LESS than a percent of a percent of blacks in the U.S.

In short, 1% of 40 million is 400,000. 1,092 is 1% of 1% of.....

Btw, even if that 1,092 figure has gone up 3 fold in 2013 from 1,092 to 3,276, it STILL comes out to 1% of 1% of the total population.

So the question is: If black teens stopped killing each other, today, what kind of shape would black America be in? Would we better prepared to fight racism? What?

From report:

Gun injuries for Black children was ~7,000 . . ..

Gun homocide is leading cause of death for Black teens 15-19.

Regarding analysis:

40 million is the approximate population of African people in America, but not the approximate population of African children.

Black homicide deaths need not be entirely intraracial.

Black Youth Deaths lower Black Birthrates; i.e. a family of 3 children becomes a family of 2. This makes a propagation of 1.5 into 1.0. Which is low for a race with a future.

The number is multiplied by 19 because it's over a 19 year period.

Regarding Question:

"If black teens stopped killing each other, today, what kind of shape would black America be in? Would we better prepared to fight racism? What?"

Though we may not be the predominant killers of ourselves, our injuries and deaths are nothing light. The police technically don't kill many Africans yet the effects of their domination on our struggle is evident. We'd need to dismiss that if we would dismiss this supposed greater self-inflicted death toll.

Just because one isn't killed or injured doesn't mean one isn't threatened, turned away, violated, or damaged. A man can do an armed robbery without firing a shot; a man can rape at gunpoint without a bullet lost; a man can enslave another and never kill anyone. The numbers don't tell the stories.

If you wish to talk about a 19 year period instead of the one-year period stated in the OP, start up a thread talking about it. :)

Who gives a crap??! I asked a question. Either answer it or START YOUR OWN THREAD so that you may appea.....

**sigh**.

You ever hear of a STRAWMAN ARGUMENT? That's all your post consists of. Out of all this verbiage, you have yet to answer the question posed in the OP.... And all who have fallen victim to your 'lookit me! lookit me!' hot air pontification know why.:10400:

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
