[This is a rerun of South Africa and Africa and what we whites have learned here. This is the NORM for these people. This is why Apartheid and Segregation were the CORRECT white responses to these black people. We must also stop teaching these people things and we must focus all our energy on ourselves, our children, etc. We must stop trying to "save” these people. What will work best for us is to leave them to their own nightmares WHICH THEY CREATE THEMSELVES. If we leave these people alone, they will go DOWN BY THEMSELVES! Their situation will become ever crazier. It will be their own doing. This is the best way to deal with them. As the nightmare that they create, worsens, they will find their own societies and countries spiralling out of control. In the meantime, we whites can save ourselves and build up our future.
Note: Chicago has the strictest gun control in the USA and yet Blacks don’t seem to have a problem getting hold of guns. The only truly interesting and different item in this article is that there are more offenders than victims. It seem 2 and even 3 blacks go together to murder another black. That is very interesting. I notice that the majority of murders are committed with firearms… a white man’s invention… Jan]
After hearing about a woman attempting to start a sex-strike in Chicago, ultimately based on the Ancient Greek play Lysistrata, to end the gun violence, we thought it would be good to dig into the numbers a little bit. We wish we hadn’t.
Simply put, Chicago has a massive Black-on-Black murder problem. All of the data below comes from the Chicago Police Department. You can access it here.
In 2011, the latest data officially released by the Chicago Police, there were 433 homicides. Of these, just 128 (29%) had a corresponding prosecution.
83.4% of deaths were from shootings, 6.7% stabbings, and 6.5% assaults. Of the 362 firearm homicides, 351 (97%) were from handguns. 77% of all homicide victims had a prior arrest history. Victims were 90% male.
Victims by Age:
Victims by Race:
What stands out the most looking at both charts and knowing that 90% of the victims are male is that a lot of young, Black men are being killed in Chicago. No race comes even close to overall deaths by homicide. Keep in mind that based on 2010 Census numbers, only 33% of Chicago’s population was classified as Black.
In 2011, there were 140 convicted offenders for the 128 victims with an associated prosecution. There were more offenders than victims because 10.7% of homicides had two offenders and 10.0% had three or more offenders convicted. 87% of all offenders had a prior arrest history. Offenders were 88% male.
Offenders by Age:
Offenders by Race:
The data on offenders also tells a troubling story: Young, Black males are overwhelmingly committing most of the murders. Based on the data on the victims, that means young, Black males are primarily killing other young, Black males. What a terrible situation.
Now, we can and should debate about the causes, but let us just say that it’s hard to believe that racism is the root of it. Yes, some will argue that systemic racism traps Blacks in poverty, but does that explain why Blacks would seem to target other Blacks with such overwhelming violence and frequency compared to any other race? Furthermore on the race issue, it’s interesting to note that the Hispanics seem to actually murder more than they are murdered, while both Whites and Blacks are indeed murdered more than they murder.
Looking at the troubling statistics, is it reasonable to be reminded of Don Lemon’s (a Black, CNN anchor) somewhat famous and controversial comments during the George Zimmerman acquittal in 2013:
“‘Black people,’ Lemon said, ‘if you really want to fix the problem, here’s just five things that you should think about doing.’
The No. 1 item on that list — ‘and probably the most important,’ he said — had to do with out-of-wedlock births.
‘Just because you can have a baby, it doesn’t mean you should,’ Lemon said. ‘Especially without planning for one or getting married first. More than 72 percent of children in the African-American community are born out of wedlock. That means absent fathers. And the studies show that lack of a male role model is an express train right to prison and the cycle continues.'”
What Lemon describes is a culture problem. It’s not that there isn’t culture, it’s whether or not it is the type that truly promotes human flourishing. Watching videos like the one below, our hearts go out to any mom or dad (hopefully, both) trying to raise a child right in such carnage.
