    This is not a Black crisis but a national emergency, according to Currie. In a society where “intentional violence” of all kinds exists more than in “any other advanced nation,” he writes, “African-Americans suffer it all out of proportion to their share of the population.”

    It's poverty yo, mixed with systemic racism and a gun happy culture.
    You get what you deserve


    The problem with the woke left is they won't accept the reality this is actually the truth. They really think (or at least they act as if they really think) police misconduct is the problem. And they are completely unwilling to accept the reality all their efforts at "reform" are horribly backfiring because they have done such a poor job of acknowledging the problem.
    the left doesn't care about black people, the left doesn't care about white people, they want a race war so they can keep us from them, the poor from the rich, I just wish everyone could see thru this bullshit, and get back to the occupy days of fighting the rich.

    now it seems the left has trained their idiots to be shills for big tech, big pharma and big media, disgusting

    Sad!

    The problem is desperate people do desperate things. That is worldwide. You figure out who the desperate are in your neck of the woods and then ask why?

    JFC, the Mayor of Brooklyn Center was just interviewed and said it's not safe to drive there if you're black....Are you fucking kidding me? Dems, it's up to you to quit enabling these retards.

    Does anyone know the worst thing you can call a black person is? Hint, it starts with an N and ends with an R

    It's hilarious that we as a society think everyone can be a dr, a lawyer, an engineer. Some people are just fucking stupid. Why can't we just accept that?

    This isn't a Black problem. This is strictly an African American problem. The Africans who immigrate to the USA are thriving and becoming some of the most successful groups in the USA. Immigrants from African countries I know personally hate to be lumped into the same group as African Americans. They don't want that association.

    Legalizing pot and lowering criminal penalties will only result in people making more bad life choices.

    At the end of the day, systemic poverty - regardless of race - is very tough to remedy. USA has a terrible Gini coefficient and USA is a pretty bad place to move up the income ladder, despite the myth of 'American Dream."
