90 Percent Of Black Murder Victims Are Killed By Other Blacks: An Epidemic That Needs The Focus Of The Mass Media, Black Leaders, President Obama, Attorney General Holder: Crimes Against And Murder Of Blacks By Whites Is Not A Major Problem In Today's US That Needs Either Media Or Government Special Attention

From The Wall Street Journal, "Jason Riley: Race, Politics and the Zimmerman Trial: The left wants to blame black criminality on racial animus and 'the system,' but blacks have long been part of running that system." by Jason L Riley:
The homicide rate claiming black victims today is seven times that of whites, and the George Zimmermans of the world are not the reason. Some 90% of black murder victims are killed by other blacks.

So let's have our discussions, even if the only one that really needs to occur is within the black community. Civil-rights leaders today choose to keep the focus on white racism instead of personal responsibility, but their predecessors knew better.

"Do you know that Negroes are 10 percent of the population of St. Louis and are responsible for 58% of its crimes? We've got to face that. And we've got to do something about our moral standards," Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. told a congregation in 1961. "We know that there are many things wrong in the white world, but there are many things wrong in the black world, too. We can't keep on blaming the white man. There are things we must do for ourselves."
