Let me first start by saying that the violence that plagues the inner cities of America is beyond despicable and a shame on humanity . There is no place on planet earth for this kind of behavior and it needs to be stomped out as soon as humanly possible . With that being said , the problem isn ’ t going to be fixed overnight and it ’ s going to take the entire nation to find a viable remedy . But in no way is this violence “ Black on Black Crime ”. Yes , many of the victims and culprits are people of African descent , aka black Americans , but no crime in the history of the planet has ever been labeled by skin color or ethnicity . Never
Humans have been violent towards each other since Cain and Able and the cause of this violence has nothing to do with ethnicity or the melanin content of one ’ s skin . Violence and crime has always been associated with dissatisfaction with one ’ s own life and the illusion that one has limited options .
