A little bit of background.
3,595 black people were murdered in 2019. But in 2020, 5,839 black people were murdered.
That’s an additional 2,244 black people killed.
3,060 white and Latino people were killed in 2019, which rose to 4,167 in 2020.
BLM and pro-crime policies that unleashed a massive crime wave made a difference of 3,000 deaths plus.
America’s murder capitals are Dem territories. Without them, America would be safer than safe.
A groundbreaking study by John R. Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center, revealed that “1% of counties have 21% of the population and 42% of the murders” and “2% of counties contain 31% of the population and 56% of the murders.”
The CPRC study showed that while 2% of counties populated by Democrats were responsible for 56% of the country’s murders, 52% of counties had no murders and 68% of counties had at most one murder.
“If the 1% of the counties with the worst number of murders somehow were to become a separate country, the murder rate in the rest of the US would have been only 4.31 in 2020. Removing the worst 2% or 5% would have reduced the US rate to just 3.71 or 2.99 per 100,000, respectively.” We could have the murder rate of New Zealand.
Cue the media howlers screeching that Republicans just want people to die because they won’t eliminate the Bill of Rights. Their latest pretext for the howling is a transgender woman shooting up a Christian school.
S.E. Cupp / New York Daily News: Gun massacres & the collapse of American values: Nashville elementary school shooting is just another that we accept
Dems and their media accept an added 3,000 deaths, not to mention most of the murders going on in their areas, as part of the price we pay for social justice, diversity and all that good stuff.
When you’re okay with 3,000 murders, pushing phony outrage because you claim that the occasional mass spree killer, a group that accounts for a fraction of a percent of annual homicides, can be prevented by eliminating an entire class of hardware, when you refuse to prevent thousands of murders by locking up criminals is obscene.

Every year in America, some 500 whites are murdered by black assailants, more than twice as many as blacks killed by whites. The media need to report all of these cases fairly and without bias so as to counter the false reporting and misplaced emphasis in the national press. All victims, of whatever race, deserve justice because all human life is precious. The reporting of violence should not be based on race — it should be proportionate to the crime, without regard to the race of the perpetrator or the victim. Jeffrey Folks

BLACK ON BLACK VIOLENCE Data, of crime and policing than this weekend’s demonstrations suggest.

The FBI released its official crime tally for 2016 today, and the data flies in the face of the rhetoric that professional athletes rehearsed in revived Black Lives Matter protests over the weekend. Nearly 900 additional blacks were killed in 2016 compared with 2015, bringing the black homicide-victim total to 7,881. Those 7,881 “black bodies,” in the parlance of Ta-Nehisi Coates, are 1,305 more than the number of white victims (which in this case includes most Hispanics) for the same period, though blacks are only 13 percent of the nation’s population. The increase in black homicide deaths last year comes on top of a previous 900-victim increase between 2014 and 2015.

All Democrat run cities have a higher Crime rate since the Democrats are way too soft on Crime and think counseling and meditation would end all violence
When a political party has a constituency that reliably votes over 90% for that party’s candidates in election after election, that political party will not say or do anything that some in that constituency might object to, even if members of that constituency commit 57% of the homicides in the country while comprising 12.5% of the population. Instead, it will blame guns, white supremacists, religions that oppose the party’s current theories on gender, anything rather than actually addressing the situation and trying to rectify it. Just sayin’.
