I'll respond to the thread title:
Black on Black violence; who cares?
I don't... Black on Black violence isn't anymore of an issue then it is with White on White or Mexican on Mexican violence..... Violence is violence plain and simple and I hardly believe that black people who commit violence against other black people just simply isolate their attacks to just their own race and probably commit violence against anybody they feel they want to, just like any other race on the planet.
If there are more violent crimes commited on average by the black community compared to any other race, then perhaps one should address that problem and why it is happening, not just the violence they commit against their own race.
Frig, I never cared for the term "Black on Black Violence" and how big of an issue it is, as it seems to potray that kind of violence as worse then any other violennce in society or that it's more important then any other form of violence.
When you're getting your *** kicked in an alley, it doesn't matter if you're black or white or any other race.... it's still violence.
In which neighbourhoods do the majority of drive-by's happen?
I understand your point Praxius on dismissing singling out Black on Black violence as no different from any butt kicking in any alley way.
The proclivity of the civil rights groups to focus on race vs race violence instead of their own race killing their own race requires special attention. Focusing on black on black violence is not as sexy an issue in the major media as is black vs white or latino vs black, etcetera.
And what are drive-bys done by? Gangs.... which I already addressed.... unless it's just a favorite pass time for some people.
Regardless, it's not all black people who do drive-bys either and there are many other races at play..... but they all sum up to gangs.
Solve the gang problems and you just might solve your "Black on Black Violence."
Just claiming it's blacks who do drive-bys or the majority of it, is racist in itself, as it excludes any other races from doing this sort of thing and doesn't address the real problem..... which is why this "Black on Black Violence" hasn't been solved yet..... because there's no such thing, just like Global Warming..... once again, that is unless you want to just isolate that race as the bad guys and make it sound like no other races attack each other.
