‘Black on Black Crime’ is a myth

I get tired of having to explain this to people. Black on black crime is a myth that y’all refuse to let go of. It is a media created narrative that leads to the thinking that black people deserve whatever happens to them ‘since they kill themselves anyway.’

Have you ever heard people say ‘white on white crime’ or ‘Chinese on Chinese crime’? Nope. You know why? Because people tend to live in areas heavily populated by other people who look like them. When you live in an area and you commit crimes, you generally commit crimes in that area as well. Therefore, everyone you commit a crime against is going to look like you.

There is no ‘black on black crime.’ There is just crime. Please disabuse yourselves of this disgusting rhetoric the media has taught you and that you continue to shame yourselves with.

Do better.
