    Aaron Goggans — the core organizer of Black Lives Matter, DC — told CNN’s Carol Costello Thursday that black-on-black crime is a myth.

    Goggans was responding to a video former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis posted earlier in the week in which he called for removing guns from the streets as a key part of solving the problem of black-on-black crime.

    “It’s important to talk about the myth of black-on-black crime as just that — a myth,” Goggans explained.

    If it's not a myth, it needs to be one. Nothing more than a bunch of words thrown together by racially prejudiced and racist white people to push a certain narrative at which the conservative press swallowed hook, line and sinker.

    Wonder why the same folks so fond of black-on-black crime don't talk about white on white crime?

    Because, there isn't a vocal organization named "White Lives Matter."

    When you're killing everybody except white people, ain't too much more vocal than that. When you're incarcerating at a greater rate everybody except white people when they are committing the same crimes, ain't too much more vocal than that.

    Your statement is just like the statements white people make about why there is a Miss Black America Pageant and not a Miss White America Pageant?

    White people don't have to vocally organize and say that White Lives Matter when their actions constantly marginalize the lives of everyone else.

    Should I read your comment as a personalization? After all as can easily be seen by my avatar, I am white.

    I think it should be personalized for the people who are doing it and for the ones who can't seem to bring themselves to acknowledge that it's being done.

    The white people in power, some not all, have a very bad habit of starting narratives that stereotype everyone except them.

    Ask yourself why the mote response of so many white people when BLM is mentioned, they say "All lives matter" or "If all lives matter, what about black on black crime?"

    Why don't we say "If all lives matter, what about white on white crime?" Ain't that big of a difference between white on white crime and black on black crime.

    But it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that it's the continued attempts to stereotype Blacks as more violent or as savages.

    Fox News pundits started it and folks repeat it because they feel it justifies their belief that Black Lives don't Matter.
    While once again showing the sincere ignorance or more rightly the conscientious stupidity associated with those who retort that All Lives Matter.

    So yes they are saying Black Lives Matter because the white people in power are treating them and killing them as though Black Lives don't matter.

    Black people are well aware that the majority of Blacks are killed by other Blacks.

    The problem is white people acting like they aren't equally aware that the majority of white people are killed by other white people. And then trying to act like Blacks killing Blacks somehow diminishes what's being done to Blacks by a policing and judicial system that is racist and racially prejudiced to its core.

    This is nothing more than a newfound way to implement the Southern Strategy. If there were any other motive than trying to make Blacks look more violent than everyone else, then white on white crime would receive the same amount of coverage.

    It doesn't because the folks in power aren't really concerned about the crime, but only about using it as a political tool to draft a certain narrative without having to say the N word. Lately, because the anger is rising, some white people who feel this way are slipping and calling Blacks savages and demonic because it again, plays into the narrative started by Whites upon bringing Blacks to this country. It's a continued narrative that has tried to dress itself up while continuing to marginalize the lives of Blacks. It basically says all the stuff that Blacks say is going on doesn't matter because they are killing themselves.

    Well they are killing themselves. And white people are killing themselves.
    But the police and the judicial system isn't killing unarmed white people the way they are Blacks. They aren't imprisoning Whites the same way that they are Blacks.

    So if anyone is giving their approval that Black Lives don't Matter by responding that "All lives matter" or "If all lives matter, what about black on black crime?", then please, feel free to personalize what I said.

    No, proportionately the rate of black on black on black crime is much greater than white on white crime. Pick a city. Let's say Chicago. It's graringly obvious.
    What nonsense. The reason why there are proportionally more blacks in jail than whites is that blacks commit much more crime than whites.Blacks kill,rob and assault fellow blacks at an alarmingly high rate and therefore are jailed for the crimes. There is no injustice or racially motivated reason for the abnormally high black imprisoned rate. Crime is crime. When blacks kill blacks and sentenced to prison should they be released into society instead? Be rational.
    You are very wrong. First of all, the term "unarmed" has to be dealt with. Michael Brown was unarmed in a sense. But his huge body and attempts at the police officer's gun made him armed. Blacks tend to resist arrests more often than whites. Blacks constitute around 12-13% of the population in America. In real numbers more whites are killed by cops of any color than blacks are killed by cops of any color.

    All your posts condemning whites are racist. You think of yourself as morally superior. You twist reality time and time again.

    A fine idea. Thus far we have 170 shot and killed out of 888 shot. Police are 2 for 3

    Hmmm. A myth? I'm wondering if the FBI has any statistics on crimes and race?

    Proportional to what?

    Now THAT is some nonsense. A stereotypical lie straight from the desk of Fox News and white folks who want to push the narrative that Blacks are more violent and commit more crimes than their white counterparts. There are five times more white people in this country than there are black people. White people by far commit more crime simply because there's more white people to commit crimes.

    The racial disparities arise during the policing and arresting and the convicting which all open things up to the obvious racial disparity that Blacks know exists even if a lot of white folks refuse to recognize it.


    You be rational. If whites were policed the same way that Blacks are policed, there would be more white folks in jail Whites kill,rob, and assault fellow whites at an alarmingly high rate, but magically don't get jailed for their crimes. And that's not because they aren't committing the crimes.

    That's your opinion.

    Oh please. You're grasping for straws. By that silly definition anybody could be considered armed.:rolleyes: Magically again, I suppose, it's only the armed with their huge body black people who are getting killed in mass numbers by the police.

    If white neighborhoods were policed the way that black neighborhoods are, the numbers would be the other way around. So again, your narrative doesn't hold water. You can't stack the deck and then blame the folks you stacked it against for having a higher rate of resistance.


    In real numbers, Whites commit more crime than Blacks.

    You OBVIOUSLY don't understand what racism is. You're just upset that I again don't have a problem calling out what white people do in this country. Sure Blacks do a lot of stuff. But so do white people. But when there is systemic racism and racial prejudice against Blacks built into the system on purpose ( Once again, Southern Strategy), don't think for a minute that anyone with good sense is not gonna point out the foolishness of the Fox News talking points that you've presented.

    If white neighborhoods were policed in the 90s and 2000s for cocaine the same way that black neighborhoods were for crack, I guarantee there would be a whole lot more white folks locked up next to their black counterparts instead of receiving probation.

    And being morally superior has nothing to do with it. The majority, and that includes you, just seem to want to demonize Black people. And that's fine if that's what you want to do. But understand that I've got better sense than to sit back and read the foolishness without pointing out that ain't no black people flown no planes from Central and South America to bring the drugs into their neighborhoods. I've got enough sense to call out the injustices in the policing and adjudicating systems.

    And if you think that is racist, big deal.

    This whole white superiority complex that pervades this board and this country needs to be brought into context. The drugs that are in black neighborhoods are there because white people put them there. The guns that are there are there because white people put them there.

    So yeah there is black on black crime. But there is black on black crime because white people have rigged an economic system that has created a 100,000 dollar plus wealth gap and a policing system that makes felons out of black men while giving probation to their white counterparts for the same crimes. So if you rig the system so that the majority of Blacks end up with felony records, and then cannot get hired by the white owned companies, and then introduce an illegal way for them to make money while your hands stay clean, then yeah there will be Black on Black crime.

    But there are plenty of mitigating circumstances that place a lot of this right back in the laps of white America. Deal with it. Facts are facts even if white America doesn't want to accept part of the blame.

    The idea that B on B crime is a myth is pure propaganda. It is very much like the notion that Islamic terrorism is not of Islam. It is an effort to remove the stigma created by the overwhelming truth. See the truth actually marginalizes their current efforts to blame whitey for everything.

    Until everybody starts talking about white on white crime, I'm placing black on black crime in that same social construct as black and white as races. Certain white people started that narrative too. And looks like their modern day friends want to continue the experiment to marginalize and devalue the lives of one group while elevating themselves.

    Yep right in that vein of how Blacks were treated as less than a full human during slavery.

    Nothing but wickedness.

    I did not think that a "Like" rating was appropriate because of the nature of the post's subject, but it was a good post.

    Tons of them. They all confirm that blacks commit a hugely disproportionate share of violent crimes when compared to their percentage of the population. It's even worse when only black males are considered. Excusing it away won't change the facts..or the numbers.
