FREEDOM’S GATE: Should Obama lead the war on black on black crime?

FREEDOM’S GATE: Should Obama lead the war on black on black crime?

This war on the black community by killers in the black community is a phenomenon that is unfortunately far too familiar. Join host Kevin Fobbs and guest Al Ashworth

WASHINGTON, June 4, 2015 – The tragic death of Charnice Milton on Wednesday is one startling example of the human carnage which has become the result of black-on-black murders in urban America. The internal race war which Milton fell victim to on the streets of Washington, D.C., is a chilling reality.  The Bureau of Justice Statistics revealed in 2007 that 93 percent of African-Americans murdered each year are victims of other blacks.

More recent statistics by the FBI point to an estimated 6,002 victims of black-on black-homicides in 2012. This is 93 percent of the total 6,454 black victims of murder that year. Young black men in the preceding year were not in danger of death by white police officers.

Instead, based upon the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), homicide was the No. 1 killer of black men between the ages of 15 and 34 in 2011. Their deaths were overwhelmingly at the hands of other blacks.

In effect, blacks are being slaughtered in the streets of urban cities like Baltimore and Chicago and in the nation’s capital. According to the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, the weekend after Milton’s murder there were six killings in the district. In addition, there have been 49 murders in the city so far in 2015.

This war on the black community by killers in the black community is a phenomenon that is unfortunately far too familiar. In the same 2007 Bureau of Justice Statistics report, FBI records show that 8,000 blacks were victims of homicide by black killers.

The epidemic of murders impacts families and communities, and yet Barack Obama has not targeted the problem or developed a plan of action. This week on Standing at Freedom’s Gate, host Kevin Fobbs and Al Ashworth, author, business owner and guest host of the nationally syndicated “Freedom’s Journal” radio show will deal with the deadly plague of black-on-black murders that is strangling urban America.

Join the discussion and see what affirmative remedies can change urban America from tolerance of black-on- black killings to preserving black lives and rebuilding urban America. All this will be discussed on the next “Standing at Freedom’s Gate” show.
