Murder Rates

How does black-on-black murder rates in the major cities (think Chicago) compare to the number of blacks killed needlessly and negligently by police officers? The former is a very big number, while the latter is miniscule by comparison, yet the liberal press harps on the the latter and largely ignores the former.

Which of course doesn’t mean we shouldn’t investigate and condemn blacks killed by police needlessly and negligently, but which is the more serious problem — statistically?

Yes, the black community is justified in their concern about unjustified, discriminatory treatment by police, but I would argue their biggest concern, by far, should be gang violence and violence with regard to the drug trade.
