last time i checked, Black people BEEN gettin’ murdered by assault weapons…
…BEEN gettin’ murdered in California – BEEN gettin’ murdered in New York – BEEN gettin’ murdered in Illinois – BEEN gettin’ murdered in Florida – BEEN gettin murdered in Texas…ETC; by all kinds of weapons – – – INCLUDING ‘assault’ weapons.
Black fatalities by assault weapons ACROSS THE COUNTRY (and over the past 3 DECADES) number in the THOUSANDS…AND the victims were of ALL AGES..young / adolescent / adult, etc.
but when a few White kids (IN COMPARISON) get killed the same way Blacks have been getting killed for DECADES, all the sudden the gun-control debate is at a FEVER PITCH.
Black people are the ROUTINE victims of gun-violence in this country – but public policy only gets widespread mass-media & government scrutiny when the same violence consumes a mere FRACTION of White people?
by comparison, White deaths are an OUTRAGE and Black deaths are rarely national news-worthy….even if they number in the THOUSANDS over decades – – – or in the HUNDREDS per YEAR (IN A SINGLE CITY)
