The Violence Policy Center made a big deal out of Missouri topping the chart for 2009 with a black murder rate of 34.72 per 100,000 blacks, and capped it with their usual cry about access to guns being the cause.
They ignore the fact that 215 citizens are alive because of access to guns who most likely would be dead with out one. They also fail to point out that in the vast majority of cases it is blacks murdering other blacks. In fact, the rate of murder of whites by blacks is higher then the rate of murder of blacks by whites. Black on black crime is the problem. Its not about race though, its about culture. The liberal political sphere has successfully destroyed the black family in America. Young boys growing into men with no mentoring from with in their family is a serious problem. Instead these men are mentored by the street, by thugs thieves pimps and drug dealers, the men who are the hero's, the ones with money. Fatherhood has been all but eliminated in too many black areas, and just like the juvenile elephants in Africa that rampage when they have no adult leadership, the problem is present among humans whether they be white or black.
Liberals have nearly succeeded in destroying the black family through the "gifts" of welfare and housing programs that rewarded women with no man in their life. We need to rebuild family, and no just in the black community. It does not matter if some one is white black, brown or what ever, a child raised with out two parents is a child at risk. Much longer, and America will not recover.
