Chicago and Black Criminality

| 3 Comments
Jason Riley has this article with the above headline in the WSJ:

"In the roughly 84 hours from 3:10 p.m. Thursday until 3:30 a.m. Monday, gunfire struck 82 people, 14 of them fatally," reports the Chicago Tribune. "Both tallies include two boys shot by police: a 14-year-old who allegedly pointed a long-barreled .44-caliber revolver at officers, and a 16-year-old who--after first eluding cops who had responded to a report of shots fired--allegedly refused officers' instructions to drop a .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun as he crawled out from beneath a car. That's right, a 14-year-old wielding a .44-caliber revolver and a 16-year-old with a semi-automatic handgun."

So here we go again. Another spate of shootings that feature, almost exclusively, young black and brown men. Another liberal clarion call for more gun control. And another collective dodge of the real problem, which is ghetto culture.

America does not have a gun problem. It has a bastardy/feral children problem.

As if the gun fires itself.

Our opponents pride themselves on "evidence-based sentencing" and evidence-based this and evidence-based that, but when faced with years of overwhelming evidence contrary to their criminals-are-victims ideology, they can't handle it. And don't.

The pathology that results from current black family structure and the resulting street culture will continue unabated. Progressives and the race-industry have no desire to address the problem head-on. If they did, Michelle Obama would be doing public service announcements bemoaning the fact that the percentage of black nuclear families is 16%.
