NY Times: Counter-Protesters Were Armed:  The violence in Charlottesville last weekend and the death caused by what appears to be a deranged neo-Nazi has appropriately focused national attention on the despicable views held by some on the fringe right.  A piece by Farah Stockman of The New York Times reports on the counter protest organized to confront the white supremacists who organized the rally.  Masked members of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, some carrying weapons, showed up to engage in violence.  Similar protesters showed up last February at U.C. Berkeley to shut down a talk by Milo Yiannopoulos, setting fires, and attacking people, ditto for a talk by Heather MacDonald at Claremont McKenna College last June, and a small white supremacist rally in Sacramento last summer.  In all of these cases the protesters initiated the violence.   Bob McManus of the City Journal wrote this piece on how the police handled things in Charlottesville.     

Rate of Black Homicides:   A recently released article by Alex Berezow of the American Council on Science and Health reports that the rate of black homicides is nearly quadruple the national average.  Specifically the homicide rate per 100,000 is 20.9 for blacks, 4.9 for Hispanics, 2.6 for whites and 5.7 for all races.   BlackMurder.png
