Denying the reality can be fatal.
Violent crime in St. Louis is a black thing. And like the t-shirt says, we wouldn’t understand it.
But we can observe it.
And this much we know: The level of black violent crime is astronomically out of proportion. So is the denial. Not just in St. Louis, but also in Kansas City, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland: This is a very long list of cities big and small across the country.
Pick a crime: Black violent crime is 6, 10, 30, 50, 100 times greater than white crime. And if you want to throw Asians into the mix, multiply that by 10 times.
