On Gun Crimes in the USA

Black-On-Black Crime?

Due to the Ferguson fiasco, every now and then I’ll hear someone try to pretend that black-on-black crime in the USA is some crazy rumor. That’s a shame.

Black On Black Oppression

Since all hospitals and police stations are required by law to report crimes to the FBI, the FBI’s numbers are the […]
