Any city where the data of gun violence is published, comes the truth of who is committing the gun violence.

Durham, North Carolina is no different. It’s a 49 percent white, 38 percent black city. And we learn how in 2020 just how much black lives truly matter, with 89 percent of those shot being black. Interesting, 97 percent of those suspects who have been caught for those shootings during the racial reckoning of 2020 were black.

Yes, 97% of suspects in 2020 Durham arrested for shootings were black. The city is 38 percent black… [‘We have to stop this cycle:’ Black families in Durham disproportionately impacted by shootings, CBS17.com, November 19, 2021]:

Sheryl Smith is a grandmother who is raising five children in Franklin Village, a low-income housing community in East Durham mostly made up of Black families.

While she is working to give her grandchildren the best life possible, she said gunfire continues to plague her community.

A couple of months ago, two people were shot in the parking lot right outside of their apartment.

Smith’s granddaughter, 11-year-old Na-Keria Bagley, said she hears gunfire in her neighborhood every other day.

“When we were younger, we were scared to sleep in our room, so we made pallets in the living room to sleep on until the shootings went down,” Bagley said.

Smith said gun violence is something her family has dealt with for years.

This November marks 16 years since Smith’s 18-year-old son Todd Douglas was shot and killed while walking home from the store in 2005.

“After my son was murdered, it has really changed my whole world,” Smith said. “We have to stop this cycle, it has to end.”

According to data from the Durham Police Department, Black families are disproportionately impacted by gun violence.

While only 37 percent of Durham’s population is Black, so far this year 89 percent of the people who have been shot are African American.

During 2020, which was a record-breaking year for shootings in Durham, 284 of the 318 people shot last year were Black.

When looking at the ethnicity of those committing the shootings, last year 76 out of the 78 individuals arrested for the shootings were African American.

“This is a systemic failure,” said DeWarren Langley, executive director of the Charles Hamilton Houston Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that provides mentorship to young boys and men of color.

“We have too many communities that lack resources and that then turns into engagement in other alternatives, like gangs and the drug enterprises, and that is what gun violence is a direct result of,” Langley said.

Langley said many Black students are dealing with economic disparities at home, and that can impact their schoolwork.

With just a simple analysis of the data when published by a city government with a sizable black population, we learn how nearly all gun violence in said city is committed by blacks.

Black lives matter?

97% of suspects in 2020 Durham arrested for shootings were black. The city is 38 percent black… the data shows otherwise. Black lives only matter when white people are force to sacrifice their civilization to the very responsible with returning it to the negro mean.

  1. 38% black is wayyyyyy past the point of no return. Try living in a city like that, no one says ONLY 38%, as the daily dysfunction is already off the charts. I believe a city starts to become unbearable to live in at about 8% black, once you’re past that it’s time to start looking for greener pastures.

  2. Black lives only matter when white people are force to sacrifice their civilization to the very responsible with returning it to the negro mean.

    Believe you meant “those”.

    Seriously, you need to find a copy editor.  Your own eyes aren’t sharp enough to catch these things.

    Yes, the problem is the white supremacist civilization system that does not provide sufficient resources to black coonmunities.

    It cannot possibly be that they are an invasive species that is maladapted to such a system.

    An invasive species is an introduced organism that becomes overpopulated and negatively alters its new environment. Although their spread can have beneficial aspects, invasive species adversely affect the invaded habitats and bioregions, causing ecological, environmental, and/or economic damage. Wikipedia

    Does she mean the cycle of bastardy?

  7. Its racist to point out that the statistics are in themselves racist because only racists use racist facts and evidence to show how racist they are because that’s what racists do, act like racists. Do any of you racists out there agree, you racists?

  8. Augustus says:

    The grandmother mentioned in the article said, “We have to stop this cycle. It has to end.”

    She thinks the problem is a cycle of violence. As usual, Blacks lack the mental acuity to see the forest for the trees. Her own family is a prime example of the real problem. It’s the welfare cycle. She has 3 generations of welfare recipients right before her in her own family.

    Sheryl Smith needs to call her baby mama’s and tell them grandma isn’t going to use her public housing apartment to raise another generation of hoodrats. Her children bore those niglets so it is up to them to raise them.

    Years ago I worked for a ( very ) short time at a public housing project in Richmond. It was actually pretty nice as it was new and the management ( Jewish) were trying to be good SJW. I was the property superintendent. It was full of negro baby mama’s. I found out quickly that my job was not 9-5 fixing the washing machines and A/C units but being paged at 1 o’clock in the morning to go and secure a front door that had been kicked in by a baby mom’s boyfriend. Once I was asked to go and replace a pane of glass in the baby mama’s bedroom window that had a bullet hole in it from the night before. I demurred and told the management that if the negroid who had fired that bullet the night before drove by and saw a white man in his baby mama’s bedroom replacing the glass might he not have a bullet for me?

    When will we see a headline stating blacks are disproportionately committing violent crime? Yeah, I know, that’s a silly question because the answer is “never.”

    “This is a systemic failure…”

    No, this is negro failure. Don’t blame others for black dysfunction.

    “We have too many communities that lack resources…”

    There it is, the inevitable whining for more gibs. How totally predictable. Where did more “gibs” from Whitey ever make any difference, except to enable the orcs to behave even more badly?

    The only “gibs” they should be given is a one-way ticket back to Mother(fkr) Africa.

    NO ITS DNA AND INDULGENCE FROM YT. blacks in 1960 were better behaved in USA.

    In all of history, there has never been a single society of negroes that was anything but horrifically crime ridden. The closest they ever got was a few places under European colonialism and a few places under Jim Crow in the USA.

    In every other instance, they revert to form and it’s a fool’s errand to pretend otherwise. Now we’ve sacrificed our nation–once the world’s greatest–trying to civilize then for several decades and what is the result? They’re worse than ever.

  12. Black students are dealing with economic disparities at home, and that can impact their schoolwork.

    The schools [imprison] the [black] kids for 6+ hours per day (the home school, middle class equivalent is 24 minutes). They spend, in the poorest parts of Raleigh, > \$20K per kid (the home school equivalent is ~\$2K). Nothing (positive) gets accomplished. That’s not a problem of “economic disparity”.

    The schools should admit their own incompetence and exit the picture. If they want try to save face, e.g. by blaming externalities, that’s fine by me.

    ““This is a systemic failure,” said DeWarren Langley, ”

    It’s not failure, it’s success to a huge degree. This is how the whole negro-coddling system was designed – Section Ape, EBT, reparayshuns an all dat, defund the po-po, and simply paying the worst examples to breed prolifically.

    Remove any legal consequences for bad behavior, throw in out-of-control barely functional educational institutions, and here we are.

    DeWarren was wrong talking about “systemic failure” – he should have called it “systemic racism“, and the world would have been his oyster…

    Santa Inc. was launched on the platform on Thursday, and has so far been subject to fairly terrible ratings.

  21. Decoy says:

    We can talk on and on about putting more thugs in prison but our prisons are already full. Additionally, they are very expensive and there are no statistics that indicate that young black inmates come out of prison prepared to be productive citizens. We have to face the fact that a majority of voters in most urban areas think that 3rd and 4th and 5th chances are preferable to the law and order sentencing pre 1960. There are still many areas of our country that are safe and our internal movement to those areas is what’s needed. Parts of Florida, Texas, etc. are gaining popularity simply due to the safety issue.

  22. I used to live out Durham way and would go into the city on weekends to shop and check out the scene. This was way back when Durham was still a civilized city. Now?

    “We have too many communities that lack resources and that then turns into engagement in other alternatives, like gangs and the drug enterprises, and that is what gun violence is a direct result of,” Langley said.

    Too many communities of vulnerable marginalized with streets gone wrong. And shots ringing out. And teens. Plenty of teens. With youths. Disparately affected. Or something.

    Please note the “lack” of resources after half a century of war on poverty, civil rights, affirmative action, corporate minority contracts, ad etcetera.

    Of course, a rational approach would be to compare black communities with communities of other races and see if they engage with gangs and drug enterprises to the same degree. Compare the rates of “gun violence” among them. Then come to the appropriate conclusions about the racial causes of violence.

    That would be the rational approach. Not to be found in Black Run America.

    We can talk on and on about putting more thugs in prison but our prisons are already full. Additionally, they are very expensive and there are no statistics that indicate that young black inmates come out of prison prepared to be productive citizens.

    If we can’t execute them, we need to add “denaturalization and exile” as one of the options for habitual criminals.

    I understand that one of the problems faced by towns which host prisons is that the famblies of criminals move there to be able to visit more conveniently, bringing crime and other dysfunction with them.  Getting them to move to Africa instead would improve this country considerably.

  29. @usNthem

    Though I agree, I suspect that you cannot expect fear of retribution from humanoids who cannot conceive of the future.  You can likely beat fear into them if you flog them for misbehavior from childhood, but childhood is when you must start.  You must also record their transgressions and flog their baby-mamas if they object.  Pain is the only thing they understand.

    This is the curse of living with African’ts.

    In every story about Timothy Simpkins, the negro who shot several students (all survived) there is no explanation of where/how he acquires the gun.

    Highly doubtful his wealthy folks will be charged with criminal negligence if it was their gun, improperly secured.

    My dad had a second location of his store in Lakewood Shopping Center in Durham in the early sixties that I spent some time at. Durham was not all that civilized even then and had its reputation in surrounding locales.

Plus while groids may only buy a bottle of booze like that once a week, they are buying blunt wraps at least once a day.

  49. @Vinnie O

    That the 38% number is only those they know of who responded to the census. It doesn’t include the ones just passing thru town to sell drugs, pimp women, on the run from the law, out of town felons shacked up with baby mamas or relatives, the homeless, or other drug addled drifters.

    If these negroe primates would get jobs and quit mooching off of white people via EBT, Section 8 housing, Welfare, TANF, SNAP,WIC…..dey community might habs some resources.
