In the end, the only true way to address gun violence in America is to admit the racial dynamic to fatal and nonfatal gun violence in the USA. It’s that simple.

The Buffalo News was just capable of admitting those responsible for gun violence in the city – disproportionately impacting black people in Buffalo – are black. Not white supremacists, not white separatists, not white nationalists, not those clinging to white privilege nor maintaining systemic racism or implicit bias, but black people shooting other black people in the city of Buffalo.[Surge in gun violence disproportionately hits Buffalo’s Black residents, Buffalo News, October 2, 2020]:

Behind a boarded-up brick building on the corner of Jefferson and Glenwood avenues, blue balloons, purple flowers and stuffed teddy bears carry the memory of a young mother of three killed a week after her 23rd birthday.

Messages of love scrawled in blue, red and black marker hang on pieces of poster board. On a nearby sidewalk, 37 tealight candles spell out “Ray.”

On Sept. 19, Rayshionna Johnson was killed and four others were shot near that intersection, in the second quintuple shooting of the year in Buffalo. All five victims were Black.

Gun violence in Buffalo continues to disproportionately affect people of color. So far this year, more than eight of every 10 shooting victims were Black.

Poverty in these neighborhoods is key factor, community activists say. So is access to handguns, often trafficked illegally from other states, they say. Buffalo Police Commissioner Byron Lockwood and activists both agree that more needs to be done to steer young people away from resorting to violence. Many of the shootings involve neighborhood gangs and are done in retaliation for previous shootings.

The shootings in Buffalo mirror what’s happening in other major cities across America and criminologists are still trying to parse out the role of the Covid-19 pandemic in the surge in violence. They also are happening as the Black Lives Matter movement has forced questions about race, racism and the U.S. criminal justice system.

The shooting at Jefferson and Glenwood was Buffalo’s second quintuple shooting in less than a month.

Lockwood said police investigations often find one individual responsible for three or four shootings.

“It’s a very small number of people causing this havoc on the East Side,” Lockwood said. “The vast majority of people are law abiding citizens.”

Through the end of August, 217 people have either been injured or killed in a shooting in the city, according Buffalo Police Department data. That’s 82% higher than over the same period in 2019, according to a Buffalo News analysis of the data. It’s also about 35% higher than the average over that eight-month period from 2015 through last year, according to The News’ analysis.

For three straight months, the number of people shot each month exceeded 40 – in June, 41; then 48 in July; and 49 in August. Before 2020, the last time 40 people were shot in one month in Buffalo was July 2011, according to police data.

Through early August, the number of shooting victims in the city already eclipsed the total number of people shot last year.

“Young people, they don’t really have anywhere to go,” said Leroy Love, who runs a barbershop around the corner. “So when they meet up – it’s hundreds of them, usually – they’ll pick a block or something, have a party. Or if there happens to be a party, they’ll show up there, and something seems to go wrong.”

Or if there happens to be a party, they’ll show up there, and something seems to go wrong.”

It’s also established that a disproportionate percentage of people arrested are Black, both locally and nationally.

According to 2019 Census Bureau estimates, Erie County’s population is 79.3% white and 14% Black. During that same year, 46% of those arrested in the county were white and 43% were Black, according to statistics compiled by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services. For felonies, 34% of people arrested were white, 54% Black. Broken down to violent felonies, 23% were white and 64% Black.

Buffalo police in July began including some data on the race of shooting victims in documents released to The Buffalo News.

Residents who live in some areas of the city face disproportionate levels of gun violence. A 2016 News analysis of shooting data showed the entire East Side, which accounts for only a third of the city’s population, accounted for about three-quarters of all shootings in the city from 2011 through 2016.

Gunfire nearly every night

At the memorial to Rayshionna Johnson, some of the candles carry messages including “Rest in peace, RayRay,” and “Love you, CrayCray.” On a board covering a window on the back wall of the building, a message written in red marker reads “Life is precious people; this is not a joke! Ray is gone & 3 babies will feel the pain forever… Put down the guns, please!”

It won’t take revolutionary acts to cause seismic change in social policy in not just Buffalo, but all of America; it will only take the admission black gun violence – be it fatal or nonfatal – represents the overwhelmingly majority of gun violence in the nation, and that social policy regarding the 2nd Amendment and the African-in-America population must reflect this fact.

Such an admission though, is revolutionary indeed. It upends nearly a century of egalitarian thinking.

    “Poverty in these neighborhoods is key factor, community activists say.”

    That’s complete nonsense. In fact, the OPPOSITE is more likely true: violence drives away everybody with enough money to move.

    Also note that there is NO SUGGESTION that ANYONE made money from the shooting (e.g., none of the dead people were robbed). So, as with MOST violence in black neighborhoods, this lethal use of guns was for ENTERTAINMENT. And as long as individuals find MURDER to be the best form of entertainment, poverty rates are irrelevant.

  2. Exile says: • Website

    A rational framing of the debate regarding gun control and equal rights under the 2A would start by recognizing that 13 do 50 and demand:

    1) separation/freedom of association as a primary right and focus – essential to reducing the overall climate of resentment, paranoia, violence and the seeming inability of large segments of Black communities to tolerate regulation and policing that the rest of non-Black Americans believe to be necessary. If Black communities cannot accept the same standards as the rest of us, let them stand apart from us – and let them police their own as they see fit so long as their problems are contained to their own communities; and

    2) that Black communities must be subject to gun control and less lenient civil liberties, particularly as to criminal procedure, as a population that has proven unworthy of the level of trust and responsibility the Bill of Rights and its unfortunate over-extensions have presumed from them.

    Some would call this apartheid and I don’t shrink from the description, though I deny the false moral baggage that has been heaped on the label. I call it necessary.

    Let any who disagree explain how South Africa is better off today than it was in 1980.

    It should simply be illegal for any black to own a firearm, period. Of course it already is for felons, although the penalties for illegal possession are so pitiful, it doesn’t dissuade them at all. If those penalties were much more severe – say execution – the simians would eventually get the message. Unfortunately, in our current society, something this revolutionary is utterly impossible. Outlawing guns for law abiding Whites, on the other hand, is much, much easier…

I went to SUNY at Buffalo briefly. Considering the fact that lower New York State is largely comprised of deluded liberals, I’m not too surprised that an upstate and western New York paper was honest about this issue.

    Blacks have a broken culture. Black kids have nothing to do because there is no father at home to guide them. So their culture comes from the music and movies they are exposed to. They are essentially letting Hollywood choose the role models for their children with predictable results. There really isn’t a way to pass laws for this. That would have to be moral laws such as against divorce and adultery, which really aren’t that effective. Cultural problems are hard to fix, but it has to be done within the culture.

    Every proposition is based upon a set of assumptions. The argument against White Supremacy is that Whites are not superior. Really?

    What is meant by superior? Superior to whom?

    Violent criminality? Clearly, Negroes are superior at committing violent crimes.

    IQ? By definition, Euro-Caucasians have an average IQ of 100. Northeastern Asians such as Chinese and Japanese, 105. Jews, especially Ashkenazi Jews from Europe, 110. African Negroes, 80 with Pygmies at 55.

    Almost all advances in science and technology have been by Euro-Caucasians, especially Nordics . White Supremacy? Maybe there’s a case for it.

  17. That article is full of the same old BS evasions and deflections that you always find in stories about “gun violence”:

    -All five victims were Black. (They’re always the victims)

    -Gun violence in Buffalo continues to disproportionately affect people of color. So far this year, more than eight of every 10 shooting victims were Black. (“It’s happening to us more than whitey…cuz RACISM!”)

    Poverty in these neighborhoods is key factor, community activists say. (“Need mo money fo dem programs”)

    -So is access to handguns, often trafficked illegally from other states (Blaming the free states that respect their citizens’ rights for black violence and dysfunction and making a thinly veiled call for more gun control)

    -Criminologists are still trying to parse out the role of the Covid-19 pandemic in the surge in violence. (“Da Rona be causing da bilence!”)

    They also are happening as the Black Lives Matter movement has forced questions about race, racism and the U.S. criminal justice system. (The white man’s racism is at fault. Because blacks acted like choirboys before George Floyd’s fatal Fentanyl overdose drove them to start slaughtering each other)

    “It’s a very small number of people causing this havoc on the East Side,” Lockwood said. “The vast majority of people are law abiding citizens.” (The vast majority of WHITE people, maybe.)

    -“Or if there happens to be a party, they’ll show up there, and something seems to go wrong.” (Those damn guns start firing on their own again)

    -It’s also established that a disproportionate percentage of people arrested are Black, both locally and nationally. (Notice that they are “arrested” not “responsible”. The implication is that they are being unfairly targeted by police. And if they aren’t directly implying that, the language is left intentionally vague so it can be inferred)

    Gunfire nearly every night (Not “black thugs firing guns nearly every night”)

    So much parsing and deflection in this article. I’m not sure it is accurate to say that they “admitted” the truth.

    Most young people are poor. The parents might make a good living but they don’t share it with their children except to allow them to live in their house. Even ‘Trust Fund’ kids seldom get unfettered access to inherited wealth until they mature. I suspect there are more rich negroes under the age of 25 than whites because of pro sports and the music industry.

    I also don’t believe the ‘majority’ of negroes under 40 are law abiding. That might have been true a couple of generation ago but negro youth has been degenerating into feral hoodrats over the past 50 years.

  40. That problem, and all problems will take care of itself within 5 years.

    What you are describing is pre-60s Black America and it still had problems.

    In fact its problems spawned a lot of the 60s liberal thinking that assumed race didn’t exist and Whitey was to blame for everything.

    So what makes you think your plans wouldn’t just loop us back to then?

    Propagate the idea that anyone with a TV in his home is a loser.

    Banning TV doesn’t work with the internet. The worst of Black subculture is viewed online. Are we going to create a filtered internet for Blacks areas?

    Hollywood is a garbage industry but they no longer try to profit from gangster rap.

    Anyways this is all wishful thinking. Black leaders haven’t been able to propagate the idea that shooting = bad.

    The best solution is to hold Black criminals until they are around 26/27. A lot of the really stupid stuff happens between 18 and 24. Not necessarily talking prison either, just get them out of their environment. A military camp would be ideal but no one has the guts for that.

    I think a rap on the nose with a rolled up newspaper would be more appropriate and better received than your whimsical approach to ‘hearts and minds’ modification.

    For generations before the 60’s, the black issue was addressed on the QT. Everyone with a functioning brain recognized that we needed to remain separate of them and keep them in check.

    The leftist revolt of the 60’s launched all this crap upon us. There is no ‘correction’ to this. It can’t be rolled back by teaching them religion or social responsibility. They hadn’t learned it since the days of slavery and they’re not going to learn it now.

    A tight lid needed to be kept on them and that ended in the 60’s. Now, that genie is out of the bottle. An enemy has been released in our midst and we’re told repeatedly that it is not our place to do anything about it. Can’t fight. Can’t defend. Can’t not hire them, no matter how unqualified they may be. Now, can’t talk or think bad about them. Have to make allowances for their violent tendencies and murderous behavior.

  56. American Citizen 2.0 says:

    That line in the original news story “guns trafficked from other states” is a massive howler of a lie.

    The media in the major US city where I live is also using that same lie to explain gun violence among black people here. I have complained about it in letters to the editor of local papers every single time I see that repeated in a news story, which is often.

    Obviously we are dealing with a nationally organized campaign to promote that talking point “guns trafficked from other states”. Someone at the national influencer level should confront that lie directly but of course like with everything involving conservative values, civil rights, and constitutional rights, our right wing leadership just lets it slide and we lose over and over.

    In the city where I live, black people commit THOUSANDS of shooting every year. Almost every news story about such crimes will include the phrase “guns trafficked from other states” in order, apparently, to absolve black people from culpability for shooting each other, as if a gun was somehow transported on a magic carpet into the hands of a young black man at precisely the moment he was emotionally vulnerable enough to pull the trigger and had it not been for that magical sequence of events he would have never committed a crime at all.

    Point being, there is always some other reason why black people are committing such a ludicrous amount of violence. Obviously, we are all going to lose our second amendment rights because black people simply refuse to conform to any kind of laws so nobody can own a gun. There can’t be a gun anywhere within a million miles of black person (meaning you cannot own a gun) because otherwise it will, as if by magnetism, magically fly into the hands of black man who is powerless to resist the temptation to pull the trigger.

    But then it also has to be said that the mainstream media almost willfully refuses to report on what is actually happening at the street level with this violence because they always want to make black people seem like angelic beings who are cast about innocently by the vicissitudes of capitalist oppression being trafficked by white people from other states obviously. Were it not for the irresponsible white people selling firearms in other states, Wakanda would be peaceful and happy. We need to do something about those white people in other states who are causing all this violent crime!

    This entire topic is reported in such a deceptive way by the mainstream media that it completely destroys their credibility.

    in order, apparently, to absolve black people from culpability for shooting each other, as if a gun was somehow transported on a magic carpet into the hands of a young black man at precisely the moment he was emotionally vulnerable enough to pull the trigger and had it not been for that magical sequence of events he would have never committed a crime at all.

    GD Brilliant.. Not sure the deception could be explained any clearer.

    I wonder if you spoke in crayon would it help.

    This entire topic is reported in such a deceptive way by the mainstream media that it completely destroys their credibility.

    “Guns from other states” has been an excuse in Chicago and New York City for 40 years. Nothing new, but kudos to you for pushing back.

  62. 56 years since the CRA. It is not going to get any better for new generations.

    “Out of state” guns. A follow up will be a call for a Federal ban on gun sales to everybody, because one group tends to lack self control.

    It’s always someone/something else to blame.

    In olden days, killers would be put to death. In even older days, their family would be put to death, or tossed out beyond the pale of settlement to survive on their own.

    In a civilized society, some uncivilized behaviors cannot be tolerated.

    And, of course, nobody bothers to notice that those “guns from other states”, aren’t killing people in droves, in those “other states.” Must be some factor other than the guns. Hmmm, what could it be?

    I was going to say that the answer is the same old tired trope, total gun control. But the problem goes deeper. Until mr. negro wants to see change, things can only get worse. The situation won’t improve until those affected demand change. In the meantime give them free exchange clips, similar to needle swap programs. And help them on their way.

  65. Blacks are not just homicidal in the U.S. They’re also responsible for wildly disproportionate violence in Canada, the UK, Nordic countries, Australia, everywhere.

    There are exceptions. Some African countries such as Benin have very low per capita homicide rates, according to UN stats. It would be useful to know whether Beninese retain their low-violence culture when they move to other countries, or whether their violence rates immediately or eventually match the violence rates of other blacks. It would also be useful to know how much of that is dependent on whether they form their own communities or whether they mix with other blacks. This could tell us how much of these violent tendencies are cultural and how much is genetic.

    Modern Benin is not the same as the Kingdom of Benin, which was in what is now southern Nigeria.

    In the UK, Ghanaians use welfare/benefits slightly less than the average British person, whereas Somalis are super high welfare/benefits users. The most violent cultures are usually the biggest welfare/benefits users as well. There seems to be a culture of resentment and entitlement which is encouraged by Marxists.

    When Somalis with an average IQ of 68 are not as productive and don’t earn as much as White people with an average IQ of 100, Marxists refuse to face the fact that IQ is part of the reason. They insist that IQ is meaningless. They stir up resentment and violence by insisting lower earnings are caused by discrimination, not lower productivity.

    Meanwhile, in the most Liberal countries, over 90% of Down Syndrome babies are aborted on the basis that their average IQ is only 50, meaning they cannot do complex jobs. So suddenly IQ is real again. And Marxists are also fine with the US Supreme court saying low-IQ people cannot be executed because they don’t understand the consequences of their actions. Again, Marxists are fine with this, again IQ is real.

    Not so fast… only the faulty ones that let ‘shots ring out’ are allowed to be stolen by poor, unsuspecting blacks from the racist white plantation/gun owners and taken across state lines.

    Real Solutions:

    1. Discourage the glorification of “gangsta” culture and harshly punish anyone who embraces or encourages “gangsta” culture. Make it shameful to be criminal trash. Make this severe enough and nobody will want to be a criminal.

    2. Bring back the death penalty for child molestation, rape, and murder. Make it immediate, mandatory, and nonnegotiable. No exceptions. Ever. If you do the crime, you die and no amount of liberal whining will save you. Sure, a few wrongly accused might die, but millions of innocents will be spared becoming victims. Liberals hate facts and the fact is…this is a numbers game. The sickest criminals are too great in number and weak half measures are allowing their numbers to grow.

    3. Encourage actual education. Not brainwashing by public fools. Art, literature (not negrobonics, which is really just deep south redneck speech further bastardized by idiots), classical (not gangsta rap) music, and sciences. Heavily reward those who choose to become educated. With enough incentives, everyone who matters will seek to be educated, regardless of their race. Show everyone that true education is vital.

    4. This last one will anger people…

    Abolish child support. Too many sluts game the welfare system. Making babies is BIG business when it’s federally incentivized like it currently is, fathers are forced to pay for kids they never wanted (holes in condoms poked by greedy whores, etc.), and the amounts are no longer reasonable (these women get hundreds or even thousands per kid plus welfare perks like foodstamps in the hundreds of dollars, etc.). The state govts keep this going due to the profit they make from the federal incentives which are almost dollar for dollar.

    Also…family Court systems are hugely corrupt.

    If all the aforementioned changes were implemented, the worst crimes would become almost unheard of and unwed mothers would be very rare. …but liberals would rather sit back and watch society burn.
