There’s no such thing as “black-on-black” crime. Yes, from 1976 to 2005, 94 percent of black victims were killed by black offenders, but that racial exclusivity was also true for white victims of violent crime—86 percent were killed by white offenders. Indeed, for the large majority of crimes, you’ll find that victims and offenders share a racial identity, or have some prior relationship to each other. What Shapiro and others miss about crime, in general, is that it’s driven by opportunism and proximity; If African-Americans are more likely to be robbed, or injured, or killed by other African-Americans, it’s because they tend to live in the same neighborhoods as each other.
fucking thank you
because I’m tired of white folks throwing that black on black crime bullshit at me(via lullabysounds)
Anonymous asked: Katy Perry can wear her hair how ever the fuck she wants to????? Like stop making everything seem like it's racist?????? It's a hairstyle for gods sake??????
I’m having a really fucking awful night and I don’t have the energy to explain to you because I’ve already responded to your idiot peers but I’m just gonna go off and let you know you people are fucking terrifying. I’m not making anything seem racist, it IS racist. It’s not just about her hair. It’s the whole fake fucking image so many white pop stars are trying on and the profiting off of a culture that was shamed and laughed at and mocked and deemed inappropriate and raunchy and uneducated and STILL is if done by a person of color (NICKI FUCKING MINAJ) by the VERY white people who think it’s cool now
If what I have to say about race pisses you off : unfuckingfollow me. It is 2014 and you would still rather anonymously message me like I’m delusional in an attempt to silence me instead of opening your fucking eyes and see the truth in what I’m bringing to lightYour ignorance is dangerous and it scares the SHIT out of me
