the concern for "black lives matter" seems to be the number of gun homicides suffered by the black community, and the number of serious assaults inflicted upon blacks.
since 93% of the gun homicides suffered by the black community are inflicted upon them by their fellow blacks, and since serious assaults suffered by blacks follow a similar pattern, i have a modest proposal.
(it is made in the factual context that whites don't commit much gun crime by comparison, either by homicides or serious assault.) (you can look it up, it's all in the f.b.i. crime statistics.)
let's take all the guns away from blacks in the united states, since they commit most of the gun crime, and leave gun ownership in the white community intact, since whites, by statistical comparison, commit very little gun crime.
blacks don't like suffering gun crime, and gun homicides? fine, let us take the guns away from the black who are committing all the crime upon their fellow blacks, and leave the guns in the hands of whites who are in general law abiding.
as a matter of fact, take five or six of the cities in the united states that have majority black urban population and who suffer "political leadership" that is black controlled, and the united states ranks very low in gun crime in the world, especially homicide.
so, let's protect the blacks from those who prey on them, (that being other blacks), and take guns away from all blacks.

p.s. as you might have guessed, i am white, gun owning, and law abiding. to this point, anyway. who knows what the future portends.
if you don't like what i have said, screw you and the horse you rode in on. but the facts i allege are true, and they are proved by statistical analysis compiled by government agencies. if you don't believe me, look it up, if you are able.
for me, it comes down to this, and it is just this simple.-- i will not suffer the loss of my guns because blacks cannot govern their criminal behavior. if you don't like that, to hell with you.
update. 07.17.2016. 6 more police officers shot in baton rogue, louisianan, 3 of whom are dead and a fourth in critical condition as i type this. one assailant is dead, and two others presumed involved are at large. sad to say, but in all likelihood, the shooters will have been/are to be black.
i will repeat. i will not surrender my weapons under any circumstance, and certainly not for the misconduct of black miscreants. end update.
