The real travesty that has gotten lost while the media has been targeting 2nd Amendment rights and Zimmerman is the fact that a large number of blacks have been murdered by other blacks. About 20 a day in fact.
Stand Your Ground laws helps people from the inner city with the rights to defend themselves. They are the ones disproportionately impacted by crime.
To update, in the 503 days between Trayvon dying, and the Zimmerman verdict, 10,865 African Americans have been murdered by other African-Americans.
To be exact, the shameful truth is that 93% of African-American murders are committed by other African-Americans. That is breathtakingly awful when you consider how incensed the African-American community is about the Trayvon tragedy, no matter what you believe about Zimmerman’s guilt.
Let’s do the gruesome math, not out of morbidity, but because it manifests the incredible self-centered insanity of people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
8,000-9,000 African-Americans are murdered each year.
93% of them by other African-Americans.
That’s 7,905 (from average)
That’s 21.65 murdered each day by other African-Americans.
