    It is a real shame that the vast majority of crimes committed toward black people are committed by black people. Since the beginning of the history of blacks in America, the start was one single black on black crime. Slave trading. Maybe it's just inbred in the people of African descent to hate their own people over others. I do not have that answer, just the answer to this growing problem.
