On Power Talk with Lorraine Jacques-White we talked about crime in the black community. Our focus was on the reasons why black men kill, and should black-on-black crime be a national or local issue. Our special guest were Marcus Coleman of the National Action Network, and Tio Hardiman of Chicago Cease Fire International.
We looked at Chicago, a city that represents the future of many black communities around the country. Yesterday, the city of Chicago murder rate rose to 400, and CBS Channel 2 did an exclusive interview with a group of young black men who live the street/gang life. They allowed us to see life through their eyes, and gave reasons why they kill.
One of the young men stated that “Killing is the Solution to Street Violence”.
