    1 Black Man Is Killed Every 28 Hours by Police or Vigilantes: How America Is Perpetually at War With Its Own People


    Police officers, security guards, or self-appointed vigilantes extrajudicially killed at least 313 African-Americans in 2012 according to a recent study. This means a black person was killed by a security officer every 28 hours. The report notes that it's possible that the real number could be much higher.

    The report, entitled "Operation Ghetto Storm", was performed by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, an antiracist grassroots activist organization. The organization has chapters in Atlanta, Detroit, Fort Worth-Dallas, Jackson, New Orleans, New York City, Oakland, and Washington, D.C. It has a history of organizing campaigns against police brutality and state repression in black and brown communities. Their study's sources included police and media reports along with other publicly available information. Last year, the organization published a similar study showing that a black person is killed by security forces every 36 hours. However, this study did not tell the whole story, as it only looked at shootings from January to June 2012. Their latest study is an update of this.

    These killings come on top of other forms of oppression black people face. Mass incarceration ofnonwhites is one of them. While African-Americans constitute 13.1% of the nation's population, they make up nearly 40% of the prison population. Even though African-Americans use or sell drugs about the same rate as whites, they are 2.8 to 5.5 times more likely to be arrested for drugs than whites. Black offenders also receive longer sentences compared to whites. Most offenders are in prison for nonviolent drug offenses.

    "Operation Ghetto Storm" explains why such killings occur so often. Current practices of institutional racism have roots in the enslavement of black Africans, whose labor was exploited to build the American capitalist economy, and the genocide of Native Americans. The report points out that in order to maintain the systems of racism, colonialism, and capitalist exploitation, the United States maintains a network of "repressive enforcement structures". These structures include the police, FBI, Homeland Security, CIA, Secret Service, prisons, and private security companies, along with mass surveillance and mass incarceration.
    Gee..."Malcolm X Grassroots Movement" !!! Who would have guessed????
    May the FORCE be with you!

    And not one shred of real evidence. I wonder what the ratio of how many blacks are killed by other blacks? Oh, and if this correlation is true, then perhaps the reasoning is that because blacks are more apt to break the law? Just a thought.

    ...And every time a cop kills one, it goes into the FBI crime stats as a 'Firearms homicide.'

    Hey DUmbass.......Self appointed vigilantes = Black-on-Black gang violence. If you weren't blinded by your racism (if non-white) or self hatred (if white) you'd figure this simple fact.....well, that and your incredible stupidity.

    It is NOT skin color but local/ethnic social contract. At least white people admit the existence of white trash and avoid them. Black people deny the existence of a black trash culture and blame their problems on white people.

    At least in the Pacific North West, there is no pragmatic difference between white trash and black trash. Sometimes it is visually impossible to tell the difference. "Black" is self-designated.

    And, the report doesn't make a distinction for justifiable homicide. How many of those shootings were self defense by the cops, or by armed citizens? Almost all, according to the stats:

    I'm surprised that this comment was permitted to stand.

    did not read that report thoroughly. You skewed the statistics to fit YOUR model. Don't get me wrong, on reflection I WILL NOT deny that black males in certain circles are very vicious toward each other, which I do ascribe to a lot of residual self-hate because of this racist culture, but your 93% is high and not to be believed especially after I read your link report. Example: 14 year old with puppy in hand is subject to choke hold because he gave a "dehumanizing stare" to to a local security enforcer? Trayvon Martin 17 year old, unarmed, got shot and killed because he was deemed NOT to fit into the neighborhood has was shot and killed in(profiled is the word) Stop and frisk law in new york city has impacted blacks much higher than whites. (racial profiling are the words). Please, apologists and scape goaters for this racist culture just perpetuate the problem and don't solve a thing
    Apparently Trayvon and the boy with the puppy make up at least 8% of black murder victims. I can't even come up with a goofy explanation for what the stop and frisk law has to do with how many black victims are murdered by black people.
