“Black on Black Crime” tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


The relationship between race and crime in the United States has been a topic of public controversy and scholarly debate for more than a century.

The crime rate varies between racial groups. Most homicides in the United States are interracial—the perpetrator and victim are of the same race. Research shows that the over-representation of some minorities in the criminal justice system can be explained by socioeconomic factors as well as racial discrimination by law enforcement and the judicial system.

Black on back crime, we’ve heard it before. It is the most frequent response to any accusation against police brutality. While no life is inconsequential, the statistical evidence shows that—just as for blacks when it comes to black-on-black crime—whites are mostly victimized by other whites, with the vast majority of white murders committed by whites. This is because most victims of crime personally know their assailants.

On Sunday a beloved west coast rapper, who was a devout member of the Rolling 60s Crips street gang was killed in broad daylight, by a known assailant. Media outlets are reporting, the two had exchanged intense words prior to the rapper being shot and killed. Were the mere words exchanged the real motive behind the killing? What is the cause and the consequences?

  1. Inside and out, what a beautiful brother Nipsey was. Although, I can’t name one of his songs. I can say, I became intrigued by his philanthropy and advancement for his people and community . He died young and life was cut short. But while he was on this Earth, he did so much tho.
    His life was certainly not in vain. Rest in peace Mr. Nipsey Hussle. 😥

  2. Having lost loved ones to gun violence, and just in general, I can attest to that empty saddening, maddening feeling.

    It’s a hole that’ll never be filled. A pain that’s too deep to quantify with words. Sometimes memories are comforting, sometimes they’re painful.

    I believe each and every person that says they’re still in shock from Nip’s passing, because I feel it too.

    We feel the greatest amount of emotional empathy for his children and significant, and his family. Just imagining the unimaginable sorrow they feel is too much. My prayer is that they are able to live how he wants them to. They’ll never fill the void of his absence, but prayerfully they will get to a place of peace.

  3. Only read about him from March’s GQ article. I loved how he sold his mix tapes for top dollar and that’s kind of what broke him through with Jay Z. Seemed like he had a very loving family, very tight knit, and I loved how he was giving back to the community. Sucks.

    1. So if dude would have properly received the help he needed for his mental illness, maybe he wouldn’t have snapped and killed Nipsey senselessly. Smh 😡

  4. I notice women who never felt love is so jealous of Lauren. People wish so bad that she and him were married. Lauren is private.

  5. Trace are you taking this topic on the fact that Nipsey was killed this week by a black man? I’m curious because black men killing each other is over rated.
