New Orleans Mayor Calls Black-on-Black Crime ”Unnatural’
New Orleans Mayor Mitch J. Landrieu is not satisfied with the way that people do not address the severity of murder within the black community. Landrieu takes offense to the lack of concern that society shows for black on black crime and pushes for people to give the subject their attention.
Landrieu is equipped to address the issue of violent crime as the city that he runs had a violent crime rate that was 80% higher than any other crime rate in the country in the year 2009. Landrieu’s interest in the subject promotes a side to the problem that cannot go unrecognized. Landrieu’s stance addresses the fact that this is not just a black issue; its an american issue.
In his recent speech during McDonald’s 365 Black Awards, Landrieu took to the podium to speak out against these heinous actions against humanity. He offered a perspective that should challenge many people to change their perspective on what is a tolerant way of thinking. Landrieu said, “If 199 white guys killed each other the world would stop. If the Klu Klux Klan killed 199 black guys the world would stop and people would still be talking about it. But for some reason because it’s young guys killing young guys, they want to put their heads in the sand and don’t want to talk about it. I’m telling you it’s unnatural and it’s not something that we’re supposed to tolerate in this country.”
Landrieu’s statement sums up the issue entirely.Society not being interested in black-on-black crime suggests that it is expected to be common place within our structure. Black-on-black murder has been considered a result of many factors that exist within the black community. Gang wars, like those in Chicago, are driven by the collapse of housing projects resulting in enemies residing next door to each other after they have been reallocated. Teenagers lack access to summer jobs, leaving them vulnerable to crime and other shady activities. There is also a lack of adult male role models in the community, leaving the male youth without a moral compass. Landrieu’s speech address an issue that is the result of some of these factors and that needs to change for the better in the our community.
