The shocking difference in how blacks and whites are killed by guns

“…But one shortcoming of this approach is that it elides over the sometimes drastic differences in how different populations experience gun violence and gun ownership in their lives. The Brookings Institution’s Richard Reeves highlighted one stunning example of this in a recent blog post: Among whites, 77 percent of gun deaths are suicides. But among black Americans, 82 percent of gun deaths are homicides.”

            I just discovered it tonight.
            I’m gonna be pretty busy for the next few days, so if I don’t post again before Christmas, I’ll take the opportunity now to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas.

          • Dlanor

            Thanks. Hope your work goes well and passes quickly. Have a jolly holly Christmas. I’m having family and relatives in, but it will be hard to break my fingers away from the interesting people at A.T.

            I’m driving 4 hours tomorrow to see some old friends, then getting back to family for Christmas, then another 4 hour drive to be with the wife after Christmas and to ring in the new year.
            A.T. is great, even if mostly for the commenters like yourself.
            I’m happy to see the BCF linking to that site from time to time. I try to send some of A.T.’s traffic here too. The Canadian right is OK, even of most of them don’t really have the gut understanding of freedom that many Americans do. It saddens me, to be honest.

            Canadians do not understand the “freedom” issue the same way Americans can and do because most Canadians have never experienced it firsthand. They THINK they have, but that is because they are taught to fel morally superior to Americans. We who straddle that divide with dual US/Canadian citizenship know this more acutely than most others.
