How much of the homicide in the Wash DC metro area is NOT black-on-black?

I have no idea if the man who got shot is black or not. I hope he wasn't shot in his "manhood." That would hurt.

I will pray for him.

How many sexual predators, spouse murder for hire conspirators and money embezzlers are not white? See there is a stereotype for every race. What is the point of mentioning it?

@ged0386 - LOL! Very valid point. Why indeed.

Isn't most of it black-on-black? Young black men killing other young black men.

White-on-white homicide is nowhere near the rate of black-on-black homicide.

I'm sorry. I'm stating the obvious. Everyone knows this. Blacks & whites.

Was wondering...Sounded like 10 or more shots-lucky person, considering.
No cops for like half an hour-What's up DCPD, one night you keep the whole block up w/ your loud generators and search light and next night-MIA.

Someone always has to whine about the cops. They can't win. Think you can do better bfa1?

In predominantly white parts of the country it's the same thing and there are white folks shaking their heads at that. But regardless of color, it's usually always a senseless tragedy, which makes it worst.
