SHOCK!!! SHOW-ME DEADLY REPUTATION: MISSOURI NAMED MURDER CAPITAL OF AMERICA FOR AFRICAN-AMERICANS!!!
A shameful stat that's also frightening starts the day . . .
Newsmax: Missouri Named Murder Capital of America for African-Americans
"The Washington D.C.-based group found Missouri’s rate of African-American murders — about 34.86 per 100,000 black residents — was more than seven times the overall national rate of 4.42 per 100,000 in 2010.
The vast majority of victims nationwide, 83 percent, were shot and killed with firearms, primarily handguns. In Missouri, 91 percent of victims were killed with guns, the study revealed."
Again, this points to a lack of local action/concern/cooperation given that bigger, better cities have addressed this problem while this part of flyover country remains a killing field for people of color.
