Between 1980-2008, African-Americans were six times more likely than whites to be victims of gun violence and seven times more likely to kill with guns than whites, according to the Justice Department
African-Americans represent a mere 13% of the US population yet more than 50% of federal prisoners are black. In Chicago, blacks make up about 33% of the city's population, but they accounted for nearly 78% of the homicide victims through the first six months of 2012. Americans, especially black Americans, have come to accept blacks killing other blacks as normal.
