While it is a fact that black males murder other black males at a much higher rate than white males who murder black males, those who use that rationalization to defend stand your ground laws and the George Zimmermans of this country are not seeing the forest through the trees. I can see the forest and I'm a middle class white male. Drug deals gone sour and gang warfare are most likely at the heart of the violence. But the mainstream media doesn't usually dwell on the social economic, and psycghological reasons why people do and deal drugs in the first place. Or, why black males rob convenience stores at a much higher rate than white males.
