I can't help but wonder, "When will people STOP thinking this is a 'Black on Black' issue?"
*Footnote: Chicago homicide rate is down 2% for this time frame in 2020. A reason for the drop was a less violent June where Chicago saw a 20% drop in homicides compared to last year (98 instead of 78), a 13% drop in shootings (416 compared to 363) and an 8% decrease in shooting victims (540 compared to 499).
The ages of the victims (in this report, are shockingly young. And many of them.)
(I used Chicago simply because that's the geography location that I'm personally involved with via volunteerism. It appears that Chicago is one of the few cities that can claim a decrease in homicides, while still having an uptick/surge of violent crime. More bullets, less dead bodies, still godawful.).
