DAILYKENN.com -- 'Self-cleaning oven' is a term some apply to the mafia as hitmen kill each other, saving law enforcement the trouble of making arrests.
The same could be applied to black neighborhoods in Indianapolis where 75 percent of homicide victims were black in 2018. 27.2 percent of the city's population is black.
161 homicides were reported in the city last year. That's a new criminal homicide record for Indianapolis; the fourth consecutive year the city has set a new record.
SBPDL.com noted that,
The Indianapolis Star can't bother to point out what's happening in the 28 percent black city when it comes to the rising homicide rate (each year continues to see the prior years record for homicides broken).
The Indianapolis homicide rate is clearly racial and reflects national trends that have continued for generations.
The FBI reports that 51.1 percent of homicides in the nation were committed by black offenders in 2015. 51.3 percent of homicides were committed by blacks in 2014. 52.2 percent of homicides were committed by blacks in 2013.
That's a trend.
Only about 12 percent of the nation's population is black. With few exceptions the homicides are committed by black men who comprise about six percent of the nation's population. Black males ages 18 to 49 comprise about four percent of America's population. That four percent commits about fifty percent of the nation's violent crimes.
Meanwhile, Gillette published a video ad portraying white males as a culture of "bullies". Americans believe Gillette and ignore the FBI's Bureau of Justic Statistics.
Indianapolis is not alone.
The Baltimore Sun reported that 217 blacks were killed in Baltimore in shooting deaths, while The Los Angeles Times said that 124 black victims were shot and killed in Los Angeles in 2018, and the Chicago Tribune reported 279 blacks were shot to death last year.In three of the largest cities in the country, 620 blacks were slaughtered with no outcry from leftist media pundits. There were no candlelight vigils or marches, no outrage from celebrity athletes or prominent leftist black leaders, and certainly no attention from the Democrats who control policy-making in those cities.

Social engineers and faith leaders propose their solutions. Most focus on government programs. Most miss the mark.
Considering violent criminals can almost univerally be profiled as (a) male, (b) age 18 to 49 and (c) range in IQ from mid-70s to low-90s, a solution emerges to violent black crime founded on the fact that intelligence is a heritable trait: If black people with IQs above 100 would make more babies while low-IQ blacks would procreate less, the violent crime rate among young black males would decrease.
That may smack of eugenics. Eugenics is defined as "the science of improving a human population by breeding to increase the occurrence of desirable heritable characteristics."
Some consider eugenics to be immoral and unethical. None, however, can honestly consider eugenics unscientific or discredited. It works.
Government programs won't work because they fail to address the real problem: genetics.
• The problem isn't poverty. The problem is genetics. Poverty is an expression of the problem.
• The problem isn't racism. The problem is genetics. Perceived racism (Jim Crow laws) is a response to the problem.
• The problem isn't absence of fathers. The problem is genetics. The absence of fathers is a symptom of the problem.
• The problem isn't a dearth of spiritual insight. The problem is genetics. White atheists with IQs over 100 commit violent crime at a much lower rate than black males.
Note there is no correlation between dark skin and violent crime. Were that true, violent crime would increase among white people who tan themselves in the summer sun.
The profile, again, is comprised of gender, age, and intelligence.
|IQ/income correlation is close to 0.5, which is a nice tidy number – any higher would be an strong argument for biological determinism. — Stefan Molyneux|

In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
This passage of scripture has gripped me since 1994. Just four short years into my ministry, I came across this stark depiction of a mother weeping for her children who are being mercilessly and systematically slaughtered.
The biblical account was written hundreds of years ago. It is Matthew’s account of the “Slaughter of the Innocents” in Bethlehem and is seen as a fulfillment of the prophecy given in Jeremiah 31:15. Rama is the geographical location. Rachel is the mother who would not be comforted from her trauma and sorrows. And the children she is weeping for are her own.
It’s 2019, the geographical location is Indianapolis. Rachel is still weeping. The children are our own. Indianapolis has experienced another record-breaking year with a total of 161 homicides being reported. For the fourth year in a row, young Black males under age 25 are the victims in more than 34 cases. Three of every four homicide victims were Black.
Since 2014, young Black males have been four times more likely than anyone else to be victims of homicides. Black male homicides outpaced all other races in every age category. The highest percentage of those killed are in the 18- to 24-year-old age range.
We are experiencing a Black male epidemic. We are in the midst of a Black male crisis. With every Black male murdered, another mother and father are forced to bury their young son. In many cases the victim is also a parent. Thus, another Black child will grow up without his or her father. When the case goes unsolved another murderer remains loose on our streets. Since the perpetrators are often Black males, prison or death awaits them. Rachel is still weeping.
Over 28 years ago, the murder of a young Black male by another Black male, who faced 60 years in prison because of the crime, compelled me to leave a comfortable and lucrative corporate position and devote my life to serving others and working to save our young Black males.
I can’t count the number of mothers, fathers, family members and friends that I’ve consoled, preached funerals for, and written letters and cards to, on both sides of these tragedies. I can’t count them. I’ve grown tired of these senseless tragedies.
I’m tired of young lives being lost. Tired of funerals. Tired of mothers, fathers and family members crying over loved ones they will never see again. Tired of the court cases, plea bargains and seeing our young Black males sentenced to decades in prison.
The Black community must stand up cohesively, and Black men must be in the forefront of the movement to save our Black sons. Our community must bond together like never before. We must find ways to build on the work we are already doing.
We owe it to Aaron, Rodney, Earl, Terrell, and the countless other young Black males who were snatched away from us long before they ever reached their fullest potential.
Yes, Rachel still weeps. She wept in the time of the prophet Jeremiah. She wept in the time of Jesus. And she still weeps in 2019 for her children who are being systematically destroyed. Rachel has been weeping for centuries, and she will continue to weep until the senseless slaughtering ceases.
