At least this time you used the euphemistic term "gangs." In the past I've seen you and others say "if we exclude black on black crime." Either way it's irrelevant. Gang members are overwhelmingly American. Blacks are American. You can't exclude either to get the result you want. Our violent crime rate is incredibly high compared to Europe's, particularly our violent gun death rate.
You can look at it in several ways - Removing Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago and New Orleans from the statistics, and you have a national average for violent crime pretty close to other 1st world countries. The same with removing black-on-black statistics, or gang-related stats (and gangs are not all black BTW). The inescapable conclusion for any thinking person is that the violence in the US is not pervasive throughout the country, but concentrated in certain segments of society and certain cities.
And let's keep things in perspective. While a lot of violence is now much more "in-your-face" due to social media and 24 hour news cycles, gun homicides are sharply down over the past 20 years or so.
Trump has a following because this country never really came to terms with its bigotry. Rather than deal with it, the Republican party pandered to racists and assorted other bigots for votes. Trump has exploited this anger, and that is why he has a following. We all need to stop pretending that racism and bigotry aren't the heart and soul of Trump's support.
Oh please. Sure there are some assholes on the Trump side, but they are a small minority - most are people simply fed up with a government out of control, serving their own purposes, and not fulfilling the most basic of governmental obligations - such as border security. And the biggest racists in the current climate are the BLM-related groups that Democrats are pandering to. Have you seen their demands? It is 100% racist, and I have not heard any democrats denounce it.https://policy.m4bl.org/
Democrats haven't been this angry since we took away their slaves.
