    I feel like the term Black on Black crime is false because people of all colors commit crime and they usually commit them largely against people who look like them. So I think this term is another situation in which a negative narrative has been attributed to Blacks.

      I agree. Most violent crime is committed by white people according to the Department of Justice. (Google the DOJ’s report titled ‘Race and Hispanic Origin of Victims and Offenders, 2012-15’.)
      Yet, we never hear about white on white crime. Violence is a very real U.S. phenomenon. Violence in majority Black neighborhoods is how U.S. violence plays out in a large city setting. However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t need to come up with very viable solutions to keep more of our young and not so young people alive.
