Who will speak out about the elephant in the corner, which is the inordinate level of violence that exists in many of these communities?
“I think there should be an outcry that 96 percent of the shooting victims in this city are black or Latino…There should be a huge outcry, but there isn’t.
“There doesn’t seem to be any major community response. Or demonstrations. We have not had a demonstration about this 3-year-old child. We haven’t had a demonstration about the level of violence. We’ve had demonstrations about virtually every other issue in this city except the level of violence, particularly in certain communities."
