Christian Science Monitor speaks out about black violence.


From Christian Science Moniter….

Growing youth violence in the United States will not be resolved until we find the moral courage to address the racial issues that underlie it.

During a Chicago school visit earlier this month to the site where a black honor student was beaten to death by a mob of black students, Attorney General Eric Holder stated that growing youth violence in America is not just “a black problem,” but a problem for all races.

White and black liberals blame this disparity on a racist society that misinterprets and discriminates against black culture.
