Yes black crime is out of control. But it's not PC to point it out. The media believes that black males have a bad image already and it will hurt them as a race to get jobs. You only hear about black crime on local news. But not that black crime is a problem only the crime itself. It's not reported nationally that a black crime wave is a huge problem.
