We've seen a rash of young African American males getting shot and killed by police. Then the attendant riots and disturbances take place. We see the Black community railing out about
young Black men being shot by White cops, Sometimes Black cops as was the case in Milwaukee.
My question is why doesn't the Black Community rail about Black on Black crime? I venture to
say that more Black people are killed by other Black people than are killed by white law enforcement. Furthermore, most all the young Black men killed by law enforcement are usually career criminals with a rap sheet that's as long as War and Peace. Upstanding citizens, they aren't. Why doesn't BLM, those racist bastards Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton EVER say anything about Black on Black crime? By the way, Al Sharpton borrowed money from a Mafia family to start his "ministry". Why is the NEVER say anything about it. To me it's hypocritical to raise hell about raising hell about Black people being shot by White law enforcement and we rarely if ever hear the Black Community say anything about Black on Black crime. Why is that?

"I venture to say"
You don't have to venture. It isn't even close. There are about 18,000 murders in the US a year. Over half of all murderers in the US are black and about half of murder victims are black. The vast majority of cases where a police officer kills a suspect is legitimate self defense, as was this case in Milwaukee, and so it was in Ferguson. There are only about 500 cases of legitimate self defense killings a year and most of those are not by police officers.
My next door neighbor, who is black, said something to me about black on black crime the other day. He came to talk to me about an attempted break in a few houses away by a black teenager who didn't live around here (he was arrested). My neighbor said, "I don't mean to sound racist, but if you see any young black men around here with tattoos or pants falling off of them, call the police. They don't belong here."4
