We’ve heard a great deal about “the insurrection” and the relentless assault on the AAPI community by “white supremacists.” There has been a lot less attention paid to one of the largest spikes in homicide in decades.
“While federal lawmakers mobilized enormous resources—including thousands of National Guard units—to protect themselves following the riot on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6th, there has been less attention paid to last year’s wider surge of criminal violence in Washington, D.C., where there has been a 350 percent increase in carjackings.
New York City, for instance, saw a 97 percent increase in shooting incidents from 2019. And as in every other year, 2020’s violent crime wave was not equally distributed. Low-income, minority areas tended to suffer the most; the city’s official data shows that around 74 percent of shooting victims were African-American and 22 percent were Latino.
These statistics aren’t just numbers on a page; they represent real people whose lives were suddenly and abruptly upended by terrifying acts of violence.
Sadly, there is little evidence that 2020’s national violent crime wave is letting up. A New York Times analysis of FBI data found that “a sample of 37 cities with data available for the first three months of this year shows murder up 18 percent relative to the same period last year. …”
Black Lives Matter, amirite?
