What – me worry?
Remember that the primary purpose of government and newspapers is to scare you.
Charlotte has become very racially segregated, largely encouraged by a gerrymandered “all black” 12th Congressional district. The area to the North of downtown and West of I-77 is almost entirely black. The area South of downtown and East of I77 is almost entirely white, with a couple pockets of Hispanics.
The two homicide dots in the “white” part of town in the last 6 months – one was a 70 year old man shooting his 68 year old wife in a murder-suicide. The other was a 20 something man who shot his “crazy” father accidentally in the leg. Neither was shooting by a stranger.
Facts are what they are.
