Harry Belafonte Blames White America For Black America’s Gun Violence

At the NAACP Awards, Harry Belafonte said, “White America discusses the Constitutional issue of [gun] ownership, while no one speaks for the consequences of our racial carnage.” What a disgustingly racist remark.

Harry Belafonte condemns “White America” and pleads for Civilian Disarmament

  • Firearm homicide is the leading cause of death for African Americans ages 1-44.¹
  • African Americans make up nearly 13% of the U.S. population, but in 2009 suffered almost 24% of all firearm deaths – and over 54% of all firearm homicides.²

[Black Americans] don’t want to control the guns used by black criminals in America — which would save a lot of black lives. Black America does want to control the guns owned by white people for self-defense…which may also save a lot of black lives, at the expense of White victims.

Walter Williams writes

Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered. Ninety-four percent of the time, the murderer is another black person. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Using the 94 percent figure means that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks. Though blacks are 13 percent of the nation’s population, they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims. Nationally, black homicide victimization rate is six times that of whites, and in some cities, it’s 22 times that of whites. Coupled with being most of the nation’s homicide victims, blacks are most of the victims of violent personal crimes, such as assault and robbery.

The magnitude of this tragic mayhem can be viewed in another light. According to a Tuskegee Institute study, between the years 1882 and 1968, 3,446 blacks were lynched at the hands of whites. Black fatalities during the Korean War (3,075), Vietnam War (7,243) and all wars since 1980 (8,197) come to 18,515, a number that pales in comparison with black loss of life at home. It’s a tragic commentary to be able to say that young black males have a greater chance of reaching maturity on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan than on the streets of Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Oakland, Newark and other cities.

The rate of gun injuries was 10 times higher for black teens than for white teens. The leading cause of death among black teens ages 15 to 19 in 2009 was gun homicide.

Young black males die from gun violence at a rate 2.5 times higher than Latino males, and eight times higher than white males.

Is the Second Amendment the problem?

Or is Harry Belafonte still bananas after all these years?

  1. Sam S.- a black man says:

    The video clearly shows that Mr. Belafonte has had and will always have an agenda against ALL white people. He NEVER speaks of black on black crime, unprotected sex for black woman, stay in school, complete your education, turn in your guns, stop doing drugs, respect your parents, respect who you are by doing the right thing, get along with all races, etc. His speeches are all about inequality and injustice. He has much to learn and he should knock that very large racist chip off his OWN shoulder.

  2. African American news says:

    Spot on with this write-up, I honestly think this web site needs a lot more attention.
    I’ll probably be back again to read through more, thanks for the info!

  3. Deadbeat says:

    White American gun ownership is NOT the cause or an issue of the Black “racial carnage”… this racial carnage also includes Black-on-White victims!

    Here is what we need to avoid: We need to avoid White blaming Blacks and Blacks blaming Whites. Whites need to understand that Blacks as are indoctrinated as their White “Christian”; Zionists brethren.

    Blacks like Belafonte came of age during the Civil Right era and his mentor was the Communist Paul Robeson. Many blacks during the 1930s joined the Communist Party believing that there were "Whites" who were actually concerned and wanted to ally with Blacks over issues that black people were sensitive too like racism, and lynching. Only what Blacks views as “white allies” were actually Zionists.

    Since Belafonte has long ties with the Left and the Jews it is natural when he speaks of issue of concerns about the Black community it is going to be framed in terms of "White supremacy" rather than Jewish supremacy.

    There is only two Black organization that address the issue of Jewish power — The Nation of Islam (NOI) and the New Black Panther Party (NBPP). Neither of which has a large following of Blacks. While the NOI is perhaps the most approachable they too are steep in a kind of Black Nationalism that can be considered the flip-side of Christian Identity. Both want to claim, like the Jews, they are the children of Israel. I think we need to avoid such rhetoric. The NBPP is too volatile and has a good deal of animus towards Whites. Therefore neither makes sensible allies. But for the most part the mainstream Black leadership are in the pockets of Jewry.

    There are individual pockets of Black that know what time it is and know that Jewry is the real source of their problem and not White people. A lot of Black are Christians themselves and have a lot more in common with White folks and support Christian values themselves.

    Therefore I believe that an alliance can be truly formed among 3rd position folks and Blacks. I believe that Lerora Fulini attempted such an alliance during the 1990's with the former Perot supporters. She was blasted and condemned by the "Black Leadership" and the Left.

    There is a general distrust has to be overcome. But this distrust in the awful residue resulting from Jewish entanglements

  4. NYCProducer says:

    Read the entire speech before you go accusing Belafonte of 'blaming whitey'. His remarks SPECIFICALLY called on the Black community – the leaders, legislators and the churches – to address the issues of the gun, unemployment, youth incarceration – he ended his speech with a plea to the NAACP and the people in the room and watching to do something for "our children".

    • American3P says:

      There is no speech to “read”… listen to what he says.

      The group most devastated by America‘s obsession with guns is African Americans…

      White America discusses the Constitutional issue of [gun] ownership while no one speaks the consequences of our racial carnage…

      White American gun ownership is NOT the cause or an issue of the Black “racial carnage”… this racial carnage also includes Black-on-White victims! Belafonte does not discuss the effect and numbers of Black-on-White deaths and shootings which is part of that carnage!

  5. HJ11 says:

    One can never understand the "human condition" until one leaves the childish myths of there being "one race, the human race," behind.

    Race is to human as breed is to dog. No one in their right mind would ever discuss dogs without also discussing breed. The same principle applies to humans, and we must get beyond the fear of being called racists to intelligently discuss such things.

    But, even more, and just to go deeper, the correct term for the different major groups of humans is not really race, but subspecies. We White ones are one of the subspecies of humans. And, a subspecies is a group that is on its evolutionary path to becoming a separate species–but only so long as there is no gene flow from other subspecies.

  6. gatdug says:

    Blacks blame “White America” for everything. The leaders, legislators, you speak of are in the CBC, promoting corruption and legislation to keep you dependent on the government. The Church, you ask? Being legislated and mandated away from their faith by our President. Blacks in America have been gunning each other down in inner city “gun free” zones — put there I estimate to try to keep Blacks from killing each other, obviously to no avail. Could be a major cause for the disproportionate prison population. Why do blacks kill each other more than any other ethnic group in America? You’ve done nothing wrong — it’s Whiteys fault.

  7. WhiteRabbit says:

    In the 60's anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white countries to open their borders to non-white immigrants. Then anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white people to "integrate" or face consequences for being "naziswhowantokill6millionjews." Now anti-whites are counting down the days until ALL and ONLY white children become minorities and eventually extinct EVERYWHERE. It's Genocide. "Anti-racist" is a codeword for anti-white.
