    Junkie Children from St. Petersburg

    Photos made by Willycat in St. Petersburg of children using heroin. Photos were made 10 years ago, so some people suppose that today there is a big probability that those kids are not with us

    Five Myths About Crime in Black America—and the Statistical Truths

    In the wake of Trayvon Martin’s death [and Renisha McBride and Jonathan Ferrell], we’ve seen a lot of discussion of the larger societal issues that play into how and when people are perceived as criminals. There were hoodies, there were marches, and there were frank talks from parent to child about how to minimize the danger of being a young person of color. On the other side, there were justifications of George Zimmerman’s actions: a smear campaign against Martin’s character, and plenty of writers explaining that statistically, blacks are simply more dangerous to be around.

    That framing ignores the realities behind the numbers. Here are five myths about crime and people of color.
