Black Lives Matter?

What if I told you something was the leading cause of death of young black men and that no one was interested in doing anything about it? What if I told you even the black community was largely indifferent. Well that cause of death is homicide, largely cause by gangs in historically black neighborhoods across the country. Why do the news media not cover the funerals of these innocent victims? Why does the Black Lives Matter movement ignore the issue but focus solely on police violence which accounts for a tiny fraction of the deaths. I wish I knew the answer. Written by Paul Dribin

Violence Prevention in St. Louis

I am happy to see attention paid to the violence in St. Louis. Some of our medical centers are providing special interventions for victims of violence in an effort to cure the problem. Hospitals have hired extra social workers to provide support and assistance to victims of violence and their families. Good effort. Written by Paul Dribin
