Gun Outrage in Black and White: Why Parents Matter

The Lord of the Flies, a profound work of fiction, tells the story of British choir boys marooned on an island after a plane crash at sea. Without adult supervision some of the boys turn into homicidal monsters. I think this story tells us a fundamental truth about human nature: young boys are savages by nature, and it is the responsibility of parents, especially fathers, to civilize them. Unfortunately, most young blacks today lack the civilizing influence of fathers; ergo, they act like savages.

Young Black men are killing each other every day and the problem is particularly acute in urban cities like Chicago from which President Barack Obama hails. Yet, I haven’t seen Obama or the mainstream media shed a tear over the fact more than 50% of America’s murder victims are black and nearly all (85%) of those blacks killed are young men.

Nor do we see media or presidential outrage or calls for more rigid gun control laws when young black kids are heinously murdered like we do when the victims are mostly white. Neither words nor God can explain...
