There is a violence problem within the black subculture in the United States. Blacks have always, even back to the 1600s, treated blacks poorly. Slavery was a black institution in Africa long before it was brought to the US by Dutch and Portuguese traders. There seems to be a disrespect for life or disrespect for peaceful coexistence that permeates much of the black lower classes. For the most part, each lower class culture deals with its situation differently. Blacks tend to treat their peers worst than most. No doubt it's Bush's fault.
