Only the Race of the Victim Is Mentioned

According to the Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF):

The number of homicides in six major cities across the country has increased compared to last year, disproportionately affecting black people, according to crime data.

Black people have represented a massive share of murder victims in six major cities through the first six months of 2021 compared to last year, which itself saw a large crime surge.

The DCNF collected homicide data from Chicago, Baltimore, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and Indianapolis, some of the only cities in which such data is readily available.

For example, in Chicago, “Black people have been the victims of roughly 81% of murders this year while they were the victims in about 70% of 2020 murders.” In Baltimore, “Black people represented 69 of the 152, or 45%, of total murder victims between Jan. 1, 2021, and June 17, 2021.”

Only the race of the victim is mentioned throughout the long article. The article is implying that it is white people that are killing all of these black people. But is the case? Are whites the ones killing blacks in Chicago, Baltimore, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and Indianapolis every weekend? Or do black lives not matter to certain blacks in these cities who kill other blacks?
