A recent FBI report revealed that the number of violent crimes decreased by 5.5 per cent.
Alfred Blumstein of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburg said, “For murder, arrests of blacks went down by 2.7 percent while arrests of whites went up by 0.4 percent. A similar pattern exists for robbery and drug abuse offences in 2009.”
He claims that the election of the first black president has inspired young black men to turn away from lives of crime, the “Obama effect”.
What do you think? Is the Obama effect a reality? Are our young black men truly inspired by this man?
