And then you say, "nobody cares". The article follows up your statement by saying, "Because both the victims and the killers are black, that's why." Do you realize that is an ignorant statement? You are generalizing all the people of our country as if we are racist.
Most people actually don't care. Some are hoping that they'll all just kill each other and be done with it. Generalizing everyone in the country who isn't directly affected by gang violence is what's happening here. just like the crisis on Syria, if the problem is not occurring within an individual's bubble, they have little concern or interest in it. Generalizations are based on some degree of truth.
We know that there is an issue with gang violence in America. I watch 48 Hours all the time! If you want to address the ones that don't care, send a letter to the White House.
That is as close as most "concerned" citizens will EVER get to involving themselves in the issue of gang violence. By watching it on tv.
I ask you to contact the government and then let us know how that worked out for you.

It is a serious issue that people should pay more attention to. Something should be done, but it's completely different than a school shooting. I'm just saying the two shouldn't be compared.
Btw, I'm not for gun control.
