Victimology Reaction

Read both of the provided articles that discuss the “fallacy” of “Black on Black crime”. As you read both articles that discuss the historical connection of “Black on Black crime”, and its connection to racism, and the significance that it has had on the Black experience you as the reader should consider a few things:
Who benefits from creating the image of Blackness as dangerous?
Define the term fallacy as it pertains to the notion of “Black on Black crime”
Provide your own understanding of “Black on Black” crime prior to reading the articles and after.
What biases do you hold because of the constant media usage of the term “Black on Black crime” instead of the appropriate term “intragroup violence”?
Consider the current climate of police brutality and why the media consistently attempts to villainize Black victims even in death. While subsequently infantilizing white offenders of crime who are alive even after having committed mass killings.
Your reaction paper should be no less than two pages and no greater than three pages. It should also include a cover page and a reference page. The cover page example can be found in your syllabus (automatic 15-point deduction if it is not included) This paper is to be written using the APA style guide which includes in-text citations. Refrain from the usage of blocked quotes for all reaction papers. The aim of these papers are to strengthen your voice as a writer albeit short and concise.
