Petition: Obama asked to take a stand against black-on-white violence

See also

On Dec. 9, a petition was created on the official White House website, asking President Obama to formally address "the issue of black-on-white interracial violent crime during the upcoming State of the Union Address."

While the so-called 'knockout game,' in which black teens sucker punch a white person on the street is currently spreading to cities both large and small, black-on-white violence is nothing new.

According to the 2012 FBI Uniform Crime Report, whites committed 43.2 percent, while blacks committed 54.6 percent of murders of all murders in 2011.

That same report also states that violent crimes rose by 17 percent in 2011, over the previous year.

A surge in aggravated and simple assaults accounted for most of the increase. Such attacks rose by 22 percent, resulting in 5 million reported assaults in 2011.

The report also states that "a majority of the increase" came against white and Hispanic victims.

With daily reports of 'knockout game' attacks occurring in dozens of cities, many people are understandably frightened and want action from this president, who, in the past, has waded-in on racial issues.

The online petition reads:

Whereas, according to FBI statistics, more than two million white Americans are victimized by black perpetrators annually;

Whereas the majority of the victims of interracial violent crimes are white;

Whereas federal policies are a major factor in the current rates of black-on-white violence;

Whereas President Barack Obama is the head of the federal government, and;

Whereas he has addressed the issue of interracial violence when he perceived that a black person (Trayvon Martin) was the victim of said violence;

Therefore be it resolved that President Barack Obama shall make the termination of black-on-white interracial violent crime a national priority and shall formally address the issue during his upcoming 2014 State of the Union Address to be delivered to a joint session of Congress.

Sign the petition...

A total of 100,000 signatures are needed by Jan. 8, 2014, in order to receive an official White House review and response.

The White House raised the signature threshold from 25,000 to 100,000 after petitions asking for the right for several states to secede from the union received an overwhelming response, immediately following the 2012 election.
