I'm afraid I have to disagree with the main point of a Thursday letter (Pitts didn't address the whole problem). He starts by missing the point of Pitts' analogy (fix what's obviously broken, then work on other issues). The letter's point is that unless something is done about 'black on black' crime it will do no good to address the issue of biased law enforcement. I suppose you could argue that black perpetrators aren't treated any differently by the police than white perpetrators but you can't really argue that even if they are, nothing should be done until 'black on black' crime ceases completely, can you? There will always be black on black crime, as there will always be white on black, black on white, white on white, male on female, female on male, dog on cat (can I stop now?).
