I'm writing a paper on the myth of black liberation movements cause a rise in violent crimes, and was wondering if anyone here has read anything recent that is related to that?

Saw a cop stopping two dudes on the street in what looked like basically random description-based harassment (we've had a string of robberies, usually committed by "2-3 blk males in x color hoodies," although none tonight) and they obviously were just trying to go about their night.

People from Syria are called Syrians, and there are Syrian-Assyrians. My family are Iraqi tho.
