While the article mentions that “Over the past five years 1,220 black men have been killed in Baltimore — 84 percent of the 1,449 homicides between 2013 and last year”, it does not say that black men are overwhelmingly responsible for the killings.
Baltimore Mayor Catherine E. Pugh is poised to launch a new effort to support and expand mentoring and other services aimed at helping African American boys and men avoid falling prey to crime and violence.
The mayor’s new Office of African American Male Engagement is set to begin operations on Feb. 12; it is modeled after a similar effort in Philadelphia. It will be led by Andrey Bundley, the former city high school principal and mayoral candidate.
