Green Party has cure for Philadelphia gun violence – www.gp.org

“It is very revealing that the Democratic and Republican officials do not look at the statistics,” said Chris Robinson, a Green Party of Philadelphia member (GPOP). “There is no secret to the cause of gun violence: our history of racism. A study published last year by Dr. Jessica H. Beard, assistant professor of surgery and director of trauma research at Temple University’s school of medicine, showed that gun violence in Philadelphia happens in the areas which were redlined following World War II. Because of our history of racist disinvestment in certain neighborhoods, gun violence has increased there.”
