Violence needs to stop among all people, but the media has to make the first move. Since most of the acts of violence are observed from the media, it would take people within the media to change the way situations are acted. Not only is Black on Black crime a major issue in society, but also Whites killing Blacks. There are many different factors that can be blamed for this
