Mecklenburg County Commissioner Vilma Leake said the reason young Black males make up about 90% of homicide victims and perpetrators is party due to former President Donald Trump.

“I’m tired of going to funerals! I’m tired of weeping and moaning over issues of this community and the country!” Leake thundered.

“We were moving pretty smoothly at one time and then when the political arena got involved – with Trump and that crowd and the boys out of Virginia – wherever they’re from… hatred began to rise. Hating each other. Black men disliking Black women and want to tell us what to do. And the opposite.”

Leake, the District 2 Democrat and former School Board member, made her comments during a presentation from the County’s Office of Violence Prevention. The County unveiled it’s plan to reduce gun assaults and homicides by 10% over the next 5 years.
