I was shocked as well when I read it in the book. When I was doing my counseling training years ago, the numbers that we had showed that AA youth hardly ever committed suicide, that this was definitely more of a white thing. The conventional wisdom was that if a black youth died of non-natural causes or accident, it was most likely due to black youth killing one another. Yet, there was always a sense with respect to the latter, that such violence was rooted in self-hatred/self-destructive...
