  'Black-on-Black crime': A loaded phrase heard amid calls for police reform "Black-on-Black crime" is a phrase not only used by white people but also by some Black people calling out crime in their communities. John Ayala reportedly used the phrase after his grandson, 11-year-old Davon McNeal, was fatally shot during a Fourth of July cookout in Washington, D.C., according to The Associated Press. The family is Black, as per Ayala's social media, as are the suspects in McNeal's death. "We're protesting for months, for weeks, saying, 'Black Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter.'
