“I have a question...How come there is NO demonstrations in OUR community to STOP black on black crime? Why are leaders like Sharpton and Jackson soooooooo bold with po po but scared to face JEROME? I grow tired of these men picking and choosing what they will protest while our children continue to commit self-genocide.”
Excellent question! I have yet to her an intelligent response or answer to this particular type of question. Negroes rant and rave about the killing of a black person by a white person yet the wholesale slaughter of black on black victims goes mute? It makes no sense. The number of violent crimes committed against blacks by whites is minuscule when compared to the everyday violence and murder of blacks by other blacks. To me, it does not matter who committed the crime but the unwarranted and unjustifiable demise of the victim should be paramount. Yet this parsing and deliberate selection of spurious outrage based on the perpetrators race seems to be the corner stone of whether Negroes will phane their indignation.
As far as Sharpton or Jackson is concerned, I see no need to bother with either. Why would you need Sharpton or Jackson to rubber stamp your grievance? Does their acknowledgment or participation authenticate your issue(s)? American Negroes cannot get past this messiah syndrome, the need to have an individual cosign their problems and present them. Power and effectiveness lies within a collective body and organization –not an individual. Negroes should take to the streets, media and other forms of communication to show their dissatisfaction and outrage at instances of injustice and senseless violence. This mindset for a so-called “leader” is nonsense. Jackson or Sharpton are not needed nor required for Negroes to collectively vent their frustration nor seek restitution for their aggrievement. Why they do not understand nor accept this is beyond me…..
