No No No! Black on Black killing IS a social WAR. Cuz why? We as people CANNOT socially GET ALONG with each other to the point that we ARE killing each other. No? Whether or not we have the availability of GUNS....what is it that is possessing us to KILL? You can give a person a gun....but! It takes that HATRED inside to pull the trigger. Guns don't kill my sista.......people do! And in this case, black youth have over and over again for the LAST 30 years. So you can say whatcha want...how you percieve this but the bottom line is SOCIALLY in Africa as well as in America.....for some sick reason blacks are compelled to kill themselves as opposed to killing the very people who has placed us in this position, Being tooo immature is besides the point, if you are RAISE to respect other people....but! Guess what? Many black parents are NOT around to teach their CHILDREN self-control....as the saying goes...you can't make a horse drink.,,,if HE don't wanna. So what is possessing our children to wanna? KILL?
Whether it's police brutality....or blacks killing blacks it is the SAME mentality that says....blacks are NOT worth their lives. Lord knows I am sorry....but! I totally disagree with you on this. Cuz I have witnessed blacks WATCHING with eyes wide open the PINK ELEPHANT in the room....and do nothing. See folks see social war as the white man against blacks or racists against blacks....if so then what is it called when it's blacks against blacks? Where you cannot even REASON with them. We already KNOW that massa is the NEW Police. That's a given. But what is it the lures young black men to kill each other or who are willing to die as well as spend the rest of the lives if caught in jail as a result of the spilling of another black person who look like their BLOOD relative? Cuz at the end of the day DEAD is dead regardless of WHO pulls the trigger. Death is NOT gonna get up argue and identify the true culpit...cuz it's a done deal. Blacks do the SAME as police. We singled out each other. We harass each other. We have a DUTY to get along with each other but don't. Blacks torture, beat, threaten, murder in cold blood.......alladat! My sista it is the same ELEPHANT trampling on both sides of the field.
And I think maybe this is where the misunderstanding in our community lies....the fact that many of us don't see that it is the SAME twisted element that inspires police brutality....inspires black on black crime, How I see it? It's the SAME evil. Just called different names at different times, With the same end result from both names. And that is why for me? It is a collective TRAGEDY. Cuz back in the day, you use to be able to RUN from the police in the backyard of your black community....now if you do, you just MIGHT get shot! So who is the REAL enemy? Us? Or them? But!
But, what is the social factor in Black on Black crime? When you say social war, I'm thinking, different classes/religions/ethnicities/etc. against each other.
