Reply to "HOW THEY STILL LYNCH BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA"

  We are shown over and over how this society feels about us..... no secret...and yet we continue to allow our children to live in a community where is no peace, no unity, no respect UNTIL something tragic from the outside happens.  We. Need. To. Clean. Up. OUR, backyard.  We need to take steps to reclaim our youth....our people.  As long as we stand divided?  The killings of our children will continue.  We don't even know who killed this young man.  And yet folks are on the streets demonstrating cuz the medical examiner has given the cause of death as "no foul play."  Fact is the boy is deceased.  Again....walking around that elephant.  I know how about demonstrating EVERY time a gang banger drives by and shoots into his own neighborhood?  Instead of hitting the floor to avoid the bullets.  Let's start there.  As a parent who lost a child every time I see something like this it focking SICKENS me.  Cuz it's sooooo backwards and fake.  You are scared of your OWN people and yet when one of our children die at the hands of massa......here yall come?  GTFOH.   How's that working? 

 

I remember one time I joined a group called Parents of Homicide Victims years ago.  Annually we would walk down a popular boulevard with posted pictures of our deceased children at the hands of cowardly drive bys,  Motorcycle police would guide us as we marched silently to our destiny:  a church where speakers who talk about the violence, police brutality etc against our young.  Parent after parent would come up to the podium with kleenex in hand telling  their stories.....then afterwards we would ALL go home and the same DAY 4 or 5 youths would be gunned down on the same streets we JUST walked.  That several years ago.

 

 My point?  Sometimes chemo therapy and radiation DON'T work.  Sometimes you have to CUT the cancer OUT.  And we do that by restructuring HOW we reform our community that will embrace our youth and teach our youth socialization skills necessary to evolve into effective nonviolent whole adults.  I don't understand WHY no one is listening. As long as we accept negativity: negative thinking, behavior, music, environment, murder of our children[by whomever] will focking CONTINUE.  And that my friends is the focking tragedy of being BLACK in America.  Cuz we can stop it RIGHT NOW!  But thus far, haven't.  We can only walk sooooooo far.  But!
