The social factor in Black on Black crime? Is not accepting of who we are to each other and as a people. The social factor is not being able to be a "father" to a son. As a result, the abandonment of that son...cuz the father was an abandoned son-since slavery. Therefore, historically he has been not socially accepted by his own family and moves outward to define himself and joins a group just like him. His group face another group just like them....there is no acceptance.....socially. Therefore, they plot to DESTROY each other with guns, robbery, murder. harassment...for generations. It soon becomes father like son. Then daughter like mother-who are both without fathers and many times without mothers. No social training of acceptance.
The only other example I can give regarding this conditioning is similar to how a "dog" trainer teaches other dogs how to be social toward each other- this element of training in our culture has been de-veined. Much like pit bulls today many black folks find difficulty being be in the SAME environment-street, party, park, neighborhood with each other without citing some form of VIOLENCE. No?
It is a human conditioning massa has created for us which silently screams flaw play. You can see it in the current behavior of many of our people. So...when you define social war as classes, ethniticies against each other, in a way it is true. Cuz we are African hybrids with different ethnicities[sp] running through our veins but are rejected by these very ethnicites [sp] who raped our identity. In terms of the classes, traditionally this is true as well. The field hand vs the house hand. The educated vs the uneducated...and so on. We too are identified with a form of caste system but the difference? It is INVISIBLE. Yet extremely powerful and dangerous where it manipulates us to HATE what we see in the mirror and hate others who look like us. Hate to the point where we have become socially UNABLE to find unity within our culture. If what I say is false, then someone explain to me WHY are we the only race in the WORLD to kill each other in droves? Not just here in America. But in many countries in Africa where there too are caste systems of class. For example the Hutus vs Tutus, SLA[Sierra Leone Army] vs RUF, Bantu vs Zelas, Lissouba vsPCT[Congolese Labor Party]...just to name a few. Why is this so? Therefore we have to look at the term "social war" differently from what we've been taught by massa to find the real answer cuz his meaning doesn't apply. Cuz it is a FACT we as blacks are in a social war against each other. And it has EVERYTHING to do with socially accepting each other as a people-a recognition thus far our children have been having a difficult time doing. If this is not so, then what is the REAL reason for the disunity and.........the senseless killings? I wanna KNOW. But!
