I don't know why no one is listening and doing what it takes to put African America back together, at least to a point of where our young people are not out there killing one another.
But, I see the murder of Black people in America out of pure racism and the gang killing/murders as two issues, not just one issue, therefore, they will have to be dealt with as two different issues and two different reasons so many Black people are being murdered in America.
During Jim Crow, hell since slavery, jim crow, the Black Codes, really since slavery was racialized in America, Black people have been murdered, tortured, harassed and deliberately blocked from justice. The same time that this was going on, there were Black people that killed other Black people in America as well [though of course not on the level we see today, nor for the reasons that we see today], but, just because there also were Black people in America that killed another Black person during jim crow, et. al in America, it did/does not make the racist Lynchings [which is exactly what all the racist murders of Black people in America is] of Black people any less relevant.
We need to address BOTH issues, not overlook one because the other is also happening.
