The Tuskegee Institute has recorded 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites being lynched between 1882 and 1968, with the annual peak occurring in the late 1800s.  In many photos of lynchings at the turn of the century, onlookers and members of the mob can be seen smiling and grinning for the camera.  They demonstrate no fear of prosecution or reprisal. They had none.  For no white man was ever punished for a lynching until 1915.  By then, there had been thousands of lynchings in the South alone with certainly hundreds of thousands of spectators.  In the few cases that came to trial, all-white juries generally never convicted a white man of lynching a black.

 

Today, rather than white onlookers of lynchings, it is black eyewitness and spectators recording the murders of their love ones at the hands of white police officers, - and need I say black folk are not grinning for the camera!  In black communities throughout the nation where contentious relationships between black people and the white police exist, it is highly doubtful that the new Attorney General Loretta Lynch will be anymore effective in curtailing these murders than her predecessor Eric Holder.  As history has already taught us, - despite hundreds and perhaps thousands of white witnesses to Negro hangings and lynchings, no white person, mob or Klansmen has ever been prosecuted for these murders.  Is it any different today when in the bright of daylight with video and witnesses present white police officers murder unarmed blacks?

 

The police killings of unarmed and innocent blacks will continue until the President of the United States and any Attorney General he appoints either outlaws or modifies the State District Attorney’s and County Prosecutors ability to exercise unfettered discretionary power to cherry pick evidence then allow Grand Jurors to convene in secret with the DA or County Prosecutors selected evidence.  In other words, the only way to exonerate Officer Darren Wilson is to first ignore all eyewitness testimony and adopt any interpretation of the coroner’s findings that are favorable to Officer Wilson.  For example, arguing that the gunshot wound in Brown’s hand was the result of Brown grappling with Wilson to obtain the Officer’s weapon, when in fact as some have stated the wound could have also been sustained due to Brown’s defensive posture, (Hands up).

  

This is precisely what is happening nationwide that is allowing white police officers to get away with murdering innocent and unarmed black people.  Today, the law is the rope and police bullets is how blacks are killed, - either way, black people are just as dead as they were in 1890 hanging from a tree with a rope around their necks!  President Obama, Eric Holder and Lorretta Lynch, all graduates from prestigious universities with degrees in law know this.  All of them have seen or read about the Ferguson killing of Michael Brown, the choking death in New York, the shooting in SC, the shooting at an Ohio Wal-Mart and the shooting in the back of a black Utah teenager to mention just a few.  With all three of them being black lawyers, this raises a variety of questions relative to the protection of black people from unjustified and wanton murder by the police.  Beginning with the first African American President and Attorney General both of whom have stated publicly their prioritized interest in protecting Americans from terrorism, - but have been powerless in their ability to protect African American citizens from murder at the hands of the police.  Why then did the President appoint another African American with the same proclamations about terrorism and more importantly, what assurances will Lorretta Lynch provide African American citizens as it relates to the persistent and inexcusable shootings of African American citizens?

 

Why is Eric Holder quitting?  Why did he go to Ferguson when he knew he would not remain Attorney General long enough to bring change to African American communities under siege by the white police?  Is he leaving to purse a lucrative position as a political lobby or will he be joining a consulting firm or pursue chairmanship at a school of law at a prestigious university?   Whatever his reasons for leaving may be, what I do know is that Dr. King didn’t quit, nor did Fredrick Douglas, James Meredith, Thurgood Marshall, Malcolm X and numerous other black pioneers who all fought to the end even under the threat of death.  I expect little or nothing from Lorretta Lynch as it relates to establishing policy and enacting consequences for police officers that murder unarmed innocent black people.  It looks like her appointment and/or elevation to Attorney General amounts to window dressing for the black community and business in real time blackface for white people.

  Great commentary my brotha!  But just like folks TOLD me when my son was murdered by the HANDS of his own people[during the height of black on black murder].......SOMEBODY GOT TO BE THE SACRIFICE.  Which this sacrifice of our black youth CONTINUED for another decade or so...EVEN with a boatload of witnesses.   8:00 am rush hour car commuters was my son's eye witnesses.  Blackfolks just passing by in their cars as he was shot eight times in the head in the street.  They watched him just lay there-went around his body.  Didn't feel empathy that he was somebody's son....somebody's child. Or that he was a human being.  

 

 So although I understand and really FEEL whatcha saying?   Just like I have LEARNED about depending on others to be moved by the genocide of black people?  I had to get my ass out there myself and do my part and hope others would follow.  Cuz it's not those folks in congress, white house or the government authorities that are gonna do something ABOUT THIS.  It's gonna take the SAME kind of force of POWER from the PEOPLE to get this done.  Trust and believe.  I've seen it up close.  As why I KNOW very little is gonna get done by my president....sorry but it's the truth.  Cuz why?  It's gonna TAKE BLACK PEOPLE to do it.  Our history shows there is power in the masses....our masses of black folks that is.  They are the movers and shakers.  But they have been bamboozled.  

 

So right now?  Black folks need to get out their fancy cars, stop talking on their expensive cell phones, lift their heads outta cyberspace....and get the job done for the future of our children and culture.  Otherwise, we are gonna regress wayyyyyyy back to slavery but this time?  They gonna fix the constitution the same way some ancient religious documents are that not only encourages slavery but justifies human cruelty and social entrapment by some invisible entity that can only be contacted by them.  Sound crazy I know....but!  When that do happen[and we are not too far away from that reality] ......what are black people gonna do then? Just might be too late. Again it is my perspective that we lost our vision....and that's why this backward mindset continues to be an issue for us moving forward.   But!

I too Wonder why Eric Holder is quitting now,just when he has become Fed up enough to visibly bristle in reaction to stupid racist commentary directed at him. I like him angry!

Last night while at work, I heard that Fox News personalities Bill O'Reilly and Dumbass Megyn Kelly approve of Loretta Lynch and feel that congress shouldn't block her confirmation process. Is Fox News stamp of approval enough to give her the Side Eye?

Koco, you know I've expressed my great sorrow for what happened to your son and for the pain you have to live with each day.  I hope with every fiber of my being that whoever is responsible will be brought to justice.  

 

Every time you mention what happened to your son, it makes my hear ache for your son and for you.  

 

Don't give up on solving who is responsible for what happened to your son.  I believe that the wrong that was done to your son (and to you and your family) will be righted, that time, Karma, and the universe is going to make sure of it.  

 

In the meantime, to ease your pain, focus more on your son's life than his death, and remember that you were graced to have had him in your life and be thankful for the time you did have with your son.  Focus on everything that was good and beautiful and wonderful about your son; I believe that is what he would want you to do.

  Thank you my sista.   I am grateful to your kind words.  And as I evolved away from this ever piercing pain, I have managed to replace some of it with the vision of opening a new after school multi-disciplined arts center in the heart of the hood where teens/pre-teens can go and be free of social distractions that may cause them to join gangs, become criminals or cause them to do nothing at all with their lives...by 2020.  It's only six years away...but!  Time is moving so fast cuz I am also in school working on another degree.  Nowadays, you have to have doctorate to get the real money to fund this.  I'm talking millions of dollars....not crumbs they try to throw at ya.  

 

However, my pain is still as fresh as any when I hear issues regarding the murder of [innocent] black youth. It is not logical to ignore the current uproar about black killings....cuz I have lived it for years without ANY response from the black community.  I do hold a grudge about that.  Cuz why?  Because at the time they were too AFRAID of their own people..many times toooo AFRAID OF their own gang banging children to STOP IT. Now all of sudden....I see these same people shouting about police brutality?  What happened to gang banging brutality?  Black on Black crime brutality?  Cuz quite frankly, my soul is still at the corner street where my son was slain.  It never left.  It will never rest cuz the folks who killed him are COWARDS.  And the people who witnessed it are even worse COWARDS with no conscious.  Cuz black people are afraid of black people and will continue to be so and none of them are gonna come forward and do the right thing about my son-they haven't thus far.  So this is just something I will have to live with cuz it is something beyond my control.      

 

 So anyway...that's my current position.  I just have triggers of injustice that causes me to ALWAYS say what I feel...even if there are those who disagree.  Cuz I know....where alot of them may NOT know...how it FEELS to lose a child.  How it feels to betrayed by my OWN people.  I will NEVER ever forget it.   So for me?  It's not about the demonstrations, protest or even the outcry or outrage of murdered children by black people....it is the pattern of NON ACTION that seems to be our history in the last past 20 or so years...that I, have. a, problem with.  And to hear all this hoopla when by what the commentary above states black people been dying from injustice since we got here...it literately PAINS me to hear BLACK people TRY to minimize murdered black kids who have not died by the hands of the po po but by the hands of black folks.  It is as if these people are tone deaf and BLIND.  But again...that's not my fight!   I see it as a trend...cuz it is not stopping murders.  Black kids are STILL being killed by the po po...wonder why?  

 

And until these killings are eradicated on both sides? [both po po and black folks?] I agree with brotha RR when he said we need to teach our children how to behave [and protect themselves] on the outside...it is the same as it was during the time my parents were coming up in the Jim Crow era.   Anyway...I don't wanna go too far off the topic Brotha Homie brought up. But the way I look at this?  We have a long way to go before we can ever if ever feel safe in our own community...no matter how LOUD one screams no justice no peace.  But!

  Thank you my sista.  I appreciate your sentiments.  It is very difficult hearing about a youth dying senselessly. And I hear it every day. It is my hope that black kids can look at themselves and each other and FEEL that they do MATTER.  And that it is not all about hip hop and rap.  Or being a basketball player with name brand tennis shoes.  But it is about embracing black culture and understanding the dynamics of it...then they will know FULLY what the fuss is all about in terms of being black in America.  And to realized that FULLY ....and be proud of that.  And not be sucked up in a false sense of belonging created by black  and white sabotagers.  It is my hope that one day black kids will scream with pride as I did coming up...."I'm Black and I'm Proud."  And really mean it and feel it.   And when that day comes?  My soul just might leave the corner where my son lost his life.  But!

---Your anger or 'grudge' is quite understandable under the circumstances of the loss of your son, and you are right, that African America should be just as enraged, and out there protesting just as hard against Black on Black crime as we have over race-based crimes being committed against Black people in America.  But, I still believe that many African Americans are just as enraged about Black on Black crime, but don't know what to do, or if they would even be listened to if they tried to organize in mass against Black on Black crime. I believe that there are plenty of Black people that do care deeply about the amount of Black on Black crime, but don't have the knowledge, influence, and ability to organize and unite enough of us in one place, or in the right places, especially for as long as would take to make a dent the scourge of Black on Black crime plaguing African America.  I'm also sure you are right about Black people being afraid, especially in certain parts of the country or parts of a given city.  And you are definitely right when you say that those responsible for your son's murder are no more than cowards, which is why it sickens me that our own guns laws or so lax or have so many loopholes in them that tons of guns can be funneled directly into the hands of dirty, grimy cowards capable of committing such acts in the first place.

You didn’t!  In fact, the powerful first hand testimony you gave about your son is actually the same coin – just on the other side.  I stated that: “African American communities are under siege by the white police.  As difficult as it was for me to read your detailed and emotional account of how you lost your son, it became apparent to me that I made two very important omissions.  First, the black community is not only under siege by the white police but also by black gangs as well.  Some months back Sunnubian and I had this discussion about blacks killing innocent blacks and if I remember correctly I pointed to Chicago as my reference.  In any event, your discussion about your son renders what I stated about the President, Eric Holder and Lorretta Lynch somewhat incomplete.  So here is a restatement of what I should have said initially, - “the first African American President and Attorney General both of whom have stated publicly their prioritized interest in protecting Americans from terrorism, - but have been powerless in their ability to protect African American citizens from murder at the hands of the police,” (and the second omission, at the hands of gang warfare in their own communities).

White "America" will mourn the loss of a Dog more than it'll ever mourn the loss of a Black life.  There's probably some unspoken law among them that whatever happens to a Black life nothing will happen to you, whether it's you or them that takes the life.  This stuff has been happening ever since the 'cestors disembarked from the Slave Ships.  If we really take notice, not much really and truly has changed since then; it's just been renamed to pacify the African masses.

 

The "Founding Fathers" were NOT YOUR FATHERS, they were your OWNERS.  Whites haven't changed from that mindset.  Consequently, all these damn problems. They'd rather puke or drop dead than ever call you an "American".  There is no love, respect or much of anything else favorably displayed except pure HATRED for the Africans in "America".  500 years and counting.........

It's a reality in the hood. I know a lady who was an expert artist. She wanted to open up an organization designed for underpriviledged children in her area where she grew up. Took her 15 years. Cuz why? City council was jerking her around. And delaying proposals that would assist her. They tried to break her spirit. But every time? She kept going to them and didn't stop until she was approved for a 5 million 2 year grant sponsored by the city council. She should have had this before.  

 

And there is a white colleague of mine-attorney. Who got tired of the hustle and bustle of court decided to open an organization in the bowels of the hood. In less than 3 years...she was fully funded not only with governmental grants but with affluent donors who have been consistent. And she has not been met with breaks-in or community intimidation cuz why? She is white in a black neighborhood...and that scares the HELL outta black folks there. As of now? She is approaching 15 years providing community service in the hood. Wonder why? Reminds me of that man on television who always show improvish children while asking for money to help them, No one asked him or this white woman....where is the MONEY really going? Cuz heifer drives a new car every other year. FYI some black organizations are audited by the govt yearly for fraud.  What's wrong with this picture?

This is soooooooo true. And what I've had to deal with. It's a shame when your own enemies are your own people. But! I never allowed fear of my own people to stop me from helping the kids. It was just a hinderance cuz the PARENTS who stand there looking stupid when the children misbehaved....and I had to kick them out and have parents come to me asking me to give their child another chance...instead of teaching their children how to behave properly in the first place.

---I sincerely hope that you didn't feel that I was in anyway suggesting that you should no longer have pain in your heart for what happened to your son.


Never my sista. I don't think like that.  Of course if I did?  You know I would say something....right?  

 

I was just trying to at least share with you what I found to help me to get through each day after loosing someone that I loved dearly. Believe me, I know that the pain is never really going to go away.

I truly understand.

---Your anger or 'grudge' is quite understandable under the circumstances of the loss of your son,

 

Oh my sista. Trust and believe....I am 100 percent better than I used to be. Cuz back then? I hated....hated black people. Wouldn't even engage in a convo with 'em. I was disgusted by the hyprocrisy toward their own culture. But! Better now. I dont carry it with me anymore. Let it go.  But the grudge thing?  It's a reminder to me how BRAINWASHED some black people are....and so it keeps me on my toes when I am faced with FAKE black folks who wanna blow smoke up my behind just cuz they think they can.  You know the kind?  Those bougies.  Stories I can tell.  


---I don't think Black people are trying to minimize murdered black kids killed by someone Black, but are just at a loss as to what to do to stop it,

 

I guess this is where we kinda part ways...cuz I do believe some black people try to minimize black youth death by gang bangers cuz it may not be their experience and they have been socially raped of empathy towards their own people. Or they don't wanna think about it cuz it happened in their family where they were helpless to do anything about it.  

 

But that a massa/slave syndrome.  Where slaves were MORE concerned  about massa and his children than they were about their own children left in the hut unsupervised. This is one of the secret poison black people give to themselves to impress massa...or to impress others...to feel worthy. And they do this by the throwing their own people under the bus.  This has become the LEGACY in black culture. But it is soooooooo subtle.....and hard to see. But I see it. I see it every. day. Cuz why? This sickness in our DNA and have traveled all the way through the years to this point.

 

especially since we have laws on our books in this country that facilitate immature youth, dirty, grimy cowards, and murderers, having such easy, never-ending access to guns in the first place. And in some places, the criminals are so dirty and have such disregard for human life, that many people in those places really are afraid to organize, speak out, and/or finger perpetrators. Unfortunately, it is the exact result that saturating Black communities with drugs and guns was intended to have.

So true but here's the missing piece. Black criminals?  Belong to black people.  Black criminals/gangbangers have families too. So a black parent is gonna be afraid of their misguide youth and NOT say STOP?!!! Ridiculous!! But is the reality of how black folks are now.  That's one thing I can say about when I was coming up....black people had CONTROL OVER THEIR CHILDREN and CHILDREN'S BEHAVIOR IN PUBLIC. Today? Not so much or not at all. Otherwise, there wouldn't be an explosion of black on black killings.


---It is the same as during jim crow, with the exception being that Black people are Lynching other Black people for our collective oppressors.

 

Yup. This same method is done in Africa [originated by the Arab slavers]. As why you see black soldiers/rebels killing black people for white oppressors-taking them by surprise cuz they are NOT thinking their own PEOPLE will betray them.  Proof?  Black folks going in the villages and kidnapping innocent Africans for the oppressor/slavers.

 

 

It is the precise position a people can be brought to or put in when those people know nothing or very little of their own history, otherwise they would be able to connect-the-dots that would create proper boundaries of self-preservation, mutual respect and mutual empathy.

 

Exactly my sista. And you if look closely you will see that most African soldiers[as well as the terrorist soldiers]  are illiterate and know NOTHING about the world other than what the leader or so-called religious dogma says. Who the leader himself has selective knowledge about the world...which such selectiveness is meant to encourage him to be the savior of that thought pattern. This is classic mind control. And our people unfortunately are willing participants of it too.

 

Having said all of that? I know your heart my sista.  Your high intelligence and deep insight about issues affecting black people are amazing.  And everything you've said is right on point. However, for me? I still think we as black people....the only people who have managed to free themselves from the 5 thousand year global slave stronghold....still have a long way to before we will see the worth and value of our people and connect those dots of self-perservation, mutual respect and empathy. It's acoming. The only thing is....when? Hopefully in my lifetime.   But!

"Lynching" is probably named after some Caucasoid named "Lynch".  If that was my last name, I'd have changed it maybe.  

 

Isn't it strange, that Africans go with "Americans" to fight wars overseas, come back home; White ex-soldiers join the Police force, and wage a one-sided war by shooting dead the Africans "living" here. Who are the fools in this scenario???  Do it be us????

Thank you my brotha.  Hal. La. Lu. Yer.  Somebody finally on the same page.  Cuz I have been screaming this for years on deaf ears in the black community. As anything socially dysfuntional, its hard to see it up close and most always there is the willingness to look on the outside to blame.

 

Some months back Sunnubian and I had this discussion about blacks killing innocent blacks and if I remember correctly I pointed to Chicago as my reference. In any event, your discussion about your son renders what I stated about the President, Eric Holder and Lorretta Lynch somewhat incomplete. So here is a restatement of what I should have said initially, - “the first African American President and Attorney General both of whom have stated publicly their prioritized interest in protecting Americans from terrorism, - but have been powerless in their ability to protect African American citizens from murder at the hands of the police,” (and the second omission, at the hands of gang warfare in their own communities).

 

Bingo! My brotha. There it is. Warfare in our own community.  Here's a bit more [article written in the Daily Beast 7/2013] regarding the myth of black on black crime killing African American youths. It states: "Shapiro, echoing many other conservatives, is angry over the perceived politicization of the Zimmerman trial, and believes that activists have ”injected” race into the discussion, as if there’s nothing racial already within the criminal-justice system. Indeed, he echoes many conservatives when he complains that media attention had everything to do with Zimmerman’s race. If he were black, the argument goes, no one would care. And so, Shapiro found the sad story of Darryl Green, and promoted it as an example of the “black-on-black” crime that, he believes, goes ignored. Or, as he tweets, “49% of murder victims are black men. 93% of those are killed by other blacks. Media don’t care. Obama doesn’t care. #JusticeForDarryl.”

 

Special note: the writer twist the truth by casually stating "But there’s a huge problem with attempt to shift the conversation: There’s no such thing as “black-on-black” crime. Yes, from 1976 to 2005, 94 percent of black victims were killed by black offenders, but that racial exclusivity was also true for white victims of violent crime—86 percent were killed by white offenders. Indeed, for the large majority of crimes, you’ll find that victims and offenders share a racial identity, or have some prior relationship to each other."

 

No such thang as black on black crime?  GTFOH!!!  This is a deliberate distraction from the truth[wonder who is paying him to say this?]. The fact is it doesn't MATTER where a black person lives in terms of the statistics of his/her death. The fact that the murder was performed by a BLACK PERSON makes it a black on black crime. Bottom line. What a bone head!   There are those AGAIN...as I have stated many many times who want to MINIMIZE this deadly phenmena happening in black neighborhoods ALL OVER THE COUNTRY by indicating that for 25 years or more black people were killed by other black people as if it were a social gliche or black trend.  And by the author of this article being a black man himself stating this make even more SAD and tragic....cuz he says he doesn't believe that there were ever a such thang as black on black crime along with many other black folks. Pitiful.

 

Although activist groups like Operation Ghetto Storm who continues to assert that the deaths of African American males stems from the history of slavery by white men now mask themselves in uniforms, this group is STILL blinded to the BLACK FACES that deliberately gun down their own. Why is that? They don't wanna talk about it.  Even though they hear about drive-bys, executions of black people by black people....EVERYDAY....they still do not want to connect the dots.  And that's a HUGE problem in our community cuz you really don't KNOW who to trust:  the po po or the teen thug next door. And quite frankly we need to address this head on and pull outta this wet sand. Otherwise, we are gonna continue to be tangled up in this quandary of deceit...while black youths continue to die.  But!

"Lynching" is probably named after some Caucasoid named "Lynch".  If that was my last name, I'd have changed it maybe.

 

  I don't understand that either.  Who would want a name like that?  Or to live in a community penned lynch?  That shows how SICK we as society really are.  That's like trying to upgrade the 'n" word.  You can't no matter how much perfume you put on it....the aroma of what it suggests still STINKS racist.  But!
