Do you agree with his call?


In the end, the Democratic party will not solve our problems. Because, the only way to be taken serious is through ECONOMICS.

Again, How many black people was murdered by the police in 2019?





Stop using ‘black-on-black’ crime to deflect away from police brutality

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- “Why aren’t we talking about black on black crime?”

If you’ve expressed support for Black Lives Matter, spoken out against police brutality, or written a modest column in the past few weeks, you’ve probably been asked (or chastised) for not mentioning how many more black people kill other black people compared to the police.

There are answers to the question, “Why aren’t we talking about black on black crime?” But critics of Black Lives Matter don’t want to hear them.

If they cared, they’d be asking about crime within the African American community year-round, as many black activists and neighborhood leaders do. But as Doughboy told Tre in 1991’s “Boyz N the Hood” (and it’s still true today), “Either they don’t know, don’t show, or don’t care about what’s going on in the hood.”

When an opponent of Black Lives Matters talks about “blacks killing blacks” it’s almost always to deflect attention away from police brutality. As if one issue makes the other more acceptable.

When someone commits an act of terrorism against in the United States, which rightfully leads to anger and sadness, no one asks, “Well what about how many Americans kill other Americans each year?” Because that would crazy, now wouldn’t it?

****

What is someone supposed to do when you can be murdered legally? When police can harass you and then choke you out because you’re selling loose cigarettes or when a cop can kneel on your neck as you cry out “I can’t breathe" while his colleagues stand by and watch.

That’s why police brutality is its own unique horror. And African Americans are two and half times more likely than whites to be killed by law enforcement.

When you step outside every day knowing you’re twice as likely to be killed by someone sworn to protect you just because of the color of your skin, you’re dealing with a different type of fear. Don’t let statistics, ignorance or flat out racism cloud that.

who are the usual suspects?

Are they like folk who post crime stories who still don’t know the difference between a crime and police brutality.

How many black people are murdered by the cops, vs by civilians? I'll let you sleep on that buddy.


I sleep well thank you.

Your fascination with posting black crime stories while not so cleverly giving a pass to police brutality and other assortment of atrocities committed by white folk on non-whites tells quite a story about you.


I don't give a pass on police brutality. But, the same energy that you have towards white people and police force. You need to take  into the 'hood.

White men have violent tempers

They only have a violent temper with a gun, or when other white men back them up (police force).

Portland State?  Is that Main or Oregon? Is that the school that got beaten by 100 points years ago.

Portland Oregon. A city by the way.
