2. Some people choose not to discuss depressing stuff. It’s their prerogative
That is true to some degree for me. I don't mind discussing those things if there is a plan of action. All too often black folk will come together and talk about what white folk have done, but once the conversation ends, our concern ends. Those of you who throw those police stories up, what exactly are you doing to change the situation? Do you attend your neighborhood association meetings to discuss it? Do you have meetings with the officers who patrol your area? Do you go over and talk to your local patrol officer when you see them parked in your neighborhood?
If you are so outraged by the stuff you read online and are so compelled to post it, tell us also about the things you are doing to bring change. Here are a couple things i did this week alone. I talked to neighborhood association about two homicides that occurred in town this week. We are looking for ways to condemn the property where those fools live since several folk have been shot there. The city has gotten funding for a pilot program to deal with gang violence. I plan to volunteer my time when it is up and running.
I also stopped by the nearby towing company because those good ole boy drives use our neighborhood as a short cut on the way to accidents. They travel over 60 miles an hour on a residential street. Why do tow truck need to rush to an accident anyway?
