  • sawitcoming: Um, why can't be concerned about both? They're both bad, but don't use one as a distraction to the very real fact that we live in a country that has no problem with EITHER of those situations. And don't you think it's funny that any time a black person complains that our men are being shot down in the streets like dogs for having done nothing but be black, the discussion turns to "black on black" crime. WTF is that? IT'S A DISTRACTION. So don't come up in here talking that. We have people in our communities already dealing with the black on black and gang issues. You have to understand, it's not the black man's behavior that drives racism. You can be the president of the USA, a prominent black professor at Harvard, or a young man just walking home alone from a convenience store and the racists will still only see your black skin and they will act accordingly. Just because there is black on black crime means nothing when we are talking about being gunned down while unarmed and not in the midst of perpetrating a crime. GET REAL. Unfortunately, things will get worse before they get better. What we are experiencing is a backlash against the progress blacks have made in the US. The white ruling class is shrinking and the US is becoming more ethnically diverse. Billy Bob and Bubba are not taking too kindly to that. They feel like cornered animals under siege, and hence, your stand your ground laws or as I like to call them "shoot me a n** and get away with it laws." Harass and Frisk, Voting rights roll back, voter ID. It's like Jim Crow is rising from his grave. They are trying mightily to keep the black man in check. I'm a little bit more worried about that than "black on black" crime or let's just call it what it really is: crime. Can you imagine if every time a white person stepped outside their door one was shot in the ass by an Asian person every week and they complained, and rightfully so, but all anyone said was, well what about "white on white" crime? LOL. Don't get distracted people, keep your eye on the prize. View Post
  • Allean: Charles Neither one is ok. However I would say the killing of another brother or sister is worst. We can sometimes be our worst enemy. Years ago we worried about being killed by men in white robes. Now, we have to worry about us killing us. We need to stop this. No, there is no need for more guns, there are more than enough out already. We need to learn to be more compassionate of our brothers/sisters, stop the "I want what you have" mentality (if this means you plan on stealing or killing for it and not working & saving to purchase). This starts with you and me. View Post
  • rick: I say Amen to that but we too need to clean up our situation 'cause every night I watch the news I am ashamed and concern about how we kill ourselves..besides prejudiced white policemen .we are our worst enemy !!!!! View Post
  • Eric: Maybe we need to bring back an organization similar to the Black Panthers. View Post
  • Jah Larry Dread: I second what Allean has stated. Also, I often get into debates with black police officers by asking this question, why black cop never shoot any unarmed white boys? Never an answer...just a blank stare. Many are angered when I ask my next question, why is it the black cop is always shot in an undercover sting by white cops and it is billed in the news paper as friendly fire? View Post
