In Light Of The Current Shooting Death Of Australian 22 Year-Old College Baseball Star, Chris Lane… “Because We Were Bored”….WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE? WHERE ARE AL SHARPTON & JESSE JACKSON NOW?????
"We" (The Black Community) were "up in arms" regarding the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Tom Joyner, and many locals marched, chanted, & prayed for justice.
The question that haunts me is: Where are "WE" now? Where are Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson? Where is all the concern and outrage over the senseless killing of Australian Student & Baseball Superstar Chris Lane by teenage Black Youth who were (in their own words) "bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody".
It's somewhat sickening to think that the Racism we condemn is the same Racism we promote within subliminally!
There's FAR FAR more Black on Black and Black on White homicide than there is White on Black. Are we trying to get even for what "they" did to "us" during Slavery? Maybe we need to teach our kids that "those" people who did whatever they did, at the time, are probably either dead or dying. Chris Lane surely wasn't one of the Slave Masters from "back in the day"!
The boys responsible the murder of Chris Lane seemed to have no qualms about expressing their racist views. One of the boys, 15-year-old James Edwards Jr., tweeted, "With my n****s when it's time to start taken life's" -- a line from the Chief Keef rap song, "I Don't Like." In April, he tweeted, "90% of white ppl (people) are nasty. #HATE THEM."
It's embarrassing, to me, when I realize there is a Double-Standard practiced within the Black Community. We WON'T SNITCH and tell on our own even if we're standing there eye-wittnessing a crime..."we" go CRAZY when the Police or a White person kills a Black Person. Well who do we blame this time? Maybe we should blame Chris Lane for going outside....I mean he should have known that Black Folks own the streets and have a right to take a life based on what happened to us during Slavery...Right?....
WHY ARE WE ...and... WHAT ARE WE MARCHING FOR IN DC THIS WEEKEND?????? WE NEED TYO BE MARCHING DOWN OUR WON STREETS AND RIDDING OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES OF ALL DRUGS, DRUG HOUSES, GUNS, AND VIOLENCE!!! THE GOVERNMENT CAN'T FIX THAT!!!! We're claiming it's to the 50th Anniversary of the Historic "MARCH ON WASHINGTON".... so we're marching because we're "PROUD"?.... of what?... a Community of Killings and Killers which continues to GROW since the march? We should be Marching With Heads Down In Embarrassment and Apology to D. Martin Luther King Jr. "WE" as a Black Community DO NOT DESERVE TO CELEBRATE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF ANYTHING!!!!!!!
(HOLD ON.... GOTTA CHANGE MY FACE)......
BLACKS SHOULD BE MORE OUTRAGED THAN EVER!!!!! How is it a White person is shot and killed and the SUSPECTS automatically go to jail...there was only ONE SHOOTER so why are all three in jail? Why wasn't George Zimmerman jailed IMMEDIATELY?????
Which viewpoint makes more sense to YOU!!!!!? Here's some video that may help:
