Their own worst enemy

Not denying the fact that there are some hair brain – over zealous  cowboy cops out there that get the rocks off killing people. BUT one very important fact that the black community,  the Black Lives Matter  organization and other black entities like it are overlooking or ignoring;  black men killing black men is a gigantic problem that very few of their leaders, if any are addressing.  I know they have to see it. If a problem or situation is not acknowledged, how is it going to be corrected?

I just listen to a statement Mr. O made recently made regarding the 5 Dallas cops that were slaughtered and all of the implications surrounding it. Not one time did I heard him or any of the other leaders in the black community stand up and chastise their own people for their irresponsible actions between one another.

Here are just 2 excerpts from the website below depicting what seems to be sadly imbedded in the black way of life.

FACT 1. Over 1,400 more black Americans murdered other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968.

According to FBI data, 4,906 black people murdered other blacks in 2010 and 2011. That is 1,460 more black Americans killed by other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968, according to the Tuskegee Institute.

FACT 2. Black People (mostly men) commit a grossly disproportionate amount of crime.

In 2012, white males were 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders.

FOLKS; facts do not lie. Unless the black community takes the bull by the horns and tells it like it is / lays it on the line, there is a very good chance these horrible statistics will only continue to increase.

Denial is a horrible place to be stuck in. It has brought many people to their knees by trying to camouflage the obvious and acting like the problem does not exist.

If someone goes to the dentist with a toothache and the dentist only patches, it may look good but the person still has a toothache.

Like a bad tooth, this division between the races has to be extracted. Pretending it does not exist on ALL sides or not taking responsibility on ALL sides, the rotten tooth is just going to become more infected than it is already.

It is incumbent for all black leaders to stand up and tell it like it is.  Do not sugar coat the fact that a great deal of the difficulties the black community is within their own ranks.

It is incumbent that the rebel-rousers who are fueling the racial fires be shut down and ignored by the decent people who want to see peace in this country.

It is incumbent that law enforcement gets a handle on their rogue cops  and eliminate them.

It is incumbent that authorities prosecute the rogue cops to the fullest extent of the law if they break it.

It is incumbent that everyone concerned put their differences aside and work toward a common goal of peace between races for the sake of future generations. The present course that it is on is only a gigantic train wreck waiting to happen.

I said it a 1,000 time. We don’t have to like one another, just respect the other person.

If anyone of us has a bad habit  or addiction and does not acknowledge it; not to everyone on the planet but just to ourselves; it will never be corrected.  Admitting a problem does exist is the first and most important step to the solution.

Let’s face it FOLKS; all of these conditions, good or bad  affects all of us. It should be our responsibility to make the necessary corrections for future generations.
