We will never "save our children" until we save our families. Fatherless homes and broken families all the in context of gangsta rap, bitches and ho's mentality toward women and the glorification of pimpster male dominance by pick your favorite rapper is what is presently at the heart of the deterioration of the black community. The fact of claimed injustices woven into the prison system doesn't explain how a million black men got their in the first.
I guess you never saw the news video of the robbery and beating of an elderly black man by a black youth while another group of black men stood by and did nothing to help him. Why would that be? Because none of those black young men had ever had a father who loved them and never knew a grandfather who loved them and their father. They're as pathological as they come and have no ability to attach emotionally or otherwise suffering the most vital institutional deprivation, the deprivation of family.
You can point your finger all you want at whitey but that doesn't explain the perpetual downward slide toward the abyss of degradation generated within the community itself. As one black pastor pointed out, celebrating blackness for blackness sake isn't constructive. Just because Snoop Dog is a commercial success or a "black success story" it doesn't mean at all that he's making any kind of constructive contribution to the community. He's not. All he's doing is perpetuating the above mentioned hip hop attitudes about life. It's black youth who are listening to his likes and the gangsta rappers of the day and the influence is so severe and the attitudes so pronounced that by the time they are young adults they are completely morally degenerate. They become unreformable, unemployable and unmarriageable. We can place the locust of the poroblem on white disinfranchisement but when the line of crime, violence and murder gets
crossed, a community has to begin looking at itself. In other words no one is forcing anyone to pull a trigger in a drive by that felds a black youth who is trying to reach life's goals in the more conventional means, education and personal achievement.
For the record, Faye Stender became romantically involved with George Jackson while trying to defend him and the Black Panthers who were the worst sort gangsters masquerading as political activists against injustice. When she realized that his associates were purely criminal she distanced herself personally from him. It was her son who opened the door when her assailant used a girl as a decoy pretending to be in need of help. With a gun in her son's face, the assailant and assistant gained entrance into the home where Faye was roused out of her sleep. He was bound and gagged and was made to watch as his mother was shot several times execution style in the back forming the bullet pattern of a cross while her daughter lay asleep upstairs. Miraculously Faye survived but was left paralyzed and in severe unrelenting pain. Unable to endure her suffering she ended her life a year later. Sorry if you want to cast doubt on the accuracy of the above article which accurately reports the facts, but those are the facts.
Finally, many were shocked when youths entered a church service and shot identified targets during a worship service. The resolve of black pastors in Richmond was to try and reach out to the troubled youth of the Richmond community to communicate love and understanding toward them. They intend to knock on thousands of doors in an effort to reach and identity youth in need of love and encouragement and try to save at risk youth.
The answer for the black community is where it has always been but too many are too sophisticated too hostile to give heed to the message of the Christian Gospel. Brushed aside as a white man's religion or simply atheistic skepticism, the Gospel is cast aside. Ruch Limbaugh has begun a mantra since the election of Barack Obame, "How's that hope and change working out for you?" Things aren't getting better for too many people in the black community and pointing fingers with trumped up white injustice is not going to end the epidemic of crime and social pathology found in the deepest parts of troubled communities, coming, by the way, to a white community near you.
To white liberals I can only say that you have grossly deceived yourselves with your self-righteous, Marxist-socialist world view. Taking up a counterfeit system of righteousness and the cause of the victims of western capitalism has done nothing for the black community.
White feminist have done nothing for women and especially black women. The poorest black communities are littered with abortion clinics, unlike Latino or white communities, just waiting to collect on a black woman's journey of taking control of her life by ending her child's life. Inter generational welfare and the disaster of the likes of the housing projects have harmed and not helped the black community. White liberal value of sex and family and the the sixties obsession with drugs, sex and rock and roll ushered in destructive ideas in our culture which facilitated the further erosion of the black community.
White liberalism has utterly failed the black community and your moral supremacist attitudes which make you self-righteously sympathize with the their plight has only perpetuated white dependence not black independence. You are not the answer for the world's ills through your Marxist-socialist sacraments like abortion, redistribution and socialism.
Black community, take note.
