    "The Madness Time: A Murder Epidemic In Oakland"

    This article shook The Buzz up this morning.

    Yes; there are other parts of the globe that are dealing, on scale, with much worse death tolls and violence. And with all sympathy and acknowledgment to those grim realities, we are Americans and when such things happen in our own country, they hurt differently. Over 140 murders this year. The year is, per the printing of this article, 63 days long. Do a little math and you'll find that comes out to 2.2 homicides a day. 2.2 times a day, someone is intentionally killed in Oakland, California. Look around you--your office, class, place of business--and pick out sixteen people at random. In one week in Oakland, they'd all have been murdered.

    Forgive us a moment for not caring one iota about what Rush Limbaugh has to say about this or how being the president makes your hair turn grey or even how the undeserving are getting billions in bailout money. We, The Buzz included, so often talk about seeming matters of life and death except for, of course, actual matters of life and death. Hard to have a pithy bon mot about this policy or that when someone is laid out on a slab. Reveling in the self-congratulatory glow of an ideological joust isn't nearly as refreshing when there's blood on the pavement. So we ignore and rail on about the things that really matter. We have to remain vigilant and remember that it all matters. Bailing out AIG? Fine. Let them have the money. Someone just tell us who has a plan for bailing out Oakland?

    We have got to do better.

    I saw the flik Menace to Society and it was what i heard from folks in Cali.
    After Karenga and the Panthers,

    brothers started straitening thier hair, rejecting Afrocentric culture, and denegrating the sisters like the overseers did during slavery.

    if one called someone an African in Compton the response would be,
    there wouldnt be much left for the undertacker to embalm after they got through

    why would anyone think that black people are an endangered species?

    after all; you can feed yourselves, can't you?

    if folks one day said they wouldn't sell you power, clothing, shelter, food or utilities, you could "keep on keeping on", couldn't you???

    Black on Black Crime

    June 28, 2009

    I wrote this poem after seeing another story about a black man being shot by police. While the outrage was justified I wondered why we don’t see the same level of outrage when one young black man kills another.

    While police shootings and brutality are not the isolated incidents many try to make them out to be there is no comparison when it comes to the fact that black on black crime takes far more young black lives.

    Until we ourselves show that we care about this issue there will be no way to stop it.

    The Roots Of Black On Black Crime

    There is a strange confluence of conclusions among supposedly opposed political forces, on the subject of Black-on-Black crime. Why is it that most crimes committed by Blacks are committed against other Blacks? You will hear that question asked at gatherings of the most racist white reactionaries, and at great and grand convocations of African Americans of all political persuasions. In a perverse convergence of nonsensicality, very similar conclusions are usually drawn: Black culture, it is said, has somehow been fatally undermined, and that is the root of such high levels of Black-on-Black crime.

    White racists actually believe that Blacks are simply prone to criminality, and must be held in check through rigorous surveillance and the iron hand of a vast incarceration system. However, they rarely voice these base opinions so baldly, but instead blame welfare dependency and chinks in the armor of the criminal justice system as the culprit. These reactionaries are not really upset by the gruesome statistics of Black-on-Black crime, but rather, they celebrate them, as proof of white superiority.



    Blacks tend to moan and groan about ignorance and - above all - racial self-hatred, as the root cause of fratricide among African Americans. Blacks hate their condition and hate each other for being in it, the theory goes, and therefore lash out, brother against brother, and brother against sister, and so on.

    It's all nonsense. Black people don't hate themselves, or each other. We are all we've got, and in highly segregated communities, all we know. If African Americans committed crimes based on hate, we know who the victims would be: white people. But there is a great price to be paid for crimes against whites in this society. All the statistics show that the risks are extremely high, especially for acts of violence by Blacks against whites. For the career or novice Black criminal, the choices are clear: confine your crimes to your own community, and you will stand a chance of beating the system. Go outside, and the full weight of the state will come down on your head.

    American society devalues Black life, and every Black child knows it. Criminals operate within the parameters of the society in which they live, just like everybody else. They weigh their chances as they roll the dice. Every African American citizen in the nation understands that the dice are loaded mightily against them if they are convicted of a crime against a white person. It is only logical that the criminal-minded would choose Black targets of opportunity. After all, that's what white criminals did during Jim Crow. They were confident of impunity, when committing outrages against Black men and women. Why should Black criminals act any differently?

    Black-on-Black crime is a product of white racism, which sees African Americans as less than full human beings. The Black criminal takes advantage of that fact. From his point of view, it is quite a logical choice.
