This is a strawman. You manufactured a point and posed an argument against a point that isn't mind.I gather from all of this that your answer is that the criminal justice system should turn a blind eye to crime within our community?
Assuming that the 'they' are the white supremist who run the justice system, they allow all these things not because they "should", but because it serves their interest that we stay messed up in order for them to dominate us.They should allow those who sell drugs to our people to do so unabated, those who murder our young men over drugs and trivial internal squables should be allowed to roam free among us to murder
What you refer to as blame, I refer to as an attempt to get at the root of our problem with regard to violence and criminality. And in doing so does not exsolve us of our responsibilites.Now, you can blame anyone and everyone in the world that you want to...that doesn't solve the problem
If you agree that your afrikan anscestors did not come over here as morally corrupt as you find some of their descendants today, then what happend? If you agree that there was a time in this country when the family unit was tight, then what happend? If you, aren't willing to grapple with that then much of what you say is merely tangential.
However, I will submit that continuing to ask these questions:
..."Doesn't solve the problem", either. I will even hazard to say, you know why.Why is there no outcry internally calling for those who are murdering, stealing, selling poison, and initiating violence within our community to stop doing so??? Why is the only outcry directed towards those who are working to seperate those who are doing these things from those of us who are victims of these things????
There has been, and is, an outcry.
The fault is we, too many of us -that is, are looking at this matter linearly and not holistically. The acts of crime and violence does not happen in a vacuum.
What I propose is that we as a nation within a nation, seriously reappraise and analyze the origins of our condition with respect to violence and criminality. Take that information gain from the analysis and teach it to our children, especially our young black males. If we don't do that then we will continue to "deal with the individuals who are committing those crimes".I want to know HOW you propose we solve the problem of crime in our communities that are destructive to us if you don't deal with the individuals who are committing those crimes???
This hasn't changed.I remember years back when a Brother would end up dead and there where no witnesses, we knew the murderer would never be found because we felt white policemen did not care about a dead Brother enough to conduct a true and diligent investigation. We faulted the police for this.
No.Now, there of those among us who want to flip this script...rather than faulting the police for not caring about crime within our community, we are faulting them for arresting and prosecuting those who are committing destructive crimes within our community.
We aren't faulting the cops for doing their jobs under the law, it's when they act above the law in our community and get away with it is when we get upset.
And even when we are wrong in our accusations against the cops, it is deeply rooted in the historic track record of police brutality and gangsterism demonstrated by the cops in particular, the justice system in particular where black folks are conserned.
It is not what he does with regard to crime in the black nation, but analyzing what he does and how he is doing it and why. That's what I want us to do. Then use that information as tools to significantly wound the beast that is crime and violence black communities that works in the interest of white supremacy.What do you expect of the white man as far as crime within the Black community? What do you want him to do?
