    There was a time when we stood together and at least GOT TOGETHER when **** like this happened. There was a time when our leaders actually made sacrifices and spoke out against this racist caste system that leads to the murder of our young men, disenfranchisement and disrespect of our black women, and ultimate destruction of our black community. At least our artists would, like Nina Simone, Bob Marley, Tupac, Dead Prez, Lauryn Hill, Eryka, etc.. But I'm not hearing too much right now in that way.

    Why do you think that is?

    I don't know.. where you been?..

    ... and how effective has that been anyway? ..getting together ..our singers singing songs.. and our speakers speaking speeches.. ? at some point your going to have to realize that brutalizers can't be shamed.. or sang.. or spoke.. or guilted out of their brutality. This is what they do.. and we are who they do it too.. And at some point we are going to realize that they actually like the noise we make of our pain.. it's part of their emotional payoff. They like to know that what they are doing is hurting us.. it is, afterall, why they do it--to hurt us.

    Believe it or not there is a whole lot of support and people that are ready and willing to lay down their life for this cause, but people are more worried about the wrong things like what is trending on twitter,etc....
    We are focus only on material things than the life of another brother.
    I wonder do we still believe that "WE ARE OUR BROTHERS KEEPER"?
    Is we still seeking light with in the darkness ? or "We still rejecting that stone"?
    We are worry about amassing fortunes for ourselves but we losing the very ones that we admire and love.

    What is there to gain from riches when we are about to lose our soul?
    Life is precious, and how I see it without being eerie and insensitive but we have a date with death.
    I rather die knowing that I did something that either improve,help,or sustain my brother then hold him back or harm him in his course of life.

    This community has been here through all of these deaths, providing a place for us to get together.

    If you do a search, you'll find discussions on them all, as they played out.

    OMG! There it is! There's your answer! Many have become numbed and deceived to believe they have a savior...and slowly by and by nevertheless, we are being picked off...targeted...one by one, group by group...while the numbness is still there. This system has given us a candidate, and many believe that he will save them...so there is no need to come together if this is the mindset, I suppose.
