This is a sensitive post for me, but I am thinking it, so fuck it, I am going to write it.
Over the weekend, three incidents that made national news pissed me off and disappointed me on so many levels that I really don't know where to begin.
But let me start with the animal in Memphis who killed his brother and five other people including some of his brother's children (he just returned home from prison). Like what the fuck is wrong with our people? Look, I live in Killadelphia, and killings and murders are nothing new to me. But when I see stories like this I really have to wonder what the hell is wrong with us. And before you give me the white people do it too comments and e-mails, save it; I really don't care what white people do. There are plenty of white folks investing a lot of time and energy in trying to cure whatever ills they have.
Then there is this Negro in Alabama who allegedly killed this 18 year old Auburn coed (he just returned from Iraq). This clown is being charged with kidnapping,robbery, and attempted rape as well. And didn't you just know they were going to find this girl's killer? She was a white college student in Alabama for crying out loud! Could the National Guard have been far behind? Don't laugh, the Governor offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the young lady's killer soon after the shooting. How many folks that were killed in the hood in cities like Birmingham or Mobile do you think the good Governor offered a reward for? I won't hold my breath waiting for the answer. But I seriously digress. And I shouldn't be making political points on the back of this poor victim. Still, there is a post in there somewhere and maybe one day I will revisit it.
The third incident happened in North Carolina where a 22 year old college student was found shot to death on a Chapel Hill street. Again, some dumb ass Negro is a "person of interest", and even if this clown didn't kill the woman, his dumb ass was caught on video using her ATM card. Again, this woman belonged to the most protected class in A-merry-ca; a white woman (yes Hillary, a white woman), and this ignoramus chose to fuck around and end up with her ATM card, and even worse, he might have killed her.
Three incidents all giving me reason to pause and shake my head at the state of this country. But I have been saying it all along: if we don't do something to clean up some of the problems facing certain segments of the population, some of the shit we see happening in the hood everyday is going to start carrying over into WSZ (white safety zones), and then the war on terror will take on a whole different meaning. What are all the scared A-merry-cans going to do then? Build a wall around every major urban area? Hmmmm, I am sure the thought has crossed their minds.
So my heart goes out to all the victims and their families from the incidents that I mentioned. I hope that justice will be served and that their killers will be forced to face the consequences of their actions. But I also hope that as a society at large we will never be forced to face the consequence of ours.
