Extinction of the African American Male #3 EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN OPINION, HERES MINE….

Freddie Gray R.I.P. my brother, you were done an injustice. You will be missed, many loved you. May God rest your soul. Freddie Gray was a 27-year-old man from the Gilmore housing projects, with a troubled past (his lengthy drug rap sheet).  Now until the investigation is over we won’t know the truth or maybe then we still won’t know. God knows. There’s a lot of questions and opinions surrounding the day of his arrest. Now here’s mine. There were six officers which five have given a statement and one has not. Three officers on bikes I assume patrolling the Gilmore housing projects ( home to Gray) saw Gray and one of the officers made eye contact with Gray and for whatever reason he ran (maybe it was the illegal switch blade in his pocket he was carrying for protection).  The three officers pursued after Gray while calling for back up. Once other officers arrived Gray stopped running and they went on to arrest him. He must have argued and resisted arrest, because by the time they dragged him to the paddy wagon he was screaming in agony and had no use of his legs.
Now in my opinion based on the video footage, they rough housed him because he resisted arrest. One of the officers had to drop down on his neck with their knee because by the time they pulled him up from the  ground he was screaming a pain filled scream, and had no use of his legs.

Based on Democracy Now T.V. reporters, Freddie Gray died because of a spinal injury, his voice box was crushed, and his spine was 80% severed. Videos show Gray screaming in agony from the original arrest; which leads me to believe his illegal police ride with no restraints only leg restraints only contributed to his spinal injury which ultimately led to his death. Gray had his Civil Rights violated. This one was widely reported, but since 2011 Baltimore has paid out roughly $6.3 million for police misconduct cases, while the Police Union sits back and defends these officers. Attorney for the Union says the police did nothing wrong.
Look 80% of the prison system is Black yet only 28% occupy the state. Extinction, Gentrification, whatever you may want to call it. I’m gonna call it how I see it as unfair.

Brothers if you are reading this, step up and encourage your alcoholic or hustler friend, your little brother, your womanizing cousin, abusive uncle, brother in-law and most of all your sons to do the right thing. Encourage them to be strong role models for others encourage them to be men to their kids and their woman. Most of all encourage the family unit.

Extinction of the African American Male #2

I recently heard a story that frightened my soul, and shook me to the core. But it is not one that I have not heard before. It’s one that happens over and over, year after year. This story is about a young man named M.J., and M.J. was full of life and very liked, he knew everyone and everyone knew him. He had been a victim of a few closely related homicides. Specifically more recent he had suffered the lost of a female friend, I believe her name was Latavia. She was shot in cold blood at her birthday party at 14, she was caught in the crossfire between two gangs. So in turn M.J. started a movement against violence, because he was a talented rapper he rapped against violence. What I don’t understand is how such a positive movement, could bring such HATE and EVIL. His movement actually started a beef, with a rival rap group. M.J.’s real name is Mustafa, Mustafa made a song about his friend Latavia and weeks later he was beat up to an inch of his life. I guess this was a sign to try and discourage or stop him. This did not stop his movement, without looking for retaliation or to save face in the mean Chicago streets, he kept rapping for change. Two boys caught him coming from the library and shot him to death. They took that young man from his community, where he had a positive impact; not like we have much of that going on in those types of communities. They took that young man from his loving sister and mother. He was a beautiful soul; and may God bless his soul. These young men are killing merciless, like it’s there birthright. I can give all kinds of examples of ruthless, heartless and mislead young black men that feel like killing his own, earns him some sort of stripes. Where does this behavior come from? What kind of mentality is it to think because you don’t get along with somebody from L st. and you live on K st. you can end their life. You can’t get along simple……. MOVE!!

Explain this to me please. Is it racist?

I was browsing craigslist free section and could not help myself, curiosity definitely killed the cat. I had to figure out the difference between a white woman shirt and a black woman’s. Look at it its a plain white t-shirt is this racist?

Extinction of the African American Males

Honestly its all in my opinion. I feel as though there has been put down, what I like to call a blue print. See, before they had slavery, you know that “divide and conquer crap”. You had Black people who served in the house and blacks who served in the field. White men secretly impregnating the black woman and separating the home of the black man and beating him in front of his woman. All of these things play a collective roll on the mentality of the black man, now there is modern-day slavery, after black people were kidnapped and brought here they physically built up everything and now what needed to be done by blacks is done. The boundaries we past and hurdles we’ve leaped over was never expected.  I say modern-day slavery is where we do all the dirty work (bad jobs), servile work you know what I mean. Desk jobs administrative assistants for their companies. Construction still building up their businesses, restaurant jobs dishwashers, car washers, cab and limo drivers, to pay us only enough for rent and gas to make it back and forth to work, some black people and there families have these jobs and still can’t eat. Then you have the young people in the hood who are effected by this gentrification process and really believe that hustling or killing off the enemy is cool. DIVIDE AND CONQUER. They feel like our time here is done, they want us gone and that is why they lock up our men and sleep with our women. Now there killing our kids in cold blood. What does the black man have to aspire to? When all blocks are stacked against him? He’s raised in a single parent home mainly only the woman, lacking the essence of the male presence which for a boy or young man it is very essential. Then he has the system ready to hand him life for anything he find himself in, giving them charges different from what they give white boys or white young men. Coming from a family which cannot afford college. All sorts of steps and blocks, I can go on all day but the point is to say even beyond the lack of black people fighting, there is also a blue print plan against them. IVE SEEN IT WITH MY OWN EYES!
