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!!
