Date withheld. I think what a lot of people miss is that I'm legitimately angry about the people who get no attention. Not as a means to excuse what happened to Tyre (because there is no justification), but to say that it's complete and utter BS that nobody cares (to the same extent) about what happened to the 342 "nameless" individuals that lost their lives in Memphis last year . What would have a greater impact, saving one or saving as many of the 342 as we can? But instead we focus on the trivial, almost insignificant issue (unless it happens to your kids, of course) issue of police violence. You've probably heard the story about a friend of mine that works at one of the plants. Solid, solid black dude... raised in a good family, good dad to his boys even though he's no longer with their mom. He was legitimately worried about his sons being killed by the cops. Dude, you've got young men growing up in PAT where a couple dozen men get murdered every year, but i can't remember the last time someone was killed by the police. But I CAN promise you that no matter how many die from the dawn of time, you'll have never seen anything like the mess that will break out if somebody gets killed by a cop in PA. I good friend of mine used to say "y'all worried about the wrong s_ _ _. " Approximately six unarmed black men are killed by the police each year in the US. That's six out of the 7000 black men killed in the US each year. Statistically speaking, an unarmed black man is three times more likely to be killed by lighting than killed by a cop. That's the way that I feel whenever the world screeches to a stop over a horrible incident like what happened to Tyre. Getting murdered happens to 20 black men every single day in America and nobody cares. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
