Gods lil Angels died... Those other kids that were killed? Thier culture killed them

Let me start off by saying that I am not diminishing the deaths of those innocent, beautiful children up in Connecticut.

 I am not turning this into "race thing". Those kids that were killed by that loony tune do not deserve that. They need to be remembered for what they were..Beautiful..Innocent Children.They were taken from their family and loved ones by a bastard that was too cowardly to live to face up to his bullshit.

Having said that....

I have to stay real with what I believe... And this is not  meant for my white readers (if I have any) but  my Black readers.. If we don't value our lives and the lives of our children.. How in 7 bloody hells can we expect anybody else to? We have to do better son!

There have been mass killings by cowards with guns in every major city in every state in this country.

There have been other innocent beautiful children killed by the HUNDREDS in this country this year alone.

And until now, not one one serious word has been spoken about gun control. Our president has not attended funerals and wiped away faux tears in front of the cameras..He has not given a statement saying that "we cannot endure this any longer". Politicians were not on every major news station in the country getting in their politically correct soundbites. The senseless killings that have taken so many people from their loved ones too damn early this year and decades before...all by people with guns mind you...did not make the national news.

So what is the difference now? Why the uproar about gun control now? Why is Hollywood delaying movie premiers now?

I know why... At least this is my opinion anyway.

It's simple...

8 year old Jamal and Tyiseha getting killed in a botched drive-by by a bunch of drug dealing gang-bangers in front of a school in South Dallas is not as news worthy as 8 year old Dillon and Meagan getting killed in a school out in the suburbs by a " good guy"  with mental issues from a stable home.

See the difference?

See.. Jamal and Tyiseha were killed because of their "violent culture". That is what "they" do in those neighborhoods. "Those" neighborhoods are nothing but drug dens and Ho houses anyways.

But Dillon and Meagan? They were not supposed to die so young.. They came from a good home..went to a good school.  They had a bright future. How can this happen here?

Jamal and Tyiseha's killers were criminals that embrace the gang life and have no desire to live in a "civilized" society. They had every opportunity like everyone else to do right..but they chose to not get right.

Dillon and Meagan's killer was a "good guy" that was never in any trouble with the law. He had "minor" mental health issues and he must have been off his meds. They can't believe he did this. He was an "All-American" boy.  There was no indication that he was a damn fruit-cake.

Jamal and Tyiseha's killers are the prime reason why everyone needs to be armed. Kill them before they come into "our" neighborhoods and kill us.

Dillon and Meagan's cowardly ass killer? Shit... Guns don't kill people.. Black People Kill people.

This country is a nation of hypocrites. We value one life over another life simply because of skin color. This not only applies to the White people in this country... But Black people too. We see killings in our communities everyday and we go about our lives like this is what's hot.. Like this is how it is. And we act like nobody can talk about it. Let a White reporter mention anything about our failures as a community and the race card is thrown like a penalty flag at a football game. Like we don't want our dirty draws in the streets for the "others " to smell.

 But let Becky and Cody die senselessly? 60 miles from where we cross the street to avoid making eye contact with people? Shit.... we act like the world is going to end.

This is that bullshit.

And I am tired of it.

You know you have white readers. They want to keep tabs on what we are thinking. I agree wholeheartedly with what you said. White folks are a precious commodity but we are target practice.

They have shown and proven themselves to be the crazy individuals yet they get all kinds of special treatment. I heard a newscaster call Lanska the suspected shooter. A white man who was watching me play angry birds said the CT shooter played games. REALLY? They always get a pass.

"You know you have white readers."

Yes he does. I am one of them


"They want to keep tabs on what we are thinking."

Reading a blog written by a black man means I am "keeping tabs" on black folks just because I'm white? I didn't know my skin color automatically made me the equivalent of some Federal agent snooping about.

I read BlackMan's View because Dirty Red writes stuff I find worthwhile reading...whether we agree on particular issues or not. And yes, since we belong to a different culture, race and continent, getting an inside view into the thoughts and opinions of the other is fascinating.


"White folks are a precious commodity but we are target practice."

I must confess this one made me laugh when I read it; because sadly it is true over there in a dark humorous way.

Wherever you look around in the world, the dominant culture is always going to be more concerned about *their* precious little ones that the little ones of the *other*. White Americans are horrified at a massacre of white kids but concern about "Jamal and Tyiseha" getting shot to bits on their own ethnic neighborhood is the furthest thing from their minds...the same way Japanese folks in Japan get really anguished about a terrible event that kills several Japanese while not caring that much about a couple of, say, Vietnamese immigrants getting whacked. It is simple Tribalism, a natural human reaction. Not pretty, not nice, but pretty natural.

I will give a variation on this theme to show even culture affects the level of emotion felt on these issues:

One of the kids that survived the shooting over there was the son of Portuguese immigrants.

Now, how do I do this? Because I live in Portugal, and the kid being a little Portuguese angel, he got handed extra-special time and space in the Portuguese media reporting of the shooting, as did his parents, family, etc.

Now what were the European heritages of the other survivors? Or of the 20 child-victims themselves for that matter? Where there any Swedes or French?

"Who the f*ck cares?!" pretty much sums up the answer our national media would give you.

It a bit like a variation of "Animal Farm": All precious little angels are equally precious...but *our* precious little angels are more precious than yours.


"A white man who was watching me play angry birds said the CT shooter played games. REALLY? They always get a pass."

Yes, there is always someone coming up with excuses for criminals instead of looking at the evil within the perpetrator, BUT this happens across all racial lines.

If it's a white or asian kid shooting up a school or mall then the blame lies with the "videogames" they played and the "medication" they were taking for their "social anxiety" and the violent "rock music" they listened to, plus the parent's "divorce" and whatever, yadda, yadda.

If it's a black kid committing crimes then its the fault of "poverty" and lack of "education" and "rap music". Oh, and "white oppression" and "SLAVERY!!!"

It's all bull as far as I am concerned. Call me crazy, but I think most people that do terrible things do them because they where terrible people to begin with.

We live in a violent society where obtaining automatic weapons and handguns isn't really that difficult.

So why are we surprised when things like this happen?!?

Yeah people die everyday in this country. Everyday children get killed by a legal weapon. And everyday some woman gets raped in this country; and yet when she's blonde haired and blue eyed it does seem to grab the attention of the media.

However it happens, it's a tragedy and it's a tragedy that will continue because of the large numbers of automatic weapons and handguns in our society. It will continue to happen because people would rather have school teachers carrying guns, than banning them.

If this country is looking to blame someone, they should start with the mirror.

Vargr said...

Reggie, take it from someone who knows because he lives in a violent society where obtaining automatic weapons and handguns is next to impossible:

If you disarm yourselves that will not stop children from getting killed or women from getting raped.
The killer or rapist can just use a knife or even his fists. But most likely he will use a gun anyway, because criminals don't two hoots about gun-control laws.

Also, the tragedy of people dying in traffic accidents will continue to happen because people would rather have the convenience of driving a car than walking with their legs. So let us ban cars too, right?

I mean, cars are involved in lot more deaths in your country than guns. If the basis of your argument is "people are dying because of X so we must ban it" you *have* to be in favor of banning cars and consider it a priority over banning guns.

Doing otherwise is hypocritical, or silly; or both.

Serenity, Reggie and Vagr,

This pretty much sums up my whole post. Well said Vagr.. But I have to say this though... Ain't nothing "pretty natural" about it. It's bullshit.. Pure Baby back unfiltered, bullshit...
