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.
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.
