NOTE: Sorry that this has nothing to do with the ALS Icebucket challenge, but this topic is needed and needs to be addressed and spread Socially like the ALS Icebucket Challenge.

Man o man there is a lot things going on in the world today. It’s to the point where any and every one who has an opinion is voicing it in his or her own way, which is good. However, there is a big difference in Social Media activism and Community Activism. The latter of the two i must even admit to being guilty of. Sure it’s cool to post intriguing/informative/Positive things on your newsfeed/wall/page. How many of us actually get our hands and feet dirty?. Every time there is an injustice against the communities consisting of mostly Minorities what do we do?. We are outraged to the point of disgust, yet nothing never happens. Yeah We’ll post it on on our personal Social Media outlets to get likes and thumbs up. We’ll March with the local community activists, mostly to say that we were there. It’s time for much more involvement by us all.

Black On Black Crime:

There is no doubt or debate that we have a real problem in the Black/African American Community. In fact it is an epidemic. The crime rate is and has always been staggering. We make a huge scene over someone in out community getting killed by a Cop or a White male, as we should right is right & wrong is wrong. Yet when it comes to killing each other we treat as if if it’s a right of passage. It happens so much we’ve become desensitized to these atrocities. It reminds me of the “N” word debate. We as Blacks feel like we have a cultural right to use it in our vocabulary without flack or feed back from one another. however, if a White person says the same thing we get offended, as we should. We have always for years felt like we’re targeted as criminals because we’re Black or Brown and we come from “bad neighborhoods”. Which is true to a large degree, we do get harassed and targeted by police. So how do we respond to this? we go around and shooting at each other for one reason or another. Basically, the question i’m asking is why is it so upsetting when the police shoot and kill us than when we shoot and kill each other?

Did You Know?

“In the 513 days between Trayvon dying, and today’s verdict, 11,106 African-Americans have been murdered by other African-Americans.”

NY Post Cover 8/23/14

NY Post Cover 8/23/14

This is The NY Post Response to what will be a peaceful March and Demonstration. They use every angle to discredit anything that supposed to be our American right to voice our opinion in a peaceful manner. Please keep in mind that the NY Post is owned by Rupert Murdoch the same person who owns Fox News Channel. No one is against the NYPD as a whole were against wrongdoing and injustice that is manifested throughout the NYPD Through it’s corrupt cops. We understand that every Cop isn’t a BAD cop. Just like they should understand every Black man is not a criminal. We would just like for them to held accountable for their illegal policing. NY Post you should be ashamed of yourself this is nothing short of trying to incite a riot in the Black Community. This is irresponsible reporting.

What is Death By Cop?

It seems like everyday there is a new story about a Police officer shooting and/or Killing a unarmed Black Man/Woman or Teen. We’ve seen it first hand on video here in NYC on Staten Island on July 17th, 2014 Eric Garner was illegally choked to death by the NYPD. This tragedy was caught on tape, we all have seen the video with our own two eyes. An autopsy report was done and confirmed what we all have seen that this man was Brutally murdered by the very people who’s main job is toserve and protect”. Then the NYPD union President Pat Lynch came a made statement refuting the autopsy report, all in the name of protecting his Union Member. This comes from a man who has never seen a Bad cop in his life they don’t exist in his world. I understand the importance of Union Representation but this is flat out ridiculous and you look very pathetic Mr. Lynch.

We would like for everyone to know that while we do understand the difficult job duties of police officers worldwide, it’s a tough job. However, it also needs to be also understood that they are held to a higher standard. There are just too many cases where the Police use and abuse their authority. The fact that we live in a 24 hour world where Social Media has singlehandedly  turned anyone with a smartphone into a reporter. Gone are the days of waiting to the evening news to come on just to find out what happened yesterday. We now have HD Cameras, they capture the truth. They can not be photo shopped or manipulated to help create a different truth. However, We’ve seen Pundits, professional critics take apart video frame by frame and becuase they’re considered “experts” we question them less.

The point we’re trying to make is this:

In the Eric Garner case it’s is Cut and Dry the video shows it all. This man was killed right in front of our very own eyes. Yet they still try to fool us with their crafty word play and legal maneuvering.

Eric Garner & Mike Brown

Eric Garner & Mike Brown

As for the Mike Brown case i find it very interesting that they would release the video of him in the store before they release the picture of the Officer. We’re very familiar with this trick, we get that they’re trying to plant the seed. But won’t work, no not this time. There is no actual live footage of the Mike Brown killing like the Eric Garner case, boy i wish there was because i’m so tired of these crooked cops getting away with Murder.

***************************************************************************************************************************************

Words can not express how heartbroken i am over these tragic events. All that is left now is for justice to be served.

WE RESPECT THE COPS, BUT IT’S TIME THEY START RESPECTING US AS WELL! #TellMeHowiLookNow
