I’m sorry people, but I have to attack black tonight.
We all know by now about the mass shooting in Philly this past Wednesday. Six police officers shot, an entire neighborhood put on lock down, and one urban terrorist with a rap sheet as long as Broad Street keeping an entire city and community in a state of fear and terror for damn near three hours. (He was firing shots out of a trap house while little children in the area were being let out from their day- care for crying out loud!)
Fortunately for all those involved , there was no loss of life, and the urban terrorist was taken alive. (Shout out to Philly’s police chief for a job well done.)
So having said all that, I am mad at my people tonight because I was shocked to hear that some folks in the community were actually holding a rally on behalf of….wait for it….wait for it…..the urban terrorist who allegedly created all of this mayhem and chaos in the first place. Now why in the name of Huey P. Newton would folks march to protest his treatment at the hands of police? It seems to me that the folks in our various communities should be coming together to figure out just what in the hell is going on with these young bucks who have no respect for human life. There were five more injured in one shooting incident yesterday. And I am quite sure that there will be more just like this in the days to come.
The chaotic and lengthy shootout that played out in the Nicetown-Tioga neighborhood Wednesday left six police officers injured and captured national attention.
Richard Ross, the city’s police commissioner, said cops would show up at the Friday night demonstration in North Philadelphia, according to KYW-TV. “There’s certain marches I do understand, this is definitely not one of them,” Ross said.”
I couldn’t agree with the commissioner more
My brothers and sisters, this is not a hill you want to die on. It diminishes the real struggle for social justice when we rally around urban terrorists who do not deserve our support.
