Quite some time ago, Richard Pryor, the late and great comedian, explained his drug addiction with an explanation of how society works. It was delivered in the typical comical fashion, but the message, was enough to raise more than a few eyebrows.
Pryor stated, when something in the Black community, drugs, crime, or whatever is confined to the community, society looks on it as nothing unusual, but when it spills out into society, it becomes an epidemic and requires immediate attention.
Beginning with Trayvon Martin, crime within the boundaries of the Black community took on a whole new, and different appearance. George Zimmerman, Hispanic, but sold as White, didn’t have the right to kill an unarmed, but racially motivated, angry youth, who would have eventually ended up where he is now.
After Martin’s shooting, retaliation murders has spilled out of the community. It’s responsible for the deaths a 13 month old baby in Georgia, an Australian college student in Oklahoma, a WW II veteran in Spokane, Washington and the latest report is, two women in Wilmington, Del., were raped by a mob of 12 Black teenagers.
Recently, it was reported, Richard Schmidt, a convicted felon and with ties to White Supremacist, was arrested for being in possession of 18 guns, 40,000 rounds of ammunition and a bullet proof body armor. He was also in possession of a ‘to kill’ list of Black and Jewish leaders.
According to leaders in the community, Blacks are tired of being overlooked by society. Black leaders tell them to trust in them, and they will trust in Liberalism to help find the missing link for acceptance, which is something that’s been sitting on a dusty shelf for some time now.
Here’s a thought, how will the community fair against an army of Schmidts, heavy weapons and tactical expertise? Black on White crime is becoming an epidemic and it requires immediate attention.
It’s time for Black leaders and their communities to check out their minds, which is something everybody involved in this impending disaster, has forgot they have. A mind use to be a terrible thing to waste, now it’s something the community, or it’s leaders never had. It’s almost as if, a mind is against the law.
