People fall so in love with their pain, they can’t leave it behind. The same as the stories they tell. We trap ourselves.

I’m seeing a pattern

It’s funny because Black folks like this act like the Black community is ignoring the crime in our community. Trust me, we are not. You’re just not paying attention.

The only time they bitch about us ignoring “Black on Black” crime is when we bring forth the conversation about police murdering innocent folks. Yet these same fucks remain silent and non existent when we’re marching on the street calling for the violence to stop in our community.

Can’t win for shit

One has to wonder if they are actually doing something about the so called “black on black crimes” or do they just like to complain and shift the focus/blame.

theyre never out here! I see the everyday Black folk participating in the community that actually give a fuck about the crime. I know in my city we have walks, protests, town halls damn near every week. Folks rather complain about crime while shifting blame to “those niggas over there”

My main issue with their mentality is that it completely ignores what happens as a result of black on black crime.

"What about black on black crime?" they ask.  Well, people DO get arrested. Black people receive punishments for their crimes. Prisons are filled with black people who are serving time. Do they think any police departments/prosecutors/judges are letting known black killers walk around free? Hell no. The criminal system doesn’t waste a chance to make an example of the black male.

The protests, riots, and attention that is trying to be called to these cop killings of black people is because these killers are NOT being punished. AT ALL.
