WE don’t care about Black lives.*

WE meaning the Black Chicago community. Is it possible for us to say that WE care, at least with straight face and not looking now at our shoes?


When the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney’s Office hosted a public forum on conducting an investigation on the Chicago Police Department at Malcolm X College, on 30 people were in attendance in a room that had the capacity to hold hundreds. According to a June issue of The North Lawndale Community News, “At these forums, the DOJ provides information about their investigative process, advise people on how they can contact DOJ, and offer time for community members to speak about their experiences, good or bad, with the Chicago Police Department. And, obviously, missed opportunity for our community watchdogs to have vital input in determining a much needed structure to deal with the cold blooded murder of unarmed people and the failure to prosecute the officers.


I recently read that Black Lives Matter is posed to protest at the upcoming Democratic National Convention. Does that matter? Maybe it is just generates more publicity to forge ahead with that agenda, than to sit at the table with representatives from DOJ and the U.S. Attorney’s Office? What? No loud talking, no chanting, no singing, no screaming, no cameras?


I’m going to take the position that WE just did not know of these meetings. I did not know and I was not in attendance. But, I won’t have that same excuse next time and nor will you.

  1. I can answer the question:
    Do blacks care about “black lives matter”?
    No we do not!!
    The only thing we care about is
    Who takes em…and making a grandstand
    performance in the form of demonstrations, and a lotta loud, media attracting rhetoric.
    If black people really cared about black lives mattering; they would’ve done something about it….on their own if necessary…long before now.
    The only time black lives matter to black folks is when its “whites doing the killin”
    …and the only reason they feel free to do it is because thats the only kinda killin that gets blacks rattled up enough to wanna: “burn down america”.
    If black lives matter to blacks..
    then all these murders happening in the
    black community, would at least netted
    some persons of interest if not bonifide suspects long before now.
    Yet a black can spit on the sidewalk in a predominently white community and be picked up and arrested in less than 24 hours evidence bagged&tagged!
    Y’see the whole thing is very simple.
    The black community knows who the shooters are and where they can be found.
    They know whose trafficking the dope
    and where they are.
    You can’t tell me that of all these murders
    that have occurred over the past 6-12 months on a daily basis…that the criminals
    have been so precise and clean enough not to have left not one shred of evidence at the crime scene to give the police “a person of interest or a suspect? C’mon now!
