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.
