No “all Black attire day” for the over 430 mostly young Black men and women who have been killed? In the meantime, check out the response during the Jena 6 episode.

Sorry, but the hypocrisy with this stuff makes me really want to puke.

A while ago I mentioned on this site that based on the reactions of most Americans, the only hope for value these young men and women have in life is being shot by a White man. Because other than that, they have become nothing more than comfortable statistics we like throw around to serve our little causes.

Heart Of The City: Chicago’s War On Violence

Although this stuff has been in the news all year, I’m glad to see BET devoting some attention to this issue.

    How long will it take , and what do we have to do as a people to stop this violence . Its a on going thing . It seems we have no sense of value , no sense of love and no purpose but to be self destructive.

    The senseless killing of our children should be a call to action for every adult to put a stop to it. We are the holders and keepers of our self and bear the responsibility.
