The black community and the art of "Misdirecton".
Misdirection " is a form of deception in which the attention of an audience is focused on one thing in order to distract its attention from another".
Some black folks get it while many others are just shy of being labeled as weapon's grade stupid and never will get it. Michael Browns death however tragic for his family and friends is an external distraction for blacks to not focus on their real problems, misdirection. The total for young blacks who were killed in just Chicago alone over the past decade exceeds over 5,000. Here in Baltimore, over 220 blacks on average are killed each year. I get sick and tired of listening to excuse makers who try to down play the murder rate when it's black on black yet do everything possible to over exaggerated when "a shooting" is white on black mainly in a law enforcement incident. Here's a statistic I would like to get a hold of. If someone has this information please let me know. I would definitely appreciate it.I would like to know how many black children have been killed by law enforcement. I know in the cases of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, their supporters tried to present them as innocent "children" who were gunned down in cold blood by racist whites. When I mean child, I am talking about a person under 12 years old. I would also like to know how many black children 12 years old or younger have been killed by other blacks over the past decade. Would it be premature to claim that a young black child's life is far more likely to come to a tragic and violent end at the barrel of a gun being held by a young black male as opposed to law enforcement? Chicago is a dangerous place to be if you are black. It's like being a Christian living living in Iraq. It's that bad and then some. I believe the statistic would support that overwhelmingly. I came across a story that really got to me and made me pause. Black mothers are good at using their kids to hold up protest signs,when a cop is involved in a shooting of a black young adult, but those signs appear to be absent when a young black child is shot and killed by another black. A 9 year old Chicago boy Antonio Smth was shot several times and died in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood yesterday. No suspects have been arrested. I'm sure the no justice no peace rallies demanding Antonio's Smith's killer is brought to justice. (sarcasm) A violent thug's death in Fugerson is more important of course. Well actually it's not, it's just the race of the shooter that mater silly me. I hope they do find the killer of Antonio Smith,
Here in Baltimore two weeks ago, a 3 year old black girl McKenzie Elliott was shot and killed as she sat on the steps of her house on York Road in North Baltimore.
Two black males got into a shootout , and one of the bullets hit McKenzie. I will give the Police Commissioner Anthony Bates and Mayor Stephaine Rawling Blake credit for stepping up and speaking out on this murder. However, this was not news worthy to go national of course for "obvious reasons".Well at least the Waverly Community dedicated their annual night out in her honor. Local radio talk show host Clarance Mitchel the 4th which we all call him C4 asked the question which made perfect sense. Idiots here in Baltimore held a rally downtown in honor of Michael Brown in Fugerson Missouri, yet there was no rally calling for justice for McKenzie Elliott. I called in basically calling these blacks misguided hypocrites. If the country ever becomes a police state in which martial law is the rule of the land, then blacks would have something to have a grievance about. Until then, they should focus on the real problems face them, and it's in the mirror and in their community, and they are holding guns.
