For the record, Black folks in
We know exactly why we’re being killed by Latinos in
And no, that doesn’t make us racist either, but facts are facts. You do not turn on the news and hear daily about Black killing Latinos. It’s almost always the other way around.
The latest casualties of this low level race riot being a 6-year-old Black boy who was shot in the head when two men flashed gang signs and opened fire on the SUV the boy was riding in. Days earlier, 17-year-old football standout Jamiel Shaw Jr. was gunned down on the sidewalk near his home, allegedly by a member of the notorious
Federal prosecutors last year charged members of a Latino gang with a violent campaign to drive blacks out of the unincorporated Florence-Firestone neighborhood, which allegedly resulted in 20 homicides over several years.

Just because you don’t admit to it, doesn’t make it not so or go away.
The fact is, we have a group of people in
All they’re doing is making the man’s job easier. I’ll liken it to conservative commentator and constant shit talker Rush Limbaugh’s Operation Chaos. No need to do anything, they’ll do it to themselves.
Well in today’s Daily Breeze, after weeks of suggesting that victims were not targeted because of their race, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and police Chief William Bratton said race may have played a role in the city’s recent wave of shootings.
No shit Sherlock. Even Stevie could have seen that.
So what are we going to do about it?
