A "teachable moment" about black on black crime in my city of Baltimore.

I know I'm going to get hell for writing this. Oh well, it'll give me something to do. Yesterday in my non beloved liberal infested rat hole known as "Harm City", Eighteen people were shot in a span of just twenty four hours. One of the victims was a two year old infant. Two people died in the shootings. The Drudge Report had the story posted on their website this morning. The Baltimore City Police is saying that the shootings were "drug related". Gee, I wonder what their first guess was? When I first heard about the shootings, the first word that popped into my mind was "embarrassing". That really isn't saying much for Baltimore. Some how Baltimore always seem to find a way of making the Hall of Shame. Henry Gates wanted to talk about his arrest being symbolic of what happens to black men. Yesterday and everyday in cities across America is symbolic of what happens to blacks men. They are shot and murdered by other blacks. The 18 blacks that were shot yesterday weren't shot by the Klu Klux Klan or the Aryan Brotherhood. They weren't shot by MS-13 members. They were shot by other blacks. This is mainly what many blacks don't want to hear. The old saying from the book "Sun Tzu's The Art of War" is "Know Your Enemy". Most blacks don't realize that their true enemies are "themselves". It's odd how the people who won't candy coat the truth are normally the ones mocked and ridiculed the most. A liberal troll posted on my YouTube video about Henry Gate the other day. He posted about how he felt that the judicial system is unfair to blacks, because more blacks are in prison as compared to any other racial group. I responded by telling him to review the ten most violent cities in America. All of those cities share something in common. They have black majority populations. I told him to try and dispute what I said, and he couldn't do it. In typical fashion he quickly changed the topic. If I placed Henry Gate's arrest on one side of a two tiered scale and the shooting of the 18 blacks here in Baltimore on the other side of the scale, which one should weigh out more in importance? Jesse and Al would drop everything to get some air time if requested for an interview by the media on the arrest of Henry Gates. They wouldn't show up for what happened yesterday in Baltimore though. The black politicians, clergy and activists are nowhere to be found. Maybe they're staked out at the residence of Henry Gates. A black loud mouth was arrested by a white cop, and it made national news, yet this story of 18 blacks getting shot won't nowhere make the news "worthiness" level as the story of Henry Gates. I know why that is. It truly does come down to race. Blacks and the media only care about what happens to a black victim when the attacker or accuser is "white". I know full well if three racist white guys drove into Baltimore City and opened fire on 18 blacks, the incidents would be the lead in stories for all the media for days if not weeks. So does a black life only hold value when that person is negatively impacted by a person that is "white"?

Your post makes me sad. The alleged "black leaders" are nowhere to be found as the black-on-black crimes are creating a modern day calamity. This coupled with the fact that nearly 70% of all black children are born with no father makes for a bleak outlook. It is my belief that "black leaders" should start talking more about "personal responsibility" and "personal accountability" and less about "slavery", "racism" and "police brutality". These alleged "black leaders" should be pounding the pulpit demanding that people stop fathering children out of wedlock, demanding that people reject the thug lifestyle, demanding that people educate themselves and free themselves from generational welfare and make their situations better. I personally believe that the black church should quit pandering to the Democratic party and all of its entitlements and start preaching morality and accountability. My beliefs are not politically correct but I believe in them.

Black and White liberals have a warped notion that I take pleasure writing about this kind of stuff Mr. Tent. It is sad to report it, but the race hustling poverty pimps won't say anything about the "REAL" problems in black communities, because "THERE IS NO PROFIT POTENTIAL IN IT" for them. If I posted my comments on the BET website and left my email address, my email account would be flooded with mostly every letter calling me either a "sellout" or a "uncle tom". This is the insanity at work. Gangsta rap music does have a negative impact on young blacks. Henry Gates defended the garbage put out by the 90's rap group "2 Live Crew". Gates is presented as a "prominent African American Scholar". while people like Bill Cosby are labeled as "sellouts".The Demcorat Party could care less about black Mr. Tent. As long as they "know their role" and pull the lever for them every election cycle, all is right as rain in their eyes.

Why didn't you mention the local NAACP and Black church leaders again asking for Black men to mentor kids in Baltimore?

When they had a meeting about 1 month ago to get Black men in Baltimore to help with the problem, did you attend?

How about when the local NAACP and other groups in Baltimore tried to organize neighborhood watch groups? Did you volunteer?

I weep for the children in these communities where this calamity is taking place. This is madness. You are not an "uncle tom" or a "sell out". You are a man who tells the truth. God loves people of truth and God says that the truth will "set you free". So who is really in bondage?

Darkstart "Why didn't you mention the local NAACP and Black church leaders again asking for Black men to mentor kids in Baltimore?

With black men being the problem, what are they going to mentor kids about Darkstar? Are they going to mentor them on how to "follow in their footsteps"? You're talking about the "local" NAACP, why hasn't the NATIONAL NAACP spoke out on this Darkstar? They've had the time to write reports on "global warming", how about something of importance? Black on black crime isn't a "local" issue, it's a national issue. Do you believe that the Henry Gates story warranted "national attention" Darkstar?
Black men that have their heads on right have mentored black children, but problems facing blacks is far more problem some then what mentoring can counter react. The question is where are these so called black leaders when "real problems" demand a response from them?

Darkstar "When they had a meeting about 1 month ago to get Black men in Baltimore to help with the problem, did you attend?"

Did you atend Darkstar? If so, good for you. I didn't even know anything about it. I guess it must didn't get much press support for it. Talking about the problem is the first step in dealing with it. Many blacks don't even want to do that. The problems are a "cultural" in nature not just "local" Darkstar.

I mentioned a story about a Liberian girl being raped by four black youths and that story didn't get as much coverage as the Henry Gates Story. The story of 18 people being gunned downed is just as tragic all the reason I find these so called Black leaders to be nothing more than Charlatans and Shills for the Democrat Party!

Madness there are many black women
on your side or with you. Black women will suffer the most from Socialized America. Adolph Hitler's father was a Communist and was much older than his wife. Hitler hated his father whose abused him, Obama saw his father at age 10. The man died in an accident while intoxicated. He died an atheist.

Trash I agree the black church should teach the Bible, not what they FEEL like. The Bible said no fornication, adultery, killing, How can they teach this when they are doing the wrong.

I know some blacks who can read and write at age 2-3 because they were taught by their parents.

Since you live in Baltimore and are a Black man, I guess you are part of the problem?

Is Israel Cason part of the problem? How about the Black men involved with The Algebra Project?

You're talking about the "local" NAACP, why hasn't the NATIONAL NAACP spoke out on this Darkstar?

The locals do the local hands on work. It's interesting that the local NAACP is doing what you whine isn't being done and you don't even give credit.


Black men that have their heads on right have mentored black children, but problems facing blacks is far more problem some then what mentoring can counter react.

One, is counteract. Two, Big Brothers/Big Sisters is all about mentoring and has wide support. It's interesting that you criticize, by extension, what they do.

Darkstar "With black men being the problem, what are they going to mentor kids about Darkstar?

You never asked did you Darkstar? I mentor young black men on how to start up businesses. I am apart of the solution and I still won't turn my head and whistle trying to ignore the problem Darkstar.

Darktar "Since you live in Baltimore and are a Black man, I guess you are part of the problem?"

Hardly Darkstar, I'm 36 years old and never been arrested or even shot at gun for that matter. I have purpose and direction in my life. I'll be the first to admit that. As I stated earlier. ignoring the problems in the black community is not dealing with them. What is your solution to the problem Darstar? Is it for all blacks to stick their collective heads in the sand and pretend what is going on isn't? I really want o know.

Darkstar "Is Israel Cason part of the problem? How about the Black men involved with The Algebra Project?"

If you think for one second I believe all black men are the problem, you really don't know me. I never said that. For me to include all black men as the problem, then I would have to include myself naturally. That isn't the case. I admire Ben Carson a lot.I wrote a story about him back in November when he performed the brain surgery to remove half of a little girl's brain. I said that Dr. Carson should be held up as a role model among blacks not Gangsta Rappers. Can you find fault with that Darkstar?

Darkstar "You're talking about the "local" NAACP, why hasn't the NATIONAL NAACP spoke out on this Darkstar?

So the National NAACP can be bothered with this, but they can be bothered when it comes to writing reports on "CLIMATE CHANGE"? What am I missing here Darkstar? I love mentoring. Those that want to do for themselves, I'm always there to teach. Mentoring by itself is going to counteract a cultural self destructive path of blacks in America Darkstar. You can ignore it all you like. I see it every day in Baltimore. Mentoring does help,b ut it isnt' an overall cure. It would be like trying to bail out the titanic from sinking with a sand pail.

You do realize that I mentioned Israel Cason, who does mentor, right? Or the people who mentor the students in The Algebra Project, right?

Shall I quote it?

Hardly Darkstar, I'm 36 years old and never been arrested or even shot at gun for that matter.

But, you called all Black men in Baltimore the reason for the problem. Oh, wait. Was that hyperbole on your part?

What is your solution to the problem Darstar? Is it for all blacks to stick their collective heads in the sand and pretend what is going on isn't? I really want o know.

Son, I mentored students when I was living in the D.C. 'burbs. I've tutored friends' kids. And I try hard to keep my daughter on the right track and am doing the same for my son.

You are the one who belittled mentoring Tyrone in your comment. Remember this comment?

That comments makes no sense. Please re-write it.

But here's something I found doing a quick search of their website.

Mentoring does help,b ut it isnt' an overall cure.

You really don't have a clue as to all that mentoring embraces, do you?

Tutoring comes under the umbrella of mentoring.

Bible study comes under the umbrella of mentoring.

Parenting is mentoring.

Darkstar, when black men stop becoming sperm donors and start being mentors re:educational donors, then they can rise. Jesse Jackason had a baby by an educated woman who knew exactly what she was doing and so did he. The fact that 75% of our children aRE WITHOUT FATHERS and mothers make it a very hard road to tough.
Rap music runs wild calling women bitches and hoes, when without the men women could not be bitches. Rap is owned by Muslims who have no respect for black women, especially non-Muslim ones. When black men left the church they left all common sense. We have more crime and disrescpect than ever. At least the church did tell them no stealing, fornication, adultery, lying, etc.
Without this teaching, they have nothing to teach black children. Women need love and if our boys have no men to teaxch or show them how to respect black women, they dont know how to show respect. Then they do as other men do, marry other women or join a religion that says black women are a sign of a bad disease(Islam) hadith 9:162,163. When our children feel that daddy does not love them they go wild and feel it is right to bame everyone else.
Obama blamed other whites who paid they way for him to be President. Cant he see that without the white side he would not be here. He would just be Osama the African Arab with a white mother. Obama is Osama in Swahili, an east African mixture of Bantu and Arabic.

Black men wake up at least the ones who are sperm donors and will not even hold the hand of the children they made. They could at least tell the children they love them. At least go by and take them for a walk around the park and say son, I LOVE YOU, even if they have no money. Muslims men marry 4 women in the mosque and put them on welfare. One man had 48 children in Oakland and received 10,000 a month and the women got nothing. In the UK Paki men marry 1st cousins and bring them to Europe and put them on welfare.

DarkStar,

My simple understanding of what the Conservative Brother is trying to say to you is that if we are to be honest with ourselves and truthful with others about the black-on-black crisis in our communities we must do so with the same or greater zeal than we do for these lesser matters.

CB gave the example of how Sharpton, Jackson and various regional activists throughout the country direct their human resources and selective outrage to the statistically insignificant low hanging fruit of white on black violence, while merely issuing a tepidly worded press statement and holding stop the violence concerts to address the statistically-heartbreaking culturally-embarrassing scourge of black on black violence.

With the utmost respect to the Conservative Brother:

I don't however agree with partisan marginalization of any kind. If we are to foment revolution within our community on this subject, it must be from a position of clarion reason, civil dialogue, humble concern and it must be in the absence of the shackles of tradition partisan thinking.

Thank you for encouraging this dialogue CB.

Signed,

Ruthless Pragmatist
