WHY!?!(PLEASE READ THIS!!!!)
I was reading an article and i happened across these gut wrenching facts…it left me tears but most of all it left me in prayer.
CHICAGO MURDERS SINCE JAN 1 2008- 1685
-ASIAN 3 (0.25%)
-WHITE/HISPANIC 390 (35%)
-BLACK 1,218 (73.3%)
The ages of 15-35 account for well over 50% of these (mainly gun related 1,373 to be exact) murders.
I pose this question to anyone who can answer it with an intelligible response, Why? Why are our black men gunning each other down? Drugs? Money? Gangs? WHY? It is sad when the highest GPA that can be found in some hoods is a 2.0, or that many of our inner city youth dont see past the age of 30…that is very scary. What can money but you when you are laid out in a church? What can a gang do for you while your mother wilts to the floor at your casket? What does respect do for you when you are not here to bask in it? How did we find ourselves in a place where murder is the top story every night, or children playing in the streets die just doing what they love.
Where are the parents? Why are you out all night instead of rasing your kids, or chasing a man while your kids are in the streets. Parents arent what they used to be. Im appalled by the way some people allow their children to talk to them and behave in private more less in public. Where have the days gone when mamma told you to shut up you wondered if you could ever talk again, or the days when enventhough granny had never hit you you found yourself fearing her wrath? What happened to the days when men were men and frustration was taken out like gentlemen in a hand to hand fight…it takes a man to step to another man to fight…any bitch can pull a trigger and run away.
Black people we need to do better. Stop listening to these fake rappers who rhyme about a life of crime they never lived. Go to school and open your mind so that you can AFFORD the money cars and clothes, since you want to be so successful. Parents wave goodbye to the streets and hello to real life because the truth of the matter is…our black youth are dying…and we are killing them. Sound off below…i want to hear from you. I want to hear your stories, and i still what to know…WHY?
