AFRICANGLOBE – Every single time an African American says something about George Zimmerman, Donald Sterling or someone else who has committed some act perceived to be hurtful or harmful to African Americans wicked people usually have the same reactions.
People with devilish intentions are bound to ask, “What about Black on Black crime?”
Personally, I’m sick and tired of the pot calling the kettle Black, so to speak!
OK, I study history and I know people of African descent have fought and killed each other over the years. There has been ethnic warfare throughout the continent of Africa and today there are still some Tutsis that don’t like Hutus, for example.
But all races and creeds have fought and killed each other. Members of the same biological families have oftentimes fought and killed each other.
So, bringing up ”Black on Black” crime to dissuade African Americans for speaking out about mistreatment, wrongful treatment or criminal acts against Blacks by non-Blacks is a stupid and ridiculous argument!
My research indicates only one race of people used atomic weapons against another race of people. Only one race uses drones and similar weapons mostly against another race of people. And only one race tries to economically hurt or harm other races of people with calls for unnecessary and undesirable trade sanctions.
Now, let’s talk about White on White crimes. The American Revolution was a White on White “crime”, the Spanish-American War was a White on White crime, the Civil War featured White on White crimes, Irish-Catholic uprisings in Ireland are White on White crimes and even the Biblical Crusades could be described by some as White on White crimes!
People that love to see people hated, harmed, exploited, oppressed and victimized as a group love to blame the victims of crimes, the victims of discrimination and the victims of racism by suggesting the victims do bad things to themselves and should take most of the responsibility for their own situations.
If crime is a joint and several liability matter, yes, you could say that African Americans have contributed and continue to contribute to their current status in the United States.
However, you should also admit that many of the bad things Black people do were things they learned to do by watching slave traders, slave masters and low-life overseers!
The use of guns, whips and hangings to get people to behave the way you want them to, the history of making babies and selling them, killing them or not taking care of them and the idea that taking the life of a Black person is not the same as taking the life of a non-Black person are things that were taught to Blacks in slavery days!
It is easy for some people to tell African Americans to “get over” slavery, Jim Crow, and modern day comments and acts by satanic beasts but its hard for the same people to tell Jews to get over the Holocaust, hard to tell Native Americans to get over genocide attempts and hard to tell Cuban Amercans to get over Communist Cuba.
You don’t have to tell me about Black on Black crime. I see all kinds of crimes every day by all kinds of people!
