Nick, thank you for the rebuttal. This article by a man that is supposed to represent our communities is disheartening, ignorant and completely dismissive of what actually needs change. I will not waste my comment on the black-on-black crime deflection as I have heard this too many times and it is NOT helpful. This is not a representative of the people, he is a representative of the conservative politicians. Racial and social justice is not a political issue, it never should be. This is a human rights issue that should not be ignored by a single resident. He needs to go, resign. He is not good for our community. We are among people of color in our communities that need help, that need our support, that must fight for their children in school and against racist bullies. We have people of color who deserve more and now is the time to fight for this change.


Do not ever apologize for publishing the truth! Black on black crime is a fact, much more than “police brutality”; Julian Garrett pointed this out. Black Lives Matter should concentrate on helping people in the inner cities suffering from the gangs and crime, but that doesn’t appear to be what they care about.


Right on!
