A MESSAGE FROM A BLACK MAN, A U.S. MILITARY VETERAN, A SON OF A U.S. MILITARY VETERAN, A BROTHER TO ANOTHER U.S. MILITARY VETERAN, ON OUR DUTY TO OUR PEOPLE

Oh - so it’s perfectly fine, Black man,for us to use guns for white folks, but when it’s time to use guns against them, FOR SELF-DEFENSE, guns are suddenly against our religion?

We can shoot each other over bruised egos, over which street we live on, over a fucking card game… but not some worthless two-bit murderous cracker, in order to SEND A MESSAGE to the other devils awaiting their turn to prey upon our innocent children for fun and bragging rights among their ilk, that the cost of a Black life is a white life?

It’s time we stopped making excuses for our cowardice, brothers, blaming guns themselves, blaming gun laws, etc., for our murders, when it is crystal clear that we are being murdered by RACIST WHITE MEN, not by laws.

WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO, BROTHERS?

This is one time that we can’t hide behind the skirts or beliefs of our women, letting them dictate how we should respond, AS BLACK MEN AND FATHERS AND SUPPOSED PROTECTORS of our families. 

All our women are going to advise us is to pray to Jesus for justice. And y’all know in your heart of hearts that, even if we do believe in Jesus like that… that is STILL NO EXCUSE for us to neglect our duty to protect, or AT LEAST AVENGE, our offspring.

Praying might be a down payment on an action… but it doesn’t count as actually doing something, in the real physical world. If we are too damned cowardly, brothers, to protect our children, then maybe we shouldn’t birth any. Word.

How many times, Black man, are you going to sit up in a court room, crying over your murdered son, as this racist court system once again, for the umpteenth time in u.s. historyreaffirms the worthlessness of black life in the face of white hatred or supposed fear?

These crackers will keep doing this because THEY THINK WE’RE TOO COWARDLY TO ADMINISTER RIGHTEOUS JUSTICE IN RETURN. And so far, we have been. What - are we that afraid of jail, brothers? Really?

Not so long ago, we were willing to go to jail just to be allowed to eat lunch next to white folks, but now we’re so jail-scared that we’ll let them murder our kids and go sit through a trial, fingers crossed, hoping to ‘get lucky?’

Not so long ago we were willing to go to jail to be allowed the “privilege” of taking a shit in a stall next to a white man, but we aren’t men enough to go to jail to make the point that OUR CHILDREN’S LIVES ARE JUST AS VALUABLE AS SOME RANDOM CRACKER’S LIFE???

When are we gonna stand the fuck up??? Until we do…

It’s open-season on young Black boys in America.
