http://http://www.theroot.com/buzz/detroit-honor-student-killed-five-doors-home This makes me wonder wtf are people in the city doing with their kids. I bet the shooters have pathetic parents who said at some point , "well them boys gonna do what they wanna do and there is nothing I can do to stop them". That is plain sorry. I think parents should be held accountable for the actions of their kids, thats if it was teens who did this. Every hooligan has parents and this has to stop. Another bright black youth headed somewhere gunned down for nobody knows what.

Chuck:

First of all, is this really new or news to us here, poster?

Next question:

Why all of a sudden is Detroit becoming the poster child for all that aills Black America?

It wasn't and it isn't!

Save Our Son And Daughters tried to do more than get the word out about black youth on youth violence etc. in Detroit...

As I also heard and read:

So did Black Chicago residents via STOP THE MADNESS (organization)...

Instead do consider what folk are and aren't able or willing to even discuss via other posters on this board!

The ones trying to make a difference I applaud...

The ones who just make a lot of noise/not a lot of sense?

I'm just starting to not post back to at all!

Awhile back Ankhur berated and chided me for not seeming or sounding like I had any real empathy and sympathy for what our folk are going thru?

Instead some things I was urged to forgive (though I can and will not just forget)!

Anybody here--activist or otherwise--know me better-- than that!

So I ask him and others upfront:

Why no sense of urgency about anything and everything you claim and say you're concerned and worried about as well?

That's as revealing as what you do write and talk about!

Chuck:

But what is truly the nature of 'the home' ala 2010?

Maybe it isn't the idealized one...

Not the Huxtables...

And the one like in CLAUDINE...

Nothing new or news about that--in my neck of the woods--either!

We are doing the best we can--via our limited and limiting educational backgrounds etc.:

Though we are trying...

And why are all of those black haves not trying at all?

So much for their commitments to the ideas etc. they associate with M. L. K., Jr., oh so grateful for what the Civil Rights Movement ushered in for them, oh so distant as regards doing anything for us have nots, left behind?

And I am asking for a hand UP not a handOUT...

No wonder some black youth do opt out for a life hustling in the streets, when they're presented those sort of 'role models', too...

My point:

A conventional middle class oriented take inspires nobody who isn't already one...

Some things we may well have to do I'm guessing will be on the unconvetional side to confront and deal with our peoples unresolved internal issues and problems...

On the other hand:

We hardly did all of this to ourselves...

More on that subject as time etc. permits too...

Lastly:

Please do pass along my condolences to the family and friends of yet another victim of senseless violence...

It was and is probably on the envy side...

I know and understand what motivates some of our youth at risk too well, at this point and time, my man...

stuff happens,

but more stuff will continue to happen in cities that are flat broke or are on the verge of going bankrupt.

And it will go on and on and on until we take the time to start looking at broad based acrposs state line solutions.

As rotten fruit drops from a tree and hits a baby on the head, we need to look at the roots of that tree and find out why it is rotten and if we cannot move babies away from the dopping rotten fruit, then doggone it we need to get together and start building someshelter for them as protection

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
