CVL inc of rthe 60s and 21st century V.O.T.E were legitimate efforts by VLs and GDs to really initiate a positive change in our communities.I see some of us have joined the powers that be in demonizing these groups.Funny how some of us show respect to the same nation that enslaved us,yet we will act as if organizations of black youth can ''do no good'' or ''once negative can never go positive''.
Anytime you have masses of unemployment,there will be drug dealing,and the powers that be know this.Its not the organizations that are the problem,its the lack of jobs in our community.You cant have 50,60,70% of black males jobless and expect any kind of peace.
Again I don't make a habit of responding to thread by banned people but there is someone out there that may have these same sentiments and I must squash this nonsense. My first question is how can a group with the word "Vice" or "Gangster" in it's name be expected to taking seriously when it comes to positive change in the community? If they are it's about time. How many brothers and sisters lost their live for nothing and how lives were ruined because of the activities of these groups. The carnage goes all the way back to the 60's..That's over 40 years of self destruction and mind warping and they are suppose to get a pass and all is forgiven? These were not the Black Panthers, the Deacons for Defense or the Nation of Islam. These groups were quite the opposite. They have a long way to go to make up for the damage they have caused. This is pure nonsense. Kill the names, form a new youth organization and never forget the past... Then maybe...
