Hillary Clinton sat down with Black Lives Matter Activists to discuss the policies of Criminal Justice in the African-American community on Friday. I have to confess that I really do not understand what the movement is all about.
When I first heard of them, they said they wanted to let people know on how police departments treat minorities in the low-income communities. Then I saw them interrupting Bernie Sanders in one of his rallies, and by the way with two very disrespectful girls hijacking the microphone. On another occasion I saw the group marching down a street chanting “PIG’S IN A BLANKET FRY THEM LIKE BACON” speaking about police officers.
I think that any group that wants to fight for Justice and Equality in the low-income communities should start at the root of the problem. I think its great that this movement is getting national attention but I feel they are going about it in all the wrong ways.
In the last month there have been at least two shootings, with one of them being a black male shot in the head. In another incident a black male got his face sliced by another black male in my neighbor hood in the South Bronx. I have not seen or heard anyone from the Black Lives Matter movement come to protest any of this violence.
If Black Lives matter so much, why are they not in our neck of the woods? We have great people in our community who keep their noses clean, work hard, and do what they need to do to maintain their homes. Yes we also have the entitled people or what I like to call “the give me people”. Not all of us are looking for a hand out. We are just looking for peace of mind where we feel safe and secure.
My life matters as much as anyone else’s. As a male Hispanic from the South Bronx my life is just as valuable as the person standing next to me. The person might be white, black, yellow or green. Bullets do not discriminate what color you are. No child should die for riding their bike. When bullets fly and there’s no place to hide, the soul of a child is lost in the sky. A hard-working man walks towards the train, to have a bullet enter his brain. These are the realities of our world in the South Bronx. I have not seen or heard from the Black Lives Matter movement but I do know my life really matters.
We must first start at the root of the problem. We need to start by admitting and realizing that we have a huge black on black crime problem in our communities. Before we go to the deep end of America to protest police brutality let us protect our children from dying on our streets. Let us unite and be organized.
