Ferguson: Let’s not stop here

Question: Who told this society that the life of a young black man was worthless? Did WE do it by ignoring black on black crime? Did WE do it by the continued support and proliferation of values perpetrated by Gangster Rap, misogynistic and violent lyrics in the music and artist WE promote? Did WE do it by the DEAFENING silence from our own communities, churches, and black public officials when OUR communities are under siege by our own youth? When are WE going to value our young black children? Must we ALWAYS wait for a white man to kill a black youth before we are outraged by a life violently and needlessly cut short?
Yeah, let’s blame (clearly) out of control racist police departments for ALL the violence in our communities. That’ll show that we care about the violence on young black men. Right.
