Sharpton targets black-on-black crime
    #8479106 - 06/03/08 01:20 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Quote:


The Rev. Al Sharpton is calling for a high-profile community summit to address black-on-black violence after Harlem was rocked by a wave of shootings over Memorial Day.

"Last year alone, nearly one black child a day under the age of 17 was shot and killed in New York City. Shot mostly by other black city residents," Sharpton said.

He said three critical areas need to be addressed: improving partnerships between the police and the community, "better dialogue between all of us with our youth" and new jobs.

Rev. Al Sharpton: Let's talk about violence in black neighborhoods





Why wasn't this an issue in the presidential campaign, in which many promises of change, racial reconciliation, etc. were made?

It would require either white people to intervene in black people's affairs, and arrest more young black men, which black people as a demographic despise (with good reason), or for black people to admit a large problem publically at a time when they feel under assault from others for reasons of race.

In the meantime, the deaths -- mostly of children -- continue.

It's time to admit pluralism doesn't work, and we need to set up local communities on the basis of heritage, culture, values, and language -- and possibly variants of those, where not all are in line. Pluralism isn't working. Throughout history, we have no examples of it working. Just how dumb do we have to be to keep trying?

Black leaders take aim at black-on-black violence

I have to agree: big governments don't work.

And also: liberal good intentions don't work.

And further: conservative "ignore problems and make money" doesn't work.

We need local communities where we can live with people we choose. There are too many morons in this world, and also, too many competing ideologies. We each need a homespace where people understand us, and for most of us, that means rule by traditional societies, where people are united by culture, language, heritage and values, and as a result, the social functions of government, religion, philosophy and social organizations are united as well.

All sharpton wants is for someone to give him money! The only chance our Country has, is if everyone becomes an American. One language, one government, united under one constitution. We are a melting pot, where everyone melts into the same pot. If we did it your way our Country would be in shambles in twenty years! Liberals keep making promises that they never intend to keep. Are schools, or crime, or racial relations any better in Mass. after forty years of kennedy. Liberals abuse the unemployed, the uneducated, and they get nothing in return! The liberal politician gets it all; up on a pedestal blindly supported by thousands of people who expect something for nothing. When klinton/gore ran for President they sat in front of an MTV crowd and promised them that they would legalize pot. Of course that was a lie! As a matter of fact we lost more of our rights during Klinton/gore, than under any other President! Iam not trying to change your affiliations, but it would be more honest if you judged everyone with the same scale.

Rudy Giuliani probably saved the lives of more black people than anyone in recent history. Ray Nagin probably caused more grief for more black people than anyone in recent history. And yet, NYC police are under assault for profiling and Ray Nagin still plunders New Orleans. Stupid stupid humans,

"It is time for equality in violence. We should be killing those damnable white kids, not our own beautiful black children. They hate us and it is past time that we start to hate them back! Hate is the only answer. That and violence! Hate and violence! Sing it with me..."

You are right. White republicans ended slavery, White republicans pushed for equal rights in the sixties. The problems in New Orleans were caused by liberal policies, and liberal politicians.
