About a week ago a woman named Peggy Hubbard posted a video on social media speaking on the black lives matter issue. In this video she talks about the death of young girl who was shot in her home after a drive by.
Hubbard was angered when she noticed that this girl did not receive support from any “black lives matter” activist. She states in her video, “Black lives only matter when a white person is taking that life”
Who is to blame for the death of so many black people?
In most news stories you hear the classic African American being killed by a fellow African American for: drugs, a woman, personal possessions, gang rivalry, etc. On the other hand police brutality has been increasing drastically.
When doing the math, people of color have been terrorizing each other since the beginning of time; compared to a police officer who is doing what they have to do to prevent harm that may come to others.
Since the time of slavery, African Americans have been categorized by complexion, hair, or facial features. This system of divide and conquer has turned African Americans against each other.
White men did divide African Americans so that they couldn’t instill them to hate each other. On the other hand African Americans are the ones who have been doing the majority of killings.
The blame falls on African American people who have been hurting other African American for inexcusable reasons.
