    Uncle of seven year old Natalia Wallace who was shot in the forehead and killed yesterday in Chicago:

    Natalia’s death is leaving an impression on the Austin community. Members of #1 Stop the Violence came out to support the family, marching down Latrobe and calling for peace.

    “If Black lives don’t matter to us, how the hell is it supposed to matter to anybody else? That’s what I want to know,” said Natalia's uncle, Ervin Perry.

    That is why BLM is misnamed. The number of dead blacks they truly seem to care about is quite small. If they cared about all black lives, they would be calling for an increase in cops and an increase in punishment for violent crimes.

    Exactly, and it’s a shame that if the people protesting with BLM really cared, they would do something to show it.

    More of the same......

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/fourth-o...ork-city-baltimore-memphis-philadelphia-crime

    A seven year old shot and killed.......

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/07/06/atlanta-shooting-secoriea-turner/

    An eight year old shot and killed....

    As the Mayor of Atlanta says in the second article.....you can't blame this on the police..,.but she still misses the bigger issue.....Black violence and murder is on them.....they need to stop blaming others and deal with this if they are ever going to be taken seriously....

    Police brutality.....really?

    I don't want to go there....we have an opportunity, as we did when Obama was elected. Black America is, to me, like people with substance abuse. Until they agree that they have to address their problem, there isn't a lot that can be done to help them. But both sides, black and non-black, will have to work together to break the cycle. And no, burning down small businesses and their own inner city isn't going to help.

    The concern expressed in this thread for the lives of “the blacks” - particularly “the blacks” who reside in Chicago - is very touching. Really life affirming. And here I thought these white nationalists only cared for black people while they were in utero. :cool:

    Here are her exact words. She seems to get it. Maybe one day other people will:

    She continued: "You shot and killed a baby. And there wasn’t just one shooter; there were at least two shooters. An 8-year-old baby. If you want people to take us seriously, and you don't want us to lose this movement, then we can't lose each other."

    "It has to stop," Bottoms added, according to FOX 5 Atlanta. "You can't blame this on police officers. It's about people who shot a baby in a car. We're doing each other more harm than any officer on this force."

    MLK had similar thoughts to Ervin Perry.

    “Do you know that Negroes are 10 percent of the population of St. Louis and are responsible for 58% of its crimes? We’ve got to face that. And we’ve got to do something about our moral standards,” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. told a congregation in 1961. “We know that there are many things wrong in the white world, but there are many things wrong in the black world, too. We can’t keep on blaming the white man. There are things we must do for ourselves.”

    I'm not sure how to interpret your post. You don't want to go where?

    After that confusing start, your posts didn't say anything that I don't agree with. It's two separate issues.....how BLM is using a relatively small problem to incite hatred while ignoring a much larger problem because they aren't really interested in what their name says as a general matter is one thing. Talking about how to fix the problem is something else altogether..

    Yeah, "we" (the nation) have an opportunity if "we" (everyone in the nation includes the Black community) all admit to what the real problems are and what "we" must do to fix them. . So long as "we" is only white people pointing out the real problem , "we" (all Americans) are stuck with this problem.

    I have to respectfully disagree with you. The Mayor doesn't really "get it". The Mayor, in another part of that statement, talked about these recent murders working against "the movement" (or words to that effect). She , of course, reacted to this killing of a child with emotion and concern, but she needs to use this instance as a tool to understand there are more issues than those being raised by BLM to be addressed here. I didn't see that.

    She still sees the larger problem as being white or systemic racism and has made a number of anti-police statements. since the anti-police hysteria began.....including the way her own cops handled the Wendy's situation. It's time for all leaders, regardless of gender, race or political party to have the courage to address what's going on and bring this country under the rule of law once again.

    If that was your issue, OK, I can see how you may think that the use of that term is an unnecessarily pejorative.

    But, what terms do you think BLM leaders and their sympathizers use to describe white people? I believe they are blaming all white people when they use terms like "white privilege" and "systemic racism", so using a mildly pejorative term like "whitey" to shorten the references to their targets doesn't seem like a big deal.....but, everyone is entitled to their own levels of sensitivity, I guess.

    So, let me get this right. You find it surprising those people here that you have tagged as "white nationalists" care about "the blacks" who reside in Chicago? I guess that's because you have concluded they are all heartless RACISTS? No far fetched generalization there....

    Well, that's pretty funny, since it is "socialists/libtards" who SAY they care about these poor plantation folk's plight (many times while shedding tears) , but they never seem to be able to do anything about it, even though Illinois is a Dem bastion and South Chicago has been under Dem control since the early 60s. But the hypocrites here are the board conservatives?.

    Got it..

    Lib irony, gotta love it

    "Folks'." You used the plural possessive.

    And yes, they are hypocrites, because they don't really give a tinker's damn how many blacks get shot in Chicago. They just love bringing it up as a "whatabout" response to legit accusations of police brutality. Funny that people who feel inclined to defend every instance of police abuse of minorities might be called "white nationalists."

    We’ve had opportunities as far back as 1968...yet the mobs burned baltimore, Detroit,Ferguson,Seattle, Minneapolis and on and on. They haven’t agreed yet to address their problems. Black and non black work together? We’ve taken steps to revert to segregation...this time at the behest of the black community. Black only buildings on campus, black only students/professors allowed, Ms black America, black music awards, etc. black lives matter (not all lives)
    Everyone should be treated equally....when a group of white supremacists sets up a protest zone, bet they’re treated differently than the blm chop. A lot of people are getting upset with the apparent double standard

    What a jumbled mess of an answer....HA....but, at least you owned up to being a lib-bot who totes the party line mindlessly....thanks for that....

    I did notice that you didn't get around to making up excuses for the local Dem elected officials who are allowing (promoting?) the very conditions in the inner cities you suburban elitist libs like to cry about....I wonder why.

    BTW, in my prior post, I was using "plantation folk" in the vernacular of the poor folk in Chicago ya'll be keepin' down . ....you are flustered aren't you? Now you are correcting imaginary mistakes.....great job, UNHINGED.

    You have chosen to live in a city that is 85% white and has less than 1% Black people. Oakland or Chicago or Baltimore beckons. Actions speak louder than words. Live consistently with your beliefs and move.

    they are going to have to manage the news and still to their core values. When a black person breaks the law they need to NOT support him/her just like they wouldn't if the person were any other race. we MUST have equal application of the law. I am the first to say, traditionally, that hasn't been the case for people of color and/or poor people.

    It’s a Marxist organization. It’s founders are admittedly Marxist. Black people are the proletariat and white people are the bourgeoisie. They are anti private ownership and have strong totalitarian leanings. A lot of their stated goals will actually harm black communities. Right now, they have the Democratic Party by the balls.

    Unhinged = concluding that someone of a certain ideology did something when you have no idea who actually did it ... in order to defend his Fuhrer. Poor unhinged m.knox.

    They care about black deaths it just happens so often in some these neighborhoods they loose faith in the system bringing the murderers to justice.

    I get what everyone keeps saying of how the Dems politicize Floyds murder but not others. But that does not mean the people of the community don't care.

    Sorry, Gorki, but there is NO way you will convince people that BLM really cares about black people. They want to get rid of all police in 5 years and close all prisons. That will lead to MANY more dead black people. Thousands upon thousands.
