I wanted to share some information. I wanted to be ‘low profile’ with it too. I wanted to simply throw something out there that was interesting to me. Share something I found on the social media page for Bison Round-Up, Howard University. A place where I frequent to associate with great minds!

Here is what I emailed to a few people who put up with my infiltration of ‘Truths’.

Gang Tours, Entrepreneurship at its BEST?

The cyber conversation that proceeded was another opportunity for intelligent people to vent, share statistics, and tell The Truth.

The Truth is what you will find on this blog. No fluffy bullshit!

You tricked me, B. When you said gang tours, I thought we were headed to the gated mansions and private islands and yachts where the real gangstas live. ;-)

Reader Response:

It's really frustrating that many associate gangsters, thugs, crooks, etc.............with an image of a black male. This article mentioned none of that but America has successfully planted that image in the head of many through"NEWS". Many black people, have bought into this slave mentality. I have seen and heard it time again. Malcom X was right when he coined the term TRICKNOLOGY. MLK was right when he stated that "it pains most people to think". No doubt black men have contributed to crime. White men actually created, dictated, and controlled ALL the crime in these states yet they continue to get "passes" and the benifit of the doubt. Brian and I were on to something in college when we went for weeks being literally suspicious of every white person we encountered as a form of reverse Psychology!

Muata responds:

Was listening to John Eaves, Fulton County Chairman, today on the radio discuss a program he is sponsoring (Revitalization Forum: Addressing the Plight of African American Men). He quoted: 30,000 men came through the Fulton County jail system last year, 89 percent of the men were black. Yes, blacks commit crime - but the white judicial system has thrown away black men while creating a supportive environment for whites. With this disparated it is obvious the system is set-up to shyt on black men.

Reader Response to Muata:

Guarantee you that a large percentage of those crimes boiled down to choices made regarding lack of finances and resources. Two major strongholds that white america control and have since pre and post slavery. A small percentage of black men slip through those slim cracks. The rest were trained and guided to be in the penal system. If the tables were turned, black men wouldn't be as greedy and controlling and crime wouldn't be the issue, suicide would.

Muata responds again:

A black man called in and said, "These men need to be locked-up. Throw away the key." Another man asked, "Why do black people buy into/support the methods of the system that was created to unjustly/uncaringly incarcerate black men? We are our worst enemy at times - especially when we support the demise of us!!
