Our Voices: Truly! Does Black Lives Really Matter?

By Thomas Muhammad

Old school folk like me are always playing Monday morning quarterback. We continuously go digging in the weeds seeking the correct answers! But, hell, somebody’s got to ask the obvious questions, right?

And the answer seems to always be the same. It appears Black Lives only matter when a Black life is taken by a white cop!

Don’t get me wrong I’m proud that you youngsters are out the- re on the front lines raising the issues, however I’m very concerned when many innocent Black people are constantly being killed by young Black thugs who believe in shooting any and everything anywhere and it’s innocent Black folk who are always the losers.

I do not pretend to be a Divine man, but I do believe in Divine guidance, Divine Power, and in the fulfillment of Divine prophecy. I am not educated, nor am I an expert in any particular field… but I am sincere and my sincerity is my credential.”Malcolm X 1964

Take that grandmother whose 11-year-old was shot as he lay asleep in bed…shot as the the house was gun sprayed because some Black teenagers targeted the wrong house!

Then there was this 28-year-old rapper, Mo. Three shot and killed by two kids 28 and 22 who were arrested for the shooting!

On I-35 in front of the Dallas Zoo in broad daylight!

Recently, there was a rapper,

Young Dolph, a 36-year-old killed in Memphis, TN.

Local news reports people fleeing the scene at his funeral because gun shots were being fired!

Again, this happened in the light of day! I mean there’s no Damn respect, nor shame, in these thugs! Someone please tell me the answer! I’d love to hear from you!

Until Then. The Struggle Continues…
