8 dead among 52 shot across Chicago over weekend
It is time to advocate for the National Guard to be deployed on Chicago Streets. The influx of drugs in the black community since the 1970’s and the War on Drugs has created a civil war in black working class communities. The war is between those who embrace the individualistic, material uniquely American trait of “imma get mine” no matter what the cost to the community and those who are simply want to live a safe, economically stable life. What would happen if black women who have lost their children to violence and addiction to protest like Chile’s mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, who protested the brutal practices of Chilean dictator, Augusto Pinochet every day from between 1976 and 1983. If this bloodshed continues native born black Americans will go to way of our Native American brothers and sisters.
