Chu'chWhen ever you put oppressed and poverty stricken people together (in slums) and make them fight over crumbs this is what you get. People of color have to redirect their actions towards the system that created the circumstances that they all have to live with. I remember when Black and Latino gangs co-existed and only interacted on a social level. On my block as a kid we stayed out of each others business, but socialized due to living on the same streets. Naturally the powers that be couldnt handle that, so they began pitting them against each other in the jail system. Take a look at the way housing is arranged in the prison/jail system. How is it that all these gangs have been conveniently housed together? Is anyone aware that most of the violence between Blacks and Latinos is sanctioned by the gang leadership in the prison system? Leadership that has multiple year sentences if not life. Seems to me that maybe we should be looking at the myth of rehabilitation, isnt that what correctional facilities are for? California prisons seem to be strictly for housing, and that helps how? Not at all. As long as we keep misdirecting the source of the madness, the madness will continue. And to White folks that think this is just a dark peoples problem, wait till one of your kids get caught in the crossfire. As you may or may not know, what ever people of color do, young white folks follow close behind. Putting themselves in the cross hairs just to be cool. So you can wait and criticize if you like, but who do you think buys the most gangster rap? Not people of color, we just burn it from a friend .1 Luv Big Al
