It is within my human rights to avoid capture, arrest or be brutalized and killed by police.

Sacrificial Lamb

A friend in Nigeria was surprised that African Americans are not out in the streets rioting and causing all kinds of havoc and mayhem in the aftermath of the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict. I told him the thought never crossed my mind as I witnessed the growth of the African American community in one generation
Sitting in a Starbucks writing this article I just so happen to be listening in on a conversation between two caucasian gentlemen about the Trayvon Martin case and another surprise at how the verdict did not result in a race riot. “I mean where are the riots” one asked the other to which he answered ” They have just been peaceful protests” he went on to correct his friend that Al Sharpton did not call for riots in the streets as his friend had implied.
I have also been offered the opinion that Chicago averages over 21 gun murders monthly and that there is some kind of political gain for President Barack Obama because Al Sharpton is not out in the streets of Chicago everyday protesting the murder rate. Seems to me this gentleman is trying to pick what battles Al Sharpton should fight.
The killing of young African Americans is not a new dimension in their playbook. The practice is as old as the slave trade. In the last 2 decades there have been one too many Trayvon Martin, Christopher Wallace and Tupac Shakur.
You ask why the bounty on the blood of young African Americans? Simple, the last form of control they have is the gun. Religion, drugs, prison, police, disease, colonization all failed. So to keep guns you need to have gun laws validated with the blood of the one you fear. The keepers of these laws is the NRA. You make laws against those you feel threatened by and you kill those you fear.
Back to why I did not expect violence from the African American community. It is in the African tradition not to fight violence with violence The Rodney King Beat down by LAPD already proved to the world that African Americans are not the aggressors but victims of this system.
The African American community grew stronger and wiser from the Rodney King experience by raising a generation of thinkers totally contradicting the image projected of the young violent black man. Yet they continue to inflict unjust violence on them.

Damn I guess Tr…

Damn I guess Trayvon Martin murdered himself with George Zimmerman’s handgun. It is time the United Nations list the NRA a terrorist organization. The National Rifle Association are responsible for more American mass murders than all anti American terrorist organizations out there combined. What is the price of a young black American? His blood.

The NRA @ Work

Black Presidents

Black South Africans broke loose of white supreme rule just over 20 years ago. The living symbol of South Africa’s freedom Nelson Mandela struggles for his life in Pretoria Hospital.  It is obvious that black South African’s are still reeling from the effects of apartheid and the lessons of those dark times still haunt today.

It took over 230 years for America to elect a black person president, am talking about Barack Obama from Kenya. In my lifetime I have witnessed the first black American president and the first black South African president. That said it is in bad taste for protestors who believe Barack Obama is not doing enough to curb the problem of bad leadership and corruption in many African nations to use Pretoria hospital as the venue to pull Obama’s coat.

We Africans understand that bad leadership and corruption has plagued the leadership of the African continent for many decades after colonial rule. The historic occasion of Barack Obama spending maybe last private moments with Nelson Mandela should not be tainted by these protests. This is not the African way. It is a disrespect to the honor and legacy of Nelson Mandela, the people of South Africa, Africans, African Americans and President Barack Obama. – @OgbeniAyotunde
