Excerpt from book.....A TIME to CRY, A TIME to LOVE and A TIME for TOGETHERNESS

by Raymond Sturgis

   

When Is It Right to Murder Black People?

  

      There is a dilemma in the black family and communities that is impeding economic stability, peace and love. The nation is in an uproar over the murder of teenager Trayvon Martin by a white man, who has finally been arrested forty-five after the crime. You have some white people-screaming foul of the national television coverage, and black concerned people should refocus their lives on important issues. I agree and disagree. I live in a city where the murder rate is astronomical among black men, and the climate I see across America, is all races of people believe that it is right to murder black people. However, the outrage over the murder of Trayvon Martin is different; see, if a black person would have murdered him, that person would have been arrested, offered a plea deal, because in Florida they would have already had him guilty before any discovery of the evidence. The outcry over Trayvon Martin is for justice and fairness, and that is why demonstrations across America are warranted.

          In contrast, black people killing black people are always troubling, and black America should be ashamed of themselves by continuing to let the legacy of the past be diminished by gun-violence and poor parenting. Young black men have in their minds today, that it is right to kill another young black male in disagreements. The high schools in America are fraught with black students that incite violence to recruit for their gangs. Martin Luther King Jr. says, “…Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere…” If black America wants justice in the Trayvon Martin case, the parents and leaders of the community must first hold court for the violent disruptions that exist in their family and community. For if it was their son, or daughter, tears will not bring back their child, therefore, obstructing the path of youths poisoning the community with their violent behavior, must be weeded out and reformed to civility. No longer should black America carry bloodstain banners that say it is right to kill black people. If we are to transform our future into one of accomplishments and success, we must be as tough on black people as we are on white people that kill our people. Violence is wrong no matter who commits it, and helping troubled families raised their children is imperative to saving our future.

          Therefore, non-violence is not the only element that must be administered in preserving black life, restoring positive identities for the hopeless that lost their way is paramount to sustaining any reoccurrence of violence. In closing, black leaders today are standing tall for the survival of black America, the problem is black people in rural areas have yet to acknowledge the urgency of transforming their lives and community. If the countless murders, drug addicts and incarceration of our youth have not awaken black America, then black America timeline is on course of other great nations, with self-destruction as its only destination.
