Justice is long overdue and it hasn’t stopped demonstrators from seeking it, not just for Michael Brown but for Trayvon Martin, Eric Gardner, Sean Bell, John Crawford, Tamir Rice and the list goes on. Demonstrators are blocking parades, lying down in the streets, standing in traffic on highways, laying down on sidewalks and disrupting shoppers shopping at malls.
But for some critics this rage and outcry for justice is misplaced. The anger and outrage is un-necessarily exaggerated. And according to former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who—after President Obama spoke on Ferguson—told CNN that “[Obama] should have also spent 15 minutes on training the [black] community to stop killing each other.” —“Where is all the outrage over black-on-black crime?” Why is the question always raised whenever black Americans protest a police shooting, or any other violence against unarmed black men?
Join me tonight at 6:30 PM on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via Blog Talk radio as I address how “Black on black crime is relevant to police brutality and civil unrest”, with my special guest Dr. Kenneth Osborn, an expert on behavioral health and corrections for more than twenty (20) years and author of the book, “When Mama was daddy”.
All “Conversation links” in this post make it possible to access tonight’s show.
See you on the air.
