Anger over black-on-black crime reached a boiling point after the senseless murder of beloved West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle on Sunday. One loyal Sandrarose.com reader is fed up with rappers like T.I. (pictured right with Nipsey) who only protest when Black males are shot by white police officers.

Loyal reader Denise writes:

Good Morning Sandra, I have a message for TI.  In the wake of Nipsey Hussels [sic] murder and countless other people who have died at the hands of other black men, where is his voice on these matters? People of different ethnicities harm and kill each other every day, however this is far too common in the black community.  Young black men are senselessly killing each other.

I live in a nice city near Nashville and these black boys are constantly doing shit.  Robbing, stealing cars, killing folks, its rediculous [sic].  Im getting to the point where I hate them. I often see T.I., DL Hugley, Black Lives Matter speaking up for matters that involve police brutality and racism.

T.I. has time to shut down restaurants and initiate violence against a white man who beat a black woman, but where are they on matters where we as a people have to be accountable.  Black folks only want to blame but NEVER take accountability.

Just like the Say No to Drugs campaign, these celebrities particularly rappers should start a movement to try and end violence and gang activity.  But that's admitting that there's a problem and we don't do that, right?

Where you at T.I.?  Holding on to his bag I guess.  Lol ugh.

    There is definitely a BIG problem with black on black crime it's bad enough we are being slaughtered by the police, and racism, but to be out here disrespecting and killing one another is disgraceful and shameful where is our black pride?

  • Mister Fantastic

    Same reason why Black Lives Matter don't: Because speaking out on Black on Black violence, Pookie and "nem" will beat T.I.P and whoever's arse over stopping their money flow.

    A Big conglomerate, company, or hipster white dude would be less unlikely to "come back" at T.I.P and yelp dogs like him. Clout chasing 101.

  • Topic Influencer

    Tip spoke to youth for over 1,000 hours about the pitfalls of guns, gangs and drugs as part of his arrest/parole. HE chose that platform and His legal team pitched it to judge and it was agreed on.

    Do your homework man.

    Can we just raise up by uplifting one another . Stop with looking to start something. Nipsey believed in positive energy. Let's be mindful that his family hasn't had time to process ,mourn, or bury! Sandra this is a time 4 us to come together,unite in Love. Let's be supportive through example, like Nipsey! Rest in Power!????

    This broad has never experienced anything controversial. One thing a black person with self hatred never has the right to do is speak on another black person white people have been murdering everything that moves since they've stolen everything under everyone's noses. T. I is a dumbass and that black girls opinion ain't never gonna matter. If you live in nashvi6 start with blaming the kkk for everything they've done since they've started being scared of all other races. If you hate what your looking at then move

  • girlyardie

    I say it all the fycking time, guns, drugs, and black men should not be in The same sentence, now you add trap fycking music to mix and you got a perfect storm.. ti cant say shyt becuz he is a part of creating the fycking problem 4 financial gains.. I don't give a fyck what nobody says ain't no way strip clubs pill popping , drugs, trap music and cheating on your family helping the community .FOH

  • MsJC

    That's why BLM is BS! They only care if another race kills a black person. In reality most black people, die at the hands of another black person. So it appears black lives need to matter, to black people as well. In order for their message to be receptive to others!

    Y’all need to be careful speaking on Nip. This hurt a lot of ppl. All of LA is hurt. I’m not sure if one person slept well last night. Cause I know I did not.

    I really don’t believe that anyone, wanted him dead. Every gang no matter what set it was, loved Nip.

    I truley believe this was above gangs and they just want us to believe that’s what took place.

    Nipsey was loved... and if you were from California at all, you would understand this mess hurts.

    Nipsey was the modern day MLK, to us in Cali. And it’s really disturbing when ppl from other states commenting about this situation when they don’t understand what he meant to the entire LA.

    All Black people need to be aware of the NIGGAH because they are an enemy of BLACK PEOPLE.

  • AndSo

    " ...as part of his arrest/parole"

    Xactly.

    Can we find someone who HAS NOT been convicted of a crime to preach to our young people about staying away from crime? How about a successful, educated businessperson?

  • Kimberly King

    Denise needs to learn how to spell before talking sh*t. Black people like her are a threat to our community. You hate the black kids who are wrecking the Nashville community, but why the f*ck are you calling on TI? Girl what are YOU doing to help the youth do better in Nashville ? Not a damn thing ! Just hiding in Metro Nashville like a loser and being mad from afar. I was a teacher for YEARS in Memphis and Houston. Never taught at a white school, because I wanted to help kids who looked like me. I taught in schools that most teachers would stay far from. I’m from the hood and I went back to educate and uplift the kids. This tramp is a disgrace. Stop waiting on celebs to step up and do so yourself.

  • Coffee1st

    Why would anyone create a platform out of a person's death to air their own personal grievances about people/ situations that are totally unrelated.
    This infidel never even took the time in her self righteous rant to RIP Nipsey or offer condolences to the family. And her wording gave it away..."INITIATE violence against a white man who beat a black woman"????? Initiate?????? She DON'T CARE about black people at all except given the opportunity to bash, criticize or point the finger. It's called deflection and self hate.
    I'm sorry this man lost his life. Condolences to the family.
    It's NEVER okay, under any circumstances, to take a life.

    This whole narrative that it has to be either or always comes off as coon like behavior imo. Who said you have to do this or that just to have an opinion or take action about things that are important to you. What do you propose TI to do. Give gangbangers a good talking too? Who are we as the black race going to boycott? There is no course of action except pleading witht eh youth to do better, which MANY rappers have done before.

  • T Willis

    I could see this if the two body guards damn near died while protecting Nipsey, but that’s not what happened. When emotion runs that deep and your boy *knows* his enemies are near/close, his body guards or boys, would have reacted with much more aggression and passion. I just don’t believe he was as beloved as folks are claiming. It’s a tragic loss but the way he was killed and how easily the killer was able to gun him down, despite the two body guards, it happened too easily. Beloved men don’t die that easily.

  • Coffee1st

    Dang. I'm so sorry.
    I don't know much about this man at all. But if he's loved the way you say he is....this was some other level stuff.

I think this Nipsey gentleman has been down the wrong path before but as he grew older he realize he needed to go into a different direction for his family but apparently the enemies became so jealous unfortunately they ended his journey because he made it to the other side which was the legal successful side....R.I.P.

    Triggered? When one of your kings meets one of those wildings, one is not coming home.

  • Zeta Aggie

    When a black persons kills another black person, the perp is usually caught and goes to jail.

    When an officer or other non-black person guns down a black person, unnecessarily, while white people avoid arrests for much lesser crimes, or are taken in alive for mass murders while black people are somehow perceived as threats over traffic stops, the cops do not get charged and do not serve time.

    This is why we say black lives matter. If you are black and don’t understand this you never will and are part of the problem. If Tyrone shoots Andre he’s going to jail. If Chauncey shoots Tyrone he’s getting exonerated.

  • Cricket404

    Created by Blacks for Blacks

  • T Willis

    This is a huge misconception about the BLM movement. The police are *suppose* to protect all lives, but *they* (the cops) don’t value black lives. The difference here is, as tax payers, we pay cops to protect and enforce the laws, instead these cops (that black taxpayers are employing) are unfairly targeting black lives and killing them, hence why black activists are saying to law enforcement BLACK LIVES MATTER & should be protected on the same scale as ALL OTHER LIVES. Black on black crime is completely SEPARATE conversation because most m*rders are committed by proximity - and America is still very much segregated, which means that a yt person is over 50x more likely to be killed by another yt person.

  • 11pink123

    This young man was building up a city that all politicians neglected, he was giving ppl jobs who would never qualify for a job anywhere else, he gave that whole community hope to move past the gang life they only knew about.

    You have not 1 clue what you are talking about, I own a business and my business took a loss yesterday because of this. But it’s okay, cause I understand.

    Please understand that he was bigger than gangs and bigger than rap. He was an activist, businessman and politician without the official title.

    Every business on Crenshaw and Slauson in that area had no choice but to close down. Ppl were packed for a least a Mille on each street from every direction. So how you from LA and don’t know that?

  • Zeta Aggie

    As do most other races. Please stop saying Blk on Blk crime it’s such an ignorant statement!

  • T Willis

    BLM is about telling cops (the very ppl your tax dollars employ) to stop killing black bodies! All crime is committed by proximity - if you live in a predominately black area then your likelihood of being assaulted or killed by a black person is over 50% more likely than another race. The same goes for yt, Asians, Hispanics etc -

  • Renee26

    Denise honey research poverty in general and you may have a better understanding of why the crime statistics are higher in poverty stricken and low income areas... Look at history and see how the system has led to the most impoverished areas being majority populated by minorities.

    Same this happens in other countries... The impoverished areas are the most dangerous... Look up the result of oppression.

    Maybe black people don't want to recognize this as a BLACK issue cause it really isn't. Look at the big picture. The black folks who are living trife are a very small percentage of US. Most of US don't live lives of crimes.

    When celebs like TI and Nippsey go back to the hood and give back to the community it shows they ARE trying to help the community.

  • Coffee1st

    How can you judge a thing when you don't even understand it.
    Rhetorical. Please don't answer.

  • iWasteTime

    Dear Denise,

    I'd like you to do some research. Use your Google.
    The term "black on black crime" is an old media tool to fuel social anxieties. Not only is there Black on Black crime, there is White on White, Latino on Latino, Muslim on Muslim etc etc.
    Black on Black crimes aren't the highest numbers of the above mentioned.
    In general you're more likely to be killed by someone who looks like you and a lot of it depends on your environment.

    The next time you're this passionate about something, get involved.
    Writing a letter to Sandra Rose won't bring anyone back nor stop the violence. Volunteer in your community, if that makes you uncomfortable go to another and talk to these kids about the senselessness. Talk to single mothers, go to the schools etc

    Bless up!

    There’s no such thing as black on black crime. There is just crime. They are pushing this narrative to again make black people seem like savages. Koreans kill Koreans, whites kill whites ( and I mean mass shoot and colonize nations) and more. Stop pushing this false narrative. Demographic is key and this blog should not promote such nonsense.

  • T Willis

    I wish people like you would actually investigate why the BLM movement was created. It was created because black people were being unfairly targeted by the police department - when their sole job is to serve and protect these communities - not play target practice with brown and black bodies - which is what is and continues to happen everyday in our communities. When black ppl try to discredit BLM movement, you’re discrediting Mike Brown and host of other black/brown bodies that weren’t given the same benefit of the doubt of their non-black counterparts. The movement was meant to protect us from cops that don’t value our lives. Stop trying to conflate black on black crime with the BLM movement. The two are entirely separate. And to be honest, black on black crime isn’t even real. It’s like saying yt on yt crime, or Asian on Asian crime - it makes no sense because ALL crimes are committed based on proximity. If you live amongst Asians then you are 50x more likely to be assaulted by another Asian. The same goes for other ethnicities as well. I get the emotion and passion that y’all feel when we hear about these crimes in our community, however, we have to learn to be less reactionary and vocal, and try to work inward to resolve.

  • Bossy704

    Black men dying at the hands of law enforcement is a completely different scenario than what happened to Nipsey. Where are the white's protesting white on white crime? Whites kill way more people.

  • T Willis

    We have too many children being born who aren’t being raised or provided with parental guidance. As a result, they are open prey to the siren of the streets. If you want to see more black children with values, morals, and ambition then it starts with the individuals who are breeding them into your community. You want upstanding citizens? Then do a better job at raising them - or better yet, don’t have them at all. Contraceptives exist for a reason, use them.

  • Renee26

    People irk my nerves talkin about blk on blk crime and using it as an excuse to deter people from protesting injustices.

    When my business took off, he was the reason I decided not to take off with it. My first thought was to move and never look back, but he showed how you’re supposed to love and uplift your community, not walk away from it.

  • T Willis

    No, we are being slaughtered and unfairly targeted by police. Look at the statistics of black kids who are shot 6x while handcuffed by cops. Or look at all the m*rders that have happened because the cop feared for their life. Cops do not value our lives. Period.

  • Branch Davidian

    A. I think the better term to use is "street crime" because we all know there are Black, Latino, Asian, and White versions of "the streets".
    B. It is more incumbent on ALL OF US to mobilize to stop the violence in the Black community because Blacks as a whole are marginalized (racism, generational wealth, police issues) etc.
    C. Black on Black crime, if you want to call it that, is doubly troubling seeing as Black Men have enough issues in society in general. When they are shooting and killing their own, it adds exponentially to an already dire situation.
    D. Accountability and Honesty is important to ALL OF US. If you want Whites to admit their culpability in what has/is happening in the Black Community, Blacks need to stop with the idiotic conspiracy theories about Dr. Sebi and Big Pharma. That is a smokescreen and not based in reality in any way, shape, or form.

    It it time for people to get honest with themselves and each other. This circle of blame and deflection helps NOBODY. "Tha Streetz" killed a great, promising young Black Role Model. Nothing else. We have to figure out a way to change the culture unless we want the circle of stupidity to keep spinning round and round....

    His body guards were also shot. And it’s more than body guards there. His whole family and hood is there. All day, everyday 24x7. He owns the Fat Burger behind the marathon clothing company and just about everything near, including homes. All his ppl work at those stores and live right there. Who ever did it, had to have it planned and it had to be planned above any gangs knowledge to pulled off right there.

    Like they had to even know he was there, first if all.

    In L.A. Created by Black youth 1st as a response to white aggression and oppression. All else was secondary and a human response to living in THIS society with it's social experiments. I worked with gangs here while they were extremely active. Thanks to us folk and demographic changes it is not where it was. I'm older. My fam's been here since 1901.

    It DIDN'T then and it won't now.

    Turns out that's not the case. But if you want to lessen the damage, don't fight with cops when you're asked to comply. In the end, the number of people shot by cops is infinitesimal compared to the number of people shot by black thugs. If you were really concerned you would focus on the big problem.

    I used to have a friend who was very well educated- she and a Masters in Business and BA in Accounting but she had an F in life and low self-esteem and her toxic family members were causing her to have adverse physical reactions to the related stress but she preferred to hang onto drama than to be physically whole.

    Not at all. I disagree (vehemently) with your take on the situation. I am asking what point are you trying to make by reciting that fact? "Black-on-Black crime" isn't a thing given that people most often victimize or are victimized by people of their same race.

    What about "white-on-white crime"? We can't care about white school children being shot and killed by peers until someone does something about white-on-white crime!?! /sarc See how ridiculous that sounds?

    Speaking out against blacks killing other blacks is a touchy subject on social media. Sometimes It get other black ppl very angry. TI takes the safe route and is the attack dog against other races. I see life and reality for what it is, black ppl kill other black as a norm in my city. I do live in a majority black city also! Nothing is going to change until we all start looking at blacks killing other blacks like we look at whites killing us. That is my take on it.

  • T Willis

    The shooting happened yesterday and both men are in stable condition? That doesn’t add up to me. If one of my girls hired me to protect her and I knew that she was worried about a “powerful” enemy, let me tell you, I would have used every fiber in my body to put at least 50 shots in that mfer! The fact that dude got away in enough time (without injury!) for folks to identify him as a black male with a female driver, tells me that not enough folks around him acted in haste or aggression. That’s why it’s hard for me to believe that he was so beloved. Sometimes folks are just fake in their admiration for you because of what you can do for them. RIP

  • Tbone

    Let us stop blaming people for our short comings . We as black women have to embrace our black men , we have to take them back to the womb , we have to nurture them we have to stroke them we have to love them for who they are and stop trying to take everything that they have gained that's why they run away from the black woman into the arms of another cultured woman.Black women it is up to us. I'm Just saying. Now is the time for the black woman to stand out to be the protector of our black men . Society Has caused this split So The divide Between the have and the have nots Has caused us to Prey upon one another. If we aren't killing ourselves the police are killing us. All of these action could be avoided if we come together as a people a culture of concern for everyone our children other children our schools our neighborhoods our prayer institutions. Let's take back what our ancestors gave us we have been sleep too long stay woke the revolution is being televised.

  • Coffee1st

    Whites have been killing Black people since our ancestors were in chains.
    Us not valuing our lives is not the reason they enslaved, beat, raped, murdered; therefore, it won't stop them from doing it. They never stopped, they just found more clever way to do it.
    I encourage improvement in our communities. BUT STOP TYING BOBC AS TO WHY THEY KILL US.
    STOP IT!!!!
    We should do better by each other. But don't use our internal issues as some kind of rationalization for them killing our people.
    It's ignorant and it's a dangerous ideology.

    This woman complaining about TIP and BLM should offer a solution on how to address violence among each other. Its easier to complain and point fingers, It makes one feel good.There's no easy solutions and factors causing violence are myriad, generational poverty, drug abuse, child negligence, abusive relationship, dysfunctional families, illiteracy and on and on. People say for example fund public schools and build rec centers, millions dollar rec centers can be build and every school can have high tech computers but believe me nothing will change because there's more to be addressed. All one can do is to start with his or her family offer discipline and love and God will take care of rest.

  • YellowSauce

    I don't think this was gang related ... I believe someone was paid to kill this young man ... now whether a gang member was paid to make it look gang related remains to be seen ... and on another note .... something DOES need to be done a bout gangs but that comes from the household .... children join gangs because they want to belong to a family ... because something is missing at home ... maybe their fathers? ...maybe something else but they join for brotherhood and protection... the feeling of security usually found in stable households .....

  • T Willis

    I agree. The first step that black women need to take is accountability. The next step is the illegitimacy rates. Black women need to be educated on their bodies, planned parenting, and the benefits of financial literacy. Once we correct the dysfunctional nature of black women, we can correct the behaviors of the males that they are breeding. I say this constantly, women are the facilitators of every community. That’s why the U.S. government works so hard to educate women in the Middle East, they understand that by controlling the women, they inadvertently control the males in those regions. Black people are the only group that thinks that change starts with the males. It does not. That’s why our communities are struggling.

    I don’t remember hearing about daily killings of Black men at the hands of other Black men during our grandparents and great grandparents era. Robberies, yes. Burglaries, yes. Running numbers and illegal juke joints, yes. Shooting another Black man because he “disrespected” you by looking at you funny or wearing the wrong color in a certain neighborhood, no.

  • Tbone

    On point

  • 11pink123

    No. You don’t know what you’re talking about. Clearly they were aiming for him. Bodyguards cannot stop bullets. And bullets fly faster than you can think, especially if you don’t see it coming.

    Nobody in LA would expect for someone to be bold enough to shot him right there, so I wouldn’t say he was nervous. All his family and friends live right there. He was too comfortable more than anything, as he should be because nobody over there hated him.

    Everyone knew his life was on the line when he signed to a label a few months ago, which is why he was always relunctant to sign over the last 10-15 years.

    They thought Nip was going to come in and keep the gang culture going but he flipped it on them and start helping black ppl become successful. They did not like what he was using his money for.

  • TransMichelle

    See, I've been telling people here that there are other black folks who feel the same way I do, but I get called "cracka" because I'm not on the plantation. I say it now and I'll say it again "black folks are in a VERY bad situation." People here go on about white folks "well white folks do this and white folks do that." But believe it or not, white folks are not that into black folks as you see by the made up racist attacks being made by black folks regularly.And yes, more white folks are killed by the cops than black people! Black neighborhoods are hellholes, yet when black folks make a bit of money they want to move to where? Drum roll please.."white neighborhoods and send their children to white schools." And where do all the Africans risking their lives want to come to? You guessed it..White countries. "As black people we need to get our own sh*t together and stop running behind white folks."

    We have a whole dam continent and still can't do a dam thing. The white liberals and Demoncraps have black folks on speed dial trained like dogs. They say jump and black folks jump yet, we have nothing after all this time. AND STOP BLAMING IT ON WHITE FOLKS...Black folks are hypnotized (pushed by white liberals) by a victim mentality. "Black folks are last because that's where we believe we belong."

  • MrsSpice1

    Look!!! Like it or not the white system has programmed many blacks against ourselves annd each other!! Thats why their killing off us behind the scenes and on the scene all too easilu because many of us are still SLEEP! Wake up!!! Ever since we were stolen and shipped here against our will and not only just that, we were robbed of our true identity and taught to hate ourselves and once that was acchieved we proceed in hating each other!!!! Check!!! They know our true worth and POWER!! But many of us DO NOT AND SOME NEVER WILL!! many black communities that deal with high crime rate are because its all easy to rob someone thats near rather far or the person that looks like you ...and if u hate urself your not going to show that person any mercy!! Drugs were dropped off in black communities and still are once they pulled back many jobs and factories that was crucial to many black middle class neighborhoods esp in the 80s and 90s...once “they” created crack A cheaper bs version of the white Man politics and high profield white men candy heroin and place it in the black neighborhoods many successful black ppl once upon a time that lost their jobs amongst and became strssed and sought After easy coping magnesium’s..esp those that were poor and illiterate! not only just that they wanted us to be influenced by the pimps and drug dealers not honorable black
    Ppl within our neighborhoods that was once also shared with whites!! Thats why they took out the black panthers and other organize black associations for empowerment AND JUSTICE of young men that were trying to bring awareness to our community and race! While
    Also giving back!! Believe it or not but even the crips and bloods at onr fine point were protecting their hoods and ppl from crooked white cops trying to set up black ppl to pit them against each other!! They systematically seek out gangsters esp petty drug dealers to
    Committ hits against they own kind because they know we would easily think it was our own ppl!!! Dont be fkn fooled!! Theres wayyy more to it then blacks Alone killing each other! It was already pre planned centuries ago for it to be this way so they don’t have to do it or take the blame!

  • Coffee1st

    Exactly. "Black on Black crime" was not a thing. We valued ourselves and each other.
    But did that stop the killings, lynchings and oppression?
    My point is, stop blaming their transgressions against us ON us. There is plenty of room for dialogue in regards to the issues that plague our community ie BOBC. But when we're talking racist killings of our ppl, BOBC should not even be mentioned because it's irrelevant to the discussion.

    When I understand that the perpetual killing of my people DID NOT ORIGINATE with how we viewed ourselves, then I know there's another answer out there. To do otherwise would mean I'm spinning my wheels holding on to worthless ideology.
    Understanding the past helps you navigate to the future with less risk of repeating the same mistakes and ignorant state of mind.
    Where did you get living in the past or self pity out of my comment??? I simply gave you a documented example of why this "they will value us when we value ourselves" is wrong. And you took that very clear idea I expressed and made it into something it wasn't.... INTENTIONALLY.

  • TransMichelle

    OK, I understand what you are trying to say but I'm not holding any punches on this one. Black folks f*cked up with INTEGRATION! Sorry, but MLK did us no favors. Before integration black folks had black Wall Street. Hundreds of successful businesses owned only by black people with people both black and white as customers. We had everything imaginable our own grocery stores, night clubs, drug stores, banks, churches, funeral homes, restaurants, hotels, and more. The community was completely self-sufficient and became the home of many black multimillionaire entrepreneurs. Many of the businesses were more successful than those in white communities. We were strong, virile, had integrity and was a force to be reckoned with in the “right way.” We succeeded out of love and the willingness to help each other.

    These clowns now like T.I., Snoop Dog, Lebron James, Oprah, etc. can’t compare to black people prior to integration. Now check this out..Jim Crow laws were still “alive and well” during the time of Black Wall Street yet, black folks thrived! WE HAD TO..! Now look, we can’t even tie our own shoes. Black people have proven that WE CAN AND ARE CAPABLE of prosperity when forced to. But now, we’re not forced to and “the powers that be” know that. Welfare and all the other handouts gave us a pass to poverty, violence, and victim mindedness. We’ve been so brainwashed and adapt to every filthy ideology put in front of us. I don’t know if there is any help. I really don't.

  • http://batman-news.com MzTee

    First let's stop with the black-on-black crime label. It presents a disgusting narrative and pathology for blacks we are the only race folks who kill each other. You damn sure don't hear the media trotting out white-on-white crime when white folks kill one another. It's about proximity. Folks kill folks who are near them and within their community.

    RIP Nipsey Hussle. Because of his murder, I began reading up on the young man and he appeared to be a very intelligent, conscientious, entrepreneurial, and community minded person. Nipsey seems to have left an amazing impact on others, so his time on this terrestial plane was well lived.

  • Coffee1st

    Women are key. But for us, it goes way past education, although it is necessary. Accountability, like you said. We hold ourselves accountable then pass that chit on to our men folk - husbands, sons, fathers, cousins, baby daddy, etc. The only ones who should be let in is those who PROVE they are willing to lead, provide and protect with integrity and dignity. Till then : No. You can't crash at my place. No. You aint getting the cookie. No. I'm not bailing you out of jail. No. You can't get a ride or hold my car.
    Cheating, beating, unemployment, refusing to grow up is a deal breaker. Who we thank housing, supporting and giving these fools the loving they KNOW they can't do without.

    Don't necessarily make it true....?
    Something about dr. Sebi... Is gaining legs on YouTube.... Something about Nipsey trying to uncover what he believed to be the truth about dr.

    T.I. always speak on crimes that involve Blacks period he just don't PICK and choose what subject to speak about, just because he didn't RESPOND yet does not mean he don't feel like WOW, this needs to STOP Black on Black crime, and what your doing by coming act T.I. is not setting a BETTER example about us going at one another, STOP JUDGING and NOT stirring up DRAMA, its called STICKING TOGETHER and we ALL TRY AND HELP ARE BLACK COMMUNITY from VIOLENT NOT POINT FINGERS, ALL OF IT NEEDS TO STOP, and START NOW STICKING TOGETHER

    They tell what you won't see on the daily news channels. Love the ID channel.

    Exactly, only an idiot would sit around, constantly talking about police brutality when we have more pressing issues. That's like complaining about a bad paint job when your transmission is slipping. I wish these black "entertainers" would stick to entertaining, rather than speaking on issues they clearly don't understand.

    So sick of the violence especially in places like Chicago. How many more black women will mourn their child? It makes no sense for this unimaginable pain to rain down on black women. And I hate to say it but it’s true- it’s by and large black males offing our children. I am beyond frustrated.

  • Rossdaboss

    Yeah buddy HF deep af here

  • Wayup!

    So many factors...?.. there's this YouTube video of this youngin. . FaceTime saying he killed Nipsey.... Now this article saying the getaway car was located on video.. Looks to be the same color the car young boi driving...?.... Conspiracy theory or not ..I don't put nothing past NOBODY or ANYTHING....
    started researching dtr.Sebi found that he was"murdered" while in police custody....?
    My thing is just like slavery... How many blacks knowing the truth about these"meds"actually stop taking them? Knowing the side effects??
    For woke individuals like ourselves.... It's a drop in the bucket.... for knowledge..

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Dang, you hate Mexicans and Guatemalans? Hate is a strong emotion to feel towards an entire group of people. Your comment stuck out to me because I'm Mexican so reading that told me you hate me and feel that way without even knowing me. I'm not upset, just confused.

    dr sebi was a witch doctor. there are indeed healing herbs, however, he conjured up evil spirits along with those herbs. watch left eye's documentary running around naked and painting that same "illuminati" mess all over her walls. she was out of her mind care of dr sebi. all of these hollyweird folks are on drugs and satanists. dont believe anything they say or follow any of their practices.
