Barack Obama

President Barack Obama appears to be in denial over the unprecedented spike in violent crimes during his two terms as president. In an op-ed published in the Harvard Law Review, Obama refused to take credit for a 10.8 percent increase in murders from 2014 to 2015 — the largest increase in a single year since 1971.

New details are emerging in the tragic case of Jonylah Watkins, the 6-month-old baby who was shot while her gang banging dad supposedly changed her diaper. The infant’s wounded father, Jonathan Watkins, a street gang member who has been arrested 39 times, was released from the hospital yesterday.

Watkins stood before television cameras, portraying himself to be a distraught father who just lost his baby daughter.

But, according to loyal reader Trendsetter, who sent in the above photo, Watkins didn’t appear distraught while in the hospital, where he was seen posing for photos and throwing up the peace sign (his hospital wristband is visible on his right wrist).

Hidaya Pendleton died just blocks from the high school she attended. The teenager was an honor student, a well-liked volleyball player, and majorette.

Witnesses tell CBS 2’s Mike Parker that Pendleton was among a group of 10 to 12 teenagers seeking shelter from the rain under a canopy in a park on the 4500 block of South Oakenwald Avenue around 2:30 p.m., when a gunman jumped a fence, and opened fire on the teens.

These are not my words, but I can relate. I found this post on AOL Black Voices Entertainment board. You may not agree with the message because your sons wear their pants saggin’ and they immerse themselves in that criminal culture called Hip Hop. Or they idolize these thug rappers, who but for the grace of God would be behind bars or dead themselves.

But the reality is that the innocence of youth has been rudely snatched away by the violent and destructive imagery of Hip Hop despite what music mogul Russell Simmons and others who benefit from Hip Hop say.

The death of Derrion Albert..more fruit from the tree of thug worship.

Jay Z, a professed former crack dealer was on Oprah last week. Snoop Dogg is a cultural icon. Tupac is an iconic figure. Need I mention, 50 Cent, the Game, and the whole plethora of drug dealers, rapists, burglars, and other felons that black America worships.

Young black boys want to be them…
Old black men want to reclaim their youth by sagging by them…
Young black women, educated and non educated, want to F them and have babies by them..
Older black women consider them to be “real men”

Thug worship.

Until black America quits worshipping thugs, this violence will not end.
