“I wrote this a while ago and it still applies today to a degree. If not “as much” in the U.S. it is, at least, more so across the world in the land of clannish fighting such as in Sudan at Darfur, in Africa, where some tribes eradicate each other for whatever reason.
Perhaps it is due to many reasons that the killings occur.
In the U.S. it could be poverty, unemployment, social injustices, or other such things, that causes the discord enough for one race to go against itself. I am not smart enough and doubt if others can really pinpoint the exact reason for this killing of selves”
I hear the “today” phrase in the U.S.,, “Black Lives Matter” and could not agree more, but in actuality, “All Lives Matter” is a better refrain………… I apologize to those of color that this may offend, but it is what I believe…….
An eradication of an ebony race,
so many times, by the race itself.
What pride in life or in blackness is there,
when — there exists a killing action with lame excuses.
The “colors” and “turf” and/or no reason at all
perhaps a tribal instinct of needs and beliefs.
Is the reason poverty and ignorance or genetics
or maybe the mindset of customs not understood.
A “drive by” shooting for no reason at all,
Leaving death behind as a reminder of being.
Also, giving grief to the mother of the child killed,
A remembrance to keep in the heart forever.
The creation of death, the dark side of horror,
of man against man, affecting all genders and ages.
Do hormonal, “triggers” create the beast, or is it just
the lack of conscience without a care of consequence.
Aggressive acts of violence, an obsession to some,
to many times, a rage without reason, towards selves.
Beating disease, famine, and pestilence, the grim-reaper
reigns supreme for a race self-claimed as a proud one.
Where for, is the pride in the blackicide?
I have tried to find the word “Blackacide” somewhere on the Internet, but only found one reference, by a black lady named Stella Foster, on her blog “Stella in the City” at WordPress.. I do know that the term would be proper for the killings that occur on a regular basis by those of the same race, that happen to be black. When a white kills another white it is NOT called “Whiteacide” but instead the term homicide is used by the legal people for ALL killings of another human, including blacks against blacks
