Black folk in Pittsburgh have again shown me that they have not a clue as to what time it is politically,we have allowed the news media in this town to define how we should responed to the savage beating of one of our children by three Pittsburgh cops.As some of you may know I have a part time job in a stop and go kind of store and get to interact with a lot different people.O f the many black folk I get a chance to talk with not one has express any concern or angry about this beat down of this 18 year old high school honor student.Yea I know we have gotten use to cops coming into our community knocking heads and getting away with it.But folks when is this shit going to stop?When are we as a community,going to demand that the police protect and serve us with justice and not a ass whipping? When are we going to get involved in the policing of our community? When are we going to elect leaders for City Council who truley represent our needs and issues? The City Councilman representing this area(HOMEWOOD) calls himself a man of the cloth! In my opinion he has not the balls of a lion,but of a pussy cat! The reason this lowlife bastard can get away with not being forceful about this beat down by these three thug cops is because most of the black community is asleep at the wheel of political and social reality of Pittsburgh,Pa.Black folks maybe in postions you would consider powerful postions,but the reality is they are puppets,like Police Chief Nate Harper,another person without balls. It's Friday and black folks in this town will fill all the bars and clubs wall to wall tonight getting their grove on and someone's kid will be getting their ass beat or hassled tonight by Pittsburgh's thugs in blue! And these same thuggish bastards walk in the store where I work and wonder why I look at them with hate!
