  • where is the outrage over this? Over the past 5 days since the protest started there has been atleast 4 homicides of AA in dc but not one even notices because they are too busy laying in the street over something that happened across the country. Does that make sense?

    • Because society as a whole has decided that black on black violence is a tolerable status quo. We only get upset when a white person attacks a black, or sometimes when a black attacks a white. However, rampant black on black violence is an issue where we just turn our heads, and quietly mutter, “Man, it’s pretty bad- someone should do something,” as we sip our coffee and take another bite of our croissant. As long as it doesn’t come to our neighborhood, it is something to be tolerated and largely ignored.
