The Political Agitator response: Every time black folks do something bad or good they have got to associate them with something negative to attempt to justify why the black person is somewhat not human but must be an animal like. Why is it that we as black folks past actions are held against us forever no matter how much we may have changed but other folks past actions, they have been forgiven. Why is it that when a black person does something negative that all black folks are held accountable for that person or group actions? I don’t support criminal activity be it done by black, brown, white and other. I have a problem with black on black crime and anything negative in the black community but if you let other folks tell it, they act as if I don’t care and other black leaders don’t care. Not so! We talk about it all and I have been doing so since the late 80’s along with others. So for those of you who have a problem with individuals and/ or groups in the black community who are being called out such as Rev. Andre Knight, Reuben Blackwell, myself and the NAACP to name a few, obviously you don’t know us on a personal note nor do you know the mission of the NAACP. We do not condone the actions of Ismaaiyl Brinsley and others who have made some bad choices.
Two New York City police officers were shot dead “execution style” in Brooklyn on Saturday. Not much is known about the gunman, who was identified by officials as Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, except that he was a suspected gang member from Baltimore who allegedly posted on social media that he wanted revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, two black men that died at the hands of police.
According to the New York Daily News, Brinsley, who was pronounced dead, had ties to the ‘”Black Guerilla Family” prison gang, which is also known as “Black Family” or the “Black Vanguard.” The gang was formed in 1966 by Black Panther member George Jackson at the San Quentin State Prison in California, and soon grew into a multi-million dollar business with chapters stretching from Los Angeles to Kansas City and Detroit.
