Four Black Teens Charged in Hate Crime
If you haven’t heard about it already, find the story here

The actions performed by these teens here is wrong. Dead wrong. End of story.
It took me some time on this one
I had to really gather and organize my thoughts on this one to give my two cents
Hate Crime? Hmmmm…I don’t 100% agree
Crime? Sure
Immature? Very
Stupid? Extremely
Hurtful to all of those involved – including the family of the tortured boy – for sure
Ok, so y’all understand my viewpoint on the entirety of it all? The bigger picture? Ok good.

What’s making my shit itch about the media (not new though)
Is that
Folks are blaming this on the Black Lives Matter Movement (I linked the website, so if you aren’t informed…educate yourself…you’re welcome)
Now c’mon Amerikkka
Anyone with common sense can see that this is in NO way linked to a movement that is dedicated to bringing justice and equality to those that the system was built to and forever will (sadly) oppress
Even if it came straight from those kid’s mouths…it’s just not true
If you think this is the case, you are sadly mistaken and poorly educated
No arguments

This is the problem with the privileged
They love to throw pity parties and invite all of us at home willing to tune in and watch
and oh man, are we watching
What is that teaching our society? To blame the black folks when justice was already served? Because…sending them to jail (where they belong at this point) wasn’t enough?
Y’all understand that we GET that this crime was full of ugly spirit and stupidity ? Right? Y’all do know that we aren’t supporting those kids on this? Right?….RIGHT!?

As if we don’t get enough of y’alls daily whippings

There will be some who make the obvious comparison about how, if this were flipped, people would be far from up in arms and try to pull records and drug tests and “reasons” (pssch) as to why it’s not a hate crime let alone a crime period
But I digress…
We cannot continue to create false realities of what is or isn’t when it benefits us as a people or race
Not sure why we still have to preach that to society

So to the family of that child
I’m sorry
That he had to endure that senseless act of evil
To those teens that are now feeling the repercussions
Next time
Do better
God..please..just do better
