Let us explore the role of criminality and its’ growth in the Black community the past 50 years by thinking Black, not Black and White. Of course, I am suggesting a seemingly impossible cognitive shift in the minds of Black liberals lacking conservative thinking as a social balance that it is, in a racist society where White people hold the upper hand in all institutions in the society but let us try it.
See the thing about the criminal mind is that it operates outside of human socially established laws and established social norms of what is consider being a positive citizen contributing positive conduct to the positive health of a society. What was once known as, or labeled “Out Laws,” is today politically correct termed Criminals? One thing about criminality in the world is it comes in the mind of all races and ethnicity. However, in a White person dominate racist society, such is America, criminal thinking has been socially subjugated to the Black American group exclusively, yet criminal data reveals otherwise that criminality in the society is spread proportionately across all racial groups in the society.
I grew up in a time where a criminal was a criminal, regardless of race. Neighborhood criminals was always counseled by parents and wise elder is…”You going to get caught,”… “Don’t let me catch you before the law,”…take that madness down on 3rd Street.” Everybody in the neighborhood knew criminals realized in their little petty minds they would eventually get caught and do time. Nobody made excuse for people when the law caught them involved in crimes.
Especially those given second chances to straighten up and fly right, so to speak, but instead petty minds willfully chose a life of crime or the path to crime.
These liberal / democratic minded people (Far left) invaded and took control of organizational politics and seats of influence in Black America, and in almost all our urban communities / cities endorsing and effectually condoning criminal behavior.
Black people once we were growing into a well-balanced and unified social community (more conservative than liberal) separated from White communities. By neighborhood boundaries placed indirectly by society forces but for the most part directly designed by group cognitive collectivism in “migration,” terms (Birds of the same feather stick together), which naturally occurs with birds. More importantly with my point, it is a human characteristic as well.
American Liberal Democrats, advocating integrations are both attempting to alter this innate human characteristic (race groups grouping) in a broad social and academic scheme that is a total failure in the American society.
I personally, do not have a problem with that part of human nature, but unlike the mind of a White racist, I will not interfere with any person of any race from pursuing life, liberty, and property ownership even if they are next door or across the tracks. Black and White liberals are convince this is a social problem and must be agitated to end White people thinking that they have an exclusive right to control the nation social affairs, their White ancestors established for the prosperity of their posterity in these lands called the United States of America.
Black liberals have not stopped in thought if they (White liberals) think it needs changing than why not convince their next-door (White) neighbor to change their group thinking by integrating with the Black community across the tracks or the other side of town. My mother raised me and mine siblings not to go where we are not wanted. In addition, more importantly do not do business with anyone that does not respect your patriotism. I believe all Black American mothers need to nurture my mother race teachings in their Black children.
Furthermore, I contend criminality is not the main problem in Black communities because the criminal mind would exist even if poor Black communities were overall in good social health at levels comparable to pre 1980’s in our society.
What happen to Black America prior to the 1980’s was in essence, a dead zone (1970’s) for pure Black social political consciousness. Black consciousness was transformed into liberal Black thinkers (Endorsed by White society and its academic institutions) chasing a piece of the American dream (Today through social service grant funding targeted to the poor to ease the sting of poverty) at the cost of ignoring the group-group thinking upward mobility in the society.
Street level Black activism or grass-roots movements was discouraged to these new Black thinkers (The Talented 10 %) during this decade, but for those Black Americans caught in the snare of impoverished despair. The White liberal / democratic society our group integrated into, overall, did not care two cents about the deteriorating social conditions and deteriorating economics and infrastructure (housing and business activity) in Americas inner cities where Black Americans dominated population wise.
Black liberals need to answer this 21st Century, May 21, 2015 problem between Black and White Americans:
- Why did we integrate into White America?
- You say integration (On the efforts of Black Americans) is working than why is racism on a vengeance in today’s American society.
- Is it too late to start over in advancing the Black American experience because honestly a blind man can see integration is not working?
I am one Black man out of many that do not endorse the social path our race / group is heading down in the American society. We do not endorse criminality nor criminal perpetrators preying on their brethren, children and mothers in our society.
Acts of criminal nature occurring in the Black community must be, dealt a blow from within our community, if not; the greater society will continue to be justified, in its policing activities in our communities. Regardless of the facts, we are indeed over police by White males who have no compassion for the Black race. Over incarcerated and judged by White male judges and White dominated juries not really our peers in the society.
