I have left metro-Atlanta for an extended weekend trip with the family but the Street Pirates never seem to take a vacation. In fact their swarms grow during the warm weather months.
Put this incident where 2 men where found shot (and I assume left for dead) in Stone Mountain Georgia, as yet more proof that in the Black community symbols of the "Civil Rights Struggle" past are more powerful than the assaults upon Black people that take place after the "mountain" has been secured by "our side".
The only problem is that I am not sure that the best interests of "our side" are being promoted now that a new regime has taken over the governance of the community.
I posted about the history lesson that long time Dekalb County GA resident (the late) Hosea Williams had shared with us. He told about the straight out racism that was present in the county. A Black man walking down Memorial Drive after a certain time had better have a work uniform on and be able to tell the cops exactly where he was coming from and where he is going.
Sadly today Memorial Drive in Dekalb County is yet another one of those main arteries upon which Black people are commonly assaulted. (Note: The commemorative name of "Memorial Drive" is "Cynthia McKinney Parkway". Though the commemorative sign has been up for about 7 years the new designation was never fully embraced and thus the "Memorial Drive" name was never really retired.).
Once again we see that the Black community collective consciousness is focused upon the glorious past of the Civil Rights Struggle than we are in managing the human resources that are within these same places today.
