|In This Incident A (Black) Woman Was Shot In The Head Off Of Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd In Atlanta. Since This Is A Relatively Violent Area Of The City This Will Be Evaluated As A Normal Violent Shooting - Possibly Of A Prostitute Along A Strip That Is A Red Light District||In This Incident Two Women Were Shot In The Head. They Were Lesbian Lovers And As A Result This Attack Will Be Evaluated As A Possible Civil Rights Violation And Hate Crime|
Recall last summer when the "Gay Black Male" received a beat down in the "Pittsburgh Community" of Atlanta and I told you that this happened in the context of a violent community but if this Black male wasn't gay no one would have cared? His sexual orientation made this a "Hate Crime" and thus the local news trucks with their microwave transmission towers would not have wasted the gasoline to roll out to the scene of the crime. This would have otherwise been "par for the course" in this community.
The two videos above give us yet another chance to show the irony of our present societal circumstances.
Please understand the point - the two "White girls" who were shot in the head will not get more press coverage as compared to the girl who was shot in Atlanta, just off of Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, BECAUSE they are WHITE.
Amy Goodman of "Democracy Now" (the BEST progressive-fundamentalist news source in my opinion because, unlike others - they actually believe what they report and are willing to attack their progressive friends in power if they violate the trust of the people) brought the issue of the two girls shot in the head in Texas onto the national stage BECAUSE they might be victims of a hate crime due to their sexual orientation.
I am not here to ponder the issues in Texas though.
I want to talk about what happened in Atlanta on Gordon Street, just off of "Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd".
Based upon my intimate knowledge of the area in question - this is very close to the scene of the crime where a woman was shot in the head in Atlanta, left upon the street to die. It is very, very probable that she is Black because this is a Black community on the south west border of Atlanta.

The primary reason for my apparent hostilities against "The Civil Rights Pharisees" and the "Black Racial Services Machine" that they are a part of is because they would prefer to look at their crowing achievement of having successfully gotten the name "Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr" affixed to the name of the street as they venerate "Civil Rights Heroes" who fought for protection and justice for Black people - than they can show competency is keeping Black people safe from assault ON "Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd" (or more commonly Rev's Lowery or Rev Boone Blvds - the two most violent streets in Atlanta for a Black person to be accosted by a Street Pirate) .
IF the street was named "General Beauregard Lee" BUT was the "safest street for Black people to walk on at night in America" - which do you think the Civil Rights Pharisees would STRUGGLE to obtain?
- The removal of the name which recognizes our OPPRESSORS
- The actual expression of "Social Justice" in which Black people are made SAFE by a network of community based practices - which are EFFECTIVE at keeping Black people safe, regardless of who's damned name is on the street!!!!!
Do you understand that this scheme of SERIAL ABSTRACTION from the core interests of the Black Community brings forth the condition that we face today? When we NEED to lean upon the INSTITUTIONS that should have been built up during this time of relative peace in the "inter-racial gun battle", those who choose to USE Black people based upon their intimate knowledge of WHAT MAKES US TICK PSYCHOLOGICALLY - understand that they don't need to focus on the build up and maintenance of these INSTITUTIONS FOR COMMUNITY GOVERNANCE.
If they set up the next "Struggle Motion" in which they initiated a fight to force neighboring Cobb County to stop "Disrespecting Dr King" by refusing to change the name of "Veterans High Way" - the name that "Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd" changes into once you cross the county line on the very same street - more of our people will show up for the protest rally in front of the Cobb County Commission than will be seen responding to this, the latest assault on a grand boulevard named after one of the "Venerated Civil Rights Heroes".
I honestly do not blame the "Civil Rights Pharisees". They are operating off of the mandate for "Congregational Unity". They use the tactics and tricks that they understand will work to draw upon the hooks that a "desperate people" with a psychological void inside of them offer up for tethering.
My main criticism is that there are too few voices from the "Black Rank & File" AND THE BLACK MEDIA - who make a larger picture appraisal of the situation and begin to force the Embedded Confidence Men into a larger framework by which their antics are necessarily sublimated into a more transparent and productive agenda.
IF we assume that the active pursuit of CIVIL RIGHTS shows that the high minded activist CARES ABOUT THE LEAST OF THESE. That today's Oppressed Homosexual is yesterday's "Ninja Who Got Herself Kilt" for daring to "Be Black In The Wrong Side Of Town".......................HOW THEN can we look at the scene today in Atlanta that is never seen featured on "The Constantly Arguing Housewives Of Atlanta" and proclaim that CARING is the driving theme which shaped this present situation?
I say that it is INCOMPETENCE at actually delivering the 'Social Justice" that you strung us along for. Now that the EXTERNAL ENEMY which proved to be a useful too for 'Congregational Unity' is not present anywhere along "Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd" (except downtown in the state capitol building) these communities that line this grand thoroughfare that is the crowning achievement of your STRUGGLE now requires a different skill set to do the "interior decorating" as YOU have moved on to "Struggle" on behalf of other "The Least Of These Groups" because you are merely a political creation, having long ago separated your advocacy from the intent to actually develop the Black community.
