You have to be very honest, and truthful with yourself when it comes to senseless situations like this, and raise the question to how serious and concerned some of our people really are about the these type of tragic acts that clearly show to be an ongoing problem when it comes to Kalamazoo community violence. After reading the story on this Shooting and death of a 22-year-old man and 40-year-old woman all I could do is just shake my head, because though it is a tragic and very sad situation in the end it shows to be nothing new when it comes to a growing problem with youth violence in the hood/community. It just seems like it’s a damn black cloud over that area right there on Church and Norway.
So why do I say this you might ask? Well, because when I think about the last shooting and death of a young man who also lost his life right there on that corner a few years ago how could I naught? And naught to mention all the other conflicts that have arisen in just that area alone, but we also know that, it’s also going on in other neighborhoods on other sides of town as well. Can you see it yet? No? Well, apparently you must naught be being truthful with oneself to the real reality and truth to the matter, and see things for what they really are that our people don’t know how to find a better way to resolve issues that they have due to lack in social and communication skills? Maybe.
So, I would ask you, the ones who actually have to live and experience these situations hands on : “Are our people really concerned at all and truly want the need for things to change in their environment/community?” Or do you just scream and call for help when tragedies occur like this after the fact.
The next question is, what are you doing that helps the community where you reside? Are you for and involved with certain activities by engaging in them that you clearly know that are naught good for you and your community and external environment, or are you against? It is a must that one take a very good look at what you are surrounded around and then ask your self: “What the hell is really going on?”
People especially ours In These Dayz Of Tyme have been, and are very well-known for “BEING WITH THE SHITS” by the engaging in any and everything that promotes and projects negative images, living the good ole illusion “HOOD LIFE” style, and everything is fine until horrible acts like this happens and now you’re fed up, and don’t like the feeling of having to be scared and look over your shoulders. So tell me, why is that? Are y’all really paying attention? Do you really give a damn?
Some of our people are naught in their right minds did you know that? You have these dudes running around with guns and drugs throughout the neighborhoods RECKLESS MINDED without a care in the world with a chip on they’re shoulders, PROGRAMMED, full of attitude and music in they’re ears that put’s people in a certain mood, and all this alone is what I see to play much of the biggest part in all of this mess care to beg to differ?
You really have to start asking self if you care so damn much that; why is it taking our people to have to experience so much pain, suffering, heartache, sorrow, hurt, fear and feeling of hopelessness for one to finally want the need to wake the hell up, and realize that, there’s a great chance that, it’s some of our very own people who are so conditioned mentally, and brainwashed to the point where they can see clearly what is right and wrong, but choose to navigate towards engaging in the wrong by involvement, but expecting different results and outcomes to be good why is that?
You accept, and adopt other peoples ways of living and lifestyles and or welcome all of these things with open arms knowing damn well that there’s a clear chance that there will be bullshit that will be tagging right along with it, but you still allow and accept it all for the sake of so-called living your life, “Y.O.L.O,” because hey, who wants to live a boring life right? Let’s be very honest here, is it naught showing that our people are doing it to themselves? All our people do is dog one another out, scheme on one another, plot to hurt one another, rob and take from one another, misguide one another, deceive one another, poison one another, and let’s naught forget kill one another, and even use Facebook to carry on with the madness, but Black Lives Matter right?
Our people are some of the biggest excuse makers in order to do whatever they want to without consequence, I know this well because once upon a time, I too was a part of the problems within’ the community rather than being one who is a seeker of solutions, but experience is good teacher.
Now, to get back to why I am doing this post. It is said that; this all happen because of a dispute among-st one those who live in the same neighborhood? And the picking on of someones little brother. First off, LEAVE OTHER PEOPLE’S CHILDREN ALONE. Second, STOP TRYING TO BULLY PEOPLE, and there’s a lot of that going on right now. And third, if you have differences with one another and they’re family and you just don’t know how to get along with one another YOU DON’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH ONE ANOTHER PERIOD so quit violating other peoples space, and right to life.
It’s time to stop making excuses to be irresponsible, negligent and careless minded when it comes to awareness and safety within your own communities in Kalamazoo. Start giving a damn about where YOU have to live, and YOU have to stay, and where YOUR FAMILY ESPECIALLY YOUR MOTHERS AND CHILDREN HAVE TO LIVE AND PLAY, and be accountable, responsible and take ownership, and stop allowing people access to come and tear down, and destroy what is already struggling for life as it is (Your Neighborhood). As a man, artist and voice. Am I wrong for feeling the way that I feel and expressing what I am taking the time out to type and post today in concern of what’s really going on in the communities in Kalamazoo? Do you Really Want Things To Change Within’ Your Communities?
I’ve been touching on and addressing these on going issues, I try to do my part, because I know how this goes, and how it will end if you continue making all these excuses, and y’all continue to ignore, naught pay attention and clearly show by your lack of interest and non-involvement by choosing naught to engage with me on the things that I post, and that is your choice, you can expect it to continue to go on. In the end, I’m a continue to do what I’m doing regardless, whether you engage or naught. Why? Because apparently, I’m just an artist whose showing you that; there is hope and I do give a damn, but y’all gotta give a damn about yourselves and conditions, where you have to live, and your own self and mind state too. and how about wanting to learn to be and do better for self and your community. WE ARE KALAMAZOO.
How important is your love for self and your community?
