"Black babies matter too"

Hermene D. Hartman, asks in N'Digo, "Do black lives matter to blacks too?"

An excerpt:

Black men have to stand up for Black boys and teach and mentor and protect them. Black on Black crime is greater than police crime.

The police crime becomes more noticed because of its cruelty too often on minutia, but Blacks killing babies is outrageous. The three-year-old and the 20-month-old baby have done absolutely nothing riding in the car with your dad, sitting in the window at home, riding in the car with your mother, and sitting on the couch as a child should not get you killed.

Black Babies Matter, TOO

  • It should go without saying that black babies matter. The fact that you have to say it highlights the problem.

    It's disingenuous though, to equate it with unarmed black men being killed by armed police.

    Black babies are being killed by criminals. Their activity is already illegal and policing has been ineffective against them. Easy access to guns compounds the problem a hundred fold.

    When black men are killed by police, that is the very face of the state acting in complete disregard of their lives.

    If you don't think police need to be held to a higher standard than street thugs and gangbangers, then you are clearly part of the problem.
