Last week, I heard on the news that the Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco was offering a hundred thousand dollar reward, for the suspects involved in the recent incident on the T-Train in the Bayview that resulted in the death of one elderly man.
I’m hoping this will make people come forward and tell the city who the assailants are. Because this type of s--t ain’t cool. Things like this stir up race issues.
We’ve had three incidents where, elderly Asian people were attacked by
young black males.
Two of those incidents were on the T-Train and the other just recently in Oakland. The media is trying to turn it into this whole Asian Vs. Black thing, but it’s not. It’s really just youngsters, doing what ever they feel like doing.
Youngsters see these vulnerable people, who can’t speak English and they take advantage of them.
I mean, think about it, who would you most likely rob: a four foot Asian or a six foot black guy? For one, it’s easier, but there’s also a language barrier. Even though two of incidents resulted in deaths, I believe they were just robberies gone bad.
I can’t go into detail about these incidents because I wasn't there and I don’t trust the media. But I do know this isn’t a race issue. These aren't hate crimes against Asians, these are just young dumb n----s acting up. Now, we have to understand our own thinking process.
Society is cool when blacks hurt blacks but as soon as it affects other people. It’s a problem. Black on Black violence is a constant phenomenon but as soon as Asians get hurt, it’s a massacre. That’s just like the church shooting in Richmond, cats been getting killed in Richmond but as soon as it hits the church, we want to have marches and shit.
As a community, we need to decide when enough is enough. If we hate crime, then we should hate all crimes and all criminals. Rape aint’ cool, robbery ain’t cool, dope dealing ain’t cool, pimping ain’t cool and any other illegal activity, ain’t cool.
That’s where we’re supposed to draw the line.
