My Black Crime Problem, and Ours

There was a time when I mixed Jameson Irish Whiskey with my coffee for breakfast every morning. I would have several cups throughout the day. It got to a point that when I showed up at the liquor store at Mejier, the lady behind the counter would simply grab a bottle from the shelf behind her and sack it up. 

That was embarrassing, but I didn't quit.

Nope. I just started buying it from the Liquor Barn Express down the street from me next to  Kroger.

I didn't stop drinking until the 25th day of June nine years ago. That was the day a young white man, named DYLAN ROOF (30), walked into a Charleston, South Carolina church and shot nine black people to death. 

Three days after the shooting, a website titled The Last Rhodesian was discovered with photos of Roof posing with neo-Nazi and other symbols of white supremacy. The site also contained a manifesto that outlined the teenager's racist views on Black people. Roof said he developed his white supremacist ideology after reading about the 2012 killing of TRAYVON MARTIN (17) and Black-on-white crime.

Two months later, riots erupted in Ferguson, Missouri after the justified  police shooting of MICHAEL BROWN (18).

People tend to forget that all of this social upheaval occurred under the weak leadership and presidency of BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA II (62), who was mostly concerned with LGBTQ+ rights, March Madness brackets and his summer playlist -- which led to the election of television reality star DONALD JOHN TRUMP (77). 

Now we have a career criminal in the White House courtesy of the Black Lives Matter riots that followed the police killing of GEORGE FLOYD (46).

Joe Biden being... Joe Biden.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, black crime is (and has always been) the most effective tool in the "white supremacist propaganda playbook". Young black men and women have joined the opposing team in the streets of New York, Houston, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, and Los Angeles; as well as smaller cities, like Louisville, Kentucky, where NEGRO DIGEST ™ magazine is headquartered. 

The homicide rate in this city has surpassed triple digits every year since the BLM riots that raged after police shot local resident BREONNA TAYLOR (26) on March 13, 2020. Now major retailers, like drugstore chain CVS, are abandoning the predominately African-American west end communities.

The spike in violent black crime, particularly by our young people, has stymied much-needed police reform here in Louisville, and in similar-sized cities with large African-American populations, like Memphis, Tennessee, where  five black officers beat TYRE NICHOLS (29) to death on January 7th of last year. 

Five weeks after that brutal slaying, on  February 15, 2023, teenage white supremacist PAYTON S. GENDRON (20) was sentenced to 11 consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole for shooting eleven African-Americans to death in a Buffalo, New York supermarket the previous summer.

Deja Vu? That's why I quit drinking. I realized it was best for me to be sober-minded and watchful because my "adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." (1 Peter 5:8)

And these are very real adversaries, like the racist psychopath killer you see in the mugshot below.

On the afternoon of October 24, 2018, the man above, GREGORY A. BUSH (51),  tried to enter a service of the predominately black First Baptist Church of Jeffersontown here in Louisville, but was stopped by its locked doors, so he entered a Kroger grocery store (that is literally just up the road from where I'm typing this) and shot two black senior citizens to death.

A Caucasian man, who pulled his weapon on Bush as he fled Kroger's parking lot, says the murderer told him: 

"Don't shoot me. I won't shoot you. Whites don't shoot whites."
