The burden to produce change/results is always placed on the community and never on those in power or those whose job it is to keep us safe. When they can’t get a grip on crime, its our fault. When the community refuses to get involved for rear of retaliation from criminals and police, they are shamed… blamed. Ditto for witnesses who decline to testify due to lack of witness protection. When 5 were found dead in a boarded up apartment complex while the slumlord still rented out units, councilwoman Hazel Erby who represented this area for well over a decade blamed the community for not letting her know.
The community gets zero resources, a zero budget and has zero ability to hold anyone accountable, yet gets blamed for everything… from trashed neighborhoods (despite the city not picking up trash) to the high rate of unsolved murders.
It’s easy for spokesnegros to say “We have got to stop fighting each other”, but difficult to speak on the actual battle that’s taking place: the white establishment Democrat machine and their black minions VS the black misleadership/overseer class. The rest of us are collateral damage.
