It was nice for the BLM Network (also known as NBC) to interrupt its coverage of the Breonna Taylor protest Saturday to show the Kentucky Derby. The protesters have a legitimate issue in Ms. Taylor's death, but it has nothing to do with race. No-knock warrants need to be re-evaluated and certainly the procedures of the Louisville PD need to be thoroughly reviewed to prevent officers from going to the wrong address. Somebody needs to be held responsible.
Meanwhile on Aug. 18, Louisville had two murders that were the 99th and 100th of the year. They have already surpassed last years total with four months to go. Of the murders, 40 victims have been under 26 years old. This includes Trinity Randolph, a three-year-old who was sitting in her dollhouse when gunned down.
I am happy to see one community leader in Louisville, Christopher 2X, actually understands the problem. Here is his quote from the Louisville Courier Journal:
“The unity has to be real, and the way we’ve come together for Breonna (Taylor), ....we’ve got to come together for all these kids that are dying to senseless violence and never had a chance because they grew up in an environment that normalized violence at a young age."
Good for you Christopher, the black community needs many more leaders like yourself.
