One thought on “Louisiana Rapper Shot, Killed in His Hometown”
  1. When I read about these gang related deaths it reminds me of how ridiculous the glamorization of the thug lifestyle truly is. We ss a society have normalized this despicable cycle of hatred and violence. We see white elitist liberals use cultural appropriation to garner support from black voters and it’s despicable. These young lives full of potential are just thrown away over literally nothing and this is what leftists want for you and me to accept as normal. These concepts hurt the black community more than any other and yet we see this agenda pushed daily. As a nation we deserve to have better for all our citizens. These young men primarily are sacrificed in the name of equity when in reality it’s just another form of population control. Martin Luther King needs to be brought back to the realm of normality and the scumbags who claim what’s best is a continuation of the status quotient should be held accountable. These young men have families and their lives matter yet nobody says a word unless there’s a profit to be made or an agenda to sustain. Every single time I read a story like this it confirms my beliefs that these idiotic democrats don’t give a damn about young black people killing each other while being told it’s not their fault. This virtue signaling wokeness creates an atmosphere of perennial victimhood and does nothing to end the plight of the black man. Stop voting for liars and understand the only way out of this cycle is through sustainable economic opportunity and not in handouts and false promises.
