    It's so sad that these young men don't see the value of life or even their lives. I look at it as a deplorable and cowardly act upon the young man that's dead and his family whom is hurting. Until some blacks realize ( these are the criminals minds ) that they are the ones depleting their race they will continue to descend. Blacks once was 22% population in America then we fell hard to 13% I have to look up all the facts to the decline, but we are reportedly at 12% currently, which is probably due to the black on black crimes. What I need for these black activist to do is stop all violence by educating these gang members that if they continue killing blacks on the scale they are killing them, then in 100 years (I wont be here) the black population will probably be 7%. I like to speak to people about the future, and how their children can contribute to that and live well. The one thing I have learned from white people is that they prepare for their children and people future.
