I’m certainly not talking to the oblivious BW described in a recent Facebook post by Breukelen Bleu. As she correctly notes, there are large numbers of BW who are so preoccupied with issues that primarily affect BM that they’re not paying attention to the various things that are already affecting them and their dependent children:
"The shit that is unraveling in front of us is insane, but most BW are not even discussing it because all of their attention is going to issues that predominantly affect BM.
They are privatizing the projects.http://observer.com/2014/12/on-the-market-nycha-to-sell-stake-in-public-housing-to-private-developers/Closing abortion clinics.

I sincerely hope that BW are prepared to accept what comes when you focus exclusively on the needs of others, while the world around you crumbles."
Anyhoo, there’s been something tugging at the edge of my thoughts after I published THIS POST about the angry BM who shot his BW ex-girlfriend before killing 2 New York City police officers purportedly as revenge for the police killing of Eric Garner.
I’ve been educating myself, and the thought that’s been nagging at me became fully formed while watching my [Latino] firearms instructor show some of the gun rights and related news videos he has collected. Including the video embedded below that’s about a local case from Chicago.
Another (numerically MUCH larger) threat to consider is the growing number of AA males with dead eyes. I don’t know about you, but lately I’ve noticed that I’m seeing more and more random BM with dead eyes walking around in public. There’s a LOT of hate in those dead eyes.
And guess who those BM With Dead Eyes perceive as the easiest and most appropriate target for that hatred? If you’re savvy, you’ll get ready just in case those dead eyes decide to run up on you. I hope I'm wrong about this. All I do know for sure is that I've correctly predicted a number of things that many other AA women didn't see coming until after-the-fact.
I keep tabs on these sorts of news stories because: (1) As a Muslim, I'm appalled and nauseated by the atrocities being carried out in the name of my religion by demon-possessed, deranged lunatics. See 46 examples of Muslims condemning this latest atrocity HERE. Additionally, the leader of the Shi'ite Muslim group Hezbollah said on Friday that Islamist terrorists had done more harm to Islam than any cartoon or book, a reference to the attack by suspected Islamist militants on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. See HERE.
And (2) as I've mentioned to other African-American Muslims over the years, I believe we in the U.S. are about 2 atrocities away from being rounded up like the Japanese-Americans were during WWII. Which is yet another reason why I've always urged AA Muslims to get and keep passports. Finally, (3) foreign Black Muslims should be concerned because each atrocity increases the likelihood that you won't be able to run to Western Europe and the U.S. to escape your native tyrants.
My main point in this addendum is that the African-heritage BM terrorist (who had an Arab North African girlfriend/wife) involved in this incident fits into the emerging behavior pattern I mentioned in this post: He murdered an unarmed BW traffic cop named Clarissa Jean-Philippe (who was of Caribbean heritage from Martinique) BEFORE running off to take (presumably White) hostages (and kill some of them) in a kosher Jewish grocery store.
Rest in peace, Clarissa.
