One of Freddie Gray's Best Friends Fatally Shot in Baltimore (Day Before Goodson Acquittal)... by Black Male

Black lives don't matter.

They really, really don't.

Perhaps this story illustrates the fact "black lives don't matter" with an aggressively over-the-top exclamation point.[Freddie Gray circle suffered another loss day before Goodson acquittal, Baltimore Sun, June 24, 2016]:
As news of the acquittal of a Baltimore police officer in the death of Freddie Gray spread Thursday, some of Gray's friends silently mourned a more recent loss — the death of their friend Donzell Canada.
Canada, one of Gray's close friends, was fatally shot Wednesday near Gilmor Homes in West Baltimore.
He was Baltimore's 127th homicide victim of the year.
Canada, 29, known as "Zelly" in the neighborhood, lived on North Fulton Avenue and was often seen around Gilmor Homes with Gray and friends.
Canada said in an interview last year that Gray was his childhood friend and one of more than 10 people he knew who have died in recent years.
Police responded to the shooting at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Presstman Street and North Fulton Avenue, where they found Canada and a 16-year-old boy with gunshot wounds. The boy survived.
When asked last year about how he coped with Gray's death, Canada said: "Honestly, I didn't know how to feel because I've lost a lot of friends on these same streets, and I'm kind of getting numb — not numb, but it's not a surprise."
Before Gray died, he and Canada had been job hunting online, looking at construction companies. But they weren't getting any traction, Canada said.
Gray had been convicted of narcotics offenses around Gilmor Homes. Canada said Gray's small-time drug dealing was how "he put food in his mouth and whoever else around who needed it."
It's not the life he chose or wanted," Canada said. "He was trying to escape and overcome it."
Canada spoke to The Baltimore Sun last August as he marked what would have been Gray's 26th birthday.
"There was no limit to what he would do for his friends," Canada said of Gray as he and several other friends held a cookout at Gilmor. They also visited Gray's gravesite and then watched the movie "Straight Outta Compton."
Pictures of Canada, Gray and their friends blanket Gray's Instagram site. One of the last pictures Gray posted was of him with Canada.
The Rev. Rodney Hudson, a pastor at nearby Ames Memorial United Methodist Church, knew Canada and Gray and remembered them both as humorous and loyal friends.
Canada and Gray "were all for one, one for all," he said.
Hudson said he was shocked by the news of Canada's death, even though such shootings are all too common in West Baltimore.
"A lot of their group has gotten killed," Hudson said.
He remembered seeing Canada and Gray in the neighborhood and said they would sometimes come over for soup at the church.
The morning Gray was arrested and transported to a hospital, Canada said, he was on his way to a doctor's appointment with his daughter.
"I was shocked, but I didn't think it was serious," he said.
But when he and his friends arrived at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, they learned that Gray had arrived unconscious without a heartbeat.
"How can you go from walking into a vehicle being able to speak to arriving at a hospital without a heartbeat?" he asked. "I don't understand."
A little more than a year later, Canada would arrive at the same hospital. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter, according to police reports.
Before he died, Canada said there were two things he hoped people would take away from Gray's death: "Black Lives Matter and just cherish every day, because tomorrow is not promised."
Canada's relatives could not be reached for comment.
 What can we take away from Canada's death, who happened to be a close friend of the late Freddie Gray?

That "black lives don't matter," unless a white liberal can capitalize off of their death and make other white people feel guilty about the lifeless black body in question.

England Prevails

What are your thoughts on the English voting to leave the European Union?

Is this a harbinger of things to come in the U.S., with the end of globalization upon us?

The true face of globalism: the black immigrant who murdered British soldier Lee Rigby in the daytime on a street in London

Father's Day Hilarity in Syracuse... Courtesy of Blacks

This past Father's Day 2016 happened to be my first as a father. It meant a lot.

I couldn't stop smiling the entire day, knowing the duty that I had as a father to my not even one-year-old child.

In the stunning blue eyes starring back at me, I knew the world my young child had entered was one in dire need of Trump... a man on the verge of tearing down the damn of political correctness once and for all.

Because a story of black dysfunction such as the one you're about to read cannot be blamed on white racism. It's just a hilarious reminder of what black people do on.... Father's Day.   [Syracuse shooting: Man shot to death went by alias; at least 4 guns used in fight, Syracuse.com, June 20, 2016]:
Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler confirmed this afternoon that a man was killed during gunfire Sunday night in a courtyard surrounded by apartments on the city's Near West Side.

The man who was fatally shot was identified as Gary Porter, 41, the chief said. He would not say if Porter was armed.
Porter went by the alias Terry Maddox, the chief and the victim's friends and family indicated. Fowler did not use Maddox's name at a news conference, but acknowledged that the victim had been identified by his alias.
The chief said he had been in contact with Porter's father, who was out-of-town but planned to meet with Fowler in coming days. The two planned to make a joint statement at some point in the future, the chief said, but declined to elaborate.
At least four guns were used in Sunday's fight, Fowler said, pointing to shell casings found near the small courtyard surrounded apartment blocks.
The gunfire erupted in the small courtyard on Tully Street, where hundreds of people were celebrating Father's Day.

Police had gotten tips earlier that people planned to "shoot up" the celebration, said Mayor Stephanie Miner, who attended a news conference with Fowler this afternoon.
Fowler said it's not yet known if Porter was shot by a female officer who fired her service weapon during the incident. He promised to release that information once the crime lab and the medical examiner's office know for sure what happened.
The female officer, who Fowler did not name, heard shots ring out and ran in the direction of gunfire. But Fowler would not say what prompted the officer to fire. He only said that the officer ran in the direction of the bullets and faced a "deadly force situation" that caused her to fire.
The officer was injured, but Fowler would not say if she required treatment at a hospital.
A few other notes from this afternoon's news conference:
• Mayor Miner said that there had been problems in previous years during the Father's Day celebration at nearby Skiddy Park. This year, organizers were told they could not gather at the park, so they moved the party to the courtyard in the James Geddes Housing complex.
• The gunfire was unrelated to an earlier call nearby of a man down. An officer arrived at 11 p.m. to that call on Otisco Street, but found no one down, Miner said. The officer reported a large crowd and asked for help. Meanwhile, 911 was also getting calls from witnesses asking for more police, Miner said.
That's when the officer heard gunshots from the area of the courtyard on Tully Street, the mayor said. More calls came into 911 reporting the shooting, she said.
• Fowler said he was not aware of a third teenage victim whose family says was grazed in the head by a bullet. The chief said he understood that she suffered her injuries falling down.
 In the future, the right to produce children must not be left to chance. To me, once you have children, you understand the ultimate lesson of life is simply this: duty.

We have absolutely no duty to taking care of black people and their dysfunction... we only have a duty to our future.

That's it.

Black People Form SKOOP (Stop Killing Our Own People) in North Carolina city because... Blacks Can't Stop Killing Each Other

The Onion or any magazine dedicated to humor could never, absolutely ever beat what you are about to read. Courtesy of "the blacks" in North Carolina, we get this: SKOOP. [Violence in Burlington: ‘Something’s got to give: Residents form SKOOP: Stop Killing Our Own People, TheTimesNews.com, June 18, 2016]:

Before beginning any discussion, the first order of business Thursday for the small group gathered in the Mayco Bigelow Center was to remember the black victims who have lost their lives to violence in Burlington.
One by one, Lonetta Love read the names of the city of Burlington’s 23 black homicide victims from the past decade. The vast majority lost their lives at the hands of black suspects.
“The issue of black on black crime is widespread,” said Love, the single mother behind the newly formed coalition SKOOP, or Stop Killing Our Own People. “It is bigger than any one organization or project. I believe we all have to come together as leaders in organizations and teachers and mentors to accomplish this. And together, I believe that we can.”
The meeting Thursday, a day after the city of Burlington’s final “community conversations” event on gun violence, involved a small, hand-picked group of mothers, teachers and concerned citizens wanting to turn around the trend of black-on-black violence in Burlington.
The group was joined by Assistant Chief Chris Verdeck of the Burlington Police Department and Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson.
“It needs to stop, and the only way we can stop it is with your help,” Verdeck told the group. “And there needs to be 100 times more people in this room. We need to be spilling out into the hallway with people that are fed up with this garbage going on in our community, and until we get to that point it’s not going to change. Until we get to the point that people are willing to stand up and fight for their community, it’s not going to change. And that’s plain and simple.”
Love, a single mother of three, moved to Apple Street in 2007 while she worked to save up money to relocate to a better neighborhood.
“The amount of damage it did to my family was detrimental,” she said.
Her son, 12 at the time, had dreams of going to Cornell and becoming a veterinarian. Despite Love’s efforts, he fell into the wrong crowds and became involved in crime.
At 18, he was flown to UNC Hospitals after being stabbed in the chest in Burlington. Several convictions later, he’s in prison.
“He has been a victim of crime and he has committed crimes,” Love said. “It is my desire that no parent have to bury their child and that no more youth will end up in jail, prison or juvenile detention.”
So when Love read the news of the Memorial Day murder of Tony Daye Jr. — and the fact that a 17-year-old girl was among the suspects charged with his killing — she quickly formed SKOOP.
Among those present for the coalition’s first meeting was Celo Faucette, Burlington’s mayor pro tem and council member. The night before, he also addressed local residents gathered on the city’s west side at St. Mark’s Church to discuss ongoing shootings into houses that have led to other crimes.
“It breaks my heart to see what’s going on in my community,” Faucette said at St. Mark’s Church. “People call us a bedroom community, and we may be. But bedrooms weren’t meant to be shot in.”
Speaking again Thursday, he told the mothers and teachers gathered that they had an important role in seeing the climate change.
“You’re the bedrock of the community,” Faucette said. “You’re the ones who can control these kids out here today. This starts at home.”
And, as the conversation unfolded, it became clear that in addition to home, changes have to be made in schools and in neighborhoods; in how children are raised and taught and in how community members report information to the police.
“Something’s got to give here,” Johnson said. “People cannot sleep in their own homes and they’re afraid. That should never happen in the city of Burlington or the county of Alamance or the state of North Carolina or anywhere else. If we turn up the heat, we’re going to need the community’s support in doing that.”
Love said that she believed black on black crime stemmed from poverty, which includes a number of other issues like lack of opportunity, lack of self-worth and respect for others, and a sense of hopelessness.
 Holy cow. Haven't we been sufficiently propagandized into being forced to believe black lives matter? And yet, because black people can't stop shooting/killing other black people in Burlington, North Carolina, the illustrious SKOOP has been formed.

You probably will recall from your high school SAT prep studies that SKOOP is perhaps the ultimate example of onomatopoeia: you know, when you put your shovel into the ground and scoop out the dirt? Hence the term: shoveling $hit...

Few things are funnier than understanding how many communities across America are combating "black on black violence" while simultaneously being lectured to that black lives matter... if black lives mattered, SKOOP wouldn't exist.

Thankfully, because SKOOP exists, once again the much derided racist white people who created Jim Crow/Sundown laws/restrictive covenants/segregation have been proven correct with this hilariously onomatopoeia aptly summing up the black experience in America.
