Black Youth

During a Disaster

Not just because they are black.

I am also black. They say birds of a feather stick together but with the flock, I am flying, it was pretty rough, for me at least.

Glad another flock came about.

I saw them everywhere, walking in groups, sometimes as many as ten or twelve strong. I know they didn't mean any harm but just think about it or did they.

There is a natural disaster and every body needs helping, who are you going to help?

I mean teenagers, high schoolers, athletes, strong future generation, half-grown ass, sorry individuals, refusing to help anybody.

Yes, multiple tornadoes hit, black neighborhoods and Yes, black youth were walking around observing what, I do not know, other than they flat out refused and made it very clear, they were not helping anybody.

These were our youth, from our neighborhoods, had trees and debris fall on their homes, needed help getting it cleared and yet they found time to gather, walk about with cell phones and refuse to lend a helping hand to a neighbor in need.

I am sorry but it was my experience, as I worked and helped fifteen senior families, no charge. It is the truth and it is a sign of the way, we are raising our children.

Now, I am not joining in with Bill Cosby but I am saying there has got to be a change.

If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith.
