ANOTHER SHOOTING IN JAMAICA THIS SUNDAY – GOING TO BE A HOT BLOODY SUMMER AS USUAL

Three shootings in the city this week, all on Sunday between 12:15am and 12:49am. In Brooklyn, Harlem and Jamaica (Laurelton). Just a guess, but I don’t think any of the shooters or victims were White, Asian or Indian. Just a hunch, but a good hunch. AND the city says crime is down. Maybe, but certainly not in communities of color and just what does that say of communities of color that no one wants to speak about.

And why is is relevant to mention race, BECAUSE IT IS. Because this is the same pattern over and over and over again that keeps getting ignored.
