Niggas Get Shot Everyday B… – Rico [Paid In Full]
Words from Rico a character played by Cam’ron, in the movie “Paid In Full”. Do yourself a favour and check it out.
I have to agree with Rico comments, especially when referring to the Trayvon Martin case. Don’t get me wrong death should never be ignored or dismissed. What I get frustrated at is the media circus, which correlates to social media, surrounding one individuals life. Especially in a country where places like Chicago are at 183 homicides this year. There are so many untold stories out there and many remain untold, due to the fact that the person pulling the trigger in those cases were black.
Jonylah Watikins was six months years old when she was shot in the neck. She later died at the hospital. Jonylah’s father (gang banger and intended target) was with Jonylah at the time. Since the victims and perpetrators are black, this story got swept under the rug as another black on black crime.
Also I feel that this Trayvon Martin case was only set on a national stage, due to its racial implications. In the past 5 years I can think of many other injustices that garnered little or any national coverage. This obviously is due to the fact that in those cases race was not a factor.
Blacks kill each other everyday and nobody seems to be outraged over those situations, or maybe they are and have gotten tired of speaking out. In my opinion the whole race issue is getting old.
Blacks will continue to be profiled the same way Asians are for being smart. The only difference is that compared to most races blacks have the most negative stereo types. Thus, creates an eternal struggle for blacks across this globe trying to shed that persona. Many of the problems blacks face are due to our own actions and failure to take accountability.
As a black man I live the shit everyday and though I cannot compare myself to blacks living south of the boarder racism knows no bounds.
In the end even though Trayvon’s death is tragic and it is a terrible situation.
I am sorry but Rico is dead on “Niggas get shot everyday b”.
