What About Our Daughters?: Another Black Woman Gang Raped While Neighbors Listen to Screams...and DO NOTHING!#links#links

Man's inhumanity to man. I pray that someone would call if this were my two young daughters or myself. This is one of the reasons I stay home, to protect them. This is one of the reasons I work with the girls in an "at-risk" neighborhood, to protect them. I had the local police come in a month ago to teach the middle school girls self-defense because as this report and statistics show, black women are raped and assaulted by black men.

Black men, fathers, rise up, please, we implore you. Will you protect us or will you assault us? We are the only ones who can make ourselves better, this is not something that is the fault of the "man" or lack of anything but decency.

Black women, protect yourself.

Black community...come on people! We can do better than this!

Poverty is the ruin of the poor.
