black lives must not matter until black people start respecting black lives and stop killing each other

Pastor’s eulogy at Aretha Franklin’s funeral created a shitstorm of criticism on social media
“It amazes me how it is when the police kills one of us we're ready to protest, march, destroy innocent property. We're ready to loot, steal whatever we want, but when we kill 100 of us, nobody says anything, nobody does anything. Black on black crime, we're all doing time, we're locked up in our mind, there's got to be a better way, we must stop this today.
No, black lives do not matter. Black lives will not matter, black lives ought not matter, black lives should not matter, black lives must not matter until black people start respecting black lives and stop killing ourselves.”
So spoke Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. during his eulogy at Aretha Franklin’s funeral. Williams also said:
“Where is your soul, black man? As I look in your house, there are no fathers in the home no more. As proud, beautiful and fine as our black women are, one thing a black woman cannot do, a black woman cannot raise a black boy to be a man.”
No truer words were ever spoken, but a shitstorm of criticism exploded on social media well before Williams finished hi 50-minute eulogy. While I do not entirely agree with what Williams said about black mothers, the truth is that most gangbangers and many prison inmates grew up in a home without a father.
Rev. Williams, who is the pastor of the Salem Baptist Church in Atlanta, also eulogized Franklin's father 34 years ago.
I cannot help but believe that most of Williams’ critics are black. It’s too bad they cannot handle the truth.
Editors Note: Black Lives Matter has always turned a blind eye to the glaring truth that Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. stated at Aretha Franklin's funeral. BLM needs to spend a weekend in South Chicago. Any weekend will do because blacks have been murdering blacks there for years. Come on BLM address this sad situation or can you just not handle the truth?
