Aaron Hamilton recently said what many others in the mostly African-American and solidly middle-class Leimert Park district of
South Los Angeles think but won't say:


"It is almost taboo to speak out against black leaders even though
they may not be measuring up to the various tasks at hand," Hamilton

objective and abandon old ways is what is going to bring us down." Read more

I saw a bumper sticker the other day that relates, if only a little bit:

God doesn't kill people. People with God kill people.

Omaha is one of the most dangerous cities for black males - very near the top. Our "leaders" have coalesced to deal with the problem and through the "Empowerment Network" and "Omaha 360" funded mainly by well meaning priviliged folks have concluded that the #1 recommendation for dealing with this problem is to pray. As a so-called community leader in the most affected quadrant I'm saying, "Prayin' ain't cuttin' it." Our police chief has concluded that the common thread in the shootings is guns. That's helpful (aarrrggghhhhh!). We need to question our leaders.
