Ethnic Cleansing of Blacks in LA

Posted: April 10, 2008 in Uncategorized

But who cares? … Who cares? They are black…who cares! They are allowing more and more illegal immigrants coming to the US and killing blacks

Who cares about blacks? No one

An open ethnic cleansing campaign against blacks and everyone is silent

In a murderous quest aimed at “cleansing” their turf of snitches and rival gangsters, members of one of Los Angeles County’s most vicious Latino gangs sometimes killed people just because of their race, an investigation found.

There were even instances in which Florencia 13 leaders ordered killings of black gangsters and then, when the intended victim couldn’t be located, said “Well, shoot any black you see,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said.

“In certain cases some murders were just purely motivated on killing a black person,” Baca said.

Authorities say there were 20 murders among more than 80 shootings documented during the gang’s rampage in the hardscrabble Florence-Firestone neighborhood, exceptional even in an area where gang violence has been commonplace for decades. They don’t specify the time frame or how many of the killings were racial.

Los Angeles has struggled with gang violence for years, especially during the wars in the late 1980s and early ’90s between the Crips and the Bloods — both black gangs. Latino gangs have gained influence since then as the Hispanic population surged.

  1. IBN ABDUL HAQQ says:

    O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.(Quran)

    As salaamu alaikum this brown black racism is not new.racism — and anti-black racism in particular — is a pervasive and historically entrenched reality of life in Latin America and the Caribbean. More than 90% of the approximately 10 million enslaved Africans brought to the Americas were taken to Latin America and the Caribbean (by the French, Spanish and British, primarily), whereas only 4.6% were brought to the United States. By 1793, colonial Mexico had a population of 370,000 Africans (and descendants of Africans) — the largest concentration in all of Spanish America.

    The legacy of the slave period in Latin America and the Caribbean is similar to that in the United States: Having lighter skin and European features increases the chances of socioeconomic opportunity, while having darker skin and African features severely limits social mobility.

    White supremacy is deeply ingrained in Latin America and continues into the present. In Mexico, for instance, citizens of African descent (who are estimated to make up 1% of the population) report that they regularly experience racial harassment at the hands of local and state police, according to recent studies by Antonieta Gimeno, then of Mount Holyoke College, and Sagrario Cruz-Carretero of the University of Veracruz.

    Mexican public discourse reflects the hostility toward blackness; consider such common phrases as “getting black” to denote getting angry, and “a supper of blacks” to describe a riotous gathering of people. Similarly, the word “black” is often used to mean “ugly.” It is not surprising that Mexicans who have been surveyed indicate a disinclination to marry darker-skinned partners, as reported in a 2001 study by Bobby Vaughn, an anthropology professor at Notre Dame de Namur University.

    For those who think racial politics are endemic only to the U.S., here is an example of the Mexican race card.Anti-black sentiment also manifests itself in Mexican politics. During the 2001 elections, for instance, Lazaro Cardenas, a candidate for governor of the state of Michoacan, is believed to have lost substantial support among voters for having an Afro Cuban wife.

    Even though Cardenas had great name recognition (as the grandson of Mexico’s most popular president), he only won by 5 percentage points — largely because of the anti-black platform of his opponent, Alfredo Anaya, who said that “there is a great feeling that we want to be governed by our own race, by our own people.”

    Understanding this dynamic, it should not be surprising that migrants from Mexico and other areas of Latin America and the Caribbean arrive in the U.S. carrying the baggage of racism. Nor that this facet of Latino culture is in turn transmitted, to some degree, to younger generations along with all other manifestations of the culture.

    In Mexican culture being white is the best you can be and being black is the worst you can be.Mexico’s elites are much whiter looking than its working class. At 6’5″ tall, ex President Vicente Fox stands roughly a head taller than the average Mexican man. Fox’s paternal grandfather was an Irish-American born in Cincinnati.

    I am not trying to paint all Mexicans with this broad brush of racism, but the pathology is the same all over the world. White is not just a skin color, but as the late Al Hajj Malik Shabazz, pointed out it means Boss.As Muslims we recognize Satan as the chief designer, but we must deal with reality not wishful thinking.

    In Columbia, and other Latin American countries there are enclaves were blacks are at the bottom rung of the society.Have we forgotten about the wholescale genocide that took place aganist blacks in Argentinia.I comend Hugo Chavez for taking on this problem in Venezuela,even though it is still a long way to go.In the Domician Republic Hatian blacks who work there to earn a living are victimized and tortured by there bosses. Racism is embedded in Latin and spanish socities.Ibn Abdul Haqq your commentary was right on the mark.
