On July 6, 2020, African-American Nathan Wallace, on the sidewalk in front of his home in southside Chicago, did an interview. The day before, his 7-year-old son was killed playing in the front yard by a local gang gun fight.

Wallace asked the question, "Where is the outrage? Where is BLM?" Nathan's sister made the statement, "We talk about black lives matter, but at the end of the day we're killing each other off, we're killing our babies."

So why is there no outrage or protests in southside Chicago by Black Lives Matter? Why is it when BLM stage a so-called peaceful protest march, when it turns dark, looting and arson take place? Why is it BLM lets the Antifa chaos terrorism group in their ranks?

I recall civil rights marches and protests back in the 1960s under the leadership of Martin Luther King Jr. He did those civil rights protests from 1955 to 1968 and gained the victory after a long, hard struggle. I recall the news media coverage of that struggle. At no time was there any looting or arson under his leadership. So BLM, show some outrage, put your money where your mouth is, get to southside Chicago and stand between the gangs and the kids. Their lives matter.

Good question, James. Well said.

Well. a suspect has been charged with the murder, first off. The cop who killed Breonna Taylor, meanwhile, is vacationing. Mighty white of you.
