When will we as people of color, stop blaming society as a whole for problems plagueing our communities. I'am talking about both Black and Latino groups which I'am both of. It pains me to write this critical piece, no one likes to put blame on themselves but the reality is we're constantly looking for a scapegoat for our many ills and fail to see the enemy is us. It's us, that has a high incarceration and teen pregnancy rate, compared to other groups. Our young males are only to eager to join up with gangs and thus the cycle continues. Those of us who speak out on the matter are deemed "sellouts". The community will most definately protest police shooting a black or latino, but do and say nothing as we kill each other. We do not like to hear this because it gives ammo to those that we feel are against us. Is racism still alive here in America? Yes, but it's time for us to look in the mirror and see the true enemy.
