More Death, More Silence

I watch the news as often as possible, and I think I know what’s going on. I hear about little girls kidnapped (lets be honest- we mostly hear about the white ones…), we hear about the war, about the econonmy, about smoking laws, gay rights, etc. which of course are always topics up for discussion because they are important within our society BUT RARELY do I hear about the many deaths within black communities, about the HIV/AIDS epidemic, about the fight for a change in gun laws… this is what’s killing our communities.. the poor communities.. the “lower-class”…
