If we don’t accurately diagnose the problem, the chances of solving it are VERY slim. And Stephen A. Smith is telling us the truth.
Lamenting the high number of shootings in Chicago over the long Memorial Day Weekend, Smith had a question for the black community: “When are we going to look at ourselves when it comes to black people being killed in the streets of America?”
… When will the black community see that it is killing itself on our nation’s streets and take responsibility for it in order to stop it? That’s an excellent question, and as a black man in the media, Smith is extremely brave to ask it. “Let me tell you something,” Smith concluded. “Nothing else matters if we’re dead. Nothing else matters if we’re killing each other.”
