It was back on March 29th when I wrote about young Mr Vantorious Krishad Dixon being gunned down on the street outside a home where a party was being thrown in Newnan. This was one of many shootings over a short period of time here.
Last night the Newnan Times Herald reported another shooting in Newnan. This time over on W. Washington. A drive by shooting in a residential area where 3 people were seriously injured. One victim, a woman laying in bed. Two others sitting on the front porch. All shot by thugs driving by the house.
The police have not yet determined a connection between the victims and shooters, but it will likely be gang or drug related. That’s just my theory. I don’t think I’ve been wrong yet, at least not with the last few shootings. These shootings in my home town are becoming more frequent and quite frankly, I’m getting a little used to it.
Those so-called black leaders here won’t tell you about the culture of violence, and you most certainly won’t hear any public officials identify the culture that’s responsible for the shootings. That would be raaaaacist. I have a family and children here and I will not sit quietly while a culture of thugs tries to disrupt my beautiful city.
The good folks of Newnan and Coweta County need to be vocal and stay on top of whats going on here. There is a culture of violence growing in our communities and it needs to be stopped now or we will soon be known as the other Atlanta.
It was just before Thanksgiving 2013 when I moved my wife and kids into our new home located in beautiful Newnan, Georgia, nick named, “The City of Homes.” Newnan is an economically thriving city with great job opportunities and a wonderful place to raise your kids.
We moved here to get away from the violent city of Atlanta shortly after my own wife was the victim of a mob of blacks inside a Kroger grocery store. Had it not been for the quick actions of the store manager and another employee my wife may have been another statistic.
Of course as with all cities, especially the ones that are growing as fast as Newnan, comes with an added attraction. It was Neal Boortz who first coin the phrase, “culture of violence,” in accurately describing the inner city violence caused primarily by young black thugs.
Race has nothing to do with the increasing violence in cities like Chicago, New Jersey and Atlanta or even Newnan. It is all about the thug mentality being bred into the young minds of children, primarily young black males without a father figure in the home.
Neal Boortz said, “This is about culture. It’s about the predatory violence that pretty much forms the basis for young urban black culture. Can you argue, for instance, that violence is not at the core of the rap music that permeates urban black culture. There is a reason why young black males commit violent crimes far and away out of their percentage of our population, and it damned sure isn’t poverty. When you don’t have enough to eat you don’t kill someone for their necklace or tennis shoes.
There is nothing in the DNA that causes a young black male to adopt a warrior attitude toward pretty much everyone he encounters. There is nothing in the DNA that causes a black teenager to shoot a baby in the head. This is learned behavior, not inherent behavior. Sooner or later we’re going to have to admit that black urban culture in America is violent and dangerous, and that it has nothing to do with race.”
Thank God someone out there besides me has the guts to identify the real problem. Every excuse imaginable has been given for reasons why these punks continue to hurt and kill. “Oh it’s because of poverty.” Bullshit! How about having a respectable employed father in the house. Maybe get an education and stop listening to your thug friends when they say being educated is being white.
It’s no secret that Rap music lyrics encourage these young black thugs to rob and kill because it’s cool. How many times have you seen a news report where an expensive car or SUV was found on the side of a road full of bullet holes with a dead black guy slumped over the steering wheel? Do you remember your first thought? “It was probably a rapper.” It’s an easy bet you can take to the bank.
I know that when we have a culture with no father figure or family structure these inner city kids wander into the streets looking for someone to bond with. It’s easy pickins for the older gang leaders to indoctrinate young lonely children. You have young black kids looking to gang bangers to be their role models and being part of a family structure. Gangs come in all races, but I’m talking about an urban nightmare right now that primarily affects a certain culture in our inner cities. Look at the statistics before you start calling me a racist. Oh, and it would help if you learned the true definition of the word racist before you toss it around every time you get pissed at a white person. It doesn’t help you at all when you use words that you can’t define. It makes you sound ignorant and nobody takes you seriously. Words have meaning.
Why doesn’t someone in the black community speak out about the obvious? Where are all the so-called black leaders, and Hollywood celebrities at while this crisis is building? They seem to be very quick to judge people like George Zimmerman but what about when the obvious occurs? Not a word. Total silence on the matter.
I won’t be holding back, and I will not let the politically correct police get in my way. It’s high time this subject came out of the hoodie closet. I’ll take the abuse that I know is going to come. It will be nothing new to me. Like others before me I’ve been called a racist. I am not. I just happen to be a white guy that speaks the cold hard truth, and nothing you say or do will stop me.
Just because I moved away from the culture of predatory violence in downtown Atlanta back in November, no way will I stop talking about it here in Newnan. I’m a resident of this wonderful city now and I have no plans on sitting quietly while a culture of violent predators kill each other and innocent bystanders.
I know what I’m talking about. After all, I did spend several years working inside some of Atlanta’s most dangerous housing projects chasing crack dealers and young thugs. Every one of them a product of their violent culture.
Until the black community in Newnan decides to recognize and fight to end the growing culture of violence here, it will only grow into a much worse issue. It’s only a matter of time before the violence spreads out into neighboring communities. It needs to stop, and it needs to stop now. -JRoycroft
