How can this be? A shooting at a black church and it isn’t on the national news?
A Shooting At A black Church And You Probably Didn’t Hear About It
At Living Water Baptist Church in High Point, North Carolina, a memorial service was being held for a young man who died in October, no mention of his name or how he died. As the service let out, at least two cars drove by and the passengers opened fire. One man, Frederick Cox Jr., was killed and there were “a few other victims with minor injuries”. No word whether they were hit by gunfire or whether they were hurt in the scramble. According to reports, it happened in broad daylight, 3:30 PM on a Sunday. It is also notable that “High Point Police say person(s) in the crowd returned fire.”. There is virtually no coverage of this story, I saw it on the feed from The Sun, a British paper.
As happens too often, a funeral for one black person leads to a shooting that kills more black people, in this case what appears to be a shoot out between the drive-by crew and the mourners who came to church strapped. Of course we have no word on suspects and no motivation.
This is an all too common event, a black on black shooting at a funeral for a black person. Earlier this year 15 people were shot at a funeral in Chicago. It seems as though the black on black violence can’t even pause to let families bury their dead. Even after the media has unilaterally declared Joe Biden, The Great Healer And Uniter, the President-Elect, nothing has changed in America as blacks keep on shooting each other. If the suspect in the shooting had been White, you can be sure the media would be all over this but black men shooting other blacks in a drive-by just doesn’t interest the media.
Ask yourself why.
