The St. Lawrence Gang in Chicago, who also call themselves “TookaGang/Tookaville,” glorify murder, and not just on video. Young dead men in Chicago nearly total those killed in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq combined.
Their recently released rap video (with explicit lyrics) includes the chorus, “my young nigga’s they gonna murder.”
Why aren’t #BlackLivesMatter protesters helping these young men? Do their lives not matter? Who will help these boys and young men leave a life of violence before they are killed or kill someone else?
