Chicago Bulletin (Newspaper) - July 2, 1969, Chicago, Illinois Scenes Black gangs seek softer stroke its Little wonder Many youngsters have Little respect for their elders when you Stop to think How Little we As elders Are willing to fore go to make Progress. It s Little wonder that Young people tend to think of anyone Over thirty As out of it not Only Are elders not willing to address themselves to that which they believe but they even tend to make poor excuses and faulty rationalizations for behaviour by others which they really dislike and know to be wrong. There is hardly a Day that dawns that some adult sup Posedly responsible person does not say to me Isnit it awful what the world has come to and especially the teenagers a following such an opening remark there is usually a Long tirade about some new despicable act committed under the Guise of youth and Black Progress. And with the slightest encouragement this same person will Point to his own childhood teachings and disciplines. The Point is there is hardly a person Over thirty five and a Parent who agrees with the behavioural patterns followed by a Small minority of today a youngsters and yet these same adults stand by with their fingers in their ears and refuse to take a hand in what is happening right in their own neighbourhoods every Day. And even worse they will not even support someone who is concerned enough to take action. Lee Marks pens soul searching feature the epitaph.

Where did he spearhead this year find these guns in a White funded White led sess new lab Ltd of d Church right smack dab in the Middle of a Black 0 e a ghetto. And who led the screams of anguish against this dastardly act the same White Clergyman who had granted Asylum to the gang members. Now if this action by gangs in amassing guns in a conspiratorial fashion and sanctioned by a White minister is not enough of an indictment of both the gang and the minister then i ask that you not just read the newspapers but attend some of the court hearings where these same gang members openly and brazenly admit their parts in acts of death against other Black boys. The fact that White boys commit crime is no justification for Black boys doing the same. And there s not a White Community in the world where a Black minister is using Federal funds to organize White boys in a further life of crime. Crime is not a Way of life among Black people it never has been. Shore or. A Cdr Lionel Newsome class �?T31 and new president of Johnson c.

Buckney a p lip i a biggest fault is that he is a Thorn in a master plan u11 of Whites to continue the killings in the Black j a a Community by Blacks. What is Community control a it i i Picq i when unarmed citizens cannot walk the streets without fear of their lives who is a Parent to turn Al cd til cd Iti m to when his son is beaten shot stabbed and killed by organized gangs How Many times have you seen White police officers drive past Black crime and ignore it they done to care the same boys who have Learned from White Media the ways and Means to kill in a True Gangland style a have the guts to do this to Whites. Whites stand for it there would be a thousand Edward Buckney Myca delegates looking Over Buckney is a Man and As such is not inf Al liable but b is a devote All that is Black and right Buckney and sincere police officer trying to build a Black Community such As that which Whites already enjoy. I have yet to hear a non organized individual or group complain about Buckney a efforts Only those who prey upon others Are crying of injustice. I say if we Are to have Community control then it must be taken out of the hands of the so called phoney Liberal Whites who have not yet Felt the bitter touch of the death of a loved one through a gang action. If commissioner Conlisk is to probe anyone let him probe the criminal element of the gangs. The mafia does no to like j.
