The world is violent, which is why I learned to fight, and I mean really fight early in life. I didn’t think at the time I’d really need to use my skills, as my training was more a venting of frustration for things I have cataloged in my books.
However the older I get, the more I understand what that training meant, and why it was such an important element of me becoming who I am. Witnessing the daily violence in the world, particularly black community, I required my sons to learn to fight. I lament the amount of time I spent training, and repeating the process with four boys, three of whom are now men. But seeing the cruel black world that they live in, I am grateful for every lesson, every kick, punch, arm-bar, and so on.
This video showcases that world. It’s an inner city, and a guy goes to buy potato chips. He has no idea this will be his last purchase, as he is confronted by a man who punches him, and knocks him out.
Earlier this year 32-year-old Marques Gaines was at a 7-Eleven in Chicago. While in the store, you can see from the video that Gaines bothers nobody. He has a short conversation with a man before the confrontation outside, and I would surmise that somebody was sizing him up. He likely answered too passively, and it was determined that he was a mark.
He exits the store and is confronted by a black man wearing a hoodie, who appears to start arguing with him. It appears that a 7-Eleven clerk tries to intervene, but eventually walks off. A few moments later, Gaines is cold-cocked, and lands just off the sidewalk.
As Gaines lay unconscious, he is robbed, and eventually killed when a taxi cab runs over him. You’d think the tragedy would end there, but not when there is money to be made on the death of a black man.
The Chicago Tribune reports that Gaines’ family has filed a lawsuit against 7-Eleven:
At a Thursday morning news conference, Gaines’ family members and their attorneys spoke to reporters about details of a recently filed lawsuit, gathering outside the 7-Eleven where Gaines was fatally injured.
Attorney Chris Hurley said the 7-Eleven’s operator knew the area surrounding the store suffered from high street crime and should have had well-trained security that could have prevented the actions that led to Gaines’ death.
It’s 7-Eleven’s fault that a black man knocked Gaines out? It’s 7-Eleven’s fault for putting their store there?
This is the world Liberals don’t want to admit exists, as it is the world created by Liberals.
What could have changed things? Perhaps if the now dead guy had a gun, he would have survived his chip-buying experience. Regardless, one black man is dead at the hands of another. No hoopla, just life in the urban jungle.
