Black folks in this brief post I will use the terms ‘gangs’ and ‘sects’ interchangeably. From my perspectives sect is a word which conjures up many different emotions, opinions, and perspectives; for me a sect is a group of Black people who share a particular set of political, gang, or religious beliefs.
These sects believe their particular sect’s interests is greater than the overall interests and struggle of Black people resulting in narrow-minded partisanship which is ‘divisive’ preventing operational unity; in the case of Black ‘gang’ sects this division is often hostile leading to a constant cycle of violence and murders.
Where are all the Black ‘gangsters’ when it comes to defending the hood from racist attacks and murders like the recent killing of Ahmaud Arbery? When are all these Blacks sects of all kinds going to come together to ‘bang’ on racial oppression?
