For the past 22 years, I, along with a few others, have been sounding the alarm: The Mexican Mafia and their affiliated gangs have declared an all-out war on black Americans!
In Compton, Calif., a mother and her three children were recently intimidated by a group of Hispanic gang members. The intimidation reached a boiling point when four Hispanic men in a black SUV pulled up and began harassing a male family friend, calling him a “nigger” and saying black people were barred from the neighborhood. According to reports, they jumped out, drew a gun on the family friend and beat him with metal pipes. It was just the beginning of what detectives said was a campaign to force the black family to leave.
According to the Los Angeles Times, similar attacks have taken place in Harbor Gateway, Highland Park, Pacoima, San Bernardino, Canoga Park and Wilmington, among other places over the last decade.
Sheriff’s detectives arrested two alleged members of the Compton Varrio 155 gang. “This family has no gang ties whatsoever,” Sheriff Department Lt. Richard Westin said. “They are complete innocent victims here.”
Compton, with a population of about 97,000, was predominantly black for many years. It is now 65 percent Latino and 33 percent black. As the black population ages, Hispanics are moving into black neighborhoods and in some cases attacking them and driving them out.
Federal authorities have alleged in several indictments over the last decade that the Mexican Mafia prison gang has ordered street gangs under its control to attack blacks. Leaders of the Azusa 13 gang were recently sentenced to lengthy prison terms for leading a policy of attacking black residents and expelling them from the town.
A few years back my organization held a town-hall meeting on black and Hispanic relations featuring LAPD commanders and members of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, as well as concerned citizens. A high-ranking sheriff told the crowd that in Los Angeles the Mexican Mafia and their affiliates are conducting an outright war against black citizens.
One gruesome case was the murder of 17-year-old high school football star Jamiel Shaw. Shaw was shot and killed in 2008 – execution style – by 23-year-old Pedro Espinoza, a member of the notorious 18th Street Gang. Espinoza is an illegal alien who had been released from jail just hours before the shooting. Last fall, a Los Angeles jury found Espinoza guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced him to death.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the Shaw family didn’t receive any public support from black Democratic elected officials!
According to state demographers, California’s Hispanic population will equal that of whites within six months and exceed it by early next year. Population projections released on Jan. 31 by the state Department of Finance show that Hispanics will become the dominant ethnic group in California for the first time.
Had this been a white racist group intimidating and attacking an innocent black family, hypocrites like the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the Congressional Black Caucus would be marching and calling for federal troops.
But you won’t hear black activists, black media, President Obama, Democratic congresswomen like Rep. Karen Bass (who represents Compton) or Rep. Maxine Waters speak out on this crisis. Why? Because their loyalty is to the Democratic Party, which has a vested interest in empowering left-wing interest groups – who help fund their campaigns and encourage them to hand out free goodies to their constituents.
The Democrats and leftist black leaders have lied and convinced blacks that there needs to be “unity” between “black and brown” to take power away from whites. They never discuss the murders, loss of jobs and loss of entire neighborhoods as a result of illegal immigration.
I’ve talked with countless blacks in California who feel like third-class citizens. In fact, according to studies, middle and working-class blacks are on the verge of disappearing altogether from some neighborhoods. Blacks are leaving California seeking employment, fleeing crime and overcrowded public schools and migrating back to the South.
If black Americans don’t wake up and realize what’s being done to them by this administration and their so-called black leaders, they could be displaced and become a permanent underclass in a nation that their forefathers helped build.
Now that we’re on the fast track to amnesty, black Americans will be targeted even more. The Democrats will never hold up their end of the bargain on securing the borders. Barack Obama and the Democrats have gotten all that they need from blacks. But most blacks don’t realize that Democrats now see them as expendable. The party doesn’t care about people; they only care about voting blocs.
If an amnesty plan should pass, it will be the nail in the coffin for black Americans. It will only embolden the Mexican Mafia and their predatory street gangs to escalate the war on black citizens. How unfortunate that the policies that are promoting the demise of black America (amnesty, unrestricted abortions, joblessness and gay marriage) are being deliberately implemented by the first black president!
