This Is Us Killing Us

"My Beloved Community, I truly understand the history of African American people in this country. But we have come to a point in our community where this is no conspiracy by Outsiders doing this to us. This is us killing us. This is mostly African Americans killing African Americans. This is some family member of mine or yours killing some family member of yours or mine. And we, as a community, have to stop it now. Nobody’s coming to save us. We have to stand up for ourselves and stand up now."

KWAME KILPATRICK, Bürgermeister von Detroit, in der State of the City Address.
