Sorry But Niggaz Cant Be Helped!
By: Tommy “Tj” Sotomayor

I do not see why people still believe that niggaz in America can be saved because they cant!

These two women who it appears were single mothers themselves, didn’t do what a responsible person would do which is leave this war zone, NOPE, they decided to stay their and protest against the savages that they each are producing.

Now I dont know if these women were good parents or not but what I do know is that there is no reason for anyone to be producing children in these communities. The women in essence died doing what they love but where the hell is black lives matter or T.I. or the breakfast Club or D.L. Hughley?

Two Chicago moms who had fought for years to curb gun violence were killed in a drive-by shooting as they protested “at their usual spot,” according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Chantell Grant, 26, and Andrea Stoudemire, 36, volunteers at the nonprofit Mothers Against Senseless Killings, or MASK, were gunned down Friday on a corner near the south Chicago neighborhood of Auburn Gresham as they promoted efforts to end gun violence. The killer, riding in an SUV, escaped.

Members of the anti-violence group have been occupying the corner where Grant and Stoudemire were shot since its founding in 2015. Parents bring their children to the spot and have cookouts, learn to dance and play games.

“For mothers to be killed in a place where mothers go to seek safety and sisterhood, I take that as a personal threat,” MASK founder Tamar Manasseh said at a press conference over the weekend. “Because when you come for one of us, you better believe they came for all of us.”

The group’s goal is to create safer spaces through community building and neighborhood events. MASK was established “as a way to put eyes on the streets, interrupt violence and crime, and teach children to grow up as friends rather than enemies,” the group says on its website.

Two Chicago mothers who worked to end violence and crime in their neighborhood were killed last week in a drive-by shooting.

Chantel Grant, 26, and Andrea Stoudemire, 36, both of whom volunteered with Mothers/Men Against Senseless Killings (MASK), were gunned down in the city’s Auburn Gresham neighborhood, the organization said in a Facebook post.

“For mothers to be killed in a place where mothers go to seek safety and sisterhood, I take that as a personal threat,” MASK founder Tamar Manasseh said at a news conference Sunday.

Just before 10 p.m. Friday, a blue SUV pulled up to the corner, where MASK volunteers often gather, and someone inside opened fire into a crowd, according to the Chicago Police Department.

Grant and Stoudemire were shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the hospital, police said. Two other people were also shot.

A 58-year-old man suffered minor injuries after falling to the ground, and a 30-year-old man walked into the hospital later with a gunshot wound to his arm. He is currently listed in stable condition, police said.

Authorities believe one of the men may have been the intended target in the shooting. No arrests have been made.

“We have no evidence to suggest the women were the intended targets,” police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told NBC News, calling the murders “senseless.”

As of Tuesday, authorities had no suspects and urged anyone with information to contact police.

Manasseh said at Sunday’s news conference that Grant was “a dedicated mother.” Stoudemire, was “somebody who would stick up for other young women in the community, even if she didn’t know them,” she said.

“This is unacceptable,” Manasseh said. “Enough is enough. I’m tired of being scared.”

MASK was founded in 2015 and works to “interrupt violence and crime, and teach children to grow up as friends rather than enemies,” its website states.

There have been more than 1,190 shooting incidents in the city so far this year and almost 1,530 shooting victims, a police spokesperson told NBC.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, at least 48 people were shot within city limits the weekend Grant and Stoudemire were killed.
