Demanding Justice and Accountability in Mexico
We cannot ignore the pain of the recent kidnapping and killing of four African Americans, two of whom were killed by these vile criminals. Add to this the indifference and cooperation of the Mexican government, which allows these cartels to operate freely. CNN recently reported that the victims are being held hostage in Tamaulipas, the northeastern Mexican state notorious for cartel violence and corruption. The victims were all from Texas and were abducted while traveling to Mexico to attend a funeral. The case is under investigation by the Mexican government, but it is unclear whether justice will be served.
The Mexican government has long been associated with corruption and drug cartels, which is a scary fact. It is impossible for law enforcement to take action against the cartel because the cartel has infiltrated all levels of government, from local police departments to high-ranking politicians. As a result of a culture of impunity, cartels can operate without worrying about the consequences. Ironically, some Mexican Americans welcome the deaths of the victims. This is a reprehensible act of racism and hatred that must be condemned in the strongest possible terms. It is a reminder of the prejudices still prevalent in our culture and the urgent need to take more aggressive action to combat them.
As a society, we must pressure the Mexican government to take aggressive action to fight corruption and destroy the drug cartels. While we demand justice for the dead, we must also stand in solidarity with the families of the dead. The senseless bloodshed and corruption that has plagued Mexico for far too long must end.
We must also ask the question where is Black Lives Matter in this situation. The murders were nothing short of racism. In recent days the BLM organization has been very quiet on this issue. 4 innocent black Americans are kidnapped, tortured, and murdered and there are no marches? No vigils in front of the Mexican consulate? Demanding Mexican American Politicians take a stand against their motherland? What the actual fuck!
The kidnapping and murder of four Black Americans by a Mexican drug cartel is a tragedy that must not be forgotten. We must condemn the actions of the cartels and demand accountability from the Mexican government. We must also stand with the families of the victims and call for justice. It is time to put an end to the violence and corruption that have plagued Mexico for far too long. In short Trump was right BUILD THE FUCKING WALL!
