REPORT CARD: WCW CLASH OF THE CHAMPIONS XIX 6-22-1992
This show was actually taped on June 16, before Beach Blast, but aired two days after Beach Blast. This show is also the full first round of the NWA world tag team championship tournament, because Watts felt that the NWA name still had some value, which it didn’t.
So nobody is going to talk about how today, July 25, 2016. Dr. Dre, gets cuffed and patted down at his own home, because a white motorist lied on Dr. Dre saying he had a gun on him.
The story: Dr. Dre tries to pull up to his home and someone on a motorcycle was blocking his drive way. Dr. Dre tells the man to get out of the way. The man does, but started yelling and cursing at dr. Dre and even started saying racist things like “ Here comes another black guy with a gun”. So Dr. Dre pulls out his phone and stated recording the man saying all of this stuff about him.
The white man calls the police on Dr. Dre, as Dr. Dre pulls up into his house. He told the cops Dr. Dre had a gun on him.They show up, cuff him and patted him down. The cops found that he did not have a gun.
And People wonder why we call rappers like A$AP Rocky stupid for saying they don’t speak out against things like this happening to black people because they have some success on their hands so they aren’t a part of that kind of black community anymore. “They don’t live that life”
Well here you go, The richest rapper right now and one of the most successful, Asap rocky is nowhere near this kind of success, and he still has to deal with shit like this. And there are people who actually think A$AP was saying “truth” when he said that mess.
Thats stupid as hell, nobody is inevitable. All you have to do is be black.
In 1992, after the Rodney King beating, OGs from the Crips and Bloods in the Watts district of Los Angeles met to end the violence that was happening in their communities. Black people everywhere were angry about the Rodney King verdict and decided it was time to act. Hundreds of Bloods and Crips would meet in a gymnasium and declare a ceasefire against each other. They had realized that the police were the real enemy. The gang leaders would also create a sports league for the community. Hundreds of black men and women from the bloods and Crips no longer looked at each other as enemies. They partied together and played on sports teams together. The peace Treaty ended over 30 years of gang violence and the homicide rate dropped 44%. After the Watts treaty, several Latino gangs and many more black gangs all over California began to adopt a similar peace treaties. The Watts treaty lasted for several years before the LA police would infiltrate the movement and cause chaos. This is Black History that they do not teach in schools. This is what they will never tell you about black gangs. The LA Gang Truce was a symbol of hope to the black community and today it remains that. We do not need white people to help us solve any of our problems. We have the potential to be a mighty people. The violence in our communities can stop. All it takes is for dedicated black souls to get together. So the next time you hear about the LA Riots…make sure you remember the LA Gang truce as well.
