Unity emerges in a time of protracted pigmentary and political polarization. This post isn’t intended to tear down liberals nor build up conservatives. My coalition is not partisan and not limited by ideology. I’m highlighting the good that happens after consensus is reached:
Let the record reflect and the herald angels sing that WGSO host Jeff Crouere, of AM 990 in New Orleans, was the ONLY local media outlet to cover New Orleans Police Department ( NOPD ) 5th Districts clear message that my Black life doesn’t matter, after a death threat Wednesday by a crazed person I’ve repeatedly emailed their commander about- a photo and where suspect stays, included.
In the name of not being able to tell good guys from bad, classic bigotry of low expectations, and ignoring safety advocates from urban areas, the NOPD 5th District commander offered yet another reminder why liberal-led police departments are public safety failures.
So let the irony sink in that the only media outlet in the real life Gotham City which is progressive New Orleans that thought my safety creating Black life mattered is Jeff Crouere’s Ringside Politics With a Punch radio show.
How’s that for a Black History Month moment?
Please listen to the exclusive interview:
#CapBlackRLSH, Real Life Superhero for Folks Feeling Like Zeroes, was created in 2008, by Nadra Enzi.
It is superhero inspired safety advocacy ( SISA ), not escapist fantasy. There’s nothing wrong with fantasy but everything right in living a life fantastic by creating safety with like minds; sharing supply with the homeless and promoting self development! 🙂
Special inspiration is drawn from old school pulp novel heroes like Doc Savage; film noir detectives and old school comic book mystery men.

There is a policing presumption, conscious in some; not so in others; that Black citizens should accept having our safety concerns ignored or ritually explained away as insignificant. I’ve body slammed this attitude for decades as a safety advocate who happens to be Black and living in urban areas held hostage by crime.
This concern, being Black and actually wanting police to arrest suspects, especially runs afoul of the current narrative that any enforcement action is akin to latter day slave patrols on a plantation or 21st century versions of the Emmett Till lynching.
Black Lives Matter and compliant government leaders, unintentionally or otherwise, have essentially reduced many municipal departments to becoming spectators of the violence and disorder ironically making inner cities free fire zones for homegrown goons and gangs, not invading insurgents from distant suburbs and Alt Right groups. Conversely, I understand historic concerns regarding officers criminalizing Black citizens for simply venturing outside their homes. As a Generation X brother, I experienced Jim Crow influenced policing in my southeast Georgia hometown. I also experienced the destruction of stable Black communities when the Crack Cocaine Era began.
However, crisis level crime and disorder in the Post Crack Cocaine Era Black community place a strategic premium on Black voices who oppose it. Otherwise, as I always warn and frankly welcome, military solutions ( long term National Guard deployment ) become the only solutions.
Against this dire backdrop, police executives and officers who dismiss concerns and evidence of Black safety advocates and concerned citizens doom not just these people to severe absence of basic safety, but also endanger officers working in these communities. When it’s common knowledge that complaints are ignored and calls for service go unanswered, career criminals control those areas-period. And areas career criminals control aren’t idyllic AfroFuturist oasis like Wakanda in the recent Black Panther movie. Far from it.
Second class safety, where police departments ignore or downgrade urban calls for service, isn’t safe at all… for these communities and cops alike.
Safety creating Black Lives matter, too.

Podcast: Jeff Crouere’s Interview with #CapBlackRLSH Why the #NOPD 5th District Doesn’t Think His Safety Creating Black Life Matters
Tune in today at 9am Central on Ringside Politics with a Punch, with host Jeff Crouere on AM 990 WGSO.
#CapBlackRLSH discusses why his safety creating Black life doesn’t matter to the NOPD 5th Distinct; urban self defense against predators AND politicians and why he no longer publicly supports this impotent, NON policing, police department.

A crazed young man who threatened my life last year at my job did so again. The Nrw Orleans Police Department ( NOPD ) 5th District was called by the building manager and of course they didn’t show up- even after another co-worker called too.
I have identified where this powderkeg of a public safety threat sleeps ( on the sidewalk of the Family Dollar where I shop, on Franklin Ave ). The 5th District Commander has this information but as expected, has done nothing.
He’s being allowed to run loose and will harm someone- a totally avoidable tragedy if this District had done its job.
Therefore, I state the following: if this crazed young man approaches me again in the same loud, threatening manner, I will use DEADLY force to defend myself.
My productive Black life doesn’t matter to the NOPD 5th District, but it does to me!
