“INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS.”
How much longer do too many people continue with an insanity mindset instead of quickly changing course and adopting a collective and proven common sense approach to reduce anti-Black racism and youth gangs and gun violence? And what is the cost of not abandoning the insanity mindset? Two completely preventable crises. Anti-Black racism and youth gangs and gun violence is at an all time high in 2020 while there are too many people out there who believes that the insanity approach is the solution to reduce it. We are running out of time to make accurate and collective decisions to reduce anti-Black racism and youth gangs and gun violence. For decades, the solutions that too many people have employed, does not accurately counteract our current challenges and for the rest of us who knows better, that fact is alarming. For decades, we are losing the fight to reduce anti-Black racism and youth gangs and gun violence. So what do we do? How do we appeal to these misguided people? There are always a price to pay when the wrong decisions are made.
“HOW DO YOU RESPOND WHEN FACED WITH TWO CRISES AND YOU ARE CAPABLE OF TAKING ACTION?”
1) A never before worldwide anti-racism pandemic.
2) Gun violence at a level like never before.
Do you take the appropriate action or do you have no history of regularly and equally supporting local and fully controlled Black based causes and make racist excuses why you will not? Gun violence is a result of racist actions by engaging in social and economic exclusion, violence which elevates to murders by bad police officers and recently hanging nooses at co-workers jobs. Boycotting competent local Black based causes, that are controlled by Blacks and produces a history of progressive results to address these growing matters are one of the most popular examples of racism. Do you know why major corporations and governments are quickly speaking up for their support of the Black community, making historic donations and providing all kinds of assistance? Because they get it. What about you? Who really are you? Are you mathematically fair and reasonable? Can you be trusted this time? Are you our ally? The walls needs to be removed if you ever want to gain trust with the Black community. The us against them mentality is no longer tolerated even by non Blacks. It's time to start getting along. We must eradicate racism and urban poverty because it has for centuries and still is murdering innocent people for the financial gain of others. The practice of racism is only done by predators. The fact is, predators never treats their prey fairly. And finally, proclaiming you have a Black friend or in a romantic relationship with a Black person and have no history of generously financially supporting a local Black based cause(s) or you think you do not need to generously financially support a local Black based cause(s) is unacceptable. People are not buying that behavior. So for all those closet racists who uses Black people to cover up their racist mindset, we are teaching Blacks to identity the wolves in sheep's clothing because our team encounters them every day. It is way overdue to identify the wolves, expose them and distance ourselves from them.
HERE'S HOW TO RESPOND TO THESE TWO CRISES.
An equal and regular contribution that you religiously contribute to your cause(s) of choice is required to begin closure to youth gangs and gun violence, urban poverty and anti-Black racism. The economic deficit must be paid first in order to validate that "all lives matter".
"Gun violence in Toronto and its surrounding areas is at a never before crisis level in the summer of 2020 and we are now on dangerous ground."
Patronize our partners that are standing with Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns as we work together to reduce urban poverty and youth gangs and gun violence.
“SYSTEMATIC RACISM RESULTS IN OUR RISING YOUTH GANGS AND ILLEGAL GUN VIOLENCE CRISIS.”
On May 25, 2020, yet another Black person was a victim of death by the hands of the police. That person was George Floyd but this time, the world had seen with their eyes his murder. The world had enough. And ever since, there has been daily worldwide protests and demands for the dismantling of the police system, dismantling of white supremacy, the removal of racist statues and more. This reaction to a murder of a Black person is different because this time, very wealthy people, major corporations and professional sports organizations has issued statements making it clear they stand with the Black community and that they stand with Back lives matter. But since the murder of George Floyd, the murder of mainly Black males by mainly the police still continues and there are Black males who were hung from trees and lynched across the U.SA. still continues. And what about the numerous murders by the police that was never captured on camera ever since white supremacists laid their eyes on Africans? We have been advocating for equal rights since 2010, well before Black lives matter was even thought of. Times has certainly changed. We have started to form partnerships with individuals and organizations and we would urge you to support these organizations that are standing against anti-Black racism. We have just one question, where were these organizations before? Patronize our anti-Black racism partners and buy our wrist bracelets to fund the creation of 10,000 more wealth gap closing employment opportunities for at-risk youth and the communities they live in in order to close the wealth gap and reduce youth gangs and gun violence and urban poverty.

About the two images on this webpage: The founder and his team were nearby “Taste of the Danforth” 2018 where Toronto mayor John Tory stopped by to thank him and his organization, Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns, and on many occasions in the past, for their advocacy efforts. Every time he sees the team, he stops by to thank them and at least one of those times they were on live T.V.. They have been in conversations for years, mainly by text message. There are 15 local based at-risk youth gangs and anti-gun violence organizations and mayor John Tory has only done photo ops with Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns. He knows that Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns is number one, by far, for several reasons. It should be noted that the founder and the mayor does not agree on all matters concerning youth gangs and gun violence. They both agree that there is a growing gun violence problem and there must be a dramatic reduction of youth gangs and gun violence. They are not on the same page when it relates to all the effective solutions on how to reduce the growing violence problem. See our growing portfolio of endorsements by the rich, powerful and famous here.
Currently there is a 20% youth unemployment rate. Impoverished areas experience postal code racism where employers blacklist youth living in targeted areas. Are you willing to make a reasonable purchase of these items to help fund the creating youth jobs campaign? Buy here!

There are over 100 unique items to buy from the ever-growing product line. Since 2010, Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns’ primary concern has been the illegal gun activity and owners who are responsible for the escalating gun violence. The illegal gun activity and ownership makes life tougher for legal and law-abiding gun owners. Historically, legal gun owners have never been the problem for the escalating gun violence. Buyers of Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns items include legal gun owners who are hunters and collectors. Can you ever recall a news story where a legal gun owner was responsible for a mass shooting? Click here to read about the purpose for the current generation of the money. Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns has recently become the # 1 initiative, by far, in North America (and possibly the world) striving to reduce youth gangs and gun violence. Read here. And this fact is true because people, from all walks of life, have placed their ongoing trust and growing financial support in the vision and guidance of Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns since 2010. One of the reasons that Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns is the leading initiative for reducing youth gangs and gun violence, is that social and economic equality must be sought for everyone. If there is going to be a conversation and action taken to reduce gun violence, all those who are affected must be acknowledged and there must be a call for action. The solution designed by Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns is one that can be implemented anywhere in the world, starting in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. History is in the making!
WE NEED TO FACE THE FACTS IN 2018!
If you think there should be no concern for rising gangs and gun violence, you should watch this video where Minister of Public Safety, Ralph Goodale, states $327 million will be allocated to combat the problem. A spike in gun and gang violence in Canada has experts worried. Read here. “More efforts needed to prevent young people from turning to gangs, say police.” Read here. CP24 reported on TV after the summit in Ottawa that the upward swing in gangs and gun violence activity is “disturbing.” Read a related CP24 article here. CBC, read here. Globe and Mail, read here. Watch the Ottawa guns and gang violence submit held on Monday, March 7, 2018 here.
The massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018 can happen again and again anywhere on this planet where guns are accessible by criminals and people who apparently have mental health issues. So why can't a mass murder take place in Canada, too? You may say, “That's not possible.”. The most recent mass shooting was at Sainte-Foy Mosque on January 29, 2017 in Quebec, Canada. And prior to that incident, a seventeen-year-old male shot up a home and school in northern Saskatchewan on January 25, 2016. We must take proactive steps in order to reduce these tragedies from occurring again.
Other organizations have been, and are, stating that we must invest in prevention and our youth. See here.
March 20, 2018 - Ontario police lay charges in five investigations into social media threats. See here.
March 24, 2018 - For those who say there is no gun violence in the G.T.A., just try to tell that to the approximately 600 people who braved the cold and marched from Nathan Phillips Square to Queen's Park today as marches, demonstrations and benefit concerts are being held all around the world. See here.
PREDICTION FOR 2019
With the announcement in December 2018 by the Ontario Ford government to discontinue the $25 million per year funding for after school programs and for all practical purposes, the elimination of the anti-racism directorate, a standalone initiative that was put in place to eliminate systemic racism in government polices, decisions and systems and the elimination of free tuition in January 2019 for low-income students, the chances for an increase in homicides over the record homicides in 2018 is likely. In addition, the pipeline to jails will widen. Who will these changes effect the most? The Black community. The same Black community that premier Doug Ford stated who loves him and he loves the Black community. Did he consider these facts before he decided to make these changes? Does he really care? His solution to reduce youth gangs and gun violence is to ramp up the funding for the police budget. How about investing in the underprivileged communities to reduce the rise of youth gangs and gun violence? A growing number of the public has been voicing on T.V. that the G.T.A. is not safe. Politicians, the police and specialists in the field are no longer saying that the G.T.A. is safe. This year, we launched the annual year ahead prediction campaign to collect intelligence starting from our base of supporters located mainly in the Toronto financial district, upscale areas and then beyond. IT'S TIME FOR US TO RING THE WARNING BELL!
WE ALL HAVE A ROLE TO PLAY TO REDUCE
YOUTH GANGS AND ILLEGAL GUN VIOLENCE.
YOUTH GANGS AND ILLEGAL GUN VIOLENCE.
We need to incite and keep the conversation going if we ever hope to reduce escalating youth gangs and gun violence. Ask any police officer in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and he or she will tell you that there is an average of six shootings every day. The media only has enough time to report on the shootings people would find most important. What must be understood by all is that “youth gangs and illegal gun violence affects everyone”. A society where equality in all areas of life must be established, vigorously protected, and maintained. And then we must commit to allocating the proportionate amount of ongoing money and resources to bring those left behind up to par with society; those who have experienced generations of systematic social and economic exclusion in our local community. “Social and economic exclusion leads to poverty and poverty leads to avoidable crimes.” A lifetime of living in bankruptcy, particularly specific races in our local community, is nothing less than inhumane. It is high time we took peaceful and appropriate action for equality by leveling out the social and economic playing field so that everyone who chooses to live, at the very least, a decent life without any barriers, can do so. Everyone in our local community deserves a fair shot at a fulfilling life. We must recognize that there are races of people in our local community who are systematically left behind even now, even after hundreds of years. How can we honestly say that we are friends with them if we are not taking the appropriate and proportionate action to make right these wrongs?
