The rate at which hatred is eaten up the existence of humanity is mind-boggling and mind-blowing.
How can someone explain reference the gory incidence of maiming, murdering and shedding of innocent blood that has become a continuous reality of our daily lifes.
Across the length and breadth of the entire world, human lifes are becoming cheap that it cost nothing but a wave and a rage of fury to take it.
Human existence is gradually becoming endangered and going into extinction by human beings itself and it is becoming stylishly acceptable as a way of life globally.
Every nation of the world has been seen and observed to have its portion of these waves of wickedness and madness that has defied any form of reasonable solution.
Domestic violence, insurgency, cult clash, gangsterism, xenophobism, armed banditry, police brutality, armed robbery and all sorts of vices have been a threat to human existence in recent years.
No single day passes bye without news and record of blood shedding and letting across the entire global community.
It is becoming appalling ,disheartening and overwhelming to every sane mind that this level of sheer wickedness should be the present reality of human race.
Sheer wickedness by human to human makes it more worrisome and frustrating.
How can hatred be so deep to the extent that it led to shedding of blood. This really shows that the premium placed on human life and the values placed on human existence is becoming compromised to the extent that human life is being seen as a material that should be sacrificed cheaply on the slaughters’ slab.
The repeated and the recurrent xenophobic attack witnessed in South Africa is gradually becoming a cultural heritage for the South African society. It is becoming a show of might, cruelty and a ritual whereby whenever South African locals who are vampires and thirsty of blood will just scavenge for any available foreigner as prey and sacrificed to their gods.
South African Society seems to be a society that is densely populated with blood sucking psychopaths who are desperate about nothing but the flesh, blood and souls of foreigners who are seen as a burden to their commonwealth.
Though, frantic efforts have been made by the Nigerian Government engaging the South African Government about the recurrent decimal of innocent Nigerians been maimed and killed, it is quite worrisome as the numbers of Nigerians being sacrificed becomes high annually.
Despite the contribution of Nigeria Government and its citizens in nipping in the bud the apartheid era in South Africa. It is appalling that Nigerians are being paid back with their lifes being sacrificed to xenophobic attack.
It is high time Nigeria Government take a decisive action that will nip in the bud the xenophobic attack being directed to Nigerians by South African locals.
Though, a government that cannot protect and preserve that lifes of her citizenry at home front should not be expected to be reasonable in protecting and preserving the lifes of her citizen in diaspora.
Nigerians cannot continue to be subjected to insensitivity, barbarism and inhumanity in the hands of South Africans blood sucking psychopathic demons.
Let’s preserve human lifes.
Let’s protect human sanctity.
Let’s uphold the dignity of every human beings.
Nipsey Hussle Memorial Procession Struck By Violence: Drive-By Leaves 1 Dead, 3 Injured
Los Angeles police are pleading for the “senseless violence” to end after gunfire erupted once again as mourners celebrated the life of the late rapper Nipsey Hussle.
One person is dead and three more injured after a drive-by shooting along Hussle’s 25.5-mile long funeral procession route Thursday evening.
Los Angeles Police Chief Michael Moore confirmed the incident on Twitter writing, “In the midst of this procession we have a multi-4 shooting at 103 St. and Main St.”
Moore revealed the victims are “3 male blacks and 1 female black — ages from 30- 50 years old. Tragically one is deceased.”
Moore says the gunshots came from suspects driving a grey Hyundai.
“We must stop this senseless violence,” Moore pleaded.
The tragic shooting came just hours after Hussle’s emotional memorial at the Staples Center. The celebrated artist died after being shot on March 31 outside of his Marathon Clothing store in Hyde Park.
During the ceremony, Hussle’s longtime love Lauren London, who he shares 2-year-old son Kross with, tearfully paid tribute to the rapper.

“Never would I prepare for something like this so bear with me, all,” the 34-year-old actress told the crowd of 21,000 who had gathered to pay respects to the artist born Ermias Joseph Asghedom.
Beginning her eulogy with a text message she wrote on Jan. 21, London, who was dressed in all white with black sunglasses, read the loving words she put together for her boyfriend of six years.
“Ermias was asleep one morning and I was watching him because I used to love to watch him sleep and I wrote him a text while he was sleeping so when he woke up he would read it,” said London, who also shared a copy of the text message in the funeral’s pamphlet.
“I want you to know I feel real joy in my heart when I’m around you. I feel safe around you. Protected. Like a shield over me when you’re around, I am totally myself when I’m with you,” London had written. “You’ve made me into more of a woman. You’ve given me an opportunity to really love a man,” she continued.
Hussle’s mother Angelique Smith also spoke at length about the love and connection she had with her late son.
Taking the podium during the slain rapper’s public memorial, Smith held back tears as she opened up about her son, their years together and her hope for the South Los Angeles community he left behind.
“I have perfect peace. I am happy. I am complete. I am strong. And if I can feel this way, you can, too,” she told the thousands of mourners. After calling Hussle’s father Dawit Asghedom to the stage, she talked of finding comfort and guidance in her spirituality.
“We call on the energies who guide and protect us as we make our way in life. We call on our ancestors to join us at this service,” she said, before naming deceased family members. “I would ask that all of our ancestors guide and protect us.”
Nipsey Hussle’s death is prompting something extraordinary in L.A. — a full peace treaty between several gangs, and they’re demonstrating together to show their love for the slain rapper.
A peace march went down Friday afternoon in Crenshaw, not far from where Nipsey was murdered. We’re told the march was set in motion Thursday evening when gang leaders from Watts, Compton, L.A. and Inglewood all met up to discuss a cease-fire.
During the meeting, we’re told leaders talked about putting the word out in their neighborhoods to put down their firearms and show more unity — starting with the Friday afternoon march.
We’re told members of all the gangs are gathering outside a grocery store in Nipsey’s Crenshaw hood, and will walk together for a couple blocks … ending up outside his Marathon clothing store.
There hasn’t been this kind of peace between so many L.A. gangs since 1992. We spoke to community leader, Big U, about getting everyone on the same page.
As for how long the peace lasts — we’re told there was no time limit discussed, and the hope is it will be an extended one.
Kanye West is the latest huge star to pay tribute to Nipsey Hussle … and he did it with his Sunday Service.
Ye was holding his weekly outdoor concert Sunday — per usual — but at one point during the show … he played audio of Nipsey’s voice delivering some inspirational words about encouragement over music that was beginning to build, courtesy of Kanye who was DJing.
The choir and live band take it from there, as they start to play out what sounds like a hymn for Nipsey. You can also see North West getting into the vibe too.

Kanye’s shout-out to Nipsey follows J. Cole dedicating an entire song to the L.A. rapper during his inaugural Dreamville Fest Saturday. Big Sean held a special moment for Nipsey at the same event.
There’s gonna be a memorial service for Nipsey at the Staples Center on Thursday. No word yet if music will be incorporated, but Nipsey’s peers have had that covered so far.
LOS ANGELES — Thousands of mourners are expected to gather in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday to honor the life of Nipsey Hussle, the Grammy-nominated rapper who was fatally shot last month and whose success and commitment to redeveloping South Los Angeles made him a local hero.
The funeral, billed as a “celebration of life,” will be held at the Staples Center. All tickets for the event, which were free, were claimed online within minutes of being made available earlier this week. The arena’s capacity is 21,000.
Tens of thousands of fans are expected to gather around the venue, where a public memorial for Michael Jackson was hosted in 2009. The two-hour service will begin at 10 a.m. local time and will be followed by a procession from the Staples Center through South Los Angeles.
Hussle, born Ermias Joseph Asghedom, channeled his upbringing and adolescence as a gang member into music that spoke powerfully to many who live in Los Angeles’ most vulnerable neighborhoods. As his star rose in recent years, Hussle brought investments and attention back to the area, earning the adoration of his neighbors and fans.
Though he developed a following far beyond Southern California, his death last week struck a particularly painful chord among residents of the Crenshaw District, where he grew up. His clothing store on Slauson Avenue in South Los Angeles, The Marathon Clothing, had become a potent symbol of local success and black entrepreneurship, a theme he addressed regularly in his music. His fans clung to lyrics that melded familiar rap bombast with exaltations about self-discipline and long-term financial planning, a break from a music culture that often emphasizes flashy spending.
The store transformed into a makeshift memorial on March 31 after Hussle was gunned down there over a “personal dispute,” according to the Los Angeles Police Department. The suspect, Eric Holder, was apprehended by authorities two days after the shooting.
For days outside the store, fans prayed, lit candles and left hand-written letters addressed to Hussle. One of the mourners was Candace Cosey, 32, who remembers him as Ermias from their time attending Hamilton High School together in the early 2000s, a magnet school on the West Side of Los Angeles. She recalled how Hussle would sell mix CDs to her and others at school, and how he later started selling music in the neighborhood out of his trunk.
She came close to tears as she pulled out a picture of him from the high school yearbook. “If you grew up here, you either knew him directly or you knew someone who knew him,” she said.
Even as his career took off, Hussle remained approachable and “big hearted,” she said. As he amassed fame and wealth, he continued living modestly while making investments in businesses in the neighborhood. And he could be very generous. When a colleague passed away several years ago, Ms. Cosey approached Hussle’s team to see if he could help with the funeral expenses. He contributed several thousand dollars, she said.
“He was about uplifting us. He hired people from the neighborhood who wouldn’t have had a job otherwise. He took care of so many people, and he invested in what he believed in, here, because he grew up here,” she said. “We have to keep that work going. It’s what he was about.”
Hussle’s death has drawn attention far beyond the Crenshaw District. Celebrities and political leaders across the country have offered their condolences to Hussle’s family and friends. In an interview last week, Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles praised Hussle’s contributions to South Los Angeles, a community that he acknowledged has been historically overlooked by the city’s political establishment.
Mr. Garcetti said Hussle embodied the very idea of black entrepreneurship, a critical component of lifting the community and its residents.
“He represented redemption and hope. He had come from the world of gangs and gotten out,” he said. “This is a devastating shock to the stomach. He was really ambitious — he wanted to get African Americans into tech, on top of his music game, on top of his businesses.”
“Then to be killed in such a clichéd way, by guns, for a beef in South L.A., it feeds into too many stereotypes,” he said.
Velma Sanders, 60, said she did not listen to Hussle’s music but, as a lifelong resident of South Los Angeles, she felt pride watching his career grow in recent years. His presence, she said, was felt by everyone.
