Juneteenth witnessed an alarming surge in violence in New York City, with 10 shootings and six homicides, including the tragic death of a 16-year-old boy. Mayoral candidate and former NYPD captain Eric Adams openly criticized the silence of Black Lives Matter (BLM) on this issue. “If Black Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter when innocent people are shot on our streets,” Adams stated. Adams’ challenge to BLM highlights the need for engagement and dialogue to combat violence in the community. The fight for Black Lives involves not only police reform but also ensuring overall community safety and preventing further loss of life. As we reflect on this sorrowful Juneteenth, let’s strive to make every day a celebration of life, liberty, and happiness.
