Black Male Student At Savannah State Killed

The wave of black on black shootings continues at a frightening pace that will not abate
On Thursday in what should have been a safe haven another black met a deadly fate
Not on some corner contested by rival gangs to control the drug trade
But at a college where the foundations of knowledge and future success are supposed to be laid
Christopher Sparks also known for his rap name Booley Boo was a junior at Savannah State
Heading to the Student Union for probably coffee clueless that his death would await
Who would ever thing that a Student Union on a college campus could be a killing zone?
Sparks was shot following an altercation with the killer whose identity is not yet known
Small condolences to his family and friends but at least this young man was not a victim without a name or news face
Still another black life blown away, killed most likely by another black masquerading as a member of the civilized human race
