Black America is getting frustrated with the junk food media focusing on the perception of victims of gun shootings. Black men are often stereotyped by the racist right agitators, Loserville and those word of mouths.
They often look into the social networks of a Black male who became a victim of a gun shooting. They love to pull the offensive pictures to paint the victim as the aggressor and the killing would be rendered justifiable.
This campaign called #IfTheyGunnedMeDown is a meme on the social networks. Young Black people are posting their professional and not so professional pictures to prove a point. If they were killed today, how would the junk food media look at them?
You may see some of the pictures that describe the popularity of some and those who are often perceived as something their not.

Black America has had enough of the negativity from those in the junk food media. The agitators don't seem to care about the fact that for every gun shooting victim, a person's life is lost. A family is destroyed and our inept Congress continues to pocket millions of dollars from the gun lobbying groups.
Even Colorado politico Jared Polis (D-CO) got into the hashtag campaign.
If this doesn't wake up America, I don't know what would?
