I was on The Kelly File the other night discussing the #BlackLivesMatter “movement.” Actually, farce is a better word to describe it.
Black Liberals are yet again attempting to profiteer from a non-movement; CREATE nonsense to profit, so they don’t have to work.
The #BlackLivesMatter farce is the legacy of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
The facts are clear: more white people are killed than blacks each year in just raw numbers. Sure whites outnumber blacks, so we expect more whites to be killed. But to hear the #BLM proponents, you’d think whites (and other races) are not killed.
But it gets worse for the #BLM folks, when you factor in crime stats. Blacks commit more crime per capita than whites.
As The Federalist Papers reports:
“Adjusted for the homicide rate, whites are 1.7 times more likely than blacks to die at the hands of police,” Moskos said.
“Adjusted for the racial disparity at which police are feloniously killed, whites are 1.3 times more likely than blacks to die at the hands of police.”
Those are the numbers and the facts.
So how does the Left promote this farce? They trot out the SAME NAMES over and over, as if mentioning them will make the number the epidemic the Left would like it to be:
Amadou Diallo. Manuel Loggins Jr. Ronald Madison. Sean Bell. Tragedies all. But certainly not epidemic.
Add Eric Garner, who was not shot by white cops, and Michael Brown who we ALL know by now got himself killed, and what do you have. Oh, there was Freddie Gray who wasn’t shot, and neither was Sandra Bland.
Keep in mind that the Diallo case was back in 1999! The recent shooting of Samuel DuBose, again tragic, but just bad policing?
As for the other shootings, the question that the Left never asks is, were the blacks who were shot by cops good guys or bad guys. We know the answer; they were BAD GUYS! Cops were doing their jobs, removing bad guys from the street. But that narrative simply has no PAY DAY!
Want more stats? Black teens are nine times more likely to commit murder than white teens.
Don’t even bother asking how many black teens were killed by other blacks. Hundreds of blacks have killed other blacks during the #BlackLivesMatterExceptToOtherBlacks movement. This is conveniently ignored or brushed under the carpet.
Black Liberals complain that whites kill each other overwhelmingly too. That’s true. But white people are not complaining about cop killings, despite #WhiteLivesMatterToo.
Finally, does the #BLM movement care when illegals kill black people? Or is it only when COPS do it? I’m sure Jamiel Shaw, Sr. whose son was killed by an illegal would love to know.
