The phrase being shouted, these days, is “Black Lives Matter!” In the mouths of those shouting it, the phrase has NO MEANING!
The effort is to emphasize the disproportionate number of black lives being forfeited in our society. Black folks represent 13.2% of the population, according to a 2014 Census. They represent 40.7% of the illegitimacy rate, meaning 72% of these folks are living in disconnected and dysfunctional family structures.
Do “Black Lives Matter?” Apparently not to Blacks.
“In America the poverty rate for blacks is two and half times higher than the white poverty rate [24% v. 10%]. However, two-parent black families are rarely poor. Where both husband and wife are working, the current poverty rate is only 2% and, when factors such as occupational choices, educational attainment, age, geographic location and comparative skills are taken into account…THE DISPARITY VANISHES!!” [Walter Williams: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=1261 ]
So, What’s Going On?
The ‘Black Lives Matter’ campaign is much like the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ campaign, merely an excuse to ‘Act Up!’ [Another social movement with no real meaning]
Police officers throughout America will tell you a very small percentage of their population is committing the majority of the crimes. This means they are dealing with 10/15% of the population, on a regular basis. They know these folks. They have a history with these folks. Each encounter is dominated by the events, feelings and exchanges from the last encounters.
In a Ferguson, Missouri, where the population is 70% black, this means the officers are encountering black folks almost 100% of the time, due to this statistical reality!
According to a Report on the differences in crime rates by race, bias in the justice system, and interracial crime [1999 — New Edition 2005 by New Century Foundation] blacks were found to be 7 times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, 8 times more likely to commit robbery, 3 times more likely to use a gun and 2 times more likely to use a knife. http://www.amren.com/archives/reports/the-color-of-crime/
Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks (who represent 13% of the population) commit 85 percent of those crimes. Forty five percent of their victims are white. When whites commit crimes, only 3% of their victims are black. Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.
We don’t have a White Disparity in America, we have a Black Crime Problem.
Now, add abortions. Every day in America, an average of 3,315 human beings lose their lives to abortion, 995-1,207 are black. 13% of the population represents 35% of the abortions. Why? Because of the breakdown of The Family Structure and the subsequent Immorality that follows.
It’s waning, but not that long ago black gran-mas were respected women who stood for a strong family unit! They have been raising their grandchildren for the last several generations, in large part because of the Race-baiting and Race-hustling of men like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan.
Missionaries to poor sections of this country told the story: In the 1970’s, as soon as The Great Society took root, the folks (white and black) who were once glad to have any clothing the missionaries could bring, now refused anything that wasn’t new or looked new. If a button was missing they didn’t want it! Why? The Great Society!
This attitude pervaded The Family Structure! “I don’t have to live this way!” “I can get paid by the government to do nothing!” No longer bound by the family, these young people set off to establish a Counter-Culture. One that owed nobody, nothin’!
Black Lives Matter! They just don’t matter to black folks.
Men and women who have been used and abused by political and social con-artists to further their own personal agenda are being kept OUT of the mainstream of society; by ‘activists’ and ‘community organizers,’ who know the value of keeping the masses under their control.
The police are tasked with ‘Keeping The Peace.’ Black leadership is telling folks to Resist! ‘The system is prejudiced against Black folks (and the poor), they shout!’
So… When a police officer tells a person with this mentality to DO something, the last thing they want is to DO IT. This sets up The Confrontation. Add to that the reality that these police officers have dealt with this individual several times ….know that he / she is NOT going to respond to a lawful order….and you have an ‘incident’ just waiting to happen!
Black Response? “Black Lives Matter!” “Police Brutality!” In some cases, it’s true. However, the constant accusations blur reality and true justice may not be served. The effort to get the police under their control has no doubt masked some really abusive treatment. Is this what you call “Winning?”
