Black Lives Matter Has Nothing To Do With Black Lives
As those who have read the Racism Detox know, liberals have utterly devastated the black community, and it has been entirely intentional.
The Daily Wire has a great article breaking down some facts:
93% of black homicide victims are killed by other blacks. This is never mentioned by the Ministry of Truth or Black Lives Matter. Do these black lives not matter?
Blacks committed 52 percent of homicides between 1980 and 2008, despite composing just 13 percent of the population, and commit violent crime 7 to 10 times more frequently than whites. The why of this is never discussed, which just makes the situation in black communities all the worse. (Hint: It's cultural, see the Detox.)
Blacks in cities have been voting for liberal democrats for over 50 years, and yet their situations have never improved. Black crime is even more prevalent in the largest cities and counties.
"In Chicago, IL, blacks committed 76 percent of all homicides, despite composing 35 percent of the city’s population. Blacks also accounted for 78 percent of all juvenile arrests. Whites, who compose 28 percent of the city’s population, committed 4 percent of its homicides and 3.5 percent of its juvenile arrests. Hispanics, who compose 30 percent of the city’s population, committed 19 percent of its homicides and 18 percent of its juvenile arrests. (Another eye-opening fact is that only 26 percent of murder cases were solved in Chicago.)"
And then of course there's the breakdown of the black family structure, which liberals and government intervention have only accelerated. You want to reduce crime and give black children a chance to succeed? Make sure the children have both a mother and father at home. "As economist Thomas Sowell points out, before the 1960s “most black children were raised in two-parent families.” In 2013, over 72 percent of blacks were born out of wedlock. In Cook County –which Chicago belongs to – 79 percent of blacks were born to single mothers in 2003, while only 15 percent of whites were born to single mothers." Black Lives Matter does not EVER bring up the problems missing fathers and a weak family structure have caused.
To further quote Thomas Sowell and the Detox on something Black Lives Matter is loath to admit: "Thomas Sowell performed two experiments on this subject. The first natural experiment occurred when Sowell used 1970 census data to compare the incomes of second-generation West Indian blacks and American blacks in the New York metropolitan area. Both groups would have looked and talked the same; both groups were born and educated in the same area; and both groups were trailing brutal histories of chattel slavery.
But despite being subjected to the same racist treatment by local whites, second-generation West Indian black families were highly successful, out-earning American black families by 58 percent, and even out-earning the national average income by 15 percent. Sowell’s conclusion was unequivocal: “Neither race nor racism can explain such differences.”
The second natural experiment involved comparing the outcomes of black immigrants on the whole with the outcomes of American blacks (i.e., blacks descended from American slaves.) Although black immigrants (and especially their children, who are indistinguishable from American blacks) presumably experience the same ongoing systemic biases that black descendants of American slaves do, nearly all black immigrant groups out-earn American blacks, and many—including Ghanaians, Nigerians, Barbadians, and Trinidadians & Tobagonians—out-earn the national average.
"I'll give you the short answer. It's CULTURAL, not racial. And it is courtesy of LBJ's "Great Society," and the Democrat party's subsequent programs to buy votes and maintain a perpetually aggrieved underclass in America.""
Instead of talking about any of this, the mob of Black Lives Matters just demands you LITERALLY BOW BEFORE THEM, and support policies that will only make life worse for blacks.
But the policies will ensure they remain loyal votes for the liberal democrats. So tell me again what the purpose of Black Lives Matter is?
