The politically inconvenient deaths of young blacks
Brian C. Joondeph:
Why Don’t These #BlackLivesMatter?The fact is that Black Lives Matter is just a Democrat front group whose main purpose is to stir up the black vote for elections. They are supported by George Soros. Their purpose appears to be to tear down the fabric of civilization in the US. The result of their activity has been to increase black deaths at the hands of other young black men while acting like the cops who try to stop are the culprits.
Then there are these names: Dantrell Davis. Ryan Harris. Eric Morse. Anyone heard of them? Has Don Lemon, Lester Holt, or Al Sharpton mentioned these names on their news shows? Why is Trayvon Martin a household name but not Dantrell Davis? The three above names are black children killed in Chicago. Do their lives matter?
There are plenty more. Blair Holt, 16-year-old shot to death while riding a CTA bus in Chicago. Derrion Albert, also 16, fatally beaten in Chicago. Jonylah Watkins. a toddler killed in a Chicago drive-by shooting.
Ever hear of David Pounds? A black 15-year-old victim of a fatal drive-by shooting in Durham, North Carolina. How about Cederrius Hasting, a black high school football player gunned down in Griffin, Georgia?
Don’t these Black Lives Matter? Why aren’t they household names? Where is the media? Where is the president or the attorney general? Where are Jesse and Al? Are the only black lives that matter ones who are shot by law enforcement, typically during the commission of a crime?
Shifting gears, let’s look at the abortion industry to see if Black Lives Matter there. Planned Parenthood disproportionately places its abortion clinics in primarily black and Hispanic neighborhoods. Black women, making up 13 percent of the female population, have 37 percent of all abortions. In New York City, more black babies are killed by abortion than are born alive. Why don’t these Black Lives Matter?
The answer is politics. For the left, abortion is at the top of their core values. Hillary Clinton admires Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. The same Margaret Sanger who admitted, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.” If you listen to the media you would think those words were part of a policeman’s oath, not a racist eugenicist praised by theDemocrat presidential nominee.
The Black Lives Matter website describes, “A world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise.” Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry certainly fit this description. But not the city police departments, most of which have a black police chief, operating in cities predominantly run by Democrats. In fact, according to a University of Toledo study, as many persons are killed each year by police use of force as are struck by lightning. And of those, only one third are black. At this rate, “It would take cops 40 years to kill as many black men as have died at the hands of others black men in 2012 alone.”
