The Real Threat To Black Lives

CAL THOMAS COMMENTRY OCTOBER 2, 2017

         IF YOU PAY ATTENTION TO THE MEDIA NARRATIVE, INCLUDING THE PROTESTS AT NFL FOOTBALL GAMES, YOU WOULD THINK THAT WHITE RACISTS AND WHITE POLICE OFFICERS ARE DECIMATING THE BLACK COMMUNITY WITH VIOLENCE.

         THE LATEST FBI STATISTICS SHOW THE REAL PROBLEM IS BLACK ON BLACK VIOLENCE. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/black-lies-matter/article/2600164

         THE MANHATTAN INSTITUTE’S HEATHER MACDONALD WRITES IN CITY JOURNAL THAT 900 MORE AFRICAN-AMERICANS WERE KILLED IN 2016 THAN IN 2015. IN 2016, POLICE FATALLY SHOT 233 BLACKS, THE VAST MAJORITY OF WHOM, ACCORDING TO THE LIBERAL WASHINGTON POST, WERE ARMED AND DANGEROUS.

CONTRARY TO THE NARRATIVE OF BLACK LIVES MATTER, WRITES MACDONALD, THE POLICE HAVE MUCH MORE TO FEAR FROM BLACK MALES THAN BLACK MALES HAVE TO FEAR FROM POLICE. IN FACT, IN 2015, A POLICE OFFICER WAS 18.5 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE KILLED BY A BLACK MALE THAN AN UNARMED BLACK MALE WAS TO BE KILLED BY A POLICE OFFICER.

FACTS DON’T MATTER BECAUSE THE LEFT PROMOTES THE NARRATIVE OF A RACIST NATION TO GAIN VOTES AND KEEP AFRICAN-AMERICANS TRAPPED IN A SUBCULTURE FROM WHICH THEY HAVE DIFFICULT ESCAPING, THANKS TO LIBERAL POLICIES. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
