Black lives matter ...

Black lives do matter!  Black lives matter to most everyone.  Black lives matter to the whites, the browns and to every other race except to the blacks that espouse the premise that racism is to blame for the disparity between them and everyone else but mostly between them and the white community.

Then there was Dallas and now Baton rouge, apparently white lives do not matter nor do the lives of the police.  If black lives matter are their lives more important than the other lives that they are taking?

There is an inherent evil in promoting one group at the exclusion of another.  That practice is evil and is blatantly racist.  When the leaders of the “black lives matter” movement proclaim that black lives matter what they are not saying in the same breath is that everyone else does not matter to the same extent.   We should feel guilty for the oppression and the actions of our forefathers and be prepared to give up our lives for the lives of those who proclaim preeminence based on the faulty premise that only black lives matter.  

TOTAL POPULATION
TOTAL NO. OF SLAVES
NO. OF FAMILIES
TOTAL FREE POPULATION
TOTAL NO. OF SLAVEHOLDERS
PERCENT OF FAMILIES OWNING SLAVES
SLAVES AS PERCENT OF POPULATION
Total                  31,183,582 3,950,528      5,155,608    27,233,198             393,975           8%-13%

The above is only a point of reference and not an excuse or an attempt to mitigate the horrors that was or is slavery.  The Black lives matter movement has some of its impetus because of the ongoing reality of slavery and the effects of a race of people having been subjugated and used.  Slavery is unequivocally evil and should never have happened.  The reality of slavery today is however much worse than it ever was with the same horrors that occurred are still raging out of control in many parts of the world and in this country. 

Black slavery, white slavery, child abuse, indentured servitude etc.….the list is long and horrific with millions being subjected to the will of others without recourse; slavery must end.
Black lives do matter.  All lives matter but when you take the totality of crime in relation to race you can easily see a disparity in the claims with those who scream the loudest.  If Black lives matter why are they not engaged in stopping the violence in the inner cities?  Consider the following as reported from the Daily Wire: 

1.        Data shows that 93 percent of black homicide victims are killed by other blacks.
2.       The Wall Street Journal's Jason Riley points out that the white crime rate is "much lower than the black rate."  According to Riley, "Blacks commit violent crimes at 7 to 10 times the rate that whites do."  There are reasons to explain why but should not that be the focus of the protests?
Blacks committed 52 percent of homicides between 1980 and 2008, despite composing just 13 percent of the population. Across the same time-frame, whites committed 45 percent of homicides while composing 77% of the population, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
3.       Black crime is even more prevalent in the country's largest cities and counties.

Heather Mac Donald writes in her book The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Safe that 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 from Mac Donald's research is that only 26 percent of murder cases were solved in Chicago.)

Blacks are 10 percent of the population in Los Angeles, CA, but commit 42 percent of its robberies and 34 percent of its felonies. Whites make up 29 percent of the city's population, and commit 5 percent of its robberies and 13 percent of its felonies.

I could go on but I think you get the picture.  Black lives matter, of course they do but apparently they don’t matter to the blacks that are pushing and screaming in order to maintain their preeminence of power or control.

The Marxist Ideology that is being promoted only serves the few who continue to espouse the process and they continue to benefit as long as their voice is heard and followed.  If they who are screaming that “black lives matter” really cared about their brothers they would be focusing on the problems and not the hyperbole of a few scattered incidents that have all turned out to be the fault of the so called victims and not of the Police.

The terror that is being promoted and the idea of a runaway constabulary are false and anyone who believes these claims is feeding the evil, letting it flourish and grow.  The act of contrition has some merit perhaps but not by me and not by most who strive to lead a good and productive lives.  I am not a racist and most of you are not racist.  But to listen to those few, including President Obama we are the reasons for the outbreak of hate and the slaughtering of innocent children in our streets.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Like the absence of truthful rhetoric, calling terror for what it is, like Islamic extremism the black lives matter orotundity does exactly the same.  They continue to speak in a manner that is completely false in order to garner an extreme following that will only bolster the position of those who continue to want power over the solution.  Their only purpose is to their own sovereignty and not the eventual resolution of peace.

Evil is evil, no matter how you couch the words.   Whether it’s within the Muslim brotherhood, ISIS or Black lives matter the fruits of their labor will tell the story of their motivations.  We need to listen carefully but not to their words.  We need to pay attention to the real problems and find workable solutions that divide (yes I said divide) the good from the evil and stop pandering to the evil of this world.

Frankly I’m tired of excusing the evil all around me and listening to others try to understand why they want to kill us or destroy us.  I would think that if an assailant entered my house to do me harm I would not step back and ask why are you doing this?  It’s time for positive action to prevent the evil from entering our homes and our communities.   It’s past the time to figure out why, I can tell you why, they hate us, they hate the freedoms, they hate the goodness of what we are and they want to destroy that goodness because they are evil.

It’s time to see them for what they are…EVIL …and it’s time to fight that evil with the goodness that is in all of us.
