On To Charlotte: Black Lives Matter II, Obama, and the Race Industry


           It is onto Charlotte and beyond for the ever burgeoning race industry lead by President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Democrats.  They are joined by their associates in the media, the academy, the “civil rights” caucus, and Black Lives Matter, the racist group that promotes cop killing. 

            Indeed, the race business in America is thriving. Under our first black President, it has expanded.  Limited before to the inner cities, it has now gone national. Race players on parade everywhere, in our streets, across our TV screens, into every nook and cranny of American life. 

            Keith Scott, a 43-year-old black man with a long rap sheet, is the newest martyr of the Democrats, the government-run media, and Black Lives Matter.  He had been convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in three states including against a woman and a child, and spent seven years in prison.  Scott exited his car in Charlotte with a handgun.  He was warned by police to put down his weapon.  Deemed a threat, he was shot and killed by Brentley Vinson, a black officer.  The firearm was collected.  It was loaded and had his fingerprints.  There is no racism here.

            Black Lives Matter, Obama, and the left argue that police shootings of unarmed blacks reflect police bias. They compare the number of blacks killed by police to their number in the population rather than their share of the criminal offender pool.  But a 2011 study of California and New York arrest data showed that blacks commit homicide at 11 times the rate of whites.  In 75 of the largest counties in 2009, blacks were 62 percent of robbery defendants, 61% of weapons offenders, 57% of murder defendants, 50% of forgery defendants, but only 13% of population.  (Heather MacDonald)  The data shows that policing, prosecution, and incarceration accurately reflect crime rates not bias.        

            There is no “systemic” racism in our law enforcement and criminal justice systems.  It is a lie promoted by Democrats to support their destructive ideology and to gain political advantage.  Many if not most of our inner cities have majority or near majority black police officers, black police commissioners, black city councils, and black mayors, all liberal Democrats.  Baltimore, the scene of riots by Black Lives Matter and others over the death of Freddie Gray, has a black mayor, a black police commissioner, and 9 out of 15 black members on its City Council. Its juries, judges, and attorneys are liberal Democrats many if not most black.  Baltimore voted 87% for Obama in 2012.  Is this liberal Democrat stronghold the source for genocidal racist police tactics?

            The problem in the black community is not racist cops.  It is black criminality.  Every week blacks, many of them innocent and law abiding, are being slaughtered, robbed, raped, and assaulted by black predator criminals.  America’s largest cities, including Baltimore, Chicago, St. Louis, and Milwaukee, are experiencing spikes in murder rates.  Chicago saw its bloodiest month in two decades last August with 90 murders, 384 shootings and 472 total shooting victims. The overwhelming majority of victims are black, yet left wing Democrats want to rail about non-existent racist cops.  But law-abiding blacks want to live in safe neighborhoods, not crime-ridden hellholes.

            Why is there so much discussion on alleged racial bias where none exists? To avoid the important question of why there is so much black crime.  Black criminality is the result of the anti-black liberal policies of the last sixty years foisted on black communities by Democrats who control the cities where most blacks live.  It is Democrats who bear responsibility for the disintegration of the black community, the breakdown of the two-parent family, the unemployment, poverty, educational failure, and high crime and incarceration rates that afflict blacks.  If a fraction of the attention given to rooting out fictional police bias had been spent denouncing black crime while restoring the two-parent family, we may have broken the link between black communities and the heavy police presence they now require.

            It is the creation of a black underclass through anti-black Democrat policies that have damaged the black community, not “racist” police.  It is the inculcation of underclass values that have devastated blacks, not “systemic racism.”  It is the anti-black narrative promulgated by white liberals and the Democrat Party, their insufferable and debilitating message of black failure and victimhood, black grievance and dependency, of so called “structural” racism and black inadequacy that has broken the black community. 

            Keith Scott was a violent criminal thug who died as he lived.   Like Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, and so many other “martyrs” of the Democrats, the media, and Black Lives Matter.  Obama, Hillary, and the race industry want more Keith Scotts.  They thrive on chaos and turmoil, and its victims do not matter.  But we demand something better.
