Greenfield: Black Violence Matters

A scene from yesterday’s riot in Baltimore. (Photo: NYT)

Baltimore has the fifth highest big city murder rate in the country. The four cities ahead of it are Detroit, New Orleans, Newark and St. Louis. All these cities have something in common. Not racism, but race.

The killers and the dead are black.

The murder rate in Baltimore stood at 37.4 to 100,000 people. There have already been 63 murders this year. Fifty-six of the victims were black. Of the 16 murders in the last 30 days, 14 of the victims were black.

If black lives really mattered, then black violence would matter. But that would mean taking responsibility for a broken culture which few leaders in the black community are ready to do…

    I am starting to think many of these blacks are not all that smart.

      Offhand, I can’t think of any animals dumb enough to totally destroy their own nests.

      lol…… they just said it’s only 200 or so people rioting.

  • Ed

    Liberals won’t take on black criminality because deep down they don’t think blacks can rise above it. That’s the truth and its disgusting.

      Violent blacks are the military wing of the left. Every fascist movement has its shock troops.

    I’m not in or near Baltimore and happily don’t need to go there often.
    It would be interesting to see a massive “protest march” spring up with other types of citizens carrying signs such as “We demand protection from lawlessness and criminal behavior.” “Law abiding citizens’ lives matter. We demand that police take action against the rioters.” “No safety – no business!” “Equal civic responsibility for all races.”

      They would get robbed and beaten to death by “teens”.

    A black city, with black elected leaders, with a police force that is mostly black, burns itself to the ground.
    I’m not sure I even care what they do to each other.

    Black civil rights, from its inception has been a con and a scam and that should be apparent to anyone that cares to notice.
    Did the freedom rides or the later voter registration drives make any city a better place?
    No, it make them all worse places for everyone by giving the very people most reliant on public assistance the means of voting themselves a raise at the expense of everyone else.
    The black civil rights movement was a lie built upon false narratives, phoney stage-managed outrages, and exaggerated, distorted false history retold by racial demagogs.
    The common myth of lynchings were not even true, just as almost every claim made of that era, it crumbles into dust once you critically examine it.
    Even Emmit Till was not as he was presented to be.

      Whether or not the civil rights movement was a scam, it was inevitable that the pathologies predicted by Daniel Patrick Moynihan would take hold without a strong leader to steer them straight. Martin Luther King was that strong leader who could have been like Moses leading the grumbling children of Israel through the wilderness, but he was murdered before he could meet these bigger challenges, and those who followed lacked King’s ethics and commanding personality.

        MLK was the lead con man of that whole circus!
        He was using church money to hire white hookers, he plagiarized many of his speeches and all of his academic work. He was a lying fraud from top to bottom that had a compliant press that willing lied for him.
        When cities would not allow him to march, he would threaten riots.
        He wasn’t the the anti-Sharpton, he was a proto-Sharpton!

      They will burn down another city and complain afterward that business is leaving.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Self-preservation is racism!

  • FactsWillOut

    This is why Africa is so successful. We all know they would have colonies on Mars by now, if it weren’t for the white man keeping them down.
    Read “The Bell Curve”.

    Wouldn’t reparations make them behave?

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      If I thought it would, I would invade countries to steal their gold reserves to pay to these “people” on their way back to West Africa.
      Almost any price would be a bargain.

    • lolwut?

      1 way plane tickets to Africa would be better.
