Black Lives Matter could win it for Trump

“…The perception that police have an animus against young black men is largely an illusion. It arises from the way a sociological fact has collided with a historical inheritance. Blacks, who make up 13 per cent of the US population, commit around a quarter of its violent crimes, including more than half its murders. They thus have more (and more dramatic) encounters with the police than citizens of other races. At the same time, black Americans’ claims that their ancestors were ill treated by the country’s white majority can neither be gainsaid nor minimised.”

    Virtually every one of BLM’s heroes were criminals involved in criminal activity when they died.

    If you want to have a laugh or alternately have your blood pressure hit new heights watch CITY-TV News at 6: it’s complete SJW-style news reporting where they’ve swallowed the BLM nonsense hook, line, and sinker.

    Used to be that CITY-TV News was for morons too stupid for the local CBC and CTV newscasts, and it still is.

    What is “progressive” about anything “progressives” have done? The November election may well be a referendum on that question

      I constantly refer to them as Regressives.

    I see Turkey is going to be playing nice again….like our Egyptian buddies.
    Report Erdogan seeking asylum in Germany…..the irony is exquisite!

    Well, as Melanie Phillips says what’s one more refugee to Merkel?

    If I were a Homicide cop in a black neighborhood:

    Me: (Out the window of the car) “Gosh! A body with holes in it! You didn’t shoot this guy. Did you Tyrone?”

    Tyrone Johnson: “Oh no I dinna doos nuffin”

    Me: “Well good enough for me. Looks like he must have died from natural causes or something. Bye Tyrone, be careful with that gun. Those things can be dangerous you know.” (Drive away)

    They want no police? Fine. Let the animals eat each other.

      They already do and have been for at least four decades now….

  • Spatchcocked

    Let’s be honest here.
    Black tits matter most…all the rest of the flap doodle is a hyperventilating denial of reality.

    Is there no leader anywhere with the guts to tell them to stop the lies and BS. The “Stop Killing Us” sign needs a response sign “Stop committing violent crime and resisting arrest and you won’t be killed”. If their claims were true, there would be no black Americans or black Canadians left alive.

    Between BLM and Islamic stunt driving, I am liking the Donald’s chances.

    Why do these BLM demos always seem to be fronted by furious-looking black women, screeching “stop killing us”? Nobody is killing them. Black women enjoy a considerably longer life expectancy than their male counterparts, rarely falling victim to either police shootings (not surprisingly, as just like non-black women they commit far less violent crime than men do) or gang-related shootings. It makes as much sense as a bunch of straights at the front of a march against gay bashing, screaming “stop beating us up!”

      Because, like pretty much every group that protests anything in our pathetic kabuki-theatreish excuse for a civilizatin, it’s, as you wrote “fronted”, and not indicative of a groundswell.

      If they didn’t complain, they’d have nothing to do.
      … except for watching TV, drinking diet sodas, and eating artificially flavoured crisps.
