Black Lives Matter Doesn’t Believe Its Own Slogan

Do black lives matter to the thugs who steal from the innocent in their community and assault them? Do black lives matter to a culture that demeans and dehumanizes women?

Like so many, I’ve watched with a heavy heart the malicious violence that is sprouting like poison ivy across the country, germinated by liberal applications of incendiary rhetoric and misplaced indulgence. In the city in which I was raised, Baton Rouge, three police officers were assassinated and three officers were hospitalized with gunshot wounds. One of the dead, a black officer with 10 years on the force, had recently posted on Facebook about the angst and mounting pressure he felt from the very community he ultimately gave his life defending. Does his black life matter? Where are the protestors on his behalf?

    In New York City, black lives have mattered more to the police than to these thugs. “Broken windows policing” and stop-and-frisk reduced violent crime to the point where New York City became one of the world’s safest cities of its size, with around 400 homicides per year out of a population of 8 million.

    Black Lives Matter? So by innuendo other lives do not.
    To be legal, and non-racist, it should be:
    Black Lives matter too.

    Did black lives matter to Hillary when she was stealing from people in Haiti?

    • Minicapt

      Yes; who else would she steal from?

    It is increasingly evident that black lives matter only when those under the “Black Lives Matter” can bash the police and whitey. Otherwise, those people could not care less about black deaths.

    Black lives matter except in Detroit, Chicago, New York, etc., abortion halls of hell, and the Mother Ship Africa. Other than those places Black Lives Matter. Funny all those places are run by Blacks or Democrats.
