#BlackLivesMatter, White Guilt and the Marketing of Racism

 In Abortion, black genocide, civil rights, news, planned parenthood, racism

I can’t breathe.

I’m literally fighting back tears as I write, again, about this prevalent injustice. They don’t see us as individual human beings, but a group to be exploited, separated, and judged based on our pigmentation.

I’m talking about mainstream media and their manipulation of all Americans, corralling us into our respective color zones. They have a narrative to peddle. And we see it with every tragic account of black Americans killed by those tasked with the extremely dangerous job of serving and protecting. I’m repulsed by a news media that is hell-bent on fomenting a racial war.

I’m angry by the seemingly impulsive and irreversible actions of a handful of overzealous police officers whose punishment (if that even happens in court) will never bring back these precious lives.

Many of us can recall the names: Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, Alton Sterling. Regardless of guilt or innocence, we know their names. But who can recall one single white person killed by police officers? Go ahead. Ask your friend, your co-worker, your FB followers, your #BlackLivesMatter activist. The answer will be the same. Silence.

Whites are killed by cops, according to a database created by the Washington Post twice as much as blacks. Out of a total of 995 killed, 497 (or 50%) were white and 259 (or 26%) were black. Of those killed, 776 (or 78%), were armed with a deadly weapon; another 5.5% were armed with a vehicle. But hey, let’s only report when unarmed black individuals are victims of police brutality. This is a deliberate and despicable attempt by mainstream media to color the issue.

Just to put things into perspective, Planned Parenthood kills more unarmed black lives in one day than police are accused of killing in one entire year. (These Planned Parenthood-caused deaths of black unarmed lives in the womb amount to 266 a day, which is 30%–the percentage of the nation’s abortions among blacks—of the 323,999 abortions in 2014-2015 that generated over $200 million annually for the abortion chain.) The hypocrisy of #BlackLivesMatter leaders screamed loudly as they recently announced solidarity with the pro-abortion movement. Apparently, black lives matter only some of the time.

"Planned Parenthood - Leading Killer of Unarmed Black Lives"So, armed with the one-sided reporting, #BlackLivesMatter leaders (who have no use for the facts) declare there is an epidemic of cops killing innocent black people. There are 45,672,250 black Americans (including those who are biracial); I’m one of them. The 259 police-caused African-American deaths in 2015 amount to 0.000006% of the black population. Some of these deaths are clearly an injustice. It’s tragic (especially for the families suffering the loss of family or friends) but not an epidemic. However, if you tweet it a million times and mainstream media reports on it daily, how can you blame people for thinking this is widespread?

Every agonizing death is one too many. Last night I heard from those who’ve lost loved ones to senseless violence, which were mostly the result of black-on-black crimes. Yes. Black homicide victims’ biggest threat is not those in blue, but those with black skin. Of the 3,021 blacks murdered (single victim/single offender), 90% of the murderers…were black.

To add further context, of the 13,897 people reported by the FBI to commit murders in 2014, 37% of them were black. This is hugely disproportionate considering people of my complexion comprise 13% of the U.S. population. Contrast that with 31% of those committing homicides being white, which is far less than their 62% representation in the population. According to the Department of Justice, blacks are responsible for 21.9% of violent crimes which is more than the representation in the population. Whites are responsible for 53.9% of violent crimes, less than the representation in the population.

This is, in no way, any justification for unjust actions against any human being but it defies the racial storyline promoted by mainstream media and the Obama administration. In fact, it’s interesting that once President Obama took office, that data table that has been used for years to provide the demographics on the race of violent offenders (Table 42) no longer appears on the DOJ’s website beyond 2008. Hmmmmm.

And now, in a shocking episode of rhetoric-turned-reality, five cops were assassinated in Dallas because the “pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon” BLM crowd and liberal news media waged their war. Now, they must own the casualties. This isn’t the first time cops have been targeted and killed by BLM rhetoric and gun violence.

But, sure, Jesse Williams. Let’s blame “whiteness”. Let’s pretend “police somehow manage to de-escalate, disarm and not kill white people every day.” Guess those 497 white people killed by cops in 2015 are just imaginary. Williams, like many other #BlackLivesMatter celebrity activists, simply sticks to the script. There is just rich irony in a biracial man (from a black father and white mother), blaming “whiteness” for the violence and oppression of black Americans, being given the BET Humanitarian Award by State Farm (a company run by white executives with only one non-white, black Board member) and Viacom (a network run by white executives).

Which brings me to the epidemic that is happening in this country—Whites Accepting Guilt Syndrome, or WAGS. Just stop it. Stop crying on Facebook about your complicity when you ignore the "One Human Race" by The Radiance Foundationcontext. Stop blaming your “privilege” for someone else’s actions. I’m tired of seeing fellow evangelicals mistake capitulation for compassion. We can rally for racial justice…any kind of justice, without embracing a fundamentally dishonest political movement. We will never defeat injustice, when and where it really happens, by the unjust power of a lie. Injustice’s worst enemy is Truth spoken and lived out in Love.

We can mourn the loss of innocent lives—white, black and every hue in between. We can work to improve communities ravaged by daily violence with our prayers, our presence, and our partnerships. We must defy the destructive narrative spewed by a reckless and irresponsible media establishment that regurgitates a black nationalist, disturbingly Marxist worldview in the guise of a new civil rights movement. Let’s move beyond a hashtag that has been used to bludgeon and use words that speak life and affirm our equal, and irreplaceable, worth as human beings who happen to be beautifully adorned with different pigmentation.

08/25/16 UPDATE: The world’s largest population control organization (The Ford Foundation), which has poured hundreds of millions into the #1 killer of unarmed black lives (Planned Parenthood), is now funding the #BlackLivesMatter movement. The foundation’s goal is to raise $100 million for the BLM’s far-left racial propaganda and its recently released (ludicrous) Marxist platform.

    Overwhelming facts and logic in that essay. That’s why it will never make it into mainstream media.

  • Peter Hunsberger

    “Whites are killed by cops, according to a database created by the Washington Post twice as much as blacks.”

    Actually, it’s the other way around (since there are 5x as many whites as blacks). But yes, these are pretty rare occurrences.

    So is BLM just about police killing black people? As I understand it, the movement is about much more than that. There is still a sense that our justice system, on average, treats whites more fairly than blacks. We don’t often hear stories about the rates of false imprisonment for black men, the rates that black teens are tried as adults compared to their white counterparts, etc. These are important issues and I think BLM is trying to bring these issues to light (not just police killing black people). Whether they are doing so effectively is a whole other discussion.

      Thank you Peter

    While I agree with some of the points in this article, its desire to minimize the significance of the police-caused African American deaths causes it to interpret numbers simplistically. The significance of the numbers need to be clarified desperately. White people were 50% of the deaths, but are 60% of the population in the U.S.; black people are 26% of the deaths but are 13% of the U.S. population. Those are the proportions that are most concerning. Also, the author seems to contradict himself. He says “Every agonizing death is one too many. “, but deliberately calculates a percentage that minimizes the problem by saying, “The 258 police-caused African-American deaths in 2015 amount to 0.000006% of the black population. It’s tragic but not an epidemic.”. I know we’re driven by ideologies, but this is just proper statisitcs.

      Blacks, although 13% of the population, account for 37% of homicides in this country and, reportedly, over 50% of violent crimes. Non-Hispanic whites, although 62% of the population, account for 31% of homicides and a lower percentage of violent crimes compared to their representation in the population. As you’ve repeated in the above remarks, the 0.0000006% was to disprove the lie that killings of blacks by police is epidemic. The number shows this is not a widespread occurrence. There’s no contradiction in the article.

      It’s proper statistics to make the point he was making, not the point you’re making. He was using it to explain that the percentage of the black population killed by police is not epidemic. Or to refute Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr’s claim that “Unarmed black people are being killed indiscriminately around the country.”

      To make the case you think he was making, you’d need to compare white and black citizen encounters with police under largely similar circumstances. This has been done and has shown whites are actually killed at a little higher rate than blacks when the same conditions exist. The study’s author said it was the most surprising result of his career, probably due to the narrative that fools like Steve Kerr promote.

    Democrat Pat Caddell: Media Have Become An “Enemy Of The American People”

    This is STILL not comparing apples and apples ….it’s saying the SAME old TIRED flipping thing!!!

    Cops killed twice as many whites as blacks. I’m so sick of this absolutely incorrect use of stats. I have ALREADY tied to explain what is wrong with this.

    SO here it is in a very SIMPLE format. This says that cops killed twice as many whites as blacks. But there are 3/4 MORE whites in the United States than blacks. Putting the number of blacks killed compared to whites at 25 (roughly) percent more prevalent then whites.

    Here is another way to think about it. When shooting fish in the barrel….if there are 77 percent more white fish than black fish in the barrel, it would be likely that you will shoot more white fish because they account for much more of the space in the barrel. (All things being equal you know…)

    SOOOOOO. If out of 100 fish in the barrel only 13 of them were black fish and you shot 25 fish total, than if you were being equal about your shootings you would have only shot five black fish and 20 white fish.

    But…that is not what these stats in this sophomoric article indicates. (By the way…your article’s stats don’t even add up correctly because the writer only accounts for 707 of those shot!!! And the writer is talking about 990 people total who were shot!!!) There are a missing 283 people who were shot. So you can’t even really use that overall number because that number likely accounts for other races of color!!! To really tell what is going on you have to use the 707 number to start with if you are ONLY comparing the number of whites shot with the number of blacks shot.

    So the TRUTH is….if shootings were all equal as the radical right would like you to believe (and they are even suggesting that things are WORSE for whites being shot supposedly at “twice” the rate as blacks)…then THESE are the numbers that would indicate a more equal approach to shootings.

    for things to be equal in this case, 615 whites would have had to have been shot. In this EQUAL scenario 92 blacks would have to have been shot. This would allow for a writer to be able to say ONLY that exactly as many whites are shot as blacks per capita.

    When dealing with ANY statistics, population, median income, pretty much ANYTHING that the government accounts for, raw numbers are only used once…to describe total population. From there, everything is accounted for using per capita figures in order to account for incidences within certain population demographics.

    But that is not what the ARTICLE says is it? No it is not. It falsely insinuates that “twice as many whites are shot than blacks” by simply using RAW numbers that works to prove their theory and support their own opinion. But it is a blatant and inflamatory lie. NOW who is spinning a Narrative…as the silly-assed writer says.

    How handy when you are not considering the obvious difference in demographics.

    THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT and most people are to lazy to do the Effing math!!

    • Jason Jones

      It would appear that you are the lazy one. You are not further contextualizing the numbers. Your analysis assumes that whites have proportional contact with police as much as blacks. Every measurable crime statistic shows that blacks commit far higher instances of crime than their representation in population. That means that police are having far more interactions with blacks per capita than whites. That makes it even more remarkable that more whites are shot by police than blacks.

      For liberals this is another example of what we call “an inconvenient truth.”

      • James Moore

        She’s afraid of being labeled as a “racist”. She has no time to worry about how to actually properly read statistical information.

  • Le Monocle de Mon Oncle

    Great article. It’s sad to see how many people have been misled by the sensationalizing, race-baiting media. This brief note (https://medium.com/@Zoobahtov/no-you-need-to-stop-misleading-people-that-theres-some-epidemic-of-anti-black-police-violence-8c7ad587634d#.cdqsl3hlm ) summarizes the empirical evidence showing that whites are actually killed by police at a HIGHER rate than blacks when you make the relevant comparison, which is NOT against the percentage of blacks and whites in the general population, but rather, against the percentage of whites and blacks who are involved in interactions with police. Since we don’t have direct data on that, we use criminal convictions as a proxy. But the bottom-line point should be that regardless of who is killed more often by police, it is, as you say, a MINUSCULE issue compared to the larger issues out there, including, I’d say, the big issue of disproportionate black poverty, which is what we, as a society, should be addressing, and that means findings ways of integrating people of all races into one common society rather than fanning the flames of race-consciousness and race-hatred the way the media and, unfortunately, much of the identity-politics segment of the left, including Hillary Clinton, are doing.
