Ignoring the Elephant in the Room

2020 September 15
by bc3b

… week after week.

You have to give the Black Lives Matter folks credit. They were able to turn the death of a career criminal (who likely died of an overdose of Fentanyl) into one of the greatest hoaxes in history, enlisting the support of major corporations and every major professional sports league in the country. For some, Black Lives Matter has made rioting and looting a legitimate form of protest.

With Black Lives Matter, it’s only about the 10-15 unarmed blacks who die in police custody annually; not 6,000+ killed by other blacks. Why? Because only deaths in police custody or at the hands of whites can be used for political purposes.They couldn’t care less about the innocent black children gunned down in Chicago or Memphis every week.

Black Lives Matter has raised over $1-billion, but hasn’t contributed a cent to college scholarships for deserving young black men and women, Historic black colleges and universities or funerals for children gunned down by gang-bangers.

Because of political correctness, everyone is afraid to address the elephant in the room – black on black crime with 93% of black people murdered killed by other blacks. Of course, some dishonest media (can you say CNN) refuse to report any facts that go against its agenda. CNN isn’t afraid; it’s just dishonest.

In Chicago this past weekend 54 were shot/12 fatally. So in a single weekend approximately as many blacked were killed in a single city as unarmed blacks who will die in police custody this entire year.

Of course, there are many other things CNN covers up:

  • Crime by minorities; 53% of all murders in the US are committed by blacks
  • The fact that blacks are 9 times as likely to murder whites than vice versa
  • That it’s 18 times more likely for a cop to be killed by a black man than a black man to die in police custody

If an uninformed person tunes in CNN, he/she is likely to come away with the view that cops exist primarily to oppress blacks and that, like LeBron James ludicrous claims that he and other blacks live in constant fear of racist whites are true.

Let’s take a look at the weekend bloodbath in Chicago:

Fifty-four people people were shot, 12 of them fatally, this weekend in Chicago.

The weekend was deadlier than last week’s Labor Day weekend, when eight people were killed and 48 others hurt over three days.

This weekend’s homicide victims were between 27 and 86 years old. The youngest person wounded was 17 years old.

At least seven people were fatally shot Saturday, while four people were killed Sunday and one person was killed Monday before 5 a.m. Three of the fatalities were women.

In addition to the gun violence this weekend, a 42-year-old man was fatally stabbed Sunday in a domestic argument in the Park Manor neighborhood. A woman was arrested at the scene. No charges have been announced.

Chicago has seen a 52% increase in murders in 2020 compared to the same time last year, according to official Chicago police statistics. The city has seen a similar rise in shootings over the same time period.

So far this year, Chicago police have recorded more than 2,200 shootings and 520 murders. That’s compared to 340 murders and 1,400 shootings during by the same time in 2019.

This year’s murder count is already higher than it was in 2016, one of the city’s most violent years in the last decade.

    “Black Lives Matter has raised over $1-billion, but hasn’t contributed a cent to college scholarships for deserving young black men and women, Historic black colleges and universities or funerals for children gunned down by gang-bangers.”

    They never will either. They view the universities as part of the problem, not an ally. Which of course means that we have yet again another Left vs Left battle in the offering. (sounds like Hitler vs Stalin in miniature.) So given time, expect the uni’s to burn too.

    1, no need to look for reasons. The revolution has started. Not so many gun shots. Yet. But armies are mobilizing and are on the move.

    LeBron James spent $51-million on his Beverly Hills mansion. If he really cared (like he claims he does), wouldn’t he have kept the cost of his house down to $5 to $10-million and donated the rest to Historic Black Colleges, United Negro College Fund, job training programs in the inner city, etc.?

    James has done a few highly publicized things (like his foundation setting up a charter school), but his investment has been minimal. The majority of the cost burden has always fallen on others, mostly the taxpayers.

    In a free society, you can do whatever you want with your money, regardless of whether you make $20/hour or $40-million a year, but when you constantly open your mouth and say stupid things, prepare for criticism.

    It appears a school district in Ohio needs a new athletic director and superintendent:

    Who ever would have thought we’d see the day when honoring fallen police officers and firefighters would be grounds for suspension? My son was co-captain of the JV soccer team when 9-11 happened. He bought rolls of thin red, white and blue tape. For the balance of the season the players wore the tape on the back of their soccer shoes. With those two clowns, he would have been in big trouble.

    Did the neighborhood get a bulk rate on the signs??? I love it.

    James was robbed. The house looks like a concrete bridge with glass panels and a infinity pool.

    I don’t know if does not want to, or the civil service process is so entangled you can’t. What should be happening is that the people targeted to attend the seminars just walk out.

    5,

    Fantastic! Hear me out, the officers personal policy should not have been cancelled. Why? Because his coverage for occupational risk should be a separate policy. That way Vermont Mutual would not decline coverage. Like doctors, lawyers, engineers carry occupational liability, why not cops? Every cop should be required to have such coverage. Whether the muni picks up the tab for same is their business. But it is a way to at least drum out the bad cops.

    Update on me & Mrs. JR:

    Fire still 2 miles from our home…in an area they are finding almost impossible to access. We are refugees for at least 5 more days. We almost lost all hope last night when the police came and told the guys who stayed behind up there to “quickly shut off every propane tank in the community”. Which they did. The fire had started back towards the community, but stalled again. Thank God.

    Besides all the Civil Service problems and the fact that some agencies have more independence, I also blame the Repub Senate for not backing Trump and approving his nominees.

    Chin scientist who said CoVid created in lab — https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/twitter-suspends-account-china-scientist-who-published-paper-alleging-covid-was — has account suspended.

    I have a minor suggestion….. That account could be evidence in a future trial. Fact any account on Twitter or Facebook could be evidence in a future trial. Why not have US AG issue a blanket retention order against those companies such that a take down would be considered tampering?

    Yawn. (I happen to catch most of the related gop presser that nobody but OANN covered today too… major yawn)
    can almost hear him add: “But we’ll definitely not restore consequences for anyone in or out of DC and we’ll continue to undermine Trump should he win re-election.”

    Also Biden Lets the Truth Slip, Refers to a “Harris-Biden Administration” in Tampa Speech today, combined with Harris yesterday calling it the Harris administration. I think they are doing this on purpose as priming if you ask me.

    The Editor (or maybe former Editor, I think he might have retired) of a small local paper in Rome, NY re-writes AP stories every single day to remove bias. He also contacts them frequently to tell them what they’re doing wrong (they don’t care).
    He writes this comment after being told by FaceBook that a post of his on FB is being censored.

    “To paraphrase a trenchant Chinese authority: Facebook is Asshoe!

    I can’t easily reach the Alex Berenson comment I posted earlier that laughed at the CDC comments for masks for smoke and virus particles because the FB police have assigned “independent factcheckers” to be sure their message gets through, not yours. “False Information Found in Your Post”. They continue: “Independent fact-checkers at Associated Press say information in your post is partly false. To stop the spread of false news, we’ve added a notice to your post.”

    Really? The Associated Press? The AP that, as a newspaper editor, I have to edit back to reality every single day? The AP whose reporters blatantly report their opinion as news?

    I have found Alex Berenson to be more reliably informative, authoritative, and balanced than the CDC, the Associated Press, and Facebook combined. Read them, but don’t trust them.”

    Federal courthouse drive-by in AZ:

    “News is breaking right now of what would appear to be a targeted shooting at a federal officer who was protecting the federal courthouse in Phoenix, Arizona.

    According to reports, a U.S. Marshal, who was guarding the courthouse was shot in a drive-by shooting while he was providing security outside the courthouse in downtown Phoenix.”

    I wonder if targeting non constructionist judges and radical lefty DA’s with similar a drive-by or other means (using antifa et all as cover) would shift some attitudes, interesting opportunities exist atm to exploit\use the chaos. Probably will happen soon but in the reverse way of what I’m thinking.

    36 – Speaking of which idk if was just random luck but at grocery store today 99% of people had masks (which felt pathetic), only myself and one other person I saw entering as I was leaving didn’t,idk probably ~50person sample. That said nobody gave me shit or snide looks (or if they did I didn’t notice). Maybe they could just tell I was not in the mood and just itching to go off if anyone said a word.
    The QT down the street… 50%.

    37 – I saw that and the seperate supposed AT charge\investigation tease… What’s sad is the first has a better shot at actually having an impact than the second. Then again as one comment said “If you’re following Kim Kardashian on social media, you aren’t going to turn off your social media. ”

    BTW she was completely unclear wtf she was even talking about (not that I really give a shit) and didn’t even mention their hypocrisy nor censorship.

    41 – They had a sign, it requested it, not demanded it (else I wouldn’t have done business with them). I don’t own a legit mask anyway. I’m beyond tired with the nonsense,be the change you want to see and all that.
