Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
In our crazy, upside down, environment when the term “racist” is used to describe someone with opposite or opposing views, we have the dichotomy that if you proclaim “All Lives Matter”, you are considered a racist.
The term “Black Lives Matter” is being promoted as that black lives are being systematically oppressed and, in too many cases, killed by brutal police tactics. The facts don't back up those claims as the statistics by the FBI and by author Heather MacDonald seem to prove. The false claims that police are killing unarmed blacks at an alarming rate doesn't meet the standards of proper reporting.
In 2019, there was a total of 28 cases of police killing unarmed people. Out of that total, 19 were white people and 9 were black people. Do these statistics prove that police killings are endemic in our society? The answer is a resounding NO! Yes, there are cases of some police using excessive force, but with the millions of interchanges between the police with blacks and whites, the facts do not back up the case of “endemic police brutality”. In addition, FBI statistics show that a policeman is 18 ½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than a black male will be killed by a policeman.
Look what is happening around the country today, this Marxist/Socialist group, BLM, (self proclaimed I might add), is shaming corporations, sports leagues and teams, and celebrities, into contributing to their cause and the approval of their disruptive behavior. This is a group that really doesn't have black lives as their main concern as their “modus operandi”. If it was, they would be protesting and demonstrating in Chicago and other cities where blacks are being murdered, not by the police, but by other blacks in the hundreds. It is in those cities is where the death rates of blacks is in endemic proportions by the hands (or guns) of other black people, not by the police.
In observing these rioting protesters, you'll see many white faces (mostly young people) mouthing the slogans of “Black Lives Matter”, “No Justice, No Peace”, “Defund the Police”. “Hands Up, Don't Shoot” etc. Where did these young people get the idea that our country is a “racist” country? Could it be our schools that have filled these young people's “heads full of mush” with such an idea by their leftist teachers and professors? It seems they have been infused with “white guilt” which has resulted in many of them joining the “Black Lives Matter” movement (and also ANTIFA). The days of Dr. Martin Luther King seem to be long gone as these black racial anarchists believe violence is the way to go, not passive resistance as Dr. King promoted and preached.
So, in conclusion, the specific term “Black Lives Matter” should be expanded to to include “All Lives Matter”. This violence must be stopped, otherwise, our society will not survive as our “Founding Fathers” had envisioned when they wrote the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. This phrase, “All Lives Matter” is not racist, it is common sense.
