I bet you are not used to hearing it put that way:
In The Lying Press, the lede is always “White cop guns down unarmed black man,” usually accompanied by photos for the bleeding hearts of the “unarmed black man” when he was 8-years-old or graduating high school:
“Police in Memphis identified a 29-year-old convicted bank robber as the man who allegedly killed a city cop during a traffic stop on Saturday.
Police director Toney Armstrong on Sunday evening told reporters that officer Sean Bolton apparently interrupted a drug deal and that after “some type of physical altercation,” Bolton was shot and killed by a passenger in the car. Armstrong said police were searching for 29-year-old Tremaine Wilbourn and had issued a warrant for his arrest.
Wilbourn had been free on supervised release by the U.S. Western District Court for a 122-month sentence for bank robbery, Armstrong said. He now faces a first-degree murder charge. …”
First, the facts:
136 police officers are killed every year in America versus an average of 96 blacks killed by police. Although blacks are 13 percent of the population, they are at least 43 percent of cop killers whose race is known. Around 300 White males are killed every year by cops but Whites aren’t rioting and burning down major cities because of it.
Of the 8,000 to 9,000 blacks who are murdered every year in America, 90 to 93 percent are murdered by other blacks. Less than 1 percent of blacks who are killed annually die at the hands of police officers. In the overwhelming majority of cases, the use of deadly force by police officers is justified by the circumstances.
In 85 percent of cases, interracial violent crime between blacks and Whites is black-on-White. As it happens, the same is true of black-on-Hispanic violence. Incredibly, 60 percent of the victims of black violence are not black. Blacks are 27 times more likely to attack Whites than the other way around. Yet 100 percent of the sympathy of The Lying Press is bestowed upon black thugs like Michael Brown.
As for so-called “hate crimes” and even terrorist attacks, the statistics are bogus because, as we see time and again, incidents which don’t fit the narrative are excluded or not classified and prosecuted as such. In this way, the Fort Hood shooting, the woman who was beheaded by a black Muslim in Oklahoma, and even Mohammad Abdulazeez’s recent shooting in Chattanooga are said to have nothing to do with Islam and were “workplace violence” or “homegrown domestic extremism.” We haven’t heard of the dozens, maybe hundreds, of Confederate monuments that were vandalized by #BlackLivesMatter supporters being prosecuted as “hate crimes” either.
Memphis is a place where the police union puts up billboards warning travelers to “enter at your own risk.” It’s a typical black majority city plagued by violent flash mobs that is more interested in disturbing the graves of dead Confederates than in promoting public safety. We’re not in the least bit surprised this happened in Memphis given than it is actually the third time in recent years.
Cities like Memphis, Baltimore, and St. Louis are in the midst of the Obama crime wave. By the end of the year, the gruesome death toll of the #BlackLivesMatter movement should be shockingly evident as a twenty year decline in violent crime comes to an end.
Note: The SPLC has condemned the C of CC for spreading a “false narrative of a victimized white majority under siege by allegedly violent people of color in the United States.”
