Black Lives Matter Reality

It is unfathomable that this movement’s goal is to fight “white supremacy” as represented by white police officers in the shooting deaths of thugs.  Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit and other cities with large black communities are setting records this year with murders; however, the murders have nothing to do with “white supremacy” but the killing of blacks by blacks.

Baltimore recorded its 212th homicide Wednesday night.  Last year Baltimore had a total of 211 killings for the year. Statistically Baltimore’s murder rate is 34 per 100,000 people. By comparison, New York City’s murder rate this year is 2.5 per 100,000.

When you look at Chicago’s murder rate it is 10.4 per 100,000.  The total number of deaths in the Windy City now stands at 284.

Yet there are no protests or movements to protest the black on black murders that quite often involve the innocent.  For example, on Tuesday night in Ferguson a 9 year old child was gunned down while she was doing her homework and her mother was wounded in the leg.

Jamyla Bolden’s death is a far greater tragedy than Michael Brown’s death.  Police surmise that the shooter fired from close range into the home.  So it was a deliberate attack. What monster would fire into a home with a child?

Just a few weeks ago a baby was killed in Chicago. No protests!

The Black Lives Matter Movement seems intent on distracting the nation and black communities from the real cause of the high death rate among African-Americans – black on black murder.  Black communities are in denial about the real cause of their misery.  They see the issue as a black versus white situation.  As long as these communities maintain that vision, they will suffer record murder rates.  The unfortunately thing is that there are too many innocent lives lost as in the case of Jamyla Bolden.

This year new murder records will be set in black communities across the nation.  The suffering continues.
