I've been hearing quite a bit about this alleged war being carried out against black people. I've been told from numerous sources that the killing of Michael Brown is but another piece of evidence that, in the words of someone on my Facebook page, blacks are 'hunted' in this country.
Black people are under attack, we're informed. Cops, especially, are roaming the streets executing innocent black men in cold blood, for no reason, and without ever being held accountable for it.
And then out come the statistics: A black person is killed by a cop every day. A black man is 20 times more likely to be shot by a police officer. Law enforcement is responsible for more black deaths than sharks and lightening combined. And so on.
Unfortunately, these numbers don't take into account how many of those black people were killed by a cop while trying to kill a cop. Apparently, in the world of Shocking Statistics Used to Prove a Liberal Argument, such details are somehow irrelevant. Could it be that a companion study might prove that black males are also 20 times more likely to violently attack police officers? Has anyone checked up on that angle?
I don't know this for sure, but I am going to assume that if you take criminals, drug dealers, gang bangers, thugs, and the like out of the equation, and compare law abiding citizens of all races, you'll find that the 'killed by a cop' figures are virtually identical. Michael Brown was killed because he was a violent criminal, not because he had a skin pigmentation displeasing to the officer. In fact, you'll discover that anyone of any color who obeys the law and doesn't fight cops will almost certainly avoid being killed by them. Yes, there are exceptions. There are tragic accidents, mistakes, and misunderstandings -- like the poor young boy who was shot after brandishing a realistic toy gun on the playground a few days ago -- but these are the exception to the rule. For the most part, in the vast majority of cases, if you follow the law and avoid provoking violent encounters with the police, you will not be 'hunted' by anyone.
The obfuscation here is truly remarkable. No matter how often it happens, it will always boggle my mind that anyone could site these figures about blacks getting shot by cops without even mentioning that a large number of them were engaged in shoot-outs prompted by their decision to commit a crime. It's one thing to try and mitigate these qualifiers, but to act like they have no bearing on the matter at all? Incredible. Simply incredible. And then to take the fate of violent criminals and extrapolate that it's just as likely to befall any person of color regardless of their law abiding nature? Again, incredible. We have reached a level of intellectual dishonesty never before encountered by mankind. It's like a self-imposed insanity of sorts, and it makes reasonable conversation impossible.
That said, they do have a point, actually.
The people who claim blacks are being targeted and erased are, in fact, raising an important issue.
The ones who hold signs saying 'Black Lives Matter' are making a profoundly necessary statement.
It's just that the shooting of Michael Brown had nothing to do with it.
And the cops have nothing to do with it.
And nothing that Al Sharpton talks about has anything to do with it.
And none of the business owners whose buildings were destroyed had anything to do with it -- although I'd amend that statement if it turns out that someone set a Planned Parenthood ablaze.
Indeed, if you want to protest the one institution ehich kills more black people than any other, head to your local abortion clinic.
The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus released a predictably hysterical and disingenuous statement after the prosecutor announced a No True Bill in the Brown case. She said it was a miscarriage of justice that the witnesses statements and physical evidence didn't support an indictment. I think she meant that it was a miscarriage of mob rule, or a miscarriage of vengeance, or perhaps a miscarriage of injustice, because I can't see how justice is miscarried when a grand jury fails to indict because the evidence conclusively proves that there is no grounds for indictment. In any case, at some point in her lying, race baiting rant she said this: 'This decision seems to underscore an unwritten rule that black lives hold no value.'
Wrong again. That rule is written. It's called Roe v Wade. It is codified into law that all unborn life has no value, only this codification happens to disproportionately impact the black population.
Being conceived black in this country is a dangerous proposition. Did you know that 16 million black babies have been slaughtered in the past four decades? 16 million. 16 million. Do liberals realize this is happening? I assume they don't. If they did, I expect they'd be shouting about it from the roof tops, given their great and righteous concern for the fate of black children.
Yes, abortion has claimed 16 million black lives in the last 40 years. 16 million black babies have ended up in dumpsters and hazardous waste containers. Black people are only 13 percent of the population but they account for almost 40 percent of all abortions. Abortion doctors kill more black people in a week than the KKK has in the past century. There are almost 2,000 black lives ended by abortion every single day in the United States, and overall, a black baby is more than 5 times as likely to be executed as a white baby. Try to reflect on this statistic: abortion kills more black people than heart disease, cancer, strokes, accidents, diabetes, homicide, and respiratory illness -- COMBINED. Throw cops in there, too, and it's still not close. Comparing just the two causes of death, it appears that abortionists kill about 700 times more black people than do cops.
It's a grim picture, to say the least. Consider that, if not for abortion, the black population would be 36 percent larger than it is currently. Without Planned Parenthood and its partners in the Infanticide Industry, black people would be much less a minority in America. It's abortion that keeps their percentages so low. It's abortion that victimizes them more than anything.
I remember after the Trayvon fiasco when the NAACP asked Obama to press civil rights charges against Zimmerman. Part of their case was, and I'm not kidding here, that Zimmerman infringed on Martin's 'right to life.' What a miracle. The NAACP has suddenly discovered the 'right to life' and the Congressional Black Caucus has, for the first time, come to the conclusion that life has inherent value. I guess this means they’ll soon be picketing Planned Parenthood clinics. Thank God. Praise Jesus. Finally the organizations that pretend to care about black civil rights have decided to defend the most important civil right of all.
In New York, a black child is more likely to be aborted than born. Did you get that? More likely to be aborted than born. In the country's biggest city, there are more black children discarded in waste buckets and toilets than there are placed in nurseries at the maternity ward.
And cops are the ones dehumanizing black people?
Hundreds of white abortion doctors have become millionaires by killing black babies. Moreover, the abortionist murders black children and never faces so much as a grand jury proceeding. No, all he gets is a fat paycheck and a 'God bless you' from Barack Obama. Oh, and 500 million bucks from the federal government.
Black teens are sometimes shot by police when they fall into a life of violence and crime. But black infants are dismembered, decapitated, and poisoned just for falling into life in the first place.
Now let's take this deeper. As horrific as Planned Parenthood's ethnic cleansing is, the full story is much bigger. Side note: please don't take my ethnic cleansing remark to mean that Planned Parenthood is attempting to wipe out the black race for the sake of quenching their racist urges. I don't believe that for a moment. They're just wiping out the black race for the sake of making a quick buck. This is a holocaust for profit, which makes abortionists like Nazis, but in some ways worse.
Regardless, black people aren't just suffering individualized dehumanization and extermination at the hands of the Infanticide Industry; they are being fundamentally weakened as a race, as a people, and as a culture by the mass slaughter of the younger generations.
At the bottom of every social ill among any and every group you will find the deterioration of the family unit. From poor and black to rich and white to every combination in between, we are all at some stage of collective self destruction because we have all allowed the foundation of the nuclear family to decay. But for black Americans the situation is far worse, the disease is more advanced, and the prognosis is much bleaker.
We've all heard the numbers. Some 70 percent of black kids are born out of wedlock. A full 50 percent or more grow up in fatherless homes, and for black children in the inner city, that number is close to 90 percent. Yes, you read that right. That's 90 percent. I'm no anthropologist, but I think it's safe to say that no group ever before in human history has seen its family structure plummet into such deep disarray. This is one of humanity's greatest tragedies, and it is greeted mostly with silence.
Abortion has helped create this situation as it is simultaneously created by it. It both fuels and is fueled by the destruction of the family unit. The two feed each other, like a two headed beast that eats itself from both ends. Because of abortion, there are fewer black men and women available to make a difference. Fewer around to raise families. Fewer in existence to right the wrongs and steer the ship. Because of abortion, the sense that life is worthless has taken hold across the country, but perhaps especially in the hearts of those whose communities are more greatly impacted by it. Because of abortion, there is more death and discord, more grief, more loss. Because of abortion, the idea that black lives don't matter settles into the minds of many, especially the black mothers who are so much more likely to decide to have their own children exterminated.
And just as these things happen because of abortion, abortion happens because of these things.
It's a sad tale. Unbearable to think about, really. And maybe that's why we don't think about it.
But we need to think about it.
We need to do something about it.
Black lives matter. Yes, they do. All life matters. All life is sacred. Black or white. Born or unborn. All life.
So if our society is ready to wave that banner and fight that fight, I will march alongside it. And with a warm smile and tears of joy, I will embrace all of these newcomers to the pro-life cause.
Welcome, friends. Glad to finally have you. Now let's get down to business.
We've got work to do.
