When Black Lives Don't Matter

When Black Lives Don't Matter
By Daniel Greenfield

The slogan of the wave of Ferguson protests is "Black Lives Matter." But progressives are far more interested in toting around the corpse of Michael Brown to their protests than in the living man he was.

Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and countless others like them grew up in broken families, their lives haunted by fathers and stepfathers with gang ties. The only masculine culture they had was that of the thug and that culture eventually killed them.

Criminal culture is even more fatal to criminals than it is to their victims. If you attack enough people, eventually one of them will fight back. Eventually one of them will kill you.

It wasn't Darren Wilson who decided that black lives don't matter. Michael Brown did. He did not grow up with a sense that his life was worth anything more than violent posturing could make of it. Just like Martin, that violent posturing eventually killed him.

Rappers recorded a tribute song to Michael Brown titled, "Don't Shoot." But Brown's own songs had a different theme with lyrics like "My favorite part of killing people is when they hit the ground."

Black criminals victimize other black people first. The Ferguson looters went after businesses serving the black community and businesses owned by black people. That's the way it always is.

Which black lives really matter in Missouri; the lives of criminals shot by police officers or the black lives taken by criminals?

Missouri has a black homicide rate that is nearly double the nationwide homicide rate for black people. And it's nearly six times higher than the overall murder rate in Missouri.

If the media were really outraged by lost black lives, they would be outraged by those numbers. If the protesters really wanted to say that black lives matter, they would fight those murder rates instead of contributing to them with their protests.

The story of Missouri's murder rate is the story of the left. From the beginning to the end of the 1960s, murder rates doubled, rapes, robberies and car thefts doubled, assaults tripled and thefts quadrupled.

A decade in which America changed left a bloody trail of death and misery in its wake. The victims of the left's transformation of America filled the gutters, morgues, prisons and hospitals.

When Giuliani pointed out that the police were there to protect black people, he was asserting that black lives matter. And unlike every single one of his self-righteous critics, he actually saved black lives.

The decision of his Socialist successor, Bill de Blasio, to move criminals back into housing projects was a statement that they don't. Housing projects in the pre-Giuliani era belonged to drug dealers. Getting criminals out of housing projects saved black lives, especially those of children.

The "Black Lives Matter" protesters claim that there's a crisis of police shootings. There isn't. There is a crisis of young black men shooting each other.

After the shooting of drug dealer Derrick Jones, the NAACP breathlessly reported that 37 black people were shot by police in Oakland over four years. Meanwhile there were 1,594 shooting victims in Oakland in one year.

The vast majority of the perpetrators were black. The majority of murder victims were young black men. So were their killers.

The leading cause of death for young black men is murder. The perpetrators are other young black men.

If black lives really mattered, then the life of a young black man shot down by a criminal would matter at least as much as Michael Brown. But those black lives don't matter.

The progressive Ferguson protesters not only don't care about them, but they want to take more black lives by empowering criminals and crippling the police.

The gang is to the black community as the cartel is to lawless parts of Mexico, except that the American equivalents of the Narcocorrido, the songs glamorizing cartel drug dealers, are distributed by major music labels and their performers are invited to the White House.

While Mexico tries to fight drug and gang music, American progressives make it mainstream.

Gang culture in Black America, which is responsible for most of the gun violence in the country, isn't the work of a few thugs in a burned out building; it's promoted by progressives in the entertainment industry. The black lives taken by its glamorization of drug dealing and violent killing also don't matter.

You don't show that black lives matter by supporting criminal control over entire black neighborhoods. When you fight the criminals who are taking black lives, when you roll back crime, then you show that black lives really matter. When you help criminals you are announcing that black lives don't matter.

Despite its self-righteousness about black lives mattering, the left isn't any good at saving them. It is however really good at taking them. Planned Parenthood's black outreach arm announced on Twitter that it was joining the Ferguson protests because #BlackLivesMatter.

More African-American lives were ended at abortion clinics in the United States than anywhere else. But those black lives also don't matter.

The 6,000 black people murdered in one year don't matter. The 400,000 black babies killed in one year don't matter.

Does a black man have to be killed by a white cop for his life to matter to the left? That's the only conclusion that can be drawn from Ferguson.

To the #BlackLivesMatter crowd, the furious white hipsters crowding malls and staging die-ins, black lives only matter when they feed their own political agendas, their grudges and their own egos.

If black lives really mattered to the left, it would not have built an entire industry, an entire culture and an entire political movement around taking them.

Progressives only care about black people when they're using them as weapons. For black lives to matter to them, they have to be dead at the hands of a white man. For black unemployment to matter to them, they have to be able to blame it on Republicans. Black poverty, black homelessness only matter to them when they can cash in on a social justice solution that doesn't fix the problem.

The rest of the time they don't pay attention and don't care.

Black people exist for the political convenience of progressives. Black lives don't matter to them except when they can make use of them. The master-slave relationship has shifted from the plantation to the poll inflating the self-esteem and power of the masters while destroying the lives of their slaves.

The Ferguson protests are not about saving black lives, but promoting the pro-crime politics that take them. Its message is that all black people are criminals and have to be protected from law enforcement. By turning Michael Brown into the ubiquitous black man, the left reveals how racist it really is.

If black lives truly matter, then they matter when the conditions of their misery can't be blamed on white people. If black lives truly mattered to the protesters, they would fight crime instead of supporting the criminals taking black lives.

My city's police chief is now leading Ferguson protests (granted, they're just disruptive and annoying; no violence yet), whilst the mayor is encouraging it. That paints a scary picture as to where my city and its law enforcement is heading.

It is so obvious that evil is now good and good evil. The media has to be just rolling their hands together and salivating about how well the whole plan is coming together. This plan of the left is really producing its fruit - rotten fruit!

All I can think about is the horror the lost will face when they are standing before the Just Judge, Jesus Christ and they learn that they have been duped. They have been lied to for so long that it's now the truth.

It wont be long before those who try to save lives by upholding the law, throw in the towel because of how backward the system has become.

Excellent. Was thinking the other day, 51% of precious black babies are destroyed in the womb...but yet, no protests for that. It's just peachy, apparently.

Accurate. Brilliant. Incisive. :thumbup
It is!
I wish more of this type of commentary would make it into the news streams.
Just as an aside to this, or an added note, there is good that is happening that needs to be talked about as well. This link is an article from Christian News Network about a young black man helping to clean up the streets (literally) after the rioting. He wants to become a police officer.

Great story Mary, but sadly it does not fit the narrative of our liberal media.
The truth no longer matters in the American media, it is not about the issue it is about the revolution.

AMEN maryrae!!! God is the God of possibilities and with God as the center of a person's life, as He is for this young man, there would be a revolution of peace in the streets of big cities to small towns. It is so unfortunate that He has been removed from public view, I.e. schools, courthouses or movies/shows portraying Him as an evil "principal" wanting to take away all fun....:ohno. So many of the young people protesting have no knowledge of God through the framework of family and church. They've been taught from birth that this is their lot in life and to grab what they can while they can.

Praying for a revival to sweep across America and open the eyes of those blinded to God's love for them. To see Him as the loving Father He truly is and a not a Being waiting to smack them down. I ask this in the name of Jesus and bind the evil that seeks to destroy them, Amen.....:pray:

These thugs sound just like the sort of folk that God loves, and whom Jesus died for. They live in darkness. I pray someone will stand up in their community and let the light of the glorious gospel shine through with many finding our Saviour.

Many of us are not black. We are also not the strongest, fastest, smartest, wisest, biggest, most admired or loved. But it does not bother us either. We are not reduced because someone is more beautiful, or well known than we are. We do not feel unappreciated because we are not special. We are the silent majority. We are comprised of caucasian, black, asian, Indian, and many other backgrounds. We notice the difference, but are not alarmed by that difference.

We do not strive to correct perception of our value to others. We are not harmed by being ignored or sometimes even being blamed for humanity's failures. The world hates that about us. They try to force us into thinking their way. We refuse. They want to pique us into accepting tiny facts will generate an overall conclusion, hoping we too will buy into their vain imaginings, but we will not.

Were the correction of man's thinking up to us, we would have to produce a superior response to the world's lies and manipulations, but we are not commissioned to do so. We are just to love the Truth and live by it's conclusions.

If only those who focus on what they perceive as rejection could see the world as we see it, they could relax and enjoy the fact that the world's test is learning it is not about us, it is about how we react to what is around us.

Then that police chief is part of the problem, not a part of the solution. He needs to be fired. There's no place for that racism anywhere. :tsk:

It's sad but true, but many already have. It's like evil has a free hand to run wild. Almost like the restrainer has been restrained! :shocked Praying God takes us out of this Hell hole called Earth soon in the rapture. It is disgusting and I want no part of it anymore. :((

I'm ready for the eternal home called Heaven!! :yeah:

I agree. I found out the mayor was also leading the march. She claims that 'her' people were deprived of justice when Officer Wilson was not indicted, and said that she's not being racist- just describing the "American experience". The deputy mayor organized a 'conversation' about racism (held at a Baptist church, oddly).

:frust:

Sorry for the threadjack. :)
