The Strange 'Black Lives Matter' Movement
By Rachel Alexander, on August 11th, 2015
The Black Lives Matter movement is a bizarre new phenomenon that doesn't make a
whole lot of sense. Instead of addressing real issues of racism, the activists
focus on a few incidents where a black person has gotten into a deadly
confrontation with law enforcement -- but where there doesn't appear to have
been any racism. In many of the incidents, the officers themselves were black
or Hispanic. The high-profile accusations and scrutiny have resulted in ruining
the careers and reputations of many law enforcement officers, who are often
forced to resign, subsequently facing civil lawsuits and even criminal charges......
Privilege and Preference
By John C. Velisek USN Ret, on August 10th, 2015
Media and Democrats have pushed the idea that blacks suffer discrimination at
the hands of whites, in particular white policemen who they say are all too
happy to shoot a black man to death. The actual numbers do not bear this out,
and police are in a position of being accused of racial discrimination no
matter what they do. This week alone, a black woman tried screaming rape when
pulled over, and was only found to be lying when the dash cam video showed
nothing like that had occurred. This same black woman also was a professor at
the local college. Perhaps body cameras are a good idea, just to keep things
like this from happening. But the question is, why do things like this happen?
A good part of it is based on the leftist ideology of today in which the white
man and America in general are blamed for the breakdown of the leftists own collectivism.
The race based preferences forced on the people by the leftists who tell us
they know better allow such groups as "Black Lives Matter" to be
continually outraged and the excuse to lash out at those who disagree. The
media and many politicians are complicit in the damage done by such groups as
well. Black liberation theology is the scapegoat used by many as a pathway to
victimhood, and a demand for handouts to make things better.......
