I hate to be critical about the intelligence of the people that live in the United States, but are we all so stupid that we just accept what one person says without even checking to see if it true or not? If you want to know the truth, sometimes you have to do a little research. Allow me to get you started:
This is the Washington Post Police Shootings Database which is responsible for most of the racial issues facing America today. You see, this database fails to demonstrate the actual racial breakdown of America, and most importantly the racial breakdown where people are killed by police. This is where my research of this data began. If you open the web page and scroll down you will find some very interesting information relative to police shootings. The following heading: “Black Americans are killed at a much higher rate than White Americans” paints a picture of Law Enforcement Officers killing Black people because of the color of their skin. This is far from the truth and our politicians, educators, and those that influence others are negligent in allowing this farce to continue.
Although Black people are only 13% of the US Population in the cities most killings take place in Black people are 23 to 60% of the population, in some cities equal to or more than the White population. Yet, more white people are killed by police than Blacks.
Black people ARE NOT killed by police because they are Black. Black people are killed by police because they resist arrest or act a fool. Look at the history of those killed by police. George Floyd did not end up on the ground with a cop’s knee in his back because he cooperated. DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND! George Floyd should not have died and his death was while in the custody of a negligent cop, which is a whole bunch different than being shot by a cop. Would things of turned out better had Floyd of cooperated with officers?
The current racial unrest is being manipulated by racists making money off racism.
“Black Lives Matter” is not a champion of the Black People. BLM is a racist organization that had nothing to do with cases such as George Floyd. BLM got lucky because their name was made the place for Corporate America to donate millions of dollars demonstrating support for the Black cause hoping Black America would not burn their corporations to the ground. Black Lives Matter has done nothing beneficial to Black America, but they sure are loving the money they got.
You cannot defeat racism with racism; Giving to people based on the color of their skin will not solve the issues, fairness will. Give to those in need, fairly
You can disagree with me, but do the research before doing so. Feel free to prove me wrong. It will not hurt my feelings, not even a little bit if you can find a better answer than I provide. The truth is people are too quick to play the race card rather than seek the real reasons for the sufferings of the people. But there is one thing I am sure of. We as a people have got to move beyond skin color if we are ever to defeat racism.
Listen, I am aware my opinion is not popular and I know it angers some, but you do not have to share my opinion. But, to disagree with me requires you do the research to prove me wrong. I am 100% for the elimination of racism and I pray that one-day equality will be the way. What I seek by writing to this blog is informed interaction. People have got to quit being led by those that know less than they do.
