Still More Disturbing Evidence that Black Lives Don’t Matter to BLM

The continuing hypocrisy of Black Lives Matter was displayed vividly over the past weekend–BLM declared solidarity with Hamas but said nothing about a slew of murders and shootings targeting black communities.

There were at least 11 mass shootings in the country over the weekend that combined left at least 17 people dead and 35 more wounded, according to CNN reporting and an analysis of data from Gun Violence Archive (GVA), local media and police reports.

I found it curious that none of the reporting made any mention about the race of the victims or the perpetrators. Left me wondering so I did some digging. It appears that the majority of these mass shootings involved black Americans as perpetrators or victims.

Chicago, Illinois:

At least 55 people were shot across Chicago over the weekend, 12 of them fatally, including a 15-year-old boy who was shot in the head on the front porch of a home in Lawndale, and three double homicides.

These shootings took place in predominantly black neighborhoods.

    Of course. Much political and social capital has been squandered in recent years, all in an attempt to adumbrate the singular reality that the deeply engrained social pathologies in the “black community” have more to do with their failure to thrive than white systemic racism does. We, meaning white America, cannot help them with this no matter how much self abnegation we indulge in. Black America needs to adopt standards of belief and behavior that are socially, culturally, and economically functional and they need to teach their children those values. I have seen this happen with a certain fragment of that demographic, but it needs to happen more widely. This may be offensive to some readers, but there is truth in it.

    Do blacks themselves need to be uniquely empowered (and protected) to speak up against black on black violence? What has prevented the peace-seeking black community members from taking charge of their own neighborhoods.

    What Reign of Terror are they living under that those of us outside these communities do not understand.

    Latino gangs terrorize latino communities as well. The violent tyranny of the few against the decent lives of the many is very, very wrong and should not exist in our country. But it is a daily reality in our rapidly devolving inner city neighborhoods.

      These minority neighborhoods can’t have it both ways:
      They can’t object to successful methods like stop and frisk and then complain
      about crime. “Snitches get stiches” is another “cute” saying encouraging crime.
      After a time trying to help people who won’t help themselves and are often openly hostile, the cops grow cynical and less proactive; can you blame them?
      Because it’s “racist” to criticize any form of minority behavior, there can not be an honest discussion about solutions to this problem and the beat goes on.
      People (including the self-hating, phony “guilty” white liberals, BTW) who can live in segregated neighborhoods continue to live in segregated neighborhoods.
      I used to live in CT – very liberal blue state – totally segregated; BLM signs on the “right” lawns.

        Yes here in Mpls the same blue haired tattooed
        Nose ring wokes make up a large majority of
        The BLM protests. The obligatory signs festoon
        Whole neighborhoods. Do they march or picket
        The areas where the majority of the shootings occur
        And whose victims are all black? Ha! Too dangerous.
        The near North side aka Nomi has had continuous
        Gunfire for near 1200 days. Now they have running
        Gun battles with “Ak” type fully automatic weapons.
        It’s become a tragedy writ large. Not a virtue
        Signal to be seen.

    Yes, it’s hard to believe that so many are taken in by the rhetoric of Black Lives Matter when there’s evidence on a near-daily basis of black-on-black violence and murder. It’s truly a crime that so-called leaders don’t decry it and demand a call to action for it to stop, a crime that there’s so little public discourse about underclass blacks basically exterminating each other with impunity. It’s a taboo subject, and can’t be broached without accusations of racism. We only hear righteous outrage when a member of the black underclass is killed by a cop.

  4. Deap says:

    Why does the charge of “racism” cause so many to immediately recoil and retreat? It is just a word, yet it has risen to weaponized effectiveness.

    What does this word trigger in so many people who will immediately back down and retreat. Pretty powerful tool -until more don’t blink and don’t stand down at its mere mention.

    Always felt there was an implied threat of “black violence’ that accompanied every one of Obama’s political moves. We need to cleanse that threat out of our own psyches or else this nation will be held hostage by a mere word.

    • Deap says:

      Isn’t this an interesting bit of Democrat deja vu, including charges of rigged voting machines in 2008 the GOP would use to prevent Obama from winning and thereby triggering a Second Civil War — “the streets will run with blood….if Obama loses……..”

      Thanks to two great political pundits – Erica Jong and Jane Fonda. They did capture the zeitgeist of the times however, and continue to do so. The threat of black violence, if you don’t do what we went.

      Fast forward to 2020 – and the world yet again feared “the streets would run with blood”, but this if Trump won re-election and Democrat Biden did not win.

      But this time it bloody well appears it was the Democrats who rigged the voting processes. Yet again it appears it is the Democrats accusing the GOP of what they were already doing themselves.

  5. Fred says:

    The Black Liberation Movement has made millionaires out of their grifter leaders and enabled the left to remain in power in every city in which rioting occurred. Their local opposition has been cleansed or cowed into submission. The movement continues its success as seen by its adoption by corporations seeking to reduce the power and influence of middle class Americans and by politicians seeking to entrence their power electorally.

    Some people who were black were shot by others who were black? Quit saying that, you, you, what’s the word: racist!; as none of that has been proved in court. Did any of these ‘leaders’ care about all those shootings in the Sanctuary City of Chicago when President Hope and Change was in charge? (2016)
    Total shootings 4379 Shot and wounded 3664 Shot and killed: 715
    Assailant race by percentage

    Black 12.6% White 1% Other 6.1% “Unknown” 80.3%
    On a bright note Chicago is now run by a Black Lesbian married to a white Woman, who has her own job in the city. Take that Monty Hall, I mean Tamany Hall.

  6. Some Dude says:

    Whoa: you’re saying the left behaves hypocritically and is willing to take losses in order to get what they want?

    Such insight!

    Ethnic hypocrisy is the ancient problem here, but this focus on contemporary black antics obscures the issue and is simply another avoidance strategy.

    The recent missile duel in the eastern Mediterranean has shown that white conservatives are more willing to stand up for the safety of non- or dual-citizens overseas than they are for safety of their own white constituents, whom they refuse even to name.

    Why do you think that is?

  7. blue peacock says:

    BLM is a private organization. Why is the State Dept flying their flag at US embassies/consulates?

    Is BLM using their new found prominence to self-aggrandize?

    How much have black leaders feathered their own nest while using “racism” as a cudgel to further their political ambitions?

    There is nothing wrong with Obama with his financial success to buy in predominantly white Martha’s Vineyard. The question that blacks should ask however is are those leaders who use racism and race to gain political power doing much to alleviate the social and economic issues they face?

    There are many successful blacks in all walks of life. Why aren’t they celebrated and used as role models instead of someone like George Floyd?

    • Deap says:

      When you first went on the “BLM website” you immediately were linked to ActBlue – a fund-raising arm of the Democrat party. There was no independent or “private” donation link for BLM. Calling BLM “private” in this case would be a stretch for me after that initial experience with BLM.

      So the bigger question is, why is the State Dept etc pushing an arm of the Democrat Party fund-raising machine within government operations? Did BLM formally dissociate completely with ActBlue?

      • TV says:

        Because the State Dept., like the rest of the Democrat party, has accelerated faster and faster to the left.
        They’ve been selling out America for decades and now, like the rest of the Democrat party, the last mask has dropped.

  8. Alex says:

    Having grown up in Chicago and still living nearby I would say “predominantly black” neighborhoods is a media fiction, part of the narrative to displace the blame onto others than black. I assure you these are black neighborhoods, once white now ruined for generations. I have sympathy for blacks, so much so that I suggest we organize to supply as much ammo as possible to help them rid the hood of evil doers. Mostly 9mm, drop off crates in front of playgrounds and street corners so they can be easily found.

  9. optimax says:

    Larry’s point that BLM doesn’t care about Black lives is graphically shown and described by this Officer Tatum podcast (it’s short) of local newscasts, not shown by national news, of Black children murdered by Blacks.

    • Bill H. says:

      Not news, really. I’ve heard and read it many times. But this man is powerful, and he expresses himself in a very moving way. Thanks for the link.
