Walking in Memphis
The dark mythmaking of Democrats is costing young black Americans their lives.
It isn't a secret that the current thinking in faculty lounges is that laws and law enforcement create criminality and criminals and that laws are just tools used by white supremacists to keep people of color under control.
That's the root of CRT, by the way.
This is sort of a rerun of something I posted a couple of years ago, but due to the situation in Memphis, I am wondering (actually I never stopped) how many black people have been killed by police simply because the American left, for political advantage, created the myth that police are just out to kill black people, especially young black men, even if the police themselves are black (they are just tools of white supremacy).
Biden, the idiot spokesidentity known as KJP, and Democrats in general, continually blame the GOP for the situation at the border, stating that when a Republican recognizes reality and says out loud the border is effectively open, that causes people to storm the border more than the fact the border is effectively open.
Let's apply a little of that thought process to the situation in Memphis and other cities - ever with St. George of Floyd.
Could it be that when blacks are constantly told all police are corrupt and intend to kill them that might induce just a little fear and paranoia? I think most people feel a little anxiety when we get pulled over by law enforcement, but just imagine that for years you have been told (or in many cases, from birth) that the police are your enemy and will use any excuse to kill you - might that not make you want to resist or run away?
In nearly every instance, when the suspect - white or black - resists or runs away from police - white or black - the interaction ends badly for the suspect. The fact is that if George Floyd and Michael Brown had complied with police orders, both would still be alive today.
The only substantive connection between white America and the anger of black America is the fact that a government entity, consisting of generations of white progressives, is responsible for the conditions that exist within our black communities. Here are a few things I believe are logically defensible in support of my premise:
Government has made promises to black Americans that, as of today, remain unfulfilled. It was not the rest of America that did, even though the rest of America was expected to pay for those promises.
Government told black Americans that they were less than equal, in word and deed, that it was necessary for them to receive special treatment to succeed, mainly by reducing the standards black Americans would be required to meet and then tossing them into a competitive environment in no way for which they were prepared.
Government told black Americans the special treatment that was required could only come with the force of law that only government could provide.
Government told black Americans that the only way to eliminate discrimination is to discriminate even more – to increase the blame on white America.
Government told the black community it could protect them from crime, something it has failed spectacularly at doing.
Government locked black children in underperforming and unsafe schools, guaranteeing a poor or non-existent education.
Government told black women it could be a substitute for a husband, a father, and a partner when it never could, nor did it intend to be.
Government incentivized having children outside a two-parent family, by redefining having children as a means of generating income, providing a sliding scale of welfare that rewarded mothers based on the number of children they produced.
Government told black America that all they had do to overcome the oppression of white culture was to continue to vote for the political party that favored government and is favored by it, that being the Democrat Party – and yet, 60 years has passed since that Faustian bargain was made and little progress has been made.
Government has refused to correct the false narratives of police hunting young black men, simply because they are black, narratives proven false by hard data. Quite to the contrary, they are happy to allow the anger to fester because it uses the resulting chaos to its own advantage and to deflect attention and blame away from its own failures.
Given these facts, is it any wonder black Americans are angry?
I think it is perfectly rational they are. I get it. It is only natural to be angry at the entity that broke promises your life now depends upon.
The issue is that they are mad at the wrong people. Through their actions, government has put not only white America, but also the police of all races and ethnicities and other minorities, as well as the very same black Americans, in an exceedingly difficult, almost no-win, situation.
