I noticed this on Twitter earlier today:
Isn’t that swell? What a question, indeed. I’m sure Mr. Bell firmly believes this is an intelligent and eye-opening question for America. It should give us pause to look deep within ourselves. You first, Mr. Bell.
Trayvon Martin was portrayed in the media as a 13-year-old kid in a football uniform and much smaller than he was when he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman. The civil rights crew, under the “leadership” of Al Sharpton couldn’t get to Florida quick enough to cause too much damage. Never fear though because not long after the Martin/Zimmerman situation, the nation was introduced to Mike Brown.
Brown – over 6 feet tall and 300 pounds plus – had just strong-arm robbed a convenience store moments before and caught on video. The call went out with a description of the perpetrators. Officer Darren Wilson responded to the call because he thought he saw two men resembling the description. Turns out he was right and attempted to stop and question the individuals.
We now know that from the beginning, Brown (described by the media as a “gentle giant”), attempted to wrestle with and procure Officer Wilson’s gun. He apparently punched Wilson in the face because there was blood on Wilson’s head, pants, and inside the door. Wilson maintained the hold on his gun and Brown walked away.
As it turns out, Brown was not standing there with his back to Wilson. Brown had no wounds at all on his back. All bullet wounds came from the front, with the final and fatal shot hitting him near the top of the head. This indicates that he was bent over toward Wilson and as Wilson (and witnesses) testified, Brown was actually attempting to bum-rush him. Even Eric Holder’s DOJ could not find any reason to prosecute Wilson after he was cleared of any potential charges.
The latest victim the media has chosen hold up for white on black racism in America is Freddie Gray. He was chased down by several police officers in Baltimore and led to a waiting police van for transport. When he got into the van, he seemed to be okay. When they took him out of the van, he was not. He died from a spinal injury.
We don’t know how it happened but at least one suspect also being transported said that it sounded like Gray was trying to hurt himself during the ride to the police station. Gray also had a very long rap sheet that tied him to the drug scene.
The reality for individuals like Kamau Bell is that facts don’t really matter. Hyperbole, emotional virtue, and political correctness matter.
I’ll remind readers that a person of color police officer took the life of white Dillon Taylor of Utah about a week after Mike Brown was shot and killed. No riots, no real news coverage. It’s all about trying to create the narrative that blacks are being hunted.
There is a tremendous amount of black on white crime in the United States that goes under or unreported. I’m sure Mr. Bell would tell us that the “rage” the black community feels (because of entrenched racism of whites), has bubbled over into society. I heard these same type of remarks surrounding the Rodney King situation.
There are too many black (and white) apologists for a certain segment of the black community. These blacks are routinely given a pass for their criminal behavior and attitude towards white people in general.
“The rate of black on white rape is like 50 to 1…the numbers from federal crime stats that are published each year, buried and totally ignored.”
Here’s a page that is dedicated as a memorial to all the white people killed by blacks in 2014 alone. The page is run by a group considered to be “racist” by Southern Poverty Law, which, in and of itself is a racist organization. The information though is verifiable for anyone who would like to take the time disprove it. Good luck with that.
Black conservative Jason L. Riley notes that the growing problem of increasing crime really began with Justice Earl Warren’s Supreme Court (SCOTUS), in the 1960s. Warren, a Republican, was appointed by Richard M. Nixon (Republican), and had previously been governor of California. The decisions made by the Warren SCOTUS (1953 to 1969), began to destroy the criminal justice system by being way too lenient on criminals in general. Since then, criminals and crime have risen exponentially.
People like Kamau Bell want us to believe that blacks are being unfairly targeted in society by whites and law enforcement because of entrenched racism of whites toward blacks. The facts state otherwise.
“High rates of black violence in the late twentieth century are a matter of historical fact, not bigoted imagination…The trends reached their peak not in the land of Jim Crow but in the more civilized North, and not in the age of segregation but in the decades that saw the rise of civil rights for African Americans — and of African American control of city governments.
“The left wants to blame these outcomes on racial animus and ‘the system,’ but blacks have long been part of running that system. Black crime and incarceration rates spiked in the 1970s and ’80s in cities such as Baltimore, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Washington under black mayors and black police chiefs. Some of the most violent cities in the United States today are run by blacks.”
The tragedy here is that individuals like Kamua Bell won’t even bother to learn the truth because it’s inconvenient. Truth opposes the false narrative they prefer to believe.
Kamau Bell’s question noted above isn’t even the right question to ask. He is essentially saying that it is “okay” for roving groups of blacks to loot, destroy, and even harm innocent white people because America is racist. That means that all whites become targets and “oh well, you built that,” is what Bell would say.
To hear the left tell it, whites are privileged. I guess that’s why there is so much black on white violence in America and most of it goes completely unnoticed by the media. Way to go, Mr. Bell. You, along with other race-baiters, continue to provide reasons for some blacks to continue to be part of the problem.
