Did you know that more white people are killed by cops each year than black people? Not only that, more white people are killed by cops than by white representation among perpetrators of violent crime.
In other words, not only are more white people killed by cops each year, but disproportionately more white people are killed each year by cops. Even though disproportionately more black people commit violent crime than do white people.
By all relevant measures the police kill more white people each year than they do black people.
Okay, quick, name one white person killed by the cops in the past few years. Just one. I’ll wait.
Okay, I can’t either. And I study this stuff.
In this race-obsessed time, let’s face it, no one really cares if a white guy is killed by the cops. At least not from a public policy perspective.
Let’s face another rude fact: Black lives matter; white lives don’t.
Don’t believe me? Go to a Black Lives Matter rally, and try to suggest to someone there that, say, all lives matter. Shouldn’t be controversial, right? However, the snarling, sneering, violent hostility that you’ll encounter in reaction to that brief, unsubtly obvious assertion will rock you back on your heels.
All the leading candidates for the Democrat Party Presidential nomination agreed — either reluctantly or enthusiastically — that one shouldn’t say, “All lives matter.”
In other words, one of America’s two major political parties — the Democrat Party — does not endorse the notion that “all American lives matter.”
While both of America’s major political parties endorse, enthusiastically and unconditionally, the thought that black lives matter.
