...I'll start as boldly as I can
Black Lives Matter does not actually care about black lives. What they do care about is victimizing themselves to the this false pretense notion that all whites are racist and police officers are randomly executing unarmed black men on the street for no other reason but the color of their skin. The logic behind why I say this is because Black Lives Matter only brings hysteria and attention to white on black crimes, most of which involving law enforcement.
On July 5, 2016, Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old black man was shot and killed by police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Black Lives Matter brought this into an epidemic with utter hysteria and outcry. Liberal media in response began projecting this case on the headlines of every news station in the United States.
Additionally on July 5 and 6 — as these tragedies unfolded — at least 21 other black men were murdered across America most of which being black on black.
If Black Lives Matter really cared about black lives then why would they not even bring to attention that these 21 black men were killed while these events unfolded with Alton Sterling?
The answer is simple, Black Lives Matter will only raise hysteria and outcry to cases that will fit their agenda, supremacy and victim entitlement. The black on black homicide rate according to a 2013 FBI annual report was at 90%. If Black Lives Matter really cared about black lives then wouldn’t it make much more sense to focus on 90% of the real issue?
...The Liberal Perspective On The Police Brutality Epidemic
According to a recent census data, there are nearly 160 million more white people in America than there are black people. White people make up roughly 62 percent of the U.S. population but only about 49 percent of those who are killed by police officers. African Americans, however, account for 24 percent of those fatally shot and killed by the police despite being just 13 percent of the U.S. population. They concluded the analysis as being that means black Americans are 2.5 times as likely as white Americans to be shot and killed by police officers.
U.S. police officers have shot and killed the exact same number of unarmed white people as they have unarmed black people: But because the white population is approximately five times larger than the black population, that means that unarmed black Americans were five times as likely as unarmed white Americans to be shot and killed by a police officers.
The general go-to assumption is to conclude that blacks are being shot at a substantially higher rate than whites because law enforcement officers are racist.
...Let's Talk Facts
How is that 13% of the population is responsible for over 50% of all the murders here in the US for nearly 30 years? DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, black people committed 52% of homicides.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics in 2009, out of all violent crimes in which someone was charged, black Americans were charged with 62 percent of robberies, 57 percent of murders and 45 percent of assaults in the country’s 75 largest counties — despite the fact that black Americans made up just 15 percent of the population in those places.
"This table can be used for a number of interesting calculations. First, we find that during the 2012/2013 period, blacks committed an average of 560,600 violent crimes against whites, whereas whites committed only 99,403 such crimes against blacks. This means blacks were the attackers in 84.9 percent of the violent crimes involving blacks and whites."
Tell me why is it that in 2014 black Americans (13% of the population) are responsible for 51.3% of the murders that took place in our country along with 55.9% of robberies?
...Think With Some Logic
Put that into perspective right now. The black population is about five times less than white people in America and, yet, they consistently carry out a larger share of the crimes. Given this rate, it’s no wonder why blacks are being shot by law enforcement for not so innocent reasons.
Doesn't common sense tell you that police might be shooting black Americans at a higher rate because they commit a substantially higher amount of violent crime in this country?
“Blacks are three times as likely to be killed by cops as are whites, on a per-capita basis,” said Dr. Moskos of John Jay. But part of that is because of crime in predominantly black neighborhoods.
“Blacks are four or five times as likely to be victims of homicides, and they are five times as likely to feloniously kill a cop,”
...Is There Racial Bias Within Law Enforcement?
To that general question, yes there is racial bias. We have seen this time and time again. Police officers who commit racist acts are followed up with internal affair investigations and dealt with to the highest extent of the law.

This idea that white police officers are just arbitrarly executing black people on the street for no other reason than the color of their skin is just absolutely false.
A 2015 study by a University of California at Davis researcher concluded there was “no relationship” between crime rates by race and racial bias in police killings.
There is absolutely no law in this country that is racist with intent. Show me a police officer who commits racist act and isn't dealt with. Example being what we witnessed in South Carolina where that police officer shot a suspect running away in the back.
...Media Manipulates the Naive
Do you trust CNN?
This chick just told us that only white people can be racist...
Colin Kaepernick situation..
All that does is create an environment in which every obstacle this country faces in regards to this race/police brutality war is some faceless group out there in the ether who’s simply out to get them because of the color of their skin. If anything this just creates more issues and hostility. The only thing that Colin Kaepernick managed to do is to spread influential hate towards our country. Advocates that are actually doing something, that have good intentions to correct this crisis we are having will never be successful in that environment. All it does is set the issue backwards.
"Innocent unarmed teenager..." "Murdered"
Deemed justified. Michael Brown was nothing but a thug.
If you're getting your information solely from the media, then you are just a mindless puppet. Seek your information from factual sources and seek out multiple sources. Look at both sides from an unbiased perspective and formulate your opinion.
Am I "racist" for throwing out these facts? I think this has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with culture. Black Lives Matter and liberal media tries to convince white people that they are all racist by default. You decide to speak against this vicious savage "cop-killing" movement and all of a sudden you're "privileged" white supremacist. When cops are being hunted down and killed within the name of Black Lives Matter... It's time to speak out.
This ridiculous idea that you can craft a narrative based on this notion that “there just must be racist cops killing innocent black people and getting away with it” has absolutely no solidifying grounds. It's just is not statistically true no matter how you manipulate the data.
R.I.P. to these Police Officers that have been murdered due to this vile movement.
DPD Senior Cpl. Lorne Ahrens, age 48, who had been with the department since 2002.
DPD Officer Michael Krol, 40, who had been with the department since 2007.
DPD Sgt. Michael Smith, 55, a former Army Ranger who had been with the department since 1989.

DPD Officer Patricio "Patrick" Zamarripa, 32, a former Navy sailor and Iraq War veteran who had been with the department since 2011.
...Baton Rouge Shooting
Jackson, 32, was burdened by the weight of of the nation’s unrest and turned to Facebook to share his feelings on what it was like to be a black police officer in a city that had suddenly become a flashpoint in the national conversation on race and justice.
“In uniform I get nasty, hateful looks and out of uniform some consider me a threat,” he wrote shortly after Alton Sterling was fatally shot by police outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge.
But Jackson was hopeful that his community would heal.
“Please don't let hate infect your heart. The city must and will get better."
Jackson had been working at the Baton Rouge Police Department for 10 years and just 10 months prior to his death, he and his wife celebrated the birth of their first child, a son.
According to Jackson’s uncle, Charles Cavalier, Jackson cried when he found out he would be having a son.
“He was so excited, you know. The baby looks just like him,” Cavalier told WAFB.
He also loved traveling, the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans, and his job, Cavalier said.
Garafola, 45, had worked at the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office for 24 years and was selected as the civil deputy of the month in January 2013. On the morning of the fatal ambush, his shift was supposed to end at 8 a.m. He was killed approximately half an hour later, at 8:30 a.m.
He leaves behind a wife and four children — a 21-year-old son, a 15-year-old daughter, a 12-year-old son and a 7-year-old daughter.
“He was a great guy,” his wife, Tonja Garafola, told the Advocate. “Not just a great law enforcement officer, but a great husband and great father. He didn’t deserve this. He always helped everybody.”
He also loved tinkering — fixing and building things, such as cars. His latest project was a car that he was working on to give to his 15-year-old daughter when she learned to drive.
Garafola’s brother, Brett Garafola, wrote on Facebook, "Brad, I love you very much my brother. I respect and appreciate everything you did for us, this city, and your job to protect and serve."
A former Marine and Black Hawk crew chief in the Army, Gerald, 41, had graduated from the Baton Rouge Police Academy in March. According to his wife, Dechia Badeaux Gerald, he had been promoted to work on his own less than two weeks before he was killed.
Even after serving three tours in Iraq, Gerald wasn’t ready to give up working on the front line, said his friend and fellow police officer Ryan Cabral.
“Matt was born to protect those who needed protection,” Cabral told CNN.
He enjoyed spending time with his wife and two young daughters, as well as fishing on his bass boat, Cabral said.
Another friend, Nick Lambert, who served with Gerald in the Army, told the Washington Post:
“After three tours, not a scratch on him. Comes back home, chooses a job to serve others, and this is what our society does?” Lambert said. “It’s a coward’s way to make a statement.”
