Black Lives Matter…Well Sort Of

 In Abortion, black genocide, civil rights, naacp, news, news media, planned parenthood, racism

We live in a hashtag world. It’s much easier to deal with a few emotionally charged words than the fact that those words misrepresent reality.

#BlackLivesMatter. Well, it depends. This whole media-driven frenzy pretends that the annual deaths of 400 lives (of any race or ethnicity) at the hands of police is the civil rights injustice of our day. No one deserves to die, but some put themselves into situations where their own reckless decisions lead to untimely deaths (e.g. Michael Brown). And then, there are tragic cases like Eric Garner’s that deserve the reaction of disgust and indignation. How could there be no verdict against the officer who, basically, strangled the husband and father?

Liberal feminists, who never miss an opportunity to spread their pro-abortion religion, have injected their nonsense into issues of urban violence. “Freedom from violence is #reprojustice. #HandsUpDontShoot #BlackLivesMatter #Ferguson” tweets NARAL. Reproductive Justice (or #reprojustice), by the way, is the pathetic euphemism for abortion in the black community, where the abortion rate is 5 times higher than among whites. Abortion is the ultimate violence with brutality that is always hidden by a news media desperate to avoid the Emmett Till effect. Planned Parenthood, the leading killer of black lives which apparently don’t matter, had to show how much it “values” life by tweeting: “Today we reflect on #Ferguson, and the responsibility we all share to ensure safe communities for our youth and families. #BlackLivesMatter.”

#BlackLivesMatter #AllLivesMatterToo bad they didn’t value the life of Tonya Reaves, a young black mother left to die by bleeding to death for 5.5 hours in one of their Chicago abortion mills (by a white abortionist, no less). The abortionist didn’t want to be bothered with calling 911. Tonya’s loss of life wasn’t an emergency; her life didn’t matter. I don’t recall President Obama doing the whole “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” spiel. He has two lovely daughters, to which he once proclaimed: “If they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.” You mean, like Tonya? She was killed inside of a Planned Parenthood abortion center. Apparently, black lives matter only when gun violence ends lives, not when abortion violence takes them inside the walls of his most prized abortion chain.

This whole #BlackLivesMatter movement is quite male-centric. Liberal feminists hate “patriarchy” but apparently only get really upset when black males are killed. They’re not bothered at all by the black women who are killed in botched abortions, like 22 year old Lakisha Wilson, killed by a self-policing late-term abortionist. Qualecia James, a 7-month pregnant mother of a 4 year old, was gunned down. In numerous studies, including one from the CDC, “Homicide was found to be a leading cause of pregnancy-associated injury deaths among women…Risk factors included age younger than 20 years, Black race, and late or no prenatal care.”

No riots. No die-ins. No protests. Absolutely no mainstream media coverage. The lives of black women, snuffed out by real injustice and violence, have been completely ignored and treated with nothing but silence.

Until this week, sort of.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has tweeted about a list of 76 black individuals, from 1999 to the present, who have been shot by cops while unarmed. And the list actually includes a handful of females! Well, I don’t think it actually bolsters this increasingly reality-detached cause by including Miriam Carey on the list. She was the 34 year old black Connecticut woman who rammed a barricade at the White House gate area and then led police on a high-speed chase around the Capitol. She was “unarmed” with an Infiniti sedan as her weapon. Despite numerous attempts of Capitol Hill police, secret service and other authorities to stop her, she was killed by gunfire because of her actions. According to an FBI briefing, she “had postpartum depression, an injury to her head and a family history of schizophrenia.”

She put countless people in harm’s way and endangered the life of her 1 year old daughter, who was in the car with her. But, sure, let’s DEATH-OF-THE-UNARMEDput her on a list declaring racial injustice and police brutality.

This list, by the way, amounts to 5 lost lives every year due to this “massive epidemic” of police brutality. Compare that to 363,705 black lives violently slaughtered, every year, in the name of “reproductive justice”. Abortion, not cop-caused deaths, is the number one killer of black lives.

Hands up! Don’t Shoot? Don’t worry. The millions of unarmed black lives, who have been aborted in the womb, won’t have to face that grossly over-exaggerated racial injustice of excessive police force. They’ve already faced the ultimate racial violence for being, as Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber described them, “marginal children”.

Racialists don’t care about context, don’t care about evidence, don’t care about truth. They see an opportunity to exploit and divide so they fuel racial fires.

Of course black lives matter. All lives matter. But you can’t pick and choose when they matter.

          You’re ultimately making the author’s point. Black lives do matter, and should, under all circumstances. Perhaps this requires some breaking down. As African-Americans, we are upholding a double-standard when we protest that black lives matters in some cases, but not in all. When corrupt police officers kill innocent black men, many take to the streets and unleash their fury. But we don’t seem to be so disturbed by the alarming homicidal rates in cities like Chicago, or even bother to recognize the greater war going on in the womb. It’s no secret that most Planned Parenthood clinics are conveniently located in lower income neighborhoods, which is why a high number of aborted children are African-American. So yes, there is a problem. Blacks are being murdered, from across the cop car to the streets to the womb. And each situation should move our conscience because as the hashtag says, #BlackLivesMatter.

      You’re falling into the filter trap. There is an assigned filter or lens through which all things that matter are supposed to be viewed according to the self appointed “leaders” in movements and causes. Take the filter off and:

      1. Don’t let anyone make up your mind for you
      2. Read the facts even if they challenge the preconceived claims (like the stats of aborted black babies. White cops killing blacks vs. community murder rates)
      3. Question the self appointed leaders claims and positions. What do they get out of it, out of you and everyone believing/accepting it? Does their reward lead to a better life for you or them in terms of power and money?
      4. Before calling someone ignorant open your own mind and fact check the claims of the person then see if they were correct. In this case Mr. Bomberger used actual stats and names all verifiable.
