A great post and clever take on BLM

Black Lies Matter

By Willis Eschenbach / June 20, 2020

My cmnt: click Black Lies Matter (above) and go to the entire post by Willis. He notes that BLM is completely founded upon demonstrable lies. I’ve included the photo and quote by Booker T. Washington to entice you to read the rest of the post at his website Skating Under the Ice.

On this lovely Juneteenth day, I’d like to celebrate how far-sighted and prescient Mr. Booker T. Washington was. Over a hundred years ago, in his 1911 book My Larger Education, he perfectly described the situation today with Black Lives Matter and other related movements:

booker t washington

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

In fact we have an epidemic of black violence against white people.

In the light of those Juneteenth quotes, let me review the current state of play.

In 2018, there were over 600,000 violent incidents between black people and white people. [1] That’s far too many, obviously, but humanoids of all flavors are not uniformly peaceful. However, here’s the relevant part:

In nine out of ten of those 600,000+ incidents, black people were the offenders and white people were the victims of the violence.

Let me run that past you again so you can take it in. In 2018, the latest year for which we have records, in over 600,000 violent black|white incidents:

• Nine out of ten victims were white.

• Nine out of ten offenders were black

In other words, while there is indeed racism in America, the BLM-claimed and widely believed epidemic of violence against black people is not true in the slightest. There are no masses of white people out there roaming the nights and hunting down black people. There’s no concerted white effort to harm black people.

In fact, the exact opposite is true. There is a verifiable, factual epidemic of black violence against white people.

Note that I’m not complaining about that fact. I’m not giving any “poor me”. I’m just stating what is true.

So no, I’m not taking a knee to the BLM. First off, they endorse and practice violence. They include violent thugs who chant “Pigs in a blanket, fry’em like bacon”. They ambushed and killed policemen. They support rioting and arson.

Second, they are incurably racist, as Muhammad Ali Jr. pointed out above.

But more to the current point, the entire BLM movement is built around a lie. The lie that the BLM is built on is the false claim that there is an epidemic of white violence against black people.

Not only is that a lie, but it is a total inversion of the truth—there is an epidemic of black violence against white people.

And it’s not just an epidemic of black violence against white people. There’s an epidemic of black violence against everyone, including black people. For example, black men are only about 7% of the population … but they commit almost half of all murders. And most of those murdered by black men? Other black people.
