We’re going to talk about race, and that means we have to do some prefacing -– otherwise, we’ll be tarred and feathered by left-wing cry-bullies. Any time you take an oppressed group of people, and do not destroy them altogether as Hitler attempted to do to the Jews and as Muslims in Egypt are trying to do to the Christian population – that population will adopt an ethic of pragmatism and rebound heartily.
This is what happened with the black community in America. That is, up until the 1930s when New Deal social programs kicked off a century of dependence on the Democratic party. Since then, black fathers have been replaced by the welfare state, and academia has worked overtime with the entertainment industry to sew racial mistrust and instill a feeling of resentment. Leftist politicians have convinced blacks that they will save them from the evil conservatives who want them back in chains.
You may remember Joe Biden, during the 2012 presidential election, telling black crowds that if Mitt Romney is elected, Republicans will enslave them all over again. All of this has been done to reduce the black community to poverty, and it has been very effective.
We could make an entire discussion on how Planned Parenthood has aimed its outreach campaigns at black communities as part of an intensely racist eugenics effort.
Prior to the New Deal, black communities were on the rebound. Family coherence and religiosity were commonly said to be superior to that of whites prior to the 1930s. Families were accruing generational wealth and education rates were rising.
The simple fact is that American blacks have been sabotaged by the left-wing welfare state, and the result is that they are in a desperate situation. Having flocked to the inner cities, where leftists promised them they would be safe from evil, lynch-crazy Republicans, blacks now languish in Democrat-dominated war zones where crime soars and excuses abound.
In creating these war zones, left-wing ideologues have created ghettos that are extremely difficult to police. Law enforcement officers have long known that they have to be ready to fight any time they go into neighborhoods run by drug dealers and gangs — the inevitable result of fatherless generations.
In time, race-baiting made it not only extremely unsafe for cops to do their jobs in black neighborhoods, it also made it politically untenable. Crime statistics today tell us that black cops are more likely to shoot black suspects than are white cops. The reason for this is plain to see — white cops are terrified of being accused of racism.
In 2017, for the third year in a row, Baltimore Maryland has had over three hundred murders- making it America’s most dangerous city. This is a result of decades of factory shutdowns- stemming from the kinds of liberal policies that always target industry- killing jobs.
Liberals are always the first to say that poverty causes crime, yet they are eager to create the conditions of poverty. Then, they blame conservatives for the fallout that ensues.
The Reverend Kinji Scott, a pastor in Baltimore says; “I am not [optimistic]. Because I look at the conclusion of 2017, these same cities — St. Louis, Baltimore, New Orleans and Chicago — these same black cities are still bleeding to death and we’re still burying young men in these cities. I’m a preacher, I want to be hopeful, but not as it stands, no. Not until we really have a real conversation with our frontline officers in the heart of our black communities that does not involve our people who are leaders.”
According to Scott, the job of police has become such an uphill battle that they cannot effectively police these poverty-stricken neighborhoods. More and more, these crime-ridden streets are being turned over to the thugs that make them so dangerous.
He says that after the indecent with Freddie Gray, the media deceptively reported that the community wanted police to back off. The people of the community know the truth — Gray was not unarmed, did not have his hands up, and was not an innocent victim of deadly racism.
The Freddie Gray story is just one of many deceptively spun headlines that have so many people believing America is occupied by a wholly oppressive, racist, and bloodthirsty police force.
Our police are not perfect. No one is. In some cases, they perform badly, but in all cases, they are human beings trying to do an important job. And right now, they are under assault by people who buy ink by the barrel.
