Leftists pounced on the Charleston shooting before the bodies were even cold to push their twin agenda of gun control and racial division.
Liberals are hastily exploiting this tragic incident to fabricate the myth that there are armies of white people waiting to commit violent hate crimes against blacks.
They’re even advocating that only white people be disarmed, an inverse of early racist gun control laws which targeted black people.
Salon.com said white America must “answer” for the tragedy, a somewhat different tone to how they responded the Boston bombing, for which Muslims ‘didn’t need to apologize’.
Apparently, white people have suddenly become some kind of KKK version of ISIS.
The reality is somewhat different. Here’s what they’re not telling you.
There’s no wave of hate crimes being committed by whites against black people.
Justice Department statistics show that black people comprise 13% of hate crime victims – a figure in line with their population numbers. White people comprise 65% of hate crime victims. From 2003-2006, black people comprised just 7% of hate crime victims.
Black people are responsible for half of all homicides in the United States despite making up only 13% of the population. DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, blacks committed 52% of homicides, compared to 45% of homicides committed by whites. There’s clearly a problem of violent criminality within the black community, but hardly anyone is talking about it.
Despite being outnumbered by whites five to one, blacks commit eight times more crimes against whites than vice-versa, according to FBI statistics. A black male is 40 times as likely to assault a white person as the reverse.
In addition, the number of blacks killed by other blacks vastly outnumbers the number of blacks killed by whites.
Incidents involving hate crimes, including murders, where the perpetrator is black and the victim is white are almost universally ignored by the mainstream media. For years, the phenomenon of overwhelmingly black people randomly attacking white people on the street was disguised by the press calling it “The Knockout Game,” when in reality it represented a disturbing wave of violent black on white hate crime.
We’re also seeing leftists complain that the gunman – Dylann Roof – isn’t being described as a terrorist by the mass media.
When Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley shot two NYPD cops in the head last December in a Black Lives Matter revenge attack – which was clearly politically motivated – he wasn’t called a terrorist. So by that benchmark, neither should the Charleston shooter.
Just like the NYPD shooting, racial division, fueled by the the Black Lives Matter movement in coordination with the Obama Justice Department on one side, and white supremacists on the other side who hide behind racism to ignore the very real problem of police brutality – meant that the Charleston shooting was all too predictable.
Should law abiding blacks be made to feel guilty for disproportionately high black homicide rates? No. But by the same token law-abiding whites should not be figuratively put on trial and pressured to atone for their white guilt and relinquish their Second Amendment rights in response to events like the Charleston shooting.
So long as the debate continues to be centered around hating on and shaming people for their skin color, resentment on both sides will continue to boil over, encouraging mentally disturbed people to violently act out – with more innocent victims being the price we pay for our obsession with race.
