It’s more like EmptyLiesMatter, if facts about black Americans are known…but DELIBERATELY ignored – which is what the Left & LIBedia does on a daily basis.
‘Systemic racism’ and ‘disproportionate police encounters’ oppress black Americans?
Systemic Racism? Not according to noted (black) economist/academic Walter Williams.
Oppression? Not really…“Often overlooked or ignored is the fact that, as a group, black Americans have made the greatest gains, over some of the highest hurdles, and in a shorter span of time than any other racial group in history.” (emph added)
Walter Williams, writing today: “…if one totaled up the earnings and spending of black Americans and considered us as a separate nation with our own gross domestic product, we would rank well within the top 20 richest nations.” (emph added)
BLM (blacklivesmatter) groups raging across America, tearing down the statues of their ancestors’ oppressive southern Democrat leaders, complain of lack of opportunity?
They complain of America’s continued oppression of the black American community…
…you know, the one that, as a group, would be among the richest in the world.
Ms. Rice was a Nat’l Security Adviser. Ben Carson’s a noted pediatric brain surgeon.
As for disproportionate police encounters? How about disproportionate criminality?
We noted in a June 05 post: “…they wail ‘blacks are only 13% of the population, but make up 36% of police shooting victims’…yet…we’re NOT told (according to a 2016 Dept of Justice report) ‘…blacks were charged with 62% of all robberies, 57% of all murders, and 45% of all assaults in the 75 largest U.S. counties…even though they make up only 15% of those county populations.’ Strange…no one reports THAT.”
These inconvenient facts put the nail in the coffin of ‘oppressed blacks’ LIES.
A greater question arises: if, as noted economist Walter Williams finds, black Americans have made the greatest gains over the shortest time, of ANY racial group in history…
…why aren’t they marching in pride…rather than rioting in anger?
Why aren’t they marching to erect a monument to such historical achievement…
…rather than tearing down statues of those preceding Black America’s HUGE efforts?
