Black Lives Matter

The whole "Black Lives Matter" movement in the US is nonsense built on sand.
  


The "Black Lives Matter" riots of 2020.
Evil people doing evil.



Parts of Minneapolis in ruins after the "Black Lives Matter" riots of 2020.
How does this help anybody?




The Ferguson riots, 2014

The "Black Lives Matter" hysteria has a script. Cop-haters, criminals and leftists protest about the death/injury of a criminal. The police are slandered and property is destroyed. Cops may be killed. Nothing good will happen.

What was new about the 2014 Ferguson riots was that the US President supported the protesters and rioters against the police.





The face of decent, hard-working, tax-paying, law-abiding America.
Michael Brown robbed his store.
Then Michael Brown's thug supporters looted his store.



Video of Brown robbing the store, and later, his supporters looting the store.
They tried to burn it but someone put the fire out.
They burned many other businesses.

The "Ferguson effect", 2014-16

The legacy of any period of cop-bashing is going to be cops more afraid to take action. This is not necessarily good for law-abiding people.




White cops are not the main killers of blacks in the Ferguson area.
From here.




The George Floyd riots, 2020




The 2007 home invasion.
From here.
More on his criminal record at the left-wing site Snopes. Snopes, being partisan leftists, try to put a positive spin on his life of crime. But in between all the spin you can read the facts about his life.



Irish state TV RTE describes the armed home invader as a "gentle giant", 20 Apr 2021.



"George Floyd Remembered As "Gentle Giant" By Victim Of Home Invasion".
From here.


  

The 2020 riots

All summer of 2020, America suffered riots, looting and arson. For no logical reason.

  


White leftists burn down black-owned businesses and black neighbourhoods.
Well done leftists. You're "helping".



The Democrats basically encouraged the riots all summer. They said the rioters' anger was justified, the protests were "mostly" peaceful, the police were at fault, and so on. The Democrats' behaviour was disgraceful.
Here is Michelle Obama, Oct 2020, pretending everything we saw this summer did not happen and talking about it is wacist.
Someone changed the background to show the real summer rather than the summer she is talking about.
Another version here.


  

BLM is Marxist


  

The "Floyd effect", 2020 on

We should expect a big rise in murder and other crimes as a result of the Floyd hysteria and riots, distrust of and defunding of police, and police afraid of not being supported in their actions. And indeed that is what happened.
  


As sure as night follows day, the crap ideas of 2020 led to this.
"more than 19,000 people died in shootings or firearm-related incidents in 2020, the highest figure in over two decades."
Well done everybody.



Comment on the idiots who want to defund the police.



By summer 2021, white support for BLM had collapsed.
Good.
From here.


  

There is no racial problem in US policing

There is no racial problem in US policing. It is just a myth. This thread lays out the basic facts:
  1. The number of deaths are small. Police officers in the USA have 375 million annual contacts with civilians. The police fatally shot 9 unarmed blacks and 19 unarmed whites in 2019.
  2. The 9 unarmed blacks represent 0.1% of the 7,407 black murder victims in 2019.
  3. This site points out those stats are for fatally shot, not all fatalities. A site called Mapping Police Violence claims 28 unarmed blacks and 51 unarmed whites died at the hands of police in 2019. It includes officers who are off duty.
  4. Blacks killing police is a much bigger problem than vice versa. A police officer is 18 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.
  5. Cops killed per year. 147 cops died in the line of duty in 2019. Though not all were murdered.
  6. Are blacks disproportionally represented in the small number of police shootings? No. Blacks are responsible for 53% of homicides and 60% of robberies. Blacks are about 25% of those killed by cops. Why the difference?
  7. Are white cops bad? Again no. Studies show white police officers are less likely than black or Hispanic officers to shoot unarmed black suspects.
  8. Every part of the "Black Lives Matter" story is bullshit. It is a myth. A myth that fuels anger and lynch mobs and riots.

Some articles:

Black Americans do not agree with BLM:

The media picks what stories to cover:

  


American cops are racist and sexist.
Until men are killed at the same rate as women, and until whites are killed at the same rate as Asians, the cops have not reformed.
Stats from here.



Blacks commit 53% of homicides.
From Homicide Trends in the United States, 1980-2008.



The BLM madness explained in one chart.
The BLM hysteria happens because Americans do not have a clue about police violence.
54 percent of "very liberal" Americans think that the police kill about 1,000 (or more) unarmed black men per year.
Even 26 percent of "moderate" Americans and 20 percent of "very conservative" Americans agree.
The correct answer is 27 unarmed black men.
And this is how policy is made, not just in America but around the world. Based on lies and myths.
From Skeptic Research Center.



Leftists think the US is a racist country by global standards.
From here.
Conservatives are the reality-based or science-based community. Leftists live in a world of fantasy and myth. On this issue at least.
Anyone who answered purple should try to get educated about life in countries outside the West.


  

Blue Lives Matter

Black lives do matter. I agree.
Because All Lives Matter.
White Lives Matter.
And Blue Lives Matter.
If you disagree, there is something wrong with you.

  


"Officer Down" by Hannah Ellis.



This is what brave police have to face everywhere, but especially in a country with guns.
Tulsa, Oklahoma, police officer is killed, June 2020.
Suspect in a routine traffic stop whines about his "rights" and refuses to get out of the car. His endless whining and non-cooperation seems just irritating but not a threat. Then he suddenly pulls a gun and shoots one cop dead and critically injures the other cop.
These are the kind of split second decisions cops must make as they try to figure out whether they are about to be killed or not.
See another example from a Pennsylvania traffic stop in 2018.

Blocked by the regressive left and Islamists on Twitter: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Where to debate? Twitter's best days are over. I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a truly great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Since 2016, Twitter is broken. It is now full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could ever be appealed. It is time to find a better place to debate. I am on Parler at markhumphrys.
