Today’s Guest Video is presented by The Black Pigeon: “Black Lives Matter: Civil War.” How does one explain the phenomenon of the “Black Lives Matter” movement. The Black Pigeon summarises that:
“in 2014, according to statistics compiled by the federal bureau of investigations, there were 187 Blacks that were killed by White people, while there were 446 White people killed by Black people. While Blacks have killed more than double the number of Whites, you have to remember that Blacks only make up around 13% of the population. To put it another way, Blacks are killing Whites grossly disproportionately to the rates that Whites are killing Blacks […] Let’s take a look at police shootings. Police killed nearly twice as many Whites in 2015. There were 258 Blacks killed by police, while there were 494 Whites that were killed by police.“
Relying on studies by the Justice Department and the University of Pennsylvania, the Black Pigeon explains how blacks are responsible for a majority of violent and property crimes, and that Black and Hispanic police officers are also statistically more likely to shoot a Black suspect than White officers. Contrary to the narrative peddled by Social Justice Warriors, a police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be shot by a Black than a Black is likely to be shot by a police officer. Moreover, a Black police officer is more than three times more likely to discharge his firearm than a White police officer in the field.
What the Black Pigeon illustrates in this video is that the ideology and narrative that is pushed by “Black Lives Matter” and their apologists in the mainstream press exacerbates an already tense situation. The reflexive anti-police rhetoric and divisive sloganising of race-hucksters on the far left has made communities less safe and divided the American nation. The “Ferguson Effect” is one example of this, where the police become less inclined to intervene in certain situations for fear of being accused of racism by unscrupulous criminal elements. Ultimately, the tension is amplified by activists on the political fringe who do not have the best interests of their communities at heart. For more information, see the video, below:
