Black Lives Matter as a movement will not be taken seriously until they learn to differentiate between a Blue Thug murdering a Citizen and a Cop killing an armed criminal. Certainly, the Blue Thugs are more prone to killing Black Citizens. Yet, it crushes any credibility of the movement when they demonstrate against a Cop who has shot an actual criminal who actually had a firearm and who actually pointed it at a Cop, refused to drop the weapon or shot at an actual Cop or a Citizen.
When a Blue Thug kills an actual innocent Black person, Black Lives Matter should be out in force. When a Cop shoots an actual criminal, Black Lives Matter should be silent. Until that happens, no one can take them seriously. They’ve become the Al Sharpton of political movements. They have zero credibility.
I would love for this movement to have credibility. This is an important subject. Police Brutality does, I believe, disproportionately affect Black Americans. It does not ONLY affect Black Americans though. Police Brutality affects everyone.
For morons who keep asking about Black on Black crime, yes, this is another important issue. Yet, it is a separate issue.Black on Black crime is Citizen against Citizen. Police Brutality is a State Power issue. When the State assumes the power of life and death and does so with such ease as do Police, we have an issue. A huge issue.
Much of the Black on Black crime that is out there, I believe is created by the War on Drugs. End the War on Drugs and much Black on Black crime within Black Communities will dissipate. Many of the problems within the Black Communities in America have been created by the State.
The lesson that everyone is missing in all of this is that NO LIFE MATTERS to the State. The State uses the Citizens and others as a tax base and to legitimize itself via elections. The State doesn’t care about Black lives or White lives or any lives. It cares only that it continues to exist. Once you realize this, things start to make sense.
