THE STATISTICS THAT BLACK ‘LEADERS’ AND THE LIBERAL MEDIA DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW
More blacks in America are killed every year than the total number of U.S. service men and women that have died in ten years of armed conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. Moreover, 93% of blacks are killed by blacks. Chances are, you haven’t heard this from the Obama Media Group. Why not? They don’t want you to know the truth. Neither do Obama, Sharpton and Farrakhan.
- Blacks make up only 12.5% of the U.S. population – yet commit nearly 40% of murders in America every year
- Nearly 50% of murder victims in America are black. Again – blacks make up only 12.5% of the total population
- Blacks kill more members of their own race every year than do all other races in America – combined.
When did you last hear a rant by Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson on the subject of blacks killing more blacks in America than all do other races combined? How about Calypso Louie Farrakhan or Malik “Buck Dancing Tom” Zulu Shabazz? If you answered, “never,” join the club. These self-appointed “leaders” of black America are hypocrites of the worst kind: they rush to condemn non-blacks at every opportunity – often without evidence and usually proven wrong – yet they virtually ignore the murder of their own by people by their own people – year after year.
A report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics reveals that approximately 8,000 – and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 blacks are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling fact is accompanied by another equally chilling statistic; 93% of these murders are committed by other blacks. The analysis, supported by FBI records, finds that in 2005, for example, blacks accounted for nearly 50% of all homicide victims in the U.S. – again, almost exclusively at the hands of other blacks.
You see, folks, as is the case with all liberals, perception is much more important than fact to the likes of Sharpton, Jackson & Company; they’re far more interested in being perceived as looking out for “my people” by standing against “the white man” than they are concerned with stopping the murder of thousands of “my people” from the true killer of blacks: other blacks. Their shame is inexcusable – except by the black community as a whole, of course.
Where is the outrage within the black community?
It doesn’t exist. At least not for public consumption, anyway. Where are the words of condemnation from black politicians who have made fools of themselves following the death of Trayvon Martin? Is it denial? Fear? Disingenuousness? A warped sense of logic that says acknowledgement by blacks of the epidemic of blacks being killed by blacks is somehow a betrayal of the black community?
A good friend of mine – who happens to be black – has shared with me on several occasions how he was chastised by black classmates in school – for being a good student, behaving responsibly and treating white students with respect. His crime? “Acting white.”
“Why you acting white?” was a common question – and accusation – my friend heard from fellow-black students as he worked hard to ensure that life after high school would lead to college and beyond. My friend is now a successful businessman – well-respected by all who know him.
Funny, my good friend acts neither white – nor black. He acts responsible.
There’s never a Martin Luther King around when you need one.
