Candace Owens belongs to a group of African Americans who see beyond the BS and understand what the real problems black Americans face are…and it isn’t ‘white racism.’
She’s totally correct that George Floyd is no martyr. He’s a thug who is simply convenient to the Democrats, BLM and Antifa and the left with an election coming up. As I mentioned here, he has a great deal in common with the rest of the so called ‘martyrs’ used to incite riots and racist ‘hate whitey’ dialogue.
Like Trayvon Martin*, Rodney King, and the so-called ‘Gentle Giant’ he has a rap sheet for a number of violent crimes, including theft, a number of drug dealing offenses, robbery, and a home invasion where he pointed a loaded gun at the stomach of a pregnant black woman while she begged for her life. In fact, he had a bag of cocaine with him when he was stopped.
He had just committed or was in the process of committing a felony when he had his altercation with police.
He was crazy high on drugs when he was stopped, another felony. That was revealed by the autopsy.
Instead of doing what the police asked him to do, he resisted furiously to the point where they had to drag him out of his car. The two friends (accomplices??) he had with him did exactly what the police said to do. Both of them are alive and neither was injured in any way.
My point here is not that George Floyd deserved to die in the way he did, but that Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Democrat politicians, the Leftist Media and the various companies, individuals and institutions using him as a ‘battle cry’, martyr and role model for virtue signalling is cynical to a disgusting degree and simply a matter of convenience. It is also racist in and of itself, since lauding people like this insures more will follow George Floyd using the same pattern for their lives. They too will get involved in crime, drug use, and refuse to obey police at some point
Candace Owens makes an interesting point here…that black culture is the only one that makes heroes out of career criminals like George Floyd. She also shows us something I’ve been aware of for some time…that white men are far more likely to be killed by police then black men, even though black men, 6% of our population commit a ridiculously out sized percentage of violent crime….
So here’s the question.
How long are a substantial percentage of Black Americans going to allow themselves to be used this way?
Where are Black fathers? 75% of black births happen out of wedlock.
How long are you going to be tools for the Democrat party and the Left? Do black Americans realize that the vast majority of Democrat supported Planned Parenthood’s abortions and baby parts for sale come from black babies? Read up on Margaret Sanger, who started Planned Parenthood and why she did it. And maybe remember which political party fights tooth and nail to finance and protect Planned Parenthood.
Do you think your kids don’t learn something from you or other black Americans when they see you looting and destroying? You bet they do and it puts them on the same path as George Floyd. Is that what you really want? Think about why they might learn from you about not following a policeman’s instructions and resisting violently and how that might end.
Think about it.
And again, I’ll repeat what I’ve written elsewhere. If you think America is a racist country with no opportunity for black Americans and where your kids are in danger of being shot by police, I suggest you think seriously about finding another country to migrate to. It’s a big world and a truly moral decision would be to migrate to someplace you think would be better. That’s a moral decision and one I would certainly make if I felt like that.
*Trayvon Martin didn’t have much of a rap sheet, but he was clearly headed that way. He was no innocent, having a background as a truant, a liar, a thief, a schoolyard bully, and a doper.He was on suspension when he was shot in February, after officials caught him with a ‘marijuana pipe’ and a baggie with drug residue; He was suspended three times for graffiti, being in possession of ‘burglary tools’ and a bag full of women’s jewelry and for attacking a bus driver. He was on suspension when he had his altercation with George Zimmerman, who he assaulted. Except for not doing jail time, he fits the profile perfectly.
