Black Lives Matter. But not in Chicago

“Black Lives Matter.”

Yes they do.

But it is black on black crime that is the greatest cause of death of young black people. Not murderous acts by odious white cops. This is the low hanging fruit for those who truly care about black lives.

Work in those communities for better education, contraception rather than unmarried births and jobs. Help people become employable.

This should be the focus of BLM, not tearing down statues. And it certainly shouldn’t be creating anarchy.

Are there bad applies in the police force. Absolutely. But just 3 black people have been wrongly killed by the police in the whole country since the beginning of the year. It’s so rare an occurrence that we know each victims’ names.

By comparison 9 children have been shot dead in just one city over the last two weeks. Who is marching in their names?
