Congressional Black Caucus members and other Democrats wore a black “1870” pin to continue their incantation that the biggest threat to black people is the police. The truth is that the biggest threat to black people is other black people and the Democrat Party.
Gangs are the biggest danger. Democrats are the biggest danger.
Many Democrats wore black pins with the number “1870” on them to the State of the Union. It allegedly marks the year of the first known police killing of an unarmed and free black person in the United States. The pins are a call for action on reforming the institution of policing that has allegedly killed thousands of black people in the 153 years since.
There are very few police killings of black people who weren’t engaged in committing a crime. A recent Harvard study actually determined that police officers are less likely to shoot a black suspect than a white suspect when you take into account the context of the shooting.
“I’m tired of moments of silence. I’m tired of periods of mourning,” New Jersey Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, a Democrat who came up with the idea to create the pins, told Yahoo News. “I wanted to highlight that police killings of unarmed Black citizens have been in the news since 1870, and yet significant action has yet to be taken.”
It would be better for black people if Ms. Coleman organized congresspeople against gang violence. Why does no one care about all the people dying from crime, especially black people in poorer areas?
Maybe Ms. Coleman is sincere, but Democrats have weaponized anti-police hate to take down the local police and nationalize the police forces in the United States. That’s the reason for the attack on police and the stereotyping of all police.
Those who know and have studied U.S. History know the vast majority of black’s misery and suffering has occurred at the hands of DEMOCRATS.
The vast majority of miseducation, noneducation and lies regarding U.S. History has come from those in charge of the public schools: DEMOCRATS.
They are addicted to victimhood.
OKAY, THEN HOW ABOUT WE SHUT DOWN ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND ALLOW THE PEOPLE TO POLICE THEMSELVES !!! SOUNDS LIKE A PLAN, LET THE COMMUNITY AND NEIGHBORHOODS POLICE THEMSELVES. NO MORE AMBULANCE OR FIRE AND RESCUE BECAUSE THEY ARE ATTACKED AND MANY TIMES ROBBED AT GUN POINT BY GANGS AND SUCH. NO MORE 911 CALLS NO MORE COPS SHOOTING ANYONE ANYMORE. OF COURSE THE DEMOCRATS WILL MAKE CERTAIN THAT EVERYONE IS DISARMED SO THEY CAN’T PROTECT THEMSELVES, FAMILIES OR BUSINESSES. BUT WHO CARES, AS LONG AS THERE’S NO COPS TO SHOOT MILLIONS OF BLACKS DOWN IN THE STREETS. RIGHT ??
How about fixing black schools in the inner city and adding more police in high crime areas. All children are a national resource. How about stopping the murder of 1 out of every 2 black children. White babies matter, too.
But people like Joe simply don’t care about the slaughter as long as they get richer.
Schools can only be fixed with an open voucher system where parents can send their children to Private and Parochial Schools and the Government supply a voucher that follows the Student. Without competition, public schools will always be indoctrination camps run by Crazy Liberals.
I foot the bill for sending my youngest daughter to a private high school. The cost of that high school is less than the the tax money spent on children in the failing local public schools. While Failing, public schools are also costly, as is everything done by Government.
Until recently Blacks were their own worst enemy, but Traitor Joe has changed that. With open borders the Hispanic Drug Cartels have set up Shop in America. Blacks now are in Turf wars with MS13 for the drug trade, and MS13 is ruthless.
Thank you. How about a national task force aimed at destroying MS 13 wherever it is found. They are a genuine enemy of everything decent.
POTUS TRUMP TRIED TO DO EXACTLY THAT BUT WAS BLOCKED NUMEROUS TIMES BY THE DOJ AND EVEN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ON BOTH SIDES. HE WANTED TO WIPE THEM OUT JUST LIKE HE WANTED TO DECLARE ANTIFA AS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION ALONG WITH THE DRUG CARTELS. BUT NOO CAN’T HAVE THAT NOW CAN WE, IT JUST MIGHT CUT OFF THE CASH FLOWING INTO SELECT DEM AND REPUBIC BANK ACCOUNTS.
Almost like it’s all intentional?
