Heedless of the personal risk, we've repeatedly flouted the rules of political correctness and discussed the urgent necessity of having a candid conversation about race.
It seems we are not entirely alone in this: the pressure to confront what's actually happening in America is building. On Aug. 31, the New York Times reported "Murder Rates Rising Sharply in Many U.S. Cities."
MILWAUKEE - Cities across the nation are seeing a startling rise in murders after years of declines, and few places have witnessed a shift as precipitous as this city. With the summer not yet over, 104 people have been killed this year - after 86 homicides in all of 2014...
In Milwaukee, most of the victims and the suspects in their killings are black men under 30.
The Times listed cities whose murder rates have increased: New Orleans, Baltimore, Washington, St. Louis, New York, and Chicago. Naturally, they didn't point out that these cities have been run by Democrats for many decades, because some truths simply aren't fit to print.
What else would anyone expect? When Mr. Brown was shot on Ferguson, MO, instead of acknowledging the facts about crime and black people, our politicians are pretending that blacks get in trouble purely because the police are biased against them. Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States, told the people of Ferguson:
I can remember being stopped on the New Jersey Turnpike on two occasions and accused of speeding ... I remember how humiliating that was and how angry I was and the impact it had on me.
Mr. Holder didn't tell us whether he'd been speeding or not, but he was clearly a victim of bigotry, right? In a word, "No!"
The New York Times described a study funded by Eric Holder's very own Justice Department and conducted on that selfsame New Jersey Turnpike, which discovered that blacks were in fact far more likely than whites to speed. The report was suppressed because it didn't get the desired answer.
Mr. Holder lied about his experience in claiming that police were prejudiced against black people. It later turned out that Mr. Brown had tried to take the officer's gun, he had not had his hands up, and that it was what police and law-abiding citizens call a "good shooting." Mr. Holder's statements and the chants of the "Hands up, don't shoot" crowd were so outrageous that the Washington Post felt compelled to publish an apology for transmitting falsehood.
In response to these lies, protesters chanted: "What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now!" To no one's surprise, black hoodlum are deliberately murdering police officers. While Mr. Obama has stated that he deplores the murder of police, he has continued to say that blacks are being treated unfairly throughout the land.
At the Minneapolis State Fair, a "Black Lives Matter" group chanted: "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon." A black murdered a Houston sheriff's deputy in cold blood.
Whenever a white or a police officer of any color shoots a black person, the media blame white hatred of blacks even if the officer is black and the target is a dangerous felon. When a black criminal shoots a white person, whether police or civilian, the media bleat about how the poor criminal suffered from poverty and racism. Then they segue to gun control, as if no black person had ever hated a white person.
Everyone in the country rightly recoiled in disgust when the psychopathic monster Dylann Roof shot up a church full of innocent black worshippers. Roof, who does not even deserve the customary honorific of "Mr.", said he was trying to start a race war. We all saw him for the evil lunatic that he is.
Alas, it wasn't reported that there are plenty of black people in full agreement with Roof, eager to start a race war in the other direction. Presumably the despicable "Sista Solove" has not actually executed anyone, so in that sense she is less of a demon than Roof is. Even so, shouldn't she be decried as evil almost as forcefully? But no. The Wall Street Journal asked Thomas Sowell about Ferguson:
"People want to believe what they want to believe, and the facts are not going to stop them," he says, adding that black leaders—from President Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder down to Al Sharpton—"do all they can to feed that sense of grievance, victimhood and resentment, because that's where the votes are."
Eric Holder, his boss President Obama, and Al Sharpton are certainly not idiots. They have to know that their rhetoric is leading directly to the death of police officers. This leads directly to the death of innocent civilians that are killed by other thugs because some police are too hesitant to stop the thugs, and also to the death of innocent civilians mistakenly shot by jumpy and nervous police seeing threats on all sides.
Which raises the question: why are they continuing to fan the flames? Could it be that they too are in agreement with Roof and "Sista Solove," and would like to see a race war begin?
God forbid that this should happen! But if it ever does, simple math should tell you that it won't be the side of Holder, Obama, Solove, and Sharpton who wins it. Maybe they are too clever for their own good.
