For over a month, radical activist group Black Lives Matter has protested, rioted, and brought destruction across American cities. They have demonized police officers as the single force behind the death of black Americans. Yet they appear to turn a blind eye from the mountain of black deaths caused by criminals. Now, after the death of a child in Atlanta, it appears even Democrats are turning on this so-called movement.
It’s no secret that more black Americans die at the hands of black criminals than anyone else. The numbers speak for themselves. In fact, over the last month and a half (since BLM called for the defunding of police departments) we’ve seen a staggering rise in shootings and deaths in cities like Chicago and New York.
Yet time and again, Black Lives Matters ignores the many black Americans (including young children) who have died at the hands of black criminals. Instead, they focus on the small number who die as the result of police interactions gone wrong.
Once again, a young black child was killed—this time in Atlanta on the Fourth of July—at the hands of black criminals. It appears Black Lives Matter was partly to blame and they tried to sweep it under the rug. But even the Democrat mayor of the city has had enough.
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms slammed the local community on Sunday during a press conference about the death of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner, who was killed on Saturday evening when an armed group of individuals opened fire on a car that she was riding in near the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed last month…
“We’ll now we’re demanding action for Secoriea Turner and for all of the other people who were shot in Atlanta last night and over the past few weeks because the reality is this – these aren’t police officers shooting people on the streets of Atlanta, these are members of the community shooting each other, and in this case, it is the worst possible outcome.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Bottoms admits the “movement” against police brutality is doing “more harm than any police officer.” She referred the 75 shootings just in Atlanta alone over the last few weeks. This is the first time a Democrat leader is willing to speak out against the hypocrisy of BLM’s blindness to black-on-black crime. It will be much harder for the media to ignore it, now.
The father of the 8-year-old victim, like many other black victims in recent weeks, has condemned the political group for what they’ve done.
“They say black lives matter,” Turner’s father said. “You killed your own. You killed your own this time. … They killed my baby because she crossed the barrier and made a U-turn. You killed a child. She didn’t do nothing to nobody.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Let’s set the record straight: Black Lives Matter is part of the Democrat establishments’ extreme left wing. They are political tool used to manipulate black Americans, compelling them to vote liberal. Why else don’t we hear anything from this group—when it’s not an election year?
They think they can use the death of a few black people to whip up black Americans into a frenzy. BLM sit back and watch as cities burn. They turn black Americans against their neighbors and do nothing as innocent lives are lost.
All to win an election.
Is there anything more despicable? We don’t see this kind of something coming from conservatives. Democrats don’t even do this to motivate white or any other groups of non-black Americans to vote. They only do this to black people. Proving they’re only interested in black people, when it’s time to vote.
It proves low little Democrats respect or care about black lives.
