Evidence of anti-police bias

In my opinion, that BLM does not care about black lives — just a narrative.

April 20 – Columbus, Ohio. Within hours of the results of the George Floyd court case, it appears that a white cop responding to a 911 call, just up and shot another young Black Girl. Ma’Khia Bryant, 16 years old.

CNN and MSNBC and others are all over it. The president and vice president all point out it was another sign of systemic racism in the police system. LeBron James, the multi-millionaire black political activist, and part time sports star, quickly twitted to all his 50 million followers “You’re Next”!

What really happened? A 911 call had gone out that someone was “trying to fight us, trying to stab us, trying to put their hands on our Grandma.” Police quickly showed up. Three girls were fighting, and one girl hit the ground, the other one had a knife in her hand and was reaching back, getting ready to stab another girl. The police yelled at her four times to drop it! and then he shot the girl with the knife, thereby saving the life of the other young girl. He was a hero. Except the cop committed the sin of being white.

The next day, 100 miles away in Cincinnati Ohio, a 13-year-old girl got into a fight with another girl and allegedly slashed the throat of Nyaira Givens, age 13. A very similar story. But NBC, CNN, NY Times did not pick up on it. Both participants happened to be black. Where is the news in that?

MSN and others reveal that 90 percent of black homicides are caused by blacks, and 80 percent of white homicides are caused by whites.

Honestly and truly – if someone offered you $10, could you come up with the name of a victim that was shot by a black policeman?

That is not following the narrative that is being played out and repeated.

I submit, in my opinion, that BLM does not care about black lives. The presidency, half of Congress, and the progressive media outlets (MSNBC, CNN, etc.) do not care about black lives.

They care about an agenda, a “narrative,” that the U.S. is a systemically racist country, and the police are bad. That is the only reason that I can think of, that they will only talk about white cops shooting black people.

They are looking at you in the camera and lying for a reason. I am not sure what that reason is yet.

It could be that no one is talking about Jeffrey Epstein anymore. No one is looking at the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens that are streaming across the border.

It could be that no one is thinking about the fact that we are preparing to spend $5.9 trillion this year. And the only way to pay for it, is that we are going to have our taxes raised.
