You know we had to say something… #BlackLivesMatter, #AllLivesMatter, #AllFliesMatter – you get the picture. What started as a protest movement (although questions arise if it was intended as peaceful), the #LivesMatter movement is reaching across the pond and around the world. The white supremacists and are calling the movement racist and the #BlackLivesMatter (Black Panther Movement) are calling it bigoted and hate speech. Let’s get a few things strait…
Why does it matter? The ‘movement’ started because a black man was shot by white police officers. Black is now the new “African-American”! Wait… isn’t it politically incorrect to say Black? Oh, that’s only true unless you are Black. When racial injustice rears it’s ugly head, it’s okay to call yourself anything you want. White people can’t call anyone (no matter their color) the “N” word, but yet it’s glorified in RAP songs and video because it’s okay among those who embrace the ideology of a race. Throw the words SPIC, KIKE, CHINK, DOT, FEATHER, HONKY or any other potentially slanderous word into the mix and someone throws up their arms, paints a sign and takes to the streets to block traffic and destroy businesses of hard working AMERICANS!
That’s right. Unless you are in the United States illegally, you are a citizen. Your personal right, duty and obligation is to be a CITIZEN of this country. it doesn’t matter if you are purple, yellow, pink or green – the color of your skin should not matter, but it does to everyone who is against being a CITIZEN. That doesn’t mean that you cannot have an opinion, that you cannot express your opinion or take to the streets to express your rights 0 it does mean that everyone is first a human, then a person and then a citizen.
So the whole movement is because a black African-American man was shot by police, but do you know the facts? Do you know how many people are shot every day? Do you know how many are shot EVERY DAY by police? Before you decide to join a movement that promotes violence and racial hatred, maybe you should look at the whole picture, not just your little slice of the world and find out the truth. “You can’t handle the truth!”
Every Day on Average (all ages) People in the United States Killed by Gun Violence
Every day, 306 people in America are shot in murders, assaults, suicides & suicide attempts, unintentional shootings, and police intervention.
Every day, 90 people die from gun violence:
- 31 are murdered
- 56 kill themselves
- 2 are killed unintentionally
- 1 is killed by police intervention
- 1 intent unknown.
Every day, 216 people are shot and survive:
- 159 shot in an assault
- 11 survive a suicide attempt
- 43 are shot unintentionally
- 3 are shot in a police intervention
The main stream media and social media jump on a bandwagon that doesn’t show the full picture. Sure, we sympathize with the families of the innocently deceased, but black killings are not the only ones. The right to bear arms and peacefully protest doesn’t seem to exist when #BlackLivesMatter activists get together – it’s more like the right to disrupt and destroy. If you choose to be part of of any movement, choose one that promotes your right to be a citizen of the United States with the rights and respect due to others. And, if you’re just a mean and hateful bastard who wishes to inflict pain and suffering on others because your life sucks, deal with it – everybody else does. Shit Happens!
Now go vote!
