Via The Blaze:
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly—whose comments about the problems in the black community raised a firestorm this week—has at least one supporter.
And he’s African-American and a host for rival network CNN.
Don Lemon said Saturday on his “No Talking Points” segment that O’Reilly has “a point. In fact, he’s got more than a point…In my estimation, he doesn’t go far enough.”
Lemon then listed five essential reforms black men need to make:
- pull up pants
- drop the N-word
- take care of their communities
- finish high school
- lower rate of children born out of wedlock.
There were packs of feral dogs when I grew up there… I had to climb a tree once while waiting for the school-bus. It has to be REALLY bad now.
I wrote this back in April of last year:
To be exact, the shameful truth is that 93% of African-American murders are committed by other African-Americans. That is breathtakingly awful when you consider how incensed the African-American community is about the Trayvon tragedy, no matter what you believe about Zimmerman’s guilt.
Let’s do the gruesome math, not out of morbidity, but because it manifests the incredible self-centered insanity of people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
8,000-9,000 African-Americans are murdered each year.
93% of them by other African-Americans.
That’s 7,905 (from average)
That’s 21.65 murdered each day by other African-Americans.
And these racebaiting culture-hustling microphone-pimps only get riled up when a “White Hispanic” kills an African-American? It’s absolutely shameful.
To update, in the 503 days between Trayvon dying, and today’s verdict, 10,865 African Americans have been murdered by other African-Americans.
I was so shocked, I had to double check my numbers.
Here are the numbers of TOTAL dead between the Iraq and Afghan wars, combined:
Should I mention that under Obama, many feel race-relations have gotten worse… but worse than that, I hear people (media and Democrats) say all the time “if the ‘roles’ had been reversed in the Trayvon Martin case, the outcome would have been different.” This is provably false. First, let us see what the Prez said:
…And that all contributes I think to a sense that if a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, that, from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.
I agree, the outcome would have been totally different, Eric Holder, Obama, the Justice Dept, the staff and reporters at MSNBC and CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and the like, would have all ignored the case.
President Obama weighed in on a local court case — again. He asked, “what if Trayvon was white?” I believe the answer is clear.
If Trayvon was white, there would have been no national headlines. No one outside Sanford, Florida would have even heard about the case. A black George Zimmerman would never have been charged with a crime. And if there had been a trial, and a black Zimmerman was found “Not Guilty,” you can bet your last dollar that Obama’s Justice Department would not be considering “civil rights charges.” If they did, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would call it “double jeopardy” and “a modern day lynching of an innocent black man.”
The reality is that white Americans are killed by black Americans every day, but the national media never report it because they are afraid of being called “racist.” I can’t remember ever seeing or hearing race mentioned on the national news unless it is a white-on-black crime. And then, it is the centerpiece of the story, and always blamed on “racism.”
By the way, George Zimmerman isn’t white. He is Hispanic. But liberals never let facts get in the way of a good story. That’s why the media and the race baiters have coined a new phrase: “white Hispanic.”
The same fear of being called “racist” is exactly the reason the national media never reports black on black crime, which has become a national tragedy. Cities like Detroit, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Obama’s Chicago are “killing fields” for young black men. They are more dangerous for black Americans than Afghanistan or Iraq. Why doesn’t the national media report on this tragedy? Why hasn’t Obama ever held a press conference to discuss that crisis? It is certainly much more devastating to the black community.
Could Obama name any of the black murder victims in Chicago that were shot by other blacks during the Zimmerman trial? Why are those young men that look like Obama’s son any less important? Is it because their deaths don’t stir up racial anger or resentment?
Here’s another difference — if the victim were white there would be no involvement by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Congressional Black Caucus, or tweets by liberal Hollywood celebrities, or protests across America. When was the last time any of the race baiters weighed in on a murder involving a white American? When was the last time a white person being murdered resulted in protests or rioting? Can you name one? Have white people ever protested en mass about a black accused criminal getting found “Not Guilty?” Did the OJ verdict cause rioting by white Americans?
Here is something else we know: If Trayvon had been white, the President of the United States would never have gotten involved in a local court case. Never.
But we do have an example of a case that was exactly reversed:
Does the mainstream media in America have an agenda in the Trayvon Martin – George Zimmerman case? There was certainly a media influenced uproar surrounding the case; why didn’t they pay as much attention when a black neighborhood watchman shot and killed a white teen boy? This is the story that the mainstream media in America doesn’t want you to know about, the story of a black man who, when attacked by a 17 year old white boy, did what he felt like he had to do to survive and shot and killed the unarmed teen. Mr. Roderick Scott is the size of an NFL linebacker. Christopher Cervini was a skinny, 17-year old kid. Mr. Roderick Scott was found innocent for reason of self-defense. The must watch videos below tell the story, a sickening story of a mainstream media in America with an agenda, a story that they don’t want you to know about.
Not to mention that in Florida, the “stand your ground law” helps protect blacks from being victims of crime themselves:
African Americans benefit from Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law at a rate far out of proportion to their presence in the state’s population, despite an assertion by Attorney General Eric Holder that repealing “Stand Your Ground” would help African Americans.
Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites.
Nonetheless, prominent African Americans including Holder and “Ebony and Ivory” singer Stevie Wonder, who has vowed not to perform in the Sunshine State until the law is revoked, have made “Stand Your Ground” a central part of the Trayvon Martin controversy.
All this contributes to a massive problem that only exists in the minds of the Race Hustlers.
Frustrating! Liberalism Distorts Evils and Exchanges them for Moral Goods (Isaiah 5:20)
Holly Ordway (author of Not God’s Type: A Rational Academic Finds a Radical Faith) was a hard-core atheist who thought Christian theism was a complete joke. She was openly hostile towards Christianity and thought their followers were superstitious idiots! She was even a fan of Richard Dawkins’. However, as a college academic and scholar she was challenged to look into Christianity and took a surprise turn in her life and realized how intellectually defensible Christianity was. She is now a proud born-again Christian who speaks in apologetic circles defending the faith. In this lecture, she gives her testimony of her conversion from atheism and answers five questions: Why was I an atheist? What was it that made me listen to apologetic arguments? What was it like to experience these apologetic arguments? What was the role of the imagination in this journey? Now that I’m a Christian, now what?
