Black lives don’t matter.
I know. It’s horribly insensitive and politically incorrect to say so, but any objective assessment of reality reveals this is true. Or, to be more precise, black lives don’t matter to the race-baiting political opportunists and the liberal Democrat politicians who are always lecturing, preening, moralizing, and inciting anger and outrage in front of the nearest available TV camera.
Doubt me? Well, then look at the facts.
The #blacklivesmatter movement began in the wake of the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. Martin was shot and killed after assaulting volunteer neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman (a “white Hispanic”, according to the New York Times), who witnesses testified was knocked to the ground and punched repeatedly by Martin, slamming his head over and over into the concrete. Michael Brown was shot and killed by white police officer Darren Wilson, after Brown robbed a store, threatened the store owner, and assaulted Officer Wilson, attempting to take his gun after Wilson initially stopped only because Brown was walking down the middle of the street.
In both cases, the Obama White House sent several representatives to the funeral, and in both cases Obama expressed solidarity with the families, and lectured us on the history of American racism.
