Former BLM leader sounds off on group's ugly truth

I believed the organization stood for exactly what the name implies – Black lives do matter. However, after a year on the inside, I learned they had little concern for rebuilding Black families," he added.

BLACK LIVES MATTER REMOVES ‘WHAT WE BELIEVE’ WEBSITE PAGE CALLING TO ‘DISRUPT … NUCLEAR FAMILY STRUCTURE’

Turner's video, published to YouTube last week, highlighted how the group's website stated that it wanted to "disrupt the nuclear family structure."
Defunding the police is racist

In Seattle, the city council ran out the department's first female black police chief, then cut the budget by 20 percent. Officers have abandoned the force in historic numbers due to politically motivated attacks on the police. Predictably, Seattle then saw a 26-year-high homicide rate. And while the black population of Seattle is about 7 percent, black victims accounted for 49 percent of Seattle homicides.

The more things I see happening elsewhere, the happier I am to live in Montgomery County, Texas.

Although I have heard that some Conroe ISD schools are teaching elements of CRT. It will be interesting to see the backlash from that.

for all of the talk and concerns about racism.... THIS is IMO the most egregious part and yet we so rarely talk about it.

Whether the cause is white supremacists, poverty/desperation, gangs/drugs or anything else, I don't care. Whomever is the cause, it needs to be addressed... and DIRECTLY, not merely in some sort of tertiary way.

What frustrates me so much about the way this has been attacked is that I believe the above should be the primary focus of anyone who does not see the world as a racist does... and yet those who most vocally claim to be champions for racial minorities seem to be the ones least likely to want to even talk about it

The murder rates with black victims, everywhere, is way out of proportion to the racial composition. Iirc, I saw a number on I think it was the 2019 murder break down, out of 14k or so murders, 7500 or so were blacks.

Subdividing by gender, iirc there were 10k murders of males. Something on the order of 6500 were blacks.

And in the statistics, these are not all 'cop shoots Michael Brown' --- they are for the most part the vast majority non-cop, black on black violence.

I dont think there is a driving 'whomever' the cause, lets address the 'whatever' the cause.

I described 'whatever', and said 'whomever', so we are in agreement.

I simply meant that the problem is that black people are being murdered... and I want that addressed, regardless of the race of the perpetrator. I see focusing on the race of the criminal as being an act of racism.... and dividing us on an issue that should be uniting us.

I think focusing on causes and perpetrators is the first step to eliminating the problem. We could not fight yellow fever until we had identified the carrier, mosquitoes.
hidden costs of defunding the police

by Ronald J. Allen, the John Henry Wigmore professor of law at the Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law

Much commentary trumpets that there is a slaughter of innocent, mostly black people at the hands of out-of-control police forces and that the solution to the problem is to cut back on law enforcement authorized to use force to maintain public order. This is wrong on just about every count, save one — there is indeed a slaughter going on, but not at the hands of the police.
I have heard it said that approx. 93% of people in US incarcerated are males...

Of these appr. 85% came from "fatherless" families, i.e. families where father was either never present in their lives, of only limited presence (most often due to no-fault divorce laws and/or court-ordered restrictions on their freely exercising their rights as fathers)...

And of these fully 70% will themselves end up incarcerated at least once, and many multiple times in their lives...

So, it seems, the greatest (and simplest) part of the answer to solve the crime/imprisonment issues, especially in groups of folks who happen to be darker than blue, as Curtis put it, is to stop separating fathers from families and instead encourage them to stay and participate...

For those who are redistributionists, of which it appears there are many, how about re-distributing the rights of fathers and taxing those who break up families in the first place?

Repealing no-fault laws, requiring grounds when there are children present, strenghtehning and incentivising marriage as the primary and best option for most people and backing it up with tax breaks the longer spouses are married to the same individual, while heavily taxing those who are serial family-breakers as a fair tax on the real damage and cost to our communities and our society?

The statistic that half of all marriages end in divorce is FALSE...
the truth is that only about 30% of marriages end in divorce...
the numbers are skewed artifically by those individulas who practice serial marriage and divorce over and over...
a practice and habit that Must End if these communities and families are to ever be saved.

For those who are uninterested in marriage, and just baby-momma-ing or baby-poppaing, find ways to simultaneously disincentivise that behavior through the tax system similar to the sin tax on cigarettes. You may never stop it completely, put you can stop allowing welfare payments for it, allowing food stamps for it, allowing its institutuionalization to run rampant in communities with no push-back or checks, and then support and encourage those institutions that support and encourage good, responsible behavior.
That would be a real start to showing that these lives actually matter.
Portland violence

In the past nine months, the department has experienced a rapid turnover with more than 120 officers having left the department, many citing low morale and burnout from nightly racial justice protests that would end in confrontation and plumes of tear gas.

Despite police pleas for more personnel, city leaders slashed $27 million from the police budget -- $11 million due to the pandemic-caused budget crisis and $15 million amid calls to defund the police -- vowing to devote money to community groups working to curb gun violence.



Just goes to show how stupid the progressive movement is. Somebody explain to me how gang shootings correct for 100 year old Jim Crow laws.
You cant make this stuff up:

Quote:“Amid increased scrutiny of Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Coullor’s lavish spending, including her reported purchases of multiple homes totaling upward of $3 million and the installation of fencing and an electric gate around one of those homes, the original ten BLM chapters are demanding more accountability and transparency from the BLM global network.”

I wonder if BLM will now protest outside the security gates of one of its founders? lmao.

Never knew the acceptable alternate spelling of BLM was g-r-i-f-t

Of the three, the one that most concerns me is #3. If course, this attitude completely matches the Kaepernick attitude. And the hammer thrower attitude. and a lot of other people's attitude, including a lot of guilty white liberals.

I think we ought to set aside 100 billion to pay the way for those who feel oppressed or who think this is an oppressive country to emigrate to the country of their choice. No need to force them to stay where they are oppressed. Sounds like a win-win for everybody concerned.

But one way tickets only.

Interesting that she plans to donate $1 to AOC for every response that does not agree.

AOC? The prominent Democrat?

Memo

Owl 69/70/75 to Lex Scott

We know you are not safe to be around. We know you are a racist. We know that you live in a different USA than we do. We question your intelligence. We know to avoid you. You are a symbol of hatred.
On the subject of black lives, STARZ is starting a new prequel to the Power series next Sunday, the 18th, called Raising Kanan. Some of you may have noticed that I have touted the previous two shows, Power and Power Book II.

Well done, and apolitical, these shows are about black people by black people.
Walt whitman statue to be relocated

"Their recommendations include the relocation of a statue of Walt Whitman from in front of our Campus Center to another site on campus—in a garden space near a century-old tree—where the statue can be displayed with accompanying contextual information within the coming months."

sound familiar?
