It is the ignorant refrain sung by white racists here at USMB.

Blacks who murder other blacks get prison sentences. This is called justice. Police get paid leave and the pig who murdered George Floyd will get paid pension. Police rarely even get indicted for killing us, much less go to trial. That's not justice. BLM and those supporting this cause are asking that justice be equally applied.

Why Black Lives Matter doesn't focus on ‘black-on-black’ crime
Josh Hafner
USA TODAY

The Black Lives Matter movement is in the national spotlight again this month, following the high-profile killings of two black men by police and the killings of police officers by black men in Dallas and Baton Rouge.

With the movement’s attention comes a familiar refrain: Why doesn’t Black Lives Matter focus on “black-on-black” crime?

It’s a question asked, in various forms, from Facebook to cable networks to comments on this site. The answer, one writer says, is Black Lives Matter isn’t solely focused on the loss of black lives but also on a lack of justice.

“When a civilian has committed a violent crime, they’re generally arrested, tried and then convicted,” Franchesca Ramsey, a writer and activist who discusses race, explains in the MTV series Decoded (which you can watch here in full).

“Conversely, there’s a lot of evidence that it’s very rare to secure an indictment against a police officer for excessive force. And an indictment is just a trial; it isn’t even a conviction.”

“Black Lives Matter isn’t just about the loss of life, which is always terrible. It’s about the lack of consequences when black lives are taken at the hands of police.”

The vast majority of Black on Black murders go unresolved. You know this, get real. One of the main reasons they go unresolved is the refusal of the good people living in the inner cities to give police any information on the murderers.

Besides that, if BLM was truly concerned about the "Black Lives" doesn't that also mean quality of life? Why wouldn't they be marching in protest of the appalling conditions of the inner cities? Those are the spawning beds for nearly all of the gang related and random Black on Black murders. You are doing a disservice to your own people by accepting what the Democrat leaders allow to happen year after year in those war zones.

BLM would at least have SOME credibility if they marched in Chicago, Baltimore, Oakland, LA, etc. protesting the Democrat shit holes where these poor people have to try and live.

If there were protests every time a black person murdered another person, regardless of color, there would be no peace in this world.
In 2018 according to the FBI Uniform Crime Reports, 3,315 whites were murdered. 2,925 blacks were murdered. So in addition to the fact that 81 percent of all whites who were killed were killed by another white person, more whites were killed than blacks. Even more important in debunking this lie of black attacks and killing is the fact that more whites killed each other(2677) than blacks who killed each other(2600). So again, the media has not hidden black on white crime, but it has ignored white on white crime by description. White on white crime is always claimed to be caused by a malady such as mental instability or by the use of the lone wolf excuse.

STFU.

Every white liberal that talk(s) shit about supporting BLM, but does not support defunding the police,

are telling you that they think you are stupid enough to be fooled by words, while their actions are completely differnent.


Are you a cuck like them, to let someone disrespect you and to just take it like a bitch?

The appalling conditions of inner cities are created by white landlords who live in the suburbs. Your ignorance allows you to dismiss this reality. And since your ilk likes to use Chicago for every example;

" Chicago’s 2015 mayoral race was one of the most expensive in the nation’s history, with big donors playing an outsized role in financing both candidates’ campaigns. In fact, over 90 percent of the money raised by the two major candidates came from donors giving more than $1,000, and more than half (52%) came from donors outside of the city.[1] Both the Chicago mayoral and council elections are primarily financed by white, male donors who don’t reflect the racial and class diversity of the city’s residents. The experience in Chicago is emblematic of national elections, where a small cadre of white major donors—.01 percent—accounted for over 40 percent of all campaign contributions.[2] New research provides disturbing evidence that the financing of our elections by a small group of big donors has very real consequences in terms of the public policies that get enacted.[3] In fact, when the preferences of the donor class diverge with those of the average voter, it is the donor class’s preferences that win. But donors and voters don’t always agree. For example, while 34% of non-donors living in Chicago support the Bowles-Simpson austerity plan, 62% of Chicago donors do. The preferences of the white, male and rich donor class diverge strongly from ordinary Chicagoans but it’s their agenda that’s being implemented. "


D.C.’s White Donor Class: Outsized Influence in a Diverse City

Key Findings

  • The donor class doesn’t represent the diversity of Washington D.C.’s population. While 37 percent of D.C.’s population is white, 62 percent of mayoral donors and 67 percent of City Council donors are white.
  • The rich are disproportionately represented in the donor class. Only a quarter of D.C.’s adult population makes more than $100,000, but 59 percent of council donors and 61 percent of mayoral donors do.
  • The pool of donors who make small donations is more representative than the pool of those who make large donations. Women make up about half of those giving less than $50 to mayoral and council races, but only 31 percent of those giving more than $1,000. People of color make up 47 percent of mayoral donors giving less than $25, but 31 percent of those giving more than $1,000.
  • The small donor pool contains more income diversity as well. Those making $100,000 or more comprise 44 percent of donors giving $25 or less to mayoral candidates, but 72 percent of those giving $1,000 or more.
  • Mayoral candidates relied heavily on big donors, raising less than 7 percent of their total funds from donors giving less than $100, and 67 percent from donors giving more than $1,000.
  • A system of public financing would increase the diversity of D.C.’s donor class, leading to more responsive policymaking.

You do that. Your plumbers butt is unsightly.
Here's a suggestion, if you have never spent any time in the black community, don't speak on issues that affect blacks.
