The Cops Are the Real Stars

It’s a total utter lie that police shootings are a major cause of black deaths. The data is that maybe 1/10 of one per cent of black violent deaths are caused by the police. And almost none of those were of UNARMED black men.

Of the roughly 30,000 gun deaths per year… two-thirds are suicides. The huge majority of the rest are black-on-black gang and drug related shootings.

The Obama clique makes no effort at all to rein in these gangs. The gangs kill and no one proposes any laws about it at all.

The idea that the police are a major cause of black mortality is nonsense. The police extend. black lifespans by protecting black neighborhoods from blacks.

There is a giant super crisis among blacks: Violence. Drugs. The collapse of the family. Pitiful education. Low participation in the labor force. None of this is caused by the police.

The police are the heroes of the black community. Black and white and Hispanic and Asian they take their lives in their hands every day to take the killers off the streets. The cops are the real stars.
