New study SHREDS #BlackLivesMatter narrative
If the #BlackLivesMatter movement cared about black lives, they have a lot of problems they can address.
Failing public schools, gang violence, and the prevalence of single motherhood all disproportionately affect the black community. But when’s the last time you heard someone in the BLM movement draw attention to those issues?
Instead they’ve focused on the issue of police violence, arguing that blacks are disproportionately mistreated by and killed by police. So are they right?
As CNS News reports:
A new think tank report takes aim at the Black Lives Matter movement’s contention that law enforcement’s use of lethal force unequally targets blacks compared to other racial or ethnic groups.
According to the report by the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, not only are a higher percentage of whites and Hispanics killed by police, the greater threat to blacks comes from violent criminals within their own communities.
“The evidence does not support the conclusion that American police are waging a racist war against blacks,” Manhattan senior fellow Heather Mac Donald writes.
