Did Their Lives Matter, Part II

...And of course who can forget all the black-on-black we see every day? More people are killed by such violence then cops could ever dare take away. Take all the dead from the rioting and, depressingly, you will all find it matches a weekend’s murder count in Chicago..let that sit in your mind. Are all their deaths somehow less tragic because their killers weren’t pale of flesh? I keep waiting for folks to address this, but at this point I won’t hold my breath. Speak of this and all the people bray that your evil and ‘victim-blaming,’ then they proclaim that ‘Black Lives Matter,’ but ignore their culture isn’t working. The worst of it, we should acknowledge, is the two hundred fifty black lives that are taken from us every day by the cuts of abortionist knives. To think of all those young lives cut short is horrific and so frightening, think of a medium-sized company every day up and disappearing. But if this fact is ever brought up, these same protestors act all appalled, they think this means that you ‘hate women,’ that those children have no rights at all! The fact that half of those kids are girls never seems to enter into their heads. They like to say ‘Black Lives Matter,’ but then make their very children dead. Now the great unifying factor that binds up all the hypocrisy is that they only seem to promote dark-skinned people if they are lefties. They do not talk of excessive force when pale people are shot down by cops, but if it happens in blue cities then they demand the whole country stop! They care not for a dark-skinned person who built up a good life through hard work, nor the future children of these towns, nor good people tired on the jerks. In fact the left resents these people, since you can’t control virtuous folk, the only Black Lives that matter to them are the ones who bring Democrats votes.
