In America, the most oppressed place that someone can be is in their own head.
That’s what those in Black Lives Matter don’t seem to understand. Their narrative of a war on the black community carried out by the police couldn’t be any more inaccurate. The statistics clearly show otherwise, which is why the movement puts too much emphasis on their narrative rather than facts. To give a sampling of some of those statistics, according to data compiled by The Washington Post, 50 percent of the victims of fatal police shootings were white, while 26 percent were black. The majority of these victims had a gun or “were armed or otherwise threatening the officer with potentially lethal force,” according to Mac Donald in a speech at Hillsdale College.
As the Daily Wire reported, “Black and Hispanic police officers are more likely to fire a gun at blacks than white officers. This is according to a Department of Justice report in 2015 about the Philadelphia Police Department, and is further confirmed by a study conducted University of Pennsylvania criminologist Greg Ridgeway in 2015 that determined black cops were 3.3 times more likely to fire a gun than other cops at a crime scene.”
And yet, the narrative prevails.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick dominated headlines with his protest of the national anthem, stating that he wouldn’t honor a nation “that oppresses black people.” Indeed, blacks are so oppressed in this country that they’d pay someone like Kaepernick $19 million a year to toss around a football!
It’s the fact that anyone can be successful in America despite their skin color that makes this country great – and it was an unlikely source that pointed that out the other day.
Lil Wayne dismissed the Black Lives Matter movement in a rare interview Tuesday night, saying America has made him the “rich motherf–-r” he is now.
“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothing to do with me,” the 33-year-old rapper told ABC journalist Linsey Davis.
Lil Wayne said the phrase “Black Lives Matter” didn’t make sense to him.
“What is it?” he asked. “That just sounds weird. I don’t know know that you put a name on it. It’s not a name, it’s not ‘whatever, whatever.’ It’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a f–ed-up reason.”
“I am a young, black, rich motherf–-r,” he said. “If that don’t let you know that America understand black motherf–—s matter these days, I don’t know what it is.”
The interview ended with Lil Wayne removing his microphone and angrily walking off set, saying: “I ain’t no f–ing politician.”
Good for him.
The reason liberals keep pushing a narrative of victimhood today, is because convincing people that they’re oppressed is the only way to keep them voting Democrat. Self-relient people don’t need the government’s help.
