Has anyone asked the question, “Has there been a noticeable decrease in police murders of Black people since #BLACKLIVESMATTER arrived on the scene?”
Without even bothering to add links, I can answer that. No! There has been no decrease, noticeable or otherwise, in police murders of Black people since #BLACKLIVESMATTER arrived on the scene. And if you need proof,’archive’ this blog to your heart’s content.
#BLACKLIVESMATTER is just a diversionary tactic used to divert Black people away from what we should be doing. It is the same tactic that was used during the Civil Rights Movement when Black unrest was at an all-time high and Black militant groups were gaining members by the hundreds. Along comes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and his merry band of tireless protesters, complete with pictures of Black people getting hosed down, pictures of dogs sicced on them; the whole nine yards.
“Be peaceful about it, Black folks! Don’t fuck shit up! Don’t burn shit down! Let’s sit down and talk calmly and quietly about that ‘whites only’ water fountain and that ‘whites only’ restaurant entrance and the ‘blacks only’ water fountain and the ‘blacks only’ restaurant entrance and so forth and so on. If you must protest, then go about it all peaceful like. Take this here Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., as an example. We have trained him well. He is all dressed up in a suit and tie, carrying a bible and giving eloquent speeches of his dreams. We don’t give a shit for his dreams, but hey! He is allowed to dream and that is all he is allowed to do. We have him in a jail cell right now, just a’dreaming and some more shit. But he is useful, see? He is the calm and that is what we want, not the storm!”
Fast forward to today and along comes the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement right when Black folks are getting beyond fed the fuck up with the ever mounting statistics of Black people getting themselves murdered by racist ass KKKops and for no other reason than over the color of their skin. Yet again, Black people are stopped in their tracks from fucking shit up and burning shit down by the sight of protesters, AGAIN, marching with fifty year-old protest signs that have been dusted off and brought out into the light of day in the year of no lord 2015. #BLACKLIVESMATTER is being used as a diversion to deter Black people from going the fuck off by showing them that the way to go about effecting change is to continue with the same lame ass protesting and marching that Dr. King and his crew engaged in.
Let me ask you another question. What did Martin Luther King Jr., and crew accomplish back in the 1960s? Did not the Supreme Court just recently gut the hell out of the Voting Rights Act of 1965? Indeed it did. But you say, “There are no ‘whites’ or ‘Blacks’ only water fountains and restaurants anymore? Really? I’ll put it to you this way, those signs are no longer needed and here’s why. Check the price of lunch at an exclusive country club, restaurant or hotel, can you afford it? Here is a hint. The ‘official’ unemployment rate for Black men is 12.4%, but we all know THAT’S a lie! So, when you cannot afford to keep a roof over your head, you sure as hell cannot afford to pay for lunch in an upscale eating establishment. And ‘white’ folks, don’t even bother coming up in here exclaiming that you can’t either. Cry me a river! This ain’t about you! Maybe everything else is, but not this! It is certainly not MY fault that your own kind left some of you in the dust! Deal with it! You’ve still got less to deal with than we do!
But I digress! Back on topic. When the people started burning shit down in Baltimore during the Freddie Gray riots, the National Guard was called in, a curfew was enacted and the long arm of the KKKlaw nipped that shit in the bud with militarized armored vehicles that had been deployed in actual war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq. The sole purpose was to prevent a halt to capitalism; that which makes the world go round. When you halt capitalism, you fuck up the white man’s day. He can’t have that. The wheels of capitalism must grind because that is how he gets his huge ass bonus check; that is why the stockholders laugh all the way to the goddamn bank. Put a halt to that shit and nobody’s laughing. So, to put you in check, Black people, a new ‘movement’ was introduced, #BLACKLIVESMATTER! It is designed to make you think that you are doing something constructive about all of the shit that is flung at you. It is designed to make sure that you continue to ‘peacefully’ march down the goddamn street and do nothing to starve the beast called, “Capitalism!” It is to ensure your quiet quiescence to the continuation of slavery. Slaves are needed in prison to fill all the orders for capitalism’s expansion. Slaves are also necessary to be picked bone dry by debt collectors, payday loan companies, furniture rental stores and the like. You have only two purposes; one is to be a slave in every way and the other one is to die because it has been estimated that in the not too distant future, the white man will become the minority in AmeriKKKa. He cannot have that. The white man wants his cake and he wants to eat it too. This means that you must play by his rules and if you don’t, then you must die. But then, you must die anyway because the world contains more Black and Brown bodies than it does white ones. Why do you think that wars were started in the Middle East? Oh, in some respects, oil has something to do with it, but it is about much more than that. ISIS is just another diversionary tactic used by the white man to kill off even more of the Brown-skinned variety while enhancing capitalism in the form of weapons for those wars of naked aggression. I mean..uh.. those ‘humanitarian’ wars of naked aggression Oh he’s good! I’ll give him that. He is evil’s own spawn!
If you have fallen for the diversionary tactic that is #BLACKLIVESMATTER, then you can just stop. You can put down your protest sign. You can put away your marching shoes, they won’t do you any good. They are not supposed to. The only thing #BLACKLIVESMATTER is good for is to make you think that you are doing something constructive about police murder of Black people, racism, police brutality, a school-to-prison pipeline, income inequality, mass unemployment and underemployment otherwise known as ‘low-wage jobs, homelessness, addiction and mass incarceration. But you’re not doing a goddamn thing about any of that. You are only pissing in the wind. How does it taste?
