  • Police Violence against Black Men Is Rare

    10/16/2017 11:55:14 AM PDT · by TBP · 18 replies
    National Review ^ | September 18, 2017 | Phillippe Lemoine
    In reality, a randomly selected black man is overwhelmingly unlikely to be victim of police violence — and though white men experience such violence even less often, the disparity is consistent with the racial gap in violent crime, suggesting that the role of racial bias is small. Last year, according to the Washington Post’s tally, just 16 unarmed black men, out of a population of more than 20 million, were killed by the police. The year before, the number was 36. These figures are likely close to the number of black men struck by lightning in a given year, considering...

    Image from officialblackgunsmatter.com For years, I have been writing the urban black community is a natural place to recruit Second Amendment activists. The people there are those most in need of guns for self defense.  John Lott came to the same conclusion with academic studies of who benefits most from concealed carry laws. Second Amendment activists have long said that firearms training increases responsibility and maturity. It has worked in rural areas. It should work in urban centers. Maj Toure decided to take that concept and run with it.  Maj is one of a number of black firearms activists...

    OCEAN CITY — A group of men from Pennsylvania was charged with assaulting lifeguards Tuesday afternoon on the beach near Eighth Street and attempting to flee by running through Gillian’s Wonderland Pier. About 4:30 p.m., police were called to the 800 block of the beach to assist lifeguards with several intoxicated and loud people causing a disturbance, police said. The men, who were assaulting the lifeguards when they arrived, turned their aggression toward the officers, police said.

    Tuesday night (Sept. 20), 38-year-old Travon Williams lay dead on the pavement outside a small grocery store at the intersection of North Claiborne Avenue and Desire Street. Fatally shot, Williams had followed a grim pattern running through his family, a well-worn groove of untimely, violent deaths. According to those who knew him, Williams had spent the past few years of his life trying to build better relationships with his daughters -- and trying to free himself from a tragic legacy. At age 5, Williams lost his 24-year-old mother to gunfire at a Desire neighborhood barroom. Gretchen Williams of Desire was...

    CJ Pearson is an iconoclastic 14-year-old political activist who has been in the public eye for the last couple of years. The young, black wunderkind has tweaked the noses of political big shots with his popular videos and has appeared on several radio and TV shows.Now, an op-ed he wrote for Time Magazine about his support for Donald Trump has brought an avalanche of hate to the Georgia high schooler from supposed 'adults.' Pearson called on Hillary Clinton to disavow her supporters who are sending him horrible messages:

    After threatening to sue, the Chicago Tribune has obtained data from the city’s police department that tracks every time an officer has opened fire in the city over the past six years. The vast majority of those hit were black men or boys. There were 435 police shootings from 2010 through 2015, in which officers killed 92 people and wounded 170 others. In all, officers fired 2,623 bullets. The newspaper’s findings show about four out of every five people shot were African-American males. It found that about half of the officers involved were African-American or Hispanic and most of them...

    America does not really have a "gun violence" problem.  America has a violent urban black culture problem.  If you want to look at the numbers more closely, you can add in a violent illegal immigrant problem. There is a common theme that has become an Internet cliché when a young black man is shot and killed in the middle of a violent crime. "He was such a nice boy." "He was turning his life around." "He was an aspiring rap star." "They didn't have to shoot him." It is refreshing when the mother of a young black man shot...

    Over the last several months—and especially the last few weeks—much has been made of the “Ferguson effect.” The phenomenon is now so widely discussed that it has its own Wikipedia page (though I wouldn’t suggest visiting it for an explanation). St. Louis police chief Sam Dotson coined the phrase in November of 2014, but Heather MacDonald popularized it in a Wall Street Journal op-ed in 2015... Again, out-of-wedlock births in the U.S. are at historic highs, and the vast majority of black children in America are born to single mothers. And just as criminal gangs and other undesirables fill the...

Charles Kinsey can be seen and heard pleading with the North Miami officers that their weapons were not necessary, and that the autistic man was carrying only a toy truck, according to WSVN-TV. “When I went to the ground, I’m going to the ground just like this here with my hands up,” Kinsey told the station from his...

    The majority of the panel on Tuesday’s The View were furious about former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s speech defending police officers at the RNC last night. Panelists Joy Behar, CNN’s Sunny Hostin, ABC’s Sara Haines and Whoopi Goldberg blasted the Mayor for his tone and message, calling him “nutty,” “berserk” “lunatic” and “divisive” while FNC’s Jedediah Bila was the only panelist to defend Giuliani’s speech. Whoopi began by asking the panel what they thought about Giuliani’s speech. Behar bluntly said, to laughter and applause, “I think he stole that speech from Mussolini.” Not to be outdone, Hostin had...

West asked the questions in an open letter titled, “Questions from a Black Man.” Questions included “are you afraid of me because of the color of his skin?” West says the questions are what many black Americans feel. For instance, West asked the National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice if they have similar feelings?
