There were two slogans that became common in the black community. One was to put both hands high in the air and call out, “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” The Liberals jumped on the band wagon with that one really hard and it was even being done on the floors of both the House and the Senate. That is still hanging around a little, but for the most part it has dropped by the way side. The other was, “Black lives matter!” It is still hanging on strong and has become a part of political correctness.

Every time there is a march or demonstration the blacks will be seen carrying signs proclaiming “Black lives matter,” and often the people will chant those words too. That one is hanging on strong.

A few days back, Can do no wrong Hillary Clinton made a statement that all lives matter. She got her hands slapped by the Liberal left for that. It is really a serious matter when Hillary gets criticized by the left for anything. No matter what it is there is always a flock of media personalities rushing to spin it in her defense.

Now, Maryland Governor O”Malley, running for president said on a TV show that all lives matter – both black and white. Immediately he came under a great deal of criticism for saying that. It seems that the politically correct thing these days is that you are only allowed to say, “Black lives matter.” You are not allowed to say anybody else’s life matters, but only that Black lives matter.

A black news person on TV it seems, came to his defense. He said that he as a black man found nothing wrong in saying all lives matter and not saying only that Black lives matter. Immediately on Twitter people are calling him all kinds of names. They have called him an Uncle Tom and that he is a traitor to his race and they won’t ever listen to him on TV anymore and all kinds of foolishness. I guess now it is a crime in the Liberal eye, to value any life other than black.

I have to ask myself why? To me it is obvious they themselves do not believe Black lives matter. They don’t give a damn about Black lives. A black life doesn’t matter to them at all. For a very long time there have been millions of babies that have been killed by abortion. The great majority of those babies are black. How can this be if they really believe that Black lives matter?

In every city in the country almost, there are a large number of murders. The majority of those who are murdered happen to be black people. More than 90% of those murders of black people are committed by black people. How can this be if they really believe Black lives matter?

No, I don’t think Black lives matter. I guess they really do but the black people in the country don’t believe it. If they did they would stop having all those abortions. If they did they would stop killing each other. No, it is not that Black lives matter at all. They can kill each other all day long every day and it doesn’t bother them one bit. The slogan, “Black lives matter,” is not true at all.

So what is the truth? The truth is that Black lives matter only when the life is taken by a cop or a white person. Then and only then does it matter. All other times when black lives are being taken by other blacks, they matter not at all. They prove it to us every day.

If it doesn’t involve a cop or a white person, it doesn’t even get reported in the news. It isn’t considered to be important enough. It will be superseded by Kim Kardashian getting a divorce or baring herself on a beach or Obama taking a selfie with a blonde. Those things will be deemed more newsworthy. I can only conclude from the conduct of the black community itself, Black lives don’t really matter./ That is just a slogan to use for political correctness or to justify looting and burning when a black person is killed by a white person or a cop. The black people themselves don’t believe Black lives matter. It is evident by their conduct. Why then, do they think anyone else should think their lives matter when they do not?
