Oops, We Started a Race War!

Oops, We Started a Race War! by Gavin McInnes.

On Tuesday, July 5, cops shot a Blood named Alton Sterling. The next day, police shot Crip Philando Castile. The media immediately played judge and jury, claiming Castile was “black and in the wrong place” and the Sterling case is proof that we “perpetuate racial group inequity.” …

Instead of saying, “Oops,” our politicians continued the media’s big lie by blaming everyone but the criminals themselves. Minnesota governor Mark Dayton said Castile’s killing was straight-up “racism.” Hillary chimed in soon after with “Alton Sterling Matters. Philando Castile Matters. Black Lives Matter.” After this kind of self-serving rhetoric exploded in Dallas, Obama doubled down, claiming the shooting was caused by “powerful weapons.” Then Jesse Jackson blamed Trump.

Black lives matter, but so do the facts. …

The stats get shifted around because blacks represent only about 13 percent of the population yet commit about half of all violent crime. It’s true that they are disproportionately stopped by police. It’s also true that there are a disproportionate number of problems with these stops. That doesn’t mean cops are corrupt—not even close. All it means is you’ve focused on a contentious area. …

Are the media and PC politicians going to accept some of the blame for creating the climate that led to Dallas?

The mainstream media and politicians who poured gas on the fire are culpable for the five officers we lost in Dallas Thursday night, but that doesn’t mean we absolve the black murderers. If I were told people of Scottish heritage were being hunted by police, I’d look it up before flying off the handle. Seeing a Facebook meme or a tweet doesn’t count as evidence. BLM and the rioters in Ferguson were taking a rumor and charging headlong into revenge without a second thought. …

The media and politically correct are certainly not going to go near racial differences, except for victimology and votes:

The left is petrified of this kind of thinking not just because they fear another Nazi party but because they themselves are National Socialists. They know that finding genetic differences means genocide because that’s the way they handle problems. In a sense, they’re scared of their own system and the ruthless punishments it will inflict.

The beauty of being a small-government conservative and a libertarian is this stuff never comes up. We don’t care what your group’s genetic predispositions are. If you personally can do the job, welcome aboard.
