The Left’s Callous Disinterest in Black Shooting Victims

Pages: 1 2

While Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were continuing to stir up racial animosity in Sanford Florida, one of the worst mass shootings in Florida history was taking place in Miami. Last Friday, 14 people were shot and two men were killed during a funeral for 21-year-old Morvin Andre. A 5-year-old girl was wounded in the exchange as well. Why no outrage or calls for massive demonstrations? Because the shooters were allegedly black gang members attending the funeral. In other words, there’s nothing that can be politically exploited here by those willing to ignore the harsh reality that, in the overwhelming majority of cases, black Americans are being victimized by other black Americans.

Thus, it was more than a little ironic that one day after former Black Panther Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) was demonstrating “solidarity” with Trayvon Martin by donning a hoodie during a speech in the U.S. House of Representatives last Wednesday, 13 people were shot and two were killed in a single night of violence. The worst shooting of the night left one man dead and five others wounded. They ranged in age from 16-24, and they were victims of two men wearing hoodies, who opened fire inside a convenience store.

That shooting took place in Bobby Rush’s district. As of this writing, he has had nothing to say about that incident, of any of the others that took place in his own city. He did however do an ABC interview–wearing a hoodie and sunglasses–where he explained the reason for his mini-protest at the House. “It seems like the lives of black men in this nation are not given the same value as the life of others, and there’s something wrong with that,” said Rush.

Rush is absolutely right, but like so many others with an agenda, he manages to remain willfully oblivious to reality. Those who place less value on the lives of black men are overwhelmingly other black men: the U.S. Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics found that between the years 2001 and 2005, nine-out-of-ten black murder victims were killed by other blacks. Seventy-five percent of those victims were killed with a gun. The DOJ also determined that homicide is the leading cause of death for black males between the ages of 15 and 34.

Unfortunately, Delric Miller IV will never even reach the low-end age of that disturbing age demographic. Delric was killed in February when a gunman brandishing an AK-47 pumped 37 bullets into his home on the west side of Detroit Michigan. “Again, adult behavior has brought another child in Detroit to an end,” said Police Chief Ralph Godbee at a press conference. “It’s actually amazing that more people in that house were not killed. There’s no question about it. This is gang-related,” he added.

Delric was nine months old.

Both this shooting and the one in Miami reveal another unpleasant and rarely-talked about reality behind much of the violence that afflicts black America. Much of the killing is senseless. According to police, the Miami funeral turned into a shooting gallery because someone at the wake touched Morvin Andre’s body in a way deemed disrespectful by other gang members in attendance. This “disrespect” triggered an argument that triggered the shooting. Delric Miller’s death was purportedly the result of his mother, Diamond Salter, getting into an argument with another women over limited seating at a baby shower. “The shower was overbooked, and there was an argument because there weren’t enough seats,” Cynthia Wilkins, Delric’s grandmother told the Detroit News. Ms. Salter was followed home by a group of men and women, one of whom is believed to have perpetrated the shooting at 4:30 a.m. the next day.

Two other killings make even less sense. Twelve-year-old Kade’jah Davis was killed in Detroit when a gunman fired shots into her home — allegedly as a result of a dispute over a cell phone. In the same city, 17-year-old Je’Rean Blake was killed when a man on a moped allegedly didn’t like the look on Blake’s face. The man returned with a gun and sprayed bullets into a crowd, killing Blake in the process.

Such is the “value of life” as it is measured far too many times within black American communities. In Philadelphia, according to statistics from the Philadelphia PD, 75 percent of 324 victims killed last year were black men, 80 percent of whom were killed by black males. In the first three months of this year, Chicago, the city with the highest murder rate in the nation, has been victimized by 114 homicides, a 35 percent increase compared to the same period last year. In New York City, 83 percent of all gun assailants were black during the first six months of 2008. Overall, the homicide rate for black men between the ages of 18 and 24 is well over ten times that of whites. And lest anyone think that such killing is equally divided among the races, completed law-enforcement investigations in 2009 reveal that 352 blacks were killed by known whites–a category that includes Latinos–while 4,094 blacks were killed by other blacks, according to FBI data.

    How dare you wicked Zionist Khazar pig jews pretend like you care about blacks folks.

      Do you not read your own posts before you submit them? By the wording, it isn’t hard to assume that you hate Jews. Can you not see your hypocrisy? The stuff you said reminds me of the hate spewed by the New Black Panthers.

      Oh, and you’re also a troll.

      He has changed the website he previously linked to. It used to be a Neo Nazi website, now it is a Black Israelite, Farrakhan, jumbled mess of a website. These folks are so confused I imagine they have problems telling their a$$es from their elbows.

    • Whatsinaname

      You "black israelites" as you so stupidly call yourselves are nothing but a bunch of fatherless losers. It's funny that when Hitler was killing all the Jews and the world hated the Jews, then there was no such thing as "black israelites." It wasn't convenient then, there was no Israel to steal and no one who wasn't a Jew wanted to be considered one. What happened? Blacks like you couldn't tie your shoes without a white person telling you how. No wonder your fathers abandon you — who wouldn't, you piece of garbage!

      Now that there is one smart negro.

  • PhillipGaley

    I think that, in the 2nd paragrath, there should be a comma after "former Black Panther" and before, "Rep. Bobby Rush", to read: ". . . . after former Black Panther, Rep. Bobby Rush . . . .", or perhaps more complete as: ". . . . after former Black Panther, now U.S. Democrat Representative from Illinois, Bobby Rush . . . .".

    Also, for the current American young man Black death syndrome summed up as: "This is the lesson from the Trayvon Martin tragedy.", I would say rather, if in some picture of untimely death, any young man who presents in a grille and filthy communication, may appear as not incongruously or inappropriately placed, . . .

    • PhillipGaley

      Or more plainly and correctly, for that summed up as: "This is the lesson from the Trayvon Martin tragedy.", I would say rather, "For the Trayvon Martin fate as but one appearing in the current young American Black man death syndrome, if suddenly filling in a story-line of some picture of untimely death, . . . anyone whose lifestyle is to present in a grille and filthy communication, must accept his placement not as that of an incongruous or unbelievable setting.".

  • Bamaguje

    Black kills White or other Blacks; that's dog-biting-man story – not newsworthy.
    White kills Black; that's man-biting-dog story – very newsworthy for race hustlers & lamestream media salivating for racist White-on-Black hate crimes.
    In other words we Blacks are the dogs who aren't expected to know better. What an insult on we Negroids!!

    • jacob

      BAMAGUJE :

      ISN'T THE PROOF IN THE PUDDING ?????
      How about dogs that even bite the hand that feeds them ????

    • MIchelle

      But Zimmerman is not white, he is HISPANIC!!!! Again why is obama referred to as black ignoring his 50% white half while Zimmerman is referred to as white and ignoring his 50% hispanic half? Oh right it is a racist thing isn't it?

      • fiddler

        Don't ask them to be consistent; too inconvenient.

  • jacob

    Talking about "former" Panther BOBBY RUSH, I believe that if the Speaker of the House would have been
    someone with "COJONES" other than BOEHMER, Rep. Rush wouldn't be allowed sporting a "hoodie"…

    OR WOULD HE ?????

  • Rayban64

    Why no outrage in the black community or among black political leaders? Because htere’s nothing that can be politically exploited here by those willing to ignore the harsh reality that, in the overwhelming majority of cases, black Americans are being victimized by other black Americans. So in order to "prove" just how racist white people are the news and the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton …have to make up an entirely new race class ~ the "white-hispanic". This word never existed before this incident. Notice how white is shoved in there first. That is to show that it was probably his white racist side that took over and made him gun down a black man. So doesn't that make President Obama a "white-african-american"?

  • tagalog

    Did anybody watch TV to see Rush wearing his hoodie and sunglasses to discuss the Trayvon Martin case? I bet he looked threatening.

  • MethanP

    Lets not change the subject. I suspect that is exactly DeSawns purpose. The Martin/Zimmerman affair has been carefully nurtured by the usual suspects on the left. Jackson/Sharpton et-al are using this to regain their lost relevance. The Obama administration is diverting attention from "openmike gate" and his political failures and the likely (as of this date) SCOTUS defeat of his signiture healthcare bill. The leftists are always looking for a fight. The Brady Campaign et-al are looking to role back the rescent string of pro gun victory's. And the MSM is more than happy to carry the lefts' water. Bonus: It bleeds it leads. So please, people. Lets not lose sight of the target. The actual shooting is almost incidental to the people "fighting for Trevon". This is leftist theater at its lowest.

    By the way. I believe, based on the 911 log, that George Zimmerman was in the wrong. He was told not to follow. Not to leave his vehicle. Police were on the way. This has nothing to do with "stand your ground" He pursued.

  • fiddler

    Important snippet:

    "In the first three months of this year, Chicago, the city with the highest murder rate in the nation, has been victimized by 114 homicides, a 35 percent increase compared to the same period last year."

    Such is the Nirvana of this Leftist enclave. I wonder if the president is concerned about his home state?

  • Jim_C

    "The Left's Callous Disinterest"…as opposed to the Right's compassionate concern?

    LOL

  • trickyblain

    "None of them have elicited the kind of protests that have attended the death of Trayvon Martin.

    Why not?"

    Simple. Becuase of the appearance that the police swept the investigation under the rug until the media spotlight turned on Sanford. That's what FPM keeps missing over and over, but is in reality the core issue.

    That said, NBC editing the audio in the manner is damn unprofessional.
