Democrats have become the new apologists for bad behavior among black Americans.
Sad but true that it is young black men, the majority of whom come from broken homes, who are disproportionately terrorizing cities and killing each other.
But when Emmy award-winning anchor Wendy Bell referenced this, she was fired from Pittsburgh station WTAE.
In a March 21st Facebook posting, Bell talked disturbingly about the savage murder of a family of five siblings, cousins and a near full-term baby.
Bell's offense was to speculate that the two gunners were likely black. Something which many of us would also hypothesize but which we have been indoctrinated by the liberal, politically-correct obsessed media not to say.
“You needn't be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts two weeks ago Wednesday. They are young black men, likely teens or in their early 20s. They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before. They've grown up there. They know the police. They've been arrested.”
With the murder investigation ongoing, police refuse to release descriptions of the suspects, but I for one am confident that Bell’s assertion will be proven right.
In my new book, Con Job: How Democrats Gave Us Crime, Sanctuary Cities, Abortion Profiteering, and Racial Division, I write about the pathology of broken families and how they are resulting in the high crime that has become the hallmark of black America.
Today, 72% of black babies are born out of wedlock in the United States. And the consequences are dire: there is an exponential chance that those children will turn to crime rather than to work and education. In black America, the family unit is disintegrating. Facts point to black women increasingly having multiple babies with multiple fathers.
But why blame the Democrats? Because they perpetuate this bad behavior like a drug dealer feeding a junkie.
Instead of holding blacks accountable for their actions, Democrats instead make excuses for them. And then propose welfare polices which offer black women free housing and food stamps to compensate for absent fathers.
A 2010 Washington Post article “Longtime D.C. Welfare Recipients Prepare for Life off the Rolls,” described four single black welfare mothers who had a total of sixteen children and no husbands anywhere on the scene, (p. 39, Con Job).
Bell was astute in her analysis: because these women won’t parent their children properly and refuse to stop having more babies out of wedlock, their daughters grow up like them and their sons turn to crime.
The number one cause of death among black men ages 15 to 34 is homicide. More shocking is that 93% of all black homicide victims are killed by other blacks. Another trend I describe in my book Con Job.
Further, according to Justice Department data between 1980 to 2008, blacks were six times more likely to commit a homicide than whites and seven times more likely to be a homicide victim.
“There’s no nice words to write when a coward holding an AK-47 hoses down family and their friends sharing laughs and a mild evening on a back porch in Wilkinsburg,” Bell wrote on her Facebook page.
She added that when the children emerged from hiding, they found “their mother’s face blown off or their father’s twisted body leaking blood into the dirt from all the bullet holes.”
If Democrat presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders truly believe that "Black Lives Matter", then they should acknowledge the real causes, not perpetuate the myth that blacks are not responsible for their own behaviors. The Clinton and Sanders campaigns say they will end “the mass incarceration of blacks” by reforming our criminal justice system. But what needs reforming more urgently is blacks' attitudes toward marriage and family. Then and only then will the epidemic of black genocide end in cities like Chicago, Baltimore, DC, Milwaukee and Wilkinsburg.
Black on black crime is not just a statistic, it's an epidemic and it needs to be eradicated. And that begins with calling it out by name.
