DO BLACK LIVES MATTER TO BLACK LIVES MATTER?

Murder of Secoriea Turner raises questions about Black Lives Matter

If Black Lives Matter was true to its name, there would be as much global outrage over the death of eight year old Secoriea Turner, gunned down by anti-police protesters in Atlanta Sunday night, as there was for George Floyd.

According to local authorities, Turner was out with her mother and a friend when they tried to park near a burnt out fast food restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was killed in a scuffle with police last month – and which has been occupied by demonstrators ever since.

Police say a group of demonstrators who had been blocking the site confronted the family.

“At some point, someone in that group opened fire on the vehicle, striking it multiple times and striking the child who was inside. The driver then drove to Atlanta Medical Center for help”, but it was too late for little Secoriea, officials said.

It’s only the latest outrage to occur in the past several weeks of civil unrest that have seen legitimate grievances over police brutality and the killing of George Floyd be hijacked by Black Lives Matter, a group with a more radical agendas than simply reforming law enforcement and fighting police brutality. . . .

After New York City disbanded an elite NYPD anti-crime unit, shootings rose in the last two weeks of June by 205 per cent – and gunshot injuries likewise increased by 238 per cent over the same period the previous year.

And many if not most of the victims have been African-American.

As Hazel Thomas, whose 35 year old son Jomo Glasgow was murdered outside a party in Brooklyn told the New York Post, “I feel like we are giving the streets back to criminals”.

Or as Secoriea Turner’s tearful father, Secoriya Williamson, told local media in Atlanta, “They say black lives matter … but you killed your own this time. You killed a child. She didn’t do nothing to nobody.”

Of course, there won’t be any BLM protest marches held in honour of Jomo, little Secoriea, or any of the other innocents of any race slain in the ensuing crime wave.

Nope. It’s not in the interest of the powers that be.

VERY SHOCKED FACE, MINE IS:  Domestic Terrorism – Black Lives Matter “Protestors” Murder 8-Year-Old Black Child…

Atlanta Georgia has erupted into a lawless society as a willfully complicit Atlanta Mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms, attempts to avoid her role in the murder of an 8-year-old child as violent Black Lives Matter protestors run amok in the city.

On Saturday night about 9:30, Charmaine Turner and her daughter were driving with a friend when they attempted to turn into a store near a group of armed Black Lives Matter protestors.  Two of the BLM activists opened fire on their vehicle for not complying with their unlawful roadblock, and 8-year-old Secoriea Turner was shot.  She died in her mothers arms as they attempted to escape the area and get to a hospital.

Just a thought

If black people are REALLY serious about addressing racism, first, they need to put aside a single issue group like BLM. Essentially, BLM wants to dictatorially impose their agenda on white people. Let’s be clear. Black people are 13% of the population. White people are 61% of the population. It just isn’t going to happen. But let’s fix what’s wrong.

Including black people, either NOBODY is racist, or it’s all bullshit.

And that includes cleaning up that cesspool of racist phrases: rap music. Also. apparently, there is a “cool” about black people calling each other the “n” word and other racist terms. That too needs ending. There will never be cooperation if someone is “allowed” to say it, and someone isn’t. That’s racist in itself.

As a gleaming white guy, who is automatically “racist,” this would work for me. Step right up.
