Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,391 adults nationwide on 10/7-9 and found approval of professional athlete protests against the National anthem as follows:
1.Blacks approve of protests: 74% to 17 %.
2.Hispanics disapprove of protests: 45% to 36 %.
3.All Americans disapprove of protests: 63% to 30%
“The Quinnipiac University poll showed that the younger the person, the more likely he or she is to approve of athletes not standing or taking a knee.”
Sadly, this is more evidence for my contention that young Blacks are being taught by professional athletes, the liberal media, and liberalism…to hate America! What we are seeing is a device of Satan(2Cor2:11) to internally destroy America!
When Black Lives Matter began propagating ‘police target Blacks’, as evidence they used ‘emotional’ images of Black men shot by police. The complicit liberal media pushed BLM’s “America is racist” idea into every American home by repeatedly showing every time police shot a Black man. Of course, they conveniently suppressed (Rom1:18) all contrary evidence to ensure Black anger reached an apex. For example, just one month ago, on the same day (9/20/16) Black man Keith Lamont Scott was killed by police, which by the way ignited several days of rioting in Charlotte, North Carolina, ‘five’ White men were also shot and killed by police--yet no liberal national news agency made even one shooting an issue!
Why? Because it did not fit the “America is racist” agenda; and Blacks do not riot when police shoot White people!
Now, with professional athletes picking-up on the BLM lie through attacking the National anthem, the ‘America is racist’ myth is reaching new heights! As the Quinnipiac poll so sadly suggests, many Blacks are swallowing the bait that: America was created by racists; America is still racist; and America will always be racist! The device of Satan is to internally destroy America’s credibility through the racism charge, and begin a new America founded upon liberal/progressive ideas! Just so you’re aware of the full consequences, if liberal/progressives achieve their objective, which I repeat, is the scheme of Satan, America will have to reject the Constitution and Declaration of Independence which are based upon Biblical principles! What will replace them? Liberal/progressive ideas, i.e. atheism! This means Communism, Socialism, and Darwinism—for starters!
As I began researching the facts on the “police target Blacks” mantra, I uncovered many evidences proving it a myth. For example, first I uncovered the fact that more Whites than Blacks (495 to 258) are shot by police, a fact which alone should have* immediately killed the myth that ‘police target Blacks’.
Second, after confronted with liberal retort, “what about the fact that a greater proportion of Blacks are killed by police than Whites; doesn’t that prove police target Blacks?” NO! Why? I discovered the fact that the greater proportion of Black deaths is expected because Blacks commit a greater number of violent crimes, which puts Blacks in more high risk situations. For example, Blacks commit almost 50% of all homicides in America.
Third, I knew one of the ways the liberal media lies to deceive the masses is to promote, not only that police target Blacks, but that police always target Blacks; or police only target Blacks. To best address the third problem, I concluded I needed to contrast the total numbers of police shootings with the general population. The New York Times and Roland Martin inadvertently offered me an opportunity.
Black, Harvard-educated professor Roland Martin conducted a police force study on 10 American cities. Regarding his own study, Mr Fryer concluded, “It is the most surprising result of my career!” Why did he find his own results surprising? Because he is a liberal, and prior to his study, which means prior to him knowing the facts, he concluded ‘police target Blacks’ is true!!! Hummmm…I wonder why a ‘liberal’ scholar would violate the most basic tenet of his profession?
Furthermore, regarding Mr Fryer’s study, the liberal New York Times concluded:
-“Mr. Fryer found that in such situations, officers in Houston were
about 20 percent less likely to shoot if the suspects were black.”
-“Mr. Fryer found that blacks were either less likely to be shot or
there was no difference between blacks and whites.”
-“In shootings in these 10 cities involving officers, officers were more
likely to fire their weapons without having first been attacked
when the suspects were white. Black and white civilians involved
in police shootings were equally likely to have been carrying a
weapon. Both results undercut the idea of racial bias in police use
of lethal force.”
However, one of the more compelling statements in the NYT piece was:
-“There were 1.6 million arrests in Houston in the years(2000-2015)
Mr. Fryer studied. Officers fired their weapons 507 times.”
Presto!!...here was my answer! This statement proved my third point. If you divide 507 into 1.6 million, you get .000316875. This means, in the city of Houston, which I assume is not unlike every other American inner city:
-3.1 times out of every 10,000 arrests, police fire their weapons; or
-31.6 times out of every 100,000 arrests, police shoot people; or
-316.8 times out every 1 million arrests, police discharge their guns
For the city of Houston, the 507 number is not the number killed, but the number of times police discharged their weapon--during arrests! Contrast the 507 number with the 2015 total number of people killed by police—in the whole of America: 991. Or, the 2015 total number of Blacks shot by police in America: 258.
Now…remember, the number ONE liberal evidence used to prove ‘America is racist’ is: Police target Blacks. This means…BLM, Collin Kaepernick, and his followers, as well as liberalism, all base their assertion that “America is racist” ---at least, as evidenced by Houston**---on the miniscule number: .00316875!***
In summation, this means Black youth are learning that ‘America is racist’ based on the fact that 99.968% of the times police arrest Americans they do not fire their weapons! Remember, I wrote the word “arrest”—not contact!!****
To put it mildly, the liberal mantra: ‘America is racist because police target Blacks’ is preposterous! May God have mercy!!!
Beware: Liberalism/progressivism does not originate in the God of the Bible!
*However, the emotion of the repeated video footage of the deaths of Black men was too powerful!
**For those who would argue the numbers must be different in other American cities, prove another point, you have concluded ‘America is racist’ before ever knowing the facts!
***Adding fire to the inferno are two other irrefutable facts:
1.The numbers 507 and 1.6 million, are not annual, but over a 16-year period!!!
2.The 1.6 million are arrests, not contacts. The numbers of police contacts without arrests would include things like traffic tickets etc., which means the 1.6 million arrest number would have to exponentially increase in order to meet the police contact number!
****The exponentially increased contact number would drive the 99.968% even higher!!
