Righteous protest? More like petulance.
I saw an article from the Boston Globe today about “Protesters” who had shut down traffic in Boston during the morning rush hour. Apparently these “Protesters” had chained their arms together inside of 55-gallon barrels filled with concrete that weighed about 1,200 pounds each. As an American Black Man, it’s difficult for me to articulate the level of disdain that I have for these Leftist/Regressive/Socialist minded White Democrats, their antics, and their contrived “moral outrage” over the deaths of people of color. But let me attempt to explain why I feel that way.
I would ask these folks if they knew (or cared) that over 86 years (from 1882 to 1968), the Ku Klux Klan lynched 3,446 Blacks. I would then ask them if they knew (or cared) that during an average year, Black folks will kill about 3,446 other Black folks by the end of the summer. Finally, I would ask them if they knew (or cared) that on average, 3,446 Black babies are murdered in the womb by the Institution called Abortion…EVERY FOUR DAYS!!
You see, I can all but guarantee you that if you ask each of these Museum Grade Morons about their stance on the Institution called Abortion, they wouldn’t hesitate to tell you that they agree with it wholeheartedly. Keep in mind that the majority of Abortion Clinics were purposely situated in and/or near (walking distance) predominately minority neighborhoods, and that they are manned and operated largely by Leftist/Regressive/Socialist minded White Democrats. And then keep in mind that nearly 30% of the Babies that they murder are Black Babies…even though Blacks make up only about 12-13% of the total population of this country.
As quoted in the Abort73.com website, “Whatever the intent of the abortion industry may be, by functional standards, abortion is a racist institution. In the United States, Black children are aborted at nearly four times the rate as White children and Hispanic children don’t fare much better.” and “Non-Hispanic Whites make up 63.7% of America’s population, but account for only 36% of all U.S. abortions.”
So at the end of the day, I despise these people, because despite their hyper-emotional antics, not only do they not know, but they really don’t care to know exactly what the biggest threat to “life” is in the Black community. This sort of “protest” is something that they do to make themselves feel morally superior, and to give themselves “warm fuzzies”. But if they really want to show that they care about the lives of Black people, the number one thing they can do is to “protest” abortion, and then vote to repeal Roe vs. Wade. Until I see that happen, their “caring” is contrived, and their “protests” are really just petulance.
