Racist Shootings, or Elitist Exploitation?

Thanks to Barack Obama’s selective capitalization on specific tragedies, a biased media, a gullible public, and #blacklivesmatter protests, American outrage at the recent ‘obviously racist shootings’ of blacks is sparking powder kegs of violence – and America is now consequently hurtling pell-mell toward what could be an inevitable state of martial law.

Some documented facts are as follows:

“The offending rate for blacks (34.4 per 100,000) was almost 8 times higher than the rate for whites (4.5 per 100,000).”


Given that disproportionately more blacks commit violent crimes than whites, it would make sense that the percentage of police encounters would also be disproportionately black.  John Hinderaker opines that in light of these statistics, the number of blacks shot by police is actually surprisingly low:

“…the percentage of blacks fatally shot by police officers (26%) is almost exactly equal to the percentage of blacks committing violent crimes (24%). Indeed, given that the black homicide rate is around eight times the white rate, it is surprising that the portion of blacks fatally shot by policemen is not higher.”

Why are so many making this into a race issue?

Given the above data, it doesn’t seem very likely that black Americans are being disproportionately targeted by police.  Unjust or unnecessary shootings by police are, of course, tragic, but why are so many making this into a racial/racist issue?  After the shooting of Philando Castile, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton shamelessly made the unfounded assumption that it was racially motivated, probably successfully furthering racial division and hatred:

“Would this have happened if the driver were white, if the passengers were white? I don’t think it would have.”

What if we are all being played?  What if we’re dancing to the tune of a some Globalist piper’s higher agenda – one that would lead us directly to a presidential excuse to enact martial law – thereby suspending elections, Habeas Corpus, the Fourth Amendment, Second Amendment, and even the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment?  What if the purpose of blatantly, selectively exploiting these tragedies is to divide and terrorize us, clearing the way for more unopposed losses of liberties?

Don’t be a pawn.
