|Kester Browne III, 7 years old, became 38th murder victim in Baltimore in May after |
being shot in the head. His mother Jennifer was the 37th murder victim.
But where is the national outrage at this killing? Where is Al Sharpton, President Obama or Eric Holder? Where is the media circus that did so much to fan the flames in Ferguson, Missiouri?
Where is the national outrage as Baltimore has seen the worst spike in murders in nearly 20 years following the riots where the police were told to stand down and blamed for the death of Freddie Gray, a drug dealer with a long rap sheet.
Over the Memorial Day weekend, a total of nine people were murdered, 26 injured. Nearly all of them were black and NONE of them were killed by police.
The same murder spree which is sweeping Baltimore continues in Chicago where 12 were killed and 43 wounded. Again, NONE of them killed by police.
And in New York City, since left wing Mayor DeBlasio ended the "stop and frisk" program for suspicious persons, the murder rate has skyrocketed by 45%.
Where are the protesters who chanted "black lives matter" as the epidemic of murder of blacks in the inner city reaches epidemic proportions? In the past year thousands of blacks were murdered by other blacks. Almost as many that died from ebola. When will the protesters begin to address the REAL problem in black communities?
I'm not holding my breathe. As columnist Rich Lowry writes:
Let’s be honest: Some black lives really don’t matter. If you are a young black man shot in the head by another young black man, almost certainly no one will know your name. Al Sharpton won’t come rushing to your family’s side with cameras in tow. MSNBC won’t discuss the significance of your death. No one will protest, or even riot, for you. You are a statistic, not a cause. Just another dead black kid in some city somewhere, politically useless to progressives and the media, therefore all but invisible.In Ferguson, they are building a memorial to Mike Brown. There will be no memorial for 7 year old Kester Browne. Unlike Mike Brown, young Kester never harmed anyone or did anything to deserve his fate. His life mattered. But not to the left!
UPDATE: ACORN/George Soros Paid Protesters for Black Lives Matter! But then they stiffed a number of other rent-a-mob protesters who are now protesting them! I guess black lives matter only if the protesters are getting paid!
