Far too many of those who, strangely enough, are viewed as being ‘leaders’ of the black community, as well as most Democrat politicians, expend what is an inordinate amount of time and effort in trying to make their point that there can be only one possible explanation for the fact that more young blacks find themselves incarcerated or more often, than whites, find themselves being questioned by a police officer for what are claimed to be minor offenses. That explanation is, of course, racism. But to do so is to take the denying of reality to astronomical heights. While I will admit that there are instances where racism can said to be factor, if we are being honest, we would have to admit that those instances are remarkably few.
Rep. Bobby Rush, a Democrat, is one of those black ‘leaders’ who sees all police officers as racists. Not only that, but now he wants the House to create a select committee to investigate “the unjustified use of lethal and excessive force by police officers against African-Americans.” And it was earlier this month that Rep. Rush introduced a resolution that would create a select panel similar to the one reviewing the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi in 2012. His resolution states, “This past year alone we have seen 7 different incidents of the unjustified use of lethal and excessive force by police officers against African- Americans.” What makes this guy able to determine the level of force justified in a given situation?
This resolution goes on to say, “It is the will of the Congress that a select committee be formed to investigate these patterns of excessive use of force in communities of color.” And then it continues, “There is hereby established in the House of Representatives the Select Committee on Excessive Use of Police Force.” And I’m pretty sure that it’ll come as a surprise to no one to hear that 9 other representatives from that rather odd assortment of misfits, the Congressional Black Caucus, have now signed on as co-sponsors of Rush’s idiotic little measure. And yet, it’s this very same group that has cheerfully sold millions of their fellow blacks into eternal bondage to the Democrat Party and in exchange for what, a little political clout?
Rush and those who have now signed onto his silly resolution, seek only to exploit their own people. Because the truth is blacks tend to bring more attention to themselves through their own bad behavior. And this trend is far from anything new. For instance, it was back in the late 1950's in Detroit that someone decided to dare the local newspaper to list the daily crimes committed by race as a way to prove that whites in Detroit were committing just as many crimes as were blacks. The newspaper was only too happy to accept the dare. On the front page it showed the number of arrest for blacks and then whites. After three days the paper ceased doing this because it was becoming embarrassing for blacks. It was like 100 to 3 each day.
And it’s these hypocrites like Rush who do a great disservice to members of the black community when they chose to ignore the obvious and they are more than a bit disingenuous when they claim to wonder why it is that blacks get arrested more often than do whites and continue to have issues with the police. The real reason is that blacks are very often the ones committing the majority of the crimes. When you get right down to it the black community has been on a steady decline for the last 50 years, to the point where today it is in such a shambles that many young blacks feel they have no alternative but to turn to crime. And yet men like Rush continue to insist that all of the blame rests with the police and none rests with young blacks.
