And, of course, we are told that if only everybody was armed mass shootings would be a thing of the past, but Sterling deserved to die because he was armed in an open carry state.
Meanwhile, another black guy gets shot four times for reaching for his wallet at a traffic stop. This guy, however, reached for his gun and is still alive:
That’s because white guys in open carry states are Patriots, but black guys in open carry states are thugs. Tamir Rice found that out within two seconds of the arrival of a trigger happy cop and he was just a 12 year old boy with an Airsoft gun who hadn’t pointed it at anybody. His killer walked.
According to Shaun King, unarmed black males are 700% more likely to be killed by police than unarmed white males.
While people of color make up about 30 percent of the United States’ population, they account for 60 percent of those imprisoned. The prison population grew by 700 percent from 1970 to 2005, a rate that is outpacing crime and population rates. The incarceration rates disproportionately impact men of color: 1 in every 15 African American men and 1 in every 36 Hispanic men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in every 106 white men.
We now have a prison population larger than Stalin’s Gulag Archipelago. Guess the color of the population.
And the party of Donald Trump, Habitual White Supremacist Retweeter, still insists that racism is not an issue.
Scott Eric Alt, another exile from the Trump Madhouse, remarked to me, “For years, I told liberals who accused the right of racism, ‘That’s not what we’re about.’ Now I find I’m spending my time telling conservatives, ‘That’s not what we’re about!'” Eventually, it became clear to him, as to me, that is what they’re about. Hence Trump’s popularity. Like me, Alt has turned his back on such filth. We prefer the Catholic faith, where in Christ Jesus there is no Jew nor Greek, black nor white, male nor female, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free.
