Why do we never see Black Lives Matter “protest” over the rise of Black-on-Black crime in Democrat-run cities? Why are they supported by the Democratic Party even though they encourage and are involved in riots, not peaceful protests? Why is it OK for BLM rioters to bring bricks, poles and guns to their ‘protests,’ but not OK for the police to respond to shots fired at them? Why is it that BLM and the Democrats never talk about the responsibility of citizens of all races to respond to the requests of police officers with respect?

I believe the answer to all of these questions is this: It’s all magician’s trick, sleight of hand. Make people see only what you want them to see and hide what you don’t want them to see. Hide the thousands of Black-on-Black killings (and violent crimes by Black perpetrators on victims of other races). Hide the light sentences that many violent Black perpetrators get for crime in Democratic cities — while playing up White racism
