Attorney General Barr Destroys Premise Of Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter is based on a simple premise: Racist white police officers are killing black people because they are black. But actual numbers show that a majority of those killed by police are white and that only 32% are black.

So, if racist white police officers are hunting down innocent blacks, then why are they killing more whites than blacks? Why, by two to one, are you safer with a police officer if you’re black than if you’re another race?

The answer is obvious: Black Lives Matter, like so many Democrat disinformation operations, is a hoax. Like Russian collusion and the Ukrainian phone call before it, Black Lives Matter is based on a lie that is willingly spread by the media. But U.S. Attorney General William Barr is having nothing of it.

Barr Demolishes Black Lives Matter

“I think the narrative that the police are on some epidemic of shooting unarmed black men is simply a false narrative,” Barr said Wednesday on CNN. “The fact is that it’s very rare for an unarmed African American to be shot by a white police officer.”

The vast majority (68 percent) of those shot by police officers are not black. So those alleged killer racist officers must be color blind. The majority shot by police are white —52 percent— while 32 percent are black. African American males make up six percent of the population but commit over many times that percentage of crimes, according to findings from the National Institutes of Health and the FBI.

Thus their chances of being involved in police situations are much higher to begin with. All the evidence points to one inescapable conclusion: police officers shoot more white people than black people by 20 percent. So, going by facts and the premise of the movement, it should be called “Male Lives Matter,” “White Lives Matter,” or more than not, “Criminal Lives Matter.”

Barr Doubles Down

Barr continues: “At the same time, I think it would be an oversimplification to treat the problem as rooted in some deep-seated racism generally infecting our police departments. It seems far more likely that the problem stems from a complex mix of factors, which can be addressed with focused attention over time.”

Barr is not a politician but the nation’s top law enforcement officer, so he can’t and shouldn’t go into the factual consequences of his data-driven assertion. But he is also a very intelligent man and is not oblivious to the obvious conclusions.

The amazing part of this is the complete intellectual disregard Democrats have for America and especially for black Americans. They believe that by lying about this issue, in contravention of easily discoverable facts, that black Americans will rise up in indignation and blame the president. But something else happened.

Since the riots and the media ascendancy of Black Lives Matter, the president’s poll numbers have skyrocketed with black American voters. Trump received about 6-8 percent of their votes in 2016. Now, his standing is around 25 percent and growing. He’s quadrupled his support. So even in today’s America there are times when a Democrat lie won’t work.
