I am sorry, I just don’t get it.

Do Black Lives really Matter to #BlackLivesMatter? 102 people were shot and 14 killed in Chicago alone over Father's Day weekend, including five minors. I have not heard a peep on the evening news or from #BlackLivesMatter. There is no talk about the 13 year old girl that died after being struck by a stray bullet or the two teenage boys that were shot sitting on the porch outside the building where they live.

There is no discussion of the most violent day in Chicago in the last 60 years where 18 murders occurred in 24 hours. Most of these homicide victims in Chicago are young, black men as were the suspected assailants.

This is happening in many major cities around the country. What is a common denominator behind problems facing many urban areas? They have been run by Democrats for decades. Cities like Memphis, New Orleans, Atlanta, Washington DC and Milwaukee have had Democrat mayors for more than 100 years.

In that time, Liberal policies aimed at helping America’s poor actually destroyed black families where now more than 72% of babies are born out of wedlock. Nearly half as many black babies are aborted as are born. Liberals’ are actually profiting politically off of black people’s misery.

The public education system run by Liberals for decades is failing our children. A recent Forbes article reported on national tests last year, while only 42% of white 8th grades were proficient or above in reading and that number drops to 15% for black kids. This should outrage our Liberal friends but they fight against school choice that allows parents to give their children a better education opportunity. Please do not say more money is the answer as America already spends more per pupil than any other major developed nation.

I ask why don’t #BlackLivesMatter rail against the ineptitude of Liberal mayors, policies and educators. I just don’t get it.

Great questions here, but I get scolded when I make my points. I have lots of thoughts on this, but will only share a few important ones. First, All lives matter, and all people should do their best to be respectful and respectable. Second, I had a hard childhood, and I got over it. That made it easier for me to work very hard, not waste my money, not develop bad habits, not learn to depend on the government. I had people I could have blamed, but I needed to survive and so I did. So sad that all people can't move on, and this mess we see in America at this time, is setting us back many years in race relations. Many people are getting bitter at this new round of discontent. Martin Luther King hoped someday people could be judged by the content of their character, and not the color of their skin.
This is a simple solution. But what we don't have in all of our wonderful American documents is, that while it would be nice, the government can not make someone like someone that they don't like, and that is the issue that causes this problem. We can continue this civil war, but when we are done, the government still can't make someone like someone or some race they don't like. The problem will only get worse now, because as hard as most of us are trying to be fair, this entire public scene that we are witnessing, is making lots of people bitter. That is why this Cause needs to be All Lives Matter, not just some lives matter.
