I've always thought that this effort to avoid racial profiling was an idiotic effort with deadly consequences. After 9-11 when we knew that our terrorist attackers were all middle-eastern Muslims, in the name of political correctness, we decided to not racially profile anyone at our airports. Instead, the TSA was told to select "at random" every 10th person in line. Who came up with this idiotic idea? What if the terrorist is the 8th person standing in line? Or the 5th person? Invariably, the person chosen by our brilliant TSA officers is a nun, or an elderly person, or a 6-yr old handicapped child.
If it is true that African-American males are viewed suspiciously, it is probably because statistically, they commit a disproportionate amount of crime. If that were not true, they would probably be given no more attention as supposed suspects that is accorded to white, asian or Latino youths.
Blacks are being told by this president and his attorney general, along with the help of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson that their biggest threat is racial profiling by the police. These so-called back leaders who point the finger at external causes are helping to destroy black
Following an incident in
Cincinnati in 2001, civil rights leaders
organized a boycott of the city and charged the police with abuse of black
youth. As a consequence, the police reduced their patrols in black
neighborhoods, and arrests declined dramatically, because cops did not want to
be accused of racism. During this period of the boycott, a total of 74
shootings occurred in black neighborhoods, leaving 80 people wounded or
dead--an 800 percent increase over the previous year's figures of 9 shootings
and 11 victims.
12 yrs. Ago, gang activity and violence sharply increased after the dismantling
of the police gang unit that was accused of racism. In a similar situation in
Prince George's County, MD., 61 people were killed in the first seven months of
that year, compared with only 71 the entire previous year. Carjackings doubled,
and robberies rose 37 percent. The county police reportedly were participating
in an informant slowdown, after being accused of racism. Their reported
philosophy: "No contact, no complaints."
"If black America continues down this lethal path of self-deception, the protest leaders will not bear the cost arising from the fabricated complaint of racial profiling--no it will be the sons and daughters who live in thesehigh crime areas which are most in need of protection but will receive none because the police of afraid of being deemed "racists."
All this talk about racial profiling is a diversionary tactic to avoid the real issue of the lack of morality in the black community. 90 percent of black murder victims are killed by other blacks, not white. Today's civil rights' leaders are swatting at gnats and ignoring the elephant in the room. 73 percent of all black children are born without fathers married to their mothers. Today's black leadership is living off of the fumes of racism. It's a cottage industry. They are the race-hustlers who want their people to think that their biggest problem is the white man when in reality, it's other blacks along with a lack of morality. It's time for the black community to look in the mirror and clean up their own backyard.
