“It’s a total utter lie that police shootings are a major cause of black deaths.” — Ben Stein

The police are the heroes

Ben Stein writing at the American Spectator gives us some perspective and numbers on the police and the state of black culture in America.

“It’s a total utter lie that police shootings are a major cause of black deaths.”

Most are suicides, sadly.

“The huge majority of the rest are black-on-black gang and drug related shootings.”

That’s the major, underlying issue here: the lack of courage within the black community to confront what really plagues their neighborhoods. It’s the crime, the violence, the drugs.

“The Obama clique makes no effort at all to rein in these gangs. The gangs kill and no one proposes any laws about it at all.”

President Obama has been much a president. Sure, he’s won two elections. He’s held the office. But he has been everything but presidential. He has shown virtually no leadership on these and other critical issues.

“There is a giant super crisis among blacks: Violence. Drugs. The collapse of the family. Pitiful education. Low participation in the labor force. None of this is caused by the police.”

Federal, state and local leaders must begin to address the collapse of the black family and their communities.
