Are police racist and out to get black people? If you ask BML and Antifa, the answer is yes. But you might find it shocking to learn that the people burning cities to the ground and looting businesses don’t speak for black Americans as a whole. In fact, if you ask the majority of African-Americans, the police are doing a great job.
A CBS/YouGov poll reveals that 70 percent of blacks think police are at least doing a somewhat decent job. In fact, the number of blacks who say this isn’t that far behind the number of whites. Though blacks are less likely to say their local police are doing “very good” than whites, 70 percent say that they’re doing at least “somewhat good.” Compared to whites, this isn’t a huge difference. 82 percent of whites say police are doing at least “somewhat good.” The numbers for black Americans are not that far below the average, as well — when all Americans are taken into consideration, 79 percent say cops are doing at least a “somewhat good” job.
When liberals tell you that blacks feel oppressed by our police, it’s important to remember that they don’t mean all blacks or even a majority. They mean a very vocal minority that is speaking out, acting as outrage merchants over issues that lie not with racism, but with training.
When you see BLM tearing cities apart, remember that all of it is theatre — violent, destructive theatre intended to convince Americans that rioting is ok, and to sell the lie that America is a racist nation. All of this is so that Joe Biden can push his radical socialist agenda without being questioned. Don’t fall for the lies. The numbers tell the truth.
