Black lives, that is. Bookworm presents her assertion:
Black lives don’t matter. How do I know this? Because if black lives really mattered, blacks would stop killing each other. Blacks would stop committing genocide against themselves by aborting more children than they allow to be born. Blacks would stop consigning generations to poverty by having the majority of their children out-of-wedlock. And blacks would stop treating education as punishment and instead treat it as an opportunity.
That’s the thing you can’t help but notice about this black anger spasm is that it is almost exclusively among middle-class blacks. In fact, it is among the blacks who are the greatest beneficiaries of the Civil Rights movement. The angry black guy today is most likely to be a mulatto at an Ivy League college, or in a government position, by the magic of affirmative action. Barak Obama, instead of being thankful for having not been born in Africa, walks around with a chip on his shoulder about race. He and the Mulatto Mafia that surrounds him are largely responsible for BLM.
He has more. Much more.
So…. it seems to me then that middle-class blacks are using their less well-off brethren for their own devices, Sacrificing them, if you will – indeed, a blood sacrifice – so that they themselves can perform the exciting and morally gratifying job of travelling around the country pretending to do something Important for Black Life in America. Important stuff, like yelling at white liberals, for example. In fact, given the hurdles, the chains holding back Black America, this job is essentially just like re-freeing the slaves. No, really.
Even better, it’s a task for which BLM, by virtue of their skin color are uniquely qualified – which is, coincidentally, also a guarantee any other races will have secondary roles and thus not be able to compete. Man, it’s a great gig… well, in fact, it’s become such a good gig that some whites simply cannot stay away.
But then, on the Left, this is all standard operating procedure. Upper-class leftist whites have created the culture, the zoo, if you will, in which clearly less capable groups of people (ie, non-white, non-Christian, non-straight) can live and be “helped” as entertainment for upper-class whites. And so it is that middle-class blacks create a culture, a zoo, for their own less capable groups to be helped as entertainment.
