On my blog I receive email from time to time both good and bad. When I have chosen to write about situations involving race, it surly touches nerves, which is understood. Although I remain completely statistical and logical sometimes people can’t separate emotion from logic. I’m never bothered by it; you have to expect that with the territory. I actually find these responses humorous, in fact last time I wrote about the Congressional Black Caucus I got a few comments (all negative) interesting but none more then this one:
“A DEVIL IS ANY GRAFTED MAN”-Khalid Muhammad. Our dark ancestors chronicled pale stringy-haired ppl as Tamahu not Humans. Being grafted affects behavior primarily bcuz as you graft a human, it devolves closer to the base animal…White man in particular shares hair types, physical features & scent with members of the lower animal kingdom; Apes, Dogs, Pigs. The devil-man’s behavior is a byproduct of being grafted & lacking MELANIN making them all vicious peckerwoods who should not have existed.”
The division continues as race continues to be a staple in the arsenal of those that wish to keep us separate and divided staying true to the cause: divide and conquer. Whether it is the state, the media or those people that make their very living off of this division of humans; race remains the single most powerful divider because it involves every one of us. Once you have everyone involved, it is then easy to exploit, and nobody is more notorious for this then Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
I can only imagine what will come my way, with this bit of truth that I’m about to rely but what can I say? Facts are facts and I like them. I will continue to call out and point out this collectivism in the form of racism and double speak as long as these two are in the public eye. Now I digress, onwards and upwards…
Another black man killed at the hands of a white man, another charge of a hate crime. That is just one of the charges facing both Jake England, 19, and his roommate, Alvin Watts, 33 who are also being charged with multiple other charges including Murder-1 for the three gunshot victims who died on the 6th of April earlier this month in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Unlike the Martin/Zimmerman situation in Florida, this case has evidence based on police reports of: “admissions by both defendants as to their involvement in the three murder charges and the two SWIK (shooting with intent to kill) charges” that according to First Assistant District Attorney Doug Drummond.

This situation appears to be quite different from the shooting in Sanford, where a lot of grey area surrounds the case. Zimmerman (who is facing only a 2nd degree murder charge) in his role of the Martin shooting claims his innocence; while this case in Tulsa you have an admission of guilt. An admission of guilt… is well, an admission of guilt. For one, there are two survivors in the Tulsa shootings. Secondly, there are two people being accused (roommates too) thus the pool of defense the defense team can draw from will be one that is severely limited. So there is no way that the Tulsa case will play out the same as the case in Sanford, this type of event is what makes people like Sharpton and Jackson get up every morning. The only question here will be life in prison or lethal injection.
Now, with the case of Zimmerman, I opined back in March that the charge of a hate crime or that Martins death was racially motivated was clearly speculative, based only on the fact that Zimmerman was white while Martin was black. That’s hardly enough evidence to say that something was motivated out of hate or prejudice. That however didn’t stop Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson from sticking in their beaks to claim otherwise. Jackson went even as far to say that: ““Blacks are under attack.”
I found that funny then and I find it funny now. The reality is that blacks attack more whites than blacks do and do so at an alarming rate. According to a study done by the New Century Foundation in 2005 (a non profit organization founded in 1994 to study immigration and race relations) crimes that involve blacks and whites, blacks commit 85% of the 770,000 violent interracial crimes to the white populations 15%. Its worth noting that, American White population in the US is 4x that of Black Americans.
Blacks target whites more so than any other race while committing violent crimes. In fact 45% of their victims are white to 43% being black. White people on the other hand commit only 3% of their violent crimes are against blacks. Now let’s think about these last two figures and maybe Jackson and Sharpton can give an explanation; because I don’t ever see or hear of an explanation when it comes to black on black crime. If they do speak out in these cases it’s always a community problem or it’s the nation, the illegal guns, the drugs or its our history that has failed them; I never hear ownership.
- Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
- Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.
This study was done in 2005; I will gladly give the benefit of the doubt and stand corrected if blacks are indeed “under attack” as Jackson says they are. All I need to do is see the evidence. Show me the numbers and show me the crimes. If we are going to just cherry pick random acts of violence and call them hate crimes or grasp on to the very few of white hate crimes committed against blacks that are an anomaly without any statistical evidence to state otherwise… then these numbers I present speak for themselves. That however won’t happen, because race and division is big business. Facts and truth mean nothing to these men. Ask Sharpton, he wouldn’t go to Tulsa because he was too busy “fundraising” in DC.
“I was scheduled to be in Tulsa this weekend but now feel that I can be more useful to the families of the victims to remain at my national convention and raise money for them,” Sharpton said.
Remember who Jackson said was attacking Black America? It was “Big business” and I will say what I said a month ago regarding this: exploitation is big business.
