Black Lives Matter and Racial Profiling
All lives matter. Sadly, this movement has risen out of several high profile tragedies of Blacks being killed by police. But this is not where the story should stay or end. There are many things that we can and should do in the Black community to clearly demonstrate, first and primarily to ourselves, that Black lives do indeed matter. Before we petition others concerning our welfare, should we not show that our “charity” has already begun at home? But what does “home” look like in the Black community and could it possibly contribute to the events being lived out at the street level? Could it possibly be a major factor in profiling incidents?
· 70% of Black children grow up in a single parent home
· 1 in 4 Black men have been in prison
· 70% of those men came from a single parent home where no dad was present
· The Black homicide rate is 8-10x higher than White and Latino communities combined
· Blacks are 13% of the US population, yet we account for 52% of the homicide victims and 47% of the perpetrators
· Blacks comprise 13% of the population yet we account for 36% of the abortions in the US
The No. 1 cause of death in the Black community is abortion. In the last 40 years, 1/4 of all the Blacks who could be here have been aborted away.
