The Far Left does not want to have a “conversation about race” about what black males have done to, say, the following three White people in South Carolina in just six months in 2011. Their lives were also either taken or traumatized in horrific tragedies. In spite of what some might say, their stories are just as important to “race in America” as the likes of Michael Brown or Freddie Gray.
Again, the Far Left denies that White people have legitimate grievances about being victimized by black-on-white crime and believes that discussion of this subject should be treated as a taboo. Instead, the Far Left wants the American media to promote its chosen narrative of black victimization, when the facts show the reverse is true. Interracial crime is overwhelmingly black-on-white.
June 2011: 18-year-old Carter Strange is nearly beaten to death by a group of “youths” in Columbia, SC
October 2011: In Charleston, five year old Allison Griffor is shot and killed while sleeping in her bed during a home invasion
Beverly Hope Melton
December 2011: In Kershaw, SC, Beverly Hope Melton is followed and chased by a black male, her vehicle is knocked off the road, and she is abducted, raped, and beaten to death with a baseball bat
CNN devoted months of its programming to showcasing the tragic deaths of thugs and criminals like Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray. Dylann Roof was “radicalized” by the obvious anti-White double standard: why devote such enormous attention to Trayvon, Brown, and Gray, but not to, say, Carter Strange, Allison Griffor, or Beverly Hope Melton? Shouldn’t White Lives Matter, too?
By treating the value of White lives as a radioactive subject, Dylann Roof became incensed and burned with a sense of injustice. Instead of dispensing with its dishonest, one-sided, and immoral narrative of interracial violence, the Far Left wants to chill discussion of legitimate issues. As the besieged police retreat from the streets and fanatics morph into lone wolf spree killers, oddly enough the toll will fall primarily on black lives.
All Lives Matter … and as long as the Left honors the memory of “martyrs” like Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray, there will be those on the Right who will remember Carter Strange, Allison Griffor, and Beverly Hope Melton.
