Removing Statues

by Mychal Massie

In this YouTube Video for my blog, “The Daily Rant”  I raised the question: “When has a statue of General Robert E. Lee [ever] killed a black person?” I explained in blunt detail that anarchists and liberal-progressives are using black people and they are too blinded by ignorance to realize it.

The facts are that blacks have neither the interest nor apparently the understanding regarding how to address the elephant in the center of their demographic. Blacks are filled with raw hatred for a piece of concrete memorializing a historic event or figure, but they ignore the following:

  • Over an 86-year period spanning from 1882 to 1968 there were 3,446 blacks lynched in the America.
  • Today approximately 1,876 black babies are murdered by abortion every day. That means that the total number of blacks lynched covering an 86-year period is surpassed approximately every 45 hours.
  • Between 7,000 and 8,000 blacks are murdered annually.
  • Between 1976 and 2011, 279,384 blacks were killed, with 262,621 of them being killed by another black person. That means 94 percent of all blacks murdered were murdered by another black person.
  • Blacks make up 13 percent of the population and yet they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims.
  • Nationally the black homicide victimization rate is 6 times that of whites and in some cities it is 22 times higher than that of whites.
  • As Dr. Walter E. Williams has noted: The aggregate number of black soldiers killed in military combat in the Korean War, The Vietnam War, and every war since 1980 totals 18,515. That means black males are safer on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan than they are on the streets of Philadelphia PA, Camden N.J., Oakland CA, New York NY, Chicago IL, or any other streets one wants to include.
  • 17.3 million black children have been murdered by their mothers before they were born by the barbaric practice of abortion, since the allowance and encouragement of child killing was legalized.
  • Abortion is responsible for reducing the aggregate black population in America by 30 percent in just 44 years.
  • 36.3 percent of all abortions are black women murdering their children.
  • It is a stunning reality that at the time the Civil Rights Act was signed, 87 percent of black homes were married two-parent households. Forty percent of blacks were business owners. Today, blacks lead the known world in every quantifiable negative statistic regarding family and personal responsibility.

Destroying every Civil War statue, plaque, and Confederate Flag in America will have no impact upon the above facts. With these damning statistics one would think blacks have more to be concerned about than a statue of General Robert E. Lee.
