So I'll go through her latest questions w/ answers. Ones that she's probably not going to like (or accept since I'm a RWG)
But where is the black leadership in this town? Where are the moral voices? Where is their outrage? Where are their demands that the slaughter cease?They're sitting in their comfortable houses, often w/ private/armed security, and reading the same articles you are. You've already answered why: 'Black Lives' don’t matter to them.
But w/ a qualifier which we'll get to next.
They know how to command the microphones, dominate the headlines, get up in our faces. Where are they?See above. Now for the qualifier. The reason they 'know how to command the microphones and dominate the headlines' is THAT is what they care about. Keeping the attention, the cameras, and the microphones on themselves. They care about keeping themselves and THEIR lives comfortable, safe, and well funded. You won't see those 'leaders' marching in the streets of Chicago unless there are hundreds of cameras on them, otherwise it's just not worth their well-paid time. As for the political 'leaders', they're to busy getting lucrative jobs for their friends and raising taxes.
As for the 'script':
Why aren’t these war zones being flooded with cops?Ferguson and Baltimore. Thank BLM for that. Go watch videos of crime scenes in Chicago being mobbed by gang-banging thugs and locals trashing evidence, attacking the police, firefighters, and EMT's trying to do their jobs. Then ask this question again. And the second the 'bangers and drug dealers start getting hauled in? RACISM!!!!! THEN you'll see some of those 'leaders' show up, to disappear again as soon as the cameras are gone. You'll also see the neighborhoods erupt in violence as they burn down their own city.
Why not put millions in tax dollars into crime fighting and gun control?They have. Most of it was completely useless and did nothing to 'fight crime'. Instead all it did was try and restrict most of those RWG's/local citizens trying to defend their homes and end up in the pockets of those 'leaders' that are absent.
Here's the results of what you want:
If you favor strict gun control laws, laws that will punish people severely simply for possessing a gun or ammunition, then you will wind up throwing a lot more people in jail. And many of those people will be minorities.
When will black Chicago stop accepting its own self destruction?When the people stop voting for and enabling the ones allowing it along w/ the race politics and unsustainable handouts. When people like you stop pointing the fingers at everyone else but the people involved. When the families of the thugs, gang-bangers, and drug dealers start turning their baby boys in instead of screaming how they were 'good boys turning their lives around'. Look at the 9 yr old's family. His 'dad' is not helping the police and is selling T-shirts. 'Mom' used the money she begged for his funeral to buy a new car.
When will we admit that black lives don’t matter to us?Because then too many won't be able to play the victim and race cards. They'll have to accept some level of accountability and responsibility. Not going to happen.
When are we going to stop waiting for white people to beg us to change?Anyone that does will be accused of racism so why should they bother?
But I'm just a 'Rural White Guy', what do I know.
