What both fascinates and angers me is the number of media, in some cases even right wing media, which, subsequent to the Houston police shooting, have editorially altered to "all lives matter", explicitly acknowledging the legitimacy of Black Lives Matter (apparently still dismissing the lives of Hispanics, Native Americans, and other minorities "of color", I guess). This, when prior to the shooting of white Houston police officers, a critical microscope was invariably trained on African Americans in order to at best leave their claims of discrimination in doubt. Only now is the media, and not even all, calling for "coming together", presumably because they have become fearful of a war-like environment arising in the U.S. as minorities retaliate against the police.
Exhibit number one is William Jefferson Clinton. His racism was exhibited when he informed Black Lives Matter (BLM) demonstrators how the mass incarceration of African American males--which he instituted at the Federal level--is good for African Americans because, effectively if you read Clinton's comments, African American males are disproportionately disposed to organized crime. Implicitly, Clinton was informing BLM demonstrators they were at least culturally, and perhaps genetically, inferior to Caucasians and, like developmentally inferior children, needed being treated sternly by their betters for their own good. When a former DEMOCRATIC PARTY U.S. President exhibits such a racist attitude, what can be expected of much of the rest of American Caucasians, especially the police?
