Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Censorship is telling a man he can’t have a steak just because a baby can’t chew it.” —Mark Twain (1835-1910)

For the record: “In 2015, of the 990 people shot dead by police, 93 were unarmed and 38 of them were black. Of the 505 people shot dead by police thus far in 2016, 37 were unarmed and of them 13 were black. Given that blacks murder and rob more than whites — they committed 62 percent of robberies, 57 percent of murders and 45 percent of assaults in the 75 biggest counties in the country in 2009 (despite comprising about 15 percent of the population in these counties) — an unarmed black is less likely to be killed by police than an unarmed white.” —Dennis Prager

Upright: “The president has consistently chosen to see things through the eyes of an aggrieved black activist rather than of a president of all the people. He’s not failed to speak out whenever a black is killed by a white police officer, but has said next to nothing about the continued slaughters of blacks by other blacks in the streets of Chicago, Baltimore, and other cities.” —Brit Hume

Demo-gogues: “I talked to him about how to conduct himself if he were stopped for a traffic violation, if he is questioned by a police officer. … I should not have to say to my grandson, ‘You’ve got to deny your manhood if you want to ensure that you come home alive.’ Black lives do matter.” —Rep. James Clyburn

Belly laugh of the week: “[Y]ou can go back and look at how I’ve worked with Republicans, and I think I have a very strong base of relationships with them and evidence of that. But, you know, they say terrible things about me, much worse than anything I’ve ever said about them. That just seems to be part of the political back and forth now, to appeal to your base, to appeal to the ideologues who support you.” —Hillary Clinton

And last… “Become a part of the solution. Serve your communities. Don’t be a part of the problem. We’re hiring. Get off that protest line and put an application in, and we’ll put you in your neighborhood and we will help you resolve some of the problems you’re protesting about.” —Dallas Police Chief David Brown
