In Brief: BLM Killed 2,000 Black People

Thanks to Black Lives Matter, the number of black murder victims rose 62% in one year.

The FBI recently released crime statistics for 2020, and the overall murder rate increased a record 29%. Keep in mind that was during a year that featured months-long lockdowns and social distancing. But also keep in mind it was the year of Black Lives Matter riots and violence.

Journalist Daniel Greenfield explains:

The worst one-year percentage jump in murders was a 12.7% increase in 1968 during a crime wave that led Democrats and Republicans to embrace tough on crime policies. 1968 was the year that LBJ signed the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act into law. But the opposite happened in 2020 as Democrats and some libertarian Republicans colluded to dismantle the criminal justice system, open up the jails, and endorse Black Lives Matter.

The pro-crimers have the blood of thousands on their hands.

The FBI’s numbers are in and they show that Black Lives Matter and its corporate backers killed more black people in one year than anything short of an African civil war.

3,595 black people were murdered in 2019. But in 2020, 5,839 black people were murdered.

That’s an additional 2,244 black people killed.

56% of the murder victims of 2020 were black.

While people of all races were more likely to be murdered in the year of Black Lives Matter, black people were disproportionately likely to be killed as a result of police defunding and the George Floyd Effect, as well as the pressure on the justice system to open up prisons, free criminals, and stop arresting new criminals in the name of fighting for the big lie of racial justice.

3,060 white and Latino people were killed in 2019, which rose to 4,167 in 2020. The 36% increase is devastating, but the number of black people murdered in 2020 shot up 62%.

The 62% increase in the murders of black people should be the headline in every single media outlet.

The media is, of course, focused on the relative few blacks killed by police — especially those who are “unarmed.” Yet there’s nary a peep about the bloody streets of Democrat urban centers.

If the 2,244 black people had been shot by white people, Asian people, or Republicans, we could talk about it. Indeed, the odds are that we would never talk about anything else. Ever.

But unfortunately it’s the devastating result of black-on-black crime.

Black perpetrators were responsible for 5,832 murders or approximately 50% of the murders despite making up only around 13% of the population.

Murder is “also the leading cause of death for black men from 20-44 years old at 27.6%.”

These are just statistics. These are just facts. Every American should be outraged at the murders happening in our country. And every American should be advocating for policies based on the fact that black lives actually do matter, not backing an organized Marxist group that’s little more than a front for the Democrat Party.

Greenfield lays out the bottom line: “The question is how many black people have to die until the big lie of systemic racism, the scam of anti-racism, and the criminal justice reform killing fields end.”
