Yes, I know I will be called a racist, bigot, homophobe, xenophobe, “white supremacist” (whatever the hell that is) for the opinion I will express below. First, I don’t think you could find a more diverse community than the one I have lived in for the last 25 years. We have whites, blacks, Indians, Koreans, Chinese, Mexicans, and probably some former residents of Belarus. I have a black family on one side of my home and a lesbian couple on the other side. We all get along just fine, thank you.
Why do I make a point of this? My neighbors are good, honest, hard-working folks. Black people make up only 12.2% of the US population but here is my observation: In all of the video of riots and looting I have seen, it shows black hoodlums looting, stealing washing machines, TVs, anything that is not bolted down including Christmas trees. (A little early Christmas shopping, I guess).
I’m sure there must be some white people involved in this looting. No question that Antifa, which is a violent black group, is joined by young white females. No, I can’t explain that mindset. But I haven’t seen any white females breaking windows and doors and looting stores.
The latest looting spree is taking place in Philadelphia because police were forced to kill a black man who was threatening them with a knife. The police had been called to that address 30 times in the past, and 3 times on the day that Mr. Wallace (who had warrants out on him) chose to advance on police wielding a knife. Helpful hint: If you want to remain alive, don’t threaten police with a weapon of any kind. BTW, the police stood down while the looting was taking place and did nothing to stop it. Rumor has it that authorities had told them to do nothing.
Can it be that these videos just focus on blacks? I don’t think so. It’s usually wide shots of the looting because the camera crews must stay some distance away for their own safety. I’m sure my black neighbors wouldn’t consider looting any more than I would, but there is no question that the video I have seen clearly shows a majority of blacks doing the looting. And, of course, the police don’t interfere because they don’t want to be called racists either.
Where is Al Sharpton? Where is Jesse Jackson? If influential blacks have any concern over this perception of their race they should be speaking up. This rioting and looting is domestic terrorism. And it is going to take military force to capture and imprison these thugs, because enough is enough. This kind of blatant law breaking must not be tolerated.
