• GOOD LUCK: “Black Lives Matter” Group Plans To Protest The Super Bowl

    Religious leaders in Phoenix, Arizona announced Tuesday that they plan to protest police brutality during one of America’s most watched sporting events.

    “As the Nation counts down to Super Bowl XLIX,” the group wrote in a press release, “Arizona’s Black community announces a new campaign incorporating the national theme ‘Black Lives Matter: Addressing The Violence Of Systemic Racism in America and Arizona.’ Black leaders and activists in Phoenix, Arizona have organized to monitor and document police misconduct and brutality across the country as the nation continues its ‘business as usual’ attitude of distraction and sport.”

    Rev. Jarrett Maupin, a group leader, said “We are challenging Arizona’s moral and social status quo. As long as the status quo allows others to perpetrate the violence of systemic racism on Black people, we will not be silent or immobile.”

    As I have said before, police brutality against black people is not what’s stifling black progress. That would be the lawlessness, the gravitation toward gang life, dropping out of school, rampant fatherlessness, etc.

    From Maupin to Sharpton to Obama, these so-called black leaders couldn’t care less about the real issues facing black people. The last thing they want to do is have an honest conversation about the persistently poor choices being made by a large number (not all) of black Americans that impede progress.


    They would rather cast black Americans as perpetual victims who need an all powerful federal government to right the wrongs beings brought about by a still-intrinsically racist society.

    The racial grievance mongers are playing a dangerous game. And unlike the Super Bowl, this game’s losers (oftentimes black people) could be hurt for generations to come.
