The Fallacy of Systemic Racism
We have been hearing a lot lately about systemic racism; the assumption that a large portion of the white population practices racism, along with white law enforcement officers, and that blacks are always the victims. But, except for a small number of unarmed blacks killed by police over many years, there is little evidence to support this charge. Some of the police officers cited were simply trying to prevent their own deaths, as was the case with Michael Brown.
If systemic or institutional racism can be best proved by examples of the practice and execution of racist actions, then the evidence strongly suggests that any modern-day racism is most often committed by blacks against whites. There are literally thousands of examples from nearly every day across America and in recent decades. Unprovoked beatings of whites by blacks, and murders of whites by blacks, are commonplace and few get any attention in the press. What is worse, is that Google’s algorithm covers up these crimes and the factual circumstances, and presents results of alleged white racism or incidents that happened a century or more ago.
There is the assumption of systemic racism in the minds of many Americans based on some police shootings of black men and the oft-repeated narrative that this is a deeply ingrained problem in America. The true indication of racism though, would be the actions of one racial group against another racial group in the form of assaults or murders. This would present an unarguable measure of racism that is not simply internalized or suspected, but proven through actions and injuries or deaths.
The evidence, from actual news reports, police reports, DOJ data and FBI crime statistics, shows widespread and frequent assaults and murders of white people by black males going back decades. Not only does the record show attacks on innocent people on the street of cities and towns across America, but the record also shows the murder of hundreds of police officers by black males. While the protesters of today can reel off a short list of black men who were killed by police under different circumstances, the untold story of all the white victims and police officer victims is shocking and compelling.
The real story of how a sub-population of the U.S. could take so many innocent lives deserves nationwide protests, but none of those protesting really care about white victims or the hundreds of police officers who have been killed. So many of those victims families must ask; “where is the justice for us?”
According to a May, 2018 Washington Post story, “The number of deadly police shootings of unarmed people has generally declined since 2015. Fatal shootings of unarmed black men — such as the high-profile case in March of Stephon Clark in Sacramento — are among the kinds of killings that have fallen.”
Keep in mind that when the media uses the phrase “unarmed black men,” that doesn’t mean that the police officers on the scene knew for certain that the person was unarmed. If a police officer sees an object that appears to be a gun and that object is directed at the police officer, or the suspect is not being responsive to police commands, then there is a great likelihood that the police officer will die by hesitating.
Many more cases are like the one of Joseph Thompson Johnson-Shanks, a 25-year old black man, who in September 2015, killed Joseph Ponder, a white Kentucky State Trooper, and then still had the gun when confronted by other troopers. Shanks was ordered to drop the gun, but he chose not to.
Trooper Ponder was a U.S. Navy veteran.
On June 6, 2020, Santa Cruz deputy sheriff Sergeant Damon Gutzwiller was killed and two other deputies were injured, one critically, when they were ambushed. Sgt. Gutzwiller had a young child at home and his wife is pregnant with a second child. Both children will never know their father. No doubt, the shooter was motivated by the anti-police environment that permeates everything across the country.
From a 2016 article in the New York Times; “The heavily armed sniper who gunned down police officers in downtown Dallas, leaving five of them dead, specifically set out to kill as many white officers as he could, officials said.”
From CBS News; “The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” Brown said.” The 25-year old black man responsible for the attack was Micah Xavier Johnson.
In one of many attacks on police officers during the Obama administration, a black sniper in Dallas engaged in an ambush attack and shot 12 police officers, killing five. The officers were providing crowd safety assignments at an anti-police protest.
Just 10 days later, a black gunman targeted officers in Baton Rouge, killing three and injuring three others. The shooters name was Gavin Long, another black man who planned his ambush attack of officers ahead of time. Two of the three dead officers were white.
Also, in Baton Rouge, in April of this year (2020) a black male named Ronnie DeWayne Kato Jr. shot two police officers; Lt. Glenn Dale Hutto, 45, was killed and Cpl. Derrick Maglone was critically injured. Kato stood over officer Hutto and shot him several more times as he lay on the ground. At an earlier date, Kato had said he planned to kill police officers.
In 2016, the U.S. saw the most felonious (intentional) deaths of law enforcement officers in five years, with 92 intentional deaths, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
In New York City, in 2017, officer Miosotis Familia was just sitting in her squad car getting ready to finish up the night, when a 34-year old black man named Alexander Bonds walked up next to the car and shot her in the head. She was later pronounced dead.
Of the 40 million black people in the United States, 9 were shot by police in 2019 under circumstances that didn’t include a gun pointed at officers. In 2020, there have been three, including George Floyd. If a population has 40 million people and 9 people die for any reason, it does not indicate that there is anything systemic about it.
This indicates that 0.000000225% of the black population are killed by police under questionable circumstances. To hear protesters talk, every fifth black person has died at the hands of police.
Black on White Violence and Homicide
The numbers of black on white racially-motivated hate crimes number in the thousands annually. Here are just some examples that have received national news coverage. Most black on white assaults and incidents only receive local news coverage and seem to be of little interest to mass media because the attacks don’t comport to the important ideological narratives that media has embraced.
In 2012, the nation watched as video showed the brutal attack in Baltimore of a white tourist on St. Patrick’s Day by a group of blacks. The white man was a tourist from Virginia and was brutally punched by several in the group and fell so hard that his head can be heard in the video as it hits the concrete. The crowd strips him naked and takes his car keys, watch, money and iPhone. Aaron Parsons and DeAngelo Carter were two of the black teens eventually arrested. Their video, posted on social media, received thousands of views and comments of appreciation by other young blacks.
Two different black men videotaped the attack and when the white tourist was punched in the face, another black youth is heard on the video saying; “Smackdown!” It is clear in the video that the white tourist was singled out for the assault and robbery.
The “knock-out game” was a trend practiced by young black males beginning as early as 1992 until 2018. The object is to see if you can render your victim unconscious with one punch. The victims were nearly always white people. The very nature of this type of violent assault on a victim’s face and head often results in brain damage or death.
In 2015, in Cleveland, just after St. Patrick’s Day festivities, a series of black-on-white knock-out game attacks occurred. According to Cleveland.com; “At least six white adults were attacked near Public Square without provocation by roaming bands of young African-Americans described as juveniles. One of the victims, a 23-year-old man from Akron, woke up in an ambulance after being ambushed.”
By 2013, there had already been four deaths of white victims because of the practice. Victims in Syracuse, St. Louis, Chicago and Hoboken all died from their injuries. In the Hoboken attack, the three black males who killed the victim were just 13 and 14 years old.
Of the three teens who murdered the victim, two received probation and one got time in a juvenile facility. Were there cries by non-blacks of “no justice, no peace” across the country. No more so than when black teens murdered a Barnard College freshman named Tessa Majors last year. Majors was a white student from Virginia. Although her murder resembled so many others of white female college students, there was no rioting by whites, no protest marches, no demands for reform for the thousands of black on white racial attacks and murders.
This young 18-year old woman had her whole life ahead of her, yet she was a white person out at night in a park in New York.
The 14-year old black teen who used the knife that killed her was released. Like the black teens who murdered the man in Hoboken, the teens who stabbed Majors in the heart were 13 and 14. While this happened in Morningside Park, the details resemble the attack on the white jogger in Central Park by a group of blacks who said they were looking for “vics.”
On March 29, 2019, the 21-year-old white college student named Samantha Josephson walked out of a bar in Five Points, South Carolina and waited for an Uber ride. A black male, named Nathaniel David Rowland, posing as a ride share driver picked Josephson up. He had already engaged the child locks in the back seat, preparing for his victim. Rowland then raped and stabbed Josephson to death.
Hunters found her body 70 miles away in a remote area. Rowland already had a criminal history and should not have even been out on the street. There were no national protests in support of Samantha Josephson or against a string of rapes and murders of white women by black males.
In a 2010 Southern Poverty Law Center article about whites being the victims of hate crimes, the author stated: “In November, following a four-month investigation, police in Denver arrested 35 black men and teens and charged them with 26 racially motivated beatings and robberies in the city’s downtown area. Their alleged victims were all white or Latino males.”
The article went on the state: “Another white-hating group called the National Black Foot Soldier Network recently heaped praise on Maurice Clemmons, the black man accused of murdering four white Lakewood, Wash., police officers as they sat in a coffee shop in November. The network — which says on its website that “all white people are terrorists” — called the killings a “protest against the racist regime of Lakewood police terrorists.” It also praised Lovelle Mixon, a black man who killed four police officers, three white and one Asian-American, in Oakland, Calif., last year.”
There was also several beatings and killings of white people in the Ghent area of Norfolk in the 80s. Happening at nighttime, the attacks were unprovoked and left some victims with brain injuries and facial wounds so severe that one mother was unable to identify her son’s body.
In 1992, in the wake of the Rodney King verdict, protests in Atlanta turned violent as black demonstrators openly attacked white people who were just outdoors on their lunch breaks from work.
The crowds of young blacks clashed with police and vandalized downtown properties. Their unprovoked attacks on anyone who was white were racially motivated and left many people with severe injuries, including some with permanent brain damage.
In 2011, mobs of black teens went on a crime spree targeting white victims on Chicago Transit trains. In a long stretch of brutal attacks and robberies, the groups of 15 or more black teens robbed and assaulted their victims.
In the same city, and in an ironic twist of the facts and truth, a story was fabricated by actor Jussie Smollett that white men with MAGA hats put a noose around his neck. The story was later found out to be untrue and that Smollett had hired two friends to assist in the false story. Despite the fact that the story turned out to be a lie, the media perpetuated it and allowed millions of white supporters of the president to be impugned by a falsehood.
The 90s say the worst kind of racist violence against white people as the decade witnessed the white genocide in South Africa. From 1991 to 1997, blacks targeted white farmers and committed 677 murders and 3,065 attacks with serious injuries. There were no national protests in the U.S. in support of the innocent white farmers who were murdered.
Todd Lyons, 33, of Manhattan, a black man, attacked four white people in 2019 and badly injured them because he said he hated whites.
In 1992, Reginald Denny, a white truck driver, was targeted, dragged out of his truck and nearly beaten to death by having bricks smashed against his head on live TV during the L.A. riots, by a group of blacks because of his race. Denney was left with brain damage.
The attack occurred just three hours after the Rodney King verdict. It was witnessed by cameras in a helicopter hovering over the scene. Although a national audience watched Denny’s brutal beating, there were no national riots or protests by whites about the racist attack.
The riots lasted six days, left 55 dead and more than 2,000 injured; mostly whites and Asians.
In 2016, blacks attacked whites in Chicago, accusing the victims of being “Trump supporters.” In one incident, recorded on video on November 9, a young white man at South Kedzie Avenue intersects West Roosevelt Road on Chicago’s West Side is seen being beaten in the street by a group of blacks as he tries to cover his head as he is kicked in the stomach and head.
Also, in Chicago, in January of 2017, a white teen with mental disabilities was kidnapped, beaten and tortured and live-streamed on Facebook by four blacks as the torture was videotaped. The white teen was treated like an animal and was brutalized by those who held him.
In 2012, a group of 30 blacks attacked two white Virginia-Pilot reporters. The reporters own newspaper attempted to hide the attack and did not publish a story about it because the reporters were white and the attackers were black. Reporters Marjon Rostami and Dave Forster were attacked on April 14th at the corner of Church Street and Brambleton Avenue. The paper’s editor tried to hide the attack, even against his own reporters.
Also, in Norfolk, in 2007, a group of 11-16 black teens attacked three white men because of their race and severely beat two and murdered one. James Robertson, a white 19-year-old who was visiting from Georgia, died after the attack. The autopsy of Robertson revealed that he had been kicked, beaten and stomped by gang members. He suffered severe head trauma. For killing the young white man, the killers were able to steal $12. Most of the blacks, including Raymond Ahmad, 29 and Melvin Arrington, 18, were given light sentences.
In August of 2019, also in Minneapolis where the George Floyd incident happened, a group of 16 black males, ages 13 to 25, were arrested for targeting white people for robberies and beatings. The group was seen on video surveillance savagely beating their victims and even riding a bike over the prone body of one. The attacks were very obviously racist in nature because all of the victims were white. At the time, robbery was up 46% in downtown Minneapolis.
This is some of the recent experience of Minneapolis police. They had witnessed increases in crime by one local population, as well as racially-motivated attacks on white victims.
The Challenge of Obtaining the Truth
For anyone attempting to learn the truth about this systemic racism in the black community, it is very difficult to obtain information.
Google manipulates search results to hide these attacks and crimes to aid in creating a false narrative that racism all originates with whites. (do your own test……..you will be shocked)
Thousands of white police officers have saved black people who were trapped in burning cars or house fires. Those officers took personal risk to save these people. I could write an entire book telling this story, that goes ignored and marginalized by the media and the popular narrative about racist cops.
Thousands more white police officers have engaged in charitable work and individual acts of kindness to benefit black kids and black communities. These acts are quickly forgotten.
On Monday night, June 1, Las Vegas police officer, Shay Mikalonis, was shot in the head and critically injured during protests there. The shooter, 20-year-old Edgar Samaniego, is Hispanic, and was a participant in a Black Lives Matter protest. The 29-year old officer remains on life support at this time.
More Police who were Victims
On a sunny Sunday morning in November of 2009, a black man named Maurice Clemmons walked into a coffee shop in Parkland in Pierce County, Washington and shot and killed four white Lakewood police officers. Records showed that Clemmons should not have even been on the street and should have been in jail for other crimes. He was known to have a hatred for police officers.
Clemmons had an extensive and violent rap sheet and had been released from jail just days earlier.
The mass murder of officers left 9 children without a parent. Several of Clemmons family and friends helped hide him over the next two days.
Earlier that year, in March, in Oakland, California, Lovelle Mixon, 27, a black man who lived in Oakland murdered four Oakland police officers; three white and one Asian. Mixon had just recently been paroled from prison by the state of California.
In January of 2020, South Carolina Public Safety Officer Jackson Ryan Winkeler, a white officer, was shot and killed by James Edward Bell, 37, a black male. That same month on January 23, in Newport News, Virginia, officer Katherine Mary Thyne was killed by Vernon Evander Green II, a black male, who had just committed armed robbery and dragged the officer with his car, then pinning her between the vehicle and a tree. Thyne was white.
White Lives Don’t Matter
In 2016, Tony Timpa, a white man in Dallas called Dallas police for help. They ended up taking his life by pinning him to the ground for 30 minutes as he begged you’re going to kill me” before falling unconscious while he was still held down until he died. There was no national outcry or protests or riots. The video of the incident shows Timpa stating “you’re going to kill me” before he expires. If it is only blacks who are treated like this by officers, then why is Timpa’s story in the ash heap of history? Why do you now know about this story? Because Timpa is white? Do white lives matter?
In the same city, five Dallas police officers were murdered by a black sniper who killed them as they attempted to provide security for an anti-police protest.
In the past, the left created a narrative that accused police offers of pulling over black drivers more frequently. This was under the banner of “racial profiling.” A study commissioned by the New Jersey attorney general’s office in 2002, referred to as the Turnpike Study, found that black drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike were twice as likely as white drivers to speed. The study found that they were also more likely to exceed 90 miles an hour.
The study established a “violator benchmark” which dispelled many charges of police racial profiling in ticketing. The ACLU had earlier claimed that if the percent of stops of black motorists exceeded the percentage of the local black population, then it must be police racism. The truth was found in an actual study.
In 2015, 994 people were shot by police; 497 whites, 258 blacks and 172 Hispanics. Some others were Asian or unknown race. The majority of the black males killed were in possession of a gun at the time and were directed by police to put the gun down. They did not comply.
There may be institutional racism, but it is most prevalent in the black community, not the white community as most young people have been convinced of. The evidence is most often capture on surveillance and security cameras these days. The evidence has shown whites targeted regularly across the country and frequently murdered. There are no similar attacks by gangs of whites on innocent black people.
Do we have a systemic problem with police officers killing black men? Ask the hundreds of families of slain officers what they think. There are no national protests in support of those families dead loved ones.
Some narratives are just accepted out-of-hand. It is easy to accept the narrative instead of questioning the facts that might back it up or tear it down. The evil, racist police narrative is one that goes unquestioned by many. Especially for those under 40, it is a part of common folklore, entrenched belief and the go-along to get-along mentality. Nobody dares question its authenticity.
With substantial proof of active racism or acts of racism, it is clear that the only provable systemic racism in America is racism practiced towards white victims and not against black people. The assumption of a pattern of systemic or institutional racism would have to indicate that it is both widespread, commonly practiced and resulting in quantitative or measurable actions, incidents or assaults. There is clear evidence of systemic racism in the black community, but only perceived or suggested systemic racism in the white community. Furthering a popular narrative without empirical data, video evidence or factual, supported examples on a large scale is not indicative of endemic racism by white people or white police officers.
Young people instinctively repeat the phrase “black lives matter,” knowing full well that they will be ostracized and ridiculed if they suggest that “all lives matter.” Although the first phrase assumes that only black lives matter, the inherent racism in the phrase is missed by those who repeat it. All lives matter because we were created equal and God created all people in His image. To repeat the phrase “black lives matter,” and turn it into a popular cultural mantra, is to dismiss and marginalize the importance of the lives of whites, Hispanics and Asians. It is inherently exclusionary.
Divide and conquer. Ahead of a presidential election, this strategy works for the Democratic Party. Paint those who keep and enforce the law and keep us safe as the enemy of the people, divide people by race, spur on false narratives, and you can regain power.
