In the aftermath of the tragic death of the young man in Minneapolis, Democrats and their sycophants in the media are carrying on the biggest scam perpetrated on the American people since LBJ with his Great Society and Tonkin Gulf incident in 1965. Thanks to Councilwoman Demetrus Coonrod for publicly standing up to black on black crime, especially homicide, yesterday.
Once again it seems BLM matters only in the extremely rare occurrence when a black man is murdered by a white person. Here are some actual statistics as compiled by the FBI on 2018 homicides where the race of the offender is known.
In 2018, 2,925 blacks were murdered. Exactly 234 of 2,925 were killed by white people which works out to 8 percent. In other words 92 percent of black people were murdered by their fellow blacks.
Out of 6,570 total murders, 3,114 were committed by black people which is 44 percent. So one demographic that makes up 13 percent of the population committed 44 percent of the murders.
Three thousand, three hundred and fifteen white people were murdered, 514 by black people. That comes out to 15 percent or almost twice the percentage of whites murdering blacks.
And where are the professional victims and protesters mourning the death of Kahlil Strickland that the council members mentioned yesterday?
I have said before I opposed Ms. Coonrod when she ran but I am happy to admit I was 100 percent wrong.

I think for the very first time in my life, two wrongs wound up with a right for I, too, was full of angst at the election of Ms. Coonrod. But just like you, Mr. Jones, I was also 100 percent dead wrong.
I was not there and my opinion is based solely on what I have read but I believe the knee-taking from those two beautiful police women with the peaceful segment of the protesters is worthy of national attention. That all happened in spite of some "unidentified" white person's attempt to incite with a recording of George Floyd's horrific death struggle. Then you have the comments by Ms. Coonrod.
Thank you Chattanogan for posting her comments in their entirety. I had no idea that those remarks came some two days after Ms. Coonrod's grandbaby lost her 23 year old daddy in a mindless, grizzly way. I have no words and was/am pretty tearful at the concept of a grandmomma trying to explain that to a four year old. What a nightmare!
My heart goes out to Ms. Coonrod and her family. I hope they can learn to cope. However, this much is clear to me: Demetrus Coonrod is an American Hero who has just earned at least two ardent fans- me and Mr. Jones.
