Black Lies Matter: Why Lies Matter to the Race Grievance Industry
a book by Taleeb Starkes
(our site's book review)
The Amazon blurb says that In Chicago a.k.a “Chiraq," the first ten days of 2016 yielded 120 people shot. Baltimore’s 2015 ended as its bloodiest and deadliest year — on a per-capita basis. In 2014, Detroit’s police chief called upon law-abiding citizens to take arms against its burgeoning, violent, criminal subculture. Unfortunately, these cities aren’t anomalies. Year after year, a seemingly unshakable reality of violence plagues black communities nationwide. In fact, since 1980, blacks have routinely accounted for almost half of America’s annual homicide victims, and more than half of the perpetrators — all while being a minor thirteen percent of the national populace.
Yet, a certain black-based industry — which specializes in nurturing comfortable lies while burying uncomfortable truths — propagates a notion that “racism” is the foremost issue facing black Americans, and white cops are blood-thirsty enforcers. Moreover, this cunning, race-peddling entity knows that it's easier to lie to blacks than to convince blacks that they've been lied to. Thus, black "lies" are good for business... black "lives" are good for nothing (except exploitation). And presently, business is booming.
I've voted for change so many times and Dems kept claiming they heard Black people's words, yet things have only gotten worse! I think I'll give the Republicans a try next time . . .
"To listen to Representatives Charlie Rangel of Harlem and Maxine Waters of Watts, one would think that Jim Crow laws had returned and were in force in every state in the Union. If we oppose them, we are racists. If we oppose President Obama’s Socialist agenda, we’re racists. If we want the Bush tax cuts to remain in place so that our economy doesn’t fall into the deep, like California in the midst of a 10.5 earthquake—we’re racists."

The left treats blacks like whimpering pets that they can trot out in commercials to gain more votes, taxes, and power. The right wants to treat them as adults
Gavin McInnes says "The left treats blacks like whimpering pets that they can trot out in commercials to gain more votes, taxes, and power. The right wants to treat them as adults."
Charles Haddon Spurgeon says "A lie will go round the world while truth is pulling its boots on."
The ugly, racist 1619 Project is the cynical, anti-American, traitorous brainchild published by the biggest sellouts in the history of journalism: The New York Times—whose new motto is probably All the Propaganda That's Unfit to Print; See 1620: A Critical Response to the 1619 Project
Starkes says that "The Race Grievance Industry’s sole purpose is to profit from racial strife under the guise of pursuing racial peace. Its modus operandi is rooted in a lie that refuses to die: blacks are permanent victims of racism, and no amount of effort will overcome it. The lie is rinsed and repeated in different ways, but the message remains unchanged — America is a racist labyrinth specifically designed to stifle black advancement."
Here's Shakedown Obozo; The Race Grievance Industry’s sole purpose is to profit from racial strife under the guise of pursuing racial peace; Obozo and Al Sharpton played the race card consantly in their covert race war; and if we oppose President Obama’s Socialist agenda, we’re racists
Starkes says that "Robert F. Kennedy Jr. wrote
these scathing comments about
“Shakedown” Sharpton in his diary:
“Al Sharpton has done more damage to the black cause than George Wallace [segregationist Alabama Governor]. He has suffocated the decent black leaders in New York,” — “His transparent venal blackmail and extortion schemes taint all black leadership.”
Historically, white liberals have been the puppeteers of black movements while the foot-soldiers were mostly non-white
Starkes says that "The Democratic party is the official party of the Race Grievance Industry, and it’s due to the Democrats’ overview of government as the savior. This belief perfectly suits the Race Grievance Industry’s platform of victimization. As long as the Democrats continue to validate black victimhood, the Race Grievance Industry will ensure that blacks remain on the Democratic plantation."
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime; Democrats give citizens fish sticks and teach them only this: blacks are victims and whites are victimizers
Starkes says that "Characteristically, the Democratic party prefers handouts to a hand up, and that’s the reason it doesn’t teach people how to fish; instead, it provides fish sticks. Yep, it’s the party of fish sticks. In fact, the city council of majority black and Democrat-ruled Washington, D.C., unanimously approved a bill that included a proposal to pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes." [Note: In other words, black residents, please come and extort us since we all know you are criminals at heart. Sounds racist to us.]
As long as the Democrats continue to validate black victimhood, the Race Grievance Industry will ensure that blacks remain on the Democrat plantation
Starkes asks Why did the chicken cross the road? He admits ignorance on the matter, but then cites a study showing blacks having to wait 32% longer than whites to cross the street at a crosswalk. Is this racism or were other variables involved that the studies overlooked?
Why did the chicken cross the road? Starkes notes that blacks have to wait 32% longer than whites to cross the street at a crosswalk
"The hard data is both astonishing and appalling: Blacks, constituting 13 percent of the U.S. population, kill 90 percent of black murder victims. Whites, Asians, and Latinos, composing 87 percent of the population, kill 10 percent of black murder victims. This point alone is sufficient to refute the claim that racist whites are the dominant threat to black American lives.
"It gets worse. Starkes writes, “The numbers tell only part of the story of this largely urban war, where the victims [bear] an uncanny resemblance to their killers”. As Starkes details, some of the black-on-black murders are unspeakably ghastly. For example, in 2014 in the Detroit suburb of Inkster, a gangbanger walked onto the porch of a rival gang member and shot his two-year-old daughter, Kamiya French, in the head, killing her in front of her father to make him suffer."
"In 2015 in Chicago—which is often referred to by law enforcement as “Chiraq,” because its high-crime areas are akin to combat zones—a gang member shot nine-year-old Tyshawn Lee in the head, murdering him to punish his father, a member of a rival gang. The murderer even composed a rap to commemorate the killing.
BLM’s official website says its members ‘affirm that all Black Lives Matter, yet 90% of black lives are snuffed out by black thugs—not police
“According to BLM’s official website,” Starkes points out, “its members ‘affirm that all Black Lives Matter’”. And yet, every year thousands of black lives are snuffed out by black thugs—“urban terrorists,” as Starkes aptly describes them—and we do not hear a peep out of BLM. The numbers that Starkes cites regarding black-on-black murders are evidence of a Holocaust. Yet, judging by BLM’s closed-eyes, closed-mouth silence, the group regards this as a nonissue [the bottom line: only liberal-narrative-supporting black lives matter].
"Starkes gives sufficient raw data for us to draw a baleful conclusion: BLM is an utterly racist organization that cares little or not at all about innocent black lives. . . . Contemporary Marxists have added a race-war element to their class-war ideology, and nobody has done this more vocally or violently than Black Lives Matter. This, in part, is what makes it such a viciously dangerous organization."

BLM supporters didn’t stop chanting 'Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon' at a BLM protest where one protester murdered 5 cops, unprovoked
BLM's agenda is plain for all to see: cop-killing
"Its agenda is plain for all to see: cop-killing. With another two police officers shot at the Black Lives Matter riot in Louisville on Wednesday, it’s time to lift the veil on the whole movement: It’s a haven for unrepentant cop-killers. These aren’t isolated incidents. It has been fewer than two weeks since supposedly “peaceful” BLM radicals chanted, 'We hope they die,' while blocking the entrance to a hospital where two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were undergoing life-saving surgery. An assailant had walked up to their patrol vehicle and opened fire from point-blank range without provocation." (Source: Face facts: ‘Black Lives Matter’ is all about hate, Rudy Giuliani, NY Post)
Ferguson, Missouri, August 17, 2014
More people are becoming fed up with the artificial divisiveness promoted by the "race grievance industry." More whites are becoming tired of being blamed for every bad thing that happens to black people-- and more blacks are becoming tired of being perpetually cast as "victims." Criminals are treated as victims, and real victims are ignored. The author provides evidence of the unfairness, and the profits to the Race Grievance Industry. We are well aware that it happens. The author provides ample evidence, but things continue. This book just documents this ugly reality.
Kudos to a black man for having the courage to write a book like this that exposes the corruption and hypocrisy of the Race Grievance Industry. It isn't the whites that are brazenly victimizing the black folks in our communities. It's the Race Grievance Industry. Racist Obozo's legacy is about race-baiting and divisiveness creation, and yet the mainstream media ignored this stuff. Although as with other books that speak the truth it will be ignored or attacked by the BLM folks, liberal media and the Democrat Party who have way too much to lose by discontinuing their extortion campaigns. Taleeb Starkes does an excellent job painting a picture of what and who is killing the progress that America has made in race relations up to this point in history. A must read!
A good new trend arising lately is that more whites are becoming tired of being blamed for every bad thing that happens to black people-- and more blacks are becoming tired of being perpetually cast as 'victims'
