Native Americans Still More Likely to be Killed By Police; You Ignore the Facts

According to numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Health Statistics, and the Center for Juvenile and Criminal Justice,
"The racial group most likely to be killed by law enforcement is Native Americans..."

I don't see any campaign on TV or the internet to protect Native lives. Hey, you 'lives-matter' people... do something about THAT, why don't ya? Wait... you can't. You can't do anything because you only do something if you are told to do it, or if it's 'cool'. You are so worthless. Does it make you feel good about yourselves to talk about lives mattering? You know you don't really do jack squat... you are utterly out of touch and clueless about what is really happening in the world.

If you truly wanted to help, you'd take the cases where innocent people were killed by police for no reason at all, good or bad. But you don't. You pick the ones where the victim is of questionable character.

I'm beginning to wonder if you aren't trying to incite racial hatred, anyway. You make martyrs out of exactly the wrong people, while completely ignoring when innocent kids are being killed by police. You ignore the cases that would be a good example and use these other examples, knowing that folks will see the videos of those kids beating up and bullying people before the police killed them and lose sympathy.

Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin were not the best examples. You could have taken sweet little Aiyana Stanley Jones, or one of many from the lists found on the internet of the innocent victims of law enforcement. Most of them are white, though. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also reports that over the span of more than a decade, around 2,000 whites were killed by police compared to around 1,000 blacks. Yes, about twice as many white people are killed by police, although, per capita, Native Americans, followed by blacks, are the most likely to be killed by police.

Maybe you just don't want to admit that the problem isn't racism, it's statism.

I know my words here are probably in vain. I know my rant won't wake anyone up. It's just so frustrating that I have to write it somewhere and this blog is pretty much my only outlet.
