And I felt compelled to share here:

"71% of the cops killed so far this year have been killed by white dudes.

White people comprise 63.7% of the population. Divide that by two and you have 31.85% (OK, really 31.3%, since men comprise 49.2% of the population.)

So white men are killing cops at better than twice their percentage of the population.

Listen for the outrage about that and all you'll hear are crickets chirping away."

Here is the link for Mr. Shaun King's article:

3. Truth being told again!


You best believe that if a 59% rise in the number of police officers shot and killed in the line of duty could be blamed on immigrants, Mexicans, or black folk, it would be a regular conservative talking point.

Instead, Donald Trump has never mentioned these fallen officers on the campaign trail because it may have very well been his supporters who did the shooting for all he knows.


It appears that blue lives only matter to popular conservatives when they are taken by somebody they can easily demonize
. In the meantime, police groups continue to protest a black woman when a black woman hasn't killed an officer in years.

4. When any conservative talks about "life" mattering

Whether it be cops, fetii or "ALL LIVES" they are only talking about how those lives matter to further their agenda.

There is no intrinsic value to life in their eyes
