Something is just not right with me. In fact, I’m downright rude. I have a
tendency to crash protests even though no one invited me. It happened when I
donned a burka back in 2003 disguising myself as an Iraqi woman in order to
infiltrate a campus protest against the War in Iraq. It happened again in 2009
when I joined a protest against myself at UMASS-Amherst. It happened yet again
last Saturday night when I went to Ferguson and protested against the man while
holding a sign saying “Hands up, Don’t Shoot!” I learned a lot that night. So
today I’m writing a column to share it with my readers.
I only spoke with a few protestors in Ferguson. And I only asked them a few
questions. But the responses were still revealing. In fact, they revealed two
undeniable truths that some readers could have gleaned from extensive media
coverage of the protests:
1. Ferguson protestors are bored and
in need of a cause. I struck up a conversation with a middle-aged black
woman who brought a longhaired Chihuahua to the protest. Her dog seemed to like
me. That’s how we struck up a conversation. At one point in that conversation
she told me I was making history by participating in the protests. She had been
protesting for eight consecutive days. She added that we needed to go back to
the protest era of the 1960s. I silently thought it would be nice to go back to
a time when people didn’t terrorize their own neighbors in the name of civil
Another protestor who we will call Ron (because that’s his name) said that we
needed to bring attention to all the hidden injustices taking place in black
neighborhoods. He added, “This kind of thing happens every day.” When I pressed
him on whether unarmed black men were being shot every day, he gave me some
clarification. He noted that black men were often pulled over for no reason. In
fact, it had once happened to him. Ron was probably in his mid-thirties and had
been living in that neighborhood his whole life.
When you talk to these protestors, you get the sense that they are sincerely
angry and in need of some way of redressing their grievances. It’s just that
they have difficulty articulating exactly what those grievances are.
2. Any black civil rights cause must
focus on what whites have done to black in the past, not on what blacks are
doing to other blacks right now.
Ron wasn’t able to name any other examples (besides Michael Brown) of unarmed
black men being shot in his neighborhood. But he did explain why it was so
important. According to Ron, black people are doing all kinds of bad things to
each other on a daily basis. Given that pressure, the black community just can’t
handle the extra pressure of a white cop shooting a black kid. So the question
for Ron is pretty obvious. If you are looking for something to protest, which
one will it be; a) the bad things blacks do to each other every day, or b) the
one shooting of an unarmed innocent black man (by a bad white man) you can point
to in a period of about thirty years of living in the neighborhood.
Of course, we all know the answer. It is “b.” It’s the only option for Ron
because it’s the only option black culture allows.
Fortunately, there is a solution for this dilemma. If the Ferguson protestors
are bored and need a cause – and one that focuses on bad white people – I have
one for them. It’s called abortion.
Blacks are only 12 percent of the population in America. But 36 percent of the
babies aborted are black. That means that of the more than 3000 babies aborted
per day in America over 1000 of them are black. To put things in historical
perspective, doctors wearing white masks abort at least 7000 babies in a week.
Klansmen wearing white hoods have lynched fewer blacks in the entire history of
Given that Planned Parenthood is right there in the hood, and that they were
born (not pun intended) of the white-dominated eugenics movement, the solution
is pretty simple. Stop committing uncivil wrongs against your own people in the
name of civil rights. To put it bluntly, stop defecating in your own back yard.
Join the pro-life movement instead.
After all, the unborn are disproportionately black, always unarmed, and never
guilty. Someone has to protect them from white doctors wielding lethal weapons
