America has heard plenty from Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Joe Biden, former President George Bush, the mainstream media, and others about the systemic racism in America and especially American law enforcement. Many voices saying the same thing, but something seems wrong.
What is systemic racism? How can systemic racism be corrected? Is law enforcement racist through and through? Do officers target black people just because of their skin color? What is really happening? There is a diversity of thought on these matters, and the two people featured in this article have some alternate thoughts.
Black Americans, as well as all other Americans, can agree that the killing of George Floyd requires justice. The policeman Derek Chauvin, who indifferently kneeled on Floyd’s neck until he was dead, is in custody and is being charged for his death.
But some, probably many African Americans do not agree with BLM, race wars, and the destructiveness of the protests in America over the killing of George Floyd. They don’t want to see their neighborhoods destroyed and they do want the police to keep providing them protection from criminals.
The autopsy done on George Floyd determined the cause of death as: cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression.”
Floyd had hypertension and heart disease and he was high on drugs at the time of his arrest and death. The autopsy report revealed the fact that Floyd was high on fentanyl, and had recently used methamphetamine. It is actually not that easy to find the information about Floyd’s intoxication at the time of his arrest, and if news media has mentioned it, I missed it.
George Floyd was no stranger to arrests or prison and served multiple sentences for drug offenses. He also did time for armed robbery.
None of this background history justifies Floyd’s death while in police custody. It did, however, influence conservative commentator Candace Owens’ take on the event.
Candace Owens, a rising conservative star who happens to be black, expressed her thoughts about George Floyd’s death and its impact on the black community in a viral video that has racked up millions of views since she posted it. In the video, Owens expresses concern about the manner in which Floyd died and the reaction to it:
Confession: #GeorgeFloyd is neither a martyr or a hero. But I hope his family gets justice. https://t.co/Lnxz0usrp5

Update 6/10/20 Another black voice against BLM
Millions of black people know BLM is a terrorist group
There are millions of black people in America who know #BlackLivesMatter is a terrorist group funded by white Democrats.
Educated black Americans want absolutely nothing to do with them, and we will never ever take the knee.

Kash Lee Kelly
Kash Lee Kelly, another black voice, discusses Black Lives Matter, the organization. He agrees that black lives do matter, but he admonishes the black community to care about black lives first.
He said the Black Lives Matter organization doesn’t want to address the problems in the black community. In the video, he asks the black community: “When do black lives matter to black people? You know how many of my people get killed every day…due to violence in the hoods?”
Kelly lost two brothers or friends to violence in his neighborhood and says he can’t have his kids there because they might be shot, as one little girl that he mentions by name was.
A different way
Kelly proposed an alternate way to change black communities. He proposed that they start really caring about black lives and change the way they live. He asks the question, “We don’t care about our own lives, how can we expect the system to care about them?”
Addressing the idea of less policing in black neighborhoods, Kelly points out that if the police were to stop policing black neighborhoods, black people would die. Kids would die. He asks: “You know how many kids get killed in Chicago? It ain’t the police killing the kids.”
Black Lives Matter
He also criticized the organization Black Lives Matter:
“If you are going to be real, be real all across the board. Don’t get hyped up about these people (BLM), they tryna race bait you. Let’s change the way we live, make the change, then you’ll see things get better.”

grab people to click. You might try adding a video or a pic

would make your blog a little bit more interesting.
