Ms. Pointer recounts her experience the night of the Dallas Shootings and also comments on the misunderstandings of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as the reactionary “All Lives Matter” and “Blue Lives Matter” movements.

The similarities between BLM and the various social media movements of the Arab Spring have a lot of similarities. BLM propagates a completely false perception of crime, race and police violence, one that justifies violence in return against whites and against police.

No racial inequality here in Texas. All inequality is social. The inequality is between Trump and Clinton in their pace for presidency is something we can see and discuss. The inequality of blacks is all about black’s set of mind. Yes, i would hate to see blacks in my neighborhood. Why? Because their kids are unfriendly and aggressive against white kids. That is the result of black set of mind in black families and crowds. My doughtier was initially critical to my stance but ones she got in black trouble, she changed her mind. My son was as a kid… Read more »

BLM is a racist organization with much of its FUNDING comes from G.Soros, a billionaire who desires to bring down America and the West.
I notice BLM does not care about blacks being murdered in America’s cities, 600 so far this year in Chicago alone, murdered by other blacks.

Correct. I married a very young girl. She was small too. Wanted her to finish school so asked her to go. After two days she refused. I asked why. She told me the black girls were beating up on the white girls. This was in 1955 in California. Obviously nothing has changed.
American blacks are so coddled by government they know they can get away with just about anything, so they do. It has been the destruction of the civilization, nothing less.
Only the media whines about the “poor blacks” these days.

I agree, black people get ‘BIG BENEFITS’ from the American Government and the progressive Media.

My son was greatly helped by a black origin man when he had an accident so no generalised badmouting of black people from me.

Imo and experience many, or more posiively put, at least some texans, are racist towards indians and hispanics. An important factor here is that in may poorer schooldictricts the funding, and therefore quality, of the education systems is often dubious.

Funding is not the problem. Baltimore and D.C. schools are at the top of the list for school funding but at the bottom for student performance. Blacks discourage ambitious blacks by telling them not to “think white.” Atlanta school officials went to jail for falsifying black student test scores. Blacks just can’t get a grip academically and parents don’t care about schools. Blacks fail because of their culture and resulting attitudes. Period. Hooray for that black gentleman who helped your son but we need to stay focused on what the majority in any group do. Blacks are heavily invested in… Read more »

It is the whites who are discriminated against in every way. The blacks are a privileged class.

Better we use a robot to kill the sniper than having a Black trooper go in to get him!

We all want social justice. I know a lot of white people and NOT one of them want Black folks to fail. NOT one white person I have known wants Black people to fail. When a Black person fails, the rest of society must PAY for their failure. We the crackercolored (which includes Asians, Latins etc) must pay for their jail time, special set aside bonuses, quota systems etc etc. as an example the ‘SAT’ scores are adjusted, minus 35 points for Asians, plus 160 points for those identifying as Blacks, and our lying liberal media calls that a level… Read more »

Back in Aug 24, I asked a question. “Why does Brad Blankenship” hold and promote so many anti-white attitudes.
Do you have actual facts or are facts to racist to present ?

The USA as a terrorist state must be destroyed! I hope once black people will rise and crush the Empire of Evil.The US will pay a high price for crimes against humanity around the world and this is inevitable.

If white America goes under, as is your fondest dream, Dark nof, you and your peeps will be back to hunting with spears and dying from easily treated diseases. Then it will be, “Why was we so stoopid to throw it all away when we had it so goooodd?”

mmm. The Fadels oppose Soros’ Arab Spring in Syria and support Soros’ Black Spring in the US! I always felt that the only thing that has awakened them from the Left’s slumber is the near loss of their nation! After spending years on Ziad’s blog I feel that many Syrians are like that.
