TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY CONSERVATIVE JACK CASHILL CONFRONTS ORIGINS OF 'BLACK LIVES MATTER' MOVEMENT!!!
Trayvon Martin was killed four years ago in a controversial neighborhood watch shooting and this week his mom recently delivered a motivational speech to an enthusiastic crowd on the topic of self-determination . . . Meanwhile, back in Kansas City, one of this town's most prolific authors attempts to explain a national movement that started in the immediate aftermath of the killing . . .
Jack Cashill: The Lie That Launched Black Lives Matter
Money line . . .
"If (President) Obama had called attention to the painful fractures in Martin’s domestic life, his suppressed criminal record, his all but unseen descent into drugs and violence, and especially his reckless attack on Zimmerman, Obama could have sent a powerful message to black America. But he did not. He went with the lie."
One of the best parts of Cashill's examination of this historic turning point in the nation's history is when the avowed Conservative and realist drops a hint that nobody would've cared if this was a Latino and a Black dude fighting to the death because that kind of thing happens all the time and never makes the news for more than a few seconds. Despite the pioneering work of the Sheen family and Christina Aguilera . . . Most people still don't realize that Latinos come in all shapes, sizes, colors and names other than maid and gardener.
But I digress . . .
This post leads our morning because yesterday we leaned a bit left and now we right the ship that is TKC and realize a reality is that Midwest Flyover Country is making a hard push back against the Black Lives Matter movement . . . Meanwhile, many contend that new Missouri gun laws are part of a trend that will put more African-American men in harm's way.
You decide . . .
