"black lives matter"

I was so happy to see old Bill Clinton's response to the protesters yesterday. I've been hoping someone would set these yo-yos straight. If "black lives matter" the statistical reality needs to "matter", most black lives that are lost to violence are taken by blacks!!! It's about time someone said it publicly.
In the '90s I lived in New Orleans, around '97 I was working on a project in the business district. Needed to walk a few blocks to get from the parking to the building and couldn't get from point A to B without someone asking for $, a smoke or asking if I wanted to buy drugs. After a young lawyer working in the area was carjacked and murdered I decided to start carrying my NAA mini pistol. As I was a bit concerned about the legal aspect of doing that I spoke with a lawyer I knew. He explained I had every right to carry but said "the safest thing you can be here is a white guy". That year of the 400 or so murders that happened in the "BIG EASY" it was along the lines of 370 out of the 400 were black on black and under 30 years old!!! That has always stuck in my head.
...those protesters may need to reconsider where they're protesting, It was nice to see Bill tell them as much :-)

Good for Bill. Hopefully it will damage his wife's campaign.

Damn... Why can't any politician say something and stick with it. After every statement is made it is followed by damage control apologes

I wonder what they HONESTLY believe and not what they think we the people want to hear...

Wait a minute. I thought the group was called "black lies matter". Now I find out it's really "black lives matter". I learned something new today.

Just a group of paid complainers and sheep like Occupy Wall Street.

I'm not surprised to see Monica Lewinsky's boyfriend apologize. Since Bernie has beat Monica Lewinsky's boyfriend's wife in most states lately, i'm guessing she doesn't want to upset her last faithful constituency.

Well, this is not a universal policy. Like they say, conditions and specifications may vary in your area.

For example, you can get yourself into a world of hurt for shooting a black felon in Ferguson.

But in some areas of Chicago, Illinois, you can kill 600 black men per year and no one seems to care.

Check your local laws, YMMV.
