I had a question for the NBA players and their supporters who were beating their chests today about their bravery due to their boycott of the season over what happened in Kenosha. Or I should say I HAD a question before they decided to suddenly reverse course and play.
Take a look at the names below:
Brandi Lorraine Parham
Alan Charles Snipes
Antonio Demetric Brown
Austin Edward Belisle
Semaj Brunassio Miller
Akeem Jamaal Coburn
Dominic Ladon Gooden
These people share something in common:
All were murdered in the last 30 days
All were black
All were killed in Cities Democrats have controlled for decades, namely Chicago, Baltimore and LA
NONE of their murders generated national protests, riots or commentary in the national media and they certainly weren’t important enough to get the attention of NBA players
I’d like the LA Clippers and the LA Lakers players to take particular note of this last batch of names in bold because all of those black people were murdered in LA. Cripes Semaj Miller was only 14 years old!
I submit and suggest that the reason why none of these black lives mattered enough for a group of men who make between six and eight figure to bounce and throw a round ball up and down a court is that none of these black men, women or children were murdered in circumstances that involved police and thus could not be turned into a platform for virtue signaling or attacks on the United States as a racist country or as a political tool to advance a specific agenda.
This is of course in complete agreement with DaTechGuy’s 3rd Law of Media Outrage that states:
The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.
Now if any NBA player wishes to offer an alternative reason why none of these murders of black men, women and children over the last 30 days in three major cities were worthy of protest feel free to leave said explanation in comments. Since the NHL and other sports decided to give today a pass they can jump in too if they want.
