Carly Fiorina: Black Lives Don’t Matter to Liberals

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina appeared on “The Kelly File” Monday night and reacted to the unrest in Ferguson following the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death.
She took a direct and accurate aim at Democrats over the Ferguson protests that have been fueled by the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
From TheBlaze:
The former Hewlett Packard CEO appeared on Fox News and responded to some of the most recent demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, marking the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death. Referring to the movement that spread in the wake of Brown’s death and the deaths of other black men at the hands of police officers, Kelly asked Fiorina if “black lives matter” or if “all lives matter.”

First of all, of course all lives matter,” Fiorina responded. “Secondly, black lives have been diminished under Democratic policies. That’s just true.”
Fiorina, who was widely seen as one of the big winners to emerge from Thursday’s first GOP primary debate, suggested that protesters in Ferguson should look to those in Charleston, South Carolina, as it seeks to heal its racial wounds caused by years of built-up tensions.
“Remember as well, the example of South Carolina, a very different situation – where not only did a cop murder, he is now being charged with murder of a young black man – but we also had the terrible [church shooting] tragedy in Charleston and yet that community came together and expressed grievances in a peaceful way, even in a loving way and found a resolution,” she said.
Fiorina added that President Barack Obama’s policies have made conditions worse for families already living in poverty and have hurt educational opportunities for the same people, and pointed out the disparity in the abortion rate for black women versus white women.
“We also know, by the way, that the abortion industry targets African-American communities,” Fiorina said.

It’s about time someone speaks out against the false narrative the mainstream media has portrayed the “Black Lives Matter” movement as.
Fiorina agrees that black lives matter, because they obviously do. But she then quickly and clearly points out that they ironically don’t really seem to matter much to liberals.
Black lives only matter when it involves a white person or the police, and it especially matters when it involves a white police officer and a black citizen.

Black lives don’t matter when it’s black on black crime, which happens much more frequently than white on black crime does.
The National Review reported that a “white” homicide victim is over twice as likely to be killed by a black than a black homicide victim is to be killed by a “white,” according to 2012 supplemental homicide data the FBI released in 2014.
But we’d be hypocritically called racist if we start chanting “White Lives Matter.”
It is completely true that Democratic policies have done nothing but keep minorities in poverty in exchange for votes. Thankfully, we have one presidential candidate that isn’t afraid to call them out on it.
