More than a year ago we published Jim Simpson’s masterful report, “Black Criminals, White Victims, and White Guilt.” He examined the facts about black-on-white crime.
What’s more, Simpson singled out commentators like CNN’s Marc Lamont Hill, a racial agitator fired by Fox News for defending cop-killers, and spreading misleading statistics about police shootings.
Hill idolizes Assata Shakur, a former Black Panther and member of the Black Liberation Army, who killed New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster by shooting him in the head. She escaped from prison with the help of the Weather Underground and now lives in Cuba.
Incredibly, in addition to getting paid by CNN, Hill is a Morehouse College Distinguished Professor of African-American Studies. His new book is titled Nobody: Casualties of America’s War on the Vulnerable, from Ferguson to Flint and Beyond.
The “war on the vulnerable” implies that “the man,” aka the white power structure, is behind problems in the black community.
This is how blacks are advised to shift the blame for their own bad behavior to America.
During one of his many appearances on CNN, Hill claimed that black criminal predators were motivated to steal, rape and kill other people because of lead in paint and lead in gasoline. He got this information from Mother Jones magazine, which failed to show proof that excessive lead causes crime of any kind. Lead can cause headaches, memory problems, muscle and joint pain, abdominal pain, cramping and vomiting, but not crime.
CNN calls Hill “one of the leading intellectual voices in the country.” An online publication called the Afro goes further, saying he is “one of the most dynamic Black intellectuals of the 21st century.”
No wonder the black community is in trouble.
The major media outlets, which regularly censor news of black-on-white crime, faced a problem in the coverage of the black criminal killing the white nuns. They had to use the perpetrator’s photo. It was the only one they had. It was furnished by the Mississippi Department of Public Safety.
Now the public knows.
