When Ta-Nehisi Coates and Yona Harvey’s Black Panther & The Crew launched earlier this year, it proved that big publishers like Marvel can, in fact, still tell timely stories about real world issues, like how police brutality devastates black communities.Police brutality devastates black communities? Really?
verb (used with object), devastated, devastating.. Police brutality is "overwhelming" black communities? Police brutality is laying waste to black communities? What kind of alternate reality does one have to live in to even think this to be the case, when overwhelming evidence to the contrary exists? Does Gizmodo think that the spike in murders in Baltimore are the doing of police?
1. to lay waste; render desolate:
The invaders devastated the city.
Synonyms: destroy, sack, despoil, raze, ruin, level.
Antonyms: create, erect, develop.
2. to overwhelm.
Through the first four months of 2017, Baltimore has experienced its highest murder rate in recorded history — and now federal officials are sending in some help... There have been 108 homicides so far this year; last weekend saw five people killed. The only year that saw more homicides at this point in the year was 1993, when 110 people had been killed through the end of April. The city went on to record 353 homicides that year, the most in the city's history.So who exactly is "devastating' black communities? What about Chicago? Check this comment:
Chicago’s murder rate is high, and it has risen significantly in the last two years. But the recent rate of killings is not unprecedented: During the mid-1990s, Chicago experienced a higher toll of murders than it did in 2016.Oh, it's bad, but not THAT bad. It's been worse so lets break out the bubbly and mock Donald Trump. I mean really, it takes either a special kind of stupid to say that it is the POLICE who are causing "devastating" problems in black communities, or it takes a well planned organizational push to continuously put out fake news "on behalf of" black people. So how many more black people have to be killed by liberal policy makers and the media before we, well the rest of us, wake up to the big BLM con?
