Clarence McKee: People Only Upset When Blacks Killed by Whites

By    |   Wednesday, 10 June 2015 06:36 PM

Political commentator Clarence McKee says that there is an inconsistency in the "black lives matter" campaign because blacks only seem to care if blacks are killed by white cops.

"The fallacy of this, is this, if you're black and killed by a black, nobody seems to care. If you're killed by a white person, the whole world goes bananas," McKee told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV Wednesday.

"Now, let's assume that if 40 white people had been shot in the inner harbor of Baltimore over Memorial Day weekend or if 900 had been shot in the Loop in Chicago or 100 shot or killed in South Beach, my gosh. All hell would have broken loose," he explained.

"You would have Martial Law, you would have policemen on every corner. But when it's blacks, only when a black is shot by a white cop people get upset," McKee said.

"If these were white people getting killed, you would have demands and protests for recalls, you would have city council meetings and town meetings, but this doesn't seem to happen when our own folks get killed by us," he added.

McKee wrote about this issue in his latest column for Newsmax, "Black Lives Matter — If Taken by Whites."

Urban communities contributor Raymond Kelly, who works with the No Boundaries Coalition in Baltimore and joined the "MidPoint" host says that he agrees with McKee.

"If it happened to two white people in Baltimore City, there would be police coming from every angle whereas in West Baltimore, in Baltimore City in the black neighborhoods, 43 murders in a month, and we still don't have a recognizable police presence," Kelly said.

McKee says that one of problems is the "same liberal failed policies" in urban cities around the country such as "the labor unions [which] make sure that the schools cannot be put into charter schools."

In addition, "we do not have accountability, the black politicians don't seem to respect their own constituents," he added.

Kelly says that "there also has to be a movement by us in the black communities that we have to actually step up and show these politicians that we have political power."
