It is sad that Black Lives Matter has made such a point of honoring George Floyd. He is a human being and should not have been killed by the police. However, he was a convicted felon for a violent crime, in addition of being a drug user, a poor father, and generally a failure in life. He was being arrested for committing a crime while being high on drugs. He was a drag on the US economy and a bad example of the human race.
The fact that he is being held up to such esteem by the black race indicates what a terrible state the black race is in. There are many wonderful black individuals, but the black race looks pretty awful. Africa is a failed continent, populated by the black race. Why haven’t blacks made something of Africa. Latin America is dark or brown because of the black intermarriage, and it too is a failed continent compared to the Northern Hemisphere. Is the Southern Hemisphere failing because if is Southern, or because it is mainly populated by black and brown people?
Black and brown people need good models for their race like Colin Powell, not failed criminals like George Floyd. The fact that they honor George Floyd shows how violent, how uncivilized, how uneducated their race is. They blame it on white oppression, but slavery ended 150 years ago. Many blacks left the segregated South, but still failed to succeed in the northern US, turning cities like Detroit into spreading slums. I would like to see an example of a failing city with a majority white population that improved itself as black people moved in and made it a better city. I would like to see one; most examples are the opposite – nice cities that ran down as more black people moved in.
When I was at the American Embassy in Warsaw, Poland, I went down to Silesia to survey the coal mines there and to see what their environmental impact was. The Pole who was escorting me made a point of taking me to an apartment house lived in by coal miners. He wanted me to see how neat and clean they were at home, despite their dirty occupation. This is the kind of example the blacks need. I’m sure such an example exists, but I don’t know of it. Blacks should publicize it, instead of praising a criminal like George Floyd.
