The number of black Americans murdered has jumped by 32 per cent, with experts blaming the rise on cops not patrolling high crime areas thanks to Black Lives Matter-endorsed “defund the police” activism.

“The number of black Americans murdered in 2020 jumped by 32 percent – with an expert blaming BLM protests for the huge spike by scaring-off cops,” reports the Daily Mail.
“Killings across (every) racial demographic have swelled by 30 percent between 2019 and 2020, the largest increase since 1905, but blacks have borne the larger impact of that deadly trend, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime report.”
The phenomenon has become a common trend and first came to prominence in the aftermath of the 2014 Ferguson riots, which is why it is known as ‘the Ferguson effect’.
Hannah Meyer, from think-tank the Manhattan Institute, says “defund the police” movements supported by BLM have worsened the murder rate.
“Certainly, the protests and riots mid-2020 followed a pattern of spiking violence that we’ve seen following past viral police incidents, such as the deaths of Michael Brown and Freddie Gray,” Meyer told Fox News. “This pattern has been termed the ‘Ferguson Effect’: police pull back while violent crime spikes precipitously.”
According to FBI statistics, African-Americans accounted for 55.9% of all homicide offenders in 2019, despite representing only 13 per cent of the population. The overwhelming majority of murdered black people are killed by other blacks.
“The blood is on the hands not only of Black Lives Matter, but of the liberal establishment for promoting its sociopathic agenda,” writes Dave Blount.
“Having largely caused this crisis, liberals want to address it by disarming law-abiding citizens, leaving them defenseless in the face of emboldened criminals who will of course remain armed.”
While Black Lives Matter may have served the opposite purpose to its stated mission of protecting black lives, its founders haven’t done badly for themselves.
As we previously highlighted, BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors chose to live in one of the whitest areas of California after purchasing a $1.4 million dollar home in an area that has a black population of just 1.6 per cent.
Allies and critics have questioned where the money has gone, queries that intensified after it was revealed that BLM leaders secretly bought a $6 million dollar mansion in a way meant to blur the lines “between the charity and private companies owned by some of its leaders.”
All of this once again underscores how BLM is just one huge grift, while the impact of its activism only serves to put more black people in danger while deepening division in society.

Martin comments: Useful Idiocy In Action. One is inclined to feel a certain amount of sympathy for the Socialist Movement and their naive idealism. Lack of real world experience and wisdom coupled with an educational background that actively encourages self-defeating and destructive initiatives like BLM and the Climate Change cult, coupled with propaganda aimed at manipulating malleable leaders into powerful positions, has left these guys wide open for exploitation by forces intent on demolishing Western society from within. Right now, to the consternation of those who participated unwittingly in their own destruction, it appears everything they’ve aimed for is achieving the opposite. Precisely as was intended by those who used them. “Sorry guys we tried to warn you” is all I can say.
