Whose “Black Lives Matter” To You?
Whether we choose to believe it or not, Black Americans have historically held Conservative views. So, when we consider the intentional taking of a human life by way of abortion, why aren’t these same Black Conservative views angered with the genocide that has taken the lives of a future Fredrick Douglas, Harriet Tubman, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., or Justice Clarence Thomas?
The answer is simple. Black America continues to be entangled in the web of the “War on Poverty” programs implemented in 1964 by President Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ). Not only did these programs condition Black America to develop a “victim” mentality, but they also allowed LBJ to masterfully cement in history Black America’s dependency on the government.
The effects of LBJ’s entitlement programs have resulted in the destruction of the Black nuclear family. In 2020, only 30% of Black Americans were married, which should come as no surprise why Black women accounted for the highest percentages of abortions during this same year (39.2%), and historically. This is quite tragic when we consider that Black women are less than 14% of the U.S. population. Whose “Black Lives Matter” to you?
