Project 21’s Joe Hicks Puts Black Lives Matter Under the Heat Lamp

Project 21’s Joe R. Hicks has been quoted extensively on TV and radio in recent days. Here’s an example of an appearance that got a lot of attention – Joe on the Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File on July 11.

“Last week — last week, three people were walking out a liquor store in San Bernardino — people are familiar with San Bernardino because that’s where the massacre took place. Two black men and a 9-year- old boy walking out of a liquor store mowed down by a black suspect. Where was Black Lives Matter? Did you guys mobilize in San Bernardino?”

Joe tells us there’s no end in sight for this nation’s war on police officers, thanks to “a nearly endless number of black men… [with] victimization fantasies.”

“Enough with the false claims of the race-obsessed protesters,” Joe says. “It is past the time for truth telling about who the real racists are in this society, and this starts by putting the Black Lives Matter activists under the heat lamp.”

Here are Joe’s comments at greater length:

This weekend America awoke to three more dead police officers, the latest in the nation’s war on cops – a war with no real end in sight. There is no end in sight because there is a nearly endless number of black men residing this nation’s black communities who have similar victimization fantasies as Micah Xavier Johnson did, the Dallas cop-killer, or Gavin Eugene Long, a black man who traveled all the way from Kansas City, Missouri, to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, just to kill as many cops as he could. Like ISIS has inspiring lone-wolf mass killers worldwide, has the Black Lives matter Movement similarly inspired the horrific acts of these black cop-killers? It has also been less than helpful that the nation’s president has identified with leftist black street activists and lectured about the rage felt among blacks regarding police in America being justified. Obama has conveniently ignored the fact that both of the recent cop-killers harbored vicious anti-white, ant-police beliefs that has become a demented component of black urban activist culture. This festering culture of dysfunction has been primarily informed by the virulent hateful ideology of the so-called “Black Lives Matter” protesters.JoeHicksBlackLivesMatterKellyFile071116C…This dysfunctional rage has been brewing since Treyvon Martin in Florida, Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland. “Black Lives Matter” has been the chant of leftists all across America. Yet, black-on-black murder rates have skyrocketed across the nation. Milwaukee’s murder rate was up 76% between 2014 and 2015, and similar increases were seen in Saint Louis, Baltimore, Chicago and Washington D.C. Seemingly, black lives only matter when a black person is shot by a police officer – most often a cop doing his duty. Also ignored is available data that informs us that blacks commit homicide eight times the rate of whites or Hispanics combined, and overall, more than half of the nation’s homicide victims are black, though blacks make up only 13% of the population.

According to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, 69% of Americans say they race relations is at an all-time low since the 1992 Los Angeles riots. For too long, Americans have submitted themselves to vulgar, ignorant insults coming from activists marching through our cities chanting about imagined American racism and racist cops. Enough with the false claims of the race-obsessed protesters. It is past the time for truth telling about who the real racists are in this society, and this starts by putting the Black Lives Matter activists under the heat lamp.
