Black journalist shuts up NBC panel: Let’s not pretend cops killing blacks is the problem

Wall Street Journal editorial board member Jason Riley upset the NBC liberals’ applecart by chronicling facts which refuted their mythic narrative of bullying white cops harassing innocent black youths.

Speaking on “Meet the Press,” Sunday, Riley told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell and leftist Jane Harman that if the offending officer in Ferguson, Missouri used excessive force then he should be prosecuted, but “Let’s not pretend our morgues and cemeteries are full of young black men because cops are shooting them. The reality is that it’s because other black people are shooting them, and we need to talk about black criminality.”

The author of “Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed,” went on. “Blacks are only 13 percent of the population, but they’re 50 percent of homicide victims in this country, and 90 percent of these victims are killed by other black people.”

Mitchell interjected that blacks were also the victims of the Missouri looting.

“At the same time, at the same weekend that this went down in Ferguson,” continued Riley, “we had 26 shootings in Chicago, but Al Sharpton didn’t head to Chicago. He headed to St. Louis because he has an entirely different agenda, which is to continue to blame whites.”

Harman and Mitchell then proceeded to interrupt Riley so that he could not articulate another sentence, until Mitchell could change the topic.
