South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called out the Black Lives Matter movement for its role in perpetuating violence in the riot-racked cities of Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore — and hurting the very black people it claims to care about.
“Most of the people who now live in terror because local police are too intimidated to do their jobs are black,” Haley said at a Washington luncheon.

The Republican governor referred to the violence in New York, Ferguson and Baltimore after the cities were rocked by separate police-involved deaths of black males.
“In all three of those cases, there was civil unrest at truly awful levels. The riots in Ferguson and Baltimore were senseless. You know what? Black lives do matter,” Haley said.
“Most of the people killed or injured in the riots in Ferguson and Baltimore were black. Think about it. Most of the small business or social service institutions that were destroyed and looted in Ferguson and Baltimore were either black-owned, or served heavily black populations.
“Black lives do matter and they have been disgracefully jeopardized by the movement that has laid waste to Ferguson and Baltimore.”
The citizens of South Carolina responded in stark contrast to Ferguson and Baltimore after a deranged maniac killed nine innocent worshipers in a historic black Charleston church in June. Both black and white supporters united in the Southern streets to condemn the racist attack that evoked an enormous amount of pain and bloodshed.
“In South Carolina we did things differently,” Haley said.
Indeed they did.
