The murder of Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina, was in stark contrast with the high-profile incidents involving young black men who were killed in Sanford, Florida, by a Hispanic man who was on neighborhood watch duty and in Ferguson, Missouri, by a white police officer.
In both of these instances, the young black men initiated the confrontation and attacked aggressively. The public response to these incidents was egregious. Blacks organized massive protests promoting the false narrative that both men were innocent victims. This promoted widespread social unrest which led to physical injury, property damage and disruption of many small business owners' livelihoods.
Even after thorough investigations exonerated both shooters, the protests continued. Their supporters in the media, sports, among celebrities and government officials failed to believe justice had been served. No protesters were ever officially charged for their unlawful behavior except for one shooter of two policemen in Ferguson and, so far, no apologies have been forthcoming for the ensuing senseless collateral damage.
Until blacks and their present supporters begin taking responsibility for the criminal behavior in the black community, no meaningful discussion of race relations is going to be possible.
