Belafonte Blames Black Crime On “White Americans”

Harry Belefonte SC Belafonte blames black crime on White Americans

There is never a shortage of far-left garbage flowing from the lips of Harry Belafonte as he struggles to remain relevant six decades after first releasing the calypso music that made him famous.

The man once called George W. Bush “the greatest terrorist in the world” immediately before telling Venezuela’s Communist dictator Hugo Chavez he is among “millions of the American people” who “support your revolution.”

Belafonte is one of the rare humans capable of making Chris Matthews seem moderate by comparison.

His latest bout of verbal ignorance came when he weighed in on the ongoing gun debate. As he accepted an award at the NAACP Image Awards, he contended the “group most devastated by America’s obsession with the gun is African Americans.”

I strongly disagree with his assertion that Americans are obsessed with guns. The left certainly is, insofar as they are obsessed with taking them away; but conservatives are only obsessed with freedom and the individual liberty afforded in the Bill of Rights.

He does make a fairly reasonable point that blacks are disproportionately affected by gun violence, but that is precisely where his logic breaks down.

“The river of blood that washes the streets of our nation flows mostly from the bodies of our black children,” he stated. “Yet, as the great debate emerges on the question of the gun, white America discusses the constitutional issue of ownership while no one speaks of the consequences of our racial carnage.”

Laying the blame at the feet of the white man is certainly expedient, given his audience at the time, but completely belies the actual cause of such violence.

Using statistics from Chicago, a hotbed of gun violence and leftist stronghold of restrictive gun ownership laws, one can see that three-fourths of all murder victims were black between the years of 2003 and 2011. During that same time period, blacks were also the offenders in the same percentage of murder cases.

It has become boilerplate among leftist adherents to blame any societal ill befalling a minority on the oppression of the majority. Unfortunately, until these race-baiters choose to deal with the problems that actually exist – i.e. black-on-black crime – instead of conveniently targeting imagined institutionalized racism, we can never truly address appropriate remedies.

Many instigators in the progressive movement, though, have no desire to actually deal with the problem in any meaningful way. Maintaining the minority population’s distrust of the racist bogeymen around every corner only serves to keep them loyal to the Democrat Party.

    OFCOURSE WHITES ARE TO BLAIM, BLACKS ARE BELIVERS IN OTHERS RIGHTS AND ARE ALL DESENT ONLY WHITES WITH THEIR EVIL DOING. ARE AT FAULT BLACK RICH CAN'T BE BLAIMED. THEY ARE OUT OF THE GETTO, SO THEY HAVE NO FAULT.
    WHEN ARE THE BLACK LEADERS GOING TO TAKE RESPONSEBILITY? AND ADMIT THEY CAN'T AND WONT HELP OTHER BLACKS, THE WHITES ARE TO BLAIM FOR EVERY THING.
    NO BLACK PERSON HAS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS. THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO SUPPORT THEM, ARE YOU KITTING? THIS IS THE WAY DEMOCRATS SAY ALL BLACKS MUST NOT BE BLAIMED. THEREPUBLICANS ARE AT FAULT, COMMUNIST HAVE ALWAY DONE RIGHT BY THEIR SUBJECTS. AND BLACKS MUST BE FURNISHED STRONGER AND MORE ILLEGAL DRUGS.

  5. It's getting old, black people and it's all baloney. Everyone is equal in today's America with multitudinous opportunity. You actually get the special treatment nowadays. The whole world still desires to immigrate here. Get a life and begin lifting yourselves out of your supposed misery.

  8. Well the Lowlife Scumbags have to blame something or someone for there constant failure in life so ole Harry Dude Belafonte Blames The White Man…. What About Their Own Kind Selling And Keeping Their Ignorant Asses To The Mill….Ohhhh Poooor Meeee I'm Blacccck…..feed Me Doctor Me Take Care Of Me give me a house give me money….Makes Me Sick….gotta Go Barf Now!!!!!

  9. Why is there so much more crime today than in the forties and fifties? There are several reasons.

    1 Taking God out of everything.
    2. Women having children before marriage.
    3 No father in many homes.
    4 Giving so much welfare it doesn't pay to work.
    5 Not teaching young people a trade when it is obvious they are not college,
    or even high school graduate material.
    6 Being soft on crime.
    7 Making excuses for poor behavior.
    8 Public servants setting a poor example by cheating, lying, stealing, adultery
    not protecting our constitution, our flag, and the will of the people, who are their
    employees.
    We will never be the country we have always been until we rid the senate and congress of
    people who listen to ONE, and not the will of the American people. It may be too late already.

  10. I am certain that the "illegal alien" will be forced to leave the United States of America VERRRY soon! We, The People will not tolerate his communist appointments–allowing them to run freely through the United States to cause havoc and anti-Americanism, or outright non-compliance with our laws (while they are under the "alien's" (false) authority in the White House)! We, the People do not have a POTUS, We have anarchy and destruction of the American ideal. But what We DO have is this: the will to win, intelligence to accomplish the mission (to eliminate the non-Americans from our shores), and put our country back to being the United States Of America, home of the BRAVE., and LAND of the Free!

      Eddy I can only hope your right but although most americans see what this illegal alien is doing to our once great country there isn'tmuch we can do.The black Santa is promising that the government will rob the rich to give to the lazy people who want to live off the backs of the working class.What these ignorant people don't realize is after the rich become poor then Santa will turn on them.This coon realized that companies would pay a fine rather then provide insurance so people will go to a government funded insurance just how the evil regime planned it.
