Why I don’t identify with Black Lives Matter

Jay FayzaRebel Columnist
 

Black Lives Matter is an international movement focused on systematic racism, even though there is no law, no court case, and not a shred of evidence justifying their existence.

We can have a conversation about the militarization of the police, the practice of carding, and police misconduct, in general.

But is there a nationwide conspiracy, an effort to victimize and single-out African-Americans? No.

The reality is that violent crime in the African-American community is the problem.

In the last 35 years, 345,000 blacks were killed by other blacks in America.

Another common justification for BLM’s existence is the rate of unarmed deaths by police.

The argument goes: Unarmed blacks are disproportionately killed. In their mind, “unarmed” means (a) they could have been restrained without using deadly force, or (b) they were innocent.

The term “unarmed,” though, just means you don’t have a gun.

It doesn’t mean they’re innocent. It doesn’t mean cops could have restrained them without using deadly force. 

Maybe the perpetrator was using another type of weapon. I'll give you some real life examples...

Black Lives Matter creates social unrest and resentment.

We’ve seen it explode in America but, trust me, this ideology is encroaching on other countries, even countries with very low crimes rates and, thus, very low rates of police brutality like Canada.

Sadly, thanks to billionaire donors like George Soros and giant political supporters like Hillary Clinton, it’s probably not going away time soon.

Still, we must intellectually fight it.

If we don’t, well, there goes our once great civilization.

I applaud this fellow who speaks his mind without fear, speak loudly my friend it goes much deeper than one issue, before we know it we will find it is too late, and that day is fast arriving so speak out my fellow Canadians.

Enjoyed your first video Jay! Good for you for having the courage to speak your mind. It is encouraging to us who have been around for a while to hear a young person speak common sense. I look forward to your future contributions.

Jay is great addition to the Rebel. He deals with facts and not emotion as do most leftists.
commented 2016-11-05 23:06:09 -0400
How is it not being supportive to refuse to buy into a false narrative created by race baiters? I rather doubt any black person is helped being kept in victimhood. There are problems, some responsibility must be taken. I would say Jay is recognising that. Why is someone who has risen above victimhood immediately branded a traitor of his people? How about recognising the example of a perspective which involves some personal empowerment. Life is volitional.
BLM causes fires where the tinder is dry. They exist for one reason only to keep blacks down to be their useful idiots. They do nothing positive, nothing. They exist to cause civil strife and then use it as an excuse to dismantle law and order. BLM is an arm of of the Marxist war against civil society. Ignoring the facts helps no one. Ignoring the stats helps no one.

First of all, Mr Fayza, I think you are totally nuts. You are the equivalent of a Jewish person denying the Holocaust. I had a good friend in high school who was a combination of Black, White and Jewish. Her Jewish father once told me “You should support your own people, no matter how weak you think they are.” You should NOT recite a list of so-called facts and stats criticizing your own people. And, what the hell do you know about what it is like to be born and raised in a poor neighborhood in the US?
commented 2016-11-05 14:02:11 -0400
I am fairly certain that Mr. Fayza is is about to get the living SH#T kicked out of him for this video.
On social media only I hope. I’ve been on “Ride alongs” (Montreal Police civic engagement) and
I couldn’t believe the abuse cops shrug off from dirtbags! I’m an army veteran that’s been shot at and dealt with ethnic hatred and islamic terrorism. Before you judge a cop who doesn’t wear body armour and doesn’t have an armoured vehicle with an a 25mm autocannon right behind him and a flying tank hovering above him, don’t judge the rookie cop dealing with an ms13 sicario or some scar-bro crip with an ak47 . They aren’t trained for urban combat. The left will see to it that they need to!

probably because he doesn’t listen to and want to belong to the victim of the month club. Probably also looks at the facts and bases HIS OWN DECISION ON THE THE FACTS. I work with some blacks in the oil sands and none of them scream I am a victim, they work hard pay taxes and contribute, and above all THEY DONT WHINE AND BITCH. They are normal hard working Canadians. People respect them and they respect the others they work with.
commented 2016-11-05 02:43:45 -0400
Wow – refreshing to see this presentation from a person of colour. This gentleman’s addition to the team is a fine development and the best possible argument for common sense being a trait that all responsible people can share. Thank you, Jay, for your perspective.
commented 2016-11-04 22:15:22 -0400
Based on this short video, Jay seems like a good addition to The Rebel. Another aspect of BLM is that they would rather people go out and kill cops or society does away with law enforcement, rather than working toward a constructive solution to anything.
commented 2016-11-04 19:47:59 -0400
BLM is like O.C.A.P. … an anarchist group.
commented 2016-11-04 18:59:50 -0400
Rosa,
Justin Trudeau I suppose? Will he make us all like John McCallum or more like Chrystia Freeland?
I think the TelleTubbies had something to do with this transformation. Between them and My Little Pony I think that our society has become slaves to the Liberal hordes.

But seriously, when you come down from your trip, repost. We’d all like to know what the heck you are talking about.
commented 2016-11-04 18:15:41 -0400
we are approaching the reign of the Anti-Christ or as many nations call him MAYTRAIA. the son of satan who will pretend to be Jesus Christ himself .This abomination son of a Hebrew Harlot and a Bishop is here to destroy humanity .His hate for God’s Children is unlivable,He will pretend to love everyone but behind close doors he will laugh at you .his plan along with the NWO it is to kill every human on this planet except for 500 million who are to be their slaves through shortages of food . chemical spraying through the clouds including aluminun which will complete destroy your mind, vaccinations, pesticides and many other ailments .And will force everyone both rich and poor young and old to accept the Mark of the Beast (CHIP) without it you cannot buy nor sale but anyone accepting this chip can forget about Heaven because from then on you are satan slave and your destiny is Hell where you will live for all eternity with satan as your Lord.

I’m so happy to see someone with intelligence post on here. The left certainly can’t say you are an extreme right wing christian who they think are all white. This will destroy their view of the left wing world of perpetual doom and victimhood so they shouldn’t show up on this thread. If they do they’ll immediately as others said, label you the “uncle tom”. You seem to have enough intelligence to brush this off like water off a duck. That’s what we need more in this world. BLM advocating for criminals just because they are black and hence, the perpetual victims of European slave trade is so full of shit they have little credibility with anyone with half a brain. Unfortunately lefties don’t have half a brain. They like to fry it with too many substances or are just plain dumb.

The kid is good, he’ll get more comfortable the more he does it, good acquisition .

Welcome Jay. You are a wonderful new contributor to the Rebel. Thank you for standing up.
commented 2016-11-04 15:02:41 -0400
Welcome, Jay – I enjoyed your video. You simply presented the facts not hype. As someone commented – I too, wonder how long before you are labeled as an “Uncle Tom?” Stand your ground. Your views are really needed. I think, you may have a long career with multi-media. :O)
commented 2016-11-04 14:27:15 -0400
Jay,
Great dose of reality. It’s about damn time. Really enjoyed listening to you at the Jordan Petersen rally by the way. Looking forward to more. Of all the people for the Rebel to bring on board … awesome.
commented 2016-11-04 14:09:10 -0400
GLENN CRAIG;
The video you provided, “A Nigga Moment”, was hilarious, and I especially loved that line, “Wait a minute, I’m a White man.” LOL
…and you will likely be condemned to liberal hell for eternity for posting that little nugget of cartoon truth…
commented 2016-11-04 12:09:10 -0400
Good job Jay, looking forward to hearing more from you.
commented 2016-11-04 12:03:13 -0400
I admit to feeling a little unnerved after watching and listening to that short treatise full of intelligence and reason – unnerved because of the black man speaking it…not because blacks represent merely 2.5 % of the Canadian population, or 0 % of the population where I live in the Chilcotin…
I am not saying there are no intelligent and reasonable black people, but with this race-baiting of Obama and fellow travelers in the MSM and BLM scam having had such a profound effect in causing people to take very polar-opposite sides on the blacks vs whites problem, not to mention the yoked teammates of BLM scamsters, all the lefty liberal whites full of white guilt and privilege, helping to drive this huge divide…the huge divide being the desired effect…
I wonder when Mr. Fayza will get the first ‘Uncle Tom’ hurled at him in anger?
commented 2016-11-04 03:29:51 -0400
…or told to check our white privilege!
commented 2016-11-04 01:28:32 -0400
Nice to have a reasoned review of the facts rather than the emotional response to an emotional issue. The statistics are more tilted than I thought. I hope we can find a way to assist in reducing the violence in the USs black community, but as a white guy I think I’ll just be accused of racism for saying anything about it.
commented 2016-11-04 01:08:23 -0400
Welcome Jay! Good Job young man!!

Damn…..Sometimes the truth hurts
commented 2016-11-03 20:02:37 -0400
The formation of BLM by the Soros org has 2 purposes -

1) is to create social instability through escalating racial tensions to justify federal control of local police

2) the more long term goal is reinstalling a racially structured state controlled by the left.

subversive leftists like Soros are pursuing a “new, improved” racial state in the West, – under a motive of revenge. As insane as that sounds, that truly is the left’s vision. A new racial state is needed, because—the reasoning goes—“people of color” are owed revenge for the distorted historical slights sold by leftist revisionism. Today’s racial state is a hip thing because it’s positive racism, racism as a virtue, “Racism for the Cure” to all that ails nonwhites. It’s genuinely frightening how dedicated leftists are to their insane vision of a racially tiered West.
commented 2016-11-03 19:54:07 -0400
What your comment is Charles, is a huge generalization. In western society Blacks have lived peacefully and prospered. There have been some problems that had more to do with a broken family unit, education and poverty, but until Obama got in, things were looking up. He has done major damage to race relations with his race baiting antics. I am hoping Ben Carson can advise Trump regarding setting things right again. I think Carson has a lot of useful ideas. BLM needs to be stripped of the status its gaining. It hurts not helps marginalized blacks everywhere.

Black Supremacy? I think you mean black anarchy.
Each and every black country is a 3rd world cesspool of violence. From Africa, to the Caribbean and everywhere in between, blacks have demonstrated their inability to create a peaceful and prosperous society. This isn’t racism, it’s fact.
commented 2016-11-03 13:01:28 -0400
Black supremacy in its infancy.
commented 2016-11-03 12:23:13 -0400
BLM race baiting is a tactic used by Marxist puppet masters to destroy the very fabric of our free society in order to rebuild a totalitarian one. Black people are being used and abused by the instigators of the BLM movement .

Good report Jay Fayza. When I first saw and heard you speak at that rally covered by Lauren, I thought to myself, now there is an intelligent young man speaking logic and truth, and we could use that voice on the Rebel. Hope to see you here as a regular. Well done.
