Do black lives really matter? Glenn reads the stunning list of black people murdered in Chicago being ignored by activists and protesters

On the O’Reilly Factor last night, guest Tavis Smiley claimed “there is no respect for black life in this country,” in a rant against the grand jury decision in New York this week.

Glenn isn’t necessarily a fan of the decision, but he’s even less a fan of the narrative.

Are white cops the biggest threat to black people today?

The statistics and tragically long list of names of black people murdered in Chicago within the last few months tell a different story.

By the way, that’s — that’s those who were killed in the month of November. Would you like me to give you the names —

PAT: I didn’t hear Tavis mention any of them.

GLENN: Would you like me to give you the names for September because black lives matter?
There is no respect for black life in America anymore. You’re right. And there’s a growing condition that we don’t respect any life anymore. In fact, we celebrate people who say, life is just too hard. I’m going to take my own life. We celebrate — we pay for people to take the lives of their babies because it’s just going to be too hard to raise that baby. I want to live my life.
Black lives don’t matter? No life matters anymore. But if you want to talk about black life, let’s talk about — let’s talk about how many white people have killed black people? How many black people have killed white people?

STU: And this is not, you know, to say that black people are bad. What it does say, is that there’s not an epidemic of white people killing black people. 448 — this is 2011 according to the FBI, 448 whites were killed by blacks.
Approximate 193 blacks were killed by whites. That is 2.3 times more whites killed by blacks than the other way around despite the fact that there’s six times as many whites in this country.

GLENN: Can we find out how many blacks killed blacks?

STU: We can. 193 blacks were killed by whites. 2,447 blacks were killed by blacks. 2,447 to 193.

GLENN: Give me again how many whites kill blacks and how many blacks kill blacks. How many whites killed blacks?

STU: 193.

GLENN: 193. Black people were killed by white people. 193 black people were killed by white people.
How many black people killed black people?

STU: 2,447.

GLENN: Is there an epidemic in America? Yeah, there’s an epidemic in America, isn’t there?
Nigell Vazquez. Twenty-two, black, Chicago. Shot to death.

Edward Davis, 23, black, Chicago, shot to death.

Martell Robinson, 20, shot to death.

In case you’re keeping track at home. This is a whole new group of people.

Shaquille Holmes, 19 years old, black shot to death.

Decari Spivey, black, shot to death at 21.

54-year-old. He made it to 54. Malcolm Warnsby, 54.

Terry cook, 32 black shot to death.

Michael Wright, black 21, shot to death.

Michael Bloodson, 17, black, Chicago, shot to death.

PAT: What was that?

GLENN: That was September.
You want to talk about an epidemic? You want to talk about black lives not mattering?
Stu, how many white people killed black people last year?

STU: 2011, 448 whites were killed by blacks. 193 blacks were killed by whites.

GLENN: How many blacks killed blacks?

STU: 2,447.

GLENN: Those are the numbers.
America, I know that we’re suffering from Common Core math, but those numbers — when you have to use a little arrow sign which is bigger — which is a greater number than the other, it’s pretty damn clear even when you’re using Common Core math.
STU: 91 percent of black people were killed by black people in this particular year. 91 percent.

GLENN: What do you say we actually talk about reconciliation? What do you say we stop listening to the clerics like Al Sharpton. The people who are just using their religion for their own power. What do you say we stop listening to the communists, the anarchists, or anybody else, that has an agenda other than saying all life matters. Why does black life only matter? Why does old life or 20-something or children’s lives or American lives.
What do you say all lives matter, and we try to fix that. To do that, however, we’ll have to start asking each other really honest questions: What the hell is going on in the inner cities. Where’s Al Sharpton there inspect anybody who is honest would be there every weekend. Don’t talk to me about — don’t talk to me about something we agree on. The grand jury appears to be wrong in New York. Let’s figure that one out and let’s do that one together.

GLENN: Just looking at the names of people that have — the names of the people — black lives matter, the names of the people killed on the streets of Chicago, just in the last couple of months.

GLENN: Mr. President, may I ask a question, could any of these young men have been your son? Any of — any of these young men? Did they look like they could be your son?
Al Sharpton, is there any injustice happening here? Is there any epidemic going on here? Where are you, Al Sharpton? Why aren’t you — why aren’t you encouraging people to burn down the convenience stores in Chicago? Why aren’t people protesting in the streets of Chicago and turning over cars — not police cars, because this is mainly black-on-black crime in Chicago. No cops involved here. These are just kids killing kids with illegal guns.
You want to talk about oppression, you want to talk about slavery, slavery exists. It exists in the inner city where you’re a slave to crime. You can’t get your kids out because of the crime. You worry about your kids as they go out. Don’t get shot in the front lawn. You don’t even have to be doing anything wrong. Three years old, shot to death, front lawn. 14-year-old shot from inside the house even though the fighting was happening outside the house.
Where is the justice? Where is the peace? Where are the marches? Where are the civil rights activists? Where are people saying take control of your own damn life? Where is the president on this one? Why are we lumping people together and saying that — as Tavis Smiley did on Bill O’Reilly, giving five names and lumping the real, what appears to me, to be injustice in New York.
That is injustice.
