To Liberals Black Lives Matter – Except for When they Don’t

Black lives matter, they really do, unless you are Jamiel Shaw Jr.

Have you heard his name before?  Have you seen his parents on The View?  Have you seen any athletes or rock stars with Shaw’s picture on their shirts?

Me neither.

Why?  Jamiel Shaw Jr. wasn’t killed by a white police officer or a white assailant.  He was murdered, in cold blood, only because he was black, by an illegal alien.

That is why you have never heard of him, until now.

This is a powerful statement from an American citizen.  How the issue of illegal aliens has ever become a black-white issue or a conservative-liberal issue is beyond my comprehension.  It is a legal vs. illegal issue.  People who are here illegally should be deported.

In other news, Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri last summer, has been cleared of all charges.  Wilson, whose ocular cavity was shattered by Brown, shot the 6’5″, 289 pound teen in self defense.  All testimony and all evidence points to this fact, even from the federal DOJ investigation.

What will happen to Wilson now?  He will bear the scars of the attack both internally and externally for the rest of his life.  How will he ever make a living, pay his legal fees or even walk down the street ever again?  I can’t fathom it.

I actually think that Darren Wilson’s life matters.

I think that Shaw’s life matters, too.  Don’t you?
