The Black Lives Matter Lie:  Since the August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, civil rights activists including former President Obama have parroted the lie that police are routinely gunning down unarmed black men because of their race.  It does not matter to the Black Lives Matter movement that 93% of the 7,881 black murder victims last year were killed by black criminals.  It does not matter that while blacks are 13% of the U.S. population, blacks account for over 52% of all murderers.  It does not matter that the Obama Justice Department did not find racial bias in Michael Brown's shooting, or with Freddie Gray (Baltimore) or Eric Garner (New York).  The truth and the data don't matter.  Heather MacDonald has this piece in the City Journal providing more data from the newly-released national crime report for 2016, proving again that black lives don't seem to matter to Black Lives Matter.  Only the narrative matters.
