an impassioned plea for change within the black community

Pastor Jonathan Gentry is a passionate speaker who is very concerned with crime in the black community here in the US.

His classic line: “I am going to tell you what you need to hear as opposed to what you want to hear.” – is appropriate and describes his message well.

These 2 short videos on YouTube are important to consider.

 

 

This first video was in response to the rioting, looting and arson that erupted after Michael Brown was fatally shot in Ferguson, Missouri in August, 2014.  Approximately 6 minutes in length on YouTube, click here to listen to it.

an impassioned plea for blacks to change

In an earlier video, dealing with the Trayvon Martin case, we have this 3 minute long video speech.

Black on Black crime needs to stop

This man does force us to think about these issues in a different light.  As well, he shows us that the black community in the US is not completely monolithic in its thinking.

We may have to get a web cam ourselves and start posting short talks on YouTube.  It can be an effective means to getting one’s message to a wider audience.

  1. Google “The Color of Crime”. Here is a brief write-up on it.

    Major Findings

    The evidence suggests that if there is police racial bias in arrests it is negligible. Victim and witness surveys show that police arrest violent criminals in close proportion to the rates at which criminals of different races commit violent crimes.
    There are dramatic race differences in crime rates. Asians have the lowest rates, followed by whites, and then Hispanics. Blacks have notably high crime rates. This pattern holds true for virtually all crime categories and for virtually all age groups.
    In 2013, a black was six times more likely than a non-black to commit murder, and 12 times more likely to murder someone of another race than to be murdered by someone of another race.
    In 2013, of the approximately 660,000 crimes of interracial violence that involved blacks and whites, blacks were the perpetrators 85 percent of the time. This meant a black person was 27 times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa. A Hispanic was eight times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa.
    In 2014 in New York City, a black was 31 times more likely than a white to be arrested for murder, and a Hispanic was 12.4 times more likely. For the crime of “shooting” — defined as firing a bullet that hits someone — a black was 98.4 times more likely than a white to be arrested, and a Hispanic was 23.6 times more likely.
    If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent.
    In an all-white Chicago, murder would decline 90 percent, rape by 81 percent, and robbery by 90 percent.

    The above is quite shocking, especially when you consider how the mainstream media doesn’t ever breathe a word about it. Their failure to address this issue is really inexcusable. This country has become extremely polarized, and the MSM is largely responsible for simply not presenting the facts about “the color of crime”.

    Surely the above isn’t politically “correct”, but these are the facts that liberals cannot debate. Their only defense is name-calling.

    • Stephen, we thought the 2 links we posted were quite good. It is not clear if you watched these.

      Yes, the statistics are important to keep in mind. The larger issue, or one of the larger issues, is the lack of family formation in the black community which contributes so much to the problems plaguing their community.

      Liberals do not have workable approaches. They just keep doubling down on their failed, unworkable programs. So, yes, they resort to ad hominem attacks on any who disagree with them. In fact, we cannot have an open, honest and serious debate on almost any major problem in the US because the liberals control the debate by framing the debate and their lackeys in the media run with the liberal line on every issue. Any objective observer has to conclude that liberalism (aka “progressive”) has been an abysmal failure.

      Blacks overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama. Yet, the question they cannot answer – and rarely gets voiced – is: what did Obama do for the blacks? He did nothing constructive or substantive for them. Blacks vote overwhelmingly for the Democrat Party. But that party’s policies keep blacks down.

      • Oh, I definitely DID watch the links you posted, before commenting, Larry. I basically agreed with what the guy was saying. There are a number of other black YouTubers, like Pastor James David Manning, “The Doctor of Common Sense” (E.T. Williams), Tommy Sotomayor, and others, who also fall into this category. They all basically say there is something wrong with black people. I tend to agree. And while I also agree that liberal policies, particularly those which motivate black women to keep their husbands out of the house, are a huge part (if not the main part) of the problem, there still remains the disproportionately large differences between the races in their overall rates of criminal violence. This is being whitewashed if not totally ignored by the media, because everybody is more worried about being called a racist than they are in simply telling the truth. This has simply got to stop, or there will never be an end to the violence committed by blacks (and to a lesser extent Hispanics) against ALL races. I would also add Arab Muslims to this list of violent offenders, although the FBI doesn’t seem to have crime statistics on them yet here in the U.S. Hopefully this will be remedied under the Trump administration, without Comey.

        Basically I am not faulting ALL blacks, just like I would not fault ALL Jews for the Zionist/Communist agenda of the Jew World Order. I simply want the vast majority of blacks (and Jews) to start recognizing there are some serious problems with their RACE, that are not going away until they start taking responsibility for their own behavior. I believe this is exactly what your guy was saying in his videos.

      • Thanks Stephen. I agree with your insights. As to the Jews, not every Jew is working subversively to weaken and eventually destroy Western civilization, but there is no denying the fact that this cultural rot and the attack on Christian values has been directed by Jews.
