We’ve said it before: whoever came up with the name “Black Lives Matter” is brilliant. If you disagree with the organization, it means you don’t believe black lives matter. But if you ask if a black life mattered when taken by another black person, you’re reminded that BLM is ostensibly about systemic racism in police departments, not black-on-black crime.

A lot of people have been bringing up in the wake of the Ma’Khia Bryant shooting an incident in Cincinnati, Ohio where a 13-year-old girl is being charged with murder after stabbing another 13-year-old to death — a story that’s not making headlines in the national news.

Weren’t we just assured by activist Bree Newsome that “teenagers have been having fights involving knives for eons” and “we do not need police to address these situations by showing up to the scene and using a weapon against one of the teenagers”?

We were assured that defunding the police and diverting the money to things like night classes and Planned Parenthood would solve the problem.

If Rep. Cori Bush thinks 16-year-old Bryant was a baby, how about this 13-year-old? Or the 11-month-old who was shot and killed?

Police had been called to the scene but arrived too late to prevent the stabbing. Someone wanted the police there.

This one made local TV at least.
