Black lives matter. Indeed they do but . . .

you are protesting in the wrong part of town.

The 2013 FBI Uniform Crime Report, a compilation of annual crime statistics, also shows, 83 percent of white victims were killed by white offenders; 90 percent of black victims were killed by black offenders; 14 percent of white victims were killed by black offenders; and 7.6 percent of black victims were killed by white offenders.

First, it is hard to track how many blacks are killed by white police officers. There are all types of reports, suppositions, theories, etc.

We can’t say more blacks are doing bad things than whites because that is 1) politically incorrect and 2) skewed by the fact there are more whites than blacks.

Anecdotally, I live near Oakland where it seems a black man is murdered every day.

1,683 per 100,000 residents. Oakland’s high levels of poverty and proximity to drug corridors combine to generate lots of violence. The city across the Bay from San Francisco ranks first nationwide in violent crimes.

Since black lives matter use this map to figure out where to march. http://www.crimemapping.com/map.aspx?aid=aabb6970-e7b7-4ce2-b155-cf04843f1625

There won’t be a lot of press, or stores to loot but that isn’t why you protest is it?

USACE says 16% of dams it operates are extremely or very high risk.

Lt. General Thomas Bostick (hey, I know him) says the nation is
usacelogofalling behind on maintenance (that means fixing things up).

He says that 16% of the dams the Corps operates are categorized as extremely or very high risk. Add to that, one in nine of the nation’s bridges are rated as structurally deficient (that means dangerous) makes you want to post-pone that trip across the country.

But I have the fix. Stop all foreign aid for as long as it take to rebuild our infrastructure. How many jobs would that create?

Let’s take care of Americans and America first!
