Black Lies Matter: Why Lies Matter to the Race Grievance Industry by Taleeb Starkes
Since 1980, blacks have routinely accounted for almost half of America’s annual homicide victims, and more than half of the perpetrators — all while being a minor thirteen percent of the national populace. Yet, a certain black-based industry — which specializes in nurturing comfortable lies while burying uncomfortable truths — propagates a notion that “racism” is the foremost issue facing black Americans, and white cops are blood-thirsty enforcers. Moreover, this cunning, race-peddling entity knows that it’s easier to lie to blacks than to convince blacks that they’ve been lied to. Thus, black “lies” are good for business… black “lives” are good for nothing (except exploitation).

Discrimination and Disparities gathers a wide array of empirical evidence to challenge the idea that different economic outcomes can be explained by any one factor, be it discrimination, exploitation, or genetics.
