As Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute has written, from January to June 2008 in New York City, 83 percent of all identified gun assailants were black and 15 percent were Hispanics.
Together, blacks and Hispanics accounted for 98 percent of gun assaults.
Translated: If a cabdriver is going to be mugged or murdered in New York City by a fare, 49 times out of 50 his assailant or killer will be black or Hispanic.
Fernando Mateo of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers has told his drivers, "Profile your passengers" for your own protection. "The God's honest truth is that 99 percent of the people that are robbing, stealing, killing these guys are blacks and Hispanics."
Fernando Mateo is himself black and Hispanic.
........if the purpose here is to turn this into a national black-white face-off, instead of a mutual search for truth and justice, it is succeeding marvelously well.
This is not a statement or an article on racism. This is a bold statement of truth, exposing hatred and the agenda of revenge. I have written much on the hatred seething under the skin of many of the Irish Republicans, which is unforgiveness. America is witnessing the same trend. Revenge blackens the heart of the person who holds unforgiveness in his or her spirit. It is a downward spiral of envy hatred, conspiracy, death. For those who believe in an afterlife, revenge spells Hell, eternal damnation. How to break the the spiral is only, only by forgiving those who hate you. That is the only way. As we enter Holy Week, we hear the Divine cry, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."
