The Full Count - Heather MacDonald
In an earlier episode of The Full Count author and social critic Heather MacDonald told us about the falsehoods behind the Black Lives Matter propaganda. Heather described how cops were being blamed in the media for targeting blacks-- even as they ignore murder rates among black teenagers that are ten times the combined rate of whites and latino teenagers.
In her City Journal column she has pointed out FBI statistics that show in 2016 just 16 unarmed blacks-- in a population of 37 million-- were killed by cops. She’s shown how a 20-year decline in violent crime was reversed in 2015— coincidental with the Obama administration’s embrace of the Black Lives Matter agenda that blames cops.
Needless to say such candour has attracted the attention of the extreme Left that tries to ban such heresies.
Students at Claremont College said, “Heather MacDonald is a fascist, a white supremacist, a warhawk, a transphobe, a queerphobe, a classist, and ignorant of interlocking systems of domination that produce the lethal conditions under which oppressed peoples are forced to live,”
The Atlantic magazine wrote "If you believe that the criminal justice system is racially biased, you need to know Heather MacDonald. She’ll mess with your mind and make you either up your politico-cultural game or admit you were wrong.”
This pushback against a courageous researcher with real data is why we always enjoy having her here on The Full Count.
