LETTER: When do black lives really matter?

Letters to the Editor stock image

Do black lives matter only when police are involved in isolated incidences of criminal or civil law violations? Resisting arrest can lead to unfortunate consequences and unjustifiable death, as happened with George Floyd.

Do black lives really matter elsewhere? For example, Baltimore, Chicago or New York City where annual killings of blacks by blacks total 20 or more each week. Where is the outrage, riots, looting and arson?

Isn’t looting, arson and rioting conducted inexcusably against fellow man, who may be Asiatic, colored or white, also a racist act? Why do people condone this lawless criminal behavior?

Acceptance isn’t justified by some by distorting American history nor by others in ignorance of our proud history.

Even statues of famous people, our forefathers, have become targets!

This behavior in American must cease before total anarchy becomes more than just a thought.
