The number of Afrcan Americans murdered in 2020 soared by 32 percent in the year after the killing and subsequent canonisation of St. George Floyd. One criminologist blamed BLM protests for the huge spike by scaring-off cops with their hate - mob tactics the law officers were scared to act against black criminals. Ironically most of the murders of black Americans were committed by other black Americans.

Killings across the whole of society swelled by 30 percent between 2019 and 2020, the largest increase since 1905, but blacks bore the greatest impact of that deadly trend, according to the FBI's Uniform Crime report.
In 2020, 9,941 African Americans met their death at the hand of another human being, compared to 7,484 the year before, an increase of 2,457 murders.
Murders of white people jumped 21 percent from 2019 to 2020, from 5,787 to 7,043.
Sociologist Hannah Meyer, of the Manhattan Institute, says widespread 'defund the police messaging' further incited violence and criminality and affected the murder rate among black people.
She believes that the widespread 'woke' ideology, which demonizes law enforcement and deifies minorities - combined with cuts in funding to many inner city police departments - prompted cops to withdraw from policing areas with high crime, thus allowing black activists to establish no - go zones for police and emergency services.
also said that the Biden administration was wrong to place blame for the crime wave on the COVID pandemic and attributed it directly to the crime wave that followed Floyd's death at the hands of his arresting officers.
In 2020, the year lockdowns and curtailment of civil liberties began, due to the hoax pandemic, 7,043 white people were murdered, but black deaths still outpaced white deaths by nearly 3000 that year.
With whites making up 76 percent of the U.S. population, according to the U.S.
Census bureau, compared to the 13 percent black population, the trend is
even more troubling, thought the greatest percentage increases occurreed in sparsely rural areas and were more likely to be the result of domestic conflict, Pennsylvania,
Illinois, Ohio and California murder rates all jumped at least 36
percent between 2019 and 2020. New York homicides jumped 47 percent with Chicago showing a similar spike. And these increases were from a much higher base figure. Despite the lower percentage rates of increase, the big cities saw far more lives lost to violent crime. We should not forget the most basic trick of propagandists: ten per cent of 1000 is 100, fifty percent of 100 is 50.
