Jamyla Bolden, age 9 (Facebook)
Last Wednesday night, after returning from a birthday party, Jamyla Bolden, was sitting on her mother’s bed doing her homework when someone walked up to their house and fired five shots into the home killing 9 year old Jamyla and hitting her mother, Kendric Henderson, in the leg.

They also believe the shooter stood close to the front of the house and took aim through the bedroom window. There were five visible bullet holes on the exterior of the house: three in the screens of two windows with shattered glass behind them, and two more in the house’s aluminum siding….
‘When I turned her over I could see the blood coming out of her nose, but I didn’t know where she was shot at. I kept saying ‘I think she’s been shot, call 911,’ Henderson said.
Grieving the loss of a friend, one of Jamyla’s fourth grade classmates asked, “Why did she have to die.”
Where is the outrage?
Where is the Black Lives Matter movement?
HELLO? I CAN’T HEAR YOU, fake Black guy, Shaun King, DeRay McKesson, leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement!
Nothing, just CRICKETS.
The night after Jamyla’s ten-year-old brother witnessed the death of his sister; more than 150 people lead by Black Lives Matter took to the streets of Ferguson to protest the death of an armed black teenager shot and killed by two officers last Wednesday.
According to police reports, just two police officers were preparing to serve a warrant, two black teenagers, armed and in possession of crack cocaine made a run for it out the back door of the home.
The officers pursued the teens and after being ordered to stop, 18-year-old Mansur Ball-Bey (above) refused to drop his gun when ordered to do so, may have even pointed the firearm at the officers and it was a wrap.
Ball-Bey was fatally wounded and pronounced dead at the scene while the second suspect, only identified as being in his mid to late teens, managed to escape, police said.
Police say they found a stolen gun and an extended magazine in Ball-Bey’s possession and that four guns and an unspecified quantity of crack cocaine were recovered at the scene. Several others inside the home were taken into custody without incident….
As usual, Ball-Bey’s death presented opportunity for those with a nefarious agenda and instantly became the next battle cry from Black Lives Matter to create abut chaos, riot, tear and burn down that, which has not yet been rebuilt after they incited last year’s riots that all but destroyed the city of Ferguson, Missouri.
There are elements in the Black community who will white wash an individual fundamentally transforming a thug into a martyr but depending on whom one asks, it has yet to be determined whether or Ball-Bey fits the bill.
According to Ball-Bey’s family, he was a good kid but the following video in which Ball-Bey, a gangster rapper, consorted with gang bangers, possessed guns and bought into the gangster mentality might imply otherwise. (Warning: Raw language)

END OF SIDEBAR
Yet there was not one voice among the agent provocateurs, not one rallying call or demand for justice on behalf of Jamyla Bolden whose death occurred by the gun of that same cancer that festers within the Black community and that two St. Louis police officers defended themselves against just hours before.
Correction: There was one voice, a lone voice but the man had nothing to do with the Black Lives Matter movement.
A lone soldier [my emphasis] came out the next day in protest, demanding that someone come forward with a name and calling for justice for 9-year-old Jamyla and her family. His efforts were barely a blip on the media’s radar and dismissed by Black Lives Matter.
[The above video has been removed from Facebook but you can view it here.]
On the morning after Jamyla Bolden was killed and Black Lives Matter rioted in the streets of Ferguson over the death of a thug, Peggy Hubbard, a mother and former Navy officer, posted a heart wrenching video on her Facebook page.
The video calling out Black Lives Matter’s selective outrage has since gone viral garnering more than 6 ¼ million hits. (Warning: Raw language)
This past weekend, Pastor Jonathan Gentry at West Angeles Church of God in Christ in Los Angeles called out Black Lives Matter during a discussion with Fox Business host, Charles Payne.
Challenging the agent provocateurs/frauds, Gentry asked:
“Where were they at in Chicago?” “Where were you at in Baltimore? Where were you at in Ferguson last week when 9-year-old Jamyla Bolden was shot dead in her own home in that drive-by shooting on Tuesday night?
“…If you want to recognize black lives, recognize the ones that we are killing,” Gentry said.”
This is not the first time that Gentry has taken on the hypocrisy of Black Lives Matter. In a video that went viral, last summer, Gentry took on rioters who burned down parts of Ferguson, Missouri after the death of Michael Brown.
Black Lives Matter is just a meme, talking points, a fraud perpetrated by agent provocateurs looking for a paid day, self-enrichment and advancement in the social justice movement.
In addition, their intent is to get Black people so riled up that they turn out to vote in 2016 but not because the community is demanding that something be done stem the tide of Blacks killing Blacks and non-Blacks throughout America, which far outweighs shootings of Blacks and no-Blacks for that matter, by law enforcement.
While the streets of America are this summer as they are every summer crimson red from the blood of Black men, women and children killed by fellow Blacks in the community, their deaths are of no consequence to Black Lives Matter or their financial backers as proven in shooting death of young Jamyla.
This summer seems like a slaughter fest in urban America and yet not a word from Black Lives Matter who most Americans see as a fraud, distraction and worthless.
Last month, Ohio State Rep. Bill Patmon, called out Black Lives Matter for their overwhelming silence on genocide committed by Planned Parenthood against Blacks during an Ohio right-to-life rally.
Patmon who introduced a bill to defund PP stated, “You hear a lot of demonstrations across the country now about ‘black lives matter.’ Well they skipped one place. They should be in front of Planned Parenthood,”
Black Lives Matter’s response to Patmon….CRICKETS.
Other than the movement itself and the usual suspects looking for an opportunity to destroy and create chaos, the majority of Black Americans do not share the #BlackLivesMatter meme.
In fact, many Blacks recognizing the movement for what it is are appalled by their hypocrisy and their use of the bodies of dead Black people to further their agenda.
Thus, it comes as no surprise that only 31% of Blacks polled by Rasmussen imbibe the meme that #BlackLivesMatter while 64% believe that #AllLivesMatter.
Corroborating that Black Lives Matter is extremely radical and out of touch when asked, “Which statement is closest to your own—black lives matter or all lives matter? Or does neither statement reflect your point of view?”, 78% of American voters believe that #AllLivesMatter.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 11% say black lives matter. Nine percent (9%) say neither statement reflects their point of view. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Thirty-one percent (31%) of black voters say black lives matter is closest to their own views, but just nine percent (9%) of whites and 10% of other minority voters agree. Eighty-one percent (81%) of whites and 76% of other minority voters opt instead for all lives matter, and 64% of blacks agree…
NOTE: A few nights ago, a candlelight vigil was held for Jamyla Bolden. Attendees marched from Jamyla’s home to the spot where Michael Brown was killed.
It is my opinion that conflating the two deaths is a mistake, correction strategy which again while pushing a movement excuses Black on Black crime.
As often happens in the Black community after someone is killed, there are these vigils, politicians come out to speak, people come out in support and once everyone is on record, they all return to their own corners taking comfort in the fact that they came out.
The move is hypocritical to say the least. Politicians put themselves on record for the next election while marching beside thugs with guns who kill their Black neighbors.
Taking advantage of a crisis, talking loud and saying nothing all stand behind demands for state and/or federal funding to “get the kids off the streets” and stem the tide of the violence that plagues the Black community.
In the end, most of the funding gets lost along the way, politicians throw community leaders a bone and the streets continue to shine crimson red from the flow of blood.
