Well, this is inconvenient for the “If you disagree with leftist policies, you’re a racist” narrative. The Oakland, California, NAACP issued an open letter condemning the city’s rampant crime that’s been caused by “anti-police rhetoric,” “the movement to defund the police” and the “District Attorney’s unwillingness to charge and prosecute people.” Wait, I thought all those things existed because police were so racist and that doing away with policing was what black people wanted, even though they are far and away the greatest victims of the resulting crime wave.

The NAACP letter goes on to say that Oakland has an “intolerable public safety crisis” and “elected leaders must declare a state of emergency and bring resources together from the city, the county, and the state to end the crisis. We are 500 police officers short of the number that experts say Oakland needs. Our 911 system does not work. Residents now know that help will not come when danger confronts them. Worse, criminals know that too…Murders, shootings, violent armed robberies, home invasions, car break-ins, sideshows, and highway shootouts have become a pervasive fixture of life in Oakland...”

“Women are targeted by young mobs and viciously beaten and robbed in downtown and uptown neighborhoods. Asians are assaulted in Chinatown. Street vendors are robbed in Fruitvale. News crews have their cameras stolen while they report on crime. PG&E workers are robbed and now require private security when they are out working. Everyone is in danger.” Residents “are afraid to venture out of their homes,” and “people are moving out in droves.”

The NAACP calls on residents of all races “to speak out against crime and stop allowing themselves to be shamed into silence. It is not racist or unkind to want to be safe from crime.”

I could not possibly agree more! Now, if the NAACP would only stop endorsing politicians who claim that it IS racist and unkind to want to be safe from crime.

    The reason these politicians don't care about crime is that they get their own private or police protection. even worse it is paid for by the same people that these politicians don't care are threatened by crime. If they had to face the same threat of crime as the citizens of their cities, states or nation they would stop being easy on criminals and enforce the laws on the books.
    You can't only enforce the laws you like, without expecting other people to disobey the laws that they don't like. So if there are laws a politician doesn't like or believe in they should use the system set up to change laws, not just disobey them.
