Even if he is right about every recent incident being faked, it doesn't justify his throwing in malicious irrelevancies about black-on-black crime that influence the reader to conclude it just doesn't matter when white cops hurt/kill black men without cause. Even one incident of 'white cop killing black man' is too many, and the ongoing repugnant focus on black-on-black killing delegitimizes the evilness of such white/black killings.
This pretty much exactly parallels the ongoing right-wing attack on the Black Lives Matter movement which quite purposefully delegitimizes the desire of minority communities not to have their men butchered by police.
I would recommend not to get too much caught up in this, fbenario. These kind of issues are never solved politically, so discussing them is hardly ever useful. We would go on forever trying to prove that black people hurt whites more than whites hurt black people, or viceversa. This whole BLM thing is most likely a distraction: Since these things never come to resolution and are forever divisive, like abortion, gay marriage etc, they are perfect to keep us all busy while giving us some crumbs of moral thought to believe in.
