DAILYKENN.com -- The sprinting black male viewed by millions via video as he snatched a Confederate flag from a white man is dead.
32-year-old Muhiyidin Moye, who went by Muhiyidin d'Baha, was shot in the thigh and died later in a New Orleans hospital.
There were no riots. No protests. No whimpers we have heard from Black Lives Matter.
Apparently black lives taken by blacks do not matter.
Flag-waving Southern patriots pose no danger to black Americans. Black Americans post a danger to black Americans.
7,881 blacks were murdered in 2016; nearly all were killed by other blacks. Not one was gunned down by a Confederate-flag toting patriot. That number — 7,881 — is more than twice the number (3,446) of black criminals killed by lynch mobs over the 84-year lynching era (1882 to 1964).
