Ben Shapiro provided an excellent analysis of the Baltimore riots and debunked five liberal race myths. Shapiro writes, “But the riots should also demonstrate conclusively that leftist myths about what drives race riots are just that: myths.”
- The “White Police” Myth.
- The “Evil Police Chief” Myth.
- The “Evil Mayor” Myth.
- The “Disproportionate White Power Structure” Myth.
- The “Not Enough Government” Myth.
“Modern race riots do not occur because of the supposed white superstructure or a legacy of governmental underservice. They occur because valueless rioters act in valueless ways. Baltimore is evidence that glossing over lack of values with leftist pabulum about social justice doesn’t stop cities from burning.”
