NFL star Don Carey who plays as defensive back for the Detroit Lions has some problems with the Black Lives Matter movement, as he believes the movement is missing out on a single huge point: the lives of the unborn black babies being killedÂ while still in the womb.
â€œYes â€˜blackâ€™ lives matter,â€ Carey wrote in a Sunday column forÂ the Detroit Free Press.Â â€This also includes those still within the womb.â€
The NFL player opened his op-ed by noting that when the Black Lives Matter movement first emerged, he was bothÂ â€œenamored and repelled,â€ but was struck over the ghastly number of black babies being killed in the womb, which he believes is complete hypocrisy for the movement whoÂ says that black lives matter.
â€œEnamored, because as an African-American man, I have experienced and seen injustices committed against my people, sometimes due to no fault of their own.”
Carey went on to say that the dire abortion statistics completely ignored by the Black Lives Matter activistsÂ quickly turned him off from the movement,â€due to the narrow mind-set and irony that exists at its roots.â€
â€œAccording to a study by the New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, more African-American babies were aborted (31,328) in New York than were born (24,758) there in 2012. Needless to say, this number is severely repulsive,â€ Carey wrote. â€œYet, weâ€™ve heard nothing from those within the camp of Black Lives Matter on the subject.â€
The player, who describes himself on social media asÂ â€œdisciple of Jesus Christ who happens to play in the NFL,”Â went on:
â€œWe are so focused on the injustices done by a few wayward police officers that we ignore the blatant disregard for life within our own culture.”
Carey concludedÂ that in order for the Black Lives Matter movement to be successful, the movement must live up to the â€œtotality of its name,â€ and ignoring the unborn black babies being killed through abortion makes the movementÂ leadersÂ hypocrites.
“Yes black” lives matter. This also includes those still within the womb. Those who seek change must first be proponents of that change or else those on the outside looking in will ultimately view them as hypocrites.”
Wonderfully said, sir! Â You can read Carey’s entire rant here:
